At first glance, the connection between boudoir photography and therapy may not be so obvious… And I totally understand why!
There are many misconceptions out there about what boudoir shoots are all about. Some assume they are all about vanity or making women look desirable according to society’s standards of beauty… This couldn’t be more inaccurate.
Our sessions open the door to a whole new world of personal growth and self-discovery through creating fine art images that celebrate your individuality and sensuality.
For many of my clients, booking a boudoir session is a radical act of self-care that helps them step out of their comfort zones and push through their long-held fears associated with sexuality, sensuality, body acceptance, or self-love and into a more whole, healed version of themselves.
There are so many different aspects of your session experience that facilitate this healing shift.
One of those aspects being that two trained counselors will be guiding you through your boudoir journey…
Yep…pretty amazing that both my Studio Manager, Tricia, and I have our Master’s Degrees in Counseling, which I am beyond thrilled to share with you.
This means that we are fully equipped to support you through your experience with compassion, care, thoughtfulness, and a whole lot of empowerment.
We get that doing a boudoir session can bring up some vulnerabilities that you may or may not have been expecting prior to shoot day, and we want to empower you through those moments rather than shy away from them.
In turn, you’ll come away from your experience with a deeper sense of confidence and connection to yourself that you’ll be reminded of each and every time you see the photos we create together.
“A photo shoot with Lindsay is like a year’s worth of therapy!”
Yep, my clients say things like that often – they make the former counselor in me SO happy.
No matter where you are on your journey, my team and I are here to meet you where you are and help you tune into your true essence.
There is no need to lose the “extra weight” or become more confident before the shoot. The purpose of our time together is to show you how to love yourself exactly as you are right here and now. Through our body-positive posing direction, we’ll work through some of your negative body image perceptions as we celebrate what makes you exactly who you are.
Self-acceptance and deeper self-love are the best gifts you can give yourself, but my dear you won’t achieve these goals if you don’t show up for yourself.
It’s like the brilliant Meryl Streep once said, “Start by starting.”
When planning your shoot, there are so many little details, like your wardrobe picks as an example, that may seem minuscule but are truly an opportunity to sit with your inner desires and pursue them unapologetically.
Every step of the way we will be encouraging you, particularly through your pre-shoot consultation and our prep materials, to give those desires the time and attention they deserve.
Our work together is less about making you “looking HOT” (although that’s an awesome byproduct, don’t get me wrong!) and more about getting in touch with your sensual inner fire and recognizing the beauty in your uniqueness.
This is your time for you to celebrate yourself! Your past traumas and life obstacles are not stigmas, but are actually individual steps towards healing, each one to be recognized and honored.
We can reframe how you perceive your past so that events which may have left you feeling powerless or small, are ultimately the catalyst to your personal evolution.
Exciting, riiight?! And all this happens while having a blast and creating stunning portraits together that will make you fall head over heels in love with yourself.
Ready to fall in love with yourself like never before?
The first step to booking your boudoir shoot is to schedule a complimentary phone consultation with our Studio Manager, Tricia.
During your call, Tricia is going to walk you through what to expect, answer any questions you may have, and get you booked for your shoot if you’re ready.
Tricia’s a warm and welcoming soul that I am honored to have on the team!
I am so excited for you to meet her…
