I detest boudoir *before and afters*. There’s something so “you weren’t enough and now you are” about them. I’ve never done one in my entire 10 year career. But I do wish there was another way I could communicate that 99% of the people I work with are not models. I think a #1 insecurity for people is “I’m not going to look like THAT, this isn’t going to work for ME”.
You are going to look like that and this is going to work for you. Almost every single person I have photographed has been right where you are. Little-to-no experience in front of the camera. The only reason my lovely clients should be put on a pedestal is for being badass babes who conquered their fear like a champ and came out on the other side with confidence AND incredible photos to match! And aside from the photos, I often hear after sessions “I honestly would have done this without the photos, I’ve gotten so much just from the experience alone, they are really just the cherry on top!” So if that helps your mindset going in, then lean into that…
You’re here for an empowering experience, fuck what the photos look like! BUT bonus: they’re gonna be amazing and you’re gonna lose your mind when you see them!
