Why Book A Glamour Photo Shoot?

Posted on Jun 7, 2013

WHY BOOK A PHOTO SHOOT?

I say why not? Photo sessions don’t need a reason. They’re fun. They’re empowering. They’re rewarding and very affirming. Many women book their sessions for particular reasons though. Some women don’t believe that they deserve an experience like this and need a little extra push as to why they do!

Here are my top reasons for booking a glamorous photo shoot:

Reason #1: TO KNOW YOU ARE WORTH IT

Every woman deserves to feel comfortable in her own skin. We are subjected to and inundated with images of aesthetic perfection every day in the media. We compare ourselves constantly to unattainable standards. And we let ourselves, even if for a millisecond, believe lies about our bodies. We were created as crowning jewels; we are beauty personified. Sometimes we don’t even know it until we allow ourselves to be placed in a spot of vulnerability. Beauty is the spot. Glamour photography allows you to truly rediscover what real beauty is—your inner and outer beauty, your shine, your glow, your authentic self.

Reason #2: TO GET IN TOUCH WITH YOUR INNER GODDESS

Let’s be real. A very large percentage of us probably do not get glammed up every day. Glamour (and boudoir) is a time to let your hair down (literally) and indulge in a little bit of pampering. Enjoy having your hair styled and make-up artfully done in advance of your photo shoot… a pampering opportunity to live up the glamour, glitz, and sparkle!  Because tomorrow, you’ll be back to your inner moral dilemma of “If I take time to put mascara on, will I have time to eat breakfast?”

Reason #3: TO CELEBRATE A MILESTONE

There is no better way to celebrate a milestone birthday or a weight loss goal than to rock what your momma gave you! You worked hard to get where you are, and it’s time to celebrate. Whether it was weight loss, a promotion at work, getting married, becoming a mom, becoming an empty nester, or maybe becoming a gorgeous grandma, life is one big celebration. We have to take a moment for ourselves and throw some confetti.

Reason #4: TO HAVE AN EXCUSE TO DO SOME RETAIL THERAPY

Going shopping for special outfits, accessories and maybe lingerie is just plain fun! Okay, so it may cause anxiety for some because there are so many choices and ideas. However, putting together an outfit that the public eye would never see is rather alluring and exciting. When else would you get to justify chunky, multi-strands of pearls and cream-colored heels?

Reason #5: TO GIVE AN AMAZING GIFT

I cannot think of a better gift to give to him than yourself. Show me one man who was not absolutely gaga over glamour and boudoir photos of his special lady! Men are visual creatures; they connect and internalize images. We may roll our eyes when we see a man recognize a beautiful woman, but it’s how they were wired. When we give images of ourselves, we say, “I respect and love you. I know this is one mode of communication that you appreciate.”

So – Are You Ready?

By now you should see the reasons why a glamour and/or a boudoir photo shoot is a great decision to make. Reconnect with your amazing self. Give an awesome gift. Feel like a queen for the day.  I have two sessions left in June… call me to book yours!
