“Till this moment, I never knew myself”
When my client contacted me about booking a painterly nude boudoir session, I was over the moon with excitement. I adore nude boudoir sessions, because they invoke feelings of vulnerability, authenticity, and renaissance. After we set a date for her session, I was hard at work finding the perfect Airbnb location. This adorable little cottage nestled in DFW was the perfect spot. Whether it was the floral couch, directional window light, or gorgeous vanity – I just knew it was the perfect location.
She loves literature, especially books like Pride and Prejudice. I love the quote, ““Till this moment I never knew myself,” from Pride and Prejudice. It felt as if that quote fit her as she began to see herself for the first time during her session. Boudoir oftentimes has a way of showing us our bare selves. No longer covered by clothes and facades, we are able to see the person under our daily skin. I love hearing clients tell me how their boudoir photos truly changed the way they saw themselves.
How did you feel when you saw your boudoir photos?
“It’s like I’m looking at someone else. I never knew I could look like that. It’s an amazing feeling for sure!”
Did your session change the way you view your body?
“I feel more confident in my own skin. I don’t really see what I disliked before. I’m more confident. I wish I’d done it sooner, but I’m equally glad I waited to find the right photographer.”
What would you tell someone who was hesitant in booking a boudoir session?
“You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Even before I got my pictures back, I felt more beautiful and more confident. I wish I had done it sooner. Even now that I have, I’m already pondering my next session.”
Would you recommend Royal Lune Photo?
“Without hesitation. Heather makes one feel comfortable in their own skin. There was never an instant where I felt judged or ashamed. She has a free-flow style of working, that when paired with her level of preparation, make her very flexible for any number of situations. Heather, seemingly effortlessly, brings out the best in you and captures it on film. Her words of encouragement and affirmation do wonders for the soul.”
