"My boudoir session was the one of the best experiences I have ever had. Honestly whenever I look at the pictures which is super often I feel amazing and empowered! I wish I could display them but my husband is shy ." ~Rebekah
I can't believe those are pictures of me. You are so incredibly talented. I have to admit that the day of our session I felt really empowered and then for a few days after that, I kept looking at some of your other pictures of other women and feeling like I hadn't been confident enough or free enough during our session. I kept going over in my head how I could have been different and feeling like if I ever had the chance to do this again, I would be so much more sexy and at ease. I have to say that looking at the pictures tonight, I would not trade a single one. You brought out something in those pictures that I didn't even know I had in me. These are a gift to my husband, but so much more a gift to myself. I am beautiful. I am strong. I love myself. I love myself. I love myself. I think that is the thing I took from this: We, as women, need to give ourselves more self-love. We need to love who we are and love what we see. It is so hard sometimes to truly love ourselves (physically and mentally). We give so much of ourselves, our love and affection to hour husbands, kids, parents, friends, etc. etc. that we just don't have any time or room to love ourselves (or maybe we give all that love as a way to avoid loving ourselves) and so you photographing me was a way to almost force myself to show affection and love to my own mind and body. I truly love you for that and will be forever grateful." ~G
"It's been about 1.5 years since I did the boudoir session, and I think it was a huge turning point in my life. Looking at the photos every day while getting ready, I feel automatically beautiful - inside and out. Since then, I have lost almost 25 lbs and can't wait to continue my journey of a healthy living.
I thank Rebecca Sigala for stepping into my life at a perfect time and allowing me to have these photos. It reminds me that I can grow as a woman and contribute all my knowledge (both intellectually and emotionally) to those around me.
You have done way more than just provided me with gorgeous photos - you have reminded me of the strong woman I am." ~Alex
"I keep looking at my pictures. They are beautiful. Like real life, some angles show my gifts better than others, but every picture is beautiful. After experiencing Rebecca Sigala looking at me through her lens, surrounding me, prompting me, and SNAP. The look on her face with each capture, and then seeing the finished product... I am honored to have had the opportunity to be the subject and model for exquisite ART. Every photo is a work of ART that may relate something of the model, but it is Rebecca's art really. How can real art ever be less than perfectly beautiful? Being a part of this artistic expression opened my eyes to the artful beauty that is woman. That is me. My imperfections are irrelevant. they are part of the whole, and the whole is perfect. It's ART. It's beauty. It is god's gift to the world. I am god's gift to the world. I am ART. What a powerful experience. Rebecca Sigala, I hope you are recognized for your amazing gift. You are far more than a photographer. You are a profoundly gifted artist. I did not bargain for this when I decided to do this. But this is so much more than I expected. Thank you for the honor." ~B
"When I first looked at the pictures my first thought was, how much editing did Rebecca do? The images are just so beautiful and, dare I say - sexy, and I don't picture myself that way. When I look down at my own body all I see are belly wrinkles and butt flubber. But in your pictures there is so much more to take in. There's a really beautiful woman there who I couldn't stop staring at. So it took me a little while to even accept that it was really me. My husband was soooo sweet and encouraging. He was just like - I told you that you look awesome.
After looking at the pictures some more, and I guess having a few days to let the ideas float around in my head, I think I can say that I no longer question that you photo shopped anything serious out. I feel like I do have a great body and that I am capable of looking like the woman in the pictures, and that it really is me. The whole process was really fun and liberating, and I am so grateful that you were able to give me this opportunity. " ~M
"Rebecca and her lovely hair and make–up artist, Cassy, are a formidable team. They made me feel like a goddess. Rebecca had a way of making me feel safe and secure and so comfortable during the shoot as if my skin was my clothing. Everything became natural, playful and free.
Looking at the pictures now, I see that Rebecca has captured me in all my complexity, each photo reflecting a different part of me and brings my story to the fore.
I am so glad that I took this opportunity to embrace my body and myself." ~Natasha
"You should have seen my husband's face when he opened the album. He was shocked, but in a good way. He said the pictures are amazingly beautiful! He couldn't believe that I could surprise him like that after 15 years together." ~D
