When I was contacted by Miss R for boudoir portraits, she was initially quite hesitant to book her session. She mentioned one of her friends had visited the studio for boudoir and fine art nudes and loved her experience. During my phone consultation with Miss R she wondered whether she would have a similar empowering experience. I reassured her that, not only would she have her own individual enriching boudoir session, but that the images captured would be specifically tailored to her and what she wanted to explore about herself through photography.
After her session she added that; “I wanted to try and step outside my own boundaries and see myself in a different way. Daphne, you said there would be a paradigm shift and I didn’t understand that until now. I didn’t expect to have that kind of shift, I thought it would be a cool experience but I didn’t expect the energy and playfulness. You may not think that you’re beautiful or attractive but this experience lifts away the hesitation so you can feel comfortable in your own skin.”
