Since I cannot share most of my clients pictures publically I will be sharing an older shoot today. This has always been one of my favorites because Ms. C did this shoot for herself, not a man. Women often don’t realize how much a shoot like this will do for them. Here is what she had to say about her experience:
“I have known Dorothy since middle school and had always followed her work. I loved her innate attention to detail and her unique photography style. One day, a friend of mine told me that she planned on using Dorothy for a boudoir photo session to give to her husband before their upcoming wedding. When I saw the images of her shoot, I was so impressed by how tasteful the photos were and how well she captured the soon-to-be bride. They were stunning. Not too long after this, I experienced a failed relationship. As a single mother, I was feeling really bad about myself post breakup and I wanted to do something to get me out of my funk. I called on Dorothy for some help and she surpassed my expectations. I had envisioned getting a few pictures that would reinstate my confidence temporarily but what I got out of it was so much more.
I was nervous to contact Dorothy about my idea at first but when I finally did, she explained to me that a boudoir shoot is a perfect way to restore confidence and explained how passionate she was about being able to make me feel beautiful again. She worked closely with me from the beginning to find a style and location that was just right for me. She gave a list of hotels that could utilize the right resources. Dorothy even offered me outfit ideas for the shoot. After a couple calls, I settled on a window loft room at the NYLO hotel in Plano. I got a good deal on the room and it was gorgeous. Early that afternoon, I was able to check into the hotel room and I began getting ready. Dorothy showed up right on time and immediately, I relaxed. We looked around the room and brainstormed together. I showed her some photos that I had found and she worked them into the shoot. She had so many ideas herself. I was amazed by her focus while being so personable. At one point during the shoot, we had to move the entire bed in order to get the best shots. Yes, we arranged the whole entire room. As Dorothy and I moved a large bed to the other side of the room, I was wearing lingerie and heels. We were both laughing about it and it made for good material later when she needed me to relax a little. We were having so much fun that I barely realized how long we had been shooting for and how many photos she had taken. Toward the end of the shoot, we used the unique shower in the room to get some really cool shots. I hadn’t even seen the final photos but already I was feeling so powerful, sexy and confident. The whole experience made me feel so pretty and comfortable with my body. I will forever be grateful to Dorothy for that. A couple weeks later, I received the photos and I was blown away. She managed to captured so many stunning shots.
I am so happy that I took the time to do something for myself and it did wonders for self esteem in the process. To this day, when I look at the photos, I am not only impressed with Dorothy’s work but I also relive the memories of that day at NYLO. She made me feel so confident and we had a blast doing it. I would definitely call on Dorothy for any future photography needs I may have down the road. Her professionalism surpassed any expectation and it was worth every penny spent. Thank you so much Dorothy.”
