Confidently Curvacious!

Being a plus size gal myself, this post is going to come from the heart. To start the ball rolling, I just want you to ask yourself this question...

You only have one body, so why not embrace it?

If you're anything like me (hanging out just down there in the picture below this paragraph), your insecurities will lie in the tops of your arms that have a little bit more meat on them than you would like, your overly massive bottom that seems to take over the second you check out your side profile in the mirror, and of course the legs! Lets just leave it at that shall we! I'll openly admit that it isn't always a breeze in the park, but If I sit and think carefully do I really care that I'm a bit different? Do I really care that my legs wobble a bit as I walk, do I really care that my bum might look a bit too big in those jeans I love so much. The fact is, I don't. You know why, because frankly it's no one else's business. Believe it or not I like to try and keep fit. I have a personal trainer and I dance. I like to eat well but of course am a fiend for a little bar of chocolate or two! I wouldn't be human if I didn't, but as is the famous saying, never judge a book by its cover...

As we all know by now, the media is the main culprit in body shaming. For years we have had it drilled into us that we have to look a certain way to be deemed 'attractive'. Perceptions are changing however, and of course that can be nothing but good! Plus size models such as Tess Munster, Ashley Graham and Tara Lynn are opening up a world of possibilities for us curvy cuties, and as our social media feeds become more overrun with love and acceptance for all body shapes and sizes everyday, the good vibes just keep on coming!

Here at Andrew Wood we love nothing more than challenging each and every one of those body shaming perspectives by channelling your inner curves! Our award winning female boudoir photographers have a brilliant eye for making you look and feel your best of course, and enhancing what assets we have! After all, why don't we deserve to feel sexy and amazing just because have a little bit more to love??

We are curvy, we are beautiful & we are taking the world by storm. 

If you need any more reasons to believe your worth a million dollars, then check out some of these inspirational quotes from other body confident beauties:

'Girls of all kinds can be beautiful – from the thin, plus-sized, short, very tall, ebony to porcelain-skinned; the quirky, clumsy, shy, outgoing and all in between. It's not easy though because many people still put beauty into a confining, narrow box...Think outside of the box...Pledge that you will look in the mirror and find the unique beauty in you.' - Tyra Banks

‘I think that whatever size or shape body you have, it's important to embrace it and get down! The female body is something that's so beautiful. I wish women would be proud of their bodies and not diss other women for being proud of theirs!’ - Christina Aguilera

‘I love my curves and I embrace them.’ - Eva Mendes

‘I’ve never had one of those amazing yoga bodies. My body is what it is. I am sure if I went on a crash diet, lost two stone and toned up I could make loads of money by making fitness videos and selling my story to the tabloids. But I don’t want to encourage women to be anything other than what they are. That’s very important to me.’ - Kelly Brook

So why not join us and celebrate your body in style! Come in for that confidence boost you've been craving and our photographers will work with you to make you shine like the star you deserve to be! Live life on the daring side and push yourself out of your comfort zone once in a while, it will do your confidence the world of good! You deserve to look amazing, I have no doubt that you will surprise yourself!

The Hotties ladies of 2016 came to Andrew Wood Photography once again to create next year's charity calendar, we can't share the final images yet but here is a sneak peek of what we got up to!

Fifty Shades of grey takes over AWP Studios

If you haven't heard of the phenomenon that is Fifty Shades of Grey then you must have been living under a rock for last few years!

"Fifty Shades of Grey is a 2011 erotic romance novel by British author E. L. James. It is the first installment in the Fifty Shades trilogy that traces the deepening relationship between a college graduate, Anastasia Steele, and a young business magnate, Christian Grey. It is notable for its explicitly erotic scenes and the way it has brought erotic practice into the mainstream public eye."

Being a leading Boudoir Photography studio in Manchester we have heard alot about the book series and how much it has sparked their imagination. Many have mentioned that they would like us to provide an experience around the books and movie.

As Andrew Wood Photography Studios is home to award winning specialist boudoir photographers we have been more than happy to oblige! We have found that this type of experience would be a fantastic opportunity for our photographers to delve into a new realm of boudoir photography that allows not only the ladies to unleash their inner sexy side but also if they choose, to have their partners join in on the action!

"We take elements from the series and also put some of our own little spins on the themes  giving ladies the chance to be the dominating powerful roles as well as our male subjects."

Since our Fifty Shades of Grey experiences launched in Late 2014 we have had a massive surge of couples and ladies wanting to have the boudoir photoshoots with a twist.

Our fifty shades of grey experiences allows couples to capture images that show them as sexual beings rather than the typical portrait shoots that most couples are normally more inclined to be offered.

Ladies will undergo a professional makeover session before being whisked away into our boudoir room for a styled photoshoot solo or with their partners. Our specialist photographers will then pose and style the images to the level of sensuality that will embody the couples relationship and naughty side.

Bring along your  new naughty underwear or use it as a chance to have a shopping spree. Combine that with our props and styled sets galore you will be spoilt for choice during your shoot.

The result is a set of images that are tasteful and can be a cheeky keepsake to look back on or for ladies to give as a perfect alternative gift to their partners.
