I have always struggled with my weight. Always. I was never conﬁdent or felt beautiful. In recent years, I started working out, eating right and took control of my life…Laura Bainborough of Laura Joy Photography posted a boudoir special. As a celebration of myself and my hard work, I bit the bullet and booked a session. To say I was nervous was an understatement. I almost backed out (twice!) before my session but I am so glad I kept my date with Laura and went to my shoot. Laura instantly put me at ease with her laid back and professional nature… Laura’s extensive knowledge of light and posing lead to the most stunning images of myself I have ever seen. I honestly can not stop staring at them. Laura, I can’t thank you enough for the truly amazing images.

Laura is extremely talented and wonderful at boudoir photography. She’s so personable and easy to get along with. Within minutes she will have you comfortably smiling and laughing. I walked away from my session with Laura feeling empowered and beautiful. And when I saw the ﬁnished product I was completely blown away. I never knew I could love an image of myself so much. I originally did the photos as a gift for my partner but walked away from the session feeling as though I had actually given myself a gift too! I would recommend Laura to anyone!

I recently decided to have a boudoir session done with Laura, and couldn’t be happier that I did! I had two reasons for doing this – I wanted to give the photos to my boyfriend as a gift, but I also wanted to do it as a gift to myself for my own self esteem. As I think most women do, I struggle with my body image. Laura listened to what I wanted and focused on the areas that I wanted accentuated. She made the experience comfortable, fun, and liberating! When I saw the results, I was absolutely thrilled! She did such a great job of capturing what I was looking for and I was stunned with the quality of photograph, and the angles, lighting, and poses she chose. I truly am beautiful and she was able to prove that to me! Of course my boyfriend loved the results as well! I would highly recommend Laura, speciﬁcally her boudoir photo shoots, to any woman, of any age and body type – I promise you won’t be disappointed!

“As a 35 year old mother of two, the thought of anyone seeing me in a state of undress struck fear in the very heart of me! However, as a very happily married wife, it is so important to me to still be the playful and sexy woman my husband chose to marry and have a family with. I had always toyed with the idea of boudoir photos as a gift to myself and my husband- a permanent and beautiful memory of who I was at 35 that we could look back at with love and a laugh when we are very old, rocking on our veranda, but I had yet to ﬁnd a photographer that I trusted enough to share that very vulnerable side of me with. Then I found Laura, who came highly recommended by a trusted photographer friend. When I looked at her portfolio, I knew that I could trust her to take beautiful, tasteful, and artistic photos of me- and that is exactly what she did! Laura was extremely positive, sensitive, and professional from our ﬁrst phone call, during the entire shoot, through to the delivery of a keepsake book of photos at the end. Though my nerves threatened to get the better of me on numerous occasions, I showed up and stripped down…. and never felt more beautiful! I am so proud to have been brave enough to bare myself literally and ﬁguratively, and will cherish my beautiful photos forever.”

My boudoir shoot with Laura was incredible. I can’t express the anxiety and nerves rushing through me the moment I booked my shoot with her. I walked in with lack of conﬁdence, feeling the lack of beauty and zero experience with boudoir shoots. Thanks to Laura she immediately took all these feelings and washed them away. The entire two hours spent with her were fun, professional, creative and exciting. I felt beautiful, conﬁdent and sexy! Laura ensured at the beginning of my shoot that she would not ask me to do anything I was uncomfortable with. Working with Laura makes it impossible to even have a feeling of discomfort, but to build conﬁdence. My photographs came out beautifully and the experience was fantastic! I would recommend Laura to anyone and most certainly turn to her to capture any of my most precious moments in the future.
