Ready for a powerful SCV boudoir photography tip? The best time to book a boudoir session is not when you’re skinny – it’s when you’re happy. Here’s why.
When we think of beauty, we’re conditioned to think of the shape of our bodies, the makeup on our faces and the clothes we purchase. As a photographer of women, however, Lindsay Schlick knows one thing for sure: Even physical beauty is about so much more than what you can see on the outside.
Physical beauty is found in the way laughter lights up your face, the way your posture changes when you feel confident, or the way lingerie hugs your form when you’re caught in the heat of the moment.
Physical beauty comes from the inside out.
Have you ever watched a friend fall madly in love? She might add on a few extra pounds as her and her newfound lover eat their way through the honeymoon period. She might deepen her laugh lines, as she finds more joy in the everyday than she ever thought possible. She might even pay less attention to her hair and makeup, as she trades Botox and lash extensions for a feeling of safety and acceptance.
Even still, when you look at her radiant smile and confident walk, you can clearly see she’s more beautiful than ever.
That’s the power of happiness and its effect on physical beauty.
And that’s what we want you to see when you book a boudoir shoot simply because you’re happy – and you deserve to show it off.
SCV Boudoir Photography Tips: Happiness Looks Good On Everyone
1. Book when you’re happy.
Deciding why and when to shoot boudoir is probably the hardest part. As women, most of us have considered what it would be like to see ourselves in those beautiful poses. But the next thought is usually: “I’ll do it when I …” fill in the blank.
Maybe you’ll give yourself permission when you lose 15 pounds. Or maybe you’ll never give yourself permission because you think you’re already “too old.” Whatever your caveat is, it stands in your mind as the reason why you shouldn’t do boudoir because you aren’t good enough right now.
And that’s simply not true! You are ready for boudoir just as you are.
Besides, the best reason to choose boudoir is simply because your happiness deserves to be captured. That’s what makes you beautiful.
2. Go for the smile.
When most women think of boudoir, they think of strappy lingerie and sultry pouts. In their minds, looking that sexy must be serious business. But in our experience, some of the best boudoir shots are the smiles, the laughter and the silliness.
That cute-sexy confidence you get when you make a funny joke. The truly beautiful way you laugh when you’re being silly. The joy of being in your own skin. All those things are incredibly sexy, especially to the partner who loves to see you happy.
In fact, when couples come to the Purchasing Session together to see the finished boudoir images, spouses naturally gravitate toward the smiley, happy boudoir shots. Why? There’s nothing more attractive than seeing the person you love feel happy.
3. Trust in the process.
Lastly, the best way to let your happiness shine through is to simply trust the process. Boudoir is an act of courage, but it is also an act of trust. You have to trust yourself enough to take the leap, and then you have to trust the photographer enough to show her your true self.
At SchlickArt, we help you do that throughout every step in the process. All you have to do is simply enjoy yourself – and we take care of the rest! We know how to elicit your true smile, your genuine laugh and your most authentic sexy smirk. That’s our job. You simply have to trust enough to let us show you just how beautiful you truly are – right now.
