I did it! I still cannot believe it. I went for a boudoir photography shoot! The whole morning felt so surreal. True to myself, I obviously got lost on my way to the studio. I will have to write Santa a note this year and ask for a GPS because seriously, direction and I just don’t go well together; AT ALL.
Luckily when I got there eventually, everyone made me feel so welcome and at ease even though that little voice inside my head said: “What are you thinking”.
I sat down and had my make-up done by a lovely lady who is an artist herself because the way she transformed me was amazing. With each layer of make up my confidence slowly grew a bit bigger. Then it was time for the hair. The hair!!! Yes, my hair was screaming for attention after my stressful morning.
When the make-up and hair was finished and I had my cup of coffee I went to get dressed in my first outfit. I decided on a sexy black chiffon nighty and black underwear.
At first I felt so out of place and unsure but after a couple
of minutes and as I got more relaxed the tension subsided. I was lucky to have people around that I could feel comfortable with. Both the photographer and make-up artist was really amazing. They were true professionals and artists. Thanks to them I was transformed into a super model but what was more liberating and fun was the whole shoot itself.
That feeling; of accepting your body and just feeling absolutely gorgeous even with the extra curves and
cellulite because in the end beauty is all about how you feel and I felt great.
I did my second outfit change and by that time I was fully relaxed and having so much fun. I decided on turquoise underwear with a white men’s long-sleeve shirt. After my make-up was touched up I was back in the black room playing model. In that moment I knew that I want women to feel this way. EMPOWERED, LIBERATED, SENSUAL, AND GORGEOUS.
I cannot wait to be behind the camera and make women feel all this and so much
more because sadly we don’t always see our beauty. Too often do we rely on other people to tell us we are beautiful and too often do we supress our sensuality.
I decided to this because I started to accept my body and was thinking of a way I could get other women to do the same. This shoot made me feel so sexy and sensual. When I saw the photographs I was amazed at the woman staring out of them. CONFIDENT, STRONG, SENSUAL AND BEAUTIFUL. All women deserve to feel that way!
