No More Excuses: Why You Deserve a Boudoir Experience

Filed in: Boudoir Tips  —  January 28


When we are uncomfortable, we make excuses. Life gets busy, things are crazy at work, we need to spend time with the kids or a spouse…there’s always something else more important than taking time to love and care for ourselves. We also come up with excuses like, “I need to wait a few months so I can lose 10 pounds first,” or “I don’t have that kind of money to spend on myself right now.” I want you to know that no matter the excuse, you can do this! You are worth it!

“I don’t have enough time for myself”

It’s important to remember that if you don’t take care of yourself, you’re not going to be in the right place to take care of everything else! I know how hard it is to find time to just breathe and allow yourself to be the priority. I make excuses too, and it’s so much easier to do all the things for my kids or my family or house projects before I set aside time for myself. But honestly, I feel so much better when I set aside time for myself and allow myself to enjoy something special just for me. I am happier, rejuvenated and then able to give some of that positive energy back to the people in my life. 

boudoir session is all about focusing on you. You are able to be pampered a bit, and then relax and just love yourself for the day. You get to see where your beauty comes from, and that power and confidence radiates out into the world after your photo session. We all need to take time for ourselves, so why not spend a day getting glammed up, feeling beautiful and connecting with your body?

“I’m not where I want to be with my weight”

Did you know only 5% of American women have the body type portrayed in American advertising? We are constantly bombarded by images of women that do not actually show what the majority of women look like…and it’s so frustrating! No two women are the same, and we are all beautiful in the bodies we have! Women’s bodies are amazing…think about all that they do for us! We bring life into the world and sustain that life with our bodies! There is no reason to compare your body to anyone else. Just remember all that your body has done for you and understand that loving your body means loving yourself.

I have been on my own health journey as I’ve aged, so I think it’s great to have goals and work towards a healthy lifestyle, but that doesn’t mean you should hate your body to get there. You should love yourself and your body every step of the way, wherever you are at this point in your life! Be proud of where you are, and be proud of where you are going. A boudoir session is a way to celebrate yourself exactly where you are right now. And then, whenever you reach that weight goal, you can have another photo session and celebrate again!

“I never feel sexy or I don’t own lingerie, so a boudoir session isn’t for me”

This excuse is exactly the reason why you should do a boudoir shoot. It’s so easy to get caught up in the day to day craziness of life and lose touch with our feminine side. And if you’ve been in a relationship for a while it’s common for our sexuality to get a bit lost. This is absolutely normal! A boudoir shoot is an amazing way to reconnect with your sensual side. I will show you that side of you is still in there. Sometimes a little confidence boost is all we need to bring back that spark! 

And remember that your boudoir session is a collaboration and meant to be a reflection of who you are. If you don’t feel comfortable in lingerie, you can bring other items to the session. A lot of women actually feel more comfortable nude than in lingerie. If you want to wear lingerie but don’t own anything, we have so many options in our lingerie closet, so there is no need to worry about that! I’ll help you figure out how you define sexy, and we’ll photograph you in whatever you feel comfortable and sexy wearing.

“A boudoir session is an investment and I don’t have all the money right now”

Yes, a boudoir photos shoot is an investment, but it is an investment in yourself. You are investing in your well-being and confidence, and you are absolutely worth it! And you will have your photos after the session to remind you of just how gorgeous and beautiful you are. We do offer interest-free payment plans which allows women with all different budgets to do a shoot. If you have questions about our payment plans, please get in touch and I can explain how it works! We’d love to hear from you!
