Boudoir photography is typically thought of as something a woman does for her man. I see it as something you do for yourself with the additional perk of gifting your fiancé, husband, or boyfriend a beautiful album in the end. Body confidence is my end goal.
Body Confidence and Loving Yourself
I think all women, no matter the size, struggle with body confidence. It’s just something we all deal with. We have a certain angle we prefer with selfies. We have a better side or we hate our profile. Most of this is in our heads and no one else actually sees it, but we still deal with it every single day.
The most important thing you can do is not compare yourself to others! You are beautiful just as you are! Boudoir photography can show you this.
I have had so many women see a huge change in their mindset after their session. During a recent session, I had a client cry seeing herself in the photos, not because she hated what she saw. She cried because she LOVED what she saw. This client has a daughter and in her photos she saw the stretch marks that came from pregnancy and creating life. It was so powerful!
I have had clients see their cellulite and realize that it’s not a bad thing! It’s something we all have (yes even tiny models). Clients with scars specifically ask me not to remove them in the photos because they make them who they are. Some hate one side of their profile so much, but when they see the images, they don’t even notice their profile. I seriously love seeing clients learning to love themselves after sessions. It’s why I do what I do!
Everyone is Nervous.
Just know that almost every client is nervous before their boudoir photography session. It’s normal! I have mimosas. My studio is a judgement free zone. And we will most definitely have a blast!
