Deanett was a lot of fun! A former veteran herself, we clicked immediately! I always like to ask my clients the “why” behind the session, and she made it very clear she was doing a boudoir session for herself. Why? Why not?!
Below you’ll find her client interview—take a moment to read over her responses, as you may find you can relate!
How long have you been wanting to do a boudoir session and what made you decide now was the time to do one?
A boudoir session isn’t something I had been wanting to do, it wasn’t even something I ever imagined I would do. The boudoir session happened in part for the same reasons: while shopping at [local lingerie boutique] Underneath It All for items needed for a Halloween costume I saw a magazine for Shannon Hemauer Photography. I quickly flipped though it then captured a picture of the cover and said to myself, “I’m going to do this.”
What made you decide Shannon Hemauer was the photographer to work with to do your boudoir session?
I was very impressed with Shannon’s work displayed on the website and posted on social media. She was extremely accommodating when scheduling my consultation. Shannon was very thorough during the consultation. As a veteran, I wanted to support a veteran-owned business.
What was your favorite part out of the entire experience? The planning, the session, the reveal?
There wasn’t just one favorite part. During the planning session, the Personal Shopping Experience was amazing. Prior to planning for this session I hadn’t shopped for this type of lingerie before so having Shannon help me pick out the right items made this pretty easy. I was open to trying on anything and going with whatever looked the best. The Session, after Nath did my hair/makeup and I put on the dress and shoes then looked in the mirror for the first time. I’ll never forgot that feeling. I remember saying “Whoa, is that me?” I knew it was me but couldn’t believe it.
What did you think when you saw that first image of yourself?
“Wow, I look amazing!!!”
How did shooting this session with Shannon Hemauer change your outlook on yourself? Are you more confident?
It afforded the opportunity for me to become more comfortable with my body. I thought I was confident before the session; however, the session increased my level of confidence.
Before this experience, did you feel you were photogenic? If no, do you feel you are photogenic now?
Yes, I was photogenic before the session. Shannon provided great tips prior to and during the session that I can use for future photos.
Before this experience, what concerns did you have in regards to hiring a photographer?
Level of professionalism and tastefulness of photos.
Were you surprised at how much fun you had planning your session, shooting your session, and seeing your images?
Yes, I had a blast. I had no idea it would be so much fun!
Why should other women do a boudoir/contemporary glamour session with Shannon Hemauer Photography?
From planning to reveal Shannon, Nath, and Dianna make it fun and as stress-free as possible. It’s such an empowering experience and you look beautiful. Take time and invest in you.
