Why do women come in for sessions?
There are many different reasons: birthdays, anniversaries, milestones, but some reasons are much more emotional.
For example, I had a client schedule a session for her boyfriend and then nearly cancel because she found out he was cheating on her. I told her to come in anyway because looking good is always the best revenge.
By the time she came in, they were back together again. She was choosing to stay as an expression of love and commitment to work on the relationship.
It was a much needed reminder that she is truly worthy and beautiful.
A boudoir session can be a reminder that the things you believe you "lack" have nothing to do with your spouse or significant other’s actions.
Other women in the same situation come to me because they’re going through a divorce or leave their significant other. Their boudoir session serves as a way to reconnect with themselves and their sexuality.
I've had women come in who have lost a significant amount of weight, but still identify with the "before" weight-loss version of themselves. They still find themselves gravitating to plus-sized clothing and rejecting styles that are body-conscious because they don't feel they can pull them off, but seeing photos of themselves in their new body helps them get comfortable with the idea of being a smaller size.
Still others may come in after they’ve had surgery of some kind . The boudoir session helps empower them to feel beautiful and whole again.
In a way, a boudoir session is a kind of therapy. You can funnel your fears and pain into something positive, and more importantly, ART!
