I want to hear your stories about relationships and sexuality. Good and bad. Happy and heavy.
When I first started out as a boudoir photographer, I quickly learned that while the photos are the tangible result of the photo shoot, there is a lot going on inside.
I have openly been an advocate for strong relationships not only with your significant other(s), but with yourself. Because of this, I’ve had many people approach me who want to be heard, who need to vent and let it out. Some have asked about my advice and I’ve heard this question so many times. It’s one that I’m sure we’ve all asked in despair, “what do I do?” To be honest, I don’t always have an answer…but maybe someone else does. Maybe someone who has been there before. While many of these stories revolve around shame, anger, frustration, being ignored, and being taken for granted, other stories are about celebrating victories, making huge strides in relationships, overcoming fears, and building up from vulnerability.
I want to share your stories because I want people to know that they are not alone. Chances are that if one person is going through something, others are too.
Sex and hardships in relationships aren’t something we talk about publicly. These are very private and intimate subject matters. What I want to do is to start conversations. Yes, these are intimate topics, but that doesn’t mean we can’t talk about it.
Why does something that we deal with every single day of our life have to be labeled as “taboo.”
Forget that! I want everyone to let go of whatever shame we are holding onto. Saying things out loud, reading your own story that is happening to someone else, is extremely powerful. Most importantly, it’s a starting point to moving forward.
“The two most important days of your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.” – Mark Twain
My purpose in life is to help people celebrate their sexuality. But first, we must be liberated.
So whatever it is, tell me. I want to hear your story.
