Have you ever cleaned out a closet and come across old photos? You know, the kind that made you stop and spend hours reminiscing about days past? The kind that made you wish you had taken more photos so you could perfectly remember that time in your life?
Photography is an incredibly powerful tool. It gives us the chance to capture moments forever. Boudoir photography is no different. In fact, it’s even more powerful because it captures how we feel about ourselves in those moments. When you look back on a boudoir session, it’s like stripping the sheets off a bed. You remember the time you discovered a little bit more about the woman you are inside.
Why you shouldn’t wait to take boudoir photos
To many of you, wearing lingerie or being nude in front of a photographer you never met can seem terrifying. You may dream about doing a boudoir session, but doing it is a whole other thing! Here’s a little piece of advice, though. When you hold off on doing something, you may never get another chance. Life is funny like that. Things happen, and dreams often get pushed aside. As days, months and years pass, we can forget about our dreams. Until one day we’re doing something totally random — like cleaning a closet — and realize we should have pursued them after all.
Whether you’re thinking of taking boudoir photos to mark an occasion like a wedding, an anniversary or a new job, or you want to take them just because, you won’t regret it. Boudoir is a way to capture exactly who you are right now, and learn to embrace it. You may have curves, or you may have a boyish frame. You may be a mom or you may be getting ready to retire from your job. Regardless of your shape, size or age, boudoir is for everyone. It’s a way to celebrate our bodies and the fact that they got us to this point in our lives. These photos will always serve as reminders of that! That’s what makes boudoir so very powerful.
Don’t just take my word for it, though. Here’s what one of my lovely clients had to say about her recent boudoir session in New York City:
“Thank you so much! It was such a great experience and I’m really looking forward to seeing the images. I can’t thank you enough for making me feel so comfortable and beautiful.”
