BUSTING BOUDOIR EXCUSES
When we get nervous, we make excuses. We make excuses not to love ourselves or take care of ourselves. Sometimes life is just too busy, we are too crazy at work, or always have to drive someone somewhere. Sometimes it’s more important to spend some time with our spouse. We also use excuses like, “I wanna loose 15 lbs first..” and “I just don’t have money right now!” I wanted to write this post to show you that no matter what the excuse, you CAN do it! Let me show you you’re worth some self love.
I DON’T HAVE ENOUGH TIME FOR MYSELF
It’s also important to remember that if you aren’t taking care of yourself mentally, you’re not going to be able to handle taking care of everyone else, which makes sense but is much easier said than done. Sometimes I’m the WORST at making sure I give myself mental health breaks and that’s why I think it’s so important to share this with all of you.
At a boudoir shoot you are able to take a breath and slow down while loving yourself for a few hours. Think of what it would be like to rid yourself of all that energy you spend comparing yourself to others and worrying about what other people think of how you look. You get to see where your beauty comes from and removing that is huge benefit.
You need to take time for yourself, why not spend it getting glammed up and having an amazing time for once?
I’M NOT WHERE I WANT TO BE WEIGHT WISE
The bodies you see in various advertising represents only about 5% of females who would match those measurements. Yes that’s right, ONLY FIVE PERCENT!
So what about the other 95% of women? Are you telling me they are undesirable? That they aren’t pretty? Hell No… sorry if I’ve said this many time before but I believe EVERY body is beautiful. Why do you have to be part of that 5% to have positive body acceptance? Well I have news, you don’t need to fit those measurements to be beautiful. You’re perfect RIGHT NOW! It’s not a competition.
Be proud of the body you have now and although I love the idea of using a boudoir session to reward yourself for a healthier lifestyle, don’t chase goals that may not be realistic. Some of my favourite clients have been the ones that came to love themselves for who they were at the time of the shoot not someone that they were 5, 10, 20 years ago. Have a boudoir shoot to celebrate who you are now, and then have another if you loose 15 lbs to celebrate how far you’ve come. Love yourself.
I NEVER FEEL SEXY OR SENSUAL ANYMORE SO BOUDOIR ISN’T FOR ME
WRONG. This is EXACTLY why you need to do a boudoir shoot.
Often times, women loose touch with their femininity or sexuality when life gets crazy because of kids/health/work. It happens and it’s totally normal and OK. A great way to reconnect with that side of yourself again is to have a boudoir shoot done so it re-ignites that spark. I’ve shown so many women that spark that I’ve lost count but each time I can see it in the way they carry themselves after the shoot. It’s a magical transformation that inspires confidence and a new found sexiness.
A BOUDOIR SESSION IS AN INVESTMENT AND I DON’T HAVE THAT KIND OF MONEY
Yes, a boudoir session IS an investment. It’s also an investment in yourself. You are investing in your well-being and confidence too! I do offer payment plans to spread the payments out a bit. What you get from a boudoir session is so much more than just dollars and cents. How much would you value confidence, body acceptance, a new or rekindled sexiness or just a general appreciation of who you are right now?
