The first time someone hears about boudoir, their initial thought is “why a boudoir shoot?”  Every woman that comes into our Michigan boudoir studio has a reason. No matter anyone’s reasons, we believe boudoir is an act of showing yourself love and loving the skin you’re in.

Here are some of the top reasons we hear for doing a boudoir shoot.  

1. To Celebrate A Birthday Milestone

What better reason to do a boudoir shoot than celebrating yourself! Whether you’re turning 30, 40, or 50, a boudoir photoshoot is a perfect gift to give yourself. This is one of the top reasons we hear from ladies! Who wouldn’t want to give themselves a boost of self confidence and some new lingerie to match? 😊

2. it’s your significant other’s birthday

This is probably the #2 reason we hear from women who do a boudoir shoot! This is a definitely a two-for-one kind of gift for your special someone. You get to spend the day feeling and looking good. They’ll get a sexy surprise on their special day.

5. celebrate an accomplishment

Have you finally accomplished something you’ve been working towards for a long time? Maybe it’s a fitness goal or a new step in your career. Whatever you have accomplished, treat yourself to a boudoir session as a reward! Celebrating yourself as a woman is the best way to celebrate your achievements.

6. Celebrate Becoming A Mother

A maternity boudoir shoot is a perfect opportunity to do something for yourself before your new bundle of joy arrives. Your body goes through some amazing changes during pregnancy. Take this time to create some beautiful memories that you can cherish forever.

7. Celebrate a Divorce

No one goes into a marriage expecting a divorce. It can be tough to go through such a hard and serious decision. Over the years, I have shot with many who have booked a boudoir shoot after getting a divorce. A boudoir session is a perfect reminder to yourself that you are worth it and you deserve to feel great about yourself!

8. Take yourself out of your comfort

“OMG, I’m so nervous! I’ve never done anything like this before!” 

I hear this all the time. Most of the women who book a boudoir shoot with me are doing this for the first time. Maybe you want to try something new or you’re learning to love your body again. It may seem scary and nerve-wracking to do a boudoir photoshoot. But, honestly, the scariest part is just taking the first step and booking a consultation call! Once you get in the studio, your fears wash away!

9. see yourself through someone else’s eyes

As a photographer, I know all about capturing your best angles. I know how to catch the best lighting. I know how to pose you. I’ve been doing it for years! Sometimes taking a selfie just doesn’t capture all of the beauty you have! I always hear “I can’t believe this is really me!” and it really is you! There’s no excessive photoshopping at Trish Hadley Boudoir. I’m showing you what I see through my lens – someone beautiful!
