I want to be confident.

I want to feel confident.

I want to be seen as a confident woman.

The secret to confidence, is you often have to do before you feel. You have to act as if you are confident, do things you imagine you would do if you were a confident person. After awhile, you realise you are no longer acting, you simply are a confident woman. Confidence is not something most people think their way into being; confidence is a feeling acquired by an accumulation of actions.

Most of the women who come to our studio are struggling with self-confidence. Many don’t love their bodies and are their own worst critic. When we ask our new clients what they love about themselves, the list is often only an item or two long, but when we inquire about things they insecure about, the list is often 5 or more items in length. That’s exactly why they are coming for a boudoir photoshoot – to change the way they see themselves. Our clients want to shift the narrative they have about themselves from negative to positive.

Sometimes, we have to take a dramatic action to really shake up our life. We need to invest in ourselves to make a bold statement about our self worth. There are times when we just need to be photographed in gorgeous lingerie to bring out our sense of confidence. We have to show up for ourselves even if we are nervous, even if we lack self-belief. To get from where you are, to where you want to be, sometimes you have to channel your future self, and act as if you are already her. 

The transformation we witness in our boudoir studio is one of my favourite aspects my work. I love meeting a new client, holding space for their nerves and their insecurities, and then having them experience the magic of boudoir, discovering their inner confidence and by the end of session, they are feeling immensely better about themselves. 

We hear so many women share with us that they would love to do a boudoir photoshoot, but they simply aren’t confident enough. I always tell them, a lack of confidence is exactly why they SHOULD do a boudoir session. Boudoir is all about empowerment! Even if you are “acting as if” in order to book your photoshoot, by the time you are finished your session, you won’t be acting. You will truly leave the studio a confident woman.
