A couple of weeks ago I was very honoured to be asked by my lovely friends at Viva Voluptuous to be their photographer for a very special nude glitter photoshoot.
Viva Voluptuous offer plus size lingerie and swim wear, Liz the owner, started the company when she couldn’t find beautiful affordable lingerie for curvy girls.
The shoot was inspired by the #PositivelyGlittered movement in Australia, with the aim of promoting body confidence for every body.
When Liz asked me to be involved I jumped at the chance! The shoot was held in the most beautiful private garden in the New Forest. The day started out with the girls being covered in glitter. I cannot put in to words the incredible atmosphere that existed throughout the wholes shoot.
All the ladies involved were so open and enthusiastic, there was no self consciousness, no one was embarrassed, just a group of ladies of all shapes and sizes having great fun and celebrating themselves and their beautiful bodies. All the girls were happy to try out a range of poses, group shots and keen to put forward their own ideas making it a really fun collaborative shoot.
I loved the reaction of the horses, they were so curious and friendly. I bet they have never seen so many Lady Godivas before!
I know from experience that women are their own worst critics, constantly judging ourselves against the perfect woman. I know that every body is beautiful, sometimes you just need to see yourself through kinder eyes to change the way you see yourself and to start loving yourself.
Thank you ladies for allowing me to be part of this inspiring nude glitter photoshoot it was an uplifting and joyous experience, so different from my normal boudoir photoshoots.
Here are a few of my favourite images from the shoot, it was hard to choose because there are so many!
