Bobbi Jo’s recent solo boudoir experience has not only given her a new perspective on herself, but on her relationship as well.
“A few days after my session I found out my husband had utterly betrayed my trust. He’s had innumerable affairs over the years, but this time what he did was unforgivable,” Bobbi Jo shared with us.
“Before my session I would have accepted it, like I have for years. But no more. Seeing myself as a sexy, confident, STRONG woman awoke something in me. I’m worth so much more. I deserve so much more. I AM a strong and confident woman and it’s about time I acknowledge it!”
The mom of two beautiful boys admits life can get so busy, she can forget about herself sometimes. Not only is she a mother, she is also the owner/baker of Renegade Baking Company, as well as an elementary school administrator.
“I rediscovered a side of myself that I had almost forgotten. I’m strong, I’m confident, I’m sexy. I deserve the best in life and I’m not letting anything stand in my way,” she said.
Bobbi Jo is a repeat customer of Allebach Photography. Before her first session with us, she admitted she was scared.
“For my first shoot I was petrified! Body image is something I struggle with constantly,” she explained.
Having a session with us before this one, allowed her to feel completely at ease with the process, minus just a little voice nagging her in the back of her mind.
“There were some nerves. What if I’m off my game today? What if I end up hating the way I look? That sort of thing.”
She quickly put those thoughts aside though, as she reminded herself she felt complete trust in our abilities! “Allebach has THE BEST photos out there, hands down!”
Bobbi was surprised at how immediately comfortable she felt.
“I figured I’d take some time to get into things, but nope, instant comfort.”
She brought plenty for us to work with, a corset and jeans, a strappy black number, a burgundy bodysuit, a bra and thong, and of course her best outfit, just herself!
By the end she felt like a rockstar, an absolute goddess and a total badass!
“Mike and Erika are hands down the best at what they do. The images they create are top notch. You won’t get an experience like this anywhere else. I know there are boudoir photographers popping up everywhere, but there’s something to be said about experience and personality. They’re so easy going, so relatable, so encouraging, and it shows in the art they create,” Bobbi Jo says.
When she first saw her images, she cried.
“It’s so empowering to see yourself as others see you. We pick out our flaws so often, that we forget that we’re the only ones that really notice them,” she said.
Bobbi Jo opted for our portrait box. “I wanted to be able to frame some of these for my bedroom. I ended up purchasing more than intended because I just couldn’t decide on my favorites!”
When asked what her favorite part of the entire experience was, Bobbi Jo says the whole thing!
“If you’re going to make me choose, I’d say it was how much FUN it was. It’s an interesting experience to be mostly naked and be laughing, dancing, playing in curtains. It was a blast!”
