Why book a boudoir session?
I say why not? Boudoir sessions don’t need a reason. They’re fun. They’re empowering. They’re rewarding. Many women do book their sessions for particular reasons though. Some women don’t believe that they deserve an experience like this and need a little extra push as to why they do! Here are my top reasons for booking a boudoir photo shoot:
Reason #1: TO KNOW YOU ARE WORTH IT.
Every woman deserves to feel comfortable in her own skin. We are subjected to and inundated with images of aesthetic perfection every day in the media. We compare ourselves constantly to unattainable standards. And we let ourselves, even if for a millisecond, believe lies about our bodies. We were created as crowning jewels; we are beauty personified. Sometimes we don’t even know it until we allow ourselves to be placed in a spot of vulnerability. Boudoir is the spot. Boudoir photography allows you to truly rediscover what real beauty is—your beauty.
Reason #2: TO GET IN TOUCH WITH YOUR INNER GODDESS.
Let’s be real. A very large percentage of us probably do not get glammed up every day. I know I don’t. I’ll be lucky if I put on some concealer to hide the puffy bags under my “only six hours of sleep” eyes! Boudoir is a time to let your hair down (literally) and indulge in a little bit of pampering with my hair and make up artist. So live up the glamour, glitz, and sparkle! Because tomorrow, you’ll be back to your inner moral dilemma of “If I put my mascara on, will I have time to eat breakfast?”
Reason #3: TO CELEBRATE A MILESTONE.
There is no better way to celebrate a weight loss goal than to rock what your momma gave you! You worked hard to get where you are, and it’s time to celebrate. Whether it was weight loss, a promotion at work, or even just graduating college with three kids in tow, life is one big celebration. We have to take a moment for ourselves and throw some confetti.
Reason #4: TO HAVE AN EXCUSE TO DO SOME RETAIL THERAPY.
Going shopping for accessories and lingerie is just plain fun! Okay, so it may cause anxiety for some (like me) because there are so many choices and ideas. However, putting together an outfit that would never see the public eye is rather alluring and exciting. When else would you get to justify chunky, multi-strands of pearls and cream-colored heels?
Reason #5: TO GIVE AN AMAZING GIFT.
I cannot think of a better gift to give to him than yourself. Show me one man who was not absolutely gaga over boudoir photos of his special lady, and I’ll show you the apocalypse. Men are visual creatures; they connect and internalize images. We may roll our eyes when we see a man recognize a beautiful woman, but it’s how they were wired. When we give images of ourselves, we say, “I respect and love you. I know this is one mode of communication that you appreciate.”
So – Are You Ready?
By now you should see the reasons why a boudoir photo shoot is a great decision to make. Reconnect with yourself. Give an awesome gift. Feel like a queen for the day. Are
