Why Boudoir is For Every Woman

If you’ve never done a boudoir session before, it can be incredibly scary. We sometimes have a hard enough time being vulnerable with our friends and family, so stepping in front of a camera wearing almost nothing—or nothing at all—can be a level of vulnerability that is especially daunting.

But boudoir is so worth it. The opportunity to see yourself in a new light and to recognize your unique beauty can be life-changing. And every woman deserves that opportunity.

Let’s take a look at some of the most common concerns women have about doing boudoir and why they shouldn’t stop you from taking the leap.

I don’t like my body.

We all have flaws or things we don’t like about ourselves when we look in the mirror. But I’m here to tell you that there is no such thing as too thin, too heavy, too pale, too dark, etc. Every woman’s body is beautiful, and it’s your uniqueness that makes you you. And that’s something that deserves to be celebrated! Maybe you don’t like the shape of your body or the way your legs look, but when I step behind the camera, I focus on showing every woman how gorgeous she truly is.

5 Reasons You Should Do a Boudoir Session For YOU!

I have no idea how to pose “sexy.”

You may reserve all your sexiness for alone time with your partner, or maybe you just feel that you don’t know how to look hot. I’m here to tell you that you are absolutely stunning. I will walk you through every pose, helping you feel like a natural model in front of the camera, and you’ll be blown away when you see the finished product. I’ve had so many women say, “Is that really me?” in disbelief when they view their images. Leave the posing to me. I got you!

I’m afraid I won’t like my photos.

Listen, I get it: Sometimes you just don’t like the way you look in photos. Often we become too focused on our perceived flaws to appreciate what makes us beautiful. Boudoir is all about stepping beyond that perspective and showing you that even what you think of as flaws are part of your personality and beauty. I want every woman to feel beautiful not just during her session, but when she sees her images. I want you to be able to look back on these photos and say, “I am hot!”

I don’t like wearing lingerie.

Boudoir doesn’t have to involve nudity or even lingerie. It’s all about what makes you feel sexy and comfortable. For some women, that’s a baggy sweater or their partner’s button-up shirt. For others, that’s lingerie. What you wear is entirely up to you. I promise that you’ll feel gorgeous no matter what you choose to wear. Remember, you define your own sexiness. I’m just here to capture it on camera.

Boudoir doesn’t have to be a scary experience. Instead, it can be a chance to step outside of your comfort zone and really learn to love your body and appreciate what makes you beautiful. Let’s work together to make some magic!
