Why you SHOULD do a Boudoir Session!

Boudoir Photography

Firstly. Let’s start with the basics – What is Reflections Boudoir all about? A Reflections Boudoir session is a luxury photo experience done in an intimate setting to promote self-worth & confidence. It is more than a photoshoot in lingerie, it is a reminder that you are courageous and strong. For most people, having these intimate photos taken, is already overcoming a huge fear! It can be a unique gift for your spouse, a celebration of important milestones, a sexual rediscovery, but most importantly a celebration of you.

When was the last time you really felt good in your own skin? Had some moments just for yourself? Looked at your very own portraits and was amazed by the way you looked? Are you wondering why you should do it? Welcome gorgeous, you came in the right spot. 

1. Self-Love Experience

Boudoir is a celebration of you and your body. As a woman, I understand that when we look in the mirror we are sometimes not happy with what we see. There is an image in our heads of what we should look like, and we feel the urge to “perfect” ourselves until we reach that goal. But our bodies tell a story of who we are. There can be stretch marks and loose skin on your belly. The laugh lines, wrinkles, and the color of your hair. Freckles, moles, weight, scars, tan lines, all of it make up part of your story. Embrace that, everybody is a work of art and unique in its own way and I’m helping you to see that.

2. Confidence boost  

First of all, overcoming the fear of being in front of the camera and having photos taken in your lingerie. But when you see your images, they tell a different narrative. Through the correct posing, we are going to highlight every aspect of your beauty and body parts that you are most proud of. Our team will make you to feel like a queen for a day. We treat you with our own talents, make-up, hair, and photography. The day is all about you and your wishes, more like a spa experience. Many women have busy schedules and they forget how it is to be a woman, to be treated like one. So I urge you, rebel against your everyday routine, take time for yourself and the things that will make you feel good. 

Don’t feel guilty about scheduling a boudoir shoot for yourself. When you take care of your mind, body, and soul, the people in your life benefit as well. If you give yourself this kind of treat, you will remember that you feeling great is the most important. I’m sure that the same day you will walk out of the room more confident, uplifted, and happy. 

3. Unique gift or milestone celebration 

The images created during your Reflections Boudoir experience can be a unique gift for yourself or your spouse. Yes, a session like this is an investment but can you imagine seeing those photos in 20 years? This is going to be your legacy and I’m sure you’ve never looked better. On the other hand, if that’s a gift for your spouse, can you imagine him/her looking at those photos? I’m sure that’s something they would never expect to get as a gift and it would be a huge and pleasant surprise. 

Boudoir can also be a milestone celebration like getting married, losing weight, accepting who you are, a period before or after being mom, getting out of a relationship, or starting fresh – we’ve seen it all. Most importantly, it is a perfect way to treat yourself. 

4. Rediscovery of your femininity 

Capturing intimate, sexy, flattering, and sometimes naughty photographs with the taste can also be a rediscovery of your feminine energy. Feminine energy refers to a specific set of traits, considered to be the opposite of traits associated with masculine energy. Your masculine side gets expressed when you’re working toward a goal, making progress, getting things done, and pushing forward. Your feminine side gets expressed when you move with the flow of life, embrace your creative energy, dance, play, and attune to your internal process. It feels good to be spontaneous, or be completely rebellious, to make us feel better. 

5. Beautiful work of art you will keep forever 

As a photographer, my goal is to create photographs that you will treasure forever. You can put those portraits on the wall, showcase in a folio box, or make a beautiful photo album or a magazine out of them. It will stay with you for the years after and you cannot imagine how valuable it will become with time.
