The moment I realized that Boudoir had been my dream all along, was with this session.
I posted a model call to test the waters before I went through with a requested maternity boudoir session I had booked.
After delivering the images for the model call, I received a long message and my immediate thought was “oh no….what’s wrong with the pictures” and it was the exact opposite. The message went along the lines of appreciation because this was an experience she didn’t even realize she needed and she never thought of herself in the way the images represented her, and it felt good.
In reading this message….I realized that’s what I NEEDED too. The thing is….this woman is also a passionate entrepreneur…and it was never about needing something to build self esteem or building confidence….it’s about seeing yourself better than you did yesterday. It’s about taking a break and seeing a gorgeous image of yourself and
IN THAT MOMENT, you’re not thinking “oh, Sally is way more gorgeous than me” or “I’ll never be as confident as her”.
You’re thinking about how the beautiful woman in that image is YOU….and how gorgeous SHE is.
Seeing the best version of yourself can completely change the direction of life you believe you are worth.
In that moment, I realized how much more powerful this was for me than any other type of photography…It truly spoke to my heart in a way that
gave me no other option but to pursue it in it’s entirety.
