If you’ve considered doing a boudoir session but have not ‘pulled the trigger’ as yet you probably have at least some of the excuses that we have seen before. In this post we’ll go over the most common ones and why they should not stop you. These are excuses we have heard loads of times before the ‘I wish I had done this earlier’ which normally follows.
So, without further ado!
“There’s no way I’ll look as sexy as the other women in your photos.”
This is a common one, but what people don’t realise is that they are looking at women in our boudoir photos who, most of the time said exactly the same thing. We’ve done boudoir shoots with all sorts of women, from plumbers to teachers and welders to bankers. The vast majority of them had made this same excuse.
So, how do we make our clients look this gorgeous? We have a great team, we are really good at this and with a bit of coaching and a little confidence – you shine!
“I don’t want naked photos of myself to end up on the Internet.”
OK, firstly our clients are almost never naked! In 99% of our sessions you’ll be wearing more than you would on a beach!
Our clients images are very carefully handled and we do everything we can to ensure our client’s privacy. We do not publish any photos which we do not have express permission to post. Some clients are very happy to allow us to use their images on a facebook post or on our website. Some are not. It’s your choice and we fully respect that choice.
A while back we did some bridal boudoir photos with a beautiful amateur model. She was playing the bride in a burial expo and we did shots of her. We got some amazing shots and I loved the images but after the shoot she said she did not want them on the Internet as she was a teacher!!! Aaarrgghhh!!! I now have a set of fantastic images I can never publish but as I said, we take our client’s wishes and privacy seriously.
“Why spend the money when I don’t have anyone to do a boudoir session for.”
Well, you do actually have someone to do a boudoir session for – look in the mirror! A boudoir session can be a great confidence boost, it’s fun, it’s stepping a little outside of your comfort zone but our client’s tell us it’s a fun experience.
You don’t have to do it for someone else, in fact one of our clients said she loved her album so much she was going to keep it rather than give it to her partner! A boudoir session can really be a great experience and a boost.
“I don’t like to spend that much money on myself.”
We get it. It’s a luxury but we all deserve a little luxury every now and then. This excuse is normally made by Mums who always put everyone else’s needs ahead of their own and never take the time to spend on themselves.
We all have priorities but sometimes it’s a good idea to make ourselves a priority, just for a short time. Just to have a bit of a luxurious treat. Everyone around you knows you deserve a bit of luxury but you feel guilty about spending the time or the money to make it happen? You’ll be surprised how taking a break will make you feel. Even just an afternoon where you are the star of the show can really make you feel like a million dollars and that feeling is a memory that you’ll treasure.
And finally, Number 1 on our list.
“I’ve never done any modelling – I wouldn’t know what to do!”
That’s what we are here, we help you through every stage of the process and coach you through the various poses that we know look good. These vary by person, body type, confidence level etc. but we’ve been doing this long enough to help you get the most out of the session.
From the moment you contact us you can feel confident that you’re in safe hands. We’ll explain everything clearly and work with you to ensure you are comfortable with the whole process.
So, now we’ve hopefully cleared away some of the excuses it’s up to you! Contact us today to start your boudoir journey to beautiful images.
Remember “If you don’t look good, we don’t look good”
