Denver Boudoir Photography
Taylor had been following me on Instagram for awhile when she decided she was ready for her own Denver Boudoir Photography experience. She is the sweetest girl that definitely has that spice. Don’t let her innocence fool you, she is a strong and very intelligent young lady who is growing into powerful young woman! Her images clearly reflect that!
Tell us a little about you girl!
My name is Taylor; I am a biomedical science major with a double minor at UCCS in Colorado Springs. I am 20 years old, box, and work as a leasing agent in an apartment complex.
Were you nervous about having a boudoir experience?
I was slightly nervous about my boudoir experience. I thought that it would be awkward being completely stripped in front of someone that I had never met before.
What made you decide to go ahead and take the plunge?
I decided to do this shoot because I finally had gotten to the point of being able to love myself. I was very abused for two and a half years in a toxic relationship. During this time, I didn’t have self-confidence; I didn’t recognize and appreciate the person that I was; I didn’t know how to love myself and struggled with feeling insignificant or like I was never going to be enough for him or anyone else. I ended up finding the courage to end a situation I thought I would never get out of and felt smaller and lower than before. However, feeling that awful was a wake up call for me. I spent a long time learning how to love myself, appreciate who I am, the wonderful things that I have to offer everyone in my life, gained self-esteem, self-confidence, and basically just had a crash course on learning how to love who I am, flaws and all. This shoot was a celebration of me learning how to be comfortable in my own skin and loving who I am as a whole person. I finally had learned to love myself after 19 years of not knowing how to be confident, and I wanted to celebrate what I felt was an accomplishment.
What was your biggest fear or challenge coming into your shoot?
The biggest challenge for me coming into this shoot was just being comfortable being naked or in lingerie haha. But I got over that really fast, so it wasn’t really a problem.
After your shoot- was it what you expected or different?
The shoot was everything I was expecting and more. Kenzie made it so easy to get in all the positions and guided me through everything. It was honestly such an exciting experience and I enjoyed it so much!
What was your favorite part of the whole experience?
My favorite part of the whole shoot was the reveal. Being able to see myself and how I look happy and confident in my pictures was so exciting. Kenzie has an incredible skill for capturing these shots, and I am so happy that I was able to share this experience with her!
How did seeing your images make you feel?
Seeing my images just solidified how happy I am with the transition from broken to whole and loving life.
Has this experience affected your day to day life? Do you see yourself differently?
In regards to my day to day life, I feel more comfortable with my sexuality. It’s exciting knowing that I have this very sensual side to me but that I can be sexy and confident at the same time. I always used to think I could have one or the other, but not both. I do see myself differently because I can visually see how confident I am in myself now compared to before. I used to be really good at putting on a happy face for people and when I used to have pictures taken of me. After this shoot I don’t have to fake it. I truthfully can see the confidence and happiness not only in the pictures from this shoot but in others as well!
What would you say to a woman who is on the fence about having their own experience?
I would tell someone who is on the fence that they won’t regret doing it. It’s such an empowering experience that I think everyone should be able to experience whether it be for themselves or a significant other. Any fear that someone may have is truthfully taken care of by Kenzie.
How was it working with me?
Working with you was incredible! It was so easy to get in any of the poses you had because you were so helpful with everything. Literally all I had to do was show up and you took care of everything! I had such an amazing time working with you.
Would you do it again?
I would absolutely do this again so please let me know if you just want someone to go shoot with!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR EVERYTHING!
