Boudoir Bombshell Book Club! | Boudoir + Glamour by Daysy

Hi lovely! Welcome to the Boudoir Bombshell Book Club! A good book is truly a treasure, whether you are curled up on a Sunday afternoon with a book and a mug of coffee, or reading on your tablet while riding the subway to work. Many of us like to make New Year's resolutions to read more, yes? Speaking of resolutions, another popular one this time of year is to take better care of ourselves. Maybe you've gotten yourself a gym membership to help you meet this goal, but what you really need is... a library card! There are some amazing books out there that will help you learn to love and accept yourself regardless of where you are in your life. And if you're here, thinking about booking a boudoir photoshoot to celebrate the beautiful human woman you are, discovering positive and life-affirming stories is like making a close female friend. Finally, that little negative voice in the back of our minds is replaced with loving and kind words. What an amazing relief. If there's no time in your day for sitting down with a book (for example, when you're driving), consider audiobooks. Books for Boudoir Bombshells You are Not [...]

That Last Holiday Gift | Boudoir + Glamour by Daysy

Hello, beautiful! For many people around the world, the end of the year brings celebrations and gift-giving galore. Whether you are celebrating Christmas, Hannukah, Kwanzaa, Yule, or Feast Day of Our Lady Guadalupe, chances are this is a very hectic time of year for you. Who is on Your Gift List? One of the activities responsible for so much holiday stress is shopping for gifts. We don't want to forget anyone! There are spouses, partners, children, parents, other relatives... friends, co-workers, and service providers, to name a few. But the most important person on your list often is forgotten. In fact, she often never even makes it onto your gift list. Who is this poor woman? The one who is forgotten in all the holiday preparation madness? It's you. It's me. It's all of us. If you're like many women, the holidays is a time to take care of everyone. We shop, we host parties, we bake cookies, we put together amazing lavish meals for our friends and family, we volunteer at our children's schools and we donate to charity, just to name a few.

Gratitude, Bombshell Style | Boudoir + Glamour by Daysy

Happy holidays, Bombshell! Welcome to another busy, festive, crazy, and joyous season! It seems like we are continuing to keep COVID-19 in the rear-view mirror, with parties, shopping trips, festive dinners, caroling, light shows, trips to visit family and friends... and that's just the tip of the candy cane! It's also the season to count our blessings. Today, we're practicing gratitude, bombshell style! Recipe for Happiness? A Big Pinch of Gratitude While you are busy finding the perfect gift for that special someone, and remembering to be kind and charitable to your community, and baking a batch of your grandpa's favorite cookies, don't forget to take a moment every day to be grateful for all the blessings you have. The fall and winter holiday season traditionally is a time for us to count our blessings, but sometimes in all the frivolity, we forget. Here at the boudoir studio, we are taking a moment to reflect on some of the things that made us happy and well this year. Won't you please join in? Daysy is grateful to God and his life-changing lessons. "This is why I am here," says Daysy. "I can’t put into words how much gratitude I have [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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. [...]

Meet Your Boudoir Photographer | Boudoir by Daysy

Hello, Beautiful! Today I want to introduce you to your boudoir photographer, Daysy! Daysy has been a professional photographer since 2015. Between family responsibilities and running a successful studio, Daysy knows what it’s like to be last on your own priority list. She knows what it's like to look into the mirror and you see what has faded and been lost, instead of seeing the stunning, playful, and sexy woman who is still inside, but who has been neglected or put on the back burner for too long. Why Become a Boudoir Photographer? Daysy didn't begin her career as a photographer shooting boudoir photoshoots. For a long time, Daysy was a wedding photographer and videographer. However, she eventually discovered that it was boudoir photography that was especially meaningful for her. Daysy realized that boudoir photography touched something very meaningful in her soul. Here's what Daysy has to say about why she became a boudoir photographer: I’m a boudoir photographer because of what I believe most deeply in my heart. Maybe that sounds cheesy, but I’m a boudoir photographer because of how I live and what I love. At my core, I believe that boudoir photography allows me to express my [...]
