Miss C: Hampton Roads Virginia Boudoir Photographer

The night before Miss C was scheduled to come in for her session, she wanted to cancel. She wanted to make up some excuse for why she couldn’t come in. She was feeling what so many women feel before her session: fear.

Fear of stripping down in front of a stranger, fear of letting me down, fear of not being able to let lose.

Having a boudoir session is not easy. It takes a lot of courage. The experience of being vulnerable and opening yourself up to a stranger is not something you just do every day.

I am SO glad that Miss C did not cancel.

This woman has lost 60 pounds and has been on a journey of self love and rediscovery. After her session we were talking about confidence. This is something we ALL struggle with. I don’t care what you look like. We all have something we are self conscious of.

To know that a woman who didn’t even want to leave her house a year ago came in and held her head high and posed with confidence filled me with so much joy.

Miss C, you are exactly why I do what I do. Because during your session I saw such an incredible transformation. I watched you relax, unwind, and show your strength and beauty in the most magical way. I saw that inner fire come out and I watched as you allowed yourself to be comfortable in your confidence and self love.

Here’s what Miss C had to say about her experience:

“Sooooo I’ve waited weeks to write my review hoping I’d come up with the perfect words for LeZandra and the experience that she gave me. To say the experience was life changing is an understatement. LeZandra and her amazing team made me feel like a long time friend from the moment I walked in the door. I was so skeptical of having anyone other than myself do my hair and makeup (because yes I have slight control issues) and I was completely blown away by her team. LeZandra made the session completely comfortable and I’m still not convinced that her and I were not best friends in another life lol. Her charm and creativity are unmatched in my opinion and after months of stalking her work on social media I am so glad I decided to finally go for it. The finished product is as amazing as the experience and I kind of want to leave my album on my coffee table so that EVERYONE can see them. The pictures are so tastefully done that I am not embarrassed to show them to anyone. Thank you LeZandra for a truly awakening experience. You da bomb ma ♥️♥️”

There’s this bizarre notion that I’ve seen fairly often among my clients and it’s this: “LeZandra takes great photos, but I don’t think it will work for ME.” Boudoir is for everyone. Every type, every body, every style, every personality. A huge part of what I do is getting to know YOU and creating your […]

When I say that almost every single client is worried that this process intimidates EVERY. SINGLE. CLIENT. I’m not kidding. The hardest part of being a boudoir photographer is seeing how prevalent low self-esteem is – regardless of size. The best part of being a boudoir photographer is being able to squash those insecurities and […]

Societal pressures to meet a certain “ideal” are bad enough, but when you add criticism from your partner? It takes on a whole other level of intensity. Miss M spent far too much time hearing she wasn’t good enough and finally made the decision to walk away. As a result of all that mental fuckery, […]
