We hear it all the time.
” I don’t have a reason to do boudoir.”
We also hear:
- I have cellulite, scars, stretch marks, and wrinkles. No one wants to see that. Plus, I’m really awkward in front of a camera, and I don’t like myself in photos.”
- I need to be at my ideal weight. And right now, I just don’t have the body for boudoir. Maybe when I tone up and lose those last 15 lbs I’ll be ready?
- Me…sexy? I don’t feel sexy and it’s not a word I would use to describe myself at all. You have to be sexy to take boudoir photos.
Let me be the first to tell you that you don’t need a special reason to do boudoir photos. And you certainly don’t need to be a specific size, look a certain way, or feel confident in front of the camera!
Boudoir photography is an act of self-love that goes beyond the external. Sure, we may be taking photos of your body, but we’re also celebrating that body and the beautiful soul it houses.
Clients come to me to get boudoir photos for many reasons: to gain confidence, work on being more body positive/neutral, and feel beautiful.
Some are overcoming health issues and trying to be at peace with their bodies again.
Some come to appreciate their bodies more after having kids. And others do boudoir as a way to celebrate their pregnancy/marriage/divorce/etc.
All of these are fabulous reasons to have boudoir photos taken of yourself. But even if none of these apply to you, remember that you don’t need a reason to do boudoir.
You don’t need a reason to feel good about yourself.
You may not realize it now, but you’re sexy as hell just the way you are. You don’t need to lose 15 pounds or get botox or whatever other reason you’ve told yourself. You don’t need to look around and compare other women’s boudoir photos to the ones you imagine of yourself. What makes one woman sexy doesn’t necessarily make another woman sexy. Embrace your own brand of beauty and who you are.
I love boudoir because it allows you to see yourself and your body in a different light. And it doesn’t discriminate against body types. So you can go ahead and silence that little voice in the back of your head telling you that you aren’t good enough. Remember, your worth doesn’t change based on your size or whether you have pillow lips and smooth skin.
Your scars, wrinkles, stretch marks – they are part of the patchwork of who you are. And who you are is one of a kind. It’s time to celebrate that.
You don’t need a reason to empower yourself to be all that you are.
Mother, friend, wife, daughter…you are all of that and more. Boudoir helps you see yourself as a whole instead of pieces of a person or a label. Because you are not only a boss babe, a loving mom, a wife, a girlfriend, or a fierce friend, you are all of these things wrapped into a seriously sexy woman who embraces life. And someone who celebrates herself because she’s a badass.
You don’t need a reason to pamper yourself.
We spend so much of our time and energy serving and taking care of others that we tend to forget about ourselves. Now it’s time to take care of YOU. And we’re here to help.
When you come to our studio, you’ll be pampered, inspired, and encouraged to be your most beautiful self. You’ll immediately feel your confidence come alive through this experience. And that confidence and energy will show in your photos.
In the end, you’ll not only walk away with gorgeous photos you can turn to to remind yourself of the badass babe that you truly are, but you’ll walk away feeling empowered, alive, confident and on top of the world.
My goal is to help you love and appreciate every part of yourself (inner and outer) at whatever stage you are in your life. And although loving yourself and your body -just for you- can feel weird or foreign at first, if you take this chance to see yourself in a positive light, you won’t regret it.
When it comes to boudoir photography, ask yourself, “Am I ready to appreciate my body more and boost my confidence?” Are you ready to walk around like you’re wearing a crown, knowing your value without a doubt? If the answer is yes (and it should be!), then you are ready.
Right. Now. Just as you are.
YOU ARE THE REASON.
