A boudoir session is more than just beautiful photos of yourself; it’s a life-changing experience that encourages you to love the skin you’re in and embrace it. It celebrates you! They reflect not only your outward beauty but also the strength to radiate the light within you. Many women expressed how they felt confident in a way that they hadn’t in a long time after their session.
Boudoir photography is a uniquely intimate style of photography that captures the subject in a way that appears flattering through lighting and posing angles. For many women, it’s a confidence-boosting experience with beautiful lingerie and implied nudity photographed elegantly.
There’s so much pressure for women to look and act a certain way to be acceptable in society. Building self-compassion and embracing who you are as a woman may come as a challenge, especially with all the expectations of being (fill in the blanks) that this world calls women to be. Boudoir tackles head-on how to love our bodies to counter negative messages in media and society.
Learning to love our bodies is probably one of the most significant accomplishments we can make in our life. Loving your body is about self-talk but also about self-respect. Be your best friend and treat your body the way you treat your child or best friend. Be kind, compassionate, and supportive.
Boudoir not only helps women to practice self-love by appreciating their bodies but also leads to improved self-esteem and higher self-confidence. Unfortunately, no matter who you are, at some point, we all suffer from the same negative assertions of ourselves. Whether you feel like you are too big or too thin, boudoir photography can absolutely help you to see yourself in a new way and help you to start appreciating what your body has done for you.
Imagining yourself in lingerie and scantily clad can be scary… and feeling vulnerable in this respect is entirely understandable. That’s why we ask questions and discuss comfort levels before we even start shooting. Through experienced posing, lighting, and angles, we’re able to highlight or hide what you want to show in your images.
From the moment you arrive, you’ll experience a double makeover in a serene environment. You’ll be pampered and tended to. Many women forget what it’s like to feel served, cared for, appreciated, and recognized for their busy schedules. What better way to rejuvenate your mind, body, and soul than through a boudoir shoot and glam session? When you fill up your cup and care for yourself, you’ll be better equipped to do so for your loved ones. Everyone will benefit, and you’ll thank yourself for it!
While many clients come to me to curate an artistic album for their significant other for an upcoming celebration, birthday, wedding anniversary, or wedding gift, many women have expressed how profound and valuable having a boudoir experience is. Some women feel even more beautiful in boudoir than in wedding photos because it positively changes how they see themselves and the confidence boost they feel during and after the process. Yes, it’s 100% worth it!
Boudoir photos are unique in being able to reflect on twenty, thirty, or forty years and look back at the person you were at that point in your life.
Is a session like this an investment? Yes, however, what will it be like to see your boudoir photos over your lifetime? How would that moment feel? On the other hand, if that gift is for your partner, what would they experience looking at those images? What a surprise to receive an elegant and intimate gift such as this!
Some women do a boudoir session as a milestone celebration when meeting nutritional and health goals before or after becoming a mother, leaving a toxic relationship, or starting over. It’s a great way to discover your inner strength, beauty, and ability to adapt and change in an empowering way.
You are a true work of art, and I’m here to help you see it.
