I think it’d be a bad experience for anyone who is self conscious ;

Sorry you had a bad experience, but hopefully the pics will make up for it!

Ugh! What a ridiculous experience. I’m sorry that your photographer was such a witch about it all. Hopefully the pictures will be as gorgeous as you wanted despite the crazy posing. Michiru4ever posted her DIY boudoir pics plus a detailed explanation of how she did it and with what equipment. If the photog’s pics end up not being what you want, maybe you can DIY some at home. ((Hugs))

The problem there was not with boudoir — it was with your photographer. Unless SHE paid YOU to model for her, she was providing you a service, and your ideas and preferences should have been paramount. She sounds completely unprofessional. You don’t argue with a client, you don’t bring other people into the shoot without asking, and you CERTAINLY don’t conduct personal business on a shoot!

I’m sorry that you had such a terrible experience. I don’t think it’s the norm. I hope that some of the pictures are worth it, but unless you LOVE LOVE them, I wouldn’t buy the CD. The whole thing is ridiculous.

The fact that she didnt even consider your concerns and how uncomfortable you were would make me end it right there before it was even done.   Boudoir pictures are a very personal and private thing to have done(physically and emotionally).   The minute I felt I was uncomfortable I would not continue.

i really hope the pictures turned out great for your sake.

Wow, what is she? Is she a professional? She sure doesn’t sound like it. It’s gross. I mean, is she a fellow woman? How could someone be so inconsiderate?

I am so sorry.

Geez…. I’m not all that self-conscious about my body, but this session would seriously bother me too. So like PPs have said its not like its just you or just you being self-conscious. This photographer is seriously unprofessional.

First of all, she should have definitely listened to you more and really taken into consideration your concerns about your veil.

And bringing in the other lady? That is so terrible. I’m sorry that she did that. That’s just so unprofessional.

My boudoir photographer listened to me and didn’t bring random people in the room… the only other person who saw some of what was going on was the make-up artist and she helped a bit with making sure my hair and make up was all in place. There were no other random people brought in.

Your session sounds awful. I think I would have just started crying, so you did better than I would!

How much did you pay for this session that now you have to pay $300 for the CD?

You’re the client, and from the second things became uncomfortable for you, you should of told her exactly what YOU wanted.  She sounds unprofessionally, amerturish, and rude. If there’s a way to give her feed back anywhere copy what you just wrote here onto that feedback.


Hopefully she’ll learn her lesson.

There are VERY few people who aren’t self-conscious about SOME aspect of their physical appearance. As the professional you hired, she should have respected that… along with your boundries, preferences, comfort, etc. She sounds like she’s a little off. I hope the pictures are amazing, though… or that they can at least be photoshopped into amazingness! :o)
