I believe that every woman deserves to feel confident and beautiful in her own skin. It was one of the reasons why I got into boudoir photography in the first place. I wanted to show women just how amazing they really are. It can be hard to see yourself in that light but seeing yourself on the back of the camera opens up your eyes to how people really see you!
With social media these days, it’s so easy to get caught in the comparison trap. We see so many different men and women when we are scrolling, it’s easy to start comparing yourself to their highlight reel and not even notice. We then have a vision of ourselves in our head that just isn’t true. That’s why I love being able to capture my client’s raw beauty. Due to the nature of boudoir, there aren’t many layers that you can hide behind. It’s just you! If you are thinking of ways to really celebrate who you are, I can’t recommend enough how booking a boudoir session is perfect for that. Here are a few ways to really celebrate yourself during your session.
Is there anything better than pampering yourself? I always tell my clients to use this session to really pamper yourself. It’s the perfect time to treat yourself to a manicure and pedicure, hair and makeup, and whatever else you may want to do that feels good for you. Whether you want to pamper yourself with a treatment, a new haircut or maybe even a new lingerie set, do something that is going to make you feel good! I want you to feel your best in front of the camera!
Feel Good In Your Skin
I encourage all women and men to love the skin that they are in. You don’t have to have a makeover or lose weight before your session, all you need is yourself - exactly how you are today. Choose items to wear that you feel your best in. This will help you feel your very best the day of your session. If you know you love your hair straight, wear your hair straight! I promise that the images will be beautiful no matter what, but I want you feeling like yourself at your very best.
A Gift For Yourself
Remember, you don’t need a partner to do a boudoir session! You don’t need to gift the images to anyone - a boudoir session is the perfect gift to give yourself to feel empowered and confident in your own skin. Most of my clients that gift the images to someone end up saying that the session itself was like a gift for them. The confidence that they gain and the experience itself was what changed their perspective on just how beautiful they really are.
Boudoir is such an intimate experience that most people think you need to do it for your partner. But, I challenge you to do it for you! It is the perfect way to celebrate yourself, just the way you are today.
