The magic of boudoir lies in its ability to completely shift the way you see yourself. We can become so stuck in how we perceive ourselves that sometimes, on our journey to self-love and acceptance, we need to do something that (might) feel a little dramatic. For many, a boudoir photoshoot feels a little out of their comfort zone, but it proves to be exactly what they need.

As boudoir photographers, our job is to highlight your natural beauty. To show you that you are beautiful. Seeing yourself captured as we see you, is one of the rare opportunities we get as humans to really see ourselves from someone else’s perspective. We tend to be so critical of ourselves, brining in old wounds and traumas, which distort our self-image. But seeing ourselves through someone else’s eyes, or in this case, through our lens, allows us to see ourselves differently. This opens the possibility to shift our perspective of ourselves. It’s a truly healing opportunity…just ask Ms. L.

What was your favourite part of the session?

It was incredibly empowering and playful. The moments when I looked in the mirror and saw myself through a totally different perspective.

How did doing this photoshoot effect your self-confidence and self-image?

It was enlightening as it closed the gap between the “professional model” photos out there and little old me. It’s amazing when your features are highlighted and your poses are well curated, that just about anyone can look totally stunning. I’m shocked at how incredible the photos turned out, I never thought that I’d be capable of being showcased so beautifully.

I feel like I was able to see the power in myself more clearly, and I’m looking forward to having tangible proof of that to keep with me.

What was the best part of the photoshoot experience for you?

Looking at the final photos was profound. I was emotionally moved to see myself in such a beautiful way.
I thought the whole experience was impactful and well orchestrated.

What advice do you have for others considering a boudoir photoshoot?

Bring a sheer robe, that shit was magic.
