Courage, Dear Heart | Boudoir With Stéphanie Trouvé
Courage. An emotion that we want to see more women embracing when it comes to their body and their self worth. The truth is, this world of ours doesn't always make us feel so accepted as who we are. We have to empower each other to show the world how beautiful we are, just as we are. Inside and out. Here is what Stéphanie from Glam Fairy Photography had to say about this gorgeous session:
In a society where fashion, advertising or celebrities are imposing the cult of a slimmer figure, we as women are fighting with with self-acceptance.
Not easy to accept and love yourself when you see all these (supposed) perfect woman bodies in the magazines or on TV. Let’s talk about weight loss, diet or detox plans. It is obvious they are part of our life and habits. And I guess we would all like to have the same flat belly and booty as Kayla Itsines or Sonia Tlev.
Unfortunately Mother Nature has not given us the same genetic code. Many of us should live with their curves having a complex impact on women. Accept your body, love it, no matter how fashion is made for other body types.
Active woman, entrepreneur or housewife, we are all with our same complexes and fighting them. Accepting yourself means also you put yourself in a better position to begin improving yourself. The boudoir can be a way to achieve this. Being undressed in front of a photographer is not easy and the photographer’s duty is to make the client feel at ease and in confidence.
Gaëlle has experimented a boudoir session at her place. We had mailed quite a lot before the session. Gaëlle was a bit stressed at the begining but it turns out that she was really at ease after a 2 hour session. She has curves, she is beautiful! And herreaction when she at first saw her photos on the gallery. She couldn’t hide her joy and pride. Here is what she wrote to me on Messenger:
« Wouahhh I don’t know what to say to you. This is beautiful…The photos are beautiful. They are amazing what you made with the light and details! It’s stupid to say that, but I find myself beautiful. I do not see my body imperfections but a beautiful woman with curves. Thank you »
