SELF DISCOVERY , SELF AWARENESS AND AN IMPROVED SENSE OF SELF

I wanted to do the shoot as a confidence boost and to mark the closure of a really transformational period of my life. I was a little taken aback – I barely recognised myself but was really pleased that the pictures definitely captured what I had been hoping for from them. It really is worth setting aside the understandable nerves and going for it – the team are wonderful and the results really do speak for themselves

SELF DISCOVERY, SELF AWARENESS AND SELF WORTH

Glam and Boudoir stories are often stories of transformation and self discovery.

Our clients often come to us to rediscover something about themselves that they’ve lost along the way.

Some women tell us they want to lose some weight. Often they put off booking their photoshoot until they reach a particular weight loss goal.

A photoshoot like this shouldn’t be seen as some kind of incentive to lose weight. Rather, a photoshoot like this should be taken at the weight you’re at right now so that you’ll appreciate the amazingly beautiful woman you are right now. This will give you so much more power moving forward.

You see, we gain weight for so many different reasons. Maybe after children, the Mummy Tummy refuses to go away. Maybe it’s years of bad eating habits because of being stuck in an unhealthy regime. Maybe it’s a breakup, loss of a loved one or even giving up smoking which has led to the fridge. Perhaps it’s just the simple process of getting older. What we’ve noticed over the years is that the process of losing weight doesn’t make you happy. What makes you happy is learning to love yourself. Not just your curves but the person you are inside.

Honestly, we can say, hand on heart, the people we find with the most insecurities in life are the stick-thin supermodel types. They look in the mirror and criticise every small part of themselves. Nothing is ever right for them. It’s rare to find a ‘body dysmorphic’ person come to us who looks anything other than amazing. Body dysmorphia, Anorexia and a range of body issues may manifest themselves as physical. The way someone looks. Really though, these are entirely mental issues. Our brains messing with us. You see, it’s really not the dieting which will make us feel good but the way we see ourselves. The way we love ourselves. Our own feeling of self-worth.

A photoshoot experience such as ours is really part of the journey of self-discovery.

Rather than try to lose weight, we suggest trying to discover why you’re not happy with your weight in the first place. What got you to this place you’re at now. Find that out and you’ll be closer to being able to fix it. This is the journey to self-awareness.

Maybe your boss always puts you down and tells you how poor your work is. Maybe your partner never says “I love you” or maybe you’ve just been through a difficult breakup and feel a failure and totally worthless. A photoshoot experience such as ours will do wonders to help rebuild your self-esteem and every time you look at your pictures, will remind you of your self-worth.

This is why these experiences are so empowering.

We photograph your strengths and show them to you through our non-judgmental eyes. You then use this empowerment to release your own personal power.

Self discovery leads to Self-awareness and this leads to increased self worth.

Invest in a powerful way of showing your pictures off which will last for decades, such as a beautiful book or large piece of wall art and this feeling of self worth will build everytime you look at your pictures.

 

Remember – You are a Diamond!
