Why boudoir is an investment in yourself

Investing in yourself means you are putting time, money, and other resources into yourself to make your current life better and also your future. Instead of primarily just focusing on material things, you instead look for opportunities that will raise your self conscious and self-worth. This can make a huge impact on how you feel about yourself.

After years of photographing boudoir, working with thousands of women, and hearing feedback about how doing a boudoir session changed their perspective, changed their self-worth, making them feel worthy and empowered. How boudoir changed so many things for these women. I have learned that boudoir is an investment women want because it makes positive changes in them.

Many years ago when I first started taking boudoir portraits I assumed it was just a gift for their partner. Don’t get me wrong, many women still come to me to do a boudoir photoshoot for their significant other. However, something that I came to realize over time is that the session is not really just for someone else. It truly is for the woman at that very moment in time, they just do not realize it yet. 

If you would have asked me years ago when I first started this genre of photography if I thought it was going to be this popular and this life-changing I am pretty sure I would have said yes. I knew back then there was something magical about it, I just didn’t realize how much power it had for women but I knew it was something special men appreciated (and still do!). All in all, it is a win for couples to enjoy for a lifetime.

If you are wondering what boudoir costs, let me tell you what to expect from professional boudoir photographers with experience in posing all body types, experience in multiple types of lighting, and premium editing and retouching skills… You should expect to pay a minimum of $1K and up. My packages range from $1800 to $28K. Yes, that is truly an investment. I am one of the most experienced boudoir photographers in the country. My packages are all-inclusive, which means you choose a package that suits you and there is no sales meeting after. You have complete control to set your budget upfront.

ONE LAST THING TO NOTE: Choosing the right boudoir photographer for yourself takes a little bit of legwork. Be sure to look through their portfolio and social media carefully. Look for things like: variety in posing, variety in lighting, and editing you love. If a boudoir photographer is very low in price remember you get what you pay for. I cannot stress enough that not all photographers are equal. Over the years I’ve done shoots for women that went to another boudoir photographer first due to price and were so unhappy with what the other photographer gave them that they decided to do a reshoot with me. Don’t end up paying twice! Do your research and invest in a photographer that you 100% know will deliver!
