When Is The Right Time to Have a Boudoir Photoshoot?

I hate mirrors.

I tell my clients this every single day.

They are bad for you because they do not reflect reality but rather gives free rein to negative self-talk.

Mirrors are a useful tool to double-check check things are in place correctly, but should not be used to evaluate yourself .

When is the best time to have a boudoir photoshoot?

You might be surprised by my answer but it is when you are truly ready for it.

What does “that”truly ready” mean…”truly ready”?

It means you are ready to take a leap of faith in yourself.

To be able to really get the most from your boudoir photoshoot, you need to believe in yourself.


Being ready has nothing to do with your body. It is all about mindset.

This year I’m doing all the things outside of my comfort zone. Since covid, I’ve lost a lot of body confidence, but I like the idea of facing this issue. Maybe doing something like this could potentially help me get back on track to living my body again.

If you are willing to face the nerves then you are ready for a boudoir photoshoot. And as I said to a potential client that was super scared she would end up looking like Jamie Lee Curtis in True Lies recently, by understanding lighting, contrast ratios, and how to pose any type of body, I can make you look and feel a million bucks! I do this by working with you to emote what you already have inside you.

Whether you are big or small, you will look and feel very amazing if and when you are ready to step outside of your own self-imposed comfort zone.

So the right time for a boudoir photoshoot is not when you have been able to “shed an extra 2kg” or when you “look less tired” but when you are ready to face your greatest foe—your own negative self-talk.

And boudoir photography is the best way to do this.
