Everyone has an excuse as to why they don’t want to get in front of the camera. “I just need to lose some weight”, “I don’t like the way I look in photographs”, “I don’t have anything nice to wear”…. and the list goes on. It’s time to find your reason to get in front of the camera.
One of the most empowering photography sessions that I do is boudoir photography. So many women hear boudoir and immediately put up their defenses. The mere thought of being scantily clad in front of a camera absolutely terrifying.
I get it. It took me years just to feel comfortable being in my own family snap shots. I used every excuse I could think of. Then I started looking back through my photos and realized that my husband looked like a single father because there was no trace of me. I needed to stop making excuses and love myself for who I was at any given moment. My kids were never going to look back at the photos and say “Oh look mom really needed to lose those 5 lbs.” My kids will look back at photos and see a memory and remember a feeling.
Take the dive and feel empowered! Boudoir does not have to be lingerie or anything that makes you uncomfortable. Boudoir photography is about capturing your beauty and confidence. There is nothing sexier than a strong and confident woman. You do not have to be a certain size, shape or age. Every woman is beautiful!
Now is the time to find your reason to get in front of the camera. Is it to…
- have an image of yourself where you feel beautiful
- do something just for you
- celebrate a special milestone
- feel empowered
Whatever your reason is, do it.
