Are you a thinker? Do you turn things over in your mind over and over till all the fun is gone? Try honing in on your feelings instead. Your body is an amazing reflection of what’s going on in your subconscious; beneath all your logic and all your reasoning is your gut. That’s where the answers lie. We all know this – we hesitate when necessary and we jump in when we truly want to. Except that sometimes we just get to thinking too much and change our minds which, sometimes, leads to regret. I’m not saying be impulsive, I’m saying give your whole body a chance to weigh in on your decision-making process.
My favorite example is how you feel when considering a boudoir shoot – your default thinking and thinking may lead you down many roads, but your gut will always get you in front of the camera. You know your gut and your heart wants you to do it – go for it. Your brain will catch up later.
You’re probably also thinking “What should I wear for my boudoir photo session?”
A lot of clients often put off doing a boudoir shoot because they don’t know what to wear, or they don’t have any lingerie or they are literally frozen at the idea of walking into a Victoria’s Secret. Good news – you don’t need to do any of that!
Of course, if you LOVE lingerie, then go to town! From Victoria’s Secret to Agent Provocateur, the options are endless.
However, if you are the type who is more comfortable cuddling in your knee socks and a warm blanket, then rock it out! Each session is personalized to your own personality – what one person thinks is sexy or intimate is not the same thing as what the next person thinks. So go with what resonates with you. It is not uncommon for someone to dig into the back of their closets and pull out stuff that made them feel great but that they haven’t worn in a while. Its ALL good.
