Glamorous, empowering, and sensual – boudoir photo shoots are an incredible way for women and men of all shapes, sizes, and backgrounds to embrace their unique beauty and to boost self-confidence. Yet, many people find themselves making excuses to delay making their booking or attending their booked session.
In this post, we will debunk 10 common reasons used to delay or skip boudoir shoots and explain why embracing this experience can be a transformative journey towards self-acceptance and self-love.
So, let’s dive in and banish those excuses once and for all!
1. “I’m Not In Perfect Shape, I Need to Lose Weight First”
Nobody is! And guess what? That’s perfectly okay. This excuse is probably the most common reason people use to postpone their boudoir photo shoot. Boudoir shoots are all about celebrating your body as it is, embracing your curves, scars, and imperfections. Remember, true beauty comes in all shapes and sizes.
Our photographer will guide you through poses that highlight your best features and create a stunning visual narrative that showcases your confidence and allure. Your boudoir session will serve as an incredible catalyst for self-acceptance and will help you see the beauty you possess, regardless of your size or weight. So embrace your body as it is right now, in all its imperfect perfection.
2. “It’s Too Expensive”
Investing in yourself is priceless. While boudoir shoots may seem like a luxury, consider the long-lasting impact on your self-esteem and self-worth. It’s not just about the beautiful photos; it’s about the experience and the empowering feeling you’ll carry with you.
We offer various packages, so you can find one that suits your budget. Remember, investing in yourself is always worth it.

5. “I’m Too Shy or Nervous”
Feeling shy, nervous or insecure about your body is completely normal and many people experience these emotions when considering booking their boudoir photo shoot experience. However, it’s important to remember that the boudoir photography we offer, is an amazing opportunity for personal growth and self-acceptance.
We understand your concerns and know how to create a comfortable and safe environment to explore your desires. We fully guide you throughout the process, making you feel at ease and empowering you to explore your sensuality with confidence. Boudoir photography allows you to shed your inhibitions and embrace your true self, fostering a sense of empowerment that extends far beyond the photo shoot.
6. “I’M TOO BUSY”
Life can get hectic, and finding time for yourself often takes a backseat to other responsibilities. However, prioritising self-care and self-expression is essential for overall well-being.
Our boudoir photo shoot sessions provide a unique opportunity to escape the chaos of everyday life and focus solely on yourself. It’s a chance to pamper yourself, feel glamorous, and celebrate your journey. Remember, investing time in yourself is never wasted; it’s an investment in your happiness and self-confidence that will yield long-lasting rewards.
7. “I Don’t Have the Right Outfits”
You don’t need a wardrobe full of lingerie to rock a boudoir shoot with us! In fact, you don’t even need lingerie at all! Boudoir photography is about capturing your essence, and that can be achieved through a variety of outfits and styles.
From cozy sweaters to your partner’s shirt, it’s all about finding what makes you feel comfortable and confident. Check out our non-lingerie gallery for some inspiration.
8. “I’m Single, I Have Nobody to Gift the Photos to”
While it’s true that boudoir photography can make a wonderful gift for a partner, it’s essential to remember that the primary focus is you. It’s a celebration of self-love and self-expression. Embrace your independence and channel your inner goddess. Your boudoir session will be an empowering experience that reminds you of your own strength, beauty, and sensuality.
9. “I’m afraid of being judged.”
Fear of judgment is a powerful deterrent, but remember that we always provide an incredibly supportive, open-minded safe space. We understand the vulnerability involved and always create an environment of trust and respect. We are solely committed to capturing your best self and ensuring your comfort throughout the entire process by providing a judgement-free zone where you can freely express yourself and rediscover your confidence.
