Welcome, so glad you made it. Join me in taking a moment to appreciate your mind and body. Take a minute to really look at yourself in front of a mirror. With gratitude, trace your hands over the parts of yourself that have remained in the dark for too long. Pay special tribute to your parts that carry you through this world, day after day. Honor your digestive system and appreciate its ability to absorb all the nutrients you provide, that kept you fueled and give you the energy to work it, All. Damn. Day. Give that big, beautiful brain some extra love for not only problem-solving and navigating this world, but for bringing you here to this moment – to a community full of validation and the desire to celebrate the beauty that is the raw human form. Come along for a journey highlighting exclusive insight on how to capture the perfect nude selfie as told by the professional herself, OnlyFans creator Charlotte Lavish. 


Nudity has always been a part of the human journey. Across cultures and continents bodies have been painted, sculpted, and celebrated throughout history. Over the last few hundred years the rise of Christianity and the gendered roles of men and women across the globe have dampened the expression of nudity. Although these facts have thwarted societies of people from freely sharing their natural assets in the public eye, the appreciation for the aesthetic of naked was never lost. Today we have more freedom in self-expression with outlets and social media platforms such as OnlyFans. Individuals have taken back power and ownership of their bodies, giving a big middle finger to the powers that still attempt to control what individuals can and can’t do with their own bodies. Lavish offers some words of wisdom to take into consideration before getting snap happy in your journey. “Have a clear vision of what you want in life, be aware of how your actions affect this vision, be honest with yourself and your intentions, and create a space that keeps you and your identity safe.”


Before we go on, let’s make sure we are on the same page – you don’t have to bare it all to take a Nude. Let’s throw your preconceived ideas of how things are “supposed to be” out the window. You have permission to define what a nude selfie is for yourself! Whether your draped in the finest silk or lathered in the hearty mud of the earth, this is your journey. These steps are meant to empower you to build yourself a foundation, live in your power, respect your process, and illustrate your fiercest self. Take from it what resonates and leave the rest behind!


Step One: Build Your Foundation


Charlotte grew up in New York, establishing a solid baseline of confidence in herself long before her debut as an OnlyFans content creator. Developing confidence does not always come easy for everyone, and that’s okay. To engage in the change consistency is the most important effort when it comes to changing a behavioral or human thought pattern. Give this self-loving practice a try: look into a mirror, really look at yourself choose the parts of your body that you appreciate, the parts that you want to appreciate. Tell yourself every day, multiple times a day why and how much you love each of your favorite parts. Do this over and over until it feels comfortable, until picking out the beautiful parts of who you are comes as second nature. Surround yourself with people that encourage and support this journey, let others help build your confidence. 

 

Step Two: Establish Your Lasting Power


From a young age we are conditioned to understand what beauty is “supposed to look like” from society’s viewpoint. If we are lucky, we learn that those conditioned ideas are just that, a conditioning. Beauty is different for each person, and your idea of beauty is likely to continuously shift as you yourself grow and evolve. When asked about what motivates Lavish to feel beautiful in her shoots she emphasized, “I try to show my personality as much as I can; it is exhausting to be fake.” Yas Queen! Music to my ears. Pretending to be someone or something you are not will always be the detriment to self-acceptance. We are all beautifully unique and uniquely beautiful. We all have our own gifts, strengths, flaws, and quirks, and when you learn to settle into those characteristics that is when the magic happens, and our true power comes to life. Charlotte speaks frequently on the importance of protecting our identity as we settle into and learn to love who we are as we are. Whether taking pictures just for us or to share with the world, “protecting your identity as much as you can shields you from unwelcomed invasions of your right to privacy.” 


Step Three: It’s ALL in the Lighting

Now put it all together and set your scene! Establish your backdrop. Keep it simple and be aware of your surroundings, especially if your plan is to share or post your picture for the public eye. Ensure there is no identifiable information in sight. Moisturize that skin. Try out a few different outfits. Open the curtains and let that natural light shine through. Remember where you highlighted the parts of your body that you love. Lavish accentuated “lighting and angles go hand in hand.” Use shadows to hide your insecurities and look to the light to draw attention. Charlotte recommends using a clicker or using a self-timer so that your body positioning is relaxed, comfortable, and ready for that Snap!
