What comes to mind when you think of self-care? Probably bubble baths, exercise classes, healthy smoothies, journaling, and other stuff along those lines. These are all great examples of self-care, but sometimes the best things you can do for yourself are a little more outside of the box.
Many women, for instance, wouldn’t think of boudoir photography as a form of self-care, but it’s actually a great way to give yourself some much-needed love and leisure. If you’ve been looking for an excuse to book a boudoir session, here are a few ways the experience can help you reach your self-care goals!
Set aside time just for you.
A boudoir shoot is all about YOU. Think of it as an hour and a half of “me time” carved into your schedule and dedicated to looking and feeling amazing. For once, you can make yourself the priority without worrying about taking care of anyone else’s needs.
Treat yourself to some pampering.
Need a reason to get all dolled up? Boudoir is a great excuse to pamper yourself in ways you normally wouldn’t! Many studios include professional hair and makeup services in their packages, give you a glass of champagne during your shoot, and encourage you to treat yourself to some cute new lingerie or other outfits that make you feel sexy.
Let go and have fun.
During your boudoir session, your photographer will give you direction and encouragement that helps you let go of your inhibitions. You’ll need to relax and let go enough to get in tune with your body, mind, and soul—that’s how you’ll get the best photos! This makes boudoir a great stress and anxiety reliever and overall cathartic experience.
Embrace your beauty.
Boudoir is a celebration of your body, strength, sexiness, and accomplishments. It will make you feel beautiful inside and out, providing a confidence boost that will last long after you leave the studio. Then after that, when you have one of those days where you can’t stand your reflection in the mirror, you’ll have an album of gorgeous photos to remind you of just how amazing and empowered you are.
When you book a boudoir photo session at The Pouting Room, we’ll make sure you have a self-care experience unlike any other. Your shoot and the images revealed after will serve as a long-lasting reminder that you are beautiful, powerful, and uniquely you.
