Portland Boudoir Photography: Being You

Maybe it's too late to talk about resolutions... or maybe it's the perfect time, depending on who is reading. Did you pledge to get in shape? Did you pledge to eat less sugar? Be more creative? Drive less? Bike more? Did you pledge to stay true to yourself? 

We live in a world centered by change. Don't get me wrong, change is GOOD. Change is wonderful and fresh and amazing. Change can be healthy and necessary. Although, there is also fake change; something less genuine, disguised as something helpful. If there is one resolution I hope you keep year after year, it is being yourself. 

So here we are, another week, another boudoir session. These are quickly becoming my favorite! With boudoir, there is no hiding, and there is no shame. You are you. Maybe you kept your 'stay healthy' resolution, and maybe you didn't. Either way, you are still the same woman. The same personality. Whether introverted or extroverted, you show up being you. Boudoir is come as you are, not as you want to be. Not as she is. Not as they are. You are you. I am proud to live in a time where more and more publications are unaltered, unedited, photoshop-free. There is no standard for boudoir, there is no size, style, type of woman. YOU ARE YOU!

There are days where you might not be happy with you. With what you look like, what you wore, maybe what you said. If you haven't had those days, how dare you!

But when you have those days, you need to remind yourself you are worthy of love.

Remember how you felt on your best days.

Remember that you are so beautiful.

And if you need that reminder, find that love in boudoir.
