Client Stories and Photos

Hi, guys! I’m the David half of One Soul Boudoir. In addition to being a boudoir photographer, I’m also the author of the One Soul Boudoir client stories and photos pages. As a former journalist, I take care of content creation while Jill manages our One Soul Women Facebook group. I love sharing our clients’ fascinating stories, as well as their intoxicating photos.

After each client’s session, we her to reflect on her experience by way of a questionnaire that I then pull from to tell their story.

In our survey, we ask about everything from how they felt at the moment they committed to a session to the way they felt seeing their photos for the first time at their Reveal Party. It’s really comprehensive, and it lets our ladies verbalize their feelings in a way that helps me write a great blog post!

Finally, we close by asking them to reflect on how their boudoir experience has impacted them and what advice they have to other ladies who might be considering but wavering.

When we share client stories and photos

If you see a photo in a blog post, it’s with our client’s written approval.

One more thing: we stick to reality in what we write. While we aren’t practicing investigative reporting here, I do adhere to journalistic principles in my blog posts. For instance, if you see quotes around a sentence, that means the sentence is literally a statement from the client. No quotes? Then I’m either paraphrasing something the client said, or I’m furthering the narrative in my own words.

When the post is ready to publish, we give our featured client a chance to review and either approve or request changes.

So please enjoy our blog for its human stories, instructional insights, and tips on preparing for your own boudoir experience!

If so, you’re just a consultation way from your own exciting boudoir experience. Since you’re almost there, we’d love to hear from you. To get going, just contact us here.
