Is boudoir photography right for you?

Maybe you’ve just heard about boudoir, or maybe you’ve been thinking about it and aren’t sure if you want to try it. You might look at the photos and think, I could never look like that. Those women thought so too, and that is just one of the benefits of boudoir.

Every woman that comes into my studio has body image issues. They may not like their cellulite or stretch marks. Some want bigger chests or may not like their butt. Some want to lose weight and others wish they could gain some. From scars to birthmarks I’ve heard it all …

These woman are their own worst critics, even though you or I would look at them and see them as beautiful!

And I’m willing to bet, if you are afraid to move forward it is because your inner voice is telling you not to. I want you to know that inner critic is lying to you and trying to hold you back. A boudoir experience is about empowerment and self-love. One of the biggest benefits of boudoir is the boost in your self-image. That can have a massive impact on how you live your life! So rather than think negatively about yourself, let’s look at the benefits boudoir can provide …

The 7 Benefits Of Boudoir:


1. Boudoir Nurtures A Positive Self-Image

You’ve heard the saying “How we think affects how we feel.” A negative self-image can cause depression, social withdrawal, failed relationships and more.

Boudoir photography helps you to see yourself through another set of eyes. Instead of looking for perceived flaws, you get to see the whole, beautiful woman that you are.

A positive self-images boosts your physical, mental and emotional health. And this leads to the second benefit of boudoir …

2. Boudoir Improves Self-Confidence

Armed with a positive self-image, your self-confidence will be through the roof. And it should be!

The boudoir experience allowed you to defeat your inner critic. You stepped out of your comfort zone and succeeded. (And you will succeed!)

You’ll know your inner voice lied to you. You are beautiful, you are sexy, you deserve the best and now you see that. You’ll be more confident at work, with friends and with your partner. Confidence will spill into every area of your life.

The best part of it is, when your inner voice tries to take over your thought patterns again, you will have picture proof. Just pull out your boudoir album, look at your photos and stop that critic in it’s tracks!

Benefits of Boudoir

3. Boudoir Is Affirming

The quote: “You’ve tried criticizing yourself for years and it hasn’t worked. Try approving of yourself and see what happens.” is one of my favorites.

Your boudoir photoshoot is a way to let go of the “one days.”

  • “One day I’ll be ready …”
  • “One day when I’ve lost weight …”
  • “One day when I’m in better shape …”

Imagine deciding you are fine the way you are. You decide to stop waiting to be something else.

I’m not saying you shouldn’t try to eat healthy, exercise and take care of yourself. I’m saying you don’t have to wait for “one day” to appreciate yourself. Your boudoir session can help you walk out from under that cloud of self-doubt and step into the light.

4. Boudoir Gives You The Courage To Be Vulnerable

It takes a strong woman to be unapologetically herself. A boudoir experience happens in a safe, supportive, no-judgement zone. You will be embracing yourself and your body in a way that may be new to you. You’ll be stepping out of your comfort zone in front of a camera. And you will need to trust your photographer.

When you see the results of your session, you’ll lift your head high and know that by becoming vulnerable you grew as a woman. You’ll feel proud and powerful in a way that will provide a positive impact on your life.

5. Boudoir Helps You Remember Who You Are

“Do you remember who you were before the world told you who you should be?”

Another benefit of boudoir is that it shows your authentic self. Not what others want you to be, or think you should be. It is a celebration of you, all you have done and all you will do. It displays your strength, your beauty, your sensuality and your femininity.

You do so much for others that taking the time to rediscover yourself will create an amazing feeling of empowerment.

6. Boudoir Helps You Feel Beautiful Again

Better than a trip to the beauty parlor or spa, a boudoir photoshoot helps you feel beautiful AND rediscover your natural beauty!

Your experience starts in makeup and hair, where a professional makeup artist becomes your personal stylist. Then your personal photographer will guide you through your session, coaching you and encouraging you every step of the way.

Seeing the unedited images as you progress through the photoshoot will build your confidence. You’ll realize you are still sexy, still feminine and definitely worth this treat! Best of all you’ll learn to love yourself and your body all over again.

It is a day of pampering, glamour and fun that will create a memory that lasts a lifetime.

7. Boudoir Helps Improve Relationships

When you accept and love yourself, you open your heart to loving others on a deeper scale. The self-esteem and confidence provided by the experience gives you courage to strengthen your bond with your partner.

Feeling better about yourself will make you a happier person, one who can raise the spirits of others and lift their friends up.

Most importantly, it will deepen your relationship with yourself. Boudoir photography is a step forward on the path to self-love, self-worth and self-acceptance.

It may sound crazy that there are so many positive benefits of boudoir. You may have trouble wrapping your thoughts around how a photoshoot could be so empowering. So don’t take my word for it, read reviews and watch the video testimonials from my clients.
