Acts of Acceptance and Self Love | Oklahoma Boudoir

The moment Ms. C walked into our studio I fell in love with her and her spirit. She, on the other-hand, was nervous and very open about all of her insecurities. I was immediately drawn to her face and a certain connection in her eyes. I just couldn't see any of the things that were causing her so much self-doubt. Once we got into hair and make-up I quickly learned we had a very big thing in common. We were both single mothers. Not just single parents, but the only parent. I know what kind of struggle that is and know that it can also add to a loss in your self-esteem. Ms. C had triumphed over many hurdles before she came to see me, but one of the biggest was lying ahead. Was she capable of looking and feeling beautiful? Would she love her images? Or would she fall back into the comfortable yet painful state of self-doubt. Below you will get to hear how the experience was for her and how she felt about her images.


I signed up for the session on a last minute impulse, out of desperation to find anything to latch on to that could help pull me out of the emotional difficulties I was having. I feared that it wouldn’t give me the results I was looking for, to be able to feel and see that there is some beauty left to me and that instead, it would just prove to me all the things that I’ve been told I am, and that I believed I was.
My fear did not come true, the experience itself was amazing, I had never felt so uplifted or encouraged to embrace who I am physically and emotionally. That day, during my first photo shoot was the first time I had felt completely at peace in many years. I left feeling great, not knowing what my pictures would look like and not caring at that moment because I just wanted to enjoy the state of happiness and acceptance I had received from Christie and her coworkers. My confidence that day was through the roof!!!

It was the emotional response I got during the posing and photo shoot. She makes it so easy for you to be comfortable and not worry about if you’re doing it right or not. For the first time in a long time I actually felt beautiful, sexy and at peace. I didn’t have the self-hatred for myself bouncing around my head, not once did I think about my past and the reasons why I was damaged. I didn’t think about stresses of work, home or in my life in general. I didn’t care that I wasn’t the size society tells us we should be, I felt amazingly beautiful and at that moment no one could have brought me down. I had forgotten how to love myself, or what loving yourself and being at peace really felt like and thanks to Christie and the other amazing girls I have finally started to mend what’s been broken for so long.

When I received my first photos, I immediately started what I always would and instead of looking at the whole picture, I sat there and cried because I only saw the hatred and disgust I had for myself. I wouldn’t allow myself to believe that I could ever be beautiful because of how I’ve always been told differently. Until I showed the pictures to the select few who knew I was going to do the shoot. All of them were telling me how amazing the pictures were and how beautiful I was, and how I needed to stop searching for things to obsess over and just look at the WHOLE picture, to look at all of me. Every day for a week I would pull up one of my photos and just sit in front of my computer and stare at it determined to see myself differently. Each day the urge to pick myself apart got a little easier and easier until I finally could just look at the image without wanting to cry.

ANNNNNNNNND I was blown away….I couldn’t believe that the images I was looking at were the same ones I had looked at every day for a week, or that is was me. I saw myself in the way that others had, and damnit I deserved too feel good about myself for once. Christy gave me back a part of myself that I will forever be thankful for. She not only allows us to see how beautiful and sexy we all can be but she helps us to realize that we are ALL beautiful. No matter what size or shape we are and that’s something a lot of us forget about ourselves.

This experience is something that every woman should try, even if you aren’t seeking them for help to love yourself again, or have a significant other to take them for. Just do it for yourself, we all need reminders of how beautiful we are, and how others really see us. Christie has an amazing gift, the photos she takes are absolutely breathtaking. Not only that she makes the whole session comfortable and guides you through every step of the way.

Not only do you get to see yourself for how gorgeous you really are, but you get to meet some of the most caring, uplifting and just hands down amazing women during your experience with Christie and her co workers.
