Today I wanted to share a little blog post about Confidence! It is one of my absolute favourite subjects and something that I am so incredibly passionate about. As a boudoir photographer and as a woman, I believe that every woman deserves to feel confident within herself. Not just in her body, but the way she lives her life. Empowerment and confidence are my “why” for photographing boudoir. I absolutely love how it can incite change in my clients life by stepping out of their comfort zone and owning who they are.. flaws and all.
One of the things that I love to do is to hear what my clients think about boudoir photography and what confidence means to them. When a client enquires, I ask them “What does confidence mean to you?” and it very interesting to see their answers. Today, I wanted to share these with you.
“Finding your strengths and being proud of them! There are definitely areas of my body and myself that aren’t perfect – but it’s so much more empowering to focus on the things that I do love and showcase those things. When I remember what I love about myself, I feel confident and then I am able to try more things and push myself further.” – Miss A
