There always seems to be an excuse to hold off on a boudoir session- you’ve got friends and family that you likely put first. You’ve got goals you wanna reach. You’re a busy bee.
Based on a recent survey in the Boudie Tribe, we asked “How often do you prioritize self care?” Sadly, many people don’t do anything for themselves. “What’s that?” they asked.
It’s time to turn that statistic around!
Perhaps you’ve heard of the term “body positivity” - especially since we use it a lot around these parts.
But maybe you’re not quite certain that you belong in that category. Don’t worry! We’re going to clear that up a bit for you! Body positivity is “unlearning the idea that only certain bodies are worth acceptance and praise.” It’s important to note that just because someone is body positive, doesn’t make them immune to societal beauty standards, nor that negative nag in their mind. In moments of self doubt, it’s all about catching yourself in the act and reminding yourself to treat yourself (and others) with kindness! Basically, teaching yourself to be mindful in situations where body image is involved.
So, how does an Empowerment Session
with Embrace help with that?
It’s simple, really. You set aside a day ALL about you (yes, an entire day!), you come in and get pampered, and then we guide you every step of the way through a photoshoot with the intention of smashing (with a metaphorical hammer) those deep-rooted insecurities you’ve got!
You’ve seen yourself in the mirror, you’ve seen yourself in selfies, you’ve seen yourself in pictures snapped by your friends/family, and maybe you’ve even seen yourself in professional family photographs.. but until you’ve seen yourself through the eyes of a boudoir photographer, you haven’t truly seen what you and your body are capable of.
Everyone on the Embrace team knows from personal experience, because we’ve all had our own boudoir sessions (it’s important that we keep ourselves in our clients’ shoes so we can relate!). Here’s what each of us have to say about our own experiences:
Ashlee: “Before, I only saw myself as plain. Sometimes I could feel pretty, but I never saw myself as "sexy" or "magazine-worthy." That is until I saw my own boudoir photos! I was yelling, "Holy shit, that's me!" I'm happy to report the confidence I gained from my boudoir sessions has expanded into my daily life! “
Angelina: “I’ve always been told I was pretty; sometimes even beautiful. But I’ve rarely been called sexy. So rarely that when my husband called me sexy- I’d eye-roll and laugh it off in disbelief. But when I saw my images I felt sexy and desirable for the first time. I gained a confidence that I carry with me everyday.“
Keelena: “I honestly couldn't believe that it was me in my own photos. I have never seen myself from this perspective. I was in awe. I saw myself as elegant, and sexy. I secretly even laughed at myself and thought, damn, my husband means it when he says I'm hot!”
