Are you scrolling through Instagram and seeing images of other women doing boudoir sessions and thinking to yourself, “I wish I could do that”? Okay, but why can’t you? What is holding you back from finally booking the session? I bet I can change your mind by the time you’re done reading this.

It’s more than just some booty pics 

Traditionally it is thought that boudoir photos are for the male gaze. That you would hire a photographer to take these kinds of images for someone else, and never for yourself. But if you could know how far from the truth that is. 

Boudoir is for women. For the celebration and empowerment of the person you are. To reflect on the body that has carried you through life this far. Slipping into something that makes you feel confident. The point is this is for you, for you to see yourself in a way that you probably haven’t seen in a long time. That alone is exactly why I got into boudoir photography. 

For you to see yourself the way the world sees you. Amazing, powerful, and beautiful. Not convinced yet? Keep reading.

“Now isn’t the right time for a boudoir session”

Catch yourself saying the above? Let’s say you’re wanting to do a session but your mind is just going through all the objections:

“I want to do a session, but I have to wait til I lose some weight”

“I could never spend that much on myself right now”

“My boyfriend doesn’t want me to”

Respectfully, ditch all those thoughts, and let’s be selfish. No, better yet let me ask you, when is the last time you were selfish? That you did something just because you wanted to, and it was fully for you? 

You work hard and you deserve to be celebrated through an empowering experience like a boudoir session. Time to say yes to you. 

Let me walk you through it

Imagine this, you finally say yes to yourself and now you’re just patiently waiting til your session date. Then you start getting excited putting together your outfits, you book a nail appointment, and envision how amazing your photos are going to be.

You’re driving to the studio, you put your car in park and you’re ready to dive in! From the second you walk into the studio, you forget that you were ever nervous in the first place. Immediately you are welcomed in with open arms. We spend our time together laughing, telling stories, and it suddenly no longer feels like you’re taking photos in lingerie in front of a stranger. Because girl, we’re no longer strangers after this.

Now, you’re getting to see your images for the first time and you’re left speechless. It’s hard to see ourselves the way others do, but when you get a glimpse it’s amazing. You are looking at yourself with admiration and that’s exactly what I want you to feel. 

Proud of this body you host and proud of yourself for taking the leap to experience this kind of empowerment. 

Take it from someone who said “yes”

“I found Ash when I was first starting to find myself again, and wanted to learn how to love me, for who I am and love my body, for what it was. After my first shoot, I cried real tears… I felt joy, happiness, strength, and peace. She captured parts of me that reflected the self-growth I have experienced, and she hyped me up the whole session. Ash was encouraging, positive, and so knowledgeable with her work. She made me feel so good in my own skin.. yes, her work is stunning, but the very best part is how she makes a woman feel during the session. I can’t thank her enough for being a part of my journey in self love.”
