Welcome to Our New Studio!! | Boudoir + Glamour by Daysy

Hello gorgeous! If you have been following us here or on our VIP Facebook group, the Bombshell Lounge, you already know that in March, we began an ambitious and complete renovation of our studio space. This project was particularly ambitious because the studio is part of Daysy's home. Not Just Another Photography Studio Boudoir photography studios are not like other photography studios. A boudoir studio needs to be elegant, sensual, and comfortable. The studio needs to include an area exclusively for hair and makeup, a changing area, and overall must create a beautiful environment for our bombshells. In planning the renovation, photographer Daysy and her team considered all this, plus came up with some exciting new boudoir sets. Bombshells coming to the new studio will truly love all the luxurious choices they will have! There are so many new settings for your photoshoot, including: a gorgeous bedroom with a big beautiful bed; a classy and modern bathroom, with a gorgeous new shower, perfect for a sexy shower set; and lovely new furniture, including a beautiful egg chair! The possibilities are delightfully endless! Worth the Wait? The renovation took six weeks before the studio was ready for its next bombshell. We [...]

Celebrating Women All Year Long | Boudoir by Daysy

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. She took up swimming [...]

Hello, beautiful! Today I have an uncomfortable question to ask: Is a boudoir photoshoot worth the price? I know, I know--I'm biased!

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.

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.

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 [...]

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 [...]
