Please Don’t Apologise For Your Body

Today I have a request,

please stop apologising about your body.

It doesn't matter if you have stretch marks, scars, you're 'plus size', or any other reason you can come up with as to why you shouldn't have a boudoir portrait session.

The only thing preventing you from having gorgeous photos of yourself, are those thoughts you have. 

None of those things matter to us or will change what we are trying to do for you in any way. You are you, and we wouldn't change that for anything.


You do not need to explain that you've had kids or that you've had this surgery, and that your body therefore isn't perfect.

Nobody's body is perfect, and imperfections do not need a reason, they don't need an excuse.

You don't need to excuse away your stretch marks or any scars or your sagging stomach. These are all natural things, they may not seem natural (especially after surgery), that might not be how you think your body should look, but it's all just a part of how our bodies are. They change over time. We don't necessarily like those changes but please don't think that we, as a company, are going to judge you for how your body is.

What we do here is no more based on your size or how you look than anything like going for along for a manicure. There's no mould that you need to fit into for it to be ok for you to come along and do this. Not from our point of view.

Our job is to create images of you that you will absolutely love, we're saying we'll do it, we're saying that's what we're gonna do so it's down to us to do it. You don't need to try and find reasons why we can't do it, there aren't any reasons. You can do it. You are good enough exactly as you are, right now. There's nothing about you that you need to change to make this work for you, so please don't feel like you've got to excuse anything about yourself. You absolutely haven't.

We believe that, we believe that you're gonna look amazing in your photos,

we just want you to believe it too.

Much love,
