The easiest way to explain why I think YOU should do a boudoir shoot is by spilling the beans on why I did (those pictures, yeah that’s me).
The first boudoir shoot I ever booked, didn’t work out. Not a great experience. The stars did not align for me. I destroyed myself mentally and physically leading up to it. I didn’t feel comfortable in my skin. I did some serious damage to my body by doing a week on, week off of binge eating and dangerous diet fads.
Desperate to “fix” myself before my shoot.
Then I let a year pass, gave up on the idea and focused on my own boudoir clients instead. Filling everyone’s cup around me. Showing every woman I worked with how beautiful they were authentically .. without “fixing” this or “fixing” that. I wanted them to see how gorgeous they were in their own skin. Fuck what society said was beautiful .. THEY WERE BEAUTIFUL BECAUSE THEY WERE THEM. Ya know I mean?
But you know .. all boudoir photographers hit a point in their career where we have to look within ourselves and say “Hey, you talk a lot of shit .. but can YOU walk the walk and talk the talk?” So I did.
I booked a shoot with Karla Mason Photography and I was on a mission to get through this as myself, me, Megan. All 200+ lbs of beautiful, authentic ME. I did not change a damn thing about myself. Well .. maybe my bank account. Ya girl over bought for her shoot (spoiler alert: it wasn’t worth it. LESS IS MORE!)
I booked my boudoir shoot because I wanted to really face myself and accept who I was and what I looked like. I wanted to see me for the first time in my life and love what I saw. Not a selfie of me. Not a distorted snap chat filter front facing camera bullshit version of who I wanted to look like .. but just me. And that’s what happened and I’m forever thankful for that experience. And that’s why I’m here. To gift you that the way I had that gifted to me.
