In today’s world it has become very clear how our bodies are scrutinized by the media and society, especially as women. I won’t be the first to tell you that we are taught to hate our bodies, and therefore, ourselves. That, however, is the exact reason why I started my journey into boudoir photography - to empower women to love their bodies and themselves, regardless of what society thinks of your body. Here’s a big FU to standards!
I can’t even begin to tell you the number of clients we have talked to, who feel unsure about their decision to do a boudoir session. The reasons they give are anywhere from, “I need to lose the baby weight,” to “I’m not pretty enough,” to “I’m not photogenic.” - DON’T LISTEN TO THESE NEGATIVE THOUGHTS BABE! Although we can relate to all of this.. at the end of the day, those are just different ways to say that you aren’t feeling confident. And that’s ok, but we are going to help change that! You don’t have to be confident to book a boudoir session, all we need is for you to show up, + the confidence will follow, closely!
Trust us, each member of our team is an expert in self-doubt - or at least, we all used to be. Each one of us has been on a journey to gain self-acceptance, and now we are here, helping women see themselves differently, love themselves harder, and feel more confident in themselves. That’s not to say we don’t still struggle - but we try our absolute hardest to love ourselves, every single day, and try our best to set a good example for our clients.
Learning to love and accept your body as it is and to become the best version of yourself is a journey, almost always one of the hardest but most rewarding journeys that you will ever experience. It takes time to learn HOW to love and accept yourself. And surprisingly enough, your boudoir experience can and will be a HUGE step in that journey. Most of our clients are still in the beginning stages of their self-love journeys, and have decided that a boudoir session would be a great way to give themselves some self-care - and they are 1000000% correct.
A boudoir session is one of the most empowering things you can do for yourself (and I am not just saying that to get you to book, just ask our past clients). Not only is the spotlight on you the whole time, but you get to have your hair and makeup done which makes you feel beautiful and powerful, all before getting into your bomb a** lingerie. Not to mention, your photographs that will become a daily reminder of how beautiful you truly are.
Our clients who have done a boudoir session with BXB have told us time and time again how empowering this experience was for them and how doing a boudoir session allowed them to take back their power, to be their best self, to accept themselves exactly as they are, or to see themselves in an entirely new light. All of this is to say that you may feel a little nervous before your session, but that is normal. It is a sign that you are in the right place, you are doing something great for yourself, and at the end of the day, you will be so happy that you did it!
If you are looking to begin your self-love journey or are just in search of a day of pampering and photos to remind you of your worth every day, you have come to the right place!
