I am not a model. I have never had my photograph featured in magazines or been professionally photographed outside of this experience and my wedding. I am a size 12 on a good day, size 14 most day, wine and food loving, sometimes active, sometimes not, 30 something year old with body issues. I have hips and curves. I am you.
I've had two boudoir shoots with Maura. My first one was as a wedding gift to my husband. I was super nervous and some of the people I told about the shoot were less than supportive, making me question the decision even more. Let me just tell you that every doubt I ever had was gone the second I met Maura. It was like being reunited with on old friend. She makes you super comfortable. My favorite thing about working with Maura is her enthusiasm. She gets super excited about the pictures she is taking and makes you feel as if you are the most beautiful person ever. The photos were beyond what I could have ever imagined. The whole experience was super empowering. I have never felt more beautiful, especially in such small amounts of clothes. Because of that, I hold my head higher now, am more proud of my body and all its flaws, and stopped focusing on all my imperfections. (And my husband loved the gift, if you were wondering.)
I would highly recommend boudoir photography to every woman. It is one of the best things I have ever done for myself. And trust me when I say, Maura is the person to shoot you. She is simply THE BEST Pittsburgh has. Her pictures are sexy, sultry, beautiful, glamorous, and just perfection. Her eye for detail is amazing and she will do anything for her clients. I can not sing her praise enough. I would recommend her a thousand times over.
