Everyone has a Facebook profile these days, right? I have a love/hate relationship with Facebook, but nonetheless I am on it every day! One thing I love about Facebook is my Facebook group, Boudoir by Tracy Lynn- The Private Group.
If you’ve followed my blog for long at all, you know I think boudoir sessions can change your life and outlook on yourself and your body. The Facebook group has been discussing this topic all month and I love the responses!
Boudoir and Confidence Issues
One of the group members was discussing how she doesn’t feel beautiful and couldn’t see herself doing a session.
Before I go further, I want to mention I don’t check social media super often. Occasionally, I will go a few days without checking the posts in the group, but everyone is so great about chiming in when needed.
Back to this post I was talking about. A few of my previous clients took the time to comment about how their session changed their lives. Not only did they have beautiful photos, but they were able to see themselves completely differently than they did before.
A comment on the post
“I used to feel this way too but then I did a session with Tracy and she makes you feel amazing in your own skin. I’m a mom of 4 and my body is not anywhere near some of the more model types… my pictures turned out absolutely stunning. I was very apprehensive about doing a session because I couldn’t picture myself looking good photographed that way either. After my session she completely changed my way of thinking about how I looked at myself and other women. We can all look beautiful photographed this way because we are all beautiful no matter what shape or size we are.”
“No matter what size a woman is, we have all had our struggles. I was anorexic for many many years and still struggle with it at times. It left me with a horrible body image and much self-loathing. At the age of 36, I still couldn’t accept myself and my body….
Then, I found Tracy and I knew that I needed to do something so I could see myself as beautiful as others do. Doing this photo shoot was one of the best things I could have done for myself. Tracy will tell you that I was extremely hard on myself when I saw the photos for the first time. All I saw were the flaws and imperfections. But then she helped me see the beauty in my photos and in myself. Now I am so proud of how I look and how the photos turned out. I show everyone I can! And when I see one of my photos posted on FB or Instagram, it just lights up my day. Take a chance on yourself and know you are beautiful. :)”
More about the group
This specific post was about whether or not you could ever see yourself doing more than one session. So many of my previous clients chimed in and said absolutely! Many have already scheduled their next session because they feel so empowered and so beautiful in their own skin- seriously, my job is amazing.
Not only do we talk about empowerment and confidence, but we also talk about weddings, Netflix, books, wardrobe, tans, makeup and hair, and anything else you can think of! I also host a weekly drawing for a Starbucks gift card! Who doesn’t want that?
The best part?
The group is all women! You don’t have to worry about some creepy dude checking out our conversations. We can discuss whatever we want!
