Seriously, why do we as women, especially mothers, always feel like we have to be doing something for someone else?! Why can’t we just do something for ourselves and enjoy it? And guess what, it makes us better and happier women and mothers. Many women do boudoir for their significant other, as a gift. And don’t get me wrong, it’s a great gift and a hot favorite. We have never had a partner dislike the gift. In fact, most partners are so crazy about it, they want all the photos or they don’t know what to say…But why do we feel like we can only do boudoir for someone else? Or as a gift?
WHY CAN’T WE DO SOMETHING NICE FOR OURSELVES WITHOUT FEELING GUILTY?!Women have been trained for centuries to be giving, to be selfless, and compassionate. So we are trained to feel guilty. And we are also trained to feel guilty for wanting to feel beautiful, sensual, and validated. Say that again with me, WE HAVE BEEN TRAINED TO FEEL GUILTY FOR WANTING TO FEEL BEAUTIFUL And that’s absolute bs!
EVERY SINGLE WOMAN HAS THE RIGHT TO WANT TO FEEL BEAUTIFUL AND TO FEEL BEAUTIFUL. So we feel guilty making the investment in a boudoir session. We think, oh but it’s trivial. Oh but no one else can see it. But so what? Isn’t it nice to pamper yourself, to have permission to feel beautiful, to see your own beauty, and to have an album no one else sees? Remember, that splurge your partner makes, on a power tool, on an electronic, a tv… costs as much and if not more than your boudoir photos. AND IT IS NOT AS LIFE-CHANGING, IS IT? That’s right, boudoir changes the way you see yourself and it’s empowering. It’s that one step closer to acknowledging yourself, letting yourself be you, and owning your body, beauty, and power as women. So do your daughters a favor. Empower yourselves to do something for yourself and pamper yourself. The many generations of women after us will thank us for it.
