I’ve been getting this question sometimes, or rather, people don’t always ask this question but they assume they know the answer already. People who do erotic or boudoir shoots must be sluts, or they are vain. Today I’m going to tell you why that’s not the case.
Ever since cameras exist, people have been taking sexy photos of themselves and each other. Sometimes for the viewing pleasure of others, yes, but often for themselves. As I’ve been a model myself, I’m going to tell you what I personally think are the reasons why YOU should book a sexy shoot.
You deserve to be pampered
When you know a shoot is coming, you go the extra mile to look good. Maybe you go to get your nails done, or you do them yourself. You take extra time in the shower that morning to perhaps shave (if that’s what you want to do of course) and wash and condition your hair. You might do your own makeup, book a MUA or let me do your makeup. But you take your time to make yourself feel extra pretty and this helps you feel more confident!
Step out of your comfort zone
Especially now during the pandemic, it’s easy to not care so much about your looks or sexuality. No nightclubbing where you can dress up and be a hoe for a night, no office working where you can show off those new heels to your colleagues. Doing a sexy shoot, whether its boudoir, fetish or something else, can really help you find yourself. If you often play it safe in life, doing something outside of your comfort zone can boost your confidence a LOT. “Wow, I really just did that, and it felt great!”.
Be proud of your beauty
Celebrate yourself! You are incredible, sexual and strong, and I want to do everything in my power to show my models just that. It’s often easy to get swept up with work and life, and of course with personal insecurities about our looks. Seeing yourself from another perspective, all glammed up, can show you how beautiful you really are. When you look in the mirror in the morning you might not always focus on the best parts of you, but as a photographer it’s my duty to do that for you!
These are the main reason why I believe letting someone take sexy photos of you can really empower and celebrate you. Whether you want to keep them private, share them with a partner or post them publicly, you took those photos for you! So no, doing a boudoir or fetish shoot doesn’t make you a slut, it makes you confident and free.
If I convinced you to do a sexy photoshoot, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me to discuss your options for a shoot. Everyone is welcome, whatever your age, size or shape might be. I want to help anyone willing to show them their inner god/goddess.
