When I started doing boudoir photography here in Florida less than a year ago, I noticed that almost every single reaction I had from women who REALLY wanted to do a session went something like this: “Oh my gosh Nichole, I would absolutely LOVE to do this but…..”
“I need to lose weight first.”
“I don’t have anyone to do it for.”
“I can’t afford it.”
or some other fear they had about why they couldn’t do it.
Does this sound like what’s going on in your head too? Well guess what lady Jane? I’m here to tell you that all of those things you’re worrying about, are TOTALLY legitimate fears, but they’re just not true. Want to make a bet? Ok, let’s start with one.
Fear of doing boudoir #1: “I don’t know how to look sexy.”
The truth is, every woman is sexy in her own way. Some women feel more confident with a sexy little smile, and some want a more sultry look. The day of your shoot will be fun and relaxing for you. You don’t have to worry about looking a specific way or study all the Pinterest boards about posing for boudoir (so stop it!). That’s MY job and what you're going to pay me to do! I will pose you in ways that accentuate your best features, and I even know how to have you breathe so that you don’t have any resting b**ch face going on! Hahah!! By bringing out your personality through your experience with me, your photos will only show your confident, sexy self!
So, do you still think you need to know how to look sexy before you book a boudoir session? I didn't think so. Go ahead, take a minute and say "You're right Nichole." I'll wait right here.... :)
