How Boudoir Photography Boosts Confidence
Boudoir photography has a remarkable ability to boost confidence, even if that sounds counter-intuitive.
I know it looks like every woman I photograph must have the self-confidence of a supermodel. But I’ll let you in on a little secret. They don’t. They’re normal everyday women like me and you who struggle with insecurities, have too much on their to-do lists, and have let their self-care and self-confidence slip away too.
If that sounds like you, you’re not alone. And it’s nothing to be ashamed or embarrassed about.
When we forget to take care of ourselves, our self-confidence can start to diminish. But I’m gonna share three ways a boudoir photography session can help you boost your self-confidence.
Ready? It’ll have you ready to slip into some sexy lingerie tonight!
Three Ways Boudoir Photography Boosts Self Confidence
Number 1: We’re Bringing Sexy Back with Boudoir Photos and Lingerie
When was the last time you slipped into some sexy lingerie just because you wanted to feel good? It’s one of the easiest things to do to feel a boost in your self-confidence.
You may want to try it out before your boudoir photoshoot just for fun! One of my friends from Ohio recently told me that she bought herself lingerie to wear (just for her) after reading my blogs! I was flattered and also so proud of her for getting her sexy back!
Justin Timberlake might’ve coined the phrase “I’m bringing sexy back,” - but I help women FEEL their sexy come back alive in boudoir photos, and I’d say that’s even better!
You know how great you feel after a day at the hair salon or having a mani or pedi? Boudoir photoshoots are like that - but on steroids! I’m your hype woman, and I’ll help you pick the best pieces of lingerie from our client closet that will accentuate all your best ASSets!
We’ll start your boudoir session out really slow, and I’ll show you exactly what to do. I’ll also share sneak peeks of your photos as we’re moving along during your session so you can see what I see. It gives you instant gratification and a confidence boost to really let loose.
Sharing photos as we move through sessions is one of my favorite parts of shoots. I get to see women light up with excitement, asking, “Is that really me?” Yes, babe. That’s you!
Number 2: Tackle Body Insecurities with Boudoir Photography
You know what's incredible about boudoir photography? It's like flipping the switch on your insecurities. All those doubts and insecurities? They melt away as you move through your session and embrace being vulnerable.
Sometimes women see themselves a certain way, but once I show you what I’ve captured in my camera, it helps you see what I see! It's a moment of revelation where you realize that your own self-perception might have been a tad off. Those so-called flaws? They're not flaws at all.
Suddenly you're no longer nervous or covering up body parts. Instead, you're celebrating every curve and every inch of your gorgeous self. AS. YOU. SHOULD!
And if there are specific areas you don’t want in your final prints, guess what? I’ll photoshop those out. I won’t airbrush you so you don’t look like yourself. But if there are a few dimples of cellulite you want gone - you’ve got it.
Number 3: Creating a Long-Lasting Positive Memory
Let's be real—memories fade, but a boudoir photoshoot? It's a memory that sticks with you.
Remember that wild woman you were in your youth? We’re gonna bring her out during your boudoir shoot! Were you more on the shy side? That’s okay too. We’ll bring out the sexy woman you’ve always been hiding.
Long after the shoot is over, whenever self-doubt tries to creep in, you can reach for those sexy photos and be reminded of the amazing, fierce, and beautiful woman you are.
You'll always look back on your boudoir photo experience and remember the feeling of liberation and confidence. Your images become more than just pictures. They’re a reminder of your journey towards self-love and the moments when you truly owned your power.
So, the next time self-doubt tries to knock you down, you can look at those photos and say, "Damn, I am unstoppable!”
