3 Affirmations to say before you’re shoot

The lead up to the session is the hardest part. Be that planning wardrobe, learning about the session experience, or feeling confident to do the session itself. Today I wanted to go over 3 affirmations to say before you come in for your session. These are so important 💕

First, congratulations on booking your session! I am so excited for you! These sessions are super empowering and 100 percent are healing  experience 💕

Whether you’ve booked a portrait or boudoir session, I really wanted to stress the importance of being kind to yourself. I hear a lot of clients beating themselves up beforehand and I’ve been there myself as well so let’s go over the first affirmation:

• I am worthy of being documented.

No matter where you are in life, how you look or feel, you are worthy. It doesn’t even matter if you’re getting your picture taken – you are worthy no matter what! This is a judgement-free zone and all I really want you to do is to come in and have this experience and to have proof that you are absolutely fabulous the way you are… right now! Seriously you are worthy and beautiful, I use these one daily as I found it hard to love myself after my two kids and after repeating this daily, it really helps you feel amazing 💕

• I will be kind and have patience with myself.

Please, please, please do not get frustrated with yourself during this process. It is so easy to pick ourselves apart, wish we looked a certain way, etc. But let me tell you that being exactly who you are makes you unique and you will 100% stand out and rock your session. Patience is key with yourself, and you will definitely gain so much patience from these sessions. 

• My mind is open to new and exciting things.

Most clients that come in for any type of session have never or rarely been in front of the camera before. It might seem like an intimidating experience but come in with an open mind and we will have so much fun! I will be there the entire way to help out with posing, picking wardrobe, and making sure everything is as stress-free as possible. I will even help you out by giving you a boudior guide before you’re session, give you tips to help you feel comfortable and I will make you laugh and smile the whole time. 

These affirmations are so important and I want you to say they daily, even after you’re session. These will help you feel confident and amazing always ❤
