03 Jun She Hated Her Mom Boobs ~ Winnipeg Boudoir Photography
Where do I even begin with this gorgeous woman??? Ms. N is one of the most glorious souls I have ever met and I had the pleasure of meeting her through photography. Last year we met at Camp Do More (she owns Noel Cosgrove Intimates) and I was told to give her a little pep talk before she modeled for a bunch of other photographers. After I saw this vixen I KNEW I needed her to model THIS year for my workshops at Camp Do More, so I reached out to her and she hesitated, but said yes. Well, when my husband I took our roadtrip to Seattle, I also arranged a little shoot out get together with my photographer friend Jessica Rae and Ms. N flew out to join us in the fun! At the end of shooting the gorgeous Georjah, Miss N got down to her skivvies so we could have a practice run BEFORE camp! I fucking love shooting other boudoir photographers because they a)tend to be more nervous than regular clients and b)know what we look for in terms of lighting, posing, and expressions. Miss N was no different, but within 20 minutes she was nudie and getting her Tough Love Teri talk. I am going to let her tell you the rest, but I just have to say that I am incredibly proud of this babe and I truly hope she knows just how strong, fierce and fiery she is! AND I can’t wait to see her in just a weeeeeek!!
Leading up to my time with Teri I had been equally as excited and nervous to be vulnerable in front of her. Unlike others I already knew she wouldn’t tune out my verbalized negativity about my body, but attack it head on. She asked me why I hated my ‘mom boobs’ and I’ve since realized there is an explanation as to why I didn’t have enough reasons to verbalize. Of all the pep talks I give women about the the miraculous things they can do, My body has carried me through abuse, dietary issues, pregnancies, surgeries, it’s done CPR to try to save a life, it takes boy scouts tenting in -25, leads baseball teams in the summer, and helps me run a business. Why is this body worth less than the women who stand in front of me? If I put a mirror between us why would my feelings change about the woman I’m now looking at? Why do I not love myself from under my chin, the left side of my face, or naked? These are the things I have been asking myself since my session. These questions are keeping me moving forward in my journey because in my heart I know it’s ridiculous so I have to keep trying to change my head. When I look at theses amazing images, some of which I love a little less than most, I keep reminding myself I am not that angle, that doesn’t define a beautiful person. I am so happy about this experience with Teri and the steps forward, that she’s made possible, in my love for my body.
Are you wanting to change they way you see your body? The way you talk to her? The way you despise her for everything she can’t do, instead of loving her for everything she can? If so, then let me help you! Hit me up with an email to get this self love party started!
