Why I Fell In Love With Boudoir Photography

How I Found Boudoir

I found boudoir photography when I decided to shoot my own session. The process of shooting my own session at the time was comical but I absolutely fell in love with boudoir. I felt so sexy, and that is not a word I would have used to describe myself! At the time, over five years ago I was an overworked mom of 3, slaving away in my 9-5 job, feeling like I had lost who I was somewhere in the grind of trying to raise a family. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love my husband and kids. But I was so busy working, hustling, being a mom, a wife, keeping the house, oh and the dog, that I had forgot who I was. She got lost in the daily grind. The woman who is feminine, beautiful, creative, sexy, and sensual needed to be found again.

But let me tell you, once I found her -that missing part of me- I never lost her again.

When I did my own session, when I fell in love with this experience, I was post twins, not back to my pre-pregnancy weight, not working out, not my most toned self, not ready to be wearing a two-piece swim suit in public, but still craving to embrace me. I absolutely love that I have these images of me, that truly show how beautiful I am. I still look at them and think “Dang, I look good!”

All these images are images of me from various sessions I’ve done of myself throughout the years. I am so proud of them and I love how they showcase me throughout the years as I’ve grown, become more confident and proud of myself. I have an album in the studio of my Christmas session because I love them so much that I wanted to have my own album, just for me, just because.

Make a Choice

I hear excuses from women all the time about why they can’t or won’t do their own boudoir session. Reasons usually include something like – I just need to lose 5 more pounds, 10 more pounds (or whatever the number), I couldn’t indulge that much in myself, I am too shy, I am ……, the list goes on. But truthfully, it sounds a whole lot like you’ve been saying to yourself that you’re not worth it. The way you are right now, is not worth documenting, valuing, investing in. And I am here to call you out on that thinking – thinking you’re not good enough, not worth it, not perfect enough – whatever that means.

My hope is that you will you will be brave enough to say I am worth it, I am worth this experience, I am enough the way I am right now and make a choice to say yes to this experience.

Maybe you are searching for something. Maybe you’ve lost who you are. Maybe you’re ready to embrace the sexy, sensual, feminine side of yourself. Maybe it’s time to put down all those titles that you carry and remember who you are.
