Mum-To-Be Boudoir

09th April 2017


Regular followers of my work and blog posts will recognise this young lady. Faith had a bridal boudoir session with me last year. Which in truth it was the first true Eterno Bridal Boudoir session as Faith chosen to wear some of her bridal lingerie complete with veil for the shoot. In case you missed it, you can read all about it in the post Beneath The Veil.
So after becoming happily married last year, Faith got back in touch with me before Christmas to organise another boudoir photo session, but this time another very special 'first'... a Maternity Boudoir shoot. How fantastic!



Why is Maternity Boudoir Special?
This is such a wonderful idea. Eterno Boudoir sessions are frequently booked to celebrate milestones in life....a significant birthday, engagement/wedding, weight loss, a new me, and even to celebrate a completed divorce! So to add this new one was just brilliant



Eterno Boudoir is all about capturing the lady in front of the camera, celebrating who they are, and their beauty. A Maternity Boudoir session is no different. I hear some women say that they don't feel particularly beautiful whilst they're pregnant, and although I understand why that might be, I don't agree. In the grand scheme of things, it's a body change for a short while, and one which should be celebrated, after all what this leads up to is life changing and rewarding event...the birth of a child.



What Faith had to say.....
As Faith is a very valued customer, having had two (very different) Boudoir Sessions within a year, so I asked her a few questions to see why she has been so happy to book initially and return again.

MP: Why did you use me to capture your Boudoir photos?

FM: "I was looking to have some Bridal Boudoir photos taken as a gift for my husband-to-be. After looking around at a few options, I chose to work with you to capture these for me. Initially I had seen some photos you had taken for a mutual friend, but I also looked through your Eterno Boudoir Facebook page and saw that that you were highly recommended by other ladies. It also helped that you were local, very flexible and more than happy to work with my requirements."

MP: "Did you have any hesitations?"

FM: "As it was a Boudoir shoot, I did have some hesitations about having it done. I'm quite shy and body conscious, and knew I would struggle with looking at the camera. I shouldn't have worried, the shoot was very relaxed and I didn't feel nervous like I thought I would. I liked having your guidance on how to pose and how to give myself the best posture in the photographs. You also had a way of getting me to look straight at the camera. I even ended up liking the photos of me!"

MP: "Would you recommend an Eterno Boudoir shoot to other ladies?"

FM: "I would certainly recommend an Eterno Boudoir to anyone! It really does boost your confidence and makes you feel good. It's also a really enjoyable experience and so exciting when you get to see your proofs. In fact, so much so, I had to book you again to take some Maternity Boudoir photos as a gift for my husband."

MP: "What would you say to people that are thinking about an Eterno Boudoir shoot?"

FM: "It really isn't a scary experience and is great fun and well worth doing! Relax and enjoy it!"



The final word….
FM: "Thank you for capturing so beautifully two of the most important times in my life so far! I am so pleased that I will always have the photos from just before my wedding and from my first pregnancy. My husband loves the photos and cherishes them too!"
