We hear a lot of reasons women feel they “can’t” do a boudoir session. Reminder ladies!
BOUDOIR IS FOR ALL
That’s why we’re ready to bust up some myths revolving the “right” way to do a boudoir session!
Maybe you’re thinking, “I’d love to do a session but I’m not in my 20’s anymore… this isn’t for women my age.”
Ummm, you’re kidding yourself, sis! Women are like wine, we get better as we age. Grey hair is no longer ‘taboo’ and even celebrities are letting their fillers dissolve and are embracing their natural grace. There is NO better time than the present to capture your beauty and to preserve it for the rest of time.
If you’ve had some kids and your skin is a little loose, that’s normal. Boobs no longer touch your chin? Normal! If you’ve gained and lost weight and there’s a little ‘extra,’ it’s all natural!
Your body tells a story about the journey you have been on. It is OK to celebrate where you are, right now, without a reason in the world except to embrace and love yourself. And I hope you do.
I had a client tell me, “I’m not getting any younger — I want to look back on these photos 5-10 years from now and remember how beautiful I was, even when I don’t believe it right now.” THIS is the energy we want all of our clients to feel before their session.
TRUTH: Being a bad bitch is possible at ANY age!
Granted, it may seem like the camera is adding a little extra something, but when it comes down to it, the real culprit, is posing! Anytime you take a subject from a 3D figure to a 2D rendering, there are certain curves and shadows that get sacrificed, making it seem like a completely different person sometimes. But have no fear when we’re the ones behind the camera!
We have trained tirelessly to have the perfect poses for every body type to help every woman show off her favorite features. Sure your hair, makeup, and stunning outfit are there to help accentuate your natural beauty, but posing is also a huge part of this! Purposefully positioning your body to accentuate the areas you love will make all the difference when you’re admiring your photos.
TRUTH: *bad posing* is what’s making you view your body in a whole different way!
Boudoir is about YOU.
Every client comes in with a unique vision in mind for their photos. If you want to dial up the sexiness, great! If you want to keep things sweet and innocent, that’s great too! Some clients start off wanting too keep things flirty, but decide to slowly get more sultry as they get more comfortable with us. The bottom line is, your session style is 100% up to you!
We are here to create the images that YOU want to see and treasure. Boudoir is about celebrating you and your body in whatever ways you wish!
TRUTH: Boudoir sessions are about whatever YOU want them to be!
While gifting your photos to your special someone after your session can be a plus, most of our clients shoot boudoir primarily for themselves! The list of reasons to celebrate with a boudoir session is endless, but here a just a few of our most common boudoir “whys”…
-For your birthday-
-To document your body pre or post weight loss-
-To celebrate finally feeling confident in your body-
-To celebrate your engagement-
-To celebrate your divorce/breakup-
-To document your body after a major surgery-
-To feel more familiar and confident in your postpartum body-
-Because you feel like it!-
TRUTH: ANY reason is a good reason to do boudoir – as long as it’s for you!
Just look at the gallery below of all of the beautiful women that took the chance and celebrated their bodies for their own special reasons.
