Boudoir Photography is booming in popularity. Yet many women are still unsure about taking the plunge. In this blog, we'll explore just why you should treat yourself to a shoot, and how you can buy it just for yourself.
1. Empower yourself
You better believe it. Boudoir photography is one of the most empowering experiences you can have. Image the internal relief you could experience by simply saying to yourself "I'm happy with who I am." In this relentless age of aspiring to be the girl from the poster, the woman on the advert, the model on the catwalk, taking time to simply celebrate the best of your own, natural god-given body is a joyous thing to do.
2. Pamper the Princess
Working mum. Boss lady. Carer. Teacher. Guide. Friend. Partner. Whoever you are, its our eternal belief that every woman deserves to feel like a princess (or queen. A boudoir shoot gives you that perfect excuse to pamper yourself to the nines. By making sure you shine from the inside out, you'll ensure some wonderful shots. Whether it be a superstar wardrobe, or a hair-do to marvel at, take all the time you need to feel like a goddess.
3. A Personal Pickme-Up
What better motivation can there be than your own mind and body. Every woman has those days were we don't feel quite up to conquering the world. And that's fine. But its wonderful in these occasions to have a reminder of just how fabulous you truly are. Too often we use a picture of a super-model or fitness fanatic to compare ourselves to, to motivate ourselves by. Far better be fuelled by your own internal strength and beauty than that of a stranger.
4. Celebrate a Milestone
Maybe you've just had a baby, achieved your weight loss goals or have an upcoming anniversary that means a lot to you. Make a real memory from this amazing time in your life and embrace your successes by celebrating who you are.
5. Its a chance to have a lot of fun - plus get your girls involved too!
Your photographer will make you feel extra comfortable for the whole boudoir photoshoot — but moreover, will keep the mood light, offering words of encouragement and plus a few laughs. To boost the fun of the shoot even further, make it a proper girls’ day out. Invite a couple of your best pals along to pop open the champagne on set and cheer you on from the sidelines. Why not bring them along for your lingerie shopping ahead of the shoot to get their honest opinions on your choices!
6. For the joy of challenging your body.
There'd no question about it. For many of us, a boudoir shoot is out of our daily comfort zone. The thought of such an intimate session might bright you out in a cold sweat at just the very thought. The adrenaline however, released from having the courage and strength to see this through will be a feeling like none other. Challenging ourselves is usually when we get the very best from our minds and bodies. It's great to be challenged. By challenging ourselves we learn more about our minds, abilities and personalities.
