1. It all starts with how you view yourself.

Real talk- we all deal with insecurity.

Some of us are unhappy with our appearance, have expectations of what a “perfect” or “ideal” body looks like, and compare ourselves to those beliefs that we’ve grown to adopt over the years. These thoughts and beliefs can lead us to feeling insecure and shameful to the point where we begin to hide our bodies from our partner, avoid intimacy, etc.

If you’re experiencing this- you’re not alone! Although we all experience these beliefs, comparisons, and thoughts, it doesn’t mean that we deserve to beat ourselves into the ground for not looking or feeling the way that we think we “should”.

So what do we do when we see ourselves hopping on these thought trains? How do we stop these shame-ridden cycles?

One great way to fight shame is to open up and become vulnerable with a person that makes you feel safe. For many of us, this would be our partner. Through sharing your insecurities, you’re taking some of your power back from them and fighting them in a healthy way.

But the work doesn’t stop there. Exploring different ways to make yourself feel seen, empowered, and accepted will help you feel even more capable when fighting these cycles.

This is where boudoir photoshoots can help you- it gives you the power to transform the way you look and feel about yourself.

2. It teaches you to learn how to accept yourself for wherever you’re at in this moment.

Boudoir photoshoots aren’t just about the end result. Yes, having some flawless sultry pictures of you to take home and cherish into your 80’s is phenomenal itself- but what about your actual photoshoot experience?

As a boudoir photographer, it’s my job to create an empowering environment, hype you up, and help you feel comfortable in your own skin.

The experience itself is transformative. It opens the door to exploring your sensuality, learning to love your body in a new way, and gives you an opportunity to recognize yourself and your beauty for where you’re at in this moment.

By understanding and appreciating yourself more, your confidence and security within yourself will evolve and in turn will translate to the bedroom!

3. Sometimes spicing it up is what you need!

I think it’s safe to say that most of our lives have been disrupted as a result of Covid-19.

Many of us are now working from home, are unemployed, are now full-time teachers to our kids, and on top of everything are still trying to manage our own mental health. Some of us are suffering with Covid-19 itself, and or are worried about our loved ones who have been infected. 

With all normalcy being gone, and the majority of us experiencing an acute state of distress, it’s understandable that it’s hard to carve out time and the emotional headspace to connect sexually with our partners. 

Doing something special like a boudoir photoshoot can be the spark to get back in touch with your sensuality and rekindle your physical relationship with your partner!

4. It’s a way to connect physically and emotionally.

Boudoir photography is an intimate experience. It’s sultry, hot, and powerful. Most people automatically assume that boudoir photoshoots only benefits the physical parts of relationships, but it actually helps increase our emotional connection with our partners as well.

When in a committed relationship, we all have different attachment styles which impact how we grow together as partners. Boudoir photography is just one of many ways you can strengthen your emotional bond with your partner, practice being vulnerable, building trusting between you, and more.

5. It’s a great way to express our fun and playful sides!

When we’ve been with our partner for a long time, we can lose spontaneity. Many of us have experienced a time in our life where we feel like we’re missing the playful dating aspect of our relationship. Good news is that just because it might not be there at this moment, it can be easily reignited!

Here is where the little things can make all the difference in your relationship. Because let’s be real- what’s better than a sultry “thinking of you” text? Maybe surprising your partner with some sexy pics?

    It’s great that you mentioned how boudoir sessions could help give you power to transform the way you look and feel about yourself. My wife’s birthday is soon and we are thinking of doing a new and uncommon activity to celebrate her birthday. I heard boudoir photography could have a lot of benefits for women so maybe I should try suggesting it to her.

  3. Absolutely you should suggest it to her! Every woman that comes to my studio has something they hope it to get out of this experience, their reasons are all different….They ALL leave feeling it was achieved and more!
