The Boudoir Photoshoot

Krisha Barker 26 runs a bespoke jewellers in Leamington Spa and is single she says,

"Although at a dress size six I know I'm not fat, I still have body hang ups, like every other woman namely, like not liking my bum or thighs plus I've always been quite shy at 21 I heard about for your eyes only portraits a company offering full body makeover photoshoots at its studios in High Wycombe.

Thinking it sounded fun and might help me overcome my poor body image I treated myself to a boudoir photoshoot. Yes I was terrified at the idea of being naked, but the team there were all women. The studio door was locked, and as I took off my underwear, I cast off my inhibitions too. Having done something so brave I started to believe in myself more and became more confident.

 

I went for a second shoot last year after breaking up with my boyfriend. It was still daunting being naked in front of people, but it was a new way of celebrating my new life reassuring myself that I was fine, being single."

The Naturist

Emma Stokes 29, is studying psychology at Keele University, and it's in Stoke on Trent.
She says, "When I turn 30 this summer I'll be celebrating on a nudist beach in Crete wearing nothing but my birthday suit, yet until two years ago when a friend asked me to accompany her to the British naturism convention, I'd never stripped in public.
At the time, I was a size 16 to 18 I've now slimmed to a size eight — and there are scars on my stomach from surgery to remove my appendix and a benign bowel tumour. Although my friend and I kept our clothes on, I was amazed how relaxed the naturists were and began studying naturalism as part of my degree."
"Last November I went to another British naturism convention. And this time I got naked. I ran straight to the jacuzzi where only my head could be seen but after 20 minutes, I was brave enough to walk around naked and to my surprise, it felt liberating. I always said, I treat myself to breast implants, when I graduate, but now there's no need now, as naturism has taught me to accept my body as it is. I can't wait to bare all in Greece."

The Nude Model

Jane Hamilton 29 works in PR and lives in Scotland, with her partner. Having stripped naked, for hundreds of life, art classes, it seems incredible that a decade ago I was having counselling, while recovering from a five year, eating disorder.
In 2006, a colleague's brother who was studying photography needed a model for a nude shoot and persuaded me to do it. I was a bag of nerves as I undressed but the minute I saw the photos I was overcome as I'd never seen my body may be made to look more beautiful. It got me thinking that instead of hating my body I should be grateful that it's never let me down. And if I have a few lumps and bumps so what who hasn't in 2008, when I'd moved to Oxford, I spotted an advert for a nude model for life drawing classes at an all boys private school, my friends thought I was bonkers to apply thinking the 17 year old boys would be immature. But to my delight. You pupils were so appreciative. For three years I did 15 live classes a month, the chance to pose naked for a photographer six years ago gifted me a more positive attitude to myself and life in general.
