About Ron O and Why I Shoot Boudoir
When I started shooting Boudoir, I found that women, lovely women, would be amazed at how beautiful they were.
I have shot women of many shapes, sizes, and ages, from super-thin model types to women who would not be considered traditionally beautiful. And once I started taking pictures, they became increasingly empowered and comfortable being who they are. I showed them their beauty the way I see it, the way the outside world sees it.
I can’t guarantee your Boudoir Experience will be a life-changing event. Still, I can guarantee it will show you that you are magnificent as you are in this moment. You don’t have to wait for some magic, transformative event to claim your self-worth.
You can celebrate your best self right now.
Why I Shoot Boudoir
I grew up surrounded by powerful women. My mother, sister, and aunts were self-aware women who did not rely on the outside world to verify their self-worth.
And so, of course, I married a woman of similar self-confidence.
But I have noticed that not every woman feels that way. And realistically, I don’t think any woman always feels that way. (It’s not just a woman thing. Men all have their self-doubts as well)
Media, especially those marketed to women, hold out a particular idea of beauty. Tall, thin, vaguely exotic without being ethnic. Women’s media is filled with messaging about losing weight, makeup tips, and instructions on what clothes will make you socially acceptable this season. And you are constantly bombarded with the message that you need to find a man.
In other words, you are told you must change something to be acceptable.
