Body Image & The Boudoir
Healing Your Body Image, So You Can Help Them Heal Theirs
Welcome to Body Image & The Boudoir! This course is designed to help you heal your own body image issues so you can provide a truly powerful experience for your client. Through this video series, I will challenge your previously held belief systems around body image and provide you with the strategies necessary to move forward towards a happier, more positive body image! In addition, you will be provided with a number of different ways that you can combat the inner bias we all have about bodies to really make your client feel special, supported, and incredible. Lastly, I have included a live shoot of me working with a real life client who's never been photographed by me, so you can see how I direct, communicate and work with my clients to give them a diverse gallery of images that allows me to straddle the line between flattering and interesting images to help my clients have a better, more well rounded perspective of themselves!
Teri Hofford is a body image coach and boudoir educator who empowers photographers to embrace themselves and the beauty in body diversity through photography & education. She has been referred to as an emotional dominatrix and "Tough Love Teri" for her bold approach to personal responsibility and self love. After having been at both ends of the weight spectrum herself, Teri realized that achieving the "perfect" body was not the answer, but rather, finding contentment with the size and shape that one is at in the present is the key to feeling complete and confident. From this, Teri created what she refers to as her empowerment empire, which includes her body inclusive photography studio THP Studios, everyBODIES Education, an education resource for photographers to diversify the types of bodies we see in the media, and BODY IMAGE BOOTCAMP (™) workshops to help women cope with their body image issues. Teri's mission is to help women shift their focus from constantly changing their bodies so they can start changing the world.
