What are your thoughts on buying lingerie or a boudoir shoot as a gift for yourself vs “for your partner”?
I think lingerie should always be for yourself in the first place. If you feel good, you look your best. Confidence can be very sexy for you and your partner. Also buying lingerie that you think your partner will like but you are not comfortable in, can backfire. You never know how a partner will respond so make sure you feel fabulous and then your partner will follow 🙂
What made you choose Boudoir by Nomi?
Nomi is unpretentious, professional, relaxed, and warm, that is why I choose to work with her. She listens to your wishes and I love her esthetics. The studio is beautiful. Nomi also has the same philosophy when it comes to inclusivity and making people feel fabulous!
What were you nervous about going into your session?
Like most people, I have some body image issues, even though I have an inclusive, body-positive lingerie boutique. I do have to tell myself that I am worthy and beautiful and not compare myself to the beauty standard that we see in the media. I was nervous to be sexy and take myself seriously. I show bras on my body all the time but usually in a happy go lucky kinda way.
What was your favorite part of the experience?
I really loved how relaxed Nomi made me feel and how lightheaded it was, even though the pictures look so beautiful and sensual, we had a lot of fun. I also loved having my make up done professionally, then seeing the results and being so happy with them, was amazing
How do you feel now that you’ve completed the session?
Ecstatic. I love the pictures and can’t stop looking at them. Nomi captured parts of me that I love and am proud of. It is nice to look at yourself and feel pride and not a critique, the thing we have the tendency to do to ourselves.
