athena'S maternity BOUDOIR SESSION
ASHLEE JO PHOTOGRAPHY
LITTLE ROCK BOUDOIR
How did you hear about AJP?
My sister is an ambassador & told me about it
What inspired you to book a session?
My sister spoke to me about her photo shoots/sessions & encouraged me to book a session. I wanted to take maternity pictures.
How did you feel leading up to your Boudoir Session?
I felt nervous & shy. I get easily anxious doing everyday tasks & then being pregnant on top of all that just amplified my feelings. I didn’t want to feel uncomfortable or exposed especially during this vulnerable time in my life.
How did you feel during your boudoir session?
In the beginning it was terrifying but as the session went on I felt more & more comfortable. I was skeptical at first due to the nature of the positions however Ashlee captured this beautiful time in my life perfectly.
What was your favorite part about your session?
I didn’t want to be sexualized at all during this shoot, & not being too familiar with this style of photography it made me nervous. However Ashlee assured me that the nature/positions were just perception. I appreciated how Ashlee helped position me in these poses & laughed along with me while she adjusted me in my positions.
How did you feel after your boudoir session?
I felt a sense of relief & comfort knowing i was photographed in a safe & comfortable environment. Not once at all did i feel pushed to do something i wasn’t comfortable & any concerns i did have Ashlee talked them out to me & explained the concept.
One or two words to describe how you felt when you saw your final images?
What advice would you give to someone who is thinking about doing a session?
I think that if you’re considering getting pictures done that you should just do it. I’m glad i got to have this experience. Being pregnant & taking these photos made me feel better about the changes i’m facing during this time in my life. Ashlee is very professional & captures the body beautifully on camera.
