5 Reasons to do a Boudoir Session
To boudoir or not to boudoir? That is the question. You’ve been toying with the idea for some time, and for whatever reason, are having some doubts. And we’re here to tell you — with total confidence: yes, you should book that photo shoot. In fact, you’re bound to come out the other side with a slew of rewards for having taken the risk.
Still on the fence? Here are our top reasons why you should do a boudoir photo shoot.
If you think you don’t have the confidence to do boudoir, then you should do boudoir. We are all self-conscious. Boudoir pushes women to get out of their comfort zone and be courageous, which can be empowering. As a perk, you have some beautiful images you can either keep for yourself or give to your partner afterward.
MARK A MILESTONE
Brides book boudoir shoots for various occasions, but almost all want to capture a turning point in their life. Sometimes it's a beautiful album to gift to your partner the night before the wedding. Or a maternity boudoir to document the growth of a child, the changing of their body. These are the seasons of life that shape you—the moments you want to remember.
IT SHOWS YOU WHY YOU SHOULD LOVE YOUR BODY
While we sometimes hate seeing ourselves in the mirror or on camera, viewing yourself from another perspective builds self-esteem. It teaches you to be easier on yourself. To someone else, you are the most beautiful person on the planet. Boudoir provides a window that enables you to see yourself in the same positive, sexy light in which others view you.
BRINGING YOU CLOSER TO A LOVED ONE
Boudoir is about letting walls down, and whomever you let in will become significantly closer to you. It takes trust and love to share your body with someone, so perhaps pose with your loved one, and you’ll forget the camera is even there. But in the end you will have a permanent reminder of that intimate moment.
YOU'LL HAVE A GREAT TIME!
Even if you’re nervous when you get to the studio, eventually those nerves will melt away. If you're unhappy with your body, ask your photographer to start slow. Start with more modest outfit choices, maybe a robe or an undone wedding dress. By the end of the session, you'll be guiding yourself through poses without the photographer even prompting them!
