Do you often say, “no,” to new experiences even though you really would love to try them? Do you ever wonder why that happens? From personal experience, I can say it usually has something to do with fear. Fear of the unknown, of not being great at something, or even fear of change. What would happen, though, if we just accepted the power of “yes”?
Our most recent client, Miss M, came into the studio on the wings of a personal journey to allow herself new experiences. When we asked her about her experience, she said, “I nosed around and looked at boudoir photography for a while, but I never thought it was something I would or should do. When the opportunity came up to enter your All-Inclusive Giveaway, I had to talk myself into applying. I figured there was no way I’d be considered, so why not? And then I ended up being one of the winners. I was definitely terrified and wasn’t sure I could go through with it.
Right now I’m really trying to live my second chance life with the power of “yes” and get outside of my comfort zone.
So, long story short I decided to go for it (obviously), and guess what? It was not at all what I had feared. Truthfully, My biggest fear was that I just wouldn’t like how I looked in the pictures or that I’d feel awkward posing and it would come through on the final images. A lot of those feelings have to do with the fact that I’ve never been a person that is super confident in how I look. In fact, I’ve always considered myself on the uglier side of life. However, this experience had me saying, ‘Why did I think I looked so shitty? I look beautiful.’
This experience also opened my eyes to see it’s okay to be a sensual human.
For 5 years, now, I’ve been hustling to rebuild my life. Always working, being the single mom, the helpful daughter, the good girlfriend, and I lost sight of myself. So, it was just amazing to have this session and slip out of the expectations for the morning and celebrate me! All-in-all it was just a lot of fun basking in my own sensuality, and I left the studio feeling better than I have in a long time.
Seriously, no matter how much you think boudoir photography is not for you; I urge you to step outside yourself and try it.
Before my session, I felt nauseous so I can empathize with feeling out of your element. I am telling you though, it is so worth it. To be honest, I even brought my boyfriend to my reveal, and he cried when they came on the screen. It was such an amazing feeling all around – like I’ve been walking on cloud nine ever since. The session was life-changing from start to finish, and I am forever grateful for this experience.
