I Can’t Stop Thinking That I am Fat

I don’t know that there’s been a day that’s gone by in my life where I didn’t have a negative thought about my body.

I’m fat.

I hate my arms.

Delete that picture I have a double chin.

I could keep going forever…

I had no idea that 90% of all women think the exact same way that I do about their own bodies… until I became a Boudoir Photographer.

I was so confused the day that I was shooting one of my very first boudoir clients (who I would kill to look like) and she asked me not to photograph her “fat rolls“. I couldn’t believe what she had just said.  Did she really think she was fat? How?!

It really only took a few clients for me to see that I was not alone in this incredibly exhausting emotional roller coaster of body image issues.

Being a Boudoir Photographer has opened my eyes to my own insecurities, to address those (bullshit) insecurities, and allow my husband to hug me and not worry about my fat. To allow my husband to call me beautiful and not replying with “omg stop”, “yea right”, “ugh”. For 35+ years I have been beating myself up. Not another day. It’s time to stop.

When you have a boudoir session my hope is that you not only leave with beautiful images of yourself to remind you just how gorgeous you are but also to KNOW you are enough.

Do me a favor: make it a habit to look in the mirror every morning and tell yourself 3 positive things about your body. It feels awkward at first, but I promise you that over time it’ll become your truth.

Cheers too embracing and loving who you are RIGHT NOW!! ❤️❤️
