Common Excuses to Not Do A Boudoir Shoot

Fear and excuses are the two most common things that hold anyone back from making a choice that could change their entire life. It is easier to avoid something and make an excuse to not partake than to actually take a leap and just live your life. I think it is safe to say that all women have to factor in a multitude of reasoning with every choice we make, but if it is a choice that improves your mental health and your love for who you are, how bad can it really be? In this article the goal is to show you some typically given reasons not to book your Boudoir experience, lets debunk those so you can get back to reaching that full esteem you have searched for!

Retro Boudoir Session

“I need to Lose Weight”

Let us begin this with saying that whoever decided to say that a camera will add 10 pounds is simply spreading false information! The beauty of having a professional photographer take your boudoir pictures is that they know how to work the camera and lighting to hide those extra pounds you do not want to be seen. You are beautiful, you are unique. Do not make excuses that will prevent you from seeing that gorgeous woman you have convinced yourself is not there.

“I do not know how to act Sexy”

Listen up, you have this fierce vixen inside of you, she is in there. Once you get your hair done, makeup, and put on that show stopper attire you will see her. You have tucked her away because the world has told you beautiful is one way, and that just is not true. Each and every woman has a distinct feature about them that makes you stand apart from the rest. You have to find it and work it girl! Do not be shy, the camera is your friend and you are the star of the show! Your photographer will be sure that you are comfortable and ready to make the camera your new pal on your path to self discovery. Do not be afraid you are in good hands, and not to mention no one will see your session pics unless you want them too, so have fun with it and live your best life!

” I do not have anyone to give sexy photos too”

This is a very common excuse among women who are trying to talk themselves out of a Boudoir session. Let me just say, there is no rule that you have to do these for ANYONE! The entire reason for doing a boudoir photo session is for you and you alone, of course you can gift them to someone if you so choose, but you mainly need to focus on the fact this is for you and your self confidence. This is your reminder you can look at and remember that woman and how fierce and in love with herself she was in that moment, and you will remember who you are. It is hard to explain the power of these snap shots, you really cannot understand it until you let yourself just do it!

Excuses don’t look good on anyone

Wear pride and be excited about who you are, feel beautiful and let your life be changed by one simple choice to step out of your comfort zone. The excuses you have can all be debunked by just doing the session. All you thought you felt will be changed and your entire attitude will change. Every woman has sex appeal, book your session and find where yours has been hiding all this time!
