Are Boudoir Photos Worth It?
Often when many of my clients first think of doing a boudoir shoot, they come to me saying things like:
“I’d really love to have boudoir photos done, but I don’t really have a reason to get them done.”
“I’m just not comfortable enough in my skin to book a boudoir shoot, and it doesn’t feel worth it.”
But what many potential clients don’t realize before speaking with me is that boudoir photography is about so much more than photos. It is an intimate, luxury experience that can completely transform your confidence and is considered a form of self-care.
Boudoir photos are worth it as a way to celebrate yourself, your sensuality, and to feel beautiful in your own skin.
Whether you’re gifted the experience or decide to book a session yourself, boudoir photography is an incredible way to pamper yourself and feel like a queen for a day.
Are Boudoir Photos Worth the Cost?
One of the other major concerns people have with boudoir photography is the cost.
But when you compare the cost of a boudoir session to other luxury experiences, like a day at the spa, or even a new wardrobe, it’s clear that booking a session and purchasing boudoir photos are absolutely an investment worth making.
When you book a session with Evgenia Ribinik Studios, you get more for your money than photos. You get an entire confidence-boosting experience. One that may leave you open to booking yet another session.
7 Reasons Why You Should Invest In Boudoir Photos
A boudoir photoshoot is more than just taking some sexy photos.
It’s an investment in your confidence, self-love, and empowerment.
If you’ve ever thought about doing a boudoir shoot, here are seven reasons why boudoir photos are worth it and why you should book your shoot sooner rather than later.
#1: Boudoir Photos Boost Confidence in New Ways
As a boudoir photographer, I aim to help women feel the most “at home” in their skin. This is why your boudoir session is all about celebrating you — it’s your time to shine bright and feel beautiful in your skin without apologies or fear.
Wearing gorgeous lingerie and playing up your femininity makes you feel like a bombshell, even if it’s only for an afternoon. You get to see another side of yourself in the photographs; someone beautiful, assertive, glamorous, and strong.
And once you start to feel that confidence?
It can help you enjoy a form of self-care, celebrate more about your body, bring out your personality, and even kickstart a change in how you live the rest of your life.
It’s not just about getting naked in front of a camera (though that can be part of it); boudoir photos are a way to show yourself some love and thrive.
#2: Booking a Boudoir Shoot Will Leave You Feeling Empowered
The magic of boudoir photography sessions doesn’t stop at boosting your self-confidence.
Whether you’ve never stepped in front of a professional photographer before or you’re a seasoned model, a boudoir photoshoot is an experience that will leave you feeling like the superstar that you are. You don’t need to be a certain size or have perfect skin — all you need is to be comfortable in your own skin and ready to rock your shoot!
I specialize in helping women feel their absolute best by coaching them through posing, styling, and mindset work so they can show up on the day of their photoshoot feeling confident and radiant.
Stunning boudoir photos that capture your unique personality and inner goddess. Don’t be surprised if you leave your shoot feeling your femininity and ready to help other women do the same.
#3: Boudoir Photos Are the Perfect Way to Celebrate Your Body — ‘Flaws’ and All
As women, many of us can be pretty hard on ourselves.
Most days, it can seem easier to focus on the things we don’t like about our appearance instead of celebrating what makes us unique and beautiful. Boudoir photography is all about empowering you to love your body exactly as it is and celebrating yourself just the way you are.
I’ve photographed many women in my career, and I know that no two are alike. That’s why I begin each photoshoot in my Brooklyn studio with a personalized approach. So whether you want to flaunt your curves or play up your feminine side, I’ll work with you to create the perfect atmosphere for your boudoir photoshoot.
Every woman is beautiful, regardless of age, size, or shape.
I want to help you see yourself through my lens.
My goal is to make you feel comfortable, sexy, and confident in front of the camera — all while having fun and enjoying the experience.
#4: Boudoir Photos Are a Unique Gift To be Cherished Forever
Boudoir is a unique gift for yourself because it’s an investment in your confidence and self-love. The photos are a reminder of how gorgeous you are (inside and out), and they’ll boost your confidence when you need it most.
Having boudoir photos taken is an incredibly energizing experience. It’s a chance to step outside your comfort zone, try something new, and feel confident and beautiful.
#5: Boudoir Photos Can Help You Remember Who You Are
Unlike many other investments, a boudoir photoshoot offers you an immediate return on investment! The experience will truly change your perception of yourself forever. Boudoir affects you in a much deeper and more meaningful way than say a gym membership or a new wardrobe.
My work is about empowering women.
Boudoir photography can lead you down a path of self-discovery and self-love — there is no greater investment than that!
#6: Boudoir Photoshoots Can Help You Enhance Your Relationship With Your Partner
Research has found that high self-esteem is beneficial in romantic relationships. Could that be because when you love yourself, you love others in a deeper sense? Maybe.
You may find the new confidence boost has improved your confidence in romantic relationships inside and outside the bedroom.
Or maybe you’ve become more comfortable with your friend groups. You’re more willing to discuss uncomfortable topics, or you can establish relationships with others because it’s become easier to understand yourself.
Whether your boudoir photos were taken alone or you’ve decided to book a couple’s boudoir shoot.
Plus, a couple’s boudoir shoot may even help you and your partner feel more connected.
#7: You Deserve It
Your femininity and sexuality aren’t something that should be hidden — even if we’ve been taught they should be.
After all, you have accomplished and will continue to accomplish in your life, you deserve to feel strong, beautiful, and sexy — because you are.
Although boudoir photos are a great gift to a spouse or partner, they are also one of the best gifts you can give yourself. Let your insecurities melt away during a session, and admire your own beauty when you pick your photos later.
