There are so many women in the Seattle and Tacoma area booking boudoir shoots. Not just there but all over the world. Each woman has her own unique reason behind taking part in a boudoir photo shoot. You’ll have your own as well if you’ve looked into Seattle Tacoma boudoir photography.
Here’s a few reasons why you should book the shoot!
One of the best surprises for your fiancé on your wedding day is the gift of boudoir photography. Just think, you’re about to walk down the aisle but right before you do you have your maid of honor deliver an album of your favorite images just before they see you for the very first time on your wedding day. It’s such a wonderful surprise and you’ll have so much fun doing the shoot and knowing about the amazing gift you got them to celebrate the beginning of your love story together!
You don’t even have to go that far. As your fiancé is getting ready for the day if you two choose not to see each other before your ceremony. Then every 30 minutes or so you can text them a digital image from your boudoir photo shoot with a teaser of the album on your honeymoon!
The possibilities are endless and when you’re looking for the right Seattle Tacoma Boudoir photography, make sure that digital images are included in the package that you purchase. That way you can text them, you can print out more of them if you need to, and you can share with friends. You can keep your favorite as the lock screen on your phone to remind yourself every day how amazingly beautiful you are! And how brave you are for having done a Seattle Tacoma boudoir photography shoot.

Maybe you’re turning 40. Maybe you finally quit that dead end job and you found a new one that betters your life. Maybe you trained for a marathon and you’re so proud of your dedication and accomplishment. Whatever the case may be, you can always reward yourself with a boudoir photo shoot. It’s something special just for you and when you look back on these photos, you’ll remember exactly why you did them. And you’ll be so proud of yourself all over again.
I had the opportunity to do a boudoir shoot for a woman who was doing just that. She was about to turn 40 and the past year of her life had been absolutely horrible. So many terrible things had happened and she told herself that she didn’t want to look back on turning 40 and be reminded of all the negative. So she had followed my work for a while and decided that now was the time for her boudoir shoot. We did her shoot and it was amazing. We talked about her story the entire time and I was sure to portray the beautiful woman that she was in these images for her. So now as she looks back on those photos she will remember that turning 40 for her wasn’t a horrible experience. Horrible things happened leading up to it but she remembered that all of those things are things that happened. They didn’t make her who she is and she wasn’t going to be impacted by them anymore. Now when she looks back on turning 40, she thinks about the empowering, beautiful boudoir shoot she decided to do and the stronger she became because of it.
You know what one of my favorite things about a boudoir shoot is? Let’s set the scene. You’re nervous. You know what to expect because we’ve talked about all the details but at the same time you still kind of don’t know what to expect no matter how prepared you are. You’re worried that you won’t look good, your wrinkles will show, you’ll make a weird face or won’t know how to pose. Maybe you feel like your whole life is taking care of other people and when it comes to you, well maybe you feel like you don’t deserve it. You’ve told yourself so many times that you’re not pretty, your body has changed way too much, and you can’t seem to look “good” anymore. I’m here to tell you that all of those things are lies. But I could tell you that all day long. You have to let me show you.
One of my favorite things about being a Seattle Tacoma Boudoir Photographer is this very thing. When a woman wants to do a shoot as a surprise for her husband and then winds up loving the images even more than he does. And he REALLY loves them!
The cool thing about doing a boudoir photo shoot with me isn’t the fact that we talk about your story so I can depict exactly who you are right now through your images. It isn’t the fact that I professionally pose you from head to toe and you don’t have to worry about striking model poses. I’ll tell you exactly what to do. It isn’t the fact that you get a few hours out of the house celebrating who you are. All of those things are amazing don’t get me wrong. But what’s really really cool is that after your shoot is over you will go take a break somewhere for about an hour. Maybe grab a coffee nearby or catch up on emails. Then I’ll call you back and you will get to see all of the edited images that very same day. I always tell people, you’ll have the digital online gallery of images that you choose before you get home that evening.
So when a woman walks into my studio nervous and anxious for her shoot and then during her shoot she starts to feel like the goddess she is. But when she comes back and sees the images for the first time on the very same day and is in tears because she can’t believe that she really is as beautiful as the people who love her tell her she is. They weren’t just being nice. She really is gorgeous and she starts to see it right then and there as I’m showing her her slideshow. That right there is why I do what I do. I am obsessed with this transformation. And I’m not talking about the before and after hair and makeup transformation. I’m talking about the transformation that happens inside of her heart and soul as she sees herself in a new light for the first time.
Yes you heard me right. Boudoir photography can be done for maternity as well. You’re seven months pregnant and you don’t feel your best (unless you’re my mother, she said she felt the best she ever has her entire life with all three of her pregnancies. I cannot relate with both of mine but that’s for another blog post). Why not have your hair and makeup professionally done? Find some beautiful outfits that make you feel as pretty and glowing as everyone is telling you you are. Or just celebrate your true form and the life that is growing inside of you. The maternity boudoir shoot I did in the image I posted above is one of my most favorite shoots of all time. This was my favorite image from the shoot and it was Janelle’s favorite image as well. Every time I look at it I think of how she is looking down and holding her unborn child and she just looks stunning. She may or may not feel stunning in the moments leading up to this shoot. But while we were talking and laughing and taking pictures and chatting about her becoming a mother, she felt stunning. And that’s what it’s all about. And after you have your baby and your body changes yet again because it will and it always does and change is natural and a part of life. You’ll look back on these images and remember hey little buddy, this is where it all started between you and me.
Is a boudoir photo shoot something that you’ve been thinking about? If so then I’m here to tell you that you don’t need a reason to do it. The reasons I gave you above are why many women do it. You will have your own reason and your own story and I cannot wait to tell it for you.
