If you asked me if I’d have the confidence to do a boudoir shoot before I’d probably say no way.
But shooting with Ben & Bianca 4 times now has really helped me overcome my fear and my lack of confidence in myself. After long heart to hearts with both of them in person & through texts it has been life changing for me.
The word “sexy” used to make me feel so uncomfortable between my past & always being a curvier female.
As a female who has a hard past of being sexually assaulted & has experienced mental health struggles from early teen years to adulthood, I always had a hard time accepting myself, having all around confidence & wanting to feel sexy.
I felt so comfortable knowing he was seeing Me & not just looking at my body.
Ben really made me feel beautiful & helped me realize I am perfect the way I am. Now I feel so much confidence in myself, which has helped me in so many aspects of life. I feel strong, healthy, empowered & uniquely beautiful. I know with this confidence that I can do anything I set my mind to. Nothing can hold me back anymore!
I was a nervous Wreck meeting Benizo at my first Photo Shoot.
But from his energy, his conversation, and his gifted talent with the camera, he immediately started to leave such a positive mark on me. I remember leaving that shoot feeling my best & continued to feel that way after the next 3 shoots over the course of a few years.
If You are someone who is on the fence of doing a shoot, for whatever reason...
… My best advice is just do it. Try it. To me, these photo shoots aren’t just about taking pretty pictures, it’s a whole experience. A learning experience in so many different aspects, wether it becomes a finding yourself experience, strengthening yourself in confidence & positivity, adding to a portfolio for a career or pageant…you name it, so many doors will open & help uplift you in so many positive ways. Just go in with an open mind, have fun & be yourself.
Feeling Beautiful in your own skin isn't easy, but maybe because there is no depth without resistance.
