Breast Cancer Awareness Month: Celebrate Your Body

Boudoir PhotographyHere at The Pouting Room, we believe in honoring your unique beauty year-round. That said, this month is a particularly good time to celebrate your body since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Here are a few things we recommend doing to raise awareness and funds to combat the disease, which will affect an estimated 1 in 8 women during their lifetimes:

Take care of yourself

All women should perform a monthly breast self-exam to check for any lumps, changes or abnormalities. Here’s how to do it. If you’re over 40, talk to your doctor about getting regular mammograms. Most women in this age group should get a mammogram every year or two.

Support your sisters

This month, when you make a contribution to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, your donation will help provide a mammogram to a woman in need. Many women can’t afford their recommended regular mammograms, and your support will help ensure that more women receive much-needed screening.

Wear pink

Wear pink throughout the month to honor survivors, raise awareness about breast cancer and encourage fundraising efforts.

Love the skin you’re in

If you’re one of the more than 3 million women in the U.S. who are breast cancer survivors, know that you are gorgeous exactly the way you are. Celebrate your one-of-a-kind strength and beauty by booking a boudoir photo shoot at The Pouting Room. We’ll take beautiful photos that will boost your self-confidence and show off your natural beauty. Browse through our portfolio and give us a call at 508-603-1163 to find out more and book a session!
