Athletic Boudoir Session

Ms. P is a basketball coach and she had an amazing athletic boudoir session with me. I love how we were able to get her feeling all glammed up but still incorporate her basketball to keep her personality in the shoot.

I asked Ms. P a few questions about her experience and this is what she had to say:

  • Why did you want to do a photo shoot?

    As a gift for my husband and to help my self esteem

  • Why did you choose Photography by Rayleigh for your shoot?

    I liked her pictures and the reviews by other clients. I felt like she would be able to help me feel more at ease with the process and get good pictures as a result.

  • A little anxious as well as excited

  • What does “beauty” mean to you?
    Feeling good about your appearance

  • What does “sexy” mean to you?

    Confidence, appealing

  • What did you love about your shoot?

    How relaxed I felt (surprisingly), how well my hair and makeup where done. I will definitely come back for another shoot – maybe something other than boudoir as well.

  • How did you feel about being nearly naked in front of the camera?

    Shy, for the most part, although Rayleigh did a great job of making me feel as comfortable as possible

  • What was your favorite moment of the whole experience?

    My husband’s reaction when he saw the photos.

  • Great, beautiful.

  • I gave most of them to my husband who keeps them on his night stand. The “professional head shots” I am using for my business and coaching practice

  • Any advice for ladies thinking about doing a photo shoot?

    Do it! It was a lot of fun and makes you feel great. The pictures turn out gorgeous and it will make you feel good about yourself.

  • Rayleigh was amazing to work with. She was very professional and quick to respond to all questions and concerns I highly recommend her..

  • Designer jeans and sky high strappy heels (okay, that’s two but they go together!)

  • Think of yourself that way – it will reflect in how you carry yourself and in your smile
