I still couldn't believe what we pulled off last night! I didn't realize I had it in me. Ang galing nyo mag motivate! :)
The Lord bless the works of your hand. May you continue to spread the message that we are fearfully and wonderfully made... (Psalm 139:14)

It was empowering.
Who led who? Who followed who?
It was a dance where the leader followed and where the follower led. An hour of self-expression that confirmed one’s inner feeling that she is beautiful. Made possible by another soul’s gentle but expert coaxing to hang loose, to have fun, to be comfortable in one’s own skin.
One wonders how she was captured in awesome ways. But is left to realize, later, that the beauty captured in the camera is a true reflection of what she is. Whether she knows for sure, had forgotten or just needed confirmation that she still is – beautiful.
All women. In Sync. In Harmony. All comfortable in their own skin.

Arlene, Danielle and Shayla were amazing! Everyone was great and made me so comfortable and at ease. I'm so happy I took the experience. It doesn't happen everyday. Doing the session really builds confidence. Plus, what's more fun than seeing yourself being transformed from the everyday woman into a bombshell! It was tough for me when you made me choose 10 pictures that I shall be sharing..because I just love all the photos!

The boudoir doll photographers worked in a magical way so you feel the emotions coming out so naturally. That's what they do best, they bring out the glow in you, capturing every moment that defines you, your stare, your smile, your laughter and your soul. They allowed me to have a sneak peek on the photos, I almost cried.
Posing with a lingerie is hard, you wouldn't know the outcome, if it would be a tacky one or not. But the Boudoir doll photographers (Arlene, Danielle and Shayla) are so much blessed with extreme talent! The photos were all sexy clean but still elegant to look at. I am not really good in posing, but when I saw it, I couldn't believe it was me. The entire experience was awesome! I wanted to do it over and over again. I am yet to give this to my fiance. I am pretty sure he'd love it as much as I loved it! I know it will be a perfect gift.

Everything started with a surprise, and ended with a surprise. I've never imagined that I will be able to face the lenses wearing only a little clothing. Even if I'm comfortable in my own skin it was not that easy to face this kind of shoot. This was my first time to have a photo-shoot and I didn't have enough knowledge on how to do this thing well. Thanks to the three dolls that captured these images and taught me everything that I needed to do and make me feel at ease. Now I can really show how comfortable I am in my own skin. Ms.Arlene, Ms. Shayla and of course Ms. Daniela (who also did my hair and make -up), gave me a wonderful experience on how to be a "The Boudoir Doll". I would never forget this experience – it was indeed sexy and classy.

It's not easy being a single mother, and I honestly think I'm too young to be one! So, ever since I gave birth, I really wanted to have a boudoir shoot, but I wanted it to be something that would make me appreciate and love my body, in spite of my imperfections and stretchmarks! I also wanted to include my son in the shoot, because of him, I wouldn't be who I am today. I really enjoyed the shoot and it really made me realize that even if I have stretchmarks and imperfections, that doesn't make me less of a person, or that I'm ugly. I have learned to embrace and love myself more, and I realize how wonderful it is to be created uniquely and wonderfully by the One who loves us most ♥
