Caution. Caution. Boudoir. Caution. Caution
.Beauty. Empowerment. Support. Love. Confidence.
Some people hear the word boudoir and either think it is something dirty and shameful, or they have no idea what it is at all. I am here to tell you what it really is and why it is so important to us at MWP.
The word boudoir (bo͞oˌdwär) literally means a woman's bedroom or private room. Boudoir photography is just that, photography taken in a woman's bedroom or private room (aka a beautiful studio or room!). These photographs and the entire experience are not meant to be trashy or classless. It is meant to give women a safe place to feel and capture their inner and outer beauty, to feel sexy and confident in a world which constantly shoves unrealistic body types and goals down our throats.
Although this experience can be for a gift for a partner, this truly should be an experience about you, a gift to yourself. You addressing, identifying, and reveling in your own beauty. Now all of you out there who think this isn't for you, but you have a partner who deserves a day of relaxation and beauty discovery, you can book a gift session for them as well, boudoir sessions can be the best Christmas presents!
MWP has dabbled in boudoir photography, for clients who have requested it, but empowering women and helping them see their own beauty is something we would like to specialize in. So, Jes was able to participate in a workshop, given by Molly Marie Photography, based in Wisconsin. The workshop educated and inspired MWP to serve women of all shapes and sizes as they experience self-love, a very intimate and sensitive moment. Ten women from all around the world came together in a beach house in Playa Del Rey to discuss strategies and practice their photography skills with a first-time boudoir client, not a model. This experience was priceless and so very worth it!
Too often, women feel down and unsure about their bodies. Situations have come up, babies have been had, comments have been made, and social media has been viewed... and it feels like there is no turning back. You wonder if you will ever be happy in your own skin. Well, us ladies need to stick together and we need to be inspired by women who are confident in their own skin. We need to love one another, empower and lift each other up, and share in tiny successes toward our goal of loving our bodies. We have created a Facebook Group for WOMEN ONLY, to do just that. A safe place for us to share boudoir photography (with client approval), boost each others' confidence, share ideas like inspirational quotes, strategies, and flattering posing to feel good in life and memories (selfies, family photos, boudoir, etc.) You will also find special deals and promotions for your very own boudoir session with us in this group.
