This gorgeous babe rocked her session with so much confidence. And clearly her beautiful personality shines through her images. I was so lucky to photograph this inspiring woman and I wanted to share her experience she had written. Thank you so much for writing this and hoping it will inspire a lot of women!
"To all my fellow beautifully imperfect ladies and gentlemen - I had the absolute pleasure of working with Pamela and Ivory State Hair and Makeup on a very special shoot, where not only did I get to feel extremely sexy and glamours but where I got the flaunt and showcase being perfectly imperfect.
At 4 years of age I sustained 3rd degree burns to 40% of my body. 83 surgeries, fully skin grafted and countless days/months in hospital, I am now 100% limited edition with my scars and I wouldn't change a thing.
I see our skin as a canvas throughout our lives, collecting detailed pieces of unique art for a story to come together after many years. Sure, we may have a few imperfections on the base to start of with, a couple of brush marks that appear throughout but at the end of the day no people have a single mark that is the same and to me that is something spectacular and beautiful.
So no matter what shape, size, scars or not, each and everyone of us deserves to feel strong, proud and confident" - Britt
So I had the spontaneous idea to go behind the camera for once. I was doing a boudoir session for a friend so I just asked if she would want to take some of me!
Not really prepared…no make up and hair done (at least it was washed!) and I had 1 bodysuit and a jumper with me at the time and borrowed my friends heels, but that's all I needed!
So glad I did this…as a mum I don’t always feel sexy anymore, being tired and busy trying to do a million things at the same time, taking care of yourself is last priority sometimes.
Doing this photo session was so much fun, liberating and empowering and I keep looking back at my photos thinking ‘wow cant believe that’s me’ and ‘my legs look pretty good!’ haha.
I made me feel great! So great that I didn’t even care about my parking fine of $561
I got after the shoot (true story) ……ok I might have let out a couple of swear words..
And it made me even feel better because this is why I am doing this, making other woman feel good about themselves! I want them to look at their photos thinking ‘Yeah I am beautiful/sexy/hot!’.
If you ever think of doing anything like this all I can say is just do it. You won’t regret it!
I understand you might be a bit nervous, but we will put some music on and have a laugh at the silly poses together and it will be a fun day. And you will walk away with some amazing photos of yourself which you will be able to look back at in 30 / 40 /50 years to come with a big smile on your face and glad you did it!
Here a few images of my quick session I wanted to share (some images only for my man to see ;) )and I will definitely have another one done (with make up and hair)! One thing about doing a boudoir session, it’s addictive haha. You will want to do it again!
Last week I had a ball! For 4 days I had a stall at Sexpo Australia at the International Convention Centre in Sydney and what an amazing experience. It was so lovely meeting all these gorgeous woman interested in doing a Boudoir photo session! And as well meeting some very talented fellow photographers.
Again thank you all for visiting my stall and hopefully I will be able to take some beautiful photos of you one day.
