Busting Excuses

When we get nervous, we make excuses. We make excuses not to love ourselves or take care of ourselves. Sometimes life is just busy, we are too crazy at work, or we always have to drive someone SOMEWHERE. Sometimes, it’s more important to spend time with our spouse. We also use excuses like “I wanna lose 15lbs first!” and “I just don’t have the money right now!”. I wanted to write this to show you all that no matter the excuse, you CAN do it! Let me show you that no matter the excuses, you are worthy of self-love!

“I don’t have enough time for myself.”

It’s also important to remember that if you aren’t taking care of yourself mentally, you’re not going to be able to handle taking care of everyone else, which makes sense but is actually much harder said than done! Sometimes I am the WROST at make sure I am giving medley mental health breaks and that’s why I think its so important to share whites with you all. I make the same excuses as above, and sometimes I need someone to look me in the face and say, “SLOW DOWN,” give yourself a break, and breathe for a minute”!

You can beat and love yourself at a boudoir shoot for a few hours. Think of all the energy you’ll save daily if you stop comparing yourself to others or worrying about what other people will think of your appearance. You get to see where your beauty comes from, which lifts such a substantial mental weight.

You need to take time for yourself. Why not spend it having an amazing time getting glammed up for once?

“I’m not where I want to be, weight. I don’t fit the media’s idea of a good enough size.”

Did you know that the body type portrayed in advertising as the ideal I possessed nattily by only 5% of American females? ONLY FICE PERCENT.

I will say this repeatedly (and sorry, not sorry, you’ve heard me say it before), but WHY do you have to be a specific size to love yourself? WHY do you have to fit a stranger’s messed-up idea of a perfect body to LOVE your own body? WHY are you comparing your size to everyone else when no two women are the same?

I think it’s fantastic to have goals and want to be healthy, but does that mean you have to hate your body to do those things? NOT! You should love yourself every step of the way. Be proud of where you are so that you can be proud of where you’re going. Have a boudoir shoot to celebrate where you are now, and then have one when you lose the 15lbs to celebrate how far you’ve come!

“I never feel sexy or sensual anymore, so a boudoir shoot must not be for me.”

WRONG.

This excuse is actually the EXACT reason you SHOULD do a boudoir shoot.

Often, we lose touch with our femininity or sexuality when life gets crazy because of health, kids, or work. It happens a lot, and it is normal and okay! A great way to find this side of ourselves again is to have a boudoir shoot sone to put the spark back in us. I can show you that you have that inside if you are somewhere, and it might even ignite a spark between you and your spouse!

Another thing to remember is that you don’t HAVE to wear super-sexing clothing or lingerie. If you feel like this doesn’t show your personality, there are so many other outfit ideas. If you need ideas, I will gladly talk to you about them, or you can check out our blog on finding outfits!

“A boudoir shoot is an investment and I don’t have all the money right now”.

Yes, a boudoir shoot IS an investment. It is also an investment in yourself. You are investing in your well-being and confidence as well! We do offer payment plans! There is a booking retainer to book your shoot, and after that, we can set up your payment plan for the remaining amount so that it might be wiser to book a shoot! If you have questions about our payment plans, shoot us an email while setting up your shoot!
