Boudoir Photos Build Self Confidence
Today I had a post shoot consultation with one of my boudoir clients, and this consultation was a little different than most. Although I'm not quite comfortable having males at the shoot, I've recently decided to allow them to come to the photo viewing appointment that takes place a couple of weeks after the shoot, because that way he can help choose the photos he loves of my client. Today was the first time that a significant other has come to the photo viewing.
While the clients are viewing the photos initially, I go in the other room so they can do that in private. I could hear them out their giggling a little and talking about how great the photos turned out. Of course that made me feel good. I love when my clients love the photos. But what happened next was a lot more significant to me and made me feel so great about my work. Some people disapprove of shoots like this and only see it as a sexual thing. There's a lot more to it, and my clients spouse made that clear today. He was overwhelmed in a good way. He thanked me for offering this service and told me how great it was. He said that his wife is a stunning and beautiful woman that he loves dearly, but that she doesn't always see herself as that, and that she's often self-conscience or insecure. He saw a transformation in her through this shoot. He said that he saw her seeing her true beauty while going through the photos. He saw her seeing herself the way he sees her, and that was very meaningful and impactful to him. He couldn't stop thanking me for giving his wife that experience.
It's things that this that make my job so important. I'm glad that I can help strengthen relationships and that I can help women see their true beauty and gain self-confidence. Boudoir photography is a lot more than it may seem to some, and I am so thankful that I am able to do this for others.
