A few weeks ago, some of my favorite clients/friends in Saint Louis came by the studio for a session showcasing different body types for boudoir photography. Well, not just for boudoir photography. Just a shoot to show off beauty in different body types!
I’m not taking credit for this though. It was an idea of Missy of Just Fakin Tans and Gillian of Momshells.com. They came up with it during a girls’ night out in St. Louis. What better way to uplift women than a photoshoot with beautiful women with different body types and skin tones?
Body types for boudoir photography
I think by now, if you’ve read many of my blogs or paid any attention to my social media/website at all, you know I think all body types for boudoir photography are ideal.
Boudoir photography is not only an amazing gift for that special person in your life, it’s also a great confidence boost for yourself. I’m sure you’ve heard and read all over about how great a boudoir session can make you feel.
And it’s true! Here’s a small excerpt of what my past client, Kaitlyn, said about her session.
“I truly believe the confidence my album gave me, overflowed into my wedding photos.”
But really this session was to show women we are ALL beautiful!
Beauty comes in all shapes, sizes, skin tones, hair colors. With makeup, without. Hair done or not. Everyone is beautiful in their own way.
Don’t let photoshop and everyone’s best self on social media make you feel like you’re any less beautiful than you are.
And if you need a confidence boost or are worried about your body types for boudoir photography, book a boudoir session with me. I will show you that you ARE beautiful, just the way you are.
