A Gift For Yourself
As a boudoir photographer, I have had the privilege of capturing the beauty and confidence of many clients through my lens. Some women do a session as a gift for their partner. Whether it be for a wedding, anniversary, birthday or just because. What many clients come to realize is that these boudoir empowerment photo sessions are often more of a gift to themselves than for someone else.
I have seen clients arrive at my studio feeling nervous and self-conscious. Unsure if they are “good enough” or “sexy enough” to have their photos taken. But as we begin the session and I guide them through poses and lighting, I can see their confidence grow. I watch as they begin to see themselves in a new light, appreciating the beauty and power of their own bodies.
Form of Self-Care
While these photos may be shared with a significant other, the primary purpose is typically for the client themselves to feel confident and empowered. I have had clients tell me that the experience was a form of self-care or self-love. It’s a way for them to celebrate their body and feel more confident in their own skin. And the resulting photos serve as a reminder of this empowerment and self-love. Helping individuals to feel more confident and positive about themselves long after the photo session has ended.
Acknowledging that a boudoir empowerment photo session is often more of a gift to the client than for someone else reinforces the importance of self-love and self-care. It encourages more people to embrace their own beauty and celebrate their bodies without feeling the need to seek validation or approval from others. As a boudoir photographer, I am grateful to be a part of this empowering journey with my clients.
