What Our Clients Are Saying

So, yesterday I stepped WAY out of my comfort zone and did something I never thought I would do; a Boudoir Shoot with Anastasia Mac Photography. February is our 16th wedding anniversary and I thought it would be a fun gift for my husband.

Honestly I was nervous all week thinking about the shoot. Once I arrived Anastasia and Liz (Liz does your makeup and hair exactly how you like it) both made me feel comfortable and beautiful. Anastasia is amazing. She walks you through the entire process and thinks of every detail right down to your favorite music. All you have to do is look beautiful and feel like a Queen.

It was an empowering experience. I left her studio feeling completely different about myself. I felt Sassy!

If your have been thinking about Boudoir Photos you should do it and I highly recommend Anastasia Mac Photography.

“I worked with Anastasia for a pregnancy/boudoir shoot. It exceeded my expectations. I am not a photogenic person, but she somehow captured the natural beauty in me and it wasn’t contrived. We had a video created (another non-comfort zone for me) and everyone that I show it to winds up in tears! Anastasia puts her heart and sole into every moment during her work! Thanks again!” Jill

“My experience with Anastasia was AMAZING!  I put it off for so long as I wasn’t proud of my body. When I finally decided to do the shoot I was still nervous. From the beginning Anastasia helped me see the things I liked about myself again and help BOOST MY CONFIDENCE. During the shoot I felt relaxed and comfortable. She took the time to take BEAUTIFUL pictures and never made me feel uncomfortable because I’m a plus size figure. I had my doubts but I loved it and would do it again! Thank you so much!!!!” Vikki

Boudoir Client

“I had a FANTASTIC experience with Anastasia. It was so fun to be GLAMOROUS and have a day about just me. I felt PAMPERED the whole time and left the photo shoot walking on air. When it was time to review the photos I wanted them all! The end result is completely wonderful and great quality. I take a look whenever I am having a low confidence day to help BOOST me back up. I highly recommend”. Rachel

Finely I did glamour photo session with Anastasia which I was planning for couple years to do, but always was delaying in hope to loose weight or look younger or get better clothes for that. I asked Anastasia if we can additionally make pictures with my youngest daughter in the same photo session and Anastasia was so kind to agree. I wanted to bring my daughter to photo session for few reasons: I don’t have pictures with her together, it was appealing to me to have more childhood professional pictures of my daughter but the most hidden reason was next – my fear to look fat or ugly on pictures and for this case my plan would be still to have wonderful pictures of my daughter and refuse from pictures with me. But results were so astonishing that often I take these photos in my hands and looking and looking on them. But lets to start from beginning.

Anastasia started to work with me few days before photo session, she came to my house and helped to choose dresses, shoes, accessories, hair color and so on. After she sent me few variations of my look and photo poses for me to choose and she found the place to run photo session taking in consideration all these things as my personality, make up, time of year, dresses and other professional things like light, time of day and so on.
After followed “make up” session which made me so relaxed that I stopped to worry at all about how I look in spite of even my 8 old daughter said me that I look very weird and strange with make up, because she didn’t use to see me in such way (I had actually the same opinion) but I just decided completely rely on professionalism of make up specialist and she did such wonderful job for me. I am suggesting there a big difference to have make up to look nice alive or on photo. But I already was starting enjoying with whole process and stopped to worry about results. It was very pleasant to work with Anastasia during photo session, I just followed her commands, which were easy to follow. Next day she already invited us to see pictures!!! I couldn’t believe to my eyes. Anastasia captured with her camera such strong bond, so much love between me and my daughter, which is a true. It weren’t just photos, you can see behind story, life, relationship, love, trustfulness, sincerity. And of course we are both me and my daughter were so beautiful on these pictures. It was really amazing. Of course I posted few pictures on facebook and all who were professional photographers from other countries gave very high estimate to these pictures (I have many friends who are professionals in photography).

Other friends were also astonished with how Anastasia could capture and show in pictures mother&daughter love. So I got so many facebook “likes” as never before, almost woke up famous next morning after posting pictures. Also I became “expert” in photo viewing. Now when people show me their professionally made photos I see how often they have poor quality. Like family there but no bonds shown or family there and beautiful scenes of San Diego behind and looks like photoshop or just tourist photos from series ” we were there”. other pictures with ugly make up which makes beautiful girl look much older, or young woman in thirties look like forties or older. Now I want very much to make a nice collage to put on the wall and I just mentioned it to Anastasia how she in a minutes sent me example of our photos for collage. I warmly recommend Anastasia for having photo session with her, because it is such great experience which boost your self confidence and will teach you love and respect yourself and actually will change you how you look and feel yourself. And of course you will have photos which you will be proud to put on walls and show your husband, friends and relatives.

“I did a photo session with Anastasia Mac Boudoir Photography after giving birth, and Anastasia was great at making me feel comfortable not only in front of the camera, but comfortable in my own pre-baby skin! She has a real eye for capturing gorgeous images, and she helped coach me in how to move and showed me what poses and angles were the most flattering for me. In the end, I loved the original images, and then the final retouched images were of the same quality that you would see in a high-end glossy magazine. I was fortunate enough to be able to work with Anastasia a couple more times after that, and she was consistently wonderful, professional, and just plain fun to be around.” Nicole

Boudoir Client

“It helped me to both restore and maintain a positive self image and see myself as still being sexy even after child birth. Anastasia was great to work with and instilled tremendous CONFIDENCE in me & was a GREAT COACH, but I was blown away by just how BEAUTIFUL the images were! They looked like images you would see in a glossy, high-end magazine” Nicole

“What an AMAZING experience I had. This is nothing like getting your pictures done at the mall. I was honored to work with Anastasia, a one of a kind photographer”. Sandy

Glamour Client

“I was absolutely THRILLED with the pictures. I felt nervous at the start but soon warmed up and started to feel sexy even. I still cannot believe that they are of me. I look sexy and CONFIDENT and I loved it all. Keep up the great work as you gave me confidence to feel sexy” Desre

Boudoir Client

“I enjoyed everything. The photos blew me away. It was such a WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE. I would do it again in the heartbeat!” SC

Boudoir Client

“Being photographed by Anastasia was an experience I will never forget. She made it SPECIAL from start to finish. She created a Pinterest board just for me, so I could experiment with outfits and hairstyles prior to the session. And her hairstylist/makeup artist worked with me to produce just the right “look.” No detail was left to chance. She took the time to capture the TRUE ESSENCE OF MY BEAUTY. Of course the photographs are FANTASTIC but more important are the intangibles. I left Anastasia FEELING BEAUTIFUL, and with a RENEWED sense of SELF-CONFIDENCE and APPRECIATION OF MY WOMANHOOD. I recommend the Anastasia experience to any woman who wants to recapture her inner and outer beauty, BOOST her SELF-CONFIDENCE, or create a truly UNIQUE GIFT for her significant other”. Rebecca
