SEEING MYSELF THROUGH CLARE’S EYES HAS DEFINITELY HELPED MEND MY DOUBTS

My boudoir shoot was one of the best experiences I have ever had. After a very tough time and a heavy depression, my self-esteem was more than down and I had serious troubles seeing myself as an attractive woman. During one of my therapy sessions, I told my therapist about my friend who had had a boudoir shoot with Clare (her pictures were mind blowing) and that I was thinking
about doing it too, to help boost my self-esteem a little bit. My therapist strongly recommended it, so I decided to book with Clare.

The shoot was so much fun, Clare clearly knows what she is doing. She is so encouraging, warm-hearted and – with no doubt – an excellent photographer. The result for me was overwhelming. I cried and grabbed Clare’s hand in the viewing! Seeing myself through Clare’s eyes has definitely helped mend my doubts.

I NOW ACKNOWLEDGE PROUDLY I AM A SIZE 18 AND I AM SEXY!

I was introduced to Clare by one of my best friends who had a shoot done.  My best friend is gorgeous and about size 6.  I wanted to do it but I was nervous and quite insecure because I am a size 18, not a size 6!  I emailed Clare and introduced myself and told her I would love to do this but I don’t look like my best friend.  The encouragement and support I got was amazing.

The whole day was amazing. Of course nerves took over but the Prosecco helps with that! Everything about the day was just magical. Alexandra was amazing with the make-up. I wanted a natural look and it was stunning. In the photo shoot, Clare was so reassuring and supportive. I knew I just had to go with it and trust her but it took me a bit to relax.

On the night of the viewing I was excited and the nerves kicked in again.  I was so looking forward to seeing the final outcome.  Would I look ok?  Then I saw them.  They were the most beautiful photos I had ever seen and in my head a voice kept saying…wow that’s really me!  Every photo showed a different part of me and my personality.  I was overwhelmed.  Every photo is “me” and every photo is beautiful and sexy.  I now acknowledge proudly I am a size 18 and I am sexy! No more nerves and my insecurities have diminished quite considerably.

This has been a journey of self-discovery and I will forever be grateful to Clare for being part of it. I wish every woman did this to see how truly beautiful they are no matter what body size or shape they have.

I ALMOST CAN’T BELIEVE IT’S ME

The album arrived yesterday and I absolutely love it! It’s even nicer than I expected it to be. Thank you so much for the amazing experience and for these beautiful photos! It was an experience that I won’t soon forget.

The pictures are absolutely amazing!!! Seriously, I almost can’t believe that it is me in the photographs. I can’t be more happy that I have done this.

I had decided to do this completely for myself because I really wanted to celebrate being a woman before I get older and think I never really appreciated what I had, but I never imagined they would be as amazing as they are. I feel so vain because I have literally gone through the album 100+ times! I had not even told my boyfriend that I was doing this because I didn’t want to make it about him or for him at all but now that I have seen the photos I think I will have to maybe get something with one of the photos for him to have as well for our anniversary.

IT SEEMED THE PERFECT OPPORTUNITY TO CAPTURE HOW I LOOK AT THIS MOMENT IN MY LIFE

I stumbled upon the idea of doing the boudoir shoot when I saw an advert for an event Clare was running. A boudoir shoot was something I had never even remotely considered doing, but I looked at Clare’s website out of curiosity and I was struck by how beautiful the photos were. I immediately booked the shoot, as it seemed the perfect opportunity to capture how I look at this moment in my life. I was proud of how I looked after having my two daughters and finally getting back to my normal self again (or as normal as a mom can feel!). As I was leaving my house for the shoot, I was very apprehensive, however, Clare was so easy to work with and she really put me at ease.

CLARE MADE ME FEEL AT EASE

Clare made me feel at ease… she is a very nice, welcoming and a sensitive person and 100% professional. I could easily trust her and after a few minutes I was not only feeling comfortable but very much enjoying it!
Two of my images hang on the wall in our living room and two, more intimate ones, hang on the wall in our bedroom. Normally I am not a “picture on the wall” type of woman, but these ones are just so professional and creative that we simply love them. My boyfriend LOOOOVVVEEED the pictures and it was such a boost for my self confidence – Amazing!

A BOOST IN CONFIDENCE

I was so nervous but Clare has a lot of experience and is really able to make you feel comfortable and confident. She knows what she is doing to make sure you have the best images. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a boost in confidence for themselves or someone in search of a special gift.

THE SESSION WAS A BEAUTIFUL CELEBRATION OF ME – ALL OF ME, NOT JUST MY BODY – AND GAVE ME AN INDESCRIBABLE BOOST GOING INTO SURGERY

(Breast Cancer Survivor)

“I had long wanted to have a boudoir photo shoot but just hadn’t managed to schedule a session. A breast cancer diagnosis and imminent surgery prompted me into action. My reconstruction surgery was not only going to involve my affected breast but would result in scarring and changes to other areas of my body. It was so important for me to capture images of my body, including fine art nudes, before these major changes.

I liked the style and finesse of Clare’s boudoir photography and contacted her on short notice. Clare was equally passionate as I was about this photo shoot and adjusted her schedule to fit me in. Given my circumstances, I had concerns that the session would be too emotional for me. Both Clare and Alexandra (the make up artist) were genuinely caring and compassionate and put me completely at ease. They were totally committed to making the photo shoot a memorable experience for me and I absolutely enjoyed every minute! The session was a beautiful celebration of me – all of me, not just my body – and gave me an indescribable boost going into a major life event. Now I can’t wait to schedule another boudoir session to capture the new beauty of my body and the new me!”
