Hi, I'm tami

Below is a boudoir client interview with the beautiful Crystal.

I decided recently instead of me always telling you about my boudoir client sessions from my perspective, I wanted to share more sessions from the perspective of the beautiful woman I photograph. This way you can hear straight from the clients themselves what an amazing and empowering experience that these sessions can be. This session with Crystal was a long time coming and we finally were able to get it in when I visited Cleveland last fall. Read up below all about this wonderful session.

A Client Boudoir Session interview with Crystal by Tami Keehn.

Tell me about your journey to doing a boudoir session. (Ie, What were your reasons for doing one? Have you wanted to do a session for some time? Or was this decision impulsive?)

Ever since you did my daughters’ senior pictures, I wanted to have a boudoir session. I originally felt that I needed a muse/boyfriend/husband to share my photos with, but realized through your communications that it is more about self-love. When I worked really hard with my trainer, I was so proud of my body and was thinking, “I will probably never look this good this again” so I wanted to capture my success. It was a perfect storm: body, feeling good about me and had the money.

If you’d wanted to do a session in the past but didn’t, what was hindering you from taking the leap?

Money and body goals

What was the tipping point in you finally deciding to do a session?

Money and body goals achieved (lol)

Why did you choose me as your photographer for your boudoir session?

You know how to pose your clients as well as take great photos. You made my daughters look more amazing than they already do.

How would you describe the actual session experience? Did you have nerves? How did it feel to be in front of the camera?

It was really cool! I didn’t feel uncomfortable at all. It was so much fun and I turned the rest of the evening into a bae-cation.

How did you feel after the shoot? And then when you saw your photos for the first time?

I was anxious to see the photos. When I did, I couldn’t believe many of them were me. Especially the booty shot – if I didn’t know better, I would swear that was a body double.

Did your boudoir experience change the way you see yourself?

Yes. It allowed me to see what my guy sees.

What would you tell someone that was still on the fence about having a session done with me?

DO IT!!!! You will not regret it. And, get some large prints.
