Busting Excuses: Why You Deserve a Boudoir Experience
Busting Excuses When we get nervous, we make excuses. We make excuses not to love ourselves or take care of ourselves. Sometimes life is just busy, we are too crazy at work, or always have to drive someone SOMEWHERE. Sometimes it’s more important to spend time with our spouse. Don’t get me started on how busy work keeps us! We also use excuses like “I need to drop some weight first!” and “I just don’t have the money right now!” I wanted to write this to show you all that no matter the excuse you CAN do it! Allow me to show you that no matter the circumstances, YOU are WORTHY of 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 actually much harder said than done! Speaking of harder, it really is harder to take care of everyone else when you are physically and emotionally drained! What is the saying - trying to squeeze water from a rock. Honestly speaking, often I am the WORST at making sure that I am giving myself mental health breaks and truly that’s why I think it’s so important to share this with you all. I make the same excuses as above and sometimes I need someone to look me in the face and say, “SLOW DOWN, give yourself a break, breathe for a minute!”
During a boudoir shoot you are able to breathe, and love yourself for a few hours. Think of all the energy you will save on a daily basis if you stop comparing yourself to others, or stop worrying about what other people will think of how you look. You get to see where your beauty really comes from and this lifts such a huge mental weight.
You need to take time for yourself, why not spend it having an amazing time and getting glammed up for once?
"I’m not where I want to be weight wise/I don’t fit society’s idea of a good enough size”
Did you know that the body type portrayed in advertising as the ideal is possessed naturally by only 5% of American females? ONLY FIVE PERCENT. I will say this over and over again (and sorry, not sorry if you have heard me say it before), but WHY do you have to be a certain size to LOVE yourself? WHY do you have to fit a stranger's messed up idea of a perfect body to LOVE your own body? WHY are you comparing your size to everyone else, when no 2 women are the same? I think it’s amazing to have goals and want to be healthy, but does that mean you have to hate your body to do those things? Absolutely not. You should LOVE yourself every step of the way. Be proud of where you are so that you can be proud of where you are going. Have a boudoir shoot to celebrate where you are now, and then have one when you lose that 15 lbs to celebrate how far you’ve come!
"I never feel sexy or sensual anymore so a boudoir shoot must not be for me.
This excuse is actually the EXACT reason you SHOULD do a boudoir shoot.
Oftentimes we lose touch with our femininity when life gets crazy because of health/kids/work. Many of us don’t just lose touch with our femininity, but we truly lose touch with our identity! Who are we if we aren’t caring for those around us?It happens a lot and it is absolutely normal and okay! It’s good to be able to see the disconnect. Awareness is the first step towards regaining a sense of self, and fulfillment again. A great way to find this side of ourselves again is to have a boudoir shoot done to put that spark back in us. I can show you that you have that inside you somewhere, and it might even ignite a spark between you and your other half as well!
Another thing to remember is that you don’t HAVE to wear super sexy clothing/lingerie for it to be considered boudoir. We are all about the Alter Ego here. If you feel like that doesn’t show your personality, then there are so many other outfit ideas. If you need ideas, I will gladly talk to you about them or you can check out our blog on finding outfits here!
“A boudoir shoot is an investment and I don’t have all the money right now.”
Yes, a boudoir shoot IS an investment. It is also an investment in yourself. You are investing in your well-being and confidence as well. We do offer payment plans! In order to book your shoot, there is a booking retainer, and after that we can set up your payment plan for the remaining so that it might be easier to book a shoot! If you have any questions about our payment plans, shoot us an email while setting up your shoot!
