Busting Excuses

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, or obstable, you are worth of self love!

"I don't have enough time for myself"

It's also important to remember that if you aren't 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 so 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 on 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 abou what other people will think of how you look. You get to see wehre 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 an dgetting glammed up for a change?

"I'm not where I want to be weight/size wise"

Did you know that the body type portrayed in advertising as the "ideal" is possessed naturally by only 5% of the American female population?!?! 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 stranger's skewed 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 that you can be proud of where you're going. Have a boudoir shoot to celebrate and commemorate where you are now, and then have one when you do lose that 15 lbs to celebrate how far you've come!

"I never feel sexy or sensual anymore, so a boudoir shoot must not be fore me."


This excuse is actually the EXACT reason you SHOULD do a boudoir shoot.

Often times we lose touch with our femininity or sexuality when life gets crazy because of health/kids/work. It happens a lot and it is absolutely normal and okay! A great way to find this side of ourself again is to have a boudoir shoot done to reignate that spark in us. I can show you that you have that inside you somewhere, and it might even ignite a spark between you and your spouse as well!

Another thing to remember is that you don't HAVE ot wear super sexy clothing/lingerie. If you feel like this doesn't show your personality, then there are so many other outfit ideas. If you need ideas, I will gladly talk to you about them, or you can check out our blog on finding outfits HERE!

"A boudoir shoot is an investment and I don't have all that money right now."

Yes, a boudoir shoot IS an investment. It is also an investment in yourself. You are investing in your mental and emotional well-being, and confidence as well! To make this experience attainable to everyone who truly wants it, we do offer payment plans as well! There is a session retainer fee in order to book your shoot, this fee can be split into two payments. Image and product collections are purchased separately. Whether you want to start paying towards a collection of your choice before your session to get your products sooner, or whether you plan to decide on your collection after your shoot and set up an in house payment plan from there, we have payment plans and options for every budget. We're happy to announce that we now also partner with Paypal Credit, Affirm, AfterPay, and Klarna! This makes it easy to spread your payments out over time (up to 36 months) but to also receive your images and products immediately after your session so there's no wait! If you have any questions about our payment plans, send us a note when you're setting up your shoot!
