Zenfolio | Karla Mason Photography | Boudie Talk



"For me this experience was about loving myself again. Realizing that I’m not all of the images I had in my mind of myself. They were horrible. I realize that I am beautiful in my own skin. I see that in my husbands eyes now (though it’s always been there I just had a hard time believing it). This experience has been a transformation. Like I finally came out of my cocoon and now have my butterfly wings. I hope to pass on the love of self to my beautiful daughter. I hope she doesn’t loath herself the way I once did. I’m glad I did this." -Bobbie

"Thank you so much for a wonderful and fun day! I didn't know what to expect going into it. I am not one to be "sexy" or "flaunt" my stuff. Society these days has a stigma that plus-size woman are not sexy or can't be sexy with curves. I have often believed that have have lacked the confidence to be sexy. When I did the photo shoot you were very kind, relatable and saw me as a person and not just a plus-sized woman, which I admire about you and your work! I believe that it is important to treat someone as a person first and not just a label or judgment you see them as. Doing the photo shoot, you helped me find some confidence that I have lost along the way, so I thank you for that. It was amazing to see the transformation with my hair and makeup done. Seeing the sneak peek photos made me realize that I am beautiful, curves and all! Thank you for all your coaching, positivity, compliments and patience. This experience has been one to remember!" - Miss C

"So, for my 30th birthday, I treated myself to my very first boudoir photo shoot. It was such a wonderful experience that made me feel beautiful on the inside and out. Most of them I won't share because they are private but I just wanted to show one so you guys can see how amazing and confident one can be if you just take that leap!" - Nadine 

"I just viewed my photos and cried after seeing them, I have always been negative in how I look and I focus on my flaws on a daily basis. After seeing the photos I was in shock... I thought while driving to Karla's during my lunch break.... I already knew I wasnt going to like the photos and had no intentions to buy anything, but she played the slideshow, and then we starting picking out photos I liked, I was shocked and amazed!!! The best feeling in the world to see yourself through someone elses eyes and lens, the way she captured me was stunning!!! Best experience EVER....she made me feel comfortable and beautiful.... I was so depressed about myself I was looking into weightloss surgery because I hate the way I look.....after seeing these photos.... I feel and LOOK BEAUTIFUL and SEXY!! I ordered the 8x8 photo book, 3 metal wall arts that I plan to hang in our closet for ME, the slideshow and mobile app...THANK YOU KARLA for making me feel sexy and beautiful!!!! YOUR AMAZING!!!!" -Mandy


"I know nothing about makeup, fashion, I am super self conscious and like many of us suffer from low self-esteem. I was so nervous on the day of the photo shoot but Karla and Amanda put me at ease right away! Amanda does amazing hair and makeup and that alone made me feel like, okay, I think I can do this. Karla is awesome! She really makes you feel comfortable and she tells you exactly what to do, so you don't feel or look awkward. This was such an amazing experience and has boosted my self confidence. As women we are so hard on our selves, we think that if we don't have a model body / looks, that we can't do anything like this. Well you can!. I am 40 years old, I've had two kids, I have cellulite, my boobs droop, I have a tummy, I don't look like what I did 20 years ago. So if this is something you have been thinking about, DO IT! Thank you so much Karla Mason and Amanda for making me feel beautiful!" -Misty


"Karla Mason is AMAZING! Let me tell you! I am FAR from a model! I have never posed for anything like this before and I was so nervous about looking awkward too! But, Karla literally paused between each pose and perfected it/me then quickly snapped the photo! She deserves all of the credit! She would tell me to relax my hands, point my toes, move my hair, do this, do that...My photos would look nothing like they do if it weren't for Karla. Thank you, Karla!!" -Peyton


"I've never had an issue with confidence or self esteem. I know who I am as a woman and if someone doesn't like it that's their problem and not mine. BUT doing a session with Karla was one of the best things I could have done for me. They started out as a gift for my Husband but turned into being just as much a gift for me. Not only was it a fun day, who doesn't love having their hair and makeup done, but spending the day with Karla laughing and having a good time, was a much needed break from the hustle of being a wife, mother, and having a full time job. If you're on the fence about having a session done I strongly urge you to do it. And do it now. Don't wait till you grow your hair out, lose 10 lbs or whatever. Do it now. Because I assure you, the Man in your life you're doing it for loves you and wants you just the way you are! Thanks again Karla! - Cori


"Best Day ever! I LOVED everything about this shoot. The experience was AMAZE and I ADORE my little black book! So yes, be jealous, cause your missing out!!!" - Stephanie


"You can't imagine how much I've always wanted to do a boudoir shoot and how I've let my fears hold me back. After seeing so many of Karla's photos being posted on her site, I finally gave in. Amanda did a phenomenal job with my hair and makeup, something I don't treat myself to often as most days, my hair is up in a bun as are the requirements while in a Navy uniform. After hair and makeup, Karla had me start with a simple outfit and over the next couple hours, we worked our way through many of the outfits I brought (I love playing dress-up, so lingerie is a necessity in my closet). Throughout the entire session, she gave me such great compliments that not only helped me to relax for the photos, but made me feel beautiful and sexy, the way every woman should feel about themselves everyday. I had the experience of a lifetime and am ready to do it again, after all, I'm not getting any younger. Some of you are hesitant as I was and believe me when I say you'll never regret your experience. As a matter of fact, you'll love your photos so much, you'll want to show them off as I have finally done! Ladies, it's time to let go of your inhibitions, be brave, be sexy, be empowered! I can't thank you enough, Karla for such a wonderful feeling that I will surely enjoy for the rest of my life! You are a true artist!! "- Pinky
