2020 hasn’t turned out like any of us planned.
If you aren’t an essential worker, you’re inside. If you are essential, your work looks very different that it did at this time last year. We are all getting our social interaction from apps (does anyone else wish they bought stock in Zoom??) and I don’t know about anyone else, but I haven’t worn real pants in over a month.
2020 was going to look very differently here too — we had monthly events planned with Body Love Buffalo that were going to be a source of empowerment for our community. There was a every body is a summer body campaign that was going to involve a billboard so Buffalo women could see themselves in larger than life photos.
Enter: Webcam Sessions
For an afternoon, we want you to let it all go and dance it out with us. You can wear whatever the hell you want, blast your favorite playlist, and take up all the space you damn well please. You get a one-woman hype team cheering you on the whole way (consider me your own personal Lizzo) and some kickass photos from it.
How It Works
We hop onto Zoom or Facetime, and I direct you through a mini-boudoir session right from the comfort of your own home. It’s like a taste of our empowerment sessions without having to put real pants (or a mask) on to get there.
What You Need
A decent internet connection, a fully charged phone, a video chatting program, and some joy. That’s it, I’ve got the rest. All you have to do once we start is have a hell of a lot of fun.
What You Get
30 minutes of your own one-woman hype squad cheering you the hell on
A walkthrough of posing (don’t worry about what to do with your hands, I’ve got you)
10 photos of yourself feeling like a total badass
Okay, how much does it all cost?
With all of the uncertainty in the world for our fantastic clients, we are offering these for only $50.
HOW IS THIS DIFFERENT FROM A NORMAL BOUDOIR SESSION?
These sessions are meant as a boost of joy in a time that’s overwhelming at best. They are significantly shorter than our standard session, and the photographs will look different coming from a phone instead of my camera. They won’t be able to be printed large or made into books, but that doesn’t limit the feeling they bring.
These photos will still feel like you, and you will still leave feeling like the best version of yourself.
DO I HAVE TO LOVE LINGERIE OR BE FEMME TO DO THESE?
I’m so sorry you even have to ask this question, but absolutely not. Boudoir is about feeling like YOU, not like someone else’s definition of beauty. Wear whatever the hell you want; it’s all welcome here.
DO MY PHOTOS HAVE TO BE PUBLIC?
Absolutely not! Your comfort is our top priority so you are in complete control of any images shared (if there is any, no pressure).
DO I HAVE TO BE LOCAL TO PARTICIPATE?
Of course not! These are available to any woman and enby folks with a decent internet connection.
