Boudoir Healing Journey: Reclaiming Blue
Trigger Warning: sexual assault
In her early twenties, Ms. E was the victim of a traumatic sexual assault. The colour blue became a symbol of that night, a colour she couldn’t bring herself to wear; she was wearing it the night she was assaulted. Fast forward to her boudoir session with us and a place of healing and self-acceptance, where she decided it was time to reclaim the colour that had haunted her for so long.
“I wanted to do something that would be a fun way to keep healing,” she shared. The idea of a boudoir shoot emerged as a powerful way to redefine her relationship with the colour blue and empower herself through the process.
Facing Fears: Worries and Concerns
“I was worried about how I would look in my photos!” she admitted. It’s a concern many of us share, but for her, it went beyond the usual jitters. The fear of not seeing the healing she longed for and being hyper-aware of her perceived flaws were valid concerns.
But did those fears materialize during the session?
“Not even a little bit,” she exclaimed. I received tons of prep materials beforehand, and Meg and Jen made me feel so comfortable when I arrived. It turns out, anticipation was the only thing worth losing sleep over; the session itself was a whirlwind of fun, sass, and empowerment.
The Dream Team: Consultations, Lingerie Help, Hair and Makeup
“I found the experience was really open and transparent the whole way through. Meg is such a professional. She checks in whenever she senses a change in pace or tempo, and that gave me a lot of confidence and I felt in control the whole time. Jen was a joy to sit for, and she’s a whizz at what she does. She’s a phenomenal artist. I strongly recommend this dream team!
“I feel powerful, and beautiful, and sexy when I look at my photos.” The images are a tangible manifestation of her journey, capturing the strength and confidence she had rediscovered.
And the album? “I was so impressed with the book, I cried. I look stunning!”
A Message to the Hesitant: Research and Revelations
For anyone teetering on the edge of booking a boudoir session, Ms. E has some sage advice: “Do some research!” It’s a simple yet powerful recommendation. In the worst-case scenario, you decide it’s not for you. In the best case, you may unlock a life-changing moment that makes you feel like royalty every time you glance at your images.
