I WANT YOU TO BLOW YOURSELF UP | VERO BEACH, FLORIDA BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHER

A few weeks ago a client walked into my office before her reveal session and said

“Nichole, I’m not buying anything but an album. I don’t want to blow up a huge print of myself.”

I WANTED to say “WHY THE HELL NOT???” But instead, I looked at her and said “Why don’t you wait until you see your pictures first?? You might see one that you love.” 

I’m happy to say, she ordered the largest metal print I sell for her bedroom wall:)

I guess I can think of a few reasons you might not want to blow yourself up into a 20x30 gorgeous, sleek, black and white metal print for your home.. so I’m going to speak on them right now, and then shut them all down so you have no more excuses for why you can’t.

IT’S NARCISSISTIC

Bull. I don't know where you are in life, but the majority of my clients are in their mid 20’s to late 30’s, with the occasional 40 or 50 year old sprinkled in there. Most of those woman are moms, who are known to eat pb&j crusts for dinner.

If you’re a mom to multiple kids, you probably have very little time to yourself, and I’m willing to bet rarely feel pretty enough to take a selfie and post it on social media. 

But you’re going to spend the day having your hair AND makeup done by professionals. You’re going to look and feel your BEST, and you don't think you should be reminded of how good it felt every, single, day??

BLOW. YOURSELF. UP.

YOU DON’T WANT YOUR KIDS/FRIENDS/FAMILY TO SEE

9 times out of 10 there’s at least 1 photo from a session that is “family friendly.” Even if there isn’t, how awesome would it be to

hang that baby up behind the clothes in your closet so that when you go to reach for your Lularoe, you can motivate yourself to actually blow dry your hair and put on some makeup today?

BLOW. YOURSELF. UP.

I’M NOT GOING TO LIKE ANY OF MY PHOTOS ENOUGH TO LOOK AT EVERY DAY

If this is what you’re thinking, you haven’t had a boudoir session with me yet! There will be at least one, if not a lot more.

You’ll look at it and think “Wow, I’m a BADASS.” Like, turn on gangster rap badass..  THAT photo is the one you need on your wall.

You need it to remind yourself that you weren’t just a badass the day you got to play dress up. You’re that badass every single day, even when there are a million to do’s piled on top of you and you’ve got 3 days worth of dry shampoo in your hair. 

BLOW. YOURSELF. UP.

A GIFT FROM ME

Just to show you how I serious I am about this shiz, if you've had a session with me in the last 12 months and want to order a large print of yourself, I'll give you 40% off one large 24x30 metal print (regularly priced at $799) if you contact me about it in the next 48 hours.

WHEN WHITE LIES ARE OK | SEBASTIAN FLORIDA BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHER

“She called me on the DL, and only texted me after 10 pm while she was upstairs in her office “working.””

White lacy bra, window light boudoir 

This might sound like something Andrew would say about Mellie (where my Scandal girls at???), but it’s actually about one of my clients:) As much as I constantly reiterate how you should be doing a boudoir session for your damn SELF, it’s also really fun to do one as a surprise for your significant other.

But. Pulling off a scheme like this won’t be easy. And it won't happen without a little sneakiness on your part.

And I mean really, how can you create a totally sensual, sexy surprise without a few white lies? You might have to muffle a few phone calls, lie…(scratch that, let’s use the word fib)… FIB about where you’re going, and

keep a bit more from your paycheck in your bank account than you usually do (because let’s be honest, you deserve that shit anyway!)

but I guarantee it will be worth it.

Just imagine him. Sitting there on the couch all cozy with his dog watching the game. He gets a text and sees it’s from… You? Sitting on the couch right beside him. He’s curious and looks at you..

“Did you just text me?” 

You: “Mmmhmm.”

(you’re feeling a little bit anxious at this point and you’re hoping he doesn’t see you flush, or feel your heart about to thump out of your chest.)

He reads your text with confusion on his face: “Check out these pics.. Password: yourname2017”

He looks back at you. “What IS this??”

Your palms are getting sweaty now.

You’re thinking… “What the hell did I do? What if he doesn’t like them? What if he’s mad about how much I spent?”

He finally sees your photos and..

“Oh. My. GOD…..Baby! Is that YOU!?!? Holy SHIT!” 

Now, you have to promise that if you go this surprise route, you don’t get pissed at me when he cancels your dinner plans because

I guarantee he’s going to throw down right then and there.

But he’ll also probably agree that those few white lies you told him, were totally ok :)

Even though I wasn't there to see his reaction, I KNOW Miss B's hubby would have DIED when he opened the box to his Black Label Collection from NMB. Doesn't YOUR man deserve one too??

MY TOP 5 (ALMOST FREE) TIPS FOR INSTANTLY BOOSTING YOUR SELF ESTEEM | VERO BEACH BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHER | NICHOLE MARIE BOUDOIR

I am a boudoir photographer and as you can guess, 99% of my clients are women. Along with coaching my clients in order to capture the most gorgeous photos of them that they've ever seen, 

I'm subject to a) a lot of emotional background stories and b) client self scrutiny.

Literally every single woman comes to the studio with a complaint about herself. "I need to lose 10 pounds." "I hate my short legs." "My nose is too big." "My hair is too frizzy."  And this is only what they verbally express.

I know there's a whole laundry list of other issues my clients have that make them feel imperfect. The reason I know it is because I have them too.

But instead of focusing on the things we don't like about ourselves,

why don't we pump ourselves up and do things that make us feel GOOD

in this sexy body we've been given to utilize for the next ...eh... 70 years or so? 

I'd like to share with you today my top 5 (almost free) tips for instantly boosting that self esteem that maybe you've let sink down to the floor. 

Soft makeup and hair look for 40 year old women

TURN ON YOUR FAVORITE UP BEAT MUSIC

Ahh. Music therapy. There's nothing better than driving down the road on a warm sunny day, the wind blowing through your hair and your favorite song in your ears. When you're feeling down, an upbeat song can bring back memories of a good time you had and instantly boost your mood.  

GO FOR A RUN (OR DO YOUR FAVORITE EXERCISE) FOR 15 MINUTES

For me, running gives me the ultimate excuse to clear my head. In fact, I'll start with step 1 mentioned above and blast my favorite music before I start my jog. When I'm feeling down, a brisk run, breathing deeply, and thinking about all the current happenings in my life rejuvenates me and recharges my batteries if you will. If you're not into that or physically can't run, go for a swim, a brisk walk, or jump rope. Just do something to get your heart beat up and your mood will follow. 

GET A SPRAY TAN (but not before your boudoir session!)

We all know that when summer time comes around, bringing out those pasty white legs in public might make you feel like casper the ghost. Your confidence and body language will be affected by this insecurity and you won't feel good about yourself. But- take a trip to the local Mystic Tan and you'll walk out of there with your head held high and a renewed sense of "sexiness." (PS- did you know there's one in Sebastian, Florida now? Over at LUXE on 512. Tell them I sent you!)

PAINT YOUR FINGER/TOE NAILS

There's nothing like the feeling of a good ol' fashioned mani/pedi. I mean seriously girl, look at your fingers/toes. Is it time? Go. Go now and thank me later. 

TAKE 30 MINUTES AND DO YOUR HAIR/MAKEUP

Ugh this one is hard for me. Like probably the hardest one. Because I'm a mom and every moment I spend on myself, I'm thinking about all the other things I should be doing. But you know what? Self love isn't selfish.

And DAMN- folding that laundry is so much more enjoyable when I look good doing it and can check myself out walking past my mirror to put it away:)

*BONUS TIP* PUT ON YOUR FAVORITE PAIR OF JEANS AND SOME HEELS

Because you'll go from frumpy to goddess in 0.986554848 seconds and it wont cost you a dime. 

Got a tip you'd like to share? What do you do that makes you feel good when you need a boost of self esteem? Leave a comment :) And don't forget to share this post if you know someone who might benefit from it!

MY DREAM BECAME MY REALITY | VERO BEACH FLORIDA BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHER | NICHOLE MARIE BOUDOIR

Have you ever had a dream that you never thought would become a reality? It probably started out as a spark.. a thought.. just a flicker of imagination in the back of your mind. Your dream might have been something like "Wow, that guy at the bar is so handsome but he's out of my league." Or maybe it was "I need to lose 50 pounds to get into my wedding dress in 5 months." 

Whatever that dream was, it probably started evolving deep inside of your heart.. it became a goal, and something you developed a strong passion for. You might have become even a little bit obsessed with it- living, breathing, and working towards making that dream become a reality.

Well, a year ago I had a dream. My dream consisted of helping every single woman see the beauty in herself... Raw. Real. And Intimate. It was as simple and as small as that. 

I didn't know where it was going to take me, or if that dream would ever become a reality for me, and I definitely didn't think it would become such a huge part of my life that I wouldn't be able to handle it on my own..

But that's exactly what happened. 

My ability to keep up, ended. I was swamped with editing, consultations, emails, accounting, paperwork, orders.. the list goes on and on. And I was going out of my mind. Until I hired her....
