We shot this in between the lockdowns when most of us were feeling overwhelmed, frustrated and just not our own selves. After 6 months of school at home and running around taking care of everyone, it may be hard to feel on the top of the world. But I am so proud of Sophie for taking it all in stride, embracing, growing and expanding as a beautiful human that she is. Not only that, but also holding the space for others.

This level of vulnerability can feel overwhelming and baring, but it can also be empowering.

“Daring greatly is not about winning or losing. In a world where scarcity and shame dominate and feeling afraid has become second nature, vulnerability is subversive. Uncomfortable. It’s even a little dangerous at times. And, without question, putting ourselves out there means there’s a far greater risk of feeling hurt. But as I look back at my own life and what Daring Greatly has meant to me, I can honestly say that nothing is as uncomfortable, dangerous  and hurtful as believing that I’m standing on the outside of my life looking in and wondering what it would be like if I had the courage to show up and let myself be seen.”

Daring Greatly by Brené Brown.

We hear a lot about self-love being prerequisite to loving others, and it can be so much easier to love others and accept their quirks than to practice self-love around what we may see as our deep flaws. But anyone practicing self-love will tell you how much it deepens the relationship with others and how much courage it gives to show up.

Another aspect we rarely consider with sensual women portraits is that our perception of ourselves vary greatly from that of other people. I’ve been thoroughly enjoying witnessing the most amazing discoveries women have about themselves following their boudoir photography sessions and really value the trust put it me.

“I think the key is to be happy with yourself.”

Adele

 

Well, this girl, by far, had the best attitude! Entering into the next stage of her life, getting ready to share her life with her love forever and ever, she was adamant to celebrate herself! And I can only applaud her for this and be grateful she trusted me to capture her essence!

Below are some of my favourite images from the session

There is quite a misconception about what boudoir photography is. For the longest time I tried to find another word to describe the kind of work I’d be doing, but nothing seems fitting enough. So I will simply call this sessions “Love Yourself” because no matter how many times you are told that it is selfish, nobody can make you happy until you are happy with yourself first. I love these sessions because for once women get a chance to dress up, or down, and enjoy being themselves and not being ashamed of putting themselves first.

So this look for Emma, to those who know her a little closer, is perfectly descriptive of who she is. It’s even more meaningful because it was taken in her house.
