Boudoir is a growing trend, especially in the wedding industry and more and more people are doing it! I think that’s great and very exciting as I absolutely love Boudoir and think that not only should more people become aware, they should partake too! It really is an amazing way to look good and feel great about yourself. Doing a boudoir shoot can give you confidence you never knew you had, and with the right photographer you will feel completely at ease while shooting.
I think it’s important when choosing to do something like this that you do it for yourself foremost, and then think of others. A lot of brides have Boudoir shoots to give as gifts and I think this is a lovely idea, it’s a cheeky little reminder of you on the morning of the wedding and pictures that he will treasure. However I have heard of some brides ‘forcing themselves’ to do it for their husbands to be or because they think they should. Honestly, that’s not what Boudoir is about, it’s about having fun, feeling sexy, and it should be empowering. You should only do it if you want to and not because you feel like you have to!
On the other hand, don’t even feel you are not the right age, weight, body shape or whatever hang ups you have about your body. Boudoir helps you to celebrate your body for what it is and shows you how beautiful you really are. During a Boudoir shoot, all your best features are focused on (and don’t tell me you don’t have any!), whether it’s your lovely long legs, your toned tummy, or stunning smile! You will be made to feel as beautiful as you are and come away feeling elated and positive about the way you look.
And if that doesn’t persuade you – check these images out!
