Boudoir shoots are something a lot of women don't even know exist, but they can be an amazing experience. A boudoir shoot is about showing you off in all of your sensual glory, improving your appreciation of your body and empowering you as a woman. A good boudoir photographer will help you see yourself in a new, sexy light. So, here are some reasons you might want to do one:
You Need Self ConfidenceToo many of us don't see ourselves as beautiful. In fact, most of us are constantly bombarded with messages that our bodies are not good enough. Messages meant to sell us fad diets, corsetry, push up bras and all kinds of other ways to "improve" what nature gave us. A good boudoir shoot will show off your best features, without masking or hiding them. You'll get proof of exactly how sexy you can be (and possibly some advice on the sexy lingerie you should be wearing to highlight you, not try to turn into somebody else).
There seem to be many myths pertaining to boudoir photography. And unfortunately, these myths prevent many women from participating in this amazing experience! Let’s go ahead and bust five of the biggest myths and ease your fears if you find yourself being hesitant. I have to be naked. It doesn’t matter if you’re wearing lingerie, a potato sack, or nothing at all. The main purpose of Boudoir photography is to empower the subject, not to make them uncomfortable.

Who you are in this very moment is exactly who you should be as you begin this journey. I’ve photographed every age, size, shape, color, whatever, and the results are always gorgeous. There are too many things in this life that we choose not to experience because we don’t match societies beauty standards. Boudoir photography will help release the chains that bind you, and you will see that anything is possible!
