I’m heading into another busy week of back-to-back shoots but I wanted to make sure to reach out to you to take away the “myth” behind the voice at the back of your head, “but what kind of women go to a boudoir studio?!”
The short answer is: A woman like you. Because you are reading this for a reason. As a female boudoir photographer myself, you will find the love and support you need to embrace yourself at your most beautiful!
Women pour their hearts out to me when they call me to talk about why they want to do this shoot, this is one of the many reasons of being a female boudoir photographer in Toronto. Let me share some of those stories with you.
1. THE NERVOUS WRECK
You are judging yourself before even giving yourself a chance. You feel like you want this boudoir photoshoot SO BAD but what if someone sees your photos? What if they judge you for being vain (i.e. BEAUTIFUL)? For being indulgent (i.e. TAKING CARE OF YOURSELF)? You are so nervous if you “still got it” and if you will be able to keep it together come the day of the shoot.
This is 90% of all women who walk into my studio. TRUST ME, the care with which I craft every shoot, their nervousness goes away so fast that once they book a photoshoot in my all female boudoir photography studio, their confidence REALLY spikes up. To the point that almost all of the “Nervous Wrecks” end up requesting a classy topless shot 10 minutes into the session! NO KIDDING!
2. THE SELFLESS ONE
You keep giving, and giving, and giving: To your husband, to your kids, to your parents, to your friends, to your work. Ever wondered what it’s like to take a break and instead of giving the best of you to others all the time, replenish yourself with taking a day that’s just for yourself? Tasteful and classy glamour portraits and boudoir photography will remind you that you are your first priority and responsibility. In the airplanes, they say it for a reason that you should put on your oxygen mask before helping others — because that is the only way you can help others. So give yourself a treat and do this Toronto boudoir photography session just like so many other women like you who I meet everyday.
3. THE ONE GIFTING HER SEXY
The Luxury boudoir album, printed at the museum quality lab in Italy is the absolute favourite of most women do a shoot with me. From the perspective of a female boudoir photographer in in Toronto, I know that my studio’s Italian-made Boudoir Photography Professional Albums are the absolutely perfect gift for your partner, be it Christmas, Valentine’s, your birthday, their birthday, you name it!
4. THE ONE STUCK IN A RUT
Yep, you’re bored. Same old routine, same old you, from home to hustle, every day seems like the one before. No time to think about a change of haircut, or risking a new makeup routine, or even thinking outside the work wardrobe capsule, be it the nurse’s slacks or the pant-suit. Sex life also seems to have hit a plateau — These women come to me, your Toronto GTA Boudoir Photographer expert, to make them come alive once again. The supermodel experience of you being the centre of attention for an entire day and you playing dress-up every which way. For these women, this is one the best days they’ve had in a long time, in their own words.
5. THE HEARTBROKEN ONE
From stories of being in an unhappy or abusive relationship to amicable parting or cheating spouses, my all-female Toronto boudoir photography studio has seen it all. The good news is that you now have the “excuse” that you needed to put your big girl pants on, wipe away your tears, and embrace the stronger you that is on her way to rising out of the ashes just like a Dumbledore’s Phoenix! 😉 I show women like you the mirror of self-love and confidence everyday. You’ve got this!
6. THE NEWLY IN LOVE
If you ask the women what “newly” in love means, they will tell you about the guy they met 6 months ago or the guy they have been married to for 28 years but found their heart skipping a beat again. This boudoir photoshoot has it all: I will capture the twinkle in your eyes, the glow on your face, the best of his white shirts framing your body.
7. THE WARRIOR
You overcame a serious health issue or you just paid off your house AND put your kids through college: Whatever defines strength for you, my studio has seen it all. The women who walk into my boudoir photography studio have so many stories of strength and courage that whenever they do allow me to share their struggle, I can see other women identify with it find inspiration in it. I’ll be your trusted confidante female boudoir photographer, and I encourage you to tell your story and celebrate your triumphs. You can read more about these stories on the blog here.
8. THE ONE WHO HAS NEVER BOUGHT LACEY LINGERIE BEFORE
The last time these women thought about pretty and not just practical underwear was their wedding 25 years ago. And that was also the only time they bought something half-decent. Because who’s gonna see your splurge? When these women book their shoot at my all-female Toronto boudoir photography studio, they LOVE the helpful e-books I send them and find it so empowering to walk into a lingerie store to buy the most delicate and romantic thing they can find and for no other reason but to feel gorgeous inside out. The shoot becomes their excuse to have this experience and not feel guilty or ashamed about owning “nice things” in life. Congratulations, girls!
9. THE NEW GRANDMA
From those who got married at 19 30 years ago to the 62 year old grandma of six, I have photographed it all. Seriously! Feeling fabulous has no age or weight limit and the trust of these wise women in my professional photography at the boudoir studio makes MY day a fabulous one!
10. THE SEXTING DIVA
Long distance across the ocean or 20 minutes drive away from home at their work place, OR a new Tinder prospect, at my Toronto boudoir photography studio, women experience a new side of their sexy everyday. Taking “shame” away from it all, I strongly believe that a woman’s body is to be celebrated so enjoy these beautiful photos to boost your own self-esteem and to remind your special someone how lucky they are 😉
BUT WAIT: THERE’S MORE!
11. THE HUSTLING SINGLE MAMA
I salute you, ladies — because your stories and your effort is HARD WORK. And it’s always a pleasure to be your professional boudoir photographer.
12. THE ONE WITH SELF-DOUBT
Am I good enough? Am I thin enough? Am I young enough? Am I sexy enough? Is feeling sexy really a “need?” Oh, god, woman! Stop! I get teary when women talk like that about themselves — that’s why, at my Toronto boudoir photography studio, no negative self-talk is allowed. And trust me, all the women who walk in with these thoughts leave the studio skipping with happiness and confidence once they see how beautiful they look!
13. THE ONE WITH BURSTING SELF-CONFIDENCE
These women have got it all. They’re the definition of Beyoncé’s Independent Woman. And they come to do this glamour makeover boudoir photoshoot to document the amazing bliss they’re experiencing in their lives and to keep feeling fabulous forever!
