Every few months, I do a live shoot in my VIP group on Facebook (join via the link below!). Once a year, I’ll ask for submissions for ladies who’d like to participate in a live shoot, and I choose someone from those submissions. I typically receive 40-50 applicants for a live shoot. How do I choose? First, I look for someone who has taken the time to answer all my questions and put some thought into what I’m asking. Then, I look at the WHY of their submission for a boudoir session. The why tells me a lot about the woman.
This beauty has been through a lot in the last few years. She’s battled cancer, takes care of her kids, and she told me that she misses herself. Here’s a quote from her application, “I want to do this for a myriad of reasons but most of all because I miss me. I miss the me I was before I was single . I miss the me I was before cancer. I miss the girl who didn’t walk with a limp and strutted her stuff. I miss the me that liked myself. I’m 42 and too young to hate myself every day forever. I’m hoping to remember the sexy woman I used to be 3 teenage children ago.”
I’d say we succeeded big time! She walked away confident. Saw herself in a new way. Reconnected with the woman she “used to be.” Felt alive, powerful, and could conquer the world!
You may be wanting to do a boudoir session for someone else, but ultimately it’s for you. It’s a moment to see yourself the way I see you, to see how others see you. It’s the time to inspire yourself.
