Are You OK?
You may be asked that question if you choose a Boudoir Session for yourself and no one else
If you don’t have a partner, or if you do, and you don’t necessarily feel the need to gift them the images, you may be questioned on why do a boudoir session in the first place. You may be thought of as vain or even selfish. Who is going to see them? What are you going to do with the pictures if they are only for you to see?
First, I want you to know that a boudoir session is an experience that’s for you and only you. Giving yourself a few hours of uninterrupted time to dive deep, to get vulnerable, to have fun, to get into yourself, to step out of your comfort zone, to create, to play, to see yourself through someone else’s eyes, is the greatest act of self love. SELF love. Doing it for the acceptance of someone else may let you down. Your reason for this is just that, YOUR reason, and they may not understand. And you shouldn’t have to explain.
Some woman gift their images to their partners and that is totally awesome and fine and great! But I can assure you, that half way through their experience, before they even see their final images, they realize that it isn’t just about the photos. It’s the experience that is hers and hers alone.
So let’s get back to the question. Are you OK? heck ya you are! You’re more than OK. You know why? Because you know you are worthy of giving yourself a boudoir experience. In fact, no one is more worthy than you. You know you can do what the fuck you want, for yourself. You’re not waiting on someone’s permission. You’re not expecting someone else to understand or even love the images that we create together. You are so OK, that is doesn’t faze you what so ever, when you are questioned. You know that doing things for you and only you is NOT selfish. It’s necessary.
So if an act of self love is selfish, then let’s all be selfish! And let’s all be OK!
