IS BOUDOIR RIGHT FOR YOU!
Updated: Sep 27
Ladies, I'm about to let you in on something. Something you have probably told yourselves isn't true in the past. YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!
We have those moments where we stare at ourselves in the mirror, examining every single tiny detail about ourselves and we judge and criticize and often tell ourselves some pretty harsh and ugly things. We may not do this every day, or FEEL this way every day, or every week for that matter. But at some point we have all been there. Felt so ugly it becomes the one thing we believe about ourselves for a while.
There are some many amazing, beautiful, stunning women out there who don't feel beautiful. Too many woman have self image problem and lack confidence in the way they look. And I think that is a damn shame! The thing about women is we are all beautiful and should beautiful being who we are. That is one of the reasons I love boudoir so much! Boudoir and glamour sessions have the ability to make someone feel amazing about how they look. It doesn't matter your shape, size, height, skin colour or age; boudoir shoots are for everyone! Beauty doesn't discriminate. I truly believe that at some point in your life time, all woman should have the experience of a boudoir session.
I have seen girls leave the studio in tears over how beautiful they feel afterwards, gotten messages weeks later from woman talking about how they still have a bounce in their step. And speaking from personal experience, I can honestly tell you that a boudoir session is one of the empowering things I have ever done for myself.
Now I'm sure you are sitting there talking yourself out of a session. You are probably making a list of the parts of your body you don't like!
DON'T WORRY ABOUT IT! We ALL have parts of ourselves we may not be too happy with. I call them 'worry areas' NOT problem areas. Because our bodies are not problems. These areas simply areas of your body you have decided to worry about. And I get it. A professional will be able to pose you so attention is pulled away from areas and draw the eye towards areas you may find more flattering about yourself. And at the end of the day, of course, there is Photoshop. I, personally, won't go over board on the Photoshop. After all, we want these photos to still look like you! If you have a major zit, I can zap it. You have a tattoo with the name of your first boyfriend, I can remove it.
Now what are some reasons you might want to have a boudoir session? There are many! Partake in a boudoir or glamour session if... 1) You want to reward yourself for transforming your body after having a baby or after athletic training. 2) Boost self confidence. 3) a Sexy, unique and personal gift for your loved one. 4) (and this one is my personal favorite) You are only young once, so have some photos so when you are 80 year old you can look back and say 'DAMN! I was a hottie!" 5) Do something for yourself for a change. These sessions are fun and you feel like a queen! If you have any other questions don't hessite to ask! Of course one of the most important things to remember when it comes to boudoir sessions, is that you feel comfortable and confident! So be sure to pick a photographer that is right for you and you are comfortable with.
