How to be Curvy and Confident!
It’s all about loving the skin you’re in.
Here are some of our gorgeous Clients who have rocked their curves…
More and more, people are talking about, and paying attention to, body image, self-esteem, and confidence. Women of all sizes are learning to embrace the bodies they were issued at birth, instead of trying to turn into what society deems as ‘beautiful’.
If you think thin is in, think again. There’s a whole movement towards being an independent and strong woman who is curvy and confident and feeling great about the skin that you’re in! While the average size in England is a size 16, most brands and designers are still catering to size 4. Until now.
As a woman, being able to wear the trousers (or a fierce skirt) in today’s society is becoming a strong focus finally and it’s definitely about time! As a curvy AND confident woman, we should be able to highlight and accentuate our curves and spread as much empowerment to our sisters. Confidence allows us to step forward into society and challenge the stigmas and stereotypes that hinder us.
Here are some of the fabulous women I’ve been lucky enough to photograph, and a bit more about their stories…
This is Cat, who has always had an issue with her weight and has been on a diet most of her life. She wanted to do a boudoir shoot because this is one of the steps she wanted to take to learn to love her body and yes she is curvy, but all about building her own body confidence. Cat got involved with ‘the Body Positive Movement’, which teaches people how to overcome conflicts with their bodies so they can lead happier, more productive lives.
“DURING YOUR SHOOT JUST REMEMBER TO GO WITH IT AND HAVE FUN! NO ONE BUT YOU AND GINNY KNOW WHAT IS TAKING PLACE IN THAT ROOM AND NO ONE HAS TO SEE THE IMAGES BUT YOU. I HAVE NO REGRETS!”
Take a look at Maureen – she is all about being curvy and confident. I still can’t believe she’s 51 and a size 18 – doesn’t she look absolutely amazing!!! She wanted to prove to her partner that she still “had it” and wasn’t too old to do an empowering photo shoot. She certainly showed him!!
“I FELT AT EASE, YOU MADE ME FEEL CONFIDENT SEXY AND GLAMOROUS.”
CB’s a gorgeous, curvy and confident sexy lady and it just goes to show that you can be any age, shape or size and there are different ways of posing to flatter any figure.
“IT’S A GREAT WAY TO LET GO AND FEEL DIFFERENT FROM YOUR EVERYDAY SELF – IT’S NOT EVERYDAY YOU GET HAVE YOUR MAKEUP AND HAIR DONE AND HAVE GREAT PHOTOS TO SHOW IT OFF!”
What to do next…
A Boudoir photoshoot can really boost your confidence! Especially if you’ve been going through a tough time… It can be a nice treat and reward for yourself if you’ve reached a goal. I want to say how THANKFUL, I am to these amazing, strong women who have shared their stories with me and let me share them with you!
If you’re in need a bit of pampering then get in touch for more info and to check availability! If you’ve got a special occasion in mind, make sure you book well in advance, as it usually takes 4-8 weeks from shoot to finished product.
Please get in touch HERE. I’m always happy to talk Boudoir!
