Outdoor Boudoir Photography: Take Your Power Back

Outdoor Boudoir Photography: There are all kinds of reasons to do a boudoir photo shoot.  Maybe you are getting married and want to floor your groom.  Maybe you want to surprise your special someone with an unexpected gift for a holiday.  Or maybe you just want to do something for yourself.  If you don’t fall into the first two categories, but the last one resonates with you…more power to YOU!  We all experience difficult situations in our lives.  We all go through things that cause us heartbreak and pain, sorrow and grief.  That’s how life works when you are brave enough to love.  The good news?  The things that don’t kill us make us stronger.  Cliche, you ask?  Yes, perhaps.  But, there is a truth in that statement, cliche or not.

However, in my experience, there’s a catch.  When something devastating happens in your life, the only one that can really fix it for you, is you.  It’s a matter of changing your perspective and taking time to genuinely heal.  And perhaps most importantly, learning to love yourself.  Sometimes we need to be reminded of our innate beauty and of our strength.   Other people can help with that process, but at the end of the day, you are the only one that can control how you think about the events that have taken place, how you think about yourself, and how you want your life to look moving forward.

Four years ago something happened to me that changed my life forever.  In a nutshell, I lost my husband and my adopted son in one fell swoop while I was away on business, never to be seen or heard from again.  It was the most traumatic experience of my entire life and it took me a long time to come out of the darkness around that event.  Shortly after that happened I had a friend offer to do a boudoir photo shoot for me.  In the moment I didn’t understand how much impact that one hour would have on my life, but in looking back I have come to realize that it was the first step in relearning to see myself as a beautiful, powerful, and strong woman that deserves to be happy.

It didn’t all happen overnight, but it wasn’t until after that experience that began I realized the power of boudoir photography.  It’s an art form that takes you into your vulnerability- literally stripped- and brings you out on the other side with a new view of yourself.  It’s an experience that is, for most, scary and out of the box.  And yet, I have never photographed a woman in this way that has regretted the experience.  When you face things that scare you and you are brave enough to look at yourself in a new way, you grow.  I don’t claim to understand exactly how that works, just that it does.

If you or someone you know needs to be reminded of just how amazing and beautiful you/they are, call me.  I will help you see yourself in a way that will literally change the way you look at yourself and potentially your life.  That is a promise.[oqeygallery id=377]
