Boudoir is for YOU. This statement is so important, and I tell all of my clients, like I’m telling you right now, your boudoir photography session is about YOU, who YOU are in this moment. My clients are typically doing a boudoir session for their groom, boyfriend, husband, anniversary, birthday, etc. . . to the client – it’s all about who is going to receive the book. . . to me, it’s all about YOU. In life, reasons why we do things and plans we have may not always happen the way we think. Over the years, I’ve had a few clients get un-engaged, un-married, and un-boyfriend. . . in most cases, they let me know when it happens. I feel blessed when they do, because they almost always say the same thing. . . even though the outcome was not as they planned, they are still so happy to have done a boudoir session with me, they feel so much better about themselves, they are more confident, and are stronger than ever before and ready to move forward.
Empowerment is a strong word, and has so many different meanings. Today, take away this. . . boudoir is about YOU, and empowering YOU. If you are out there, and thinking “My husband would love this, but I just could never do that, it’s so NOT me”. . . “I’m not photogenic”. . . .”I need to lose 20 pounds first”. . . “I’ve got stretch marks and belly flab”. . . “I’m super shy”. . . “I’ve never done anything like this before”. . . “I hate having my picture taken” . . . trust me, you can do this, and you will be SO glad you did.
For Ms. J. . . things did not work out the way she planned, but she was absolutely empowered by her session, and she moved forward more confident in herself. Thank you Mr. J for allowing me to share the images from your boudoir session! xxoo
