Monica | Rockford, IL Boudoir Experience

I don’t know what I did to get so lucky to have such amazing clients, but Monica’s review brought tears in my eyes. I have a deep and firey passion for my clients, and for what I do, and to see that it comes through during their sessions makes my heart OH so happy! Take a look at her experience, in her own words. Oh, and some of her stunning images of course! Rockford, IL Boudoir Photographer

How did you hear about Leigh Photography? Facebook

What made you book your Boudoir Experience? I followed the page for a long time and was obsessed with the quality, beauty, and uniqueness of the photos shared. I love the way Alyssa made me feel confident in my own skin, even before the shoot, and all the positivity leading up to me booking. I, like most women, never felt ‘sexy’ enough to do something like this, and with the weekly reminders of body confidence, inside beauty, and seeing other women share their experiences in the private page I booked a spot during the 815 flash sale.

Was this for a significant other/yourself/both? BOTH~ I am recently married and did this as a late wedding gift. My husband was brought to tears and it was something we can cherish forever.

How would you rate your experience with your hair and make up? I love Shantel ! I was very familiar with her as she did my wedding trial and wedding make up. I was super excited to see that Alyssa partnered with her and Annetta as I admire and follow/support both of them already on social media. Experience was 10/10

How did you feel during the session? Admittedly, at first was super nervous at the beginning, but shockingly became super comfortable! Alyssa had me laughing, feeling sexy, confident, and empowered by the end. I love that she explained why we’d do things or how this angle would really make the picture amazing. I loved her past experience and trusted what she told me to do would make bomb pictures. By the end I felt like I was ready to book another session!

Were you happy with the outcome of your images and products? Obsessed, I couldn’t hardly narrow it down, I chose 10 over the standard limit 🙂 The detail shots take my breath away.

What are some words of advice that you’d give the next Boudoir babe that comes in? Girl, Just DO IT! I promise you won’t regret it! I have never felt so comfortable in my own skin doing something so sexy. I am seriously going to cherish my book forever, and so will my husband. I’ve encouraged all my girls to do the same, definitely Hollywood style photography that’s LOCAL, EASY TO BOOK, FAIR PRICED and FUN! Alyssa really makes you feel comfortable and that is why I booked her. I didn’t want to feel like I had to starve myself, spray tan, or get enhancements done to ‘look sexy’ she really has a genuine heart, words of encouragement and fierce love for photography and the babes she shoots.

If you could, write a quick recap/review of your experience, from start to finish . How you felt, what you liked, what you disliked, how this experience made you feel, what you walked away with, etc.
As you can tell in above comments, I really loved my experience. I love looking through my book and watching my husband enjoy this super unique gift. The experience had me feeling like a queen ! Hair, make up, a welcome sign with my name on it (such a fun touch), beautiful studio, and an amazing photographer. I feel more confident in my own skin since the shoot, and encourage others to book an experience like this. No real dislikes I felt the pricing, time from booking to shoot, arrival of my book and metal, and the beautifully wrapped book were all more than fair.

Kaari | Rockford, IL Boudoir Photographer

Leigh Photography
Rockford, IL Boudoir Photographer

Our babe of the day today is Kaari! Hear what she has to say on her Boudoir experience with Leigh Photography below!

How did you hear about Leigh Photography?
* I have been following Alyssa for years! And never had the finances or the confidence to go through with working with her. A friend of mine had mentioned her to me and she kept showing up on social media.

What made you book your Boudoir Experience?
* I did a Boudoir shoot shortly before booking and I just felt invincible and liberated and had a new found confidence if you will, so I wanted to do another one from someone I had been dying to work with for a long time. On top of that Alyssa’s work kept getting better and better and then she started making more events and every time we talked she just seemed like a blast so I made up my mind to do it, I set an alarm for 2 am on payday and did just that!!!

Was this for a significant other/yourself/both?
* It started off to be for someone but ultimately ended up being just for me.

How would you rate your experience with our glam squad (hair// Kristen Licari and MakeUp//Annetta Michelle MakeUp and Beauty)?
* HOLY HELL! So! Much! Fun!!! I met Alyssa at the door accidentally but it was like I knew all these women for years! It was relaxing and uplifting and I left with 4 new friends… great friends. You just feel like a million bucks. And it doesn’t just last for the shoot, I haven’t lost that feeling.

How did you feel during the session?
* The session was completely comfortable. I brought outfit options that the glam squad helped me pick, Alyssa is so much fun you forget you are standing half naked in front of her 😂 If you have posing troubles or trouble areas she helps you hide it, she is knowledgeable about what works with what, and she is positive but honest which I appreciate to make sure you are happy when you see the end result… ( and you will be… for sure!!!)

Were you happy with the outcome of your images?
* LET. ME. TELL. YOU!!! She this glam squad outdid themselves! I had to take a break from work because I couldn’t wait once they were ready, and then I had to take breathers FOR MYSELF 😂. I am so happy with what I got back but its more than just pictures, its confidence, its friendship, its an understanding and new appreciation for myself and my body, its owning myself and being proud of my flaws and that is an amazing gift.

What are some words of advice that you’d give the next Boudoir babe that comes in?
* Don’t over think it. You aren’t too fat, you aren’t too old, you aren’t too skinny, you don’t have to look like that girl…. that girl probably wants to look like some other girl anyways. There will never EVER be a time where you are completely perfect and ready, just go for it, you can do it and you will be so happy you did 💚

In Her Words:

* So walking in I was greeted by all of the glam team and I hadn’t met a single one before and they were all so amazing and so kind and you just feel right at home chilling with your girls, girl talk and it was great. Then they helped me pick an outfit… I got pampered. Alyssa spoke with me briefly about game plan and I changed… I have problem areas just like everyone so she helped me make sure I would be comfortable and happy once I saw the results and helped me conceal them but embrace them at the same time. After that, the turn around was fairly quick concerning she had…. 15+ people to go through. I loved EACH AND EVERY ONE OF MY PHOTOS…. and I couldn’t be happier and more grateful for this experience and everything I walked away with, new confidence, new friends, a new look, new perspective about myself…. It was awesome. Not to mention if you choose to have open photos like I did, you will be stopped and recognized as “THAT GIRL” (in a good way!) many places which was awesome! To hear you inspired someone to try something or even consider because they felt connected to you and inspired in some aspect is one of the coolest most heart warming feelings in the world. And thanks to Alyssa and the glam team… plus yourself… you have the ability to do that.

Kaari, thank you so much for these amazing words, and such awesome advice for the next babe. You’re one of the sweetest babes I’ve ever met, and I’m so glad this experience helped us cross paths and become wine-slushie friends! You’re gorgeous inside and out, and I’m so glad my glam squad and I could help you see yourself as we all see you!
