There are so many reasons why you should consider boudoir photos and I came across one of these reasons recently! Here’s the story:
I was driving home from the gym the other night and Ryan Seacrest was hosting his radio show. He told people to call in with “something good” that happened to them recently. It could be anything happy or exciting or special. People called in with a variety of things (daughter moved up a level in ballet, work promotion, etc.) but there was one caller who said something a little different and I want to share it with you all.
This women called in and said,
“I had recently been going through a tough time. I had been feeling really down on myself – low confidence, low self esteem. I have three kids and I had just not been feeling it lately and had been feeling really bad about myself.”
She then says,
“So I went and got a boudoir shoot done. Just the other day I went and saw my photos and I was blown away! I couldn’t believe the woman in those photos was me! Doing a boudoir session restored my self confidence and made me feel really great about myself!”
I got so excited listening to this! I was practically shouting at the radio, “Yes!! That is what I try and tell people!”
This woman obviously felt so changed and moved by her boudoir session that she felt motivated to call into a radio station and tell the world. A boudoir session was her “something good.” A boudoir session changed her outlook on herself!
This is why I love boudoir so much. Everyone has self doubt, even if it’s just a little bit. But what if there was something you could do to change that? Wouldn’t you do it? I mean, this woman sounded emotional and moved by her experience and to be honest, still a little surprised by the fact that the woman in those photos was her. I wish you all could have heard her! I want to share this experience with you because I know there will always be an excuse:
“I need to lose those last 5/10/20/30 pounds.”
“I don’t have a significant other.”
“I’m not pretty enough/skinny enough/fit enough/etc.”
“What will people think??”
“I’m too shy.”
The excuses are endless but you already know what your excuse is.
NOW is the time to do your boudoir session. Celebrate yourself in this stage in life. Who says you have to do only ONE session in your entire life?? (Because I’m saying you should do several.) There is always something you love about yourself and if there’s not, you need to book me like yesterday because I’ll show you what you have going on! Boudoir is about finding that sexy, beautiful, confident woman that sometimes gets buried under all of life’s crap. But she isn’t gone and trust me, I can pull that vixen out of you and when you get those photos back, just like the woman on the radio, you’ll be amazed that you are looking at yourself!
Confidence is the sexiest thing you can wear and boudoir gives you an amazing foundation to continue to find value in yourself. It takes a brave woman to peel off all the layers (both physically and emotionally) but I know you can do it! And I’m there for you every step of the way.
