A Fempowerment Party – Body Positive Boudoir Photography, Buffalo NY
“It’s unfair for us to assume that people know how to love themselves … [corporations have] spent decades telling people they weren’t good enough and selling them an ideal of beauty. All of a sudden you’re selling them self-love? People don’t know how to love themselves, because they were trying to look like the motherfucker you were selling them!”
– The queen herself, Lizzo
There’s nothing better than that group of humans that fiercely loves you, cheers you on, and catches you when you occasionally fall on your ass, right? You know the ones — they are the group text that you hit first when you’re having a bad day. They are your own personal Lizzos to back you up when things get tough. Now, imagine a room full of them dancing around in underwear to your favorite music and telling you how much of a queen you are. Sounds awesome, doesn’t it?
That’s exactly what a fempowerment party is. We dance around to your favorite playlist that makes you feel like a goddess, while your BFF’s cheer you on during your mini boudoir session. It helps make what can be an intimidating experience (I have to be in underwear in front of a camera?!) that much more fun. Plus, it’s a great day to celebrate with your favorite humans.
Meg wanted to do exactly that, love on her favorite womxn for an afternoon. They laughed, they danced, they cheered so loud that the studio neighbors asked if we were okay afterward. They came in a little nervous (totally normal, literally everyone is) and left after some serious bravery. It could not have been a better afternoon spent with better people.
Cheers y’all, you are good as hell.
