I feel like there’s a common misconception that boudoir is all about treating someone else to some gorgeous photos of you – but honestly, there is nothing more powerful than celebrating your body on your own terms. Just because. Forget waiting for that promotion, anniversary, wedding, promotion, big birthday, or whatever else you’ve been using as a goal post, documenting your fabulous self in all your glory with a collection of timeless, beautiful photographs never needs justification – and that’s exactly what boudoir client LA Shygirl chose to do when she booked herself in for a self-esteem boosting virtual shoot after a break up.
LA Shygirl’s virtual boudoir shoot took place using an iPhone 12, which did an amazing job of picking up all the glorious contours of her gorgeous body! Want to know more about LA Shygirl and her remote photoshoot experience? Read on…
Occupation: I work in the film business
How would your best friend describe you? Determined, kind, and funny as hell!
Name three things that you always carry with you? Lip gloss, perfume, and a nail file
Do you remember how you originally found me? I originally found you on Instagram and instantly fell in love with your work- the lighting and the poses – embracing all shapes and sizes, and making everyone look gorgeous!
What inspired you to book a photoshoot? I was inspired to book with you when you were offering a Virtual Boudoir Shoot Valentine’s Day Special. I had dreamed of working with you when I first saw your photos on Instagram and even reached out to you once – stating that I’d love to work with you one day! I jumped at the chance to do this with you since I live across the pond and didn’t know when/or if I would ever make it out to see you in person. I was feeling especially down due to a recent break-up and thought it would do wonders for my self-esteem. Boy was I right! It was the perfect gift for myself!
Who would play LA Shygirl in a movie of your life? The younger me would be played by Selena Gomez. The older me would be played by Salma Hayek. A girl can dream!!!
Describe your virtual shoot experience? I didn’t know what to expect during the shoot experience. I was very nervous and anxious, but the minute I connected with you, it felt like I had known you for years! You had a way of drawing me in and making me feel comfortable. I didn’t feel silly or awkward at all. By the time the shoot ended, I felt like I had made a new friend.
What is your top body confidence tip? My body confidence tip would be to show your body some gratitude. I used to look in the mirror and criticize whichever body part I hated seeing that particular day. Now, I look in the mirror and am thankful for the arms I can hold my loved ones with or the legs that enable me to walk every day. This did not happen overnight. It took some practice being grateful for what I have.
What advice would you give to anyone thinking about booking a virtual boudoir shoot of their own? I highly recommend booking a shoot with Tigz. The results I got were beyond my wildest dreams. As I mentioned before, I no longer had a Valentine to give these photos to – these were a gift to myself – and they made me feel like a million bucks!
