Pear, banana or apple – seriously, you would be forgiven for thinking that I am talking about your 5 a day! No, I am talking about body shapes. There are many variations of the same type and unfortunately, they all perpetuate the false idea that there’s an “ideal” or “most desirable” body type. Do you know your body shape? Do you actually care? Trends can change so quickly so what happens when one year your trendy body shape becomes ‘passé’?
The “perfect” female (and male) body has greatly changed over the years, even though the foundation of the female form has stayed the same. When I look at Marilyn Monroe who was the sex symbol of the 50s, she would be considered size plus now and would have to fight really hard to get to a front page of a magazine nowadays. And probably, with Marilyn on the cover, it would be global news as ‘cutting edge’.
The good news is that when you book a photo session with us, Martin’s camera lens does not care about your body shape! In fact, the camera is there, literally focused, on your beauty, your personality, your smile. The most important part of the boudoir photo shoot is having fun and letting go of the idea of ‘perfect’ that we see in the magazines. Forget about your insecurities and what type of fruit your body shape is. This is your time and it is for you to shine.
All the trends, they come and go. What matters is how you feel about yourself which can be captured in a beautiful set of pictures that will always bring a smile on our face. Imagine your granddaughter looking at your photos in years to come, having a conversation about what the beauty trends ‘back in the day’. She would think: ‘ my gradma rocked!’
Perhaps we will see you soon in our boudoir Exeter based studio to show you how beautiful you really are, regardless of your shape!
