I don’t need to tell you how short life is. I don’t need to point out that one day you’ll turn around and wonder what happened to your 20’s… or 30’s… or 40’s. You know this already. Deep down, you know that you shouldn’t put off doing the things you want to do. Even if they make you a little scared.
Over the years, I’ve heard so many reasons why women thought they shouldn’t do a boudoir shoot. They needed to lose more weight first. They didn’t have the time. Work and kids had them so busy… it felt selfish to spend the time on themselves.
“Maybe one day I’ll feel more confident about myself, and then I’ll take those photos!” one woman once told me. But when you think about it, no one is promised this elusive “one day”. The right now is simply a gift we’ve been given. Who knows what tomorrow will bring.
So if you’re saying to yourself:
“I need to lose weight.”
I say: Instead of worrying about shedding pounds, embrace your curves. Love your body in whatever shape it’s in right now, because it’s the only one you’ve got! Make a boudoir session the first step on your journey to self love. And please, please, please stop worrying about weight. The best weight loss plan is actually very simple: When you start talking to and caring for yourself in a more loving way, the pounds will come off naturally.
“I don’t have time.”
I say: Make time. Stepping away from the chaos of everyday life – whether it’s work, children or both – will help you to clear your mind. Everyone needs their reset button to be pushed sometimes. A boudoir shoot will allow you to feel pampered for a day and will get your endorphins going! When you return to your responsibilities refreshed, you will actually handle them better.
“I don’t feel confident enough.”
I say: Perfect! Because boudoir is the answer to a lack of confidence. If you don’t have confidence now, you certainly will after your photo session! You’ll get your hair, makeup and nails done. You’ll pick out some outfits that make you feel totally sexy. And then you’ll pose for shots that make you feel completely empowered. If you don’t believe me now, you will when you see the photos!

Until next week, Lovelies!
