For various reasons I have felt shame for my body, my sensuality, and in essence my entire self for a very long time. I buried myself in extra large clothes to hide myself from the scrutinizing eyes and judgement. Two years ago, I embarked on a mission of self love, learning about myself and what it truly meant to love me. As part of a workshop, we were asked to make a vow to ourselves. I wrote; “I vow to be ferociously feminine, to do so boldly and quietly, with strength and tenderness, wisdom and whimsy, fact and faith. To be true to myself, to be true to others and to be true to love.”
When I discovered Decoro, I was excited and terrified, and with anxiety turning my stomach I booked my appointment. Then came the BIG DAY! Leah and Kevan have such an amazing energy, I felt free to be my fabulous and flawed self. They truly celebrate beauty in all forms.
As I made my way out the door that day, I realized, Leah and Kevan helped me fulfill my vow.
Whatever stage you are at in your journey, this is a MUST DO!
Where to even start? Decoro and I go way back. Having said that, every time I’m in front of Kevan’s camera the experience is unique. There are new poses, different angles and more stretching! I’m always a tad nervous going into a shoot, but I always feel like a rock star when I’m done. The experience is always positive, and I leave with a renewed sense of body awareness and confidence. No two shoots have ever been alike, and the pictures are always breathtaking. Kevan and Leah go out of their way to make sure you are encouraged and supported every step of the way. That’s not to say the shoot is a lovely, relaxing cake walk. You are going to have to work for it. But trust Kevan when he’s posing you, and the results will be totally worth it! They’ve managed to make this girl feel beautiful in the midst of two pregnancies, and that is a pretty major feat. I will always be grateful for my experiences with Decoro, and I will always recommend them to anyone who wants to be able to own the beauty we all have.
Not only are Leah and Kevan professionals at what they do but they are so very kind and make you feel welcome, accepted and most of all so very much beautiful. They bring you through the process of picking the perfect outfits, to hair & makeup, shooting different set ups and helping you pick the perfect photos to remember. This was my second shoot and it was as memorable as the first. Their talent is remarkable! Thank you again Leah & Kevan for the most beautiful day and letting me flow back into that feminine energy and reminding me of my beauty.
I had such a great time getting to meet you and Kevan! You guys made this such a fun and comfortable experience for me! Getting to go outside really made this great for me because it allowed my vision to really come to life! The mosquitos and cold water were so worth it in the end! I love all my photos and had a more amazing experience than I could’ve imagined! Thanks so much Kevan and Leah!
I couldn’t praise the experience in working with Kevan and Leah enough.
I was anxious and nervous about it all, and they went above and beyond in making the experience personal, intimate and best of all, fun.
It was a very empowering and rewarding experience that I’d hope for everyone and anyone, to take the chance and be revered.
Thank you so much for the opportunity and can’t speak highly enough for the positivity you both radiate and bring out of ourselves.
I stepped out of my shell at the beginning of this month and did something I never thought I would ever do. This shoot reminded me that although I’m married with three busy children and a full time job, I’m still human. I actually took time for myself and indulged in something that is SO out of my comfort zone and honestly loved every minute of the process and the results. I feel beautiful and empowered…I think I’m gonna go back and do it again in 5 years just cuz 🙂. To all my lady friends out there…this is such an experience…just do it!
P.S. I purchased this sitting at the end of November, almost rescheduled my appointment once AND almost turned around while I was driving there for this shoot…not nervous at all 😂
Working with Leah and Kevan was SUCH an incredible experience! From the moment I walked in, they were both warm and welcoming, and immediately began to make me feel comfortable. When doing my hair and makeup, Leah was so calming, easy to talk to, and truly light and loving in her approach to helping me to feel beautiful.
When it came time to begin shooting, they were both incredibly professional, kind, and helpful with making me feel comfortable and at ease with the poses. They were also super funny, which made it hard to have a serious face, but helped me feel at home and got my guard down!
They have such a strong respect and admiration for one another, that you can feel through the way they work. Whether it’s asking the other for input, or looking at an angle together, you can truly feel the love they share, and the strength they have as a team – and that made me feel truly confident that they were accomplishing some beautiful work.
Having their guidance on poses (or bossiness as Kevan kept saying) was truly appreciated, and made someone of no experience like me, feel confident and powerful in my own skin. Through their suggestions, I was able to feel comfortable, strong, and empowered with my body – and helped to remind me that I was there for that reason alone. I reached out to working with them because I wanted to celebrate myself, and my new-found self-confidence and self-love.
From the comforting guidance of their home, to trekking through the icy cold waters to find the beauty in nature – I was able to feel confident, strong and beautiful with everything that unfolded.
I am whole-heartedly grateful to Leah and Kevan for this adventure, and for taking the time to work with me, and gift me with such a beautiful experience. It’s one that I’ll hold near and dear to my heart, because it was a day of celebrating myself.
For how far I’ve come, and how far I have to go. Thank you!!!
A Decoro boudoir shoot is a truly memorable experience! Leah and Kevan have an incredible ability to make a situation that I thought would be a bit uncomfortable (walking around in somebody else’s house/home studio in your lingerie) feel like a completely natural thing, and they actually encourage you to 😁 The photo reveal was the icing on the cake. I was definitely excited to see the end result of all the booty popping and Kevan’s creativity. What I was not expecting to be revealed was somebody that I thought was lost, somebody who I had never seen, and somebody that I wanted to be…but turns out that somebody was actually me ☺️❤️ You may think that you are doing a boudoir shoot for somebody else, but really, it’s for you. You may not think that you need to see yourself in those poses from those angles, but really, you do.
