A boudoir session like Lori’s is the epitome of why I became a boudoir photographer. I love celebrating marriages and anniversaries but when women come into my studio to celebrate themselves – it hits different. When Lori booked her session she was so nervous but also anxiously excited. Let’s take a look at Lori, an Ovarian Cancer Warrior.
Lori had a hard time accepting her body post-surgery. It was 10 days after her ovarian cancer debulking surgery before she even looked at the scar. She decided to book a boudoir session to ‘see [herself] through different eyes.’ She beat cancer. Having that perspective shift allowed her to realize that her body is magic. Our glam team helped her ease into her session and by the end, she was feeling like a ‘YASSS QUEEN!’
It helped her appreciate the strength her body had after battling such a devastating diagnosis.
When she experienced her boudoir session she felt strong. When she looked at her images she could see the strength, beauty, and power she possessed – scar and all. She battles the mental impact the diagnosis and surgery had on her daily. There is so much fear in the ‘what ifs’ but when she looks at these images they
‘remind me that I’m ok – more than ok in fact. If I can sit in my fear, I can sit in my strength.’Lori
Lori is an incredible example of booking a boudoir session for yourself. There is a beautiful shift when a client sees themselves for the beautiful warrior they are. When they acknowledge their strength and magic, as Lori calls it, and steps into the freedom and power it gives them. Lori is an Ovarian Cancer Warrior but she is also a beautiful, vibrant woman with a lifetime to celebrate because of the scar that saved her life.
