The boudoir debacle

So I signed up for a second boudoir photo session.  Mostly because I figure it will take me a few times to get it right.  If once is good, twice is better, natch.

But the process of trying to schedule my session with the photographer was an absolute nightmare.  First I had to take pictures of myself in my lingerie and send them to the photographer.  So of course I did this and the pictures all looked like hell.  But whatever, I did it.  Now I’m ready to schedule my session.  We went back and forth on dates.  I felt like I was being given the run around.  Is this his business or not?  He was unprofessional.  Not getting back to me in a timely manner.  Not replying to my texts.  Changing dates on me.  It felt like he didn’t want my business.

I couldn’t help but feel like I was being singled out because I wasn’t a size 2.  Would he be as challenging to work with if I looked like Kate Upton?

Of course the WHOLE point of this process is to face my fears and body issues and just have a beautiful time being me.

And now I’m feeling a little gun shy.

I’ll get over it.  I’ll force myself to get over it.

And as a promise to myself and a friend, I snapped this pic of me in a man’s white dress shirt.

See…. I can be photogenic!

    • Thank you. I have to say that the whole experience of sending semi naked pictures of myself to a photographer and not having him take my picture was pretty traumatic. If only he knew how much courage it took to send those pics in the first place…

      • I do the same thing on the other end of the camera. Every time I post I feel nervous and scared. But I keep on trying lol. Your blog is always fun for me to read and I love the occasional photo of you. You are very very beautiful

  1. That’s a beautiful photo! Could be that it’s better it didn’t work out with that photographer. If he’s unprofessional with treating potential clients, how would he act when it’s time to take photos? I hope it does work out with another photographer, and they treat you right.

    • Exactly, you’re right. I would’ve had a horrible experience getting photographed by him. Still, I wish it’d been a less traumatic experience for me. Ugh. I still feel used.

  2. Don’t worry about it,you are photogenic and you will get pictures you are happy with-Regards Rob
