Jennifer’s Testimonial

Jenn’s Testimonial

by Linda McCarthy

Meet Jenn who was one of my models who answered my White Sheet Model Boudoir call earlier this year. We initially met on Zoom for our consultation call and straight away I knew she was going to be amazing.

On the day of the session, she did not disappoint. She was like breath of fresh air!! Her energy, positive vibes were contagious and it wasn’t long before she rocked her session! 

To show you what I mean, check out her testimonial and some of the images below.

Being a curvy plus size woman does make it a bit harder to have confidence in yourself.  You’re constantly being fed that curvy girls aren’t pretty, that lingerie doesn’t look good on you or you need to change.

I saw Linda’s advertisement for Boudoir Photography and thought… why not? I’m so happy I did!!

I walked in and Linda was so welcoming! We had a few conversations through zoom chats, but it was nice to meet her and feel the positive energy she gave off. We got right into hair and make-up! Lilly does wonders! I wanted to have that 50’s pin-up girl style and Lilly did not disappoint. Getting into the photo shoot I was a bit nervous, but Linda was very supportive and encouraging!

After a few takes, I began to settle down and realized my own potential. It was such an uplifting experience. The session flew by so fast and it was so much fun! I got to see a preview of the pictures and I teared up. I never saw myself the way Linda was able to capture me on film. The pictures were beautiful! I looked beautiful, curves and all!

This was the most inspiring and empowering experiences I’ve had. I’m so glad to have met Linda and to do this photo shoot! I think every curvy girl should do a boudoir shoot with Linda. Trust me it will give you a new perspective of yourself. I can’t wait to schedule another shoot!”

Thank you so much for everything,

For most of us, we focus on our negative bits which stops us from seeing ourselves as others see us. As Jenn says in her testimonial, most women do not see themselves as being gorgeous, beautiful and awesome, curves and all.  By embarking on this journey of self-discovery, you will fall in love with yourself and you will greet the world with confidence, love and a renewed sense of energy.

How a Boudoir Session Can Heal You

How a Boudoir Session Can Heal You

And Make You Fall In Love With Yourself Again !

by Linda McCarthy

I think the biggest surprise from photographing boudoir sessions is how women start to heal and then fall in love with themselves all over again.  They start to believe that they are indeed amazing women, beautiful, breathtaking and thus start on a journey of self discovery that will forever change how they see themselves. Check out Sophia’s story here..

This is Sophia.  Read how a phone changed her life:

You may have been through a life-changing trauma or going through one right now and need to have validation. This session will definitely give  you the boost you need!! TRUST ME on this one!! 

You may not know it but with my guidance, posing and lighting skills, you will soon see (almost right away) that you are a BADASS!!! That first 10 minutes into the shoot will catapult you into a new realm of self confidence of loving yourself and feeling so freaking amazing you won’t believe it!!

Don’t believe me? Check out Kristin’s testimonial:

I think I’m still on Cloud 9 from my shoot!  What an amazing day!  I can’t thank you enough for all that you did for me. I don’t remember the last time I had that much fun, and I have never felt more empowered or beautiful. A switch flipped inside of me that day, and I know I will never allow anyone to make me feel less than ever again!  You have given me such an incredible gift!  I can’t wait to see all of the images. Thank you doesn’t seem like enough to say!  I will never, ever forget you or that day! ❤️

All you have to do is walk through that door and watch the magic happen !

How Revealing Will My Boudoir Session Be?

How Revealing Will My Boudoir Session Be?

by Linda McCarthy

So let’s talk about the question that is on your mind: how revealing will my boudoir session be?

My style of boudoir photography is classic black and white that accentuates the sensual side rather than the sexy side. I am not about objectifying the woman but more about capturing her soul and spirit and to show her how beautiful she is. What transpires is that she falls in love with herself and she greets the world with a renewed sense of spirit. I love details such as the nape of the neck, the collarbone, the curve of the waist, the shape of the back, the way she looks at the camera, the subtlety and the hint of….

More than anything, I love capturing the mystery of the woman in my portraits  — her sensuality is very subtle, yet it is there, like a present waiting to be opened up. 

You have the final say on what it is that you want to wear. In order for you to decide, our consultation digs deep into what makes you unique. Remember, we are all originals and my job is to find your original. Some of my clients love lacy boudoir type clothes, others get in touch with their cowgirl side and love wearing cowboy boots, cowboy hat, jacket and cut off jeans. Others love long, flowy sensual type clothing….it is whatever you want.  Some clients prefer art type photography showing more curves, lines, angles of the body and do not want to be restricted by clothing items. Again, it is all personal taste. 

I will guide you through the process and together we will come up with a vision board tailor made just for you. A good place to start thinking about what to wear is my blog on “Sexy Things You Have in Your Closet Right Now.” Remember…whatever makes you feel beautiful, sexy, sensual is what you want to consider when planning out your own boudoir session. I will be here to guide you every step of the way.
