Today we’re excited to share a session that looks pretty different from what we usually feature on Boudoir Collective. One of our favorite parts of creating this space has been showcasing the diversity of bodies, lifestyles and viewpoints that boudoir celebrates. Paula of Soft Elegance Photography submitted this session not only to share these gorgeous images but also to introduce you to one of her most passionate clients. We hope you’ll be inspired her amazing message!
“Please, allow me to introduce to you, Nerissa. She has been one of the most positive people I have ever met in my 28 years of life; this I can say in all seriousness. A constant beacon for the empowerment of women and a true cheerleader, she's contributed a great deal to our community of women. Here is just a little bit about her, in her own words…”
For introduction, my name is Nerissa yet I go by the chosen name The Beloved Queen. I never knew I was royalty. It took decades to understand the power of a woman's worth and the power of self love. Now, I promote it.
Ignore what society has deemed sexy. Treat yourself like royalty and only accept the like treatment in return. Remove all negativity in your life and see how positive you can live. I'd rather venture positively happy alone then to be held captive by a negative world.
Pursue your dreams seriously. Watch, listen and observe the hate of the world. Haters. Embrace the misery of the world and take heed to their lessons, do not fall into it's depressions. Wisdom comes from experience, whether it's yours or theirs. Refuse to sink in the world’s standards and drown in their misery, stand confident on the cusp of your own ship and rip the sails of a bigger ocean.
It's not what you walk away from it's what you walk away with. So maximize every opportunity to live fully in the moment. Set goals, demolish them. See your future, make it your future. Say I am a Queen, now become one.
