Wouldn’t you love to value your beauty and identity without feeling insecure? How great would it feel to be free from negative self talk and to really cherish the body you have? Believe me, we all struggle with body positivity at some point or another — no matter how we look or where we come from. I realize that no one is going to feel completely happy with themselves all of the time. It would be nice, however, if when we looked in the mirror, we could love ourselves just a little bit more. So how do we do it?
The interesting thing I’m going to share with you is that for many women intimate photography does the trick. In fact, taking boudoir photos has actually become a therapy session for women who want to feel the sense of well-being that they deserve. Doing a boudoir session allows you to heal low self esteem. It also allows your self acceptance to flourish. The whole experience is really a celebration of who you are. But don’t just take my word for it. Below I’m posting a testimonial from an incredible and beautiful woman who I had the opportunity to photograph recently. Take a look at what she had to say about her boudoir session and how she felt afterwards.

“Working with Evgenia has been a dream. From the beginning, Evgenia made me feel so comfortable and helped to calm all my nerves. I never imagined in my life I would be comfortable and confident enough to do a boudoir shoot. I’ve always struggled with my self image and have never been one to be completely comfortable in my skin – let alone strip down and get professionally photographed. But I am so glad I did because it is a once in a lifetime experience and one of the most fun and empowering of my life. I wanted to be able to give my future husband something extra special that couldn’t be bought at the store and I also wanted to do something to help me feel sexy, confident, and empowered before we got married. As soon as we started, Evgenia made me feel incredibly comfortable and confident and talked me through the entire process. Not once did I feel nervous or self conscious and I found myself really getting into the shoot and was surprised by how fast time went and that I actually wanted to do more! I put all my trust in her and I am so glad I did. The final product was more than I could have ever imagined – I didn’t even recognize myself in the best way possible and I could not stop looking at the photos. Evgenia was able to capture me in the most intimate and beautiful way and I can’t wait to share these with my future husband. I would do it all over again if I could and just might in the future. I’m so proud of myself for completely stepping out of my comfort zone because it was completely worth it. Evgenia has given me more than just beautiful photos, she has given me a boost of self confidence, sexiness, and empowerment – and who doesn’t want to feel that way? Especially before getting married?! I can’t say enough to how amazing this experience was and one that I will never forget and cherish for the rest of my life. I cannot thank Evgenia enough for all that she has given me – she is everything! I mean every single word. You are a dream and I am so grateful to you for giving me this gift.”
As you can see, taking boudoir photos gives so many of us a glimmer of what’s possible when we really learn to love ourselves. And what could be better than that?
