One of my favorite things about boudoir photography is the way it allows women to truly love their own bodies, often for the first time. We spent most of our lives hearing how we need to lose weight, hide blemishes, avoid wrinkles, and on and on until we feel like we’ll never look how we should.
Boudoir challenges these ideas and suggests something radical: You are beautiful just the way you are. There’s nothing wrong with losing weight, eating healthy, and getting fit. In fact, those things are awesome! But you should do them so you feel better and stronger, not because advertising and the media are telling you to. Boudoir photography is all about showing the world just what you’re made of!
No matter your age, chances are you’ve had struggles, and your body may reflect some of your experiences. That’s not something to be ashamed of—it’s something to be proud of! We all have body issues, and boudoir is a great way to remind yourself of how strong and capable you are. These pictures invite you to change your thinking and to show love and respect to the body that has carried and continues to carry you through life.
Love the body you have.
Maybe you want to get fit before your photo session. That’s a great goal! But instead of setting a goal weight to reach, consider working to feel great and to be in your best shape, whatever that means for you personally. It can be so dangerous to tie your worth to your weight because you may not always be able to maintain it, and that can be devastating for your self-esteem. But a boudoir session can be an awesome and fun way to celebrate looking and feeling great in your body—and you’ll have the photos to prove it!
Show off your strength.
Whether you’ve spent months lifting weights at the gym or you’ve got a family and/or career keeping you busy, you are strong and powerful, and you deserve to feel that way. A boudoir session is a great way to remind yourself of your unique strength. In the years to come, when you face challenges and struggles, you can look back on these photos and remember just how tough you truly are.
We all have different ways of showing off our personalities and feeling at home in our skin. But if you’ve never tried boudoir, you may be surprised at how awesome it will make you feel. I love helping women see their own beauty and feel sexier than they’ve ever felt before! Strutting your stuff not only makes you feel beautiful—it makes you feel powerful and allows your unique personality to shine through!
No matter your reason for booking a session, boudoir photography can offer a boost to your self-confidence and can help you see yourself in a brand-new light. You deserve to feel amazing, to feel strong, and to love your body!
