For many, many years of my life I struggled with an eating disorder. My eating disorder told me that I was ugly and worthless, and ultimately stole the joy from my life. It was a dark season, so trust me when I say I get what it’s like to feel like your body isn’t good enough, isn’t worthy of love, or feel like your body doesn’t even belong to you.
Now that I’m five years recovered from my eating disorder, I have experienced the liberating freedom that comes from accepting myself fully. It’s opened me up to so much love and joy in the world.
One of my favorite memories is sitting in a villa window in the south of France completely naked, being photographed by a dear friend. When she took my picture she said, “This is for you, so you will always remember how brave you are.”
It is an honor to witness women and femmes experience their beauty and power in a transformative and empowering way. I hope you allow boudoir to become part of your story of healing, reclaiming, and thriving. So scoot a little bit outside your comfort zone and join me!
