TOP 5 REASONS YOU SHOULD DA A BOUDOIR SHOOT
Updated: Nov 7, 2019
TO BOUDOIR OE 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. The idea of stripping down to your unmentionables and posing for a photographer may be intimidating, and understandably so. But with a pro behind the camera and a little preparation, it’s totally possible for you to have an empowering and downright enjoyable experience. So yes, you should book that photoshoot. 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 5 reasons why you should do a boudoir photoshoot.
1. IT'S EMPOWERING
We all have insecurities, and those insecurities can get the better of us when we unknowingly start to obsess over them. A boudoir photoshoot can be just the thing to remind you: you are beautiful just as you are. That part of yourself that you wish was a little bit smaller, or bigger, or longer, or rounder, all fades away when you see how fabulous you really look and how unnoticeable that “imperfection” really is. Professional hair and makeup, a professional photographer, and professional retouching equals some of the best portraits of yourself that you will ever see. I often tell my clients to schedule a night out after getting their portraits done, because they will look and feel amazing! Plus getting treated like a celebrity for a few hours is great therapy for anyone! Waiting to lose that last 5, 10, or 15 pounds? DON’T! Professional photographers know exactly how to pose you to flatter your individual body type and just wait until you get to see the photographs for the first time. You will be blown away. You will see how gorgeous you really are and it will defiantly put a little pep in your step!
2. IT'S AN AMAZING GIFT FOR YOUR SIGNIFICANT OTHER,
Take a moment and imagine the look on your significant others face when they open a photo album to this sexy surprised the woman they love in some luxe lingerie posing like a professional model. There’s hardly a more intimate gift to your husband-to-be, significant other, or spouse. After all, they already think you look gorgeous in your yoga pants and a messy bun. Even if you’re not planning this shoot as a gift, you owe it to yourself to play glamour girl for a day, getting pampered by a professional hairstylist and/or makeup artist and sporting some seductive lace underthings you may not normally slip-on. Be pampered. Indulge. Love every minute!
3. IT'S AN EXCUSE TO BUY NEW LINGERIE
Let's be honest we all love a reason to go shopping, and a boudoir photoshoot is exactly that. After all, you’ll want to find lingerie that enhances your body by accentuating all the parts you love the most. Lingerie shopping is something that some of us feel guilty doing. And booking a boudoir shoot gives you an excuse to take the time to hunt down those pieces that will really work for you. The best part? All of the great pieces you purchase can make other appearances in more intimate settings!
4. IT'S A BLAST
The right photographer will make sure you feel comfortable throughout the shoot and will keep the mood light, offering words of encouragement and likely a few laughs. To boost the fun factor even further, make it a girls’ day. Invite a couple of your best gal pals along to sip some bubbly on set and cheer you on from the sidelines. You can even bring them along for your lingerie shopping ahead of the shoot to get their honest opinions on any purchases.
5. IT'S A WAY TO CELEBRATE
Have an anniversary coming up or just scored a well-deserved promotion? Why not get this time in your life documented in a gratifying way? Not only will you have gorgeous portraits of yourself, but when you look at them you’ll remember how amazing this time in your life was! Celebrate it! Remember that you can wear whatever makes you feel sexy and confident; a boudoir session is all about you! Don’t put it off, now is the time to indulge yourself!
