This isn’t Ashley’s first rodeo.
She knows the power of a boudoir session from our shoot together 4 years ago. Since then we’ve both been through the emotional roller coaster of a divorce. She gained weight and wasn’t feeling super in love with herself, but her man still finds her sexy so she wanted to see it, too.
Was she scared of this decision?
Hell yeah she was. She was afraid of the way she would see herself in the photos. After her shoot she said:
While I struggle with my self image these days, I was very happy with the results of our session and it truly made me see my inner and outer beauty.
When I asked her what she would want to take with her from this experience and never forget, she replied:
That our bodies can change over time and through certain life stages but that will never define what’s on the inside and how sexy confidence is whether you’re a size 2 or 20.
The biggest reason I hear from women why they’re not ready to do their shoot yet is because they want to lose weight first.
And I totally get it. If you’re not feeling in love with yourself and they way your body looks why on earth would you put that body in front of a stranger wearing barely anything?! My response to that way of thinking?
You can’t afford NOT to do it.
Life is absolutely precious. Every single second of every single day we get to live of it is a sacred gift. You can’t afford to waste one more day wishing you were thinner, or younger, or something other than what you are. You know better than anyone how much your self judgement seeps into your everyday life. The way it manifests as irritability with others, or exhaustion, or hiding yourself from the world. Finding your self confidence is the greatest gift you can give yourself. It affects every area of your life.
Whether you book your own boudoir shoot or not,
do something right now to help you build your self confidence.
