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.April
“The experience and the final photos took my breath away and everybody’s who I showed them to!!! At 62 I am happy that I now have this on film to demark this period of my life”Joan Tryba
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.Guzal
