“I don’t think many of us realize how often we look at ourselves in the mirror without really seeing ourselves. I put on makeup every day and see eyes, nose, lips, a belly that I think is too big… but this experience showed me an image of myself as a complete individual. The photos captured a spark that’s in me, that I had forgotten I have. If a picture is worth a thousand words, that remembrance is worth a thousand pictures.” -Sarah
I couldn’t have said it better myself. We don’t truly see ourselves as others see us when we look into the mirror or at a photograph. We always see what we perceive as “flaws” first. Our eyes go straight to that stomach pouch, or the cellulite that has accumulated on our thighs over the years (when did that get there?!).
That’s where boudoir photography comes in. We focus on accentuating your best assets while minimizing what you perceive as flaws. We give you the chance to see yourself as others see you. For some, it may be the very fist time they truly “SEE” themselves. Especially with clients who have reached a major weight loss or fitness goal. If you’re used to being a significant amount heavier, a lot of times it’s hard to see the progress you’ve made without critiquing your physique. A lot of women (men as well) still see the overweight version of themselves even though that person doesn’t exist anymore. It’s such an amazing feat to be able to sit across from someone who has never seen themselves and watch them re-discover their beauty.
