First off, let’s just say this up front. Boudoir photography celebrates the incredible person you are TODAY!! Below are the top 4 excuses we hear from prospective clients about why they can’t book a session, and our reasons for why they CAN!
You are perfect and ready, right this very instant.
Wherever you are in your journey with yourself, we are ready to meet you there and show you a side of yourself you likely haven’t seen before. We photograph everybody and every body type, regardless of age, gender or sexual orientation, and nothing gives us greater pleasure than to show you just how beautiful you really are. Regardless of why you think you can’t, I wanted to write this post to show you that no matter what the excuse, you CAN do it!
One: I Don’t Have Enough Time For Myself
With work, family and other commitments, we understand how hard it is to juggle everything in your life and that making yourself a priority may be pretty low on your list. However, it’s 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. I once read you will always find time for what’s important. Don’t forget that you’re important, too. And it’s important to take time for yourself. A boudoir session is about pampering yourself, and looking and feeling like a model for the day, all while feeling empowered and having fun. It’s time to make yourself a priority because you ARE important!
Two: I’m Not Where I Want To Be Weight Wise
Media’s representation of women is completely biased, showing roughly only 5% of the population by size. Many believe that in order to look or feel beautiful or to be worthy of booking a session, that they need to match what they see in the media. Don’t be fooled! Recent statistics indicate the average size of North American women is 14.
You’ve seen the women on our site and social media. Every single one had insecurities just like you, but they took the plunge and were so glad that they did. You’ll get to look and feel like a model for the day. Be proud of the body you have now. It’s not about loving an aspiration, it’s about loving yourself now.
The thought of wearing something revealing, much less taking your clothes off in front of a stranger and having photos is terrifying for most. You fear being judged and being seen. I totally get that. It IS terrifying! It’s one of the most vulnerable things you can do. But, it’s in these moments that we find our true selves. These are the moments we shine. Most fun in life is outside our comfort zones. We want to help you convert your most vulnerable moments into amazing transformations.
You are perfect right now, just the way you are.
Three: I Don’t Feel Sexy or Sensual Anymore
Many clients have told us before their session that they can’t book a boudoir session because they don’t feel sexy anymore. They’ve got kids, they’re tired from work, and so on. What they don’t realize, until after the session, is that boudoir is EXACTLY why they need to do a boudoir shoot because while it won’t reduce your work load, LOL, it does help bring out that inner sexy goddess you have inside. Having a boudoir session helps you reconnect with yourself and reignite the spark you think you may have lost, but just needs rekindling. Booking a boudoir session facilitates a magical transformation that inspires confidence and a new found sexiness.
Four: Boudoir Is An Investment & I Don’t Have That Kind Of Money
What monetary value can be placed on a sense of self love, body acceptance, and appreciation of yourself?
While a boudoir session is certainly a financial investment, it’s also an investment in yourself. You are investing in your well-being and confidence too! How much have you spent on beauty products or maybe fitness or weight loss programs over the years? How much is feeling amazing about yourself just the way you are right now, worth? It’s priceless!
The experience you get from a boudoir session is so much more than dollars and cents. For those reasons, we offer payment plans to those requiring them to help spread out the cost of the products you order. We also have a ‘boudie bank’ where you can make prepayments towards your session and finished products so this precious investment in yourself doesn’t get lost towards gas and groceries and that hydro bill!
