I made a choice to start loving | Embrace Boudoir, Lake Jackson TX Photography

My name is Sybil, I'm 46 years young! 

My weight has been a struggle for me since I was a teenager. I never felt pretty "enough"! I never was skinny "enough"! Even my skin was not light "enough"! So imagine getting older and never overcoming those limitations put on you by yourself and inadvertently by others. Men would choose the lighter and skinnier girl, the prettier girls by society's standards. It took a lot of prayer, self-help books and B12 to finally start loving myself.

Fast forward twenty plus years, a husband and two girls later, getting older now weighs on me and once again I still doubt my worth. My body still isn't where I'd like it to be and now I have a blooming teenager who may well be getting close to dealing with the same issues I did.

So, I made a choice to start loving myself right where I am today. The boudoir session was a way to see myself as beautiful, worthy and ENOUGH!

Now I choose me over others, and think of myself first. I know if I don't I can never impart those things unto the little girls who look to me as more than enough! Wow, Wow, Wow! Plainly put, Ashlee knows what she is doing. The boudoir session was the most empowering session for me! She made me feel at home, gave me instructions on exactly what to do for each pose and I knew from her previous work that I could trust that she would help me look my best. 

Big things come in small packages. That includes Ashlee's stature, the bedroom she photographs in, and the camera she uses. Beautiful things are created during your session and if you relax and be selfish in the time you are there, you will be amazed at the beautiful images you produce!

Do it, and you'll want to do it again and again! I can't wait for my next session!
