Are you searching for a gift for your wife/partner that strikes the perfect balance between empowering and pampering her? A boudoir session is just what you are looking for. It is a unique and personal experience for that special woman in your life. Boudoir shoots make for a unique gift that allows your lady to flaunt herself, feel sexy, and empowered. It is one of the best gift ideas for a woman that has everything.
Boudoir is about more than just taking sexy photos! The images become treasured keepsakes and preserve a moment in time for the two of you to look back on for years to come. It’s very similar to taking family photos to capture ever-changing faces and family dynamics or hanging on to mementos from trips and important occasions. Your wife or partner may want a boudoir session because she thinks it’s important to capture and celebrate herself as an individual.
Why Boudoir is the perfect gift
Here are a few reasons why she might want to memorialize the moment:
- Your relationship is changing (growing a family, doing long-distance temporarily, entering into the more “serious” stages of a relationship like getting engaged or married, etc).
- She wants to be able to look back in 50 years and admire how truly beautiful she’s always been (even when she didn’t feel like it).
- To create even more fond memories of a particularly lovely season of her life or your relationship.
- Spice things up in the relationship and she thinks this is a great way to start!
Regardless of the reason, preserving a memory is never a bad idea. You only get to live each moment once, so why not give her a permanent reminder of a few moments she felt absolutely divine in? I guarantee that she’ll always remember the kind and thoughtful gift you gave her.
To give her an excuse to do something nice for herself.
Boudoir photos–just like any other kind of photoshoot–are not a necessity. It can be hard to justify such an investment when you share finances and have to make important decisions about how to spend it wisely, and she may be too nervous to ask for it outright because of this. That’s why it makes a great gift: she may never justify booking it for herself!
A boudoir photoshoot can be a form of self-care: she gets her hair and makeup professionally done on-location by an expert female stylist, has an occasion to break out her fanciest special-occasion lingerie (or buy a few new options!), and gets to express and embrace her femininity in an environment that’s safe and encouraging. Make her feel like a supermodel for the ages in just one afternoon!
Lastly, consider this: how many nice photos does she have of just herself? She probably takes plenty of pictures of everyone around her with not much reciprocation, especially if you have children. Of course, she’s included in family and group photos, but when was the last time she was the main focus of a photo? Instead of learning how to be the perfect Instagram Husband (though you may need to acquire some skills anyway), you can leave it to me, as an experienced professional, to perfectly capture your partner’s essence, her timeless beauty, and her radiant spirit.
Because it’s a win-win situation!
This one is kind of a no-brainer. Your partner’s boudoir session gives her an afternoon as the center of attention, a renewed sense of confidence, and increased self-esteem…but gifting the woman in your life a boudoir session also benefits you.
Not only do you score brownie points for booking the session in the first place, but you also get to be with her when she’s feeling her best afterward! Not to mention the steamy high resolution photos you’ll receive a few weeks after the session.
If you’re not certain she’d be interested in a boudoir session, you can ask her! A gift doesn’t always have to be a surprise, and it’s best to get her opinion if you’re on the fence. Her response may astonish you, as even women who are typically very shy show interest in getting in front of a camera because it’s so private and different from the average photoshoot! At the very least, she’ll be delighted to know that you are thinking about her and how to make her happy.
