Stripped bare revealing soul beauty, Fine art nude photography, Toronto, ON

W A R N I N G: The following content contains nude photography that may be offensive or inappropriate to some viewers.

Layers are wrapped gently around her folds and appendages, giving this lovely false sense of security. The mere thought that a piece of cotton can hide all that shame, guilt and what she believes faults is irrefutable in her mind.

Society has bombarded us with the perfect image, doctored, photoshopped till the subject isn’t even recognizable yet we covet that image believing it’s the only way to be.

WELL guess what.. The only opinion that matters is the one you have about yourself.

Screw society, we as woman need to own our bodies and celebrate our uniqueness.

An amazing thing happens when you peel that false layer off, stripping someone bare is the fastest way to revealing their soul beauty. Nothing to hide behind just the fabulous vessel you were given to walk the earth with.

I am proud to announce another addition to DISCOVER, our STRIPPED BARE portraits. This is a meld of Boudoir and a DISCOVER session. Here is your opportunity to expose your true beauty in all its glory.

This session isn’t for everyone and that is okay. For those of you who are into exploring your body in an artistic and tasteful way then lets connect. You can reach me at shannon@discoversessions.com or 519-650-8131.

Enjoy this new exploration of art.

Bringing stories to life with soul beauty photography, DISCOVER sessions Southwestern, Ontario

“The sexiest thing someone can do for you is to inspire you to think a thought you never knew possible.”

Steam wafted up from her cup of java offering her face warmth after the arduous hike. As the conversation curled around the cozy coffee house her eyes wandered the walls. Hung with loving care were beautiful black and white portraits on canvas.

That’s all it took, one small gallery show at the Java Garden to peek this beautiful woman’s curiosity. She left that day with a business card in hand and the seed was planted. A year later she was ready to explore her soul beauty.

Amazing the connections we can make with people we don’t even know, the pleasure we can offer another human being by the smallest and simplest gesture. My heart melted when this bright and inquisitive woman contacted me and mentioned where she was first introduced to my work on the walls of downtown Hespeler.

It may never seem like the right time to be vulnerable and explore sides of yourself that you can’t see everyday. ..

Trust me this can be the most powerful thing you do this year..

Don’t believe me? Here is what this lovely client had to say after her session..

“Thank you for for bringing my story to life with the beautiful, stunning captures of the many colours of me and for sharing in my journey!”

I would love the opportunity to explore your soul beauty, to offer you an experience that will change the way you think about yourself. You can reach me at 519-650-8131!

A womans under armour | Guide what to wear for boudoir sessions, Boudoir photographer southwestern ontario

Consider for a moment what it would feel like to have a photo of yourself that made you truly believe you’ve got it going on. Investing in an experience that will provide you with a whole gamut of new super powers.

Now ask yourself what is stopping you? Why don’t you want to see yourself as the beautiful, sexy, confident, empowered, wise, curvy, racy, woman you are?

Ah, ah ah. Get out of your head. I know where you just went, listening to that endless chatter in your mind.. “Oh I am not beautiful, sexy, confident.. blah, blah, I need to lose 10lbs., I am to old, I am not worthy, I don’t feel like I am at my best yet…”

I have just the ticket for you.. a boudoir session. No need to be at your optimal, you just need to love yourself enough to believe you deserve to feel like you got it going on.. I will do the rest and work my magic with great lighting, awesome posing and of course creating an environment that makes you feel beautiful inside and out.

I believe a photograph should represent the REAL you. No hocus pocus in photoshop shrinking thighs, pumping boobs, changing your shape so much you don’t even recognize yourself. Yes I get we would all like to look like the magazines but even they are photoshopped. Lets get REAL ladies. Lets start loving ourselves for who we truly are inside and out.

So if you are looking for an experience that will change the way you think about yourself and well maybe just be the best gift you’ve ever given yourself then you need to give me a call and I will hook you up.

Over the next few weeks I am going to educate you on what a boudoir shoot entail, for all you doubters out there, lol. I am going to show you this session is one of the most exciting things you could do, an experience that keeps on giving.. to kick things off here is a guide on lingerie:

A woman's under armour

Babydoll: Shannons take:baby dolls can be worn again at home, nice coverage, cutsey

Boy short: Shannons take: My favourite panty by far, everyone looks good in a boy short, boy cut brief, there are variations that suit all body types. This is something I would suggest for every woman to invest in,Hanky Panky are my favourite.

Bustiers: Shannons take: These are great pieces and certainly can be worn again depending on the cut, style etc. If you are cool with baring your mid-riff, good investment.

Chemise: Shannons take: Everyone can wear this. Great coverage, fun flirty

Corset: Shannons take: really cool, but not for everyone, an investment, fit matters. The snugger the better but you also want to be concerned about what kind of puckers you will create. This piece is hard to move in, so you have to really like the idea of being sinched up to be comfortable in this style.

G-String: Shannons take: Hmm. Yes G-strings come with many outfits, they are best suited under a chemise or babydoll. I say leave the g-string behind and just go naked so you don’t get the crazy lines or puckers.

Garter Belt: Shannons take: love these accessories, super sexy, can be worn with just panties and stockings. Don’t need a whole outfit to makes this piece work.<

Teddy: Shannons take: teddy, jumper, romper, whatever you want to call it are fun, easily worn in your traditional bedtime attire so not a one hit wonder like say a corset. Def: Combination of camisole and panties in one piece. May be fitted to the body , or loose.

Thong: Shannons take: thongs are great.. but I think your boy short/half but coverage can be way more flattering then seeing a hungry bum with a half you panty up your butt. They serve there purpose under clothes but aren’t always the most flattering. Hey if you got a great ass that you can bounce quarters off then this might be the underwear for you.

Stay tuned for more information on your boudoir session… or if you can’t wait, lets set up an appointment to sit down and chat about how we can make this experience one of a kind!

Inspiration drawn from quotes, Soul Beauty photographer Ontario

Quotes for me are these little self-help mini jabs, which create these splendid ah ha moments when new awareness suddenly comes to light.

I collect these morsels of goodness like a hoarder with a colossal 915 and counting on my PINTEREST board. This obsession with pinning quotes has expanded recently into DISCOVER.

These truthful words that have been strung together so vibrantly are the perfect little love notes for clients. A reminder of their experience and the bright new perspective gained.

The quote above certainly says it all. Whether you book a DISCOVER, Couple or Boudoir session the experience alone will stretch your thinking to an empowered and confident state. The photos captured ensure you don’t go back into old patterns of bullying yourself in the mirror.

Don’t take it from me.. ask any previous client. The testimonials on the website, recommendations on Facebook certainly speak for themselves and the countless emails I’ve received after the sessions with reports of feeling beautiful, seeing themselves for real, loving what they felt.

“To be inspired is great but to be inspire is an honour.”

I would be honoured to find the perfect mini jab of goodness to add to your custom designed album or personalized blog post. Lets stretch our minds into something wonderful with this remarkable opportunity. Feel free to email me to book your appointment for a chit chat at Shannon@discoversessions.com
