Anita: From Scrubs to Supermodel! – Ep 11, Bombshell Tells All Podcast + Magazine

Hello Bombshell, good news today! The "Bombshell Tells All" podcast + magazine is back for the third season! We are kicking off the new season with the gorgeous Anita! If you are new to this site, you might not know that extraordinary photographer Daysy created a podcast after hearing so many heartfelt and honest stories from women who came to the studio to take the giant leap out of their comfort zones. All of our bombshells were looking to see themselves as the beautiful, confident, and strong women they are. The women who came to the studio not knowing what the experience would feel like but wanted to do it anyway. And finally, the women whose lives changed forever because they were courageous enough to take this step. Anita's Story Season 3 of our podcast, Bombshell Tells All, is starting off hot with our gorgeous bombshell Anita! Anita hails from Florida and works as a surgical technician. This kind and funny 40-year old might come across as an extroverted social butterfly, but Anita actually thinks of herself as a homebody who loves spending time with her furbabies, do-it-yourself projects, and the occasional glass of wine. So, what was so attractive [...]

When Is It Okay to Lie? | Boudoir by Daysy

Hello, beautiful! When is it okay to lie, in your opinion? Well, not on your taxes, that's for sure. And it's never a good idea to lie under oath. But what about little white lies? Are they okay? What if the lie is for a good cause? For example, what if you are trying to keep a big secret from a very special someone? Surprise, Surprise While I do not encourage lying--especially lying to your significant other--sometimes, there are good reasons to do so. Let's say, for example, that you're planning a boudoir photoshoot. And let’s say that you want to give the boudoir album to someone special in your life. And let’s say that you want to keep this boudoir photoshoot and album a surprise from that special someone. See where I am going with this? You might have to come up with a little white lie about where you’re going and what you’re doing. And why you’re coming home with your hair and makeup done. Am I right? Is there really anything wrong with that? No! So, if you are unaccustomed to telling the occasional little white lie, here are some tiny fibs that you can use: If [...]

Do You Need a Social Media Detox? | Boudoir by Daysy

Hello, Lovely! Like it or not, social media has become a huge part of our daily lives. Even if you personally never log on to Facebook or watch TikTok videos, our society and the people around us are all affected by social media. This phenomenon can be both a blessing and a curse. On the one hand, social media allows us to stay connected with loved ones, learn new things, and expand our horizons. In fact, we at the studio use social media sites like Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube to spread body positivity messages. On the other hand, social media can cause us to doubt ourselves, play small and hide our talents, and compare ourselves unnecessarily to others. There are thousands of social media sites devoted to convincing us that we are not pretty enough, smart enough, or good enough. On a daily basis, it sometimes feels like we are being bombarded by "reminders" that we are somehow less than. Is it Time for a Social Media Detox? Let's answer the following questions to determine if  social media might be making you feel bad about yourself, particularly about your body: Does social media help you to feel MORE or LESS [...]

Back to School, Back to Self-Care? | Boudoir by Daysy

Hello, Bombshell! Another summer is almost in the rear-view mirror. It's time for the kids to head back to school. WHEW. Does it seem like the last few months have been a whirlwind of company picnics, summer vacation trips, pool parties, summer camps, and the kids being the center of pretty much everything? Did you spend your summer planning fun and exciting adventures for your children? What about a fun and exciting adventure for YOU? When was the last time you planned something like that? As wives, mothers, caregivers, and career professionals, we often spend a lot of time taking care of other people. This is not a thankless task at all. However, sometimes, we can use a little tender loving care for ourselves. And one of the best ways to do this? With a boudoir photoshoot, of course! Self-Care is About More Than Bubble Baths When we talk about practicing self-care, we often think of ways to feel pampered, like getting a mani/pedi or relaxing in an inviting bubble bath. Sometimes self-care can be asking for help with household chores. These are all good things, but they aren't really enough. Practicing genuine and actual self-care means we get to [...]

Sweater Season at the Studio | Boudoir by Daysy

Hello, goddess! Another summer is winding down--where does the time go?? Soon autumn will be here, with falling leaves, warm apple cider, pumpkin spice everything... and sweaters! Now, I know what you're thinking. Sweaters for a boudoir photoshoot? Really? Can something so soft and comfy really make me look sexy? Girl. Yes! Don't believe me? Take a peek. Sweaters are actually a wonderful thing to bring to the studio for your boudoir photoshoot. First, they are so comfortable and we feel so good wearing them. If you're a little nervous about being photographed in your lingerie, adding a sweater can make you feel less anxious. Another advantage to adding a sweater is the variety of ways you can wear them. Sweaters that show a little extra skin are incredibly alluring! Think off the shoulder, plunging necklines, or backless options. Sweaters can also work great as a way to show off other accessories, like jewelry or maybe a killer pair of boots! What are the Best Sweaters for Boudoir? Just about any sweater can work for boudoir! They can be glamorous and sophisticated or flirty and romantic. Generally, sweaters that can be pulled off one shoulder and do not have tight [...]

We Get Love Letters! | Boudoir by Daysy

Hello, Beautiful! We're getting ready for a late summer rainstorm here. It's the perfect weather to curl up with a good book... or a stack of love letters from our awesome boudoir bombshells! "I Would Give More Than Five Stars if I Could!" Bombshell Teresa was positive she was not going to like her boudoir photoshoot, but she decided to go through with it, and she is so happy she did! Read on... Let me tell you about my boudoir photoshoot experience.  I would give it more than 5 stars if I could! The experience was more than a photoshoot for me, it was a chance to celebrate me and my body in a way that I never have before. I’m so glad that I went for it, even though I had some fears at first. First off, I am not someone who feels comfortable in my own skin.  I don’t even change my clothes in front of my partner, if you can believe that. I am the kind of person that typically hides my body. I’ve always been a curvy woman and I try to love my curves, but I’m not always successful at that.  I’m also 45 years [...]

I Can Read Your Mind… | Boudoir + Glamour by Daysy

Hello, Queen! I think I can read your mind. I'm sorry if that sounds a little creepy, but I think I can. Tell me if I'm on the right track--have you been thinking about any of these things recently? I've been thinking about doing a boudoir photoshoot... It sounds kind of fun... But Maybe I should get in better shape first? Do women like me even have boudoir photoshoots? What if my sexy photos get posted online? What if I don't like my photos? What if I can't pose the right way? What if my outfits are all wrong?  Is this just too far outside my little comfort zone? How did I do? Have you been thinking any of those things? Have I read your mind? It's Not Magic... Or is it? Let me tell you something, my lovely. That part is not magic. The reason that I know exactly what you're thinking is that every woman who steps in front of my camera tells me these same things.  They say that they were nervous before they booked. That they had a lot of questions about exactly what goes on at a boudoir photoshoot. They say that they weren't sure [...]

What a Boudoir Photoshoot Isn’t | Boudoir by Daysy

Hello, Bombshell! We've talked a lot about what a boudoir photoshoot is -- a truly amazingly empowering experience designed to show you how truly gorgeous you are inside and out. Today, however, I'm going to talk about what a boudoir photoshoot isn't. Boudoir is NOT About Body Shaming Have you ever heard about the diet motivation "tip" of posting an unflattering picture of yourself as a way to stay motivated to lose weight? No way do we promote body shaming for any reason! In fact, a boudoir photoshoot is meant to be exactly the opposite. It's meant to be a celebration of the gorgeous woman you are, right this minute. Please do not plan a boudoir photoshoot as a punishment for not being flawless or as a negative motivator to lose weight. There is no room for self-hatred in the boudoir studio. Boudoir is NOT Pornography Pornography is defined as sexually explicit videos, photographs, or writings that are produced solely for sexual arousal. Boudoir photography, on the other hand, celebrates a woman's authentic self; her strength, beauty, and spirit are all captured and celebrated. Boudoir photography celebrates every aspect of a woman, from her beautiful body to her shining soul. [...]
