Larissa Kelley taps into her inner spooky goddess for this Halloween inspired boudoir
shoot at Historic Shady Lane with Callisto Boudoir photography. Keep reading
to learn a bit about Larissa and her boudoir experience in her own words .
Hey there! My name is Larissa and I currently reside in Lancaster, PA. I work in sales at a
local Boutique Hotel and I also bartend as a side hustle.
I’ve always struggled with self confidence and have dealt with very negative body image
issues ever since I was a kid, but have worked very hard to change my mindset about
these things. I considered doing a glammed up boudoir photo shoot for years but never
felt like it was the right time/my body was right for it/my nose was too big/ what if I
won’t photograph well etc etc...and then I saw the Ashley’s boudoir Facebook page and
Melody’s work in the photos and I immediately knew I had to just jump into it. So after a
small bit of though and a big glass of wine, I signed right up.
When I first met Melody at the venue, we had an instant connection and went right into conversation like we were long lost friends. She knew exactly what I was looking for
when I said I wanted dark and moody with a hint of spooky for the shoot we were doing.
She made me feel so gorgeous, and her energy is so incredible it was impossible to feel
negative or nervous about the experience. When I looked in the mirror before the shoot
started I felt beautiful, sexy, and so ready to work it.
During the shoot I realized I didn’t need to keep worrying if my body “wasn’t ready” for a
boudoir session or if I wasn’t going to photograph well because I felt so empowered in
that moment. After our time was up, I couldn’t wait to see how the photos turned out
and I was so excited to go home and tell my partner everything about my experience
and share how beautiful I felt with him. I highly encourage anyone just thinking about
doing a shoot like this to just take a leap and go for it! You’re beautiful right here, right
now, and I know I can’t wait to do it again. XO- Lar
