Finding Vulnerability in Male Portraiture | Tyler, Pt. 2 | Cedar Falls Boudoir Photographer
Male Boudoir Session, Continued from A Slice of Tyler
Cedar Falls / Waterloo / Cedar Valley Iowa Boudoir Photographer
I wanted to wait on these since Tyler was planning these specific images for a very special lady, and it just felt right to break this blog into two parts. With Tyler's pizza session, we focused on his goofy side. For as long as I've known Tyler he's always been a goof, so it came natural that his session should reflect that.
I did inform him that I wanted to also showcase his more vulnerable and emotive aspects. Society tells men they can't express their feelings in non-masculine ways and it's toxic. Men and women have a lot of the same insecurities, yet men are supposed to repress them. Feminism for me benefits men in the fact that I believe men shouldn't be afraid to get vulnerable. Being vulnerable is so empowering and freeing, but not the easiest thing to do.
If you're in my Facebook group, you should know by now that I'm all about getting vulnerable and open. I talk a lot about my personal issues and what I'm doing to overcome them. I think everyone should experience the power of getting vulnerable in some way, shape or form!
