Miss H bares all about her CYS experience and we can’t get enough:
* How did you feel as you were preparing for the shoot?
A little nervous, but overall I was just excited! I had my best friend do my hair and makeup and she had a blast getting me all glammed up. I loved having an excuse to buy new lingerie and get pampered the week before my shoot.
* Any advice for ladies thinking about doing a boudoir shoot?
DO IT… and don’t over think it. There is some planning that needs to happen but treat it like a spa day and just relax as much possible. Trust the photographer to direct you and capture your beauty. Have fun… and bring hairspray!
* Your favorite moment of the whole experience?
How empowered I felt when I left the shoot. I remember walking out of the hotel feeling incredibly sexy and confident. I was beaming for days.
* Just for fun: Define what SEXINESS and BEAUTY means to you.
Sexiness and beauty is a woman comfortable in her skin. Nothing is sexier than confidence and a smile that lights up a room. When you love yourself, you shine from the inside out, and the whole world can see it.
* Did this experience change the way you see yourself, or the way you think of beauty?
This experience helped me see how beautiful my body is. We can spend our lives hating our bodies, or we can celebrate them. Society doesn’t get to decide if we’re beautiful or not. We do.
* Anything else you want to share about your experience?
I did these photos to celebrate a 100-pound weight loss and my 30th birthday. I want women to know that you can be beautiful, sexy, and confident at any size. People assume that if you are plus size, you should just cover up and not be seen. I want to be seen. I want people to know that bodies come in all shapes and sizes, and all of them are worthy of this experience. Every woman should do this, but I think this is particularly helpful for women struggling with body image. Loving yourself is the greatest revolution.
