Why should I do a bouoir shoot?
When was the last time you felt good in your own skin? Had a moment just for yourself? Or looked at your own portrait and were amazed by the way you looked?
If it’s been a while, boudoir photography may be just what you need. There are countless reasons why boudoir photography is just what the doctor ordered. Here’s the top five:
1) It’s a self-love experience
Boudoir is a celebration of you. Your body and everything about you that makes you special. Who you are inside and out. As women, we sometimes aren’t pleased with the person looking back at us in the mirror and we have an urge to create unrealistic images in our heads of what we should look like. We may even feel the urge to “perfect” ourselves until we reach that goal.
Right or wrong, we have an image in our heads of what we should look like. Your body tells a story and each image in your boudoir photography shoot represents a chapter of you. No two bodies are the same, and that is what I love most about a woman’s body. Laugh lines, loose skin, freckles, moles, hair color, and a million other features make up the story of you. I want each woman to embrace her body as a work of art.
I’m here to help you break down those societal norms of “beauty”. I can’t wait for you to see how beautiful you are. You can see some of my clients who have experienced this in my boudoir gallery.
2) It serves as the biggest confidence boost
For many women, the thought of having photographs taken in their lingerie can be overwhelming. I’ve found these feelings are driven by fear, anxiety, and presumed judgment of what they think they would look like.
The whole experience, from the moment you enter my studio to when you leave, is custom tailored for you to feel like the badass queen that you are. This experience is all about you. Building your confidence and showing you a side of yourself that you don’t know exists.
With my experience, you’ll never have to stress about what to wear, or how to do your makeup. Our team styles you to perfection, from hair to a specialized look that’s all you Plus, we’re serving up tasty libations —if you choose to partake— while we create a spa-like experience to prep for your shoot. To complete your look, you’ll have access to our client closet that has a mix of trendy and classic lingerie for you to choose.
Throughout your session , I’ll show you some of the shots that I’m taking. This is designed to bring out your confidence in real time. I’ve watched clients go from shy and reserved, to full confidence and flair. This is an experience you NEED to give to yourself. I’m positive that you will walk out of my studio more confident, uplifted, and ready to take on the world.
3)It’s the perfect gift or milestone celebration
Many of my clients do a boudoir session to celebrate a milestone in their relationship or as a gift to themselves. Some common milestones we’ve seen celebrated are: getting married, losing weight, self-acceptance, pregnancy, overcoming postpartum depression, being newly single, or starting a fresh chapter.
We’ve seen it as a unique gift for yourself or your partner. This session value goes beyond short-term excitement. It is truly a celebration of life that you’ll have recorded for the rest of your life.
If this is a gift for your spouse or significant other, you’ll share this moment with them and they’ll never forget the moment they see your photos. Weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, or just because surprises are great reasons to book a session.
4) It will unleash your femininity
Capturing tasteful, intimate, and sometimes naughty photographs can also help you rediscover your feminine energy. Feminine energy refers to a specific set of traits, considered to be the opposite of traits associated with masculine energy.
She is soft, nurturing, and grounded. Your feminine side gets expressed when you move with the flow of life, embrace your creative energy, dance, play, and attune to your internal process.
5) Art work you will keep forever
After consulting with you on what you want to experience, we will create photographs that you will treasure forever. Whether you’re taking these for yourself or for someone special, you can put these portraits on the wall or make a beautiful photo album or a magazine out of them. These images will last a lifetime, and serve as a reminder of how beautiful you are throughout your life.
