So you’ve thought about doing a Boudoir Session. Or maybe you’ve been encouraged by someone to do one. I’m sure that there are many reasons in your head on why you shouldn’t do a Boudoir Session but I’m here to explain to you on why there are many reasons that you should do one.
Sure, putting yourself on display in a very vulnerable state can be intimidating, I get it. The positive energy that you can give yourself from doing one of these sessions is priceless and worth the experience. I am speaking from experience as a man that has done one. There is a sense of freedom that is felt when in the moment of a Boudoir Session, an escape from the outside world. No experience in life can be as liberating from the empowerment that a Boudoir Session can provide. I’m here to give you 5 reasons on why:
1.) To celebrate You!
You are a dope person, contrary to your own thoughts. There’s an image in our heads of this person that we feel that we should be and we chase this image daily until we reach our goal. I’m not here to deter you from being the best version of you that you can possibly be, but I will encourage you to celebrate you in the now. You have accomplished so much in life & whether or not we hear that from others, it’s important that we celebrate the success that we’ve achieved up to this point. How often do you get the chance to pamper yourself & feel like a model for a day? Escape from life for a minute and give yourself a reason to step out of your box to try something new!
2.) To Get Pampered!
Maybe you’re a wife, a mother, a working professional, you’re getting married, celebrating a fitness goal, pregnant, or you’ve had some sort of life altering event. Giving yourself an opportunity to break away from reality is just what you need. We often do so much for others rather than doing anything for ourselves. A boudoir session is a reason to go shopping and pamper yourself to overall be loved and have all the attention drawn on you for a day.
3.) Discover a new level of Confidence!
With so many references out there of what a woman is supposed to look and feel like, there’s no authenticity. Feeling confident & comfortable in your own skin can seem impossible at times but taking time to go against your everyday routine and pamper yourself can be the pick me up that you’ve been secretly searching for. Boudoir is empowering & will help you connect with your inner self!
4.) Rediscover your Sexy You!
The monotonous riggers of everyday life don’t allow for much of anything it seems like. 24 hours in a day and 16 of those hours are accounted for the minute that you wake up everyday. Years and years of that monotony draw you away from yourself and when you get time to explore your femininity, the energy that you once had is harder to find. A boudoir session provides a safe space to allow you to rediscover that sexy you put on display in a group of timeless images.
5.) See the Beauty that Others See!
We are our own worst critics and we focus on everything that is wrong with us rather than highlighting what’s beautiful about us. A boudoir session will give you a new appreciation for yourself and encourage you to love and embrace your body, just the way that you are! You don’t have to lose weight first. Posing, wardrobe and lighting are key at showing off your most amazing features. You’ll be amazed by the results!
So many times I hear that I am not beautiful enough for a shoot like that or I need to lose a little weight. You are beautiful the way that you are and you have accomplished so much! Boudoir sessions are for everyday regular women like you! Every woman deserves to be pampered and to feel beautiful! A unique experience as such by stepping outside of your box can be empowering, sexy, beautiful and make you feel confident. It doesn’t have to be just a one time experience, this can be the first of many! Don’t hold off on this experience any longer by finding all of what’s wrong with you, celebrate all of what’s beautiful about you & how far you’ve come!
