Your Body Is Beautiful NOW
I know you don't believe me. But your body is beautiful. It's a thing to be celebrated. You've been through so much with your body. Its brought you to this point. Even is it's not what you consider ideal, it really is a beautiful vessel. It's taken you on trips, it's brought you through sorrow, it walked you down the aisle at your wedding, it bore your children, it keeps you alive. It's worth celebrating exactly as it is.
For those of you on a weight loss journey or who want to begin a weight loss journey, it's especially important to love your body exactly the way it is. When you love yourself, you learn to be kind to yourself, which makes it easier to make the healthy decisions your body needs you to make. Does that mean you shouldn't lose weight? Not necessarily- that could be very important to your future health depending on your personal life. It simply means to love yourself...and not to hate yourself. Boudoir is a beautiful way to commemorate your body and to love it. Women who want to lose weight or think they're 'too big' for sessions like this, often come in hesitant about what their final photos will look like. And every single one has left loving everything about their photos. They learn to fall in love with themselves and their weight after their boudoir session. It's a very important tool in learning to love yourself exactly the way you are. And once you love yourself, the process of being kind to yourself is much easier.
Posing To Hide Problem Areas
Yes, you still have reservations. You have love handles. You have rolls. You are in a size that makes you want to cry. You're afraid you'll look awkward or not like all of the other beautiful images you've seen. You think only skinny girls can look good in these kinds of photos.
Do you want to know my secret? It's posing and angles. I've taken many classes to learn how to make ALL women look good in their photos. I know how to pose you to hide or minimize your personal areas of insecurity.
I've got you! You've got this! We've got this! Let's celebrate your body exactly the way it is now! Your weight doesn't define you!
Testimonials From Self Proclaimed 'Curvy Girls'
Before my session I felt like everyone would notice my cellulite and flabby belly and asymmetrical breasts. I was nervous about other people (including Ashley and Jade) seeing me nearly naked. It made me cry because I was so worried that I would hate my pictures that it would be a waste of money because I could only see my flaws.
Now that I've had my session, I just don't feel like that anymore. I still don't like that I'm overweight and I want to improve it still, but it doesn't consume me when I look in the mirror. I regularly look at my pictures still in awe that I could look like that without photoshop.
A boudoir session liberated me from hating my body to the point that I would be ashamed to leave my apartment. I now walk out of my apartment feeling like a million dollars. It doesn't matter that only a few people have seen my pictures, and don't know what I look like expertly posed. I know what I looked like, and it makes me feel damn good.
After getting added to the VIP group I was in awe with all these beautiful women/poses showing off their curves ..I finally got enough courage to do it my self estem had been running low, I was about to turn 40. I do workout several times a week but I did try and put a little more effort for my pictures I have always been a curvy chubby girl and you know what, I'm okay with it..I want my daughter to be confident in her body as well. I have shown her my pictures and she loves them. I have embraced my curvy body and the photo session helped me become more confident in my own skin
I went into the session kinda hoping that I would come out looking at least decent. Since my accident in 2007, I have avoided cameras and pictures. These came out amazing and my scares didn’t show at all! I loved them all!
I booked my session many many months in advance and opted for the advance payment plan with Ashley... knowing I had plenty of time to lose the 20-30lbs I had gained when my job changed from being slightly active to sedentary. When Ashley told me I looked like a model I almost cried! What I am at the heaviest I have ever been in my entire life, contemplating bypass surgery, and she told me I look like a model! Then she showed me a pic on the back of her camera... who the F is that... not me!!! Holy shit, I didn’t know I could make those faces! The reveal, what a whole other experience! I still cannot believe that is me! I picked out my favorites for the album! That was so hard! Ashley and Jade have made me look at myself and my body in a whole other light! I have never been super self conscious about my body, always have been plus size, but ok with it, until just recently had I started wanting to “fix” things! I know I need to lose weight to be healthier, but I have never been more in love with my curves than I am now!
