On Boudoir and Learning To Love Yourself

8:13 PM

It's been a while. Over a year. I'm ready to get back on the blogging saddle.

Sam and I shot her first boudoir series a couple weeks ago. In short, my philosophy on boudoir is as follows: these photos are meant to serve as an art form by showcasing the soul of intimacy. Whether the subjects in the photos are professional models, ladies looking for photos to give as gifts, or ladies looking for photos to keep for themselves, the photography is meant to universally speak for things that you usually can't say. With shooting something so intimate, I often find myself learning a lot about a person just in a few hours. Not only was this session fun and sexy, but empowering for the both of us. I've always believed that being comfortable in your own body is the first step to truly being happy, but a person must also recognize that acceptance and self-love will be a continuous work in progress. Sam and I talked for a while about "doing you" and taking this time (and this age) to figure out what you need in order to lead a fulfilling life, with no apologies. What I love most about this series is how evident that attitude is: how the bravery to literally reveal the "true you" in turn will reveal the beauty in what you ultimately want.
