The best body confidence experience

Like so many of my clients, Maddie has been on a journey of self-discovery and is learning to love and appreciate herself. That journey has not only helped her lose weight but led to a new career for her, she is now a weight loss consultant herself, she now helps others to lose weight.

She has graciously written about her body confidence experience and allowed me to share some of her images, to encourage women in a similar position to her to gain the confidence to have their own boudoir photoshoot.

Here's her story and some of my favourite images from her boudoir body confidence experience.

Tell me a little about yourself

I am Maddie and 52 and I have struggled with self-image all my life as I have always been overweight, but since losing 5 stone and dropping 4 dress sizes and treating myself to breast implants, I have gained so much confidence and finally feel happy in my own skin.

How did you become aware of Lone Barn Boudoir?

I knew of friends who had done similar shoots and I found you on google.

What inspired you to get in touch and book a session with me?

I decided that I would create an album of pics for my hubby's 50th birthday, so that when I'm old and it's all gone south! I have something to look back on and feel proud of.

How did you feel about your body before your shoot?

I felt ok, not overly confident and there are parts I don't like.

Did you treat yourself to some new lingerie before your shoot, if you did where was it from?

Yes - Ann Summers.

What was your biggest fear before your shoot?

That I would look fat in the pics.

How did you feel when you arrived at the studio?

I was made to feel at ease.

Having my hair and makeup done - I'm normally useless at it!

How would you describe your boudoir photoshoot to your best friend?

The best body confidence experience I have ever had - not once did I feel awkward or embarrassed.

How did you feel when you saw your boudoir images at your viewing?

I couldn't actually believe that was me in the pictures. I was amazed at how I looked on film.

How do you feel about yourself after your shoot?

I feel so much more confident and happy and have been signed by a modelling agency 🙂

What advice would you give to other women considering a boudoir shoot?

Just do it - you won't ever regret it and do it for you, no one else!

Are your thinking about your own having your own body confidence experience?

Have you been on a weight loss journey, but are struggling to celebrate the progress you have made? I have met so many women that can't see the changes in their bodies, feeling stuck not loving the changes they have created.

A boudoir photoshoot is a perfect gift to give to yourself, a pampering empowering and body confidence experience that will change the way that you see yourself. Seeing yourself through someone else's eyes can be life-changing. You'll enjoy an amazing experience and have stunning images of yourself to cherish and to look at every time you need that little confidence boost, a permanent reminder of how fabulous you are.
