Living an authentic life is a struggle for most of us (myself included). It’s daunting to figure out the unanswered question: who am I, really? The path to self-discovery is different for everyone. However, one thing remains the same – it has to be something you do for yourself and yourself alone. At this point, the question becomes, where do I start? Miss E asked herself this very question and began her own journey to self-love and authenticity. Let’s find out how she did it!
“An authentic life finally felt achievable after my boudoir session.
I know that might sound like an exaggeration,” Miss E said, “but it’s been life-changing. After a couple of years on HRT and finally feeling like my body was my own, I wanted to book a session to celebrate my transition and bring out my more sensual side. While I was confident I was in good hands at Simply Lush (based on another friend’s amazing experience), I was still a little (a lot) terrified. My biggest fear was that I would end up looking masculine and feeling dysphoric over my anatomy.
My fear turned out to be completely false. Instead, I feel so much more in love with and confident in my body.
I really found a whole new appreciation for my sexuality and beauty as a result of this experience. I feel like I’m seeing myself through new eyes and seeing the beauty beyond the surface-level things that I normally would get caught upon. For the first time in what feels like forever, I completely forgot about my insecurities and just had fun feeling sexy. It’s so freeing to feel like my body and sexuality are more my own and that a whole new side of my womanhood has been brought to light. Want to know what my part was, though?
My favorite part was Ashley’s cheerleading for me during my session.
I came in feeling insecure over so many parts of my body, but I found it impossible to feel insecure when I had someone telling me how great my legs and booty were! Frankly, the entire experience was dreamlike. My hair and makeup have never looked better, and everyone was so wonderful to work with. This has easily been one of the best experiences of my life. My dysphoria often makes it hard to look beyond small things like a hint of facial hair but looking at my finished photos; I feel like I can see the forest for the trees with my own beauty. Like I’m finally seeing the beautiful woman everyone else sees that I’m often blinded to, and I can never thank Simply Lush enough for that.”
