Supermodel Sabrina: Be Your Own Number One!

Hello, beautiful! Today we are happy to welcome another one of our gorgeous bombshells to the mic for an episode of our podcast, Bombshell Tells All. Let's say hello to the lovely and centered Sabrina! Sabrina's Story Sabrina is that rare Washington, D.C. native who still calls this area home. In fact, her daughters attend the same elementary school that Sabrina attended! She lives here with her husband and daughters and works as a librarian. You can forget that cliche about librarians being quiet and mousey, though. Sabrina is anything but! This caring, intelligent, and funny lady understands that the best things in life require hard work; at the same time, she understands the importance of taking quiet moments just for herself. In fact, one of her favorite things is enjoying some solitude in the backyard hammock! Even so, Sabrina also loves getting all dolled up for a night on the town. What brought Sabrina to the boudoir photography studio? "I was having some self-esteem issues and I wanted to do something for myself as a personal boost," says Sabrina. Her favorite part was feeling like a model and forgetting to be self-conscious about her so-called "problem areas." Just one [...]

Hello, Beautiful! Happy Women's History Month! What a perfect time to honor the amazing contributions made by women. What a perfect time to honor the amazing woman you are! According to the National Women's History Museum, Women's History Month was once only a week-long event. In 1980, President Jimmy Carter issued a proclamation declaring the week of March 8, 1980 as Women's History Week. Then, in 1987, Congress passed Public Law 100-9, designating March as “Women’s History Month.” To highlight all the amazing achievements of women in this country would turn this into the longest blog post of all time. Here are just a tiny number of impressive achievements by women throughout history: Dr. Annie Webb Blanton (1870-1945) had lost her twin sister and both of her parents by the time she was just 18 years old. She went on to become the first woman elected President of the Texas State Teachers' Association, and then the first woman elected to a public office in Texas. Blanton promoted equality for women teachers and established a system of free textbooks. Mary Kate Callahan (1996- ) became a paraplegic as an infant after a virus attacked her spinal cord.

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 [...]
