Did you know my boudoir photography page is my TOP looked at page on my website? But I book far more newborn, family, maternity and headshots. Here is whey the I need to argument is crap. When I ask people about boudoir photography, many tell me that they would love to but they just need to…
- lose 10 pounds
- tone up
- get a tan
- get the right clothes
- walk the dog
- buy a new dishwasher
- fold the socks
- pick their nose
OK so obviously these are not all real responses, but they are all crap. Yes, I’m saying it. The ‘I need to’ argument is crap.
First off – you are perfect just the way you are.
Second – I promise you if you lose those 10 pounds or fold those socks there will just be something else around the corner.
Because let’s get real – this is all about vulnerability and we don’t like saying that we are vulnerable. Because that’s…. vulnerable.
I’m not here to convince you to book me but I am here to say it’s OK to be vulnerable and it’s also OK to jump in head first and take the plunge into something that’s a little scary but could be a lot fun and empowering.
And do you know what – if you do lose those 10 pounds or buy that dishwasher you can always do another shoot because after the first one is so fun you might just want to book a second.
I’ve done a shit load of hard things in my life that I knew would be worth it. I don’t regret taking those leaps for a minute. To grow you have to get out of that comfort zone. You don’t grow by sitting on the couch watching Netflix all day. Even if it’s not boudoir photography, take a chance and do that thing that you’ve always wanted to do. The odds you’ll regret doing the thing is very little.
K enough said. Contact me if you want details ladies!
