I feel like I need to revisit some of the excuses I get from women as to why they won’t/wouldn’t/shouldn’t do a boudoir session. The 2 biggest misconceptions and negative responses I come across about boudoir photography is that you have to have a partner/spouse/boyfriend to take the photos for and that you have to look like a model to do a session.
Newsflash, you can do the session just for you. Shocking, right? You can actually do something that empowers you just for you. Even if you have a partner. Why wouldn’t you want to feel like a goddess, just for yourself? Why wouldn’t you want to spend a few hours just on you? Why does there need to be anyone else involved on your journey to self discovery and self confidence? Will you be less beautiful, kick ass or loved if you do the session just for you? NO. I think you actually get more out of a boudoir or fine art session if you’re doing the images just for yourself because you take away that self doubt of “Will they like the photos? Will they think I’m sexy?”. You don’t need that validation, you should already feel sexy & confident from your boudoir session. If your partner thinks you’re sexier after seeing the photos that’s just an added bonus. If it improves your self life with previously mentioned partner, well that’s just another added bonus from your boudoir or fine art session. What is most important is do you feel sexier after seeing your photos or experiencing a boudoir session? That’s what matters. And I want you to respond with a resounding YES! to that question. I want you to look in the mirror after your boudoir session and see a more confident, self aware, self loving goddess. I want you to shake off the seld doubt and negative thinking.
As for the misconception that you have to look like a model to do a boudoir session, that you have to lose 5-10-20lbs or another totally arbitrary goal, WHY? Wouldn’t it be fucking amazing to love yourself as you are today? Wouldn’t that be worth so much more? I offer discounts for returning clients so do the boudoir session NOW and then you can lose that weight or whatever else is holding you back and come back and do another transformative session with me. Chart your progress through boudoir! And if you don’t lose that 10lbs? What if it didn’t matter? What if you were happier and more confident than you were 2 weeks ago, a month ago, a year ago but still had that 10lbs? That would be amazing, right? It could change your whole outlook on life. Don’t wait for someday. Someday doesn’t always come. It may be eternally out of your reach. Embrace the now and start loving yourself for YOU.
Celebrate yourself today. Love yourself today. Embrace yourself today. You are worth it. Own it. Love it. Live it.
