Okay, so you’ve decided to do a boudoir photography shoot. Congratulations! Maybe you’ve already discussed this with your closest girlfriends. Maybe just with your significant other, or with no one at all. As the day approaches, should you let others in on your big plans?
For me, the answer is always yes! Because I think that boudoir photography is an empowering thing to do, I will always say share the wonderful things you do for yourself, and encourage others to do the same! But I know that it can be a delicate topic, so here are my reasons to share, and my reasons to keep your shoot private.
It’s so fun! Tell everyone. Shout it from the rooftops, and bring your girlfriends over for drinks to admire your lovely photos. After all, you’re beautiful (I promise!) and that’s always fun to share.
Make your shoot a party, and encourage all your besties to do it with you. I do some boudie parties, where you and a bunch of your girlfriends come in and have a little party where we all hang out and snap some photos! Then sharing your boudoir experience becomes a fun bonding session!
If you’re not comfortable with the idea of everyone knowing that you’re doing a boudoir shoot, or if you think that your friends won’t be supportive of the idea, by all means keep it to yourself! Hopefully, you have at least some friends who are supportive of everything that you do that you can share the fun news with!
Also this is your thing. It’s to make you feel good, and strong, and beautiful. Doing it for yourself, means you don’t have to tell anyone else about it. If you feel good, that will show, without sharing all the details!
At the end of the day, what and how much you choose to share is entirely up to you. Do I think boudoir photography is awesome and totally something to be proud of? Yes!
I hope that no matter whether you choose to tell one person or a hundred that you feel like your boudoir shoot is something really special and fun. I try my hardest to make everything memorable for you so that you have a really awesome day to remember!
"Anne is an incredibly talented photographer, and her passion for capturing beautiful memories really shines through during her boudoir sessions. She really takes that time to make sure you're comfortable, and I honestly felt so glamorous and confident. This photo shoot was such an empowering thing to do! (and honestly...it was really fun to get all dolled up and pretend to be a supermodel for the day!) I highly recommend Anne and Bmore Boudoir."
"Working with Anne was absolutely amazing! Anne is very knowledgeable and gave wonderful advice. Even though Anne was a lot of fun and very laid back, she ensured she exuded professionalism always. I was so nervous to do a boudoir shoot and was lacking some serious confidence. Anne has a special way with her that made me feel not only comfortable, but confident and sexy! The pictures were beautiful and very tasteful. I cannot wait to work with Anne again!"
"Working with you was incredible!! You were so laid back, made me feel comfortable and beautiful in my skin. I didn't feel like I needed to cover up or hide at all. Your direction and energy was exactly what I needed to have a successful shoot. I chose YOU to do the session because I felt like you would put me at ease and we'd just have FUN during the shoot, and I was right ;) Having finished and leaving that day I felt empowered and absolutely gorgeous, like I could take on anything life threw at me haha! I was super excited to get the photos back and share them with my hunny, and he LOVED them! No complaints there <3"
