When we get nervous, we make excuses. We make excuses not to love ourselves or take care of ourselves. Sometimes life is just busy, we are too crazy at work, or always have to drive someone SOMEWHERE. Sometimes it's more important to spend time with our spouse. We also use excuses like, "I wanna lose 15 lbs. first!" and "I just don't have the money right now!" I wanted to write this to show you all that no matter the excuse, you CAN do it! Let me show you that no matter the excuse, you are worthy of self love.
"I don't have enough time for myself"
It's also important to remember if you're not taking care of yourself mentally, you're not going to be able to handle taking care of everyone else, which makes sense but is actually much harder said than done! Sometimes I am the WORST at making sure I am giving myself mental health breaks and that's why I think it's important to share this with you all. I make the same excuses as above and sometimes I need someone to look me in the face and say, "Slow down, give yourself a break, breathe for a minute!"
At a boudoir shoot you are able to breathe and love yourself for a few hours. Think of all the energy you'll save on a daily basis if you stop comparing yourself to others, or stop worrying about what other people think of how you look. You get to see where your beauty really comes from and this lifts such a huge mental weight.
You need to take time for yourself, why not spend it having an amazing time and getting glammed up for once?
"I'm not where I want to be weight wise/I don't fit the media's idea of a good enough size"
Did you know that the body type portrayed in advertising as the ideal is possessed naturally by only 5% of American females? ONLY FIVE PERCENT.
I will say this over and over again (and sorry, not sorry if you've heard me say it before) but WHY do you have to be a certain size to LOVE yourself? WHY do you have to fit a strangers messed up idea of a perfect body to LOVE your own body? WHY are you comparing your size to everyone else, when no 2 women are the same!
I think it's amazing to have goals and want to get healthy, but does that mean you have to hate your body 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're going! Have a boudoir shoot to celebrate where you are now and then have one when you lose that 15lbs. to celebrate how far you've come.
"I never feel sexual or sensual anymore so a boudoir shoot must not be for me"
This excuse is actually the exact reason you SHOULD do a boudoir shoot.
Often times we lose touch of our femininity or sexuality when life gets crazy busy because of work/kids/health. It happens a lot and it is absolutely normal and ok! A great way to rediscover this side of ourselves again is to invest in a boudoir shoot - put that spark back in yourself! I can show you that you have it somewhere inside yourself, and it might even ignite a spark between you and your spouse!
Another thing to remember is that you dont HAVE to wear super sexy lingerie. If you feel like this doesn't show your personality, there are so many other outfit options! If you need ideas I will gladly give you some pointers or you can head to our blog post here for some ideas.
"A boudoir shoot is an investment and I don't have the money right now."
Yes, a boudoir shoot IS an investment, but it's an investment in yourself. You're investing into your confidence, your well-being, everything that is you. And the best news? We offer payment plans as well as PayPal Credit & Affirm! In order to book your shoot, there is a booking retainer. After that, we can setup your payment plan to break up the investment. If you have any questions about a payment plan, we will go over everything while setting up your shoot!
