1. You have to be model material.
    Nope. What even is model material? Size 0? Size 22? You don't have to be anything but yourself to have boudoir photos done!
  2. Boudoir is not for pregnant women.
    Say what?! Pregnancy is gorgeous. On average, women are pregnant 2 times their whole life. You deserve beautiful photos revealing that baby belly! It won't be that way forever.
  3. You have to be gifting boudoir photos in order to need a boudoir shoot.
    False. Believe it or not, most of my clients are single ladies. There are quite a few who used it as a gift (wedding, anniversary, birthday), but most come in for the experience for themselves. Treat yoself! You don't need a reason other than "I want to."
  4. You should only get boudoir photos done once in a lifetime.
    My boudoir shoots are so fun, you'll want to do them year after year. You change as does your looks and mindset. There is no shame in having boudoir done as often as you want!
  5. I can't do boudoir. I'm not sexy.
    It's my job to pose you to bring out that inner sexy model in you. I give you direction every minute of our shoot. It's all about the hands, hair, and hips. Plus, not every photo will be sexy! Some are more flirty and most are simply gorgeous.
  6. Boudoir photos are not for moms.
    Moms are my favorite clients! They're usually the ones that need it most. It's nice to have a few hours out of one day where it's all about getting taken care of instead of taking care of someone else. You get to look back on these photos anytime to see the gorgeous sexy you that's always in there somewhere.
  7. You need to have lingerie for a boudoir shoot.
    Not quite. You don't have to wear any lingerie at all. A baggy sweater with boy shorts and thigh high socks is one of my fav looks to photograph. The white sheet comes in at a close second.
  8. I can't afford this.
    Wrong. Anything you want in life, you can have. It's all about working towards it. You shouldn't think "I can't." You should think, "How can I?" That goes for anything in life. You're worth it! Invest in yourself. Treat yourself.
