When we get nervous, we make excuses. We make excuses not to love ourselves or take care of ourselves. Sometimes life is just plain BUSY, or things are crazy at work, or we always have to drive someone somewhere! Sometimes it’s more important to spend time with your spouse. We also use excuses like “I wanna lose 15 pounds first” and “I just don’t have the money right now”. I wanted to write this to show you that no matter the excuse… you CAN do it! Let me show you that no matter the excuses, you are WORTHY of self love.

“I don’t have enough time for myself”
It’s also important to remember that if you aren’t taking care of yourself mentally, you’re not going to be able to handle taking care of everyone else – I speak from experience on this. I, myself can be the worst at making sure I give myself mental breaks and that’s why I think it’s so important to share this with you. I make the same excuses as above and sometimes I need someone to look me in the eyes and say. “SLOW DOWN” – thankfully, I have a mom that does just that! ha ha I can hear her voice now.
It’s important to take time to focus on just you. At. boudoir shoot you are able to do just that. Take a day to breath, relax, and focus on loving yourself for the day. Think of all that energy you will save on a daily basis if you stop comparing yourself to others, or stop worrying what other people will think of how you look. You get to see where your beauty really comes from and this lifts such a huge mental weight off of women when they do it!
You need to take time for yourself, why not spend it having am amazing time getting glammed up for once?
“I’m not where I want to be weight wise / I don’t fit society’s idea of good enough”
I could literally write a book about all my feelings on this! Thankfully, the media is starting to turn around portraying real women, but the damage has already been done to so many of us. Di you know that only 5% of women fit into the mold of “perfect body” that is portrayed in advertising? ONLY FIVE PERCENT.
I will say it tillI’m blue in the face(and sorry, not sorry if you’ve heard me say it before) but you DON’T have to be a certain size to love yourself! You don’t have to fit into a strangers messed up idea of a perfect body to LOVE your own body. Why are you comparing your size and shape to everyone else when no 2 women are the same?
I think it’s amazing to have goals and want to be healthy(trust me, as an emotional eater, it’s never ending for me), but does that mean you have to hate your body in order to do those things? Absolutely NOT! You should love yourself every step of the way. Be proud of where you are so you can be proud of where you are doing. Have a boudoir shoot to celebrate where you are NOW, and then have one when you lose those 15 pounds to celebrate how far you’ve come.
“I never feel sexy or sensual anymore so a boudoir shoot isn’t for me.”
This excuse is the exact reason WHY you should do a boudoir shoot.
Often times we lose touch with our femininity or sexuality when life gets crazy. We can get seriously stuck in a routine and it’s hard to get out of it. It happens to everyone at some point or another and it’s totally normal and okay. A great way to find this side of ourselves again is to have a boudoir shoot to out that spark back in us. I can’t tell you how many women leave the studio saying how sexy they feel and they can’t wait to get home to their partner 😉
Another thing to remember is you don’t HAVE to wear super sexy clothing/lingerie. If that doesn’t show your personality, then there are TONS of other choices out there for you! I am hear to help every step of the way and give ideas and feedback 😉
“A boudoir shoot is an investment and I don’t have all that money right now.”
Yes, a boudoir shoot IS an investment. It is also an investment in yourself. You are investing in your wellbeing and confidence as well! Also, I do offer in-house, interest free pre payment plans! In order to book your session, there is a booking retainer, and after that, we can set up your prepayment plan and start planning your dream shoot! If you have any questions about this I’d love to chat!!
