I was recently photographed by Mandy Boucek of Studio-B Photography as part of a boudior session for my husband. I heard about this unique gift opportunity through her website. I thought that it was an amazing gift idea at a reasonable price. I have to admit I was thrilled thinking of my husbands reaction to the pictures but terrified by the thought of having to take them! The day of the photo shoot I was visibly shaking when I entered the studio (which had all the windows blacked out for privacy). I showed Mandy my outfit choices and she chose backgrounds that would look the best with them. I then went into her private dressing room and changed. The first few shoots were nerve racking but by the fifth picture I felt totally comfortable. Mandy was so reassuring and professional I felt fully clothed. Mandy was very good at positioning me in a way most flattering to my body yet she also let me have as much input as I wanted. She took all of my ideas and hopes for the shoot and surpassed them! About two days later I was able to view and order my photos online. I went through my pictures and couldn't believe it was me! She did such and amazing job. The background fit my outfits perfectly. I am my biggest critic and some how she made me feel and look flawless! The look on my husbands face when he saw my gift was worth the few moments of shear terror I had felt. He told me that I looked like a model and was amazed by the level of sophistication in the pictures. I say to anyone on the fence about whether or not to do this shoot, to just go for it! My husband loved the pictures and I loved the confidence I gained from the experience! -Mrs. L.
I was inspired to take Boudoir photos from other military wives. This was completely out of my comfort zone and I was a little hesitant. Operation Valentine was an experience I won’t forget. Studio B really helped ease the situation. I felt comfortable and had a little more self esteem, not to mention the photos turned out fantastic!” Thanks Mandy and Studio B - Mrs. J
