Closer to fine

Another Chick Clique Beauty for you today with her personal share.  Here’s what she posted in my private Boudoir Group on Facebook (Join us!):

So I started writing what could have easily turned into a chapter book to post here when I had the photos taken, (legit like almost 2 months ago) then I saw them.

Those who know me, know I’m NOT a woman of few words. I’m a talker… today I sat speechless a number of times.

My Apple Watch notified me 3 times to breath!

This was my second session, I had a vision, Maura entertained me and gave me what I wanted and like a MILLION times more! What I wanted was clearly NOT enough and Maura pushed me, and THANK GOD!

These pictures show EXACTLY who I am. If you have a question about who your looking at after seeing these pictures you’re not “really” looking!

Because of what everything that day was and what everything today was, and really looking at how I’ve grown, Maura, you’ve helped me get, Closer to fine…

And here’s what she had to say about her session:

1) Why did you decide to invest in a boudoir photo shoot?  LOVED my 1st experience but got to know Maura on a more personal level and have a vision of what I was wanting for round two… a bit darker, moodier, and MAN O MAN.

2) How did you feel about yourself before your photo shoot?  OK. Not great, Not bad, OK. Covid has been pretty shitty to all of us and I fell victim to poor choices and lack of motivation. The shoot actually kick my ass into gear!

3) How did you feel about yourself after your photo shoot?  I felt amazing. I loved it, I was empowered and free!

4) Describe your session in 3 words?  Fierce, Bold, Sexy

5) What was your favorite part of the boudoir photo shoot?  The wings!!!!

6) What value do you think a boudoir session brings to your life and the community of women you support? It’s so hard for those that never experienced it to understand. Lots of folks (myself included) see the $ and cringe. I can tell you that the therapy it provides is unmatched. To see how awesome you really are, to see that IS YOU, to be pampered for 3-5 hours…it’s invaluable.

7) What would you say to other women who are considering a boudoir photo shoot?  Stop stalling, Stop finding reasons to wait, and just do it! Your soul will thank you.

The Refresh I needed

Another gorgeous client is here to share about her most recent session – her third with me!

Here’s what she posted in our private Boudoir Group on Facebook:

6 months ago I scheduled what would be my second session with Maura. I was ecstatic had confidence knowing what to expect and couldn’t wait. Fast forward to September i gained 30lbs was dealing with a daughter who has a severe mental health disorder, I was tired, I cried alot and I just didn’t want to do a session.. in fact I was making every excuse I could think of to not go to my session (my hair, my tan lines my weight).
*
Somehow Maura knows when your heart is sad. She senses it or something. She promised me the day would be magical and as usual it was.
*
I elected the partial outdoor session and Holy cow am I glad I did. It was probably the hottest day in September, I was sweaty, got slightly faint and had to take a time out, oh and let’s not even talk about the bugs… but every second was worth it. How Maura was able to capture my soft kind side and my hard badass side in one photo session is beyond me. I am still stunned.
*
As women we often forget to love ourselves, we often feel like we don’t deserve certain things in life, but truth is we do. And sometimes we just need a boost or a reminder. Thank you Maura for the refresh I needed!!

White Fantasy Wings

You see the black fantasy wings on the blog…now it’s time for the WHITE WINGS!

I started out etherial with the things, then I transitioned into something a bit harder.  I wanted to show the juxtaposition between white and black, so I loved the edgy look of styling with the white wings.

So many options here!

See Who You Are

My clients are remarkable women and I am so proud when they share about their experience.  This is from my client.

First, here’s what she posted in my self love facebook group:

“Ok. Real talk, ladies. What an experience. I have so many thoughts but here’s the prominent one:
I’m the Compliment Dismisser from a few weeks ago. Always. I’m a habitual eye roller and my go-to lines to my husband are “you’re supposed to say that” and “you’re delusional but I still love you”. Maura complimented me too but my arguments didn’t hold water with her. No eye roll goes unchallenged. She isn’t obligated to shower anyone with hoots and hollers and exclamations about one’s backside. And, while I make no claims about her state of mind, she has no reason than to see me any other way but reality. No distortion or delusion. This is a tough concept for me but, after seeing my photos this evening, I’m starting to see what Maura sees and, most importantly, what my husband sees every day and has tried to convince me of for years.

When Maura likes what she sees you’re gonna know it! And most importantly, you best believe it’s true!

tl;dr – I never doubted the photos would be amazing. What caught me by surprise was the beautiful woman staring back at me. Maura Magic is a thing but it’s not what you think. Maura Magic doesn’t CHANGE who you are. Maura Magic helps you SEE who you are. You. Are. Beautiful. Powerful. Special. And so much more!”

Here’s what she said about her session:

1) Why did you decide to invest in a boudoir photo shoot?  Each year my husband and I select a piece of art as anniversary gift to ourselves. We needed to do something special for our tenth anniversary so we decided to invest in a boudoir shoot. What’s more special than turning yourself into art!?

sexy photos during boudoir photo shoot in pittsburgh PA, beaver county PA boudoir photographer2) How did you feel about yourself before your photo shoot?  How did I feel about myself before the shoot? I’m a facts not a feelings person so I think I can summarize it best by, “meh…” I have an indifference towards myself. Like, there must be some ulterior motive to any compliments I receive because I’m not special, I’m just me.

3) How did you feel about yourself after your photo shoot?  After the shoot, I’m starting to see what my husband sees every day and has tried to convince me of for years. It’s sort of like a fog is lifting from a steamy bathroom mirror and I’m finally seeing myself for the first time. It’s so easy to maintain the walls of protection- if I don’t let the compliments in then it’s easy to deflect the negativity too… WRONG! I can graciously embrace the positive while still repelling the negative. I’m rambling… This shoot, these photos, are helping me understand that, not only am I intelligent and resourceful, I am damn sexy!

4) Describe your session in 3 words?  Powerful, Fun, Genuine

5) What was your favorite part of the boudoir photo shoot?  I really have to pick just one thing?! … From the unexpected exclamations about your butt or the curve of your hip to the warm smile and gleam in her eye when first she sees you in an outfit, Maura’s reactions are authentic. She loves what she does and she loves you.

6) What value do you think a boudoir session brings to your life and the community of women you support? I’ve never really struggled with a negative body image (and for that I am grateful). However, I acknowledge that I am not the normal. The value that a boudoir session brings to a woman is in the uncovering of a confidence you didn’t realize you could have about yourself. The strength that’s found in your eyes. The emotions invoked by your posture. Powerful.

7) What would you say to other women who are considering a boudoir photo shoot?  Maura Magic is a thing but it’s not what you think. Maura Magic doesn’t CHANGE who you are. Maura Magic helps you SEE who you are. You. Are. Beautiful. Powerful. Special. And so much more! Finally, if you are considering a boudoir photo shoot, what’s stopping you? Talk to me about it. Let me help you understand that’s it’s an amazing experience that you won’t regret and will never forget.
