I took away not only STUNNING photos, but also a boost in self-esteem. I have shot with Olivia in the past; her level of positivity and encouragement is always to be expected. The thing about shooting with Olivia, is that you will always walk out feeling more confident than you came in.
Olivia's incredible talent and ability to capture all bodies, in every season, in every color. These are things I already knew, but to be part of the experience sheds light on her immense talent.
Olivia always makes me feel comfortable during a photoshoot and for that I am always grateful. Music, laughing, girl talk, there is never a shortage of fun during our photoshoots!! Having photos of you that make you feel good about you is not a vain thing, it's empowerment and self-love.
I have loved seeing your work, the photos themselves inspired me. I left feeling beautiful in every aspect. I was surprised how quickly I became comfortable, I didn’t want it to end! It absolutely surprised me. I loved my photos, I was prepared to be hyper critical of my body and this wasn’t my reaction at all. Seeing them made me want to do another session! The entire experience from sitting having my make up and hair done to seeing my photos in the studio made me feel strong, beautiful and SUPER SEXY!!!
I saw my friend's photos and to watch her step into empowerment. I wanted to feel that way. It made me feel beautiful for the first time in a long time.
I was inspired to book this session to really appreciate my body. As someone who has experienced some pretty major weight loss and a person with a chronic illness that greatly effects the way their body looks, I wanted to honor everything that it has done for me. I think boudoir photography is one of the most beautiful forms and I truly feel as If I am honoring myself with these photos.
I was expecting to be a little more uncomfortable in lingerie in front of the camera, but you made the situation so comfortable and I was so surprised. I appreciate how welcoming and warm you made the whole experience.
Once I saw the photo reveal, I was blown away. You’ve done an amazing job with these photos and working with you is a highlight of my year.
I’ve always wanted to do a shoot like this and figured if I didn’t do it now I might never! I felt a lot more comfortable than I thought I would. My idea of what boudoir was was very limited so to be able to wear outfits I felt confident in made me realize it didn’t need to be so daunting. I thought I would have a hard time getting to 20 images but in reality I had a hard time cutting it down!
What inspired me to book the session was to do something I never thought I’d ever do. It really pushed me out of my comfort zone. I’ve always been on the more modest side and it was quite freeing to break out of that. It’s definitely not as scary as I was expecting! Once the camera was in front of me, kinda felt like an out of body experience and I ended up not being in my head and just enjoying the moment. I really enjoyed that. It’s such a vulnerable thing to experience but It can be quite the beautiful experience if you just let loose. When I saw the photos I was in awe. I was having trouble finding ones I didn’t like. I’ve never felt more confident than I did with my shoot.
