Why Do a Boudoir Photoshoot? Because Boudoir Photography Is All About The Authentic You

Why do a boudoir photoshoot? Because it’s so much more than just taking sexy pictures. When people think about boudoir photography, they think of women in sexy lingerie posing for a photoshoot in a bedroom setting.

While that’s part of the session, boudoir photography isn’t just about modeling in sexy clothes. It’s also about women going on a journey of self-discovery and loving themselves in their own skin. It’s about experiencing new aspects of themselves they didn’t realize existed, and best of all: it’s all about women being their authentic selves!

Still not sure why you should do a boudoir photoshoot? We’ve got 3 top reasons below! Keep reading!

Why Do Boudoir Photoshoot? It Can Help With Self-Discovery

Women who choose to do a boudoir session do so for a wide variety of reasons. They come from many different walks of life and bring many different stories to the table.

Some choose to do a boudoir photoshoot as a sexy gift for their significant other and other women do it as a sexy gift for themselves. Some women do boudoir as a way of empowering themselves after experiencing hardship in their lives, others do it to feel sexy, and others do it because they want to explore different aspects of themselves.

Whatever the case may be, boudoir is an experience of a lifetime for many women. Many who choose to do a session end up learning new things about themselves and can even feel transformed by their experience. Some even decide to come back for more sessions and some even decide to do boudoir for a living and become boudoir photographers themselves.

A Boudoir Photoshoot Can Help You Love Yourself in Your Own Skin

Another reason why you should do a boudoir photoshoot is women feeling comfortable in their own skin and loving themselves as they are. During a boudoir session, women are never judged for their appearance; it is celebrated instead. Women who come to a boudoir session are treated with the utmost respect and are in complete control of how they want to present themselves. 

When choosing what to wear, women can either choose an outfit or prop that speaks to them from the studio closet, or they can bring their own outfits and props from home. Since boudoir prioritizes women’s comfort, women are never coerced into doing anything outside of their comfort zone. Boudoir is all about women feeling beautiful in their own skin and celebrating that feeling. 

You Can Be Your Authentic Self

The best aspect of the boudoir experience is artistic expression, not just for the photographer, but the woman herself. The photographer uses their artistic eye to help realize a woman’s creative vision during her session. Whichever way the woman wants to express herself artistically is entirely dependent on her personality, her individual style, tastes, and preferences, even life experiences. 

Boudoir is all about embracing authenticity and not about conforming to any particular standards of beauty. In boudoir photography, all types of beauty are celebrated, even encouraged. Boudoir is also not about replacing a woman’s reality with someone else’s idea of fantasy. At the end of the day, boudoir is about women taking ownership of their own stories and presenting those stories as they actually are, whether they choose to share that with the world or just with themselves.
