Building Confidence through boudoir photography is about empowering how you view your body. Empowerment is about choice and tapping into your possibilities. Women are bombarded with unrealistic body ideals, which makes it hard not to internalize the idea that we are flawed. Then, our choice is limited to what products to buy to try to become more beautiful to the assumed gaze of others. Or to disconnect and deprioritize our physical self. Boudoir invites you see yourself and your body through a different lens, to expand what you recognize as possible for yourself. There’s a confidence that blooms out of that knowing. It’s why many women do boudoir shoots just for themselves, not only for an intimate partner.
In this episode of the Unlimited podcast I invited Liz Hansen owner of Chicago Boudoir to join me in a conversation around building confidence through a boudoir photoshoot.
Some of what we talk about in this episode includes:
- What is boudoir photography
- Sexualization vs embodiment
- Reclaiming your relationship with your body
- Building a sense of confidence
- The power of owning of your mistakes
- Female empowerment ripple effect
Thank you for listening!
