When it came to booking her BoldHER portraits, Sabrina said the main reason she inquired was she wanted to regain her confidence.
She had quit smoking not too long ago (Wahoo!) but unfortunately had gained about 60 lbs as an effect of that habit change. But Sabrina wasn’t going to let those 60 lbs stay put, and started on a fitness journey to drop those unwanted pounds. By the time we’d met, she was back down 16 lbs and has just gotten back from her honeymoon and had started to realize that she was finally feeling a bit more comfortable in front of the camera again and this experience was perfect for her to explore that confidence even more!
What is a BoldHER portrait experience you may ask?
While I absolutely LOVE doing boudoir sessions, something that came up every once in a while over the years when I told women about what I did for a living, is they’d react with how cool that was + that they wished they had the courage to do a session, but they just weren’t sure if they were ready to do one quite yet. So that sparked an idea in my head to create the BoldHER portrait experience. I wanted to create a portrait experience that helped women embrace their uniqueness and proudly share who they are, without necessarily getting down to their skivvies. It’s a portrait session OF you FOR you (not like your typical headshot which tends to be about creating images for another person such as for work or a dating website.) These uplifting lifestyle portraits are all about embracing what makes you, YOU. It’s about you being willing to share your unique quirks with the world + embracing it as your superpower so you can reclaim your inner strength and thrive as the woman you are. Sound like fun? It did for Leanne!
Sabrina’s self-confidence journey with her BoldHER portraits.
Sabrina was wanting to embrace some of her newfound confidence after making the commitment to lose the extra weight she’d gained. She may be curvier than she once was but she was learning to see herself as beautiful both inside and out and having a portrait session that was all about embracing her personality, her unique characteristics was exactly what she needed! Here’s what she had to say about her experience:
“Doing this BoldHer photo shoot was an experience I’d recommend to any woman who is looking to remind herself of how beautiful she is and how amazing it is to feel confident in yourself. This is what it did for me. It was fun and built up my confidence and self-esteem. Tami did an amazing job at making me feel comfortable and made the whole thing feel so natural.”
Here are some of my favorites from her session. Enjoy!
