When is it the right time to choose to do something incredible for yourself? Is it after a break up? Or after you’ve hit a milestone? Perhaps. Although good reasons to give yourself an incredible opportunity to empower yourself, the answer from me is, no. The time to do something incredible for yourself is right now. Simply because you will never be just as you are at this very moment, again. I know that’s a scary thought. Constantly changing, our bodies are unique in every moment.
Boudoir is not necessarily about celebrating a time, per say, but rather celebrating ourselves as we are at this moment in time. If you really think about it, time is the only thing we have absolutely no control over. Time is going to pass, even when we feel that it is standing still. Boudoir is not about having to reach a goal in order to show yourself some love. Everything in boudoir, is about unconditional love. We want to feel a love so deep that it’s absolutely impossible to tear away from us. It’s important that we allow that love, to be self love.
“Be grateful for what you already have while you pursue your goals.
If you aren’t grateful for what you already have, what makes you think you would be happy with more.”
―Roy T. Bennett
Too often, I see women forcing themselves to wait to pursue boudoir. Whether it be they are waiting to make changes in their weight, or waiting for a significant other, it’s common for women to assume that boudoir has boundaries. There are no boundaries when it comes to timing your boudoir photoshoot. You can literally have a boudoir photoshoot at any time in your life and it will be something you cherish for the rest of it. Why does the woman you are aspiring to be, deserve self love any more than the woman you are right now? You are strong. You are sexy. You should put that above all else. Empower yourself and watch your life change.
There are many things that I say are not reasons to hold yourself back from boudoir. Age, time and location are some of the reasons women give when they talk about why they simply “can’t” give themselves the gift of boudoir. Let’s go ahead and remove “can’t” from our vocabulary. Especially when we speak about self love. Because let’s face it, you can. You can do anything.
Some women live in other cities, states and countries. Guess what? Distance is just distance. It’s very possible to travel for boudoir. You just have to want it. You have to want it badly enough to be willing make a journey to take a journey. It’s worth it. You are worth it. Don’t let distance be the thing that keeps you from experiencing something that’s completely about you.
When it comes to age, let’s laugh together when I say this – Age can hold you back from boudoir. *cue laughter*. I get a kick out of that joke because the truth is, it sure can’t. I photograph women of ALL ages. Well, the ones who are adults, anyway. Whether you are 18 or 81, I will photograph you as long as it’s something that you want and would feel empowered by. Age should absolutely not be something that you think of as a set back. You have lived a life, regardless of how long it has been. That’s something worth documenting.
It doesn’t matter where you’re from or what kind of lifestyle you live. Boudoir is for you. Any woman. From anywhere in the world. Regardless of distance and time. Your time to shine is right now. Why? Because you DESERVE it. You should feel on top of the world. Actually, you should feel on top of YOUR world. You should look at yourself and think that you are phenomenal. Boudoir is about being empowered as you are. Boudoir loves your curves, dimples, muscles and every inch of your skin. You should, too.
