Hello, I’m Lize Okoh. I’m an Author and Owner of Okoh’s boudoir, who also happens to love being in front of the camera as much as behind it!
I love to try something new or challenging every year. Twelve years ago it was skydiving, last year it was roller skating, but this year I plan to learn how to pole dance! I love embarking on new adventures and don’t want to wait until I’m old and grey to start ticking activities off my bucket list!
When I’m not doing all this epic stuff though, my greatest passion is to empower and inspire other women. From the day we’re born, we’re taught how to speak, hold ourselves, dress, and act in comparison to others. We’re told what dress size is ideal, what colours are unflattering when to shave off hairs in our private parts, and as far as to dislike our bodies when it undergoes natural processes that come with living or being an adult woman.
I’d like to say enough! When do we get to do something for ourselves and cherish the bodies that give us life? I say the time is now, JUST AS YOU ARE.
Growing up, I always said to myself: “wouldn’t it be amazing to get a job where I compliment people all day and make them feel great about themselves?” And so I found boudoir and I love that it allows women to be themselves – sensual, vulnerable, strong, and powerful, all at the same time! Something we should have been allowed to be all along.
It’s time to ditch the scales and self-hating habits. Your weight, age, race, or identification shouldn’t hold you back from being your true self.
You are beautiful just as you are and with an awesome photographer in your corner, you get to document yourself in beautiful portraits and celebrate the soul that lies within.
I’m passionate about being an advocate for self-love and body positivity, and I’d like to empower you to do the same for yourself.
I can talk about why I chose to specialise in boudoir photography till the end of time, but it’s no fun having a one-sided conversation. So why not give me a call so we can talk more about it? And even better, you get to create your own special boudoir session with me.
I’m here to cheer you on!
