The Great Photographer Experience – The Photographer Becomes the Photographed
Wow – where do I begin! I decided it was time to truly have my own boudoir session. Ah, yes… the great photographer experience – where the photographer becomes the photographed. What a life changing experience. I cannot believe how much this session really changed EVERYTHING ABOUT ME! I shot this video testimonial right after I had my reveal of my images from Teri Hofford Photography.
I remember Teri distinctly telling me how she thought I was going to be one of her toughest clients because I wanted to wear wardrobe that was super large to cover areas that I was concerned about. I always tell my clients to trust me and to just give up control. Well, let me tell you – doing exactly that is one of the toughest things I ever had to do. But – I did it. I trusted that Teri knew what she was doing and that she was going to create some incredible images showcasing me in ways I never imagined.
Never did I ever imagine that I could look like THIS! It’s funny because my clients would always tell me how having their session with me and seeing their photos changed their self confidence but I never TRULY understood – until now! This was one of the scariest, but most rewarding things I have ever done. I cannot even explain in words what it was like as a photographer giving up full control to someone else and being the subject. Now, I see myself in ways I never did before. I have learned to EMBRACE my curves. To stop comparing myself to some beauty standard that is unrealistic… love the skin I am in. To realize I am a freakin’ beautiful snowflake. Snowflakes are unique, one of a kind, unlike others – so there is no reason to compare myself. I now stand more confident in my skin than I ever have. It’s crazy to think that having some photos taken can truly do that – but I am here to tell you – IT DOES!
I have been asked if this will change the way I photograph others. How could it not? Not only did Teri help me to see the incredible lighting I had in my studio differently, but she allowed me to see photography truly from the standpoint of my clients. When I say my life has changed, I mean everything in it – my career included. The great photographer experience – where the photographer becomes the photographed. Before, my clients got a great photography experience from me. Great isn’t good enough anymore. Only phenomenal will do from here on out. Things will never be the same because of this opportunity.
