Why you deserve a boudoir experience
When we get nervous, we make excuses. We can make up any excuse not to take care of ourselves and not to love ourselves fully. We all have busy lives, we are too consumed with work, we have someone to drive somewhere that we don’t wanna be… Sometimes it’s more important to spend time with your partner… We make up excuses like “I’m not photogenic” or “I wanna lose weight first” or “I cannot afford it right now”. I am sharing this to show you all that no matter the excuse, you CAN do it! Let me show you that no matter how you think of yourself, you are worthy of your self love.
“I don’t have enough time for myself”
It’s also important to remember that if you aren’t taking care of yourself emotionally, if you’re not blossoming and blooming, you’re not going to be able to handle taking care of anyone else. Which makes sense but it’s much harder said than done. Sometimes I am the WORST at attending to my own needs, emotional needs, sometimes I don’t even stretch for a full week, we all know how that end up feeling! I always give myself mental health breaks when I feel I need to stop and take a break, otherwise, I’ll forget what my life is about, I’ll forget my purpose and my calling and be consumed with life’s rat race, and I don’t want that! I did it in my twenties, now in my thirties I’m done with that and I’m a new me who takes care of herself physically, mentally and emotionally.
The reason I’m sharing this with you guys is sometimes I need someone to look me in the face and say, “SLOW DOWN, give yourself a break, stop moving, breath for a minutes”.
At a boudoir shoot you are able to breath, and able to love yourself for a few hours. Think of all the energy you’ll save on a daily basis if you stop comparing yourself to others, or stop worrying about what other people will think of how you look. You get to see where your beauty really comes from and this lifts such a huge emotional weight and prepares us for a healthy mentality.
You need to take time for yourself, why not spend it having an amazing time and getting glammed up for once?
“I’m not where I want to be physically / I don’t fit the media’s idea of a good enough size”
Did you know that the body type portrayed in advertising as the ideal is possessed naturally by only 5% of females? ONLY FIVE PERCENT.
I will say this over and over again (and sorry, not sorry if you’ve heard me say it before), but WHY do you have to be a certain size to LOVE yourself? WHY do you have to fit a stranger’s messed up idea of a perfect body to love your own body? WHY are you comparing your size to everyone else, when no two women are the same?
In my opinion it’s great and essential to have goals and want to get healthy, but does that mean you hae to hate your body to do those things? Absolutely NOT! You should love yourself every step of the way. Be porud of where you are so that you can be proud of where you’re going. Have a boudoir shoot to celebrate where you are now and have one when you lose those 15 Lbs to celebrate how far you’ve come!
How many times in your life are you going to be at this age? Looking the way you do now? I don’t believe in waiting for boudoir photos. If you happen to look better in a year, then good for you, have another session done. Within 12 months of your first session I’m giving you a waived session fee just because you feel better about yourself and you want to create more art of yourself.
“I don’t feel sexy or sensual anymore so a boudoir shoot must not be for me”
This excuse is actually the EXACT reason you SHOULD do a boudoir shoot.
Often times we lose touch with our femininity or sensuality when life gets crazy because of health/kids/work etc… there’s no shortage for excuses we give to avoid loving ourselves again is to have a boudoir shoot done to bring that spark back into us. I can show you that you have that sparkle inside you. You hide it well but not from me, and it might even ignite a spark between you and your partner as well!
Another thing to remember is that you don’t have to wear super sexy clothing/ lingerie. If you feel like this doesn’t show your personality, then there are so many other outfit ideas for you. I will gladly talk to you about them or you can check out our blog on finding outfits for your photoshoot.
“A boudoir shoot is an investment and I don’t have all the. money right now”.
Yes, a boudoir shoot is an investment. It is an investment in yourself. You are investing in your well-being and confidence as well. We do offer payment plans!
