San Antonio Boudoir Photography - 4 Reasons You Are Ready
May 11, 2019 | By: Lauren Fryer
A Boudoir Session is not a traditional portrait session. We don't set a date, meet at a location, take a few shots and go from there. A Boudoir Session is more than that, it is an Experience. You are more than likely always "ready" for a traditional portrait session; but you may not feel "ready" for a Boudoir Session. Let me tell you 4 reasons why you actually are ready!
You DON'T need to loose weight!
Yes, you read that right, you do not need to loose any weight before doing a boudoir session. That may sound a little crazy, but it is true! If you just had a baby, and you want to shed those extra baby pounds, then I get it. But you don't need to be a certain size just to do a boudoir session.
Good boudoir photographers will know how to pose you, and what angles to shoot at to enhance those beautiful curves. Not only do we know the poses that work best for your body type, but we can also give you awesome tips about what kind of lingerie looks best.
This is why the pre-shoot consultation is very important, and why you will always have at least one with us :) You will need to discuss clothing options, and what you feel comfortable in. What part(s) of your body do you are not in love with; and more importantly, what part of your body do you absolutely love and what to show off.
Also think about why you are doing this session, and who is it for? If you are doing it for yourself, then there is no time like the present to do something for you. You need to learn to love the body you have been given, and celebrate it in all its beauty. If you are doing it for a significant other, then chances are they love your body just as it is, and would love to see you rocking some sexy clothes in that beautiful bod.
Rock the gorgeous body you have, celebrate it and what it has given you, and bring out the inner sexy by doing a boudoir session.
You DON'T need to know how to pose
There are way more people in the world that don't know how to pose like the models you see on TV (or shoot, even the images you may find on Pinterest when searching "boudoir"). This is why you go to a professional. A great boudoir photographer is not going to put the camera up to their eye and say "GO", they are there to help guide you and even show you what poses they want.
Guess what, this is not as easy as a normal family portrait session :) Many of my girls when they are done have told me "this is like a yoga workout"! They are sore the next day, and feel like they did some kind of workout with me. That is a good thing! Poses for boudoir do involve a lot of arching, leg lifting, booty poppin', and arm lifting; but don't fret, we know it may feel awkward and strange, but I promise it does look good.
You can practice poses at home all you want, but I can promise you, it probably won't help. As long as you listen and follow directions, you will do fantastic. You don't have to know how to pose like a model to look like one - that is what we photographers are here for.
It's time to come OUT of your shell.
I get it, you are they (I can be too), so thinking of doing a boudoir session seems like something you are not "fit" for. It may be hard to think of yourself as a "sexy" person or that you are not in the right shape for it. Guess what, it's time to take that little voice that is telling you that, and say "ENOUGH!"
Now is the time to push the boundaries and get in front of the camera! You will be so amazed with the gorgeous bombshell in the pictures, and walk out a confident and empowered woman.
You ARE worth it!
We women tend to put others needs and wants in front of our own, and that's ok! We are wired to help everyone while sacrificing our personal time and all of our energy. Now it is time to spoil yourself, and do something that will change you forever.
A boudoir session is way more than just posing for the camera. It is a day of pampering and being treated like a celebrity. It is about the experience.
You will get you hair and makeup done while wearing a silk robe and drinking champagne (or another drink of choice). Then you will get to play dress up with sexy and fun outfits while being posed like a true model. After the session, before seeing any images, you will have a level of self confidence that you didn't even know was there. That self confidence is going to sky rocket when you see those images. You will finally be able to see yourself the way you should, the way your partner sees you, and the way the world sees you.
