5 Excuses Why You Haven't Done a Boudoir Shoot

Every day I talk with women who are at some stage of considering or booking their boudoir session with me. Their enthusiasm ranges from mildly curious to positively giddy, but almost every one of them, at some point, expresses some hesitation. Their reasons for not just GOING FOR IT are understandable, and predictable. I hear the same thing from women, over and over.

The precise expression is different from person to person. Something like, “I’m too old for that kind of thing.” or “I need to loose some weight first.” I’m here to tell you…it’s all a load of crap! You don’t need to change a single thing in order to be ready for your boudoir session. Boudoir is about celebrating YOU. Your body. Your power. Your strength. Your resiliency. You are the perfect size and shape for a boudoir photo session….right now.

I'm So Nervous

In my experience, this is true for anyone considering a photo shoot of any kind. Most of us aren’t used to being in front of a camera, and it can be nerve-wracking. And that’s compounded by the fact that you are about to stand in front of a camera in your underwear. This is where my experience comes into play. Over the years I have photographed hundreds of people, and it’s my job to help you feel safe and comfortable. And in addition to taking amazing photos of you, I’m really good at putting my clients at ease. If you like, consider bringing along a friend to lend some laughter and familiarity to the mix.

What Would I Do With These Photos?

Elegant boudoir photography makes an amazing, intimate gift for your special someone. But with every session, I hear clients say how the experience was a gift to themselves, as well. Boudoir is designed to help you feel your most beautiful, confident, pampered and fabulous. Can you think of a better gift to give yourself than that? You’ll leave your session feeling amazing and inspired.

I Can't Afford It

Women often tell me they feel selfish and self-indulgent spending this kind of money on themselves. Why the hell not? When was the last time you spent time and money on yourself? This is your time. A little indulgence is good for you, and you’re worth it!

I Have Nothing To Wear

Part of feeling beautiful is also feeling comfortable, in your outfit and in your own skin. If lingerie isn’t your thing, let’s brainstorm to think outside the box. Lace and garter belts aren’t the only way to dress for a boudoir shoot. Your favorite denim or leather jacket with a peek-a-boo bra might be just the thing to make you feel like a star in front of the camera.

Whatever feels sexy to you is probably a better apparel choice anyway. Maybe you feel beautiful in your most loved pair of jeans, a men’s button-down shirt, or even nothing at all. A boudoir shoot is not about buying all new clothes or dressing for a part, it is about feeling beautiful just as you are.
