From the Client:
It’s refreshing to our souls to step away from the relentless “I’m not enough” narrative. We recede into ourselves, promising we’ll step out once we’ve met some obscure criteria. It feels impossible to look at ourselves and be in awe; to see the gorgeous details of our being. Boudoir seems like an extraordinary feat reserved for women who are not us. I’ve fluctuated in weight over an 80-pound range, birthed a baby, breastfed that baby for over 2 years, lived a life that’s given me scars and discolorations. I am like every woman, and I am unlike any woman. Boudoir strips those layers of insecurities, and shows that there is immense beauty in vulnerability.
