How a boudoir session can make you heal and fall in love with yourself

How a boudoir session can make you heal and fall in love with yourself

36

To the average eye looking at boudoir photographs, some think many things like

She is beautiful.

There is no way I could ever do that.

That is out of my comfort zone.

I want to do a session!

I want to do a session, but I would never look like that

I wish I were that confident.

But I must be honest. Never once has anyone ever walked in front of my camera loving every inch of themselves. Never once in 20 years has anyone ever said, “I love everything about myself”.  Not every client is confident, not every client loves themselves. Not every client ever thought she could get in front of my camera.

I have been doing this for so long I forget what its like on the other side looking in. You do not get to hear the stories the clients share. The tears they hold back as they tell me how they forgot what it felt like to feel beautiful. You do not see them squeal when they see the images after their session!

Because Big Tech has been censoring me for years, I do not get to share as many images as I would like to on social media or even on google. The raw emotion of women, loving themselves. Scars and all.

Yes, we do sessions for wedding gifts for your significant other on your wedding day. Anniversary gifts, birthday gifts.  Birthday milestone celebrations. But we also do them for divorces, or eating disorders, for domestic violence, and rape.

At the end of the day, you see a stunning photo of a woman, I see a beautiful badass.

At our studio, we want to photograph you. We do not put a big focus on outfits, because it is not about that. Even just a sheet will do. It is about being comfortable at the level you want to be. To feel beautiful and fall in love with yourself again, or even more.

To do something for yourself, or for someone you love, even if that is yourself.

SHOULD I LOSE WEIGHT PRIOR TO MY BOUDOIR SHOOT?

SHOULD I LOSE WEIGHT PRIOR TO MY BOUDOIR SHOOT?

Boudoir Photographer Near Me

The short answer? No. No, you don’t need to lose weight for your session. 

Our lives are ever-changing, we gain weight, we lose weight, we age, we get 1 life and 1 body, and its always changing.

Do a shoot now and if you do lose weight, do another shoot. You don’t have to have 1 shoot and never do one again, in fact, a lot of our clients get hooked and do one every year or every other year.   

They plan for it, budget for it, pay us as they go, do it with a tax return, book our limited edition specials we do sometimes. Whatever the case may be, its important that we take time and do something for ourselves, in the now. 

A client of mine a few years ago did a session on her birthday, a few months later was diagnosed with brain cancer. Her body changed and her life changed. 

Clients get pregnant and their body changes, health issues, accidents, life in general. So many reasons can change us by day and its important to do a shoot in the now. 

You can do a shoot again, just don’t wait to do a shoot just to lose weight, or you may wait forever. 

Whether you are a size 0 or a size 24 we are confident that we can give you the best photograph you have ever seen of yourself!

You’re worth it

You’re worth it

I was listening to a book on tape the other day while running. I stopped in my tracks and listened to this author’s words. While he was talking about it in a financial aspect in my head I flipped it. 

“If every time you ate at a restaurant you got food poisoning you wouldn’t go back, because it makes you feel sick and miserable.” 

So many of my inquires and clients have said to me and said …

“I don’t like my feet because my friend in 7th grade made fun of them.” “I don’t like my butt because my ex-husband uses to say it was flat.” “I don’t like teeth because someone called me a name one time…” “I don’t like my nose because so-and-so made fun of it..”  etc….

I can keep going with the years of self hate my clients have told me about themselves. I know you are thinking right now what people have said to you– you drank it down…

But what I realized that day running is every single one of us has eaten at a restaurant that gave us food poisoning- in our minds.

These people are not our friends, they are not our family they are not people we need in our lives. If they don’t bring you up and cheering for you they are poisoning you. Go to a different restaurant where the compliments run thick, the cheer squad is ready and willing to pump you up! 

I was asked the other day why I am different from all the other photographers? Because I spent too many years eating at the wrong restaurants and when I finally realized I was a 5-star restaurant I wanted everyone to come to eat with me too. 

Bullied, belittled, abused, the chronic illness I have lived it all and survived, and as hard as it is at times, I’ve had to love myself again, over and over again. Photographs are a way to mark the journey, to stand up and say I am worth it. I am worthy of the love I so freely give to everyone else, for myself. 

A boudoir session is sexy photos. But the steps to them, and after is so much more, it’s a big healthy meal of the right things to do and say to yourself. Take back your power, you’re worth it.

I started photography over 20 years ago. I started a business 12 years ago out of all the things I photograph the most rewarding is photography women.

I have done every genre of photography except posed newborn and switched to boudoir several years ago, and boudoir is full of challenges! Women are SO hard on themselves but when there face lights up at how beautiful they see themselves-when tears roll down there checks because they know they look just as beautiful as any other woman on the front of a magazine, or tv show or whoever.

They forget the name calling there ex us to say to them. The shitty things their mother said to them as they grew up. The mean names the kids said to them in school. The “whatever” that took that self-love away from them, just disappears.

They see themselves as they SHOULD see themselves. Beautiful human creatures, learning to love themselves in a world that is hard to do. They see themselves and the battles they have won, they see themselves how the people in their life that love them see them.

Can they do this with clothes on too? Sure we can do that, but something so simple and pure and feeling sexy and unstoppable takes the cake.

Today my little group here on Facebook hit over 2k members. Inspire, cheer each other on, getting to known each other, funny memes, questions you name it its not just about photography here, its about beautiful badass women coming together to lift each other up.

Ladies, I invite you to join, if you don’t like it then leave but we would love for you to come on in and have a seat and stay awhile.
