Every woman who comes to my studio for a boudoir photo session has her own reason why.
It might be to celebrate an upcoming birthday, anniversary or to capture an especially joyful time in her life. Or it might be to commemorate the end of a cancer battle, reaching a place of healing after a divorce or a milestone birthday.
Let me ask you a question….
When was the last time you did something that was TRULY just for you?
Sadly, most of us can’t remember OR it has definitely been way to long.
So let’s change that….let’s do something that is completely about YOU!
I know what you are going to say…
I need to lose weight first
I am not photogenic enough
It’s selfish to spend time and money on myself
I’m sure you can come up with a million excuses for why you SHOULDN’T do a boudoir session, so I am going to give you 10 reasons why you NEED to do one…now!
1. PHOTOGRAPHY AS A FORM OF SELF CARE
Life moves fast. Jobs, kids, & relationships make a great portion of our lives... But when was the last time you did something just for you? 🤔. It’s time you take care of ourself and do something truly for you.
2. SEE YOURSELF IN A NEW LIGHT
We know every single woman is a shining star 💫It’s time to see yourself in an extraordinary new light. We’re wives, moms, girlfriends, employees, daughters, friends…and we often find ourselves feeling stuck in these roles of being everything to everyone. Boudoir photos will show your most authentic, gorgeous self – the way others see you but how you fail to see yourself.
3. THE PERFECT GIFT FOR YOU SIGNIFICANT OTHER
It’s the most personal, intimate gift you can give yourself or your partner, who loves you exactly the way you are. Just imagine the look on their face when they open the album you created, filled with gorgeous images of you. You will have to pick their jaw up off the floor. Boudoir is not only a great gift to GIVE someone….but more importantly, it’s a perfect gift to give YOURSELF! It serves as a constant reminder of just how beautiful you are.
4. CELEBRATE A MILESTONE
Marriage, divorce, children, and upcoming birthday…. All are great reasons to celebrate. Celebrate yourself, your journey, and your milestone!
5. A REASON TO BUY THAT LINGERIE YOU'VE BEEN EYEING
You know the one! It’s probably sitting in your shopping cart right now. being able to buy something you LOVE to wear for your shoot is huge! Every time you see it in your drawer after your shoot (or better yet, every time you wear it!!) you’re going to get those rockstar vibes right back!

6. HELP YOURSELF HEAL
Help yourself heal. You’ve survived whatever struggle or loss life threw at you, and you’re a stronger person for it. Celebrating you and what you’ve been through is an important step in the healing process.
7. YOU ARE PERFECT NOW
You are perfect now. Not 20 pounds thinner or 10 years younger or three kids less stressed out. Now.
Don’t put your life on hold because of how you feel about your body. Life is happening right now. You are beautiful right now. Don’t let the body 10 years ago stop you from embracing your beauty and strength today.
8. YOU'LL LOOK AND FEEL AMAZING
You know that feeling when you’ve got the dress on, hair and make up done up, and you slip into those heels. YES! That feeling. Where you are just glowing and ready to take on the world. Well, we help you achieve that feeling. From professional hair and makeup to guided posing, you’ll look and feel your best. You’ll get to look back on those photos for years to come and remember how that felt.
9. YOU ARE ENOUGH
Far too often we feel we fall short, of our expectations, the expectations of others, or society standards. But it’s not true! It’s a lie we’ve come to accept and I’m here to tell you that voice in your head that says that is wrong. YOU ARE ENOUGH!
10. YOU DESERVE IT
You’ve taken care of everyone else around you. Now it’s your time. Come in, be pampered, sip mimosas, and relax. This is all about you today! You deserve this!
