It seems that body acceptance is a tough one for most people. My mom used to be a professional model and said that even after hair, make-up, lighting, excellent photography AND photoshop, the girls around her were still able to pick themselves apart at the drop of a hat, which is sad news for us mere mortals.
So, as a pre-birthday gift to myself I decided to get some boudoir shots done. Knowing how difficult it can be to feel comfortable in such situations I turned to the amazing Chelsea Brooke Roisum to take the pictures.
Suman Atlas did my make-up. We gathered inspiration from Marilyn Monroe & Betty Paige and Suman was spot-on with getting the feel of the era just right.
Chelsea and Suman made an excellent team and I could not get over how easy and natural I felt with them.
This is such a great gift to myself and I highly encourage everyone to get out there and get some beautiful photos taken. Not only will the finished product be a great keepsake but it’s also a nice way to pamper yourself.*
