      8 Reasons Why You Should Do a Boudoir Shoot


      Why should I have a boudoir session? Here are 8 reasons why, in my experience, every woman needs a boudoir photo shoot.

      I have written about the experience of my first boudoir photo shoot and how it helped my friend see herself differently than what she’d been made to feel about herself. It gave her the strength she needed to move on with life. Since then, I’ve worked with women and have seen how a boudoir photo shoot has changed their lives. In my experience, here are 8 reasons why every woman needs a boudoir photo shoot.

      1. You’re Getting Married!

      First off, congratulations! Getting married is the most common reason to have a boudoir photo shoot and why not? Boudoir pictures presented in a beautiful album to your future husband or wife represents the perfect wedding gift. The two of you can go through the keepsake photo album together and fondly remember all the moments that led to your partner falling in love with you. It is the reason why boudoir shoots are a part of an overall wedding photography package.

      2. You’ve Met Your Fitness Goals.

      Much like the way a bride would gift a boudoir album to her partner on her wedding day so to many women want to gift themselves boudoir pictures when they meet a fitness goal they’ve worked hard to meet. You can through your boudoir pictures at any time and see proof not only did you meet your goals but also exceeded your expectations with seeing just how amazing you look.

      3. Embrace Your Curves

      It’s important to show your body and its curves all the love you can give. A boudoir photo shoot is a healthy way of affirming this love and expressing a body positive attitude that we can be healthy at every size. That means you don’t need to wait until you’ve lost weight for a boudoir photo shoot.

      4. You Made it Through

      Life throws everyone challenges. Then some challenges test our will and our spirits. Those challenges could include battling an illness or a disease, dealing with toxic people and being in toxic relationships. I know from experience that when you’re in it you don’t feel like you’re much of anything, let alone anything worthwhile. But, you made it through.

      5. A Boudoir Photo Shoot Will Empower You!

      You will continue to make it through. It’s amazing what pictures from a boudoir session can do to remind you of who you are and that person above all else is strong. Strong IS beautiful – show the strong woman you are how much you love the spirit that pulled you through those dark times.

      6. You’re in a New Relationship!

      And that is with yourself.

      Expressing love for yourself is important, especially after ending a relationship. A boudoir photo shoot is a perfect opportunity to make a reintroduction to the woman you still are. The one that is in need of no one else. You will feel assured so as long as you have you, you’ll never feel without.

      7. Pamper Yourself

      Showing yourself some love involves making time in your time to take care of your needs, your desires. A boudoir photo shoot is a perfect opportunity to get tended to by hair and makeup artists. That way, when you finally get in front of the camera you’ll feel sexy, glamorous, and most of all, you’ll feel comfortable.

      So, treat yourself to a Queen for a Day experience and enjoy!

      8. Because You’re Sexy and You Know it.

      I have a friend who is in her 40s and is a working model. Her reasons for going for it in her 40s is because she could.

      Out of all the reasons to have a boudoir photo shoot, the most important reason is that you could, as you are, at this moment. It’s a great way to celebrate yourself! My friend did not allow for anything to discourage her from doing what made her happy and neither should you.

      You are beautiful as you are and are ready to go for it.

      There you have it. 8 reasons why, in my experience, every woman needs a boudoir photo shoot.

      Yes, I do mean need. I wrote about how the definition of boudoir is a woman’s private dressing room, where she can retreat and be alone and reconnect with herself. The 8 reasons I provide all emphasize the importance of reconnecting with yourself. Boudoir photographers are adept at this.
