Life happens. You settle into a career. Marriage. Motherhood.
You learn to juggle bills. Responsibilities. Time.
Months, perhaps even years pass…and then one day you look in the mirror.
You realize you have crow’s feet. Jiggly arms. Belly fat.

And There Goes Your Self-Image!
Your solution: Avoid full length mirrors and window reflections. You don’t have time to slow down. Your focus is on how quickly you can slap on makeup and throw an outfit together so you’re not late for work. You give yourself the least amount of self-care as possible because you’re inundated with responsibilities. You have a busy life, but in doing so you’ve sacrificed your self-image.
Add to this the frenzy of Facebook, Instagram and other social media sites where you’re not normal if you’re not posting selfies; Selfies that are taken on camera phones with a mere arms length of distance so they accentuate every single wrinkle, flabby arm, smile line and under eye circle you have. When you look at them, they stick out like a sore thumb, utterly stripping any focus away from your beautiful eyes or high cheek bones.
And There Goes Your Confidence!
It’s no wonder your self-image has taken a vacation. As long as you don’t think about it, it won’t harm you…but it actually does. The damage sneaks up on you gradually.
You dread seeing yourself in the mirror. You begin doubting your capabilities when it comes to things you’ve done your whole life. Your happiness doesn’t seem to dominate your personality. This is your subconscious at work.
You begin thinking things like: “I’ll be more outgoing after I lose these extra ten pounds.” Or: “If I didn’t have these smile lines I could smile more”. These tiny thoughts seep deep into your subconscious mind and tell your brain things like “You’re not good enough” or “You’re getting old”. Pretty soon, your entire self-esteem is ripped to shreds because your programming (your thoughts) are all negative.
Reclaim Your Beauty!
Your focus was on life, work and family for so long. You became so busy you stopped seeing your true beauty. It really is there, but you have to awaken your subconscious to recognize it again because its programmed to block it out.
Book a boudoir shoot! It focuses on your beauty, not your flaws. At most places, when you book a shoot, their professionals will help you choose outfits that compliment your body type. Their makeup artists will know the colors and shades that bring out your eyes or highlight your cheekbones.
Boudoir shoots literally alter the focus so that it accentuates your beauty and then captures it with a snapshot that lasts forever. This way, when you’re slapping on makeup and throwing an outfit together for work, when you glance at this photo, instead of seeing your tiny wrinkles or your flabby arms, you stimulate your subconscious every single day with your true beauty.
From then on, when your thoughts navigate toward thoughts of “Wait until I lose 10 pounds” or “I’m not good enough”, you can stop them dead in their tracks and look at or think of your boudoir photos. That one picture in your mind’s eye is food for your subconscious.
The way you see yourself in your mind eventually drops into your heart and really, truly does become your reality. This is the quickest way to boost your self-esteem and reclaim your beauty right now. Contact our team today and we’ll give you everything you need to improve your self-image.
