“I’ve always wanted to do a Boudoir session, but I’m too afraid.”

If only I had a dollar for everytime I’ve heard it.
“I’ve always wanted to do something like this, but I’m too afraid.” The thing is, it’s not your fear that stops you. It’s something far more dangerous than fear—it’s doubt.

See, I’m kinda happy you have a little fear inside of you—it’s healthy, it’s working for your own good. Fear is what wakes you up, quickens your heart, makes you feel alive…gives you something to chase and conquer.

Doubt—is another thing entirely. It’s the elephant in every room, the unavoidable dragon that you have to slay or stay forever frozen in the place you’ve found yourself in. doubt distracts you, blurs the lines, weakens your spirit. Perhaps the most devastating effect of doubt, the biggest bone I have to pick with it–is that it’s the one thing that will keep you from acting, from counting to three and jumping, from just doing the thing you know you want/ need…

…from taking a chance. From betting on yourself.

It is your most relentless enemy, because it’s the hardest one to see.

These shoots aren’t about getting over your fear, for that is something I hope stays pulsing through your veins forever. Instead, it’s about getting in the ring and taking swings in the dark against something you can’t see, something far more stealthy than you ever gave it credit for.

Because it is only then, that you can begin to live the life you were born to live…

…without a shadow of the doubt that has paralyzed you, for as long as you can remember.
