I am so freaking proud of this lady right here. Izzie booked her boudoir shoot as a way to celebrate her whopping 5st+ weight loss! She booked her space on Jan 9th 2018 for the boudoir day I was hosting in one of the gorgeous rooms at the Ham and Cheese pub in Scagglethorpe.
I'm going to hand over to Izzie now because only she can truly describe her experience!
A lot of you may already know that I had been following slimming world for a whole year and within that year I met my target after 10 months. Within those 10 months I lost 5 stone 9lbs and have my body back!! For 5 years I have been over weight and struggled with my weight and body confidence for a long time.
Along my journey I wanted to do something to congratulate myself on reaching my target but wasn’t sure what.
At first I wanted a tattoo saying ‘your body achieves what your mind believes’, I still do but haven’t got the guts to go through with it. So just before Christmas Nicole who I used to go to school with, owns her own photography company (she is flipping amazing) had started to photograph boudiour and it really took my eye! I saw photos of ladies who had the shoot and just thought wow, if they can do it so can I!
After speaking with Nicole she booked me in for January at the Ham and Cheese pub where she was doing a boudiour marathon. I was so nervous but so excited at the same time, posing in my underwear was the last thing I thought I could ever do.
Nicole came round for my consulation where she helped me pick hair, make up and poses which I wanted to do. Then it really sunk in what I had actually signed up for. I have always struggled with body confidence, with stretch marks on my hips at young age and always had chunky legs which I did not like at all. At the back of my mind I though I’m bloody 23 why should I be worrying about those things and the only thing to help me to get over it was to do an experience like this.
The day came, I was sat having my hair and make up done feeling like a princess and really all my fear and nerves went out the window because Nicole and all the ladies made me feel so comfortable. In a way I couldn’t wait to do the shoot and pose my butt off!!
I had 3 sets of underwear which I just adored which I think really helped, during the shoot Nicole showed me what poses to do and where to go. I mean girls if you haven’t pushed your bum out like no tomorrow then you will in a boudiour shoot but it makes it look good!!
Doing an experience like this really helps to boost an individuals body confidence and show our natural beauty. A lot of people associate boudiour with being constantly sexy or unrated images but that isn’t what it is. Boudiour recently has become very common which is just incredible. It’s amazing that women are finding
