An inside look into our Admin lady’s alter ego
Mother, wife, daughter, sister, and colleague – we all wear a lot of hats during the week, and our admin lady Becky is certainly no different! An integral part of our team here at the studio, Becky is also a mum of two beautiful boys, Hux, aged 3, and Diezal, aged 6. She’s also a dedicated wife to outdoorsy Glen, who stole her heart in April 2008, and sealed the deal in Dec 2015.
But Becky has another hat that she wears, and it’s one, which we were privileged to capture for her – that of a total vixen! This is what she had to say about her experience:
Why did you want to commemorate this particular side of yourself?
“I needed to learn to love the skin I live in, simple as that”
Were you excited about the shoot or were there a few nerves?
“I was feeling a bit of both. Nervous because I’m a mum and also excited because it was something I’d never done before, and I’d seen what the other girls had gone through and how amazing their photos were so I was hoping it would build my confidence as well”
So, what were your expectations for the photo shoot?
“I had a good idea of how the sessions were run, and I knew that Alice would guide and pose me so I wouldn’t have to worry about that which was nice. That took the stress off a lot!”
And how did the experience measure up?
“The positions were uncomfortable, but not for long as Alice was very quick. I felt more relaxed than I thought I would –I was surprised actually at how relaxed I was. I could literally switch off which I can’t normally do as a mum”
How do you feel about your alter ego?
“She doesn’t get to come out often, so it was nice to commemorate just that part of myself. Many of the other hats we wear take priority in every day life, but the side of us that’s sexy and feminine is just as important and it was fun to let her dominate!”
Were there any particularly funny or memorable moments?
“I think the highlight of the shoot was probably when Alice sensed that I was a little tense in one of the poses, and she said something (I can’t say what), but it just made me laugh so hard that I totally relaxed. Alice has a somewhat unique sense of humour – but I think that’s how she gets the photos.”
How did you feel when you saw your photos for the first time, was it quite emotional?
“I think in a nutshell it was a combination of shock and awe. I guess I just really didn’t think they would come out that good. I actually have a few of my images up in my bedroom and when I look at them I still can’t believe it’s me! Alter Egos are funny that way, because they’re a small but very significant part of you.”
What message would you like to send to other women out there who are thinking about doing a boudoir shoot?
“We’re all pressured to maintain our figures and go to the gym and be the perfect mum; I think that a lot of women need to be reminded that actually, they’re perfect just the way that they are. My alter Ego isn’t really separate from who I am in everyday life, it’s just not as visible to the untrained eye”
"If you wait until you're ready you will be waiting for the rest of your life"
