What does Self Love mean to you?
N: Self love means loving yourself despite whatever imperfections you may think you have. It’s about loving and seeing yourself as your best girlfriends see you.
Why did you want to do a Boudoir Session?
N: I have had body image issues for as long as I can remember. I’ve struggled with my weight ever since I hit puberty. I always thought it would be fun to do a boudoir shoot, but didn’t think I had the “right body” to do so. I initially signed up to do a boudoir shoot with Ashley to help motivate me to work out more and focus on my nutrition.
Before the photo shoot, I worked out but didn’t end up losing the weight that I wanted or toning my “problem areas”. I went ahead with it anyways and cannot tell you how much this boosted my self confidence. I never truly saw myself in this light… the light that my closest girlfriends always saw in me. Ashley made me feel so confident and comfortable throughout the photo shoot. I tell all of my friends how empowered this photo shoot made me feel and recommend they do a boudoir shoot as well. I definitely plan on doing another boudoir shoot in the future!
