Top six reasons why your mind is not letting you book a boudoir shoot

EXCUSE #1

"I have no self esteem. I've (gained weight, aged, stopped working out, I'm too thin, I have mom boobs, etc) and I don't feel confident in myself at all. I could never do a boudoir shoot."

This is probably the most common excuse I hear for why someone won't book a boudoir shoot. Ladies I'm here to BLOW THAT EXCUSE right out of the water!

A boudoir photo shoot is about so much more than just the shape of your body. It's my job to make you comfortable so I can capture your genuine personality, make you laugh, make your eyes sparkle and bring out all the other quirks that make you "YOU". I use expert posing, lighting, lens choice, wardrobe, and image composition to make you look amazing in your images.

You are not defined by your size, so don't let it keep you from feeling good about the incredible woman you are. During your experience, you'll feel uplifted, rejuvenated, and (GASP) confident!!! You might even surprise yourself when you realize that it's actually YOU on the back of my camera (because I show you sneak peeks as we go). Do you think THAT will affect you? Your marriage? Your husband? Absolutely. 

EXCUSE #2

I'M NOT YOUNG ENOUGH FOR THAT

You have so much life experience that should be celebrated! I have photographed women of all ages, and quite a few of my favorite shoots are of women over the age of 50.

I love shooting older women because they have a certain sensuality and confidence that comes only with age and experience.

Come and prove that although youth doesn't last, beauty does.

Excuse #3

I DON'T HAVE ANYTHING SEXY TO WEAR

GIRL, I've got you covered (or actually uncovered lol).

A Boudoir Shoot does not require you to go and buy a whole new closet full of lingerie. 

However, Boudoir is not about reinventing yourself or having to wear anything you don't feel comfortable in. While it can be a good excuse to buy some new bras or panties, my favorite way to photograph women is in their favorite everyday outfit.

Excuse #4

I'm not sure I can afford this.

A boudoir session, to me, is SO much more than photos. I believe in the power of what I do SO much, that there is more info coming your way specifically breaking down how this WILL affect you (and those around you) in so many ways. That being said, there are multiple options for payment that are custom to each budget. Check on my website for more info Click here.

Excuse #5

I want to book, but I want to keep my photos private. Is that an option?

I only share photos with a signed release from each client, so you can trust that your booty is safe with me :) I offer several options on my model release form for you to choose from!

Last, but not least Excuse #6

How do I know how to pose?

One of the biggest things I hear women say is "I don't know how to pose Missy, so you'll have to help me." - I got you! Down to how your toes are pointed, I will be helping you look (and FEEL) your best. It's going to be great! All you have to do, is trust me:) I know all the tricks to create the most flattering angles for you, no matter what shape or size you are.

I firmly believe in the power a boudoir session has to transform a woman's doubt in herself, into confidence. I've seen it happen before my eyes, and I know it will happen for you. Give me the chance to show you that you are a unique, beautiful woman, and you will walk away from this experience more confident and powerful than you were.
