WHY HAVE A BOUDOIR OR BRIDAL BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHY SESSION?
There are many reasons that women come to my studio, and all of them say the same thing, that they didn't think they would be able to do this OR that they had always thought about it but never really knew where they could go to achieve the images they want.
The resounding agreement is that WOMEN WANT TO DO THIS FOR THEMSELVES (cue Annie Lennox...)
The most common refrain I hear is "OMG is that really me?" I love that moment! This really is about showing you how beautiful you really are. You don't have to conform to anyones idea of what beautifulis you just have to see your own beauty. I love to reflect that back to you.
Here are some of the reasons women tell me they have sought me out:
1. Its a gift.
Yesss, go girl! The perfect gift for a loved one, and the beauty of it is, you get an amazing experience and get to show off and share the resulting images.
2. It's a confidence boost just for me.
This is by far the best and most common reason! Maybe
a. You have recently come out of a relationship and want to reconnect with who you are and boost your self confidence.
b. You have reached a fitness goal and want to celebrate that.
c. You have a milestone birthday. The perfect gift to celebrate being 30, 40, 50, 60.... yes, really, there are no age limits on being beautiful. Have you seen Helen Mirren and how she looks sooo amazing - her secret is she is comfortable in her own skin, her beauty shines through her confidence.
d. You want a confidence boost. Women have so many roles in life and we go through so many stages. Feeling good about yourself FOR yourself is so important in the way you present yourself to others and the way they perceive you. Imagine walking past a killer image on the wall of yourself as you get ready for work/parenting/trip to the gym or out with friends. Thinking to yourself "that's me!"
3. A Boudoir session is something you have been meaning to do but you keep putting it off.....
You don't need an excuse, come and have this experience for yourself.
