There are a multitude of reasons why a woman would come in for a boudoir session. Some come because they want to feel good about their feminine beauty, some come in because they want something to boost their confidence, and others come for a revenge session.
A revenge session is a shoot that is booked by a woman who has recently broken up with a man who was either abusive, a jerk, or the relationship was going no where, or all 3. She's embracing her self worth and commitment to learning how to love herself again despite how hard the man she was with *tried to bring her down*. Sometimes, it’s a way for a woman to feel as though she has finally taken back her freedom from a man who didn't want her to do a boudoir shoot in the first place. It's something he wouldn't "let" her do, and now that he’s gone she is free to do what she has been wanting to do and take back her personal power.
"Women are already strong, it's about changing the way the world perceives that strength."
Boudoir is an investment. You're not paying for pictures... you're paying for what you get from your boudoir session besides the photos. If you find the right photographer, who will *respect your wishes as to what is done with the photos, and you've agreed upon what will be done with them*there should not be any issues. If you feel confident and positive with yourself after your shoot and your man makes you feel guilty, think to yourself, why? *9 times out of 10* it's his own insecurities. It's not your fault. These photos are for you. Even when it comes to doing a boudoir session as a gift, these images are yours and you deserve to have them, no matter what anyone else says.
This experience will be a beautiful reminder of the strength and courage each of us has inside.
