All of us, at one point or another, have come across self limiting beliefs. They creep into our lives and make themselves at home, disguised as good reason, caution, and understanding. To make matters worse, many a time, these believes are not even our own! Perhaps some heard from their grandmother that soccer is not a sport for girls while others were told that a career in (insert a field of choice) is a dead end. We probably heard so many of them that, at times, we don’t even realize how a self limiting belief settles into our mind and prevents us from discovering our potential and reaching new horizons! We, at Kissed By Light Studio, come across self limiting beliefs all the time, after all, we work in a subject that is often a taboo in our society to this day – sensuality. Don’t get us wrong, for each subject there is a right place and time, and some people have, perhaps, just never really explored the field yet. But, all too often, we come across beautiful, inspiring women who have a strong self limiting belief that such things as lingerie, heels, and boudoir photography can’t work for them and that they might look silly donning a pair of stockings! It is hard to say how that belief came to be, after all, we all have our own unique story, but there is one thing that we can tell for sure – it is just another self limiting belief, one that we have proven false to hundreds of women over the past 10 years! We often trick ourselves into thinking that in order to look good in lingerie, we should look like a certain type of lingerie model from that advertisement we saw the other day, however, it is the other way around! Lingerie is made to make us look flirty and sensual, it is made to fit our body well and flatter our curves. And so is boudoir photography – every angle we seek, every pose we come up with, every detail serves a purpose in creating a boudoir photo that makes our subject look her most unique, beautiful, and captivating self! So, the next time you catch yourself thinking that boudoir and all its attributes are not for you, ask yourself: “Is it my choice or just a self limiting belief?” You might be surprised by the answer!
Recently, we had a great pleasure creating boudoir looks for a lovely Miss S. An absolute stunner, she looked spectacular in every one of her looks, and we had such a great time putting together set ups to fit her style and personality! In the end, we went with our airy and flirty “cloud” looks, a series of striking red rose looks, and a formal portrait! We hope that you enjoy this photo series!
