BOUDOIR : how it affects mental health + self worth.

If you’re struggling with self-worth, you’re not alone. My clients may look extremely confident in their photos, but 90% of the time, they didn’t walk into the studio feeling that way. Their Boudoir Experience helped changed their mindset.

Loving yourself is one of the most important things you can do for your mental and emotional well-being. It means accepting and embracing who you are, flaws and all, and recognizing your own worth and value as a person. Here are just a few reasons why a BOUDOIR EXPERIENCE may actually help change your life for the better!

When you finally put yourself first to schedule a session, you WILL feel more confident and self-assured. You will begin to recognize your own strengths and abilities, and you feel empowered to pursue your goals and dreams. This improved self-esteem and confidence can have a positive impact on all areas of your life, from your career to your personal relationships. 

Boudoir allows for time to step back and recognize your own needs and start prioritizing self-care. When you love yourself, you’re more likely to take time for yourself, to set healthy boundaries, and to practice self-compassion. All of these things can help reduce stress, anxiety, and depression, and promote overall mental and emotional well-being.

Think of your boudoir session as your own personal therapy appointment! We *love* to chat if you do! We’ll laugh and have as much fun as you wish! It does NOT have to be stuffy in the studio!

Get ready to feel more equipped to form healthy and fulfilling relationships with others.

You’re 100% going to be more confident in who you are, and you’re less likely to seek validation or approval from others. This can help you form stronger and more authentic connections with the people around you. I’ve even had clients tell me it’s brought them closer to their partner and they felt a new spark in their connection they haven’t in a long time. This is something really special I get to offer my clients without them even knowing it’s an added perk! :)

Whether you believe it or not, a boudoir session can help you be more resilient in the face of challenges and setbacks. You’ll be able to cope with adversity and to bounce back from difficult situations. You recognize your own strength and resilience, and you’re better equipped to persevere through tough times.

In a world that often promotes unrealistic beauty standards and societal expectations, it’s easy to feel pressure to conform to certain norms. But loving yourself means rejecting those standards and celebrating your own unique qualities and strengths. So let’s practice self-love, one day at a time, and recognize our own worth and value as individuals.

I believe in you.
