Why You Don’t Need To Lose Weight Before Your Boudoir Shoot

Don’t deny yourself the opportunity to feel beautiful and empowered just because you think you’re not perfect.

We hear it all the time. Like, ALL the time.

“I’m going to book once I lose that stubborn 15lbs!”

“Once I reach my goal weight, then I will do a boudoir session.”

“If I could just get the baby weight off, then I will be in for a shoot!”

Girl, we get it. We completely get it!

You want to feel beautiful and empowered at your boudoir shoot. It’s an investment of time and money and you want to make sure that you will look your best and be happy with the results.

But, here is the thing – you are already beautiful and perfect the way you are! So what if you don’t lose weight? Will you never do the things you wish you could until your body is “perfect?” Speaking from experience, every single person on the Naked Peach team has passed up on so many opportunities in life because we didn’t feel like we were good enough. We are done missing out on life’s opportunities because we’re not “perfect enough!”

Here are the reasons why you should schedule your boudoir shoot – regardless of whether you have lost weight or not:

1. It Will Boost Your Confidence

Every single person we have done a boudoir session with has told us how much this helped to boost their confidence! Regardless of your size, there is something so empowering about letting yourself be both seductive and vulnerable in front of a camera. We like to view each boudoir session as a form of self-care. Yes, you are gonna get some amazing pictures of yourself, but you will also get to have a fun session where you will dive into your own personal power and command all of the attention.

2. You Don’t Have To Get Naked

Oftentimes women who want to lose weight before their shoot are trying to do so because they don’t feel comfortable naked or that they do not feel sexy because of their size. However, the beauty of your boudoir shoot is that it is YOUR boudoir shoot. You do not have to get naked if you do not want to! We have amazing lingerie that fits many sizes and in a variety that can show more or less skin. We’ve even had clients who’ve worn things like overalls or robes over every lingerie look to feel more comfortable during their session. There are also so many poses and so many ways to get creative with your looks – we can find the right combination to make you feel empowered during your session, rather than exposed.

A boudoir shoot is not about the lack of clothing you are wearing, or how “perfect” your body is. A boudoir session is about finding and showing off your power through the medium of photography. Whenever we hear someone say that they can’t do a boudoir shoot because they are “too big,” we can’t help but think that that is the exact reason why you SHOULD do a boudoir shoot. Boudoir shoots have helped so many of our clients come out of their comfort zone and come into their self-confidence! Oftentimes, once they see their final photos, our clients realize that they never needed to lose weight in the first place, because they can finally see that they are beautiful exactly as they are.

A boudoir session is a celebration of YOU and you are perfect just as you are! Don’t wait for something to change to start celebrating yourself. Instead, go ahead and book the damn session!
