In this article from Glamour Magazine, we learned that 97% of young women have a negative view of their body! We couldn’t decide if this came as a shock to us or as a sad reflection of what we hear every time we meet with a new client.
We are dedicated to growing the 3% – that dramatic minority of women who are perfectly okay with their bodies, just as they are. We firmly believe that EVERY woman has the God-given gift of beauty, and it is the purpose of our studio to remind you of that.
Boudoir photography is such a powerful means of overcoming self-image issues! I know that sounds more like a sales pitch than a meaningful statement, but it couldn’t be more true. The vast majority of our clients come to us detailing every flaw they can think of, hoping we can ‘hide’ something: “I’ve had ___ kids, so…”, “I really hate my ___”, “Can you photoshop my ___”, “My boobs are too small”, “My thighs are too big”, “My butt isn’t big enough”, “My butt is too big”. The transformation of self-image after a session with us is remarkable! Those comments turn into: “I feel so sexy!”, “My curves look hot!”, “I have never felt so beautiful”.
That’s why we do what we do. Our sessions are a blast, our parties are the best, and we love hearing how much a husband loves his gift album, but nothing is more satisfying for us than to see the change that takes place in a woman during a photo shoot. We can visibly see the return of her confidence, the change of her perspective, and the shift of focus from her perceived flaws to her obvious beauty….and this is before she’s seen a single photo from the session.
If you have been considering a boudoir shoot, but haven’t set it up because you’re not happy with you, then you absolutely need to get in for a session. You are beautiful, just as you are! We have photographed women that have rattled off every possible reason why they think they’re not beautiful, and we have a consistent track record of proving them wrong. The camera doesn’t lie, and we love showing the real, indisputable truth of a woman’s beauty to her.
On that note, we never do any kind of post-production work that changes a woman’s size or shape. We are so proud of our abilities as boudoir photographers to make a woman feel beautiful in her own skin that we refuse to allow Photoshop to change that. When you see how gorgeous you look in your pictures, you can get an extra boost of confidence by knowing that it is YOUR body you are looking at – it is who you already are, not who you wish you could be.
We also know that there are photographers out there who seem to think that only plus-size women have body issues, but we invite ALL women of ALL shapes and sizes to experience the renewed sense of self-confidence and empowerment that a boudoir session will offer. Statistically speaking, if you are a woman reading this, you can identify with having a negative self-image. It’s time to leave the 97%.
You are beautiful.
