Ms. S Boudoir Experience

Ms. S Boudoir Experience

What/who made you decide to book a boudoir session? 

I wanted to do it as a surprise gift for my husband who was on deployment for our anniversary

What made you choose Hillary West Studios?

A co-worker at the time suggested it. I was very apprehensive and unsure of the whole process until I met Hillary. After our first consultation I knew she was the right person and heard my fears

What were you nervous about going into your session?

Am I going to look fat or stupid? Is Hillary going to judge me? (Let’s face it we all fear being judged) Hillary doesn't judge and made me feel sexy!

What was your favorite part of the experience?

The time an attention to detail Hillary took. You can tell through the progression of my photos how comfortable Hillary made me feel and it wasn’t forced

 How do you feel now that you've completed the session?

Hillary said probably one of the most profound things to me that “This is how my husband sees me, even when I don’t see myself this way”. After talking to him he practically said the same thing. I realized I was a lot harder on myself then I needed to be.

What advice would you give to women interested in doing a session?

Get out of your own head. Whatever it is holding you back just do it you won’t regret it!

I am a body positive boudoir photographer based in Norfolk, Virginia. Since 2015, I have been empowering women, and sometimes men, to embrace their bodies and celebrate their unique beauty through photography. My passion for boudoir photography stems from my own struggles with body image and self-acceptance. I believe that everyone has the right to feel confident and beautiful in their own skin, regardless of their size, shape, or imperfections. My goal is to create a safe and inclusive space for my clients to express themselves and feel comfortable in front of the camera. I am dedicated to helping my clients see themselves in a new light and feel proud of who they are.
