10 Reasons Why You Should Do a Boudoir Session
I want to ask you a super important question:
WHEN IS THE LAST TIME YOU DID SOMETHING FOR YOURSELF?!
No, I don’t mean a trip to Target by yourself.
I mean TRULY something for you.
Can you remember it? Chances are…you probably can’t. Or maybe you can, but maybe it’s been a damn long time since said “thing” took place.
Let me tell you something. As women, we are really great at giving ourselves every reason under the stars on why we can’t/shouldn’t/don’t deserve something amazing for ourselves. We put everyone else ahead of ourselves, and we get left in the dust. Why do we do this to ourselves?!
I know your excuses, I’ve heard them ALL! This is why I’m here now to give you reasons TO do a boudoir session, rather than having you focus on any excuses to not do one.
You ready for this?!
1. You DESERVE this! — you’re a hard working babe!
Seriously though. I go back to my question above. When is the last time you (the busy person that you are!) did something to really spoil yourself? You work hard, you it’s high-time you play hard. You deserve to have a day that is all.about.you!
2. You’re celebrating WEIGHT LOSS! — go you! I can’t wait to celebrate with you!
Whether you’ve lost 5, 10, 15, or 75lbs, you need to celebrate your wins! EVERY win is big, and it’s an amazing time to put yourself in front and say “I DID IT!” with a kickass boudoir session. Let’s mark this milestone together!
3. You are singleeeeee! — and there is NOTHING wrong with that!
Whether you are newly out of a relationship/marriage, or if it’s been a while since you’ve been in one, it’s ABSOLUTELY ACCEPTABLE to do this for YOURSELF. In fact, 99.999999% of the women who I work with are doing it for THEM. Even if they are in a relationship, they tell me “this was all for me!” Boudoir is not always about giving photos as a gift to someone else. You know why? Because YOU are the one worth giving the gift to!
4. You’re a momma! — You made something super cute!
GIRL. Momma NEVER gets to be put first, and I know you know that! Your body has changed, your emotions occasionally go from 0 to 60 in no time, and well…momma needs to learn to love her body again. When is the last time you allowed yourself proper time to really get pampered since having your kid(s)?
5. Time isn’t slowing down! — #amiright?
I don’t want you to look back in 10 years and say “I wish I had done this when I was younger.” Believe me, I’ve heard that MANY times. And if you’re saying that right now about wishing you had done this 10 years ago, don’t make that same mistake twice! Let’s do this thang! Let’s capture you TODAY, in all of your beauty!
6. You are recovering, or have recovered — You’re a survivor and you need to know that!
Maybe chemotherapy was recently a part of your life. Maybe you’ve lost parts of you to cancer that you thought defined you as a woman. But I am here to remind you that you are an incredible person, that you have fought the damn fight and came out on top, and that you (with or without certain “parts”) are STILL YOU. Let’s celebrate your victory together, because your life is certainly one worth celebrating!
7. You’re MOVING! — Where ya goin??
Let’s mark this awesome milestone in your life! Bring something that represents where you’re going, or where you’re leaving from, and let’s incorporate it into your session! Moving is no small feat, and taking a day to yourself in the middle of the chaos is crazy-important!
8. You’re struggling to be a momma! — I can relate. Been there. Done that. It’s hard.
This time in your life can be very challenging. Maybe you’re just getting started on the road of infertility, or maybe you’re a seasoned pro. Maybe needles don’t scare you anymore because you’ve had to use so many of them in an attempt to start or add to your family. Whatever your story is, it’s important. And it’s equally important that you don’t lose yourself. I have been there, and it’s an extremely difficult journey. Don’t lose sight of who you are. I am here to remind you!
9. Because why the frick not?! — do you REALLY need a big reason to spoil yourself?
Sometimes, there is no obvious reason to do a particular thing. Sometimes, you just have to DO IT and know that you will come out better from it! And boudoir is one of those things!
10. You’re getting married! — Are you kidding me?! What an awesome gift!
For realllll! Can you imagine your fiance opening up their gift on your wedding day and seeing their favorite woman (who they get to marry!!!) in sexy lingerie? I challenge you to name any gift that would come even close to competing with this!
And because I like odd numbers…here’s one more for you!
11. ***You want to do something BOLD and EMPOWERING — THIS. This right here is THE REASON.
This is the reason that combines all of the above reasons into one! When is the last time you stepped outside of your comfort zone and did something that was literally just for you? When is the last time that you did something that was a little (or maybe a lot) scary, but you knew you’d come out an even more incredible person afterwards? I want to show you how capable you are of being the best version of yourself! I want to show you that you ARE confident. That you ARE beautiful. That you ARE photogenic. That you ARE sexy. I want to show you all of this through my boudoir-eyes!
Now…who’s ready to call today DAY 1 “since the last time I did something great for myself?”
