Terre Haute, IN Boudoir Session // Kierra Josette Artistry, Inc.

“I've followed Kierra since the very beginning of her photography career. Since the very beginning of it all, I have LOVED her work in everything she's done. I even almost went to her for my senior pictures in high school! I've always wanted to have pictures taken by her because I knew that they would turn out beautifully. Once she started doing boudoir, I fell in love. I've always had pretty low self esteem, and I just always wanted to feel beautiful like in the pictures she took. I just never had the confidence in myself, to be willing to invest the money to have these pictures taken...until she offered the pay your age event. I couldn't pass up the opportunity then!

I felt so nervous! From the moment I booked the session, I thought to myself "wtf are you doing?!" The nerves subsided and turned to excitement, until the day of my outfit consultation where I had very mixed feelings. My stomach was in knots, but also full of butterflies! Once I met with her, all of my nerves had completely disappeared. She was so kind and welcoming the entire time. I felt the exact same way the day of my shoot, except about a million times more nervous. But once I got into the studio and started talking to her again, all those nerves melted away and it was like hanging out with a lifelong friend.

Once I got into the studio and started talking to her again, all those nerves melted away and it was like hanging out with a lifelong friend. I felt so comfortable and at home there with her...like I'd done it a million times before.

I honestly don't know if I could pick one favorite. If I had to though, I would have to say my favorite part was being in the studio and getting my pictures taken, and then seeing the sneak peeks throughout.

I will admit that I still struggle with my self confidence, but this helped me so much. When I have my bad days, I can just look at those pictures and think DAMN GIRL! It helps me to remember that I should love myself for who I am, and everyone else important to me will too.

I'm going to quote Nike here and say "Just DO It!" You will not regret a single thing about doing this, so just take that step and dive right into finding your own self love story”

Dark + Moody Boudoir Session // Terre Haute Indiana boudoir photographer // Kierra Josette Artistry, Inc.

A boudoir session can be very intimidating. Not only are you stripping down in front of a stranger, but you have to trust that they can represent YOU and not somebody else.

I pride myself in having a completely customizable studio. Not a fan of pink and sparkle? No problem. Want dark and sultry? I’ve got you.

I completely designed a custom set-up for this babe’s session.

Read what she has to say below:

” I did this session to learn self-acceptance.

I started off the process scared and doubtful. Throughout the session those feelings changed to total ease. Instantly I knew I made the right decision, especially since Kierra rearranged everything just for me. I was free to be myself and not judged.

My favorite part of the experience was the reveal. Kierra made me feel and look beautiful. I got to see the me everyone else sees in still frame, which was so helpful for my journey.

I know now that my clothing size does not define my beauty.

Here’s my advice to you: just go in for a free consultation!! If you’re scared, you won’t be anymore. I was naked within minutes of changing clothes and I never do that even with my closest friends or boyfriend…that’s how comfy I was. The session was a breeze and goes by so fast. Just do what she says, listen to the professional she will not steer you wrong!”

Watching a woman become confident and accept herself is always an amazing feeling. However, when she comes back with her husband for another session, that’s even more exciting! I love that she trusted me enough to share this experience with her partner. Read below what she gained from doing her boudoir session:

”I wanted to have a couples session to give my husband some time he didn't even realize he needed. Then I ended up also doing the waterfall mini for mainly me.

I'd just had my 3rd baby so i was still lacking a major confidence I'd always tried to carry. I also had issues still from having all my teeth pulled and going to dentures at such a young age. You don’t realize how hard that hits emotionally tell your looking in the mirror after its all done.

Doing the waterfall mini was a major stepping stone. It felt good to bring myself back into a sexy fiery light again. Then when the husband and me did our couples session just a few weeks after I was more on top of the word. He gave me thanks for showing him I still wanted him the way we did when we got together and it was something I know he now truly realized it was something we both really needed.

I'm raising 3 girls. This gave me back the confidence to stand bold again. To show them that no matter what life has thrown at me a women still should celebrate the body the was blessed to have and in this world we are raising the future in they needed to see that come from me again.”

When asked what advice she’d give to someone considering a session she said:

Do it! Quite saying when I loose weight, quite worrying about what others may think and quite making excuses to not love yourself fully.
