After being a part time model for a few years, I decided to try the other side of the lens. I’ve been a photographer now for the last 7+ years. I’ve seen from being in front of, to behind the lens that photo shoots are a secret key to self confidence.
Through experience and after photographing hundreds of women for beauty and boudoir portraits, I’ve found a few things most women have in common before their photo shoot.
Most women show up to the shoot thinking they won’t look as good as the women on my website, that they have to look a certain way or be a certain weight to look good in front of the lens, that they won’t like the photos of themselves, or that they’re “not photogenic”. This is common, sadly, most women don’t believe in their beauty….yet.
I’ve also found something that every woman I’ve photographed has in common at the end of their photo shoot... self confidence.
So what is it about a boudoir shoot that can change so many women’s perspectives of themselves?
I believe the answer is: Celebrating yourself for exactly what age and weight you are at this very moment (you are the youngest that you will ever be today), investing in yourself, stepping out of your comfort zone and seeing yourself through somebody else's eyes (and lens).
In the beginning of each of my photo shoots, I show my client one of the photos I took on my camera. This photo unretouched, unedited, just straight out of camera. I’ve had reactions ranging from disbelief to happy tears.
This is the first moment of them believing in their beauty.
This truly is life changing stuff.
After this initial step and guidance from the outfits for the day to every single pose, my clients only gain more and more confidence throughout the shoot, it’s a complete blast. The whole day feels like a fun girls day…
They end up with raised confidence, empowerment, feeling uplifted and beautiful artwork that they will treasure forever from the day.
If any of this sounds good to you I’d love to get you some more information.
