Boudoir photography has gained a lot of notoriety in recent years, and we’re not surprised. It’s an empowering form of art that helps people increase confidence with their bodies. The best part? Just because you may be shy about your appearance doesn’t mean you should deprive yourself of this experience. I know what you’re thinking – how can a photograph possibly make someone more confident? Well, it’s actually very simple. When you are in front of the camera and feeling beautiful, sexy, or just plain gorgeous; your mind is able to release all those negative thoughts and self-doubt. But what about the long-term effects? Are there other benefits from giving yourself permission to indulge in this feminine ritual every now and then? We asked Miss A about her thoughts from her firsthand experience. Here’s what she had to say:
“I have wanted to do a boudoir session for years but never felt really comfortable reaching out to anyone before.
However, after seeing a friend’s photos that Ashley captured, I knew she was the perfect fit for this experience! At 47 years young, I’m not exactly in the typical age bracket for something like this. At least that’s something that I thought of before this experience. I worried that I would come across looking disingenuous and not at all like myself. Rather, the exact opposite happened. Ashley and I fully highlighted the stunning beauty that exists when barriers are removed & you are allowed to fully embrace all that it means to be your strong, independent self.
Not only did this experience increase confidence in my body, but I felt like I was on a movie set or in an art gallery!
I am absolutely stunned by what my body looks like when properly photographed by a professional. The pure artistry displayed in my photos is out of this world! I look like I could be on a gallery wall! I’ve never been short on confidence but this experience has truly turned my internal image of myself on its head! Not only that, but the environment was so professional and welcoming that I was sad to see the session end! Ashley was concise and focused in her instructions on how and where I should stand, how to breathe, and how best to highlight the body parts I wanted to highlight.
But, my favorite part was when Ashley and I talked about the fact that I could do a nude or partial nude set of photos. It was something I had contemplated but had never even considered feeling comfortable enough with someone I had just met, to do! Ashley and I worked magic that day with the camera and her positioning of me! Truly the nude photos are some of my favorites!
If you’ve been questioning a session, I have my own question for you: Have you ever wondered why your partner or significant other stares at you the way they do?
When you do a session with Ashley you will never wonder again! I’m serious. It will provide the opportunity to get out of your own way and embrace the gorgeousness that everyone else sees! There is not a thing about the experience that I would change. The quality of the photo albums, the promptness of communication, and the willingness to work with me are things I’ve never had matched by anyone else. As I live out of state in Florida they made accommodations to fit me into their schedule while I would be in town visiting family! Who does that? One of the best experiences of my life!”
