Beauty & Badass’ery: Vancouver Boudoir Photoshoot

I believe that ALL women posses both Beauty and Badass’ery. When you set foot into my studio for your empowering Vancouver Boudoir Photoshoot, you may not think of yourself as a baddass. By the time your shoot is over, however, I can pretty much guarantee that you will certainly feel badass! And beautiful of course too! And empowered. And alive! So many things.

Each vancouver boudoir photoshoot is a different experience as each woman is unique and has a different life story. When you arrive in studio you may have a certain vision and while you’re expressing yourself and exploring all of your many facets, you may just discover a part of you that’s been inside and waiting to be revealed. She may be powerful, delicate, beautiful, badass. She may be many things and it’s so exciting to be witness to how each photoshoot unfolds.

During your empowering boudoir photoshoot you can tap into your playful side, your alter ego, your sensuality and even your dark side. As some of us feel as though our identity has become blurred over the years, lost even, this is also an opportunity to find ourselves again. Re-discover all that makes us so magnificently multi-faceted.

I will never tell you who to be or how to act. Only you know your true self. But I am here to cheer you on and hold space for you to express yourself without shame or judgement. Through this empowering vancouver portrait experience, you’ll get to explore your own version of your Beauty and your Badass’ery. I don’t define it. It reveals itself during your photoshoot and you get to embrace all of it, all of you, fully and whole-heartedly.

3 Tips to Tap Into Your Own Badass’ery

So how exactly do you tap into your own Badass’ery? Well, it’s different for everyone, but ultimately, you embrace your inner Confidence, Strength and Authenticity – which we know can be hard to do.

Life is a journey of self-discovery and personal growth, and being aware of who you truly are will lead you to recognize your badass’ness. Take these tips with you in your daily life and your badass’ery will certainly be revealed during your Mateus Studios photoshoot. So remember, you don’t need to go out and get a tattoo, ride a motorbike or wear leather to be badass! While we love those things and welcome all those vibes here, we want you to know that you are a badass as you are, now it’s time to tap into that energy in pure celebration!

Embodying this badass spirit, in our eyes anyway, is all about embodying who you are with confidence. Here’s three tips that might help you tap into your inner badass!

1. Self-Acceptance and Authenticity

Embrace who you are, perceived flaws and all. Recognize that authenticity is a key component of being a badass. Embracing your uniqueness and being comfortable in your own skin can empower you to take on daily life, challenges included, with a fearless attitude (like doing a Boudoir Photoshoot!). When you own your true self, you exude confidence and strength. This isn’t always easy, so we get it, but little by little as you keep allowing yourself to be who you truly feel you are (or want to be!), it will become second nature to be fully you.

At Mateus studios we believe that all badasses come in all shapes and sizes!

2. Do Something That Gives YOU Pleasure, Often

Life is busy and not always about you but taking care of ourselves is super important. Take some time for yourself and do something that gives you pleasure. This could be anything. Alone or with someone else. No matter the activity (and you can change it up), make the time, take the time and just do it! Setting this plan into place and then fulfilling it, will be fulfilling for you too! Boom!

3. Mindset and Resilience

Cultivate a positive and resilient mindset. Badasses don’t let failures or setbacks define them. Instead, they view the world with a positive light and see the bright side. Challenges are an opportunity for growth. A strong mindset enables you to power through, overcome obstacles, and keep moving forward, showcasing your inner badass’ness.

It truly is a magical experience doing your very own Boudoir Photoshoot. And then just wait until you see your photos! That’s a whole other incredible experience that in many cases involves tears. Tears of happiness, joy, relief and wonder. Tears of awe as you look at yourself, and that unique beauty and badass’ery is confirmed and witnessed with your own eyes.

Here’s a small sampling of the many gorgeous women who’ve gifted themselves a Mateus Studios Vancouver Boudoir experience. You can truly see how each of them has their own beauty and badass essence. I know you have this within you too! What do you say, are you ready to tap into your inner badass?
