A Boudoir Session is about so much more than the gorgeous photos you get to take home. It is a celebration of your beauty and confidence. If you still need more reasons to experience a boudoir photoshoot for yourself, here are 7!

  1. You’re Getting Married

    First of all, congratulations! Give your significant other the ultimate engagement or wedding gift - some stunning images of yourself. Seriously, what could be better?

  2. You’re Celebrating an Anniversary

    Think that anniversary gifts are kind of boring? Paper, cotton, fruit  - YAWN! Surprise your love with a gift that is one of a kind.

  3. Body Transformation

    Have you lost weight, gained weight or been on a fitness journey? Did you get a new tattoo? Have you had a health scare? Reacquaint yourself with your body and celebrate where you are right now.

  4. You’re Pregnant!

    WOOHOO! This is definitely a time worth documenting. Celebrate yourself and your new little one with a Maternity Session

  5. You’re Not Feeling Your Best

    Seems backwards, right? Sometimes the best time to step out of your comfort zone is when you are feeling the most vulnerable. Seeing yourself through someone else’s eyes can be just the thing to get your confidence moving in the right direction.

  6. You’re Celebrating a Milestone

    Turning 30? Turning 40? Turning 32? What I’m trying to say is any birthday is a great time to get some bomb-ass photos of yourself. Milestones are the perfect time for a Boudoir Photo Shoot.

  7. You Just Want To!

    My favorite reason of all! Let’s face it, the other reasons are just excuses to do something nice for yourself! So skip straight to reason 7 and get some bold and beautiful photos - just because you want to!
