I'm certain there are a whole lot more reasons you need a boudoir or beauty session in your life, but lets start with baby steps...
1. You've Earned It.
Its really that simple. You work hard in life, in play - so reward yourself! I meet a lot of incredible women whose greatest struggle is learning to celebrate themselves. A boudoir session, or a gorgeous portrait session showing off your favourite features, or outfit, lingerie, smile - its a REWARD for all the hard work you put into your job, your family, your marriage, your craft or even dinner! So go ahead and TREAT YOURSELF with something that will make you feel incredible and inspire other women to do the same! Seriously...look at these gorgeous women below!
2. New Experiences Build Confidence.
I don't know about you, but every time I step out of my comfort zone to try something new, I feel incredible. I feel sexy, empowered and ready to take on the world, and the daily tasks that come my way! About two years ago now I finally had a water shoot, photographed by my very talented friend, Alec Watson. Two years later I'm still walking on air from that day! I remember seeing my images on the computer that same day...I cried and cried and cried some more, because I finally KNEW beyond a shadow of a doubt that I. Am. SEXY. I am beautiful. And I am capable of being all those things. Here are a few words to describe how I felt, and still feel to this day:
Accomplished - I can now say with confidence, "I did it." Overwhelmed with Gratitude - I worked hard and finally took time to treat myself and get out of my comfort zone! And thanks to Alec, I have stunning images from that moment in time! Joyful I don't think I've ever felt so filled with complete and utter joy. Confident I know there I am a supermodel in my own right and nothing feels quite as amazing! Whether I'm in my PJ's, jeans or a sexy pencil skirt - I am on FIRE.
There is such power in having that knowledge - and there is a confidence that will never go away!

3. Celebrate Milestones.
Its not often enough we as women celebrate anymore. Little things, big things - there needs to be more celebrating of milestones! Today you finally got that promotion at work, you got that drawer cleaned out in the kitchen or you were honest with someone when they hurt you, no matter the success, its time you celebrate the victory! If you've got a special birthday coming up, why not book a shoot? Honestly, you deserve to celebrate and be celebrated - so DO IT!
So...what do you think? Are you ready to treat yourself?
