Body positive is a phrase that is charged with a lot of emotion. In today’s world, the pressure to look a certain way can be overwhelming, and many people struggle with body image issues. However, body-positive photography is a growing trend that celebrates all body types and promotes self-love and acceptance. In this blog post, we’ll explore the concept of body-positive photography and its benefits.

What is Body-Positive Photography?

Body-positive photography is photography that focuses on capturing people of all shapes, sizes, and colors in a positive light. It’s a movement that challenges traditional beauty standards and encourages people to embrace their bodies and celebrate their uniqueness. The goal of body-positive photography is to promote self-love, body acceptance, and confidence in oneself.

Why Beauty and Boudoir Photography Matters

Body-positive photography is more than just taking pictures of diverse people. It’s a way of challenging the unrealistic and harmful beauty standards that are perpetuated in media and advertising. It’s about creating a space where people can feel seen, accepted, and celebrated for who they are. Professional photography that focuses on promoting body diversity and inclusivity, which can have a positive impact on people’s mental health and self-esteem.

It’s very helpful when people can see large companies using photos of models that are diverse in size, shape, and ethnicity. Adore Me is a lingerie and loungewear company who frequently uses models who promote a diverse set of beauty standards and they don’t seem to photoshop their model’s images in an unrealistic way. Seeing professional models with skin folds and cellulite in all sizes and shapes helps spread the message that all bodies are beautiful.

  4. Reduces body shaming: Body-positive photography helps to reduce body shaming by promoting body acceptance and self-love. It sends a message that all bodies are beautiful and worthy of love and respect.

Here’s what one client had to say:

“This experience has boosted my self esteem.. I felt sexy, I felt beautiful, but most importantly I felt worthy of taking a day to myself and enjoying just being ME (not wife, not mom, not nurse, nor any other title I hold). “
