Q: How did you first hear of Rachel Jasmine Studio and what made you want to book with us?
A: As a little girl, I was teased and called names with racial remarks which made me feel emotionally unstable and ugly. I spoke to my husband and told him that I would like to do a photo session in the future hoping to ease the emotional pain that stayed within me all these years in the back of my mind. Little did I know he looked for the best photographer in the area and came up with Rachel Jasmine Studio. I looked into RJS and said, “These are not the photos I was looking to do!” My husband said I should do it and that I would look “gorgeous”. So a month later I scheduled for my session unwillingly.
Q: What was your initial reason for booking?
A: I have never thought myself as pretty. I looked at other photos of women or women in the movies and always said I wish I was pretty like her. I thought myself as a plain “Jane”. I wish I was photogenic!!
Q: Did you have any expectations going into the shoot? What were they?
A: I sat in my parked car as instructed and waited for Stefanie to come and greet me. When I saw her, my butt and feet stayed planted in the car not willing to move; however, Stefanie’s smile relaxed the tension within my body and soul. What would the end result of this session be? I truly hoped that this was not a mistake.
Q: What was it like seeing your images for the first time?
A: OMG!! These photos are not me!! I am not pretty!! I am not beautiful!! I am GORGEOUS!! I have stared at these pictures over and over and not believing what I saw!! This was truly ME!!! I stare at each photo looking to see if I actually saw ME in them.
Q: Has anything changed for you since your boudoir experience and seeing your gallery? How has boudoir impacted your body image as a woman?
A: My gallery is stunning!! I have never felt sooo beautiful in my lifetime!! Although I do workout with my husband five days a week with weights, do my abs and play tennis, I never expected to see myself as stunning as the pictures depict me. I still look at each picture to be sure it was an image of myself.
Q: Would you recommend Rachel Jasmine Studio for the luxury boudoir experience to others?
A: I most certainly would recommend each lady to experience the luxury of a boudoir session. Please don’t hesitate to make that appointment. Making the appointment is the beginning of making yourself number one!!
Q: What advice would you give to another woman considering the boudoir experience with Rachel Jasmine Studio?
A: Please choose Rachel Jasmine Studio for your boudoir experience real soon. She and her crew will make you feel at ease and your end product will be amazing!! Do it today!!
Q: Is there anything else you’d like to add to your interview?
A: I’ll be back again some day!! I am 69 and the pictures make me look a lot younger than what I really am. I AM GORGEOUS!!!
