Hello gorgeous ladies...i have decided to do a daily blog about the top 10 excuses i hear from woman why they will not, or cannot do a boudoir shoot...
I think in today's world we are exceptionally hard on ourselves...and I am not saying that i am excluded from this...i am extremely hard on myself and turning 40 this year was hard for me...harder than I ever imagined it would be as my body has changed so much...ha ha need some boob lift cream for sure!!!
Anyway so i thought i would mention some of the excuses and blog about them each day.
I hope this gets you thinking ladies...and i hope that i can convince you to come for this confidence boosting session...trust me when i say you won't regret it. So yes that is me in some of the images below...and yes i am not at my “lightest” but it shows you with the right angles and photographer you can really look amazing!
So lets get started on one of the first excuses...and probably the most common i hear!
1. I need to lose weight first.
If you have done a shoot with me then you have heard me say to you “ the more curves you have the better”, “its all about the angles”, your shoot is about SO much more than just the shape of your body.
It's my job to make you comfortable so I can capture your genuine laugh, the sparkle in your eyes, and all the other THINGS that make you "YOU".
Besides, expert posing, lighting, wardrobe advice, expert makeup and hairstyling...some bubbly of course I will having you looking slimmer than you have ever thought possible!
You are not defined by your size, so don't let it keep you from feeling good about the incredible woman you are...!
My studio is welcoming and encouraging to women of every single size. No exceptions. Whether you are a 00, 4, 8, 14, 18, 22, 28 or any other number on the spectrum, you are beautiful, powerful, strong and you DESERVE to be confident and look sexy! I have had clients contact me after other studios have turned them down based on their age, weight, mobility or medical condition. Often, they are very reluctant to even contact another studio because of how badly that made them feel. This will NEVER happen with me or in my studio. Ever.
I adore photographing curvy women and helping women who may struggle with seeing themselves as beautiful. It’s one of the most rewarding parts of my job because I love showing women how I see them.
I don’t see what you see when you look at yourself. I don’t see the flaws or the things you give yourself such grief about.
I see what makes you beautiful. In 7 years I have not once met a woman I didn’t see as beautiful. I find the things that make YOU unique and play up all of your best and favorite features. I ask that the studio stay a safe, body-positive place. If you start to talk down about yourself or fault find, I’m going to remind you to tell yourself positive things.
I’m not unrealistic.
I know that almost all women have things they would rather conceal about themselves or parts that aren’t their favorite. Don’t worry! We’ll talk about those too, particularly in your pre-session consult and in your questionnaire. I can’t help you disguise those areas if I don’t know what they are. But once we start shooting I’m going to ask that you keep an open mind and tell yourself that you are just as gorgeous as any other woman on this planet and just as worthy of a spectacular boudoir experience. I’m also going to help you pose and teach you how to rock those curves so you can look your absolute best!
Here are some gorgeous examples of a few of our curvy clients! Some came in nervous about looking their best, some walked in embracing every inch of themselves and some fell somewhere in the middle of the two… but they all walked out with a newfound confidence and a bounce in their step! Never let a number on a scale determine how you feel about yourself, and never let it stop you from booking a boudoir shoot of your own!
I’ll help you decide what to wear and teach you how to play up every one of your favorite assets! I can also coach you in the best way to camouflage areas you may not love so much. But, in the end, what I really want is for you to embrace who you are in the moment. Love yourself.
