Recently I had my first Boudoir session with Black Lace and Rami as a Brand Ambassador. Not by any means my first boudoir session that I have had, mind you. This was my third session with this wonderful lady and her fantastic company. I just wanted to make the distinction.
Being a Brand Ambassador means many things to me. It is promoting love of self and acceptance of those around us, in personality and physicality. Helping others to see the value in their lives and opinions, and that no matter what, you are worth everything you get and more. It is helping to show, by photo session, and posts that there is no shame in showing who you are, and being comfortable in your own skin.
This photo session was such a great time! Nicole did my makeup and hair before, so that I felt camera ready. My outfits, of which I brought 6 or so, were picked through, and Rami and I decided on them together. We even looked at the client closet for some ideas, but went with the implied nude look for my last outfit, so all we needed was a sheet ????.
One of the greatest things about a session with Rami is that you can be yourself. I love that we can be real with each other, whether it is figuring out a pose, or laughing about what we did last weekend. The two body suits/negligees we picked had some great poses to work with, and some challenging ones also. The implied nudes were fun, since that was something that I had been wanting to do for a while.
Stepping out of my comfort zone was something that I needed to do to get this done the first time, but that faded fast at her studio. You see, like most women, I have a spot or two on my body that is not my favorite. It is so helpful to see yourself through someone else’s eyes, to see what they see. Your perception of what you look like is colored by your experiences, so a new lens with no past on it, makes all the difference in the world.
The reason for coming back time and time again is the way it makes me feel. After a shoot, I feel more confident in myself and my appearance, inside and out. It lasts for a while, and getting excited about what everything will look like later is the best feeling. I know that working with Rami is one of the most rewarding adventures I have had in my life. The Black Lace Boudoir experience is one worth having (sometimes more than twice). ????
