Embracing newfound confidence and self-love, many individuals choose to embark on a boudoir session after a divorce. It’s a chance to celebrate their unique beauty and journey, capturing moments of strength, resilience, and personal growth. Through the lens of a professional photographer, these sessions become a powerful symbol of empowerment and self-expression, reminding them that they are worthy of love, both from others and, most importantly, from themselves. It’s a beautiful way to turn the page on a new chapter in life and rediscover the allure within.

Ms. K decided to do a boudoir shoot in our Vancouver studio for herself and here is what she told us.

I have had the most difficult past 2 years. I just finished going through a divorce. After 23 years. It was the most difficult thing I’ve been through. It was very stressful. My mental health suffered terribly. I was always very strong until I wasn’t. I survived some very dark days. Thoughts that crossed my mind was shocking, and now unthinkable. I no longer have self harm thoughts. I did a lot of counseling, and very proud of what have accomplished to make myself better. So I wanted to do this shoot to capture myself. Represent where I was, where I am now and where I’m going. To capture my strength and resilience. I’m stronger than I realized. It’s been a long time since I did something just for me. This was for me. It was exactly what I needed at the time to give me a little extra push. I used this opportunity as one of the first steps of creating a new life journey. Realizing the possibilities that I can create the best life possible moving forward.

What did doing this shoot do for your self confidence, self worth and self image?

“Oh there truly are no words!, I feel empowered, beautiful, sexy, and very self confident. I didn’t see myself as others see me. I’ve always been told I’m sexy and beautiful. But never could believe it. My self-esteem had been shattered. All my life I struggled with that. I presented myself strong and confident, but the truth is I did not believe in myself. Felt I was never good enough.

Making the decision of actually going through with the divorce took a toll on my confidence, my self-esteem and my self-worth. Once I began coming out of the darkness I was in. I knew I needed to do this boudoir shoot. I was so excited when I booked it and it gave me something look forward to. Although I had to reschedule twice because I struggled with myself, and didn’t feel I would accomplish what I wanted to accomplish.

So when I finally did my shoot, it was absolute perfect timing for me. I finally things in my life for coming together. I was ready to move on and start to discover me. From the moment, I walked in to do my shoot I was made to feel that I was a queen. It was all about me. As women we don’t always get to be selfish for a day. I was so confident in myself that I was able to get photos done that I didn’t think I would be able to. My nude photos are amazing . Being able to be comfortable enough and doing it is very empowering.

I am 51 years old and for the first of my life I can see my sexiness and beauty. This whole experience has given me confidence and has empowered me in ways I did not expect.

Looking at my pictures, I can actually see myself as others do. I absolutely loved this whole experience. I cannot wait to do it again.”
