Top 5 reasons why you should book a boudoir session

Honestly, there are a ton more than just 5 reasons to book a boudoir session, but I’m going to highlight the top 5 here. I hope they all resonate with you!

#5 – Because it’s fun!

As an adult, you may get your hair and makeup done for a special occasion like a wedding or a big celebration, but what about for no reason other than to get photos of yourself?? Imagine sitting down and getting pampered by a professional hair and makeup artist, getting to have fun with different types of clothes that you don’t normally wear, and then being guided by a professional artist in such a way that you look and feel your very best. You don’t have to worry about work or your family or anything else for a chunk of your day. It sounds like the very best fun I can think of!

#4 – It’s the best self-care gift.

Hands down, a boudoir session is the best type of self-care you can do for yourself. Whatever roles you play in your life, whether it be a mother, wife, sister, daughter, friend, coworker, boss… it means that others are demanding a lot of time and energy from you. When do you take time for yourself? What do you do with that time? Does it honor your body, your sense of self, your power? A boudoir session will honor all 3. If you can set aside a few hours to allow yourself this luxury experience, it will be a worthwhile time.

#3 – To gain a renewed sense of confidence.

I honestly can’t think of another single activity that you can do in an hour that uplifts you and gives you a renewed sense of confidence like a boudoir session. The feedback after every session consistently aligns with everyone getting a boost of confidence. There is something so special and raw and authentic about being present in your body, taking a moment for yourself, and moving your body in powerful ways. Perhaps if you dance – take a pole, heels, or burlesque dance class, you may get the same energy, but I love that the boudoir session fuels it and then the images from it keep that energy alive.

#2 – To embrace your body and who you are at this very moment in time of your life. 

You’re never going to get this moment back in your life. You may weigh more, or you may weigh less, than you did 10 years ago, and undoubtedly, your weight will probably change again over the next 10 years ago. You may have a few more wrinkles, some gray hairs. It doesn’t matter. You can’t predict the future and you can’t change the past. What you can do is embrace the present and accept your body for where it is now, for the season of life you’re in now.

Body positivity has been a movement that you see everywhere on social media and in our culture, but there is a different kind of movement that some people may be able to embrace a little easier. It’s called body neutrality. It may be difficult to flip hating on your body to loving on your body, but what if you just didn’t attach any feeling – negative or positive – to it. What if you didn’t judge it one way or another and just accepted it for what it is in this moment in time? What if I could document this body neutrality for you and for the first time, you could look at an image of your body and not feel anything negative about it?

I love when women come into my studio and absolutely love and embrace their bodies! I love when they feel empowered in their skin. But I know there are women out there who don’t feel that way and therefore are reluctant to get in front of the camera, but I want to encourage those women to come into my studio as well. You can embrace your body for how it is today. Your future self will thank you.

#1 – And finally, the #1 reason you get a boudoir session – because you are absolutely 100% worth it!! 

There is ZERO doubt in my mind that if you have gotten to the point in your life where you are now, you have survived a LOT of challenges in life. You have had successes and you have had failures, and you’ve made it through. No matter your family situation, your work circumstances, your homelife… you have done things in your life that are unique to you. That should be celebrated!

There are truly so many more reasons why I encourage women to get a boudoir session. It may be a once-in-a-lifetime thing for some women, but for others, it may be an annual event that they invest for themselves. Whichever is the case for you, I hope that you do give yourself the grace and permission to do it. It’s something that when you’re older and you look back at your life as it is now, you won’t regret it! To get started, please contact me here.


Honoring the feminine experience by creating photographic fine art to transform and empower women. 

You wear countless hats – wife, mother, sister, daughter, boss, friend. And sometimes you crave a moment to remove them all and just remember who you are at your divine core… a woman with grace, beauty, and confidence. But you’re busy and the days roll by. You’ve been through a lot. And it’s easy to feel like you’ve lost part of your identity. I see you and I’m here to give you permission to take time for yourself, to be present in your own skin, to be sexy and sensual, confident and empowered, but most importantly, permission to simply be the BEST version of yourself. You deserve that. You deserve to be seen, to be the main character in your story, to be celebrated.
