That’s what She Said With Rachel

Welcome to That’s what She Said:

In the chaos of daily life, it’s all too easy to lose sight of ourselves. Many women feel drained by the demands of family, work, and daily challenges, causing their self-esteem to suffer. But even in the chaos, there’s a chance to find ourselves again—a chance to feel empowered and rediscover our inner beauty.

Imagine a woman who, like so many of us, was struggling to keep up with life’s demands. Juggling the responsibilities of raising three kids on her own, battling medication side effects, and feeling the crushing weight of it all, she started losing herself. Then came an opportunity too good to ignore—a boudoir photoshoot, a gift she gave herself to celebrate her journey and resilience.

In her own words, Rachel shares the honest truth of her experience—a journey from self-doubt to self-love, from feeling invisible to feeling empowered. Through the lens of Jarrett’s camera, she didn’t just see photos; she saw herself in a new light, rediscovering her beauty and strength.

Join us as we journey through the transformative moments of her boudoir experience.  Let her story inspire all the women out there struggling to find their place, reclaim their confidence, and embrace their inner beauty. This is a story of rediscovery, resilience, and, above all, self-love.

Q: What inspired you to book a boudoir session, and did the experience meet your expectations?

A: I was really lacking self-confidence. I raised 3 kids on my own. I gained a lot of weight, a combination of med side effects and laziness. 1.5 years prior to my shoot, I got a breast reduction and joined the gym. I was super proud of myself and wanted to do something cool to celebrate me so I entered to win a photo session with Nicole and Jarrett and I won!

Q: What was the most empowering moment you experienced during your boudoir session?

A: Walking out after changing into my lingerie. I was so nervous but both Nicole and Jarrett made me feel so at ease and I was immediately comfortable.

Q: What was the most unexpected aspect of your boudoir experience?

A: How comfortable I was in my own skin!

Q: How did your boudoir session make you feel about your body and self-image?

A: I saw myself as I had never before. I actually felt beautiful and sexy!

Q: Can you recall a specific memory or detail from your session that stands out to you?

A: The shower session was phenomenal and the pictures prove it!

Q: In what ways do you think your boudoir images capture your unique personality?

A: Different poses allows you to bring out your personality.

Q: How did you feel seeing the final images for the first time?

A: I cried during the slide show! I could not believe that gorgeous woman in the photos was actually me.

Q: How has your perception of yourself changed since your boudoir session?

A: Every time I look at my beautiful wall art hanging in my bedroom, I’m reminded that I’m beautiful, powerful and can do anything I set my mind to.

Q: What advice would you give to someone considering a boudoir session for the first time?

A: Do not hesitate! You may think you’ll feel intimidated or uncomfortable but it’s honestly so rewarding stepping out of your comfort zone.

Q: How did you feel seeing your product for the first time? What was your favourite item?

A: I was stunned. Speechless with tears rolling down my cheeks. We had a hard time choosing which photos to put in my album!! The wall art is my absolute favourite item.

Q: Anything else you would like to add about your boudoir experience with Nicole Ford Boudoir?

A: I just want to thank Nicole and Jarrett for being so amazing throughout this experience. They make you feel like you are the most beautiful woman on earth. And Jarrett’s guidance of poses is both helpful and hilarious. We spent a lot of time laughing!
