Many of our brides consider having boudoir portraits captured for their betrothed and my answer is always “yes please!” These sessions are so special and a true experience of honoring you and your beauty. Something to consider though — boudoir doesn’t have to be for your special someone only. These sessions are really about YOU. They are about loving yourself, honoring who you are, and really just indulging in doing something special for you!
And, yes! I totally get you…these sessions can be unnerving because, hello!…You are totally out of your element. My answer…that is totally ok! While you may feel nervous going into such an intimate session, here’s what I can tell you…we are here for you. I am here for you. I want you to have a stellar experience and to leave your session feeling confident. And I truly believe you will!
I was initially nervous and slightly uncomfortable not knowing what to expect because I had never done anything like this before. Allie was encouraging and supportive the entire time and her whole demeanor eased my worries away! She was the perfect combination of directive and warm and made someone like me who was self-conscious and unsure feel so empowered and comfortable. I am so happy with how the photos turned out that I was overwhelmed with emotion because not only was this a gift for my husband, it ended up being a gift to myself as well in raising my self-confidence and feeling more comfortable in my own skin! Thank you Allie, I appreciate you!!! XOXO
So now that you know why you should do this session, let me tell you how your day will go…
My hope is that if you have been on the fence about scheduling your session, that you’ve now made up your mind and that you want to gift yourself this experience. I remember when I scheduled mine. I was also very unsure, and to this day I have never once regretted the investment I made in myself. In fact, 9 years later, my husband still has one of the images by his bedside and I keep an album for me!
And I do want to note that on my website I don’t reveal my clients faces in these images because I respect their privacy. These are intimate captures and I would never share anything without written consent. With this in mind, I do have a private gallery collection I can share with you (also with permissions) if you would like to see more of my portfolio. Just send me a note as I am happy to share!
