Boudoir photo shoots are getting more popular than ever before, and it’s really no surprise. In the times of selfies, sexting, and Instagram modeling, being scantily dressed has never been more glamorous or more appreciated.

The problem with boudoir photos is that most people think that they are something that only the super thin, youthful, and glitzy models of Hollywood should do. This is just not true anymore!

1) In 50 years time, that boudoir photo shoot will make you proud
No one stays young forever. In 30 years from now, you’ll be wrinkled. In 40 years from now, you’re gonna be a granny. Don’t you want to have proof that you were once beautiful? Don’t you want to look back and be able to say, “I was such a hottie?” A boudoir shoot can do it.

2) Body shaming is so last century. 
The thing about the human body is that it’s really beautiful at almost any size. Hearing all the negative talk people have about bodies is not doing anyone any favors, so why not give the thumbs down to the naysayers by doing something that shows you how proud you are to have what you’ve got? The sooner people get over the "perfect body" obsession, the better off we’ll be.

3) There’s something empowering about it. 
There’s a huge self-confidence boost that you get from actually embracing yourself enough to do a boudoir shoot. Once you actually experience how liberating a boudoir shoot can be, it’s hard to go back to feeling ashamed of your body. It’s a gutsy move, and you’ll be glad that you did it.

4) Boudoir photos aren’t exactly stigmatized anymore. The truth is that the shock value of boudoir photos is gone, for the most part. As long as they’re tastefully done, very few people will stigmatize them or slut-shame someone for having boudoir photos of them done. After all, most Millennials have scantily clad images of themselves floating around, anyway.

5) Because you know you’re curious about how you’d look
You’d be surprised at how photogenic you probably are, especially if you get a little coaching from a good photographer. If you’ve been wondering how you’d look in front of a real boudoir shoot without the use of a selfie stick, you might as well satisfy your desires.

6) You should celebrate your body. And what better way to celebrate it than to have a photo shoot where you flaunt what you’ve got. Your body is yours. It’s unique, and that means it’s something to treasure. Why not treasure it in a form that makes it possible for you to relish it forever?

7) The photos make great presents for the guy you’re seeing. Assuming that you trust him enough to send boudoir photos to him, you might as well go all out and get some high-quality photos to send to him. He’ll appreciate the fact that you took the effort all the more, trust us on that one. 

8) It’s a safe way to take a walk on the wild side. 
When you’re 80, do you want to look back at your life and say that you took no risks whatsoever? You know you want to have a cool story or two about how crazy you used to be as a kid. Otherwise, you’re going to be very upset when you’re too old to do much other than think about your younger years. If you can’t do too much crazy stuff right now, doing a boudoir shoot is a good way to get crazy without risking it all.

9) There’s nothing wrong with doing it. 

A common reason why people avoid boudoir shoots is that someone, somewhere along the way told them it’s wrong. Having a boudoir shoot isn’t hurting anyone. It’s not cheating on your husband. It’s not lying to others. It’s having fun. And that means that it’s not wrong to do, despite what society may say.

10) Professional boudoirs are also great for congratulating yourself on gym efforts. 
There’s something to be said about how a talented photographer can capture all the little ripples in a well-toned body. If you really want to give yourself a photo series that can give you the bragging rights that you deserve, doing a boudoir shoot works wonders for your self-esteem.

11) It actually can help you get over shyness.

Shy people have a lot to benefit from boudoir photography, primarily because it helps them overcome their shyness. If you’ve been trying to find a way to kick off that timidity, getting in front of a camera lens is a great cure. Because, somewhere deep down inside, you know you kinda want to do a boudoir shoot.

12) Because, somewhere deep down inside, you know you kinda want to do a boudoir shoot. 
Here’s the funny thing about life: you only get one. This means that you only get one lifetime to actually enjoy things you want to do. So, why let anyone else stop you? If you want to do a boudoir shoot, then do it, already!
