Some people become doctors, teachers, or politicians, some throw themselves into the world of finance or sales, and some run full steam into the sciences. Thank goodness they have aswell – the vaccination news is just amazing. These essential jobs have their place on this Earth and I’m grateful to every single person who chooses any of the aforementioned career paths (and all the ones I didn’t name).
I’ll be the first to admit that boudoir photography isn’t exactly “essential,” (nothing like a lockdown to put you in your place!) and that it might even be misunderstood by some. But there’s one thing I know from personal experience doing this work: it changes lives.
It’s no secret that women, specifically, face a brutal and judgmental world. One filled with marketing images of airbrushed “perfection,” and marketing ploys to become “better” through diet, supplements, gym memberships, and more. Baring all in front of the camera — (not quite but you get my drift) — may seem like a way to highlight every self-perceived flaw that women are taught to believe about themselves, but I’m here to tell you that a boudoir session has the complete opposite effect for my ladies.
Boudoir sessions empower women. They give them space to unleash their curves, to forget about all the marketing noise, to celebrate their bodies in a way they’ve never done before. I may not have an “essential” job that saves literal lives or educates our children, but just like I value those careers I think — no, I know — there’s value in what I do as a boudoir photographer, too.
The proof? Every women who steps in front of my camera and walks away feeling more sure of herself and more beautiful than ever before. You don’t need to be full of confidence to do a boudoir session – it provides you WITH the confidence to walk through the rest of your life!
If you still feel unsure – and you haven’t already – do join my private ladies only group on Facebook. It is full of ladies who were so unsure before their session saying how much they wished they’d done it sooner.
I’m delighted to be able to go back to work next week – we are booking 2021 quickly now so hopefully I can make up for all those weeks of lockdown!
