Man's Response To His Wife's Sexy Boudoir Photos Should Go Down In The History Books

"You made every one of her 'flaws' disappear."

When a woman in Texas set out to take boudoir photos as a gift to her husband, with all of her flaws Photoshopped, she probably thought he'd find the images sexy. Little did she know that after seeing them, his definition of beauty would change. 

Photographer Victoria Caroline had taken the images of the man's wife and on Oct. 12 shared their story in a Facebook post. She calls it the time she "messed up really badly."

"It was back when I first started boudoir, and I had a mid-forties lady book my services at a GORGEOUS hotel in downtown San Antonio. She was a curvy, beautiful size 18. I thought she looked like a goddess, but as most women do, she had a request....." she explained. 

That request was to Photoshop all of her flaws, her cellulite, her wrinkles, everything. 

"'I want to feel gorgeous just ONCE,' " Victoria recalls her saying. "I went home, made every last stretch mark disappear, smoothed out every dimple of cellulite, took away every wrinkle. I turned her into the epitome of what every woman dreams of being."

Three days after the woman gifted the images to her husband, Victoria received an email from him. He wasn't happy with the images, but not because his wife was in risqué poses or that the lightening was bad. 

He was sad they weren't her

"When I opened the album that she gave to me, my heart sank. These pictures...while they are beautiful and you are clearly a very talented photographer....they are not my wife," he wrote.

"You made every one of her 'flaws' disappear...and while I'm sure this is exactly what she asked you to do, it took away everything that makes up our life."

"When you took away her stretch marks, you took away the documentation of my children. When you took away her wrinkles, you took away over two decades of our laughter, and our worries. When you took away her cellulite, you took away her love of baking and all the goodies we have eaten over the years," he wrote. 

Then he thanked her. 

"Seeing these images made me realize that I honestly do not tell my wife enough how much I LOVE her and adore her just as she is. She hears it so seldom, that she actually thought these photoshopped images are what I wanted and needed her to look like," he wrote. "I have to do better, and for the rest of my days I am going to celebrate her in all her imperfectness. Thanks for the reminder."

The email in full:


"Hi Victoria, 

I am (blank)'s husband, ********. I am writing to you because I recently received an album containing images you took of my wife. I don't want you to think that I am in any way upset with you....but I have some food for thought that I would like to pass on to you. I have been with my wife since we were 18 years old, and we have two beautiful children together. We have had many ups and downs over the years, and I think...well, actually I KNOW that my wife did these pictures for me to "spice things up". She sometimes complains that I must not find her attractive, that she wouldn't blame me if I ever found someone younger. When I opened the album that she gave to me, my heart sank. These pictures...while they are beautiful and you are clearly a very talented photographer....they are not my wife. You made every one of her "flaws" disappear...and while I'm sure this is exactly what she asked you to do, it took away everything that makes up our life. When you took away her stretch marks, you took away the documentation of my children. When you took away her wrinkles, you took away over two decades of our laughter, and our worries. When you took away her cellulite, you took away her love of baking and all the goodies we have eaten over the years. I am not telling you all of this to make you feel horrible, you're just doing your job and I get that. I am actually writing you to thank you. Seeing these images made me realize that I honestly do not tell my wife enough how much I LOVE her and adore her just as she is. She hears it so seldom, that she actually thought these photoshopped images are what I wanted and needed her to look like. I have to do better, and for the rest of my days I am going to celebrate her in all her imperfectness. Thanks for the reminder.

Regards, ******** "
