I have always had issues with my body. I felt like I was too fat, too short, too pale... As I get older, I am realizing that all of those negative thoughts I have aren’t true. My body is healthy, strong, smart and it gets me through the day. These positive thoughts, of course, don’t always come easily. I have to constantly remind myself that I am enough.
Because I have always felt insecure about my body, I never thought I could do a boudoir session. I needed to wait until I lost a few pounds. But you know what? No one knows what life is going to hold tomorrow. I decided that it was something that I wanted to do, and so when @modernboudoir
reached out, I jumped at the chance! .
The day of the shoot, getting my hair and makeup done by @afterglowprostudio
, enjoying myself and embracing the experience, I had the best time! Cassie of @modernboudoir
made me feel so relaxed when she was taking the pictures. It was so fun and I felt beautiful, sexy and incredible. Something that I don’t feel often.
After the shoot, getting to see the images that we created, again, it made me smile. I love who I am, and I am celebrating what my body looks like at all stages of my life.
I always thought boudoir was for a gift to give to a husband, boyfriend or significant other (which it certainly can be!) But what I quickly found out is that it was a gift that I gave myself. I allowed myself to celebrate my beauty and embrace it. And honestly? I have never felt so happy about being me!
A full blog is coming in the next few weeks detailing my experience with @modernboudoir
but until then, enjoy this sneak peak!
And if you are considering doing a session for yourself, mention me to Cassie and get $50 off if you book by 3/14! 📷: @modernboudoir
