Boudoir photography in the words of Colorado Boudoir Photographer Lea Flores is a life-changing event for many people. The amount of feedback that Lea has gotten over the course of her 15-year career has made her so much more than a philosopher on the subject. This intimate portraiture enables a man or woman to accept their physicality and find their inner strength. Many people discover that they feel powerful and confident in themselves in a manner that they have never felt before by being in front of the camera and being filmed in a way that highlights their beauty and strength. Boudoir photography is an effective means of self-expression and empowerment. People are able to access their inner strength and confidence in a way that enables them to reclaim their authority and embrace their story by embracing their sensuality, beauty, and individuality.
Men and women alike who choose to do a boudoir shoot, do so for a variety of reasons. Some do it to honor a significant occasion or accomplishment, while others might do it as a present for a loved one. Some people might just do it to feel good about their bodies and themselves or to overcome some type of trauma that has occurred in their life. For those who may have had trauma, body shaming, or other bad events connected to their bodies or outward appearance, boudoir photography is a very healing experience.
People may move over any negative self-talk or limiting views they might have about their bodies by being in a secure and encouraging setting where they feel seen, heard, and validated. Lea says, Boudoir photography gives people the freedom to defy conventional standards and ideals of beauty and body image, which is one of its most liberating features. Many individuals believe that in order to be considered beautiful or appealing, they must fit into a certain mold. Boudoir photography defies this idea by valuing variation and originality. Each person is able to redefine what beauty means to them and embrace their distinctive features through this intimate session. It gives people a chance to retake their authority and control over their own narrative.
Whatever the motivation, boudoir photography gives people a chance to take charge of their story and show themselves in a way that makes them feel confident, and at ease with no inhibitions. Lea has created a safe place in her Colorado Boudoir Studio for individuals to embrace their individual beauty and sensuality and see themselves in a new way.
