You are busy studying and planning for your future, or maybe you’re planning your wedding. You are a mom, a wife, a cook, a businesswoman, a best friend, and much, MUCH more. But at the end of the day, you are a woman.

As women, we have a desire to feel sexy. We want to look at ourselves with confidence, and we want our spouses to look at us and think “wow, how did I get so lucky?” Now as we all know. the average woman is not a supermodel. She enjoys life, indulges in her favorite foods when those cravings come along, and has beautiful, natural curves that she must show off!

Let’s step back to the subject of “confidence.” Let’s take a snapshot of the amazing you NOW. Not in 3 years, not in 10 years. NOW…while you are busy being supermom, superwife, superwoman, or just superYOU. If there was ever an excuse to give yourself a moment just for you (okay, your spouse will be able to enjoy it as well!), this is that moment.

We have come up with the top 5 reasons to get your boudoir photos taken:

1. To “Be your own kind of beautiful.”

You are unique, stunning, and worth showing off (even if it’s just for yourself to see). Getting these photos taken is not to prove this to anyone other than yourself. You are the only you there is in the world, and it’s time to embrace that!

2. To give an amazing, sexy, and unique gift.

If you are dating, engaged, or married, this is a perfect gift for your significant other. It makes a great anniversary, birthday, or wedding gift in a sexy Little Black Book!

3. To allow yourself to be pampered.

It’s time you take a day to worry about no one other than yourself. When you are happy, those near you will be happy. Get your hair and makeup professionally done, get a manicure, and have a relaxing day sipping champagne before the big photo shoot!

4. To build your confidence.

There hasn’t been one girl I have photographed who wasn’t at least a little bit nervous. While this doesn’t necessarily have to do with confidence, it is incredible to see the transformation in their attitude within 10 minutes of the session. Mid-shoot, they realize how beautiful they look, and they simply exude sexiness! Other than the photo shoot itself, the best part is getting the photos afterwards. We have received emails from our boudoir lovelies stating how they never thought they looked so beautiful, or they never felt this comfortable in their own skin. It makes my heart beam knowing that a simple photo shoot could completely transform the confidence they have in themselves.

“We gain strength, and courage, and confidence by each experience in which we really stop to look fear in the face… we must do that which we think we cannot.” – Eleanor Roosevelt 

5. To capture the you; right here, right now. 

Until someone finds the secret to staying young forever, this IS the “young you.” You will be a day older tomorrow, a year older next year, and so forth. You are beautiful, and it is time to capture that beauty in a way you never planned! The longer you put it off, the less likely you are to do it. Above all else, this gift is for YOU.

{Now…Let that sexy SHINE!}
