Within a three hour period. hint: It’s not what you think.
I have been photographing women for almost a decade now. With that comes the unique experience of more than not, witnessing the harshness that we as women place on ourselves. This is not a behavior limited to the plus size sessions … however, it is across the board pertaining to all shapes and sizes.
In fact, in a lot of instances, it’s the women with seemingly the perfect face and body that tend to demonstrate the most insecurities.
I am really, seriously good at feeling the emotions of my clients. It’s not because I am a guru of any sort it’s just that I have been many of these women at one time or another, in one way or another.
basically, not enough.
It is very heavy, very heavy carrying around all of these insecurities.
I DO NOT MEAN PHYSICAL WEIGHT (AND THIS IS MEANT FOR YOU TOO, SIZE 3 SWEETIE…), but the emotional weight that comes with our life long programmed self-loathing dialogue. These damn burdens are “gifted” to us by our mother or father, sister, an old boyfriend, the magazine cover at the grocery store, lingerie catalog etc.
The burden is real, so is the struggle. It is not your burden to carry. It is your right to set it FREE.
So today what I want to talk about… is NOT about losing weight for your photo session, but how about perhaps BECAUSE OF IT.
When you set aside that day, to yourself, you are losing that weight.
When you choose to shed any inhibitions and let someone else “SEE” you, you are shedding the weight.
When you allow me to form your most beautiful features, you are shedding the weight.
When you enable yourself to indulge in what you deserve, you are losing the weight.
When you refuse to accept the judgments of others, you are dropping the weight.
Science proves this to be true, I looked it up. Twice.
Sometimes a client will delay booking a boudoir or beauty session because she worries that she won’t like the images because of these hangups. I promise she will. NOT because I am an arrogant photographer… but because I choose to see her best self.
I know how to photograph the best self features. It’s not about photoshop magic. It’s just the principles of posing, composition, and lighting.
And, the one mathematical principle I use often: The sum is always greater than its parts.
Come shed some weight with me. I am here for you. I am ready for you.
