The Power of Boudoir Photography: A Conversation with Shelby

Updated: Jun 16


In our latest podcast episode ( Link here ), I had the pleasure of sitting down with Shelby, a dear friend and incredible boudoir photography enthusiast. Our conversation, filled with laughter and heartfelt moments, delved deep into our shared experiences with boudoir photography and the beautiful journey we've taken together.




Embracing Empowerment and Confidence

Throughout our discussion, Shelby and I reflected on the various boudoir sessions we've done together. Each session has been a unique experience, contributing significantly to our personal growth and boosting our confidence. Boudoir photography, as we highlighted, isn't just about capturing beautiful images—it's about empowerment.




The Strength of Friendship

During our discussion, one of the most touching elements was the special bond of friendship that blossomed during the sessions and the value of establishing a rapport with your photographer to enrich the entire experience. I noted that even during challenging times, showing up for these sessions brought a sense of strength and vulnerability: "Sometimes when you've shown up for some of your sessions, you're going through some of the hardest things that you're going through and you still show up." Taking care of herself even in the hard times can be so hard but she showed up for her!

Shelby highlighted that, despite facing difficulties, attending these sessions provided a source of fortitude and perseverance: "At times when you attend your sessions, you may be grappling with some of the toughest challenges, yet you still make the effort to be present."

Looking Ahead: Future Shoots and Embracing Self-Love

We also talked about exciting future shoot ideas, emphasizing the importance of embracing oneself. Boudoir photography is about celebrating who you are, including your insecurities. Shelby encouraged listeners to be open to trying new things, as it can lead to beautiful and confident photos: "Just jump in and do it, because you're going to feel better at the end." Mini sessions and themed shoots, we agreed, are fantastic ways to dip your toes into the world of boudoir photography.
