5 Benefits of Boudoir: How Self-Image Pours Into the Rest of Your Life

Should you do boudoir?

One of our frequently asked questions is, “Do you think boudoir photography is right for me?”

The simple answer? Yes, yes — a thousand times yes!

A boudoir session is all about self-love and empowerment. Our clients find that the boost in self-image results in long-term effects that spill over into all aspects of your life!

Here’s a few of the life-changing benefits of boudoir.


1. Boudoir Promotes Positive Self-Image

How we think about ourselves affects how we feel about ourselves — it’s how we interact with others and the world around us.

A positive self-image can boost our physical, mental, social, emotional, and spiritual well-being and flow into all of our relationships. The powerful feelings from a boudoir shoot can lead to more confidence at work, intimacy in romantic relationships, and an overall boost in mood!

But don’t take it from us — hear from the amazing monarchs that have visited our Massena boudoir photography studio.

2. Boudoir Helps You Be More Vulnerable

It takes courage to be unapologetically yourself, to be fierce in your self-love, and to be vulnerable in front of a camera. Letting your guard down and embracing yourself and your body will make you feel so proud and powerful!

By looking and feeling beautiful during your boudoir session, you’ll leave with your head held high and feeling confident to take on the rest of your life. Once you see the photos, you will ask yourself, “Why did I wait so long to do this!?”

As far as we’re concerned, every woman that walks into our boudoir studio is a goddess, and we’ll make sure you know it! With your hair styled, makeup done and dressed in lingerie, you’ll be exuding confidence during and after your experience.

3. Boudoir Gives You Powerful Memories

The best client feedback I’ve gotten is how much women love to revisit their shoots! You can hang the photos on your wall, show off your badass experience, or keep the photos safe and sound.

No matter what, you’ll always have the memories.

Boudoir photography lets you revisit the time when you never felt more alive. It’s a reminder of the powerful woman you are.

4. Boudoir Enhances Relationships

When you love yourself, you love others deeper.

Feeling confident after a shoot may strengthen your confidence with your partner, inside and outside of the bedroom. Giving yourself positive affirmations will remind you to also boost your friends up!

However, your most important relationship is with you. Boudoir photography is a path to self-discovery, self-love, and so much more.

5. Boudoir Reminds You Who You Are

Boudoir photography shows women as they really are: not what others want them to be or what think they should be. That means you — your authentic self in your perfectly, imperfect body.

Think of all you have done and will do. This is a celebration of you, your strength, your beauty, and your femininity in every form.

When you leave your session, you’ll leave with the knowledge of your own personal power.
