Angel of the Week: Jessie

This week's angel of the week is Jessie Reed!  Jessie is a 32 year old Pharmacy Tech.  She's been married for 9 years and has 2 children, and 8 year old girl and a 5 year old boy.  She decided to have a session as a birthday gift for her husband and she got a lot more than that out of it!

Some of the hesitations Jesse brought in were her weight, stretch marks, and money.  Now she sees herself in a while new light! She utilized our in house financing program and got her collection paid off and delivered!

Here's what she has to say, "I look at myself in a whole new light, I no longer see the extra weight, I see beauty, a woman who never wants to see her daughter deal with the struggles of weight!"  And what she has to say to other women considering a session, "Don’t stress about loosing those last few lbs, weight changes consistently, but the way you feel in your own body should only feel great!"

Check out some of her favorite photos from her session!

Boudoir is not a Scary Experience / Boudoir Photography / Ashley Reida Photography

Boudoir is not Scary

I get it.

You're nervous.  You've never done anything like this before.  I've been there.  I've been in your shoes and I know what it's like to walk into a boudoir studio can completely unaware of what to expect.  You don't know this person.  You're about to really, really expose yourself.  Inside and outside.  You're about to strip down to your lingerie and maybe even be completely nude in front of a complete stranger.  I mean, what's not to be nervous about.  Unless you're already a completely confident and carefree women, you're bound to have the jitters about a boudoir experience...  but in reality, it is not a scary experience!

It's a fun, empowering experience that can change your life and boost your self confidence.

Once you get here we'll start chatting.  We will go through your wardrobe and talk about the items your brought.  I'll ask you questions and I'll get to know you.  My hair and makeup artist will start on your outer transformation and bring out all the beauty and we'l chat just like old girlfriends.  When we get started with the session, we'll usefully start with your least revealing outfit and I'll explain EVERYTHING to you.  You don't have to worry about facial expressions or posing....I will guide you through it all.  We'll only take off as much as you are comfortable with revealing.  You'll never be pressured into anything you're not comfortable with.  My mission is to ensure you have a great time and that you're result will be a more empowered version of yourself.  Some have even said their sessions were therapeutic!

Some things to remember...

1. My makeup artist and I are both regular, real women.  We understand every emotion you're going through.

2. We've had boudoir sessions taken too.

3. You'll never bare more than you're comfortable with.

4. Your images do not have to be shown to anyone or in any way.  I know you've seen work I've done, but all of those images have been given permission.  It's completely up to you.

5. We do everything we can to ensure that you have a great time.

6. We really have seen every body shape, type, size, and color.  Your body is unique to you but we've seen it all so you have absolutely nothing to be embarrassed about no matter what.

What my past clients have said.....

"I was very nervous because of my self image. Being told by too many people that I wasn't good enough to do the pictures, no one will want me because I'm not a 10. But from the moment I came out in my first outfit and saw your reactions, I immediately felt comfortable and had a blast. Everyone's negative comments went out the window and I felt amazing every minute." -Jordyn

" I was very nervous about exposing my body because it has many imperfections however not but 5 minutes into my session and you and jade both complemented my figure and I felt beautifully comfortable" - Lindsay

" I was nervous because I didn’t know what to expect since I’d never done something like this before. How was it going to be being naked in front of a photographer I didn’t know? How was my body going to look in the picture? What were people going to think when they found out I’d done a session? But when I got there, my nerves went away!! Ashley explained each pose and even showed me what to do. Both photographers were funny and down to earth, they played music and talked to me throughout the session! Ashley showed me only 1 picture on the back of her camera that day and I was blown away!! " -Heather

" I was so nervous but wanted to do it again. And once I got to your house, I felt comfortable and had so much fun." -Tiffany

Financing Your Boudoir Collection / Boudoir Photos / Ashley Reida Photography

Financing Your Collection

How to Finance Your Own Boudoir Experience with Ashley Reida Photography

Boudoir is a very powerful form of photography.  It has the ability to release your inhibitions.  It lets you rediscover who you are deep inside.  It helps you understand, love, and appreciate your body.  It's a luxury experience you'll never forget.  Something you'll look back on one day with your album in your lap and remember the day you stepped into your true self and let go of the distorted negative self image you had before.

You want this so badly but you understandably have a bit of sticker shock.  I completely get that.  Luckily, I do offer payment plans that will help as many women as possible be able to have this beautiful experience of self love, self appreciation, and self expression.

Ways to Finance

PayPal

PayPal is by far the easiest and most popular method of financing your boudoir collection.  You simply apply for a credit line with PayPal and you're usually approved within minutes.  You do have to have a PayPal account to apply so a great first step is to set up an account and get it linked to your bank account.  Once you're approved, PayPal will let you know how much you're approved for.  Simply use that to pay for the collection of your choice!

The benefits to PayPal financing are that you get your collection paid for up front which means your order can be placed right away and you can get your products back faster!

In-House Financing

In-house financing can be used in the event that you do not qualify for Paypal financing.  It is set up at your reveal appointment.  Once you choose your collection, you will need at least $250 to put down towards a collection.  The remainder will be set up on a monthly payment basis for up to 6 months (12 months for the Celestial Collection).   So you can get a collection for as little as $125 per month!  An active credit/debit card on file is required.

While this is a great option, you do not receive any product (digital or physical) until your collection is paid in full and there are consequences for late and missed payments.

Meet 35 year old CNA, Trista!  Shes mother to 5 kiddos and was in desperate need of a confidence boost.  This fun bubbly lady came into our studio last year and was willing to try some new things! We had a ton of fun with her!

She came in, busted out some new confidence, and now sees herself in a different light.  Finances were a bit of an issue for her but this experience is something she valued and felt that she needed for herself. She says to anyone having hesitations, "Just do it, you won't regret it"

Check out some of her photos below!
