my little corner of inspiration
When I was younger I kept a little journal hidden under my mattress where I would draw and express my creativity, write down my memories, and document my hopes and dreams. It was a safe place for me to express myself without judgment. Now, twenty years later, I am reinventing the little journal I once hid away and sharing it with all of you. Here you will find vulnerability, creativity, and a new found way for me to showcase my work with the world.
As a Chicago Photographer, you could say that my passions are multi-faceted. Over the years perfecting my craft, I have dabbled in several different creative expressions. Family, senior, branding, and wedding photography are some of them. However, one that forever captured my soul and grew into a real thriving passion of mine is boudoir… but not just any boudoir. Recently, Wren and Rose Photography has deep-dived into the world of self-love and began the ultimate Self Luv Club. It’s kinda the ish… not gonna lie. Ever since the launch of the Self Luv Club by Wren and Rose, I’ve gotten a number of people wondering what it is, what we do, and what we support. So let me break it down to you real easy for those of you wondering why should you book a self-love photo session.
First, let’s dive deeper into the definition of what a self-love session really is. Keep in mind that this is my definition of a self-love session. Very similar to a boudoir session, a self-love session focuses on being able to celebrate your body and honor your authentic self. It gives you the opportunity to say “Hey, I’m sexy and I know it” and completely and 100% embrace it. It allows women to break out of their comfort zone, show off their confidence and even get that little boost if they’re feeling down.
Ultimately, a self-love session is a way to express yourself in the most empowering and beautiful way possible. It is honestly a life-changing experience and something I typically recommend women try at least once in their lives. While it may seem scary leading up to the moment, never have I ever had someone regret their choice to invest in a self-love session. It’s not just an investment in beautiful photos, it’s an investment in yourself. Think of it as the ultimate form of self-care *wink*.
At Wren and Rose Photography, we believe in celebrating everyBODY. We want everyone to feel included and welcome into the Self Luv Club!
At this point, maybe I’ve hooked you a little bit on the idea of a self-love photo session. However, you may need a bit more convincing as to why so many gorgeous women choose to be so vulnerable. Below are just a few of the many benefits of booking a self-love photo session!
This goes without saying, but a self-love session is one of the best confidence boosters I have ever seen. So many women come to self-love sessions when they aren’t feeling their most confident selves. While it may seem like the completely opposite of what you want to be doing, in all actuality, a self-love session is exactly where you need to be. Imagine the entire time during your shoot completely feelinggggg yourself, playing your favorite music and just feeling like a boss B****. On top of that, you then wait for a completed gallery and you’re feeling yourself all over again. You leave your self-love session feeling empowered and confident inside and out and remember that you are indeed… the ish.
Another reason why booking a self-love photo session may be your cup of tea is it’s a great way to break out of your comfort zone. Now, before you run away, hear me out! Not many of us actually like to break out of our comfort zone. I mean, it’s called a comfort zone for a reason, right? However, when I tell you the amount of relief and empowerment that I have witnessed in front of my own eyes as I see women breaking out of their shells. Well, it’s inspiring. Once you take a vulnerable risk such as this one, you feel more inclined to take more in other aspects of your life. Allowing yourself to feel more free, and confident in your decisions. Overall being able to learn more about your body and yourself as a whole.
Not to mention, booking a self-love session makes for the ultimate gift for your partner. While these sessions are not necessarily to please others, it doesn’t hurt if you want to give your partner a bit of a spicy present. Whether you’re a bride-to-be, or you’re looking to spice it up with your partner for no particular reason, a self-love session is the perfect way to do it. You’re able to print your favorite photos from your session into an album and surprise your partner with something completely different and sexy. Trust me, this will definitely have them fawning over how stunning you look throughout each and every page.
Last but CERTAINLY not least, you get to wear some cute AF outfits. One of the many benefits of a self-love session is that you have the freedom to wear whatever you want. The whole point is to feel confident and beautiful within your own body. So whether you want to be fully nude, wearing lingerie or even wearing your favorite oversized sweater. The sky is the limit! We get to brainstorm your inspiration, your style, and the vibe that you’re looking for in your self-love session. Then, we turn that vision into a reality. Sounds pretty fun right? You not only get to feel hot but you get to LOOK hot too!
Maybe at this point, you are READY to change your life, or maybe just get some sexy photos of yourself. Whichever have you, I am ready. If you’re wondering how to book a self-love photo session, listen up!
