Today we are celebrating Ms. D’s Body Love Experience in our Michigan Boudoir Studio. Body Love is for all women, regardless of shape, size, age and or any other limits are welcome and encouraged to love and celebrate their body. We feel that women do not get pampering so we create a whole experience and day around it!
Ms. D was looking for a confidence boost and to showcase what an amazing woman she is. Boudoir had been on her mind for a while and she decided to finally go for it! See what she had to say below.
What interests you in a boudoir session?
I’ve been intrigued by the boudoir session ever since I started seeing your posts. I have never done one before. A couple years ago, I lost a significant amount of weight and began feeling healthier and sexier than I had in years, maybe a couple decades. I have gained a little of it back along with continuing to age, and with those, lost a tiny bit of confidence. A boudoir session will be fun, make me feel good about myself, push me out of my comfort zone It’s the perfect time in my life to do this as I am turning 50 next summer, but still feel and (mostly) look younger than my age.
Tell us about yourself!
I am a little bit of a class clown, definitely an extrovert,and have seen these characteristics grow more prominent as I age. I am in administration doing grant writing, program development, project management, marketing and a wealth of other random and fun work. Love staying active and play ice hockey and soccer 4-5 nights per week. I also run a little and play some golf. I have been married for 21 years and have 2 children. We have a pet turkey, bearded dragon, and a little dog.
What is something that amazes you about your body or yourself?
Sometimes, I am amazed by my physical condition, being in shape, and ability to play the sports I play at my age. I have a hard time acknowledging that I am amazing but am proud of myself and my achievements in life.
What was the last thing you did that made you feel super confident or where you felt full of purpose?
I did a few television and radio interviews recently and felt good about how they went and great about the reason for them.

Use 3-5 words to describe your experience with Brea Oakes Photography
It was Relaxed, fun, positive
What was your favorite part of the session?
I loved it from beginning to end! Hair and makeup was indulgent. Brea’s help with wardrobe choices was super helpful. The direction and coaching was great!
Was your experience what you were expecting? If not, how was it different?
I felt more comfortable and relaxed than I had anticipated. The shoot itself was very fun! Loved going through the photos and it was hard to pare them down! After, I felt great, Confident, strong, sexy.
What did you think when you saw your images for the first time?
I thought that they were beautiful! I was worried that I wouldn’t like seeing myself in any of them, but Brea’s eye and artistic skill made it so that I loved so many of them!
Did you find my session preparation helpful? Anything that stuck out to you or helped you the most?
I enjoyed receiving the prep suggestions especially those that helped with prep for the shoot. I loved the wardrobe tips.
What does Body Love mean to you? Why did you decide to be a part of this experience?
It means loving and accepting yourself. I decided to do this because I feel better about myself now than I did when I was younger partially because I have lost weight and partly because my confidence and self acceptance has increased with age. It’s important to continuing to love yourself and appreciate that you are still sexy even as you age.
What would you say to other women who are hesitant to do a session like this? Do you have a message to share?
Do a session for yourself and not for anyone else. It gives you the opportunity to have fun, embrace your sensuality and sexiness and remind yourself that you are a strong, confident woman.
We are so grateful that Ms. D’s body love experience in our Michigan Boudoir Studio was celebrated and the experience was loved! The ability to step outside of your head and comfort zone, has an amazing return!
