Best Shoot Ever

“I could go on and on about why I decided to do a boudoir session, but I’ll try and keep it short and sweet. I was initially drawn to the experience because it sounded like a fun time- I mean, wearing lingerie and being dolled up just for myself, heck yeah! It also was a beautiful way to celebrate my body and myself, and a way to capture this moment of self love to cherish forever!  I was drawn to Gloss because of the community I saw on their Instagram; everyone was so supportive and their message of empowering women and making them feel confident and sexy really shined through. I was ridiculously excited before my shoot. I knew I was in good hands for my first boudoir session, and I knew it was going to be a lot of fun! I surprisingly also felt very emotional right before; I was sitting in the coffee shop across the street just thinking about how my high school self would not believe the confident woman I’ve become. The photoshoot felt like a milestone for me, and I was very proud of myself.”

“My favourite thing about the shoot is hard to pick, but I’d have to say just working with Marcee. She made the experience really special as she was so supportive and fun. Considering it’s only you and the photographer in the room, I think somebody who makes you feel comfortable plays a crucial role in the experience. One of my favourite memories is taking the photo of me lying down, arching my back on the floor. As my eyes were closed, I ran my hand down the side of my body releasing a big breathe. I can’t put my finger on it, but there was just something very serene about that moment and that exhale.”

“I would tell other women that are considering a shoot with Gloss just to do it!  A boudoir session is so much more than just getting sexy photos (even though who doesn’t want those?!) It’s an opportunity to have fun, feel beautiful, and celebrate yourself.  Thank you Gloss for an amazing experience, I’ll see you soon!”

Gloss Girl A came into our Vancouver Boudoir Studio for her very first boudoir session with us! We loved having her, have you booked a session yet? Our Summer schedule is filling up really fast, make sure to contact us to ensure you get a spot! Check out our available shoot dates here!

“I decided to do a boudoir shoot with Gloss Boudoir because their photos looked nice and elegant.  When I was researching, I saw that they have the best rating in Vancouver for their studio, and all of the reviews online were very positive! Before my shoot, I was super excited and couldn’t wait to get started. I was greeted at the door, and went straight into the studio. One of my favourite things about the shoot was going through all the different poses. I was given so much direction, I didn’t have to worry about a thing! The time really flew by, and I was really impressed with how much variety we were able to get in the time slot.”

“When I saw my photos for the first time, I loved every single one of them! I felt so beautiful, I think that might be my favourite memory from all of this. I would tell other women who are considering a shoot to definitely try it! “

Its really special to us when clients come in wanting to document a certain point in their life. We loved having Gloss Girl C in the studio, and can’t wait to see her when she comes back for her second shoot with us!

“I wasn’t really nervous for my photo shoot, more so excited than anything! Although I had never done anything like this, or even been in front of strangers in my lingerie before, when I got to the studio, Marcee made me feel so comfortable! I did this photo shoot because I was on a weight loss journey and I had lost 70lbs so far. I still have awhile to go before I reach my goal weight but I wanted to document where I was in my journey so I would always have beautiful photos of me to remind myself that at any weight, I am always beautiful! I’m so thankful I did this photo shoot with Gloss, and Marcee and I couldn’t be happier with the pictures and my experience. Once I reach my next goal I’ll be doing another one for sure! “

“Doing a boudoir session was something I always thought I would like to do – but one day – down the road, when I’m in better shape or whatever.. but when is that day really ? I was newly single and just about to have my 34th birthday and I thought – there is no better time than now ! This will be a birthday present to myself ! Exactly how I am, right now. After seeing a friend of mine’s photos from Gloss, which were absolutely stunning, I became an avid Gloss Instagram follower, all of the women were so inspiring ! I booked with Gloss and didn’t look into other options.”

“Before my shoot I was so excited! The whole process was so much fun, which began with the daunting process of: what am I going to wear ????? I had incredible help at La Senza Pacific Centre and found some pieces that I fell in love with. When it actually came to the day of, I really had no idea what to expect, it was 10 AM on a cold January Sunday morning and I buzzed up not sure what I was walking into !? I was greeted by Marcee and Tarah who were so welcoming and so excited for me that I instantly relaxed and basically felt like a superstar having Tarah work her magic and transform me into a super sexy vixen – complete with beautiful hair (I could never do this myself), lashes and makeup that suited my skin and eyes beautifully.”

“Working with Marcee was a blast. Not only is she super talented and knows which poses and lighting will look great, her excitement and passion for what she does so easily shines through, it is very inspiring. My favourite thing about the shoot was when Marcee would snap something she loved she would say so – this made me feel excited and confident that we ‘nailed’ a pose. I also loved Marcee’s direction, I was worried coming into the shoot that I didn’t know how to do all of these amazing poses that I saw on Instagram, but Marcee would just tell me, put your arms this way, eyes down, or now look at the camera etc.. it was all so easy, I was worried for nothing, she made me feel so at ease and this came through in the photos.”

“The best memory from the photo shoot day was how I felt during and after. During the shoot, I felt so beautiful and empowered, and afterwards, walking home I felt this air of confidence like there is nothing that I can’t do ! Maybe that is a bit dramatic, but I honestly felt on top of the world. I felt proud of myself, I stepped outside of my comfort zone, and the results are amazing. The whole day was something that I will remember forever.”

“I couldn’t wait to get the email that my pictures were ready for viewing. When I went through the library for the first time, I couldn’t believe that that was me in the photos. I was so proud of myself for doing this, and Marcee had captured me so beautifully, I was blown away. I had selected the Shimmer package where I could pick 10 photos out of my library. I started going through the photos and selecting favourites, and had over 50 photos as favourites ! I couldn’t seem to only pick 10. So as an extra birthday present to myself, I ordered all of the photos! Hands down this is something that every woman should do. Sometimes on a day to day basis it’s hard to feel beautiful and sexy, and this shoot is a lasting memory that we are and that we can be.”
