There seems to be a common misconception when it comes to Boudoir photography. While tasteful beautiful seductive images DO make great gifts for your significant other, you do not need to be in a relationship or married to have a session. Boudoir sessions are more than just a photo shoot, they are an experience. And everyone deserves to enjoy this experience at least once in their lifetime.
Social media, TV shows, movies, etc., tend to leave us feeling just not good enough. We are either too thin or too heavy, too pale or too dark, too short or too tall.. we are ALL unique and built differently! We need to learn to embrace our bodies and learn to love them, flaws and all. A Boudoir experience is perfect for doing just that!
We can get caught up in the hustle and bustle of everyday life. It is very easy to “let yourself go'' if you don’t take the time to take care of yourself and treat yourself from time to time. The experience of a boudoir photo session is an excellent way to treat yourself. Many of us need to find ways to remind ourselves that we are beautiful. Stress and life in general can easily cause us to lose our confidence and self esteem. A Boudoir session can give us an outlet to feel beautiful and regain that self confidence that we tend to lose over the years.
The session isn’t just about taking photos of you. You get to be pampered and get your hair and make-up professionally done. The goal is to get you to relax and to highlight all of your best features to make you feel gorgeous in front of that camera. You will leave the session feeling so courageous and empowered, knowing that you still got it!
You do not need to have a special someone in your life as a reason to have a Boudoir session. In fact, they are perfect for singles! Maybe you have been scorned in a relationship or marriage? These sessions are a wonderful way to remind you that THEY lost something special. Maybe you just aren’t having any luck in the dating world so you are flying solo until the perfect one comes along? It can be easy to fall into the mindset that you just aren’t good enough for a relationship. Boudoir sessions can definitely change your mind.
So, do YOURSELF a favor and treat yourself to one of the best experiences you can have. You will leave feeling amazing and confident and beautiful. And when you see your images for the first time and see yourself in a way that will leave you knowing you are gorgeous and in fact, good enough!
