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.

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.

Twenty Seconds of Insane Courage | Boudoir by Daysy

“You know, sometimes all you need is twenty seconds of insane courage. Just literally twenty seconds of just embarrassing bravery. And I promise you, something great will come of it.” ― Benjamin Mee in We Bought a Zoo Hello, Lovely! I heard this movie quote recently and started thinking about it.  Can a brief moment of bravery really lead to something great? Can it truly alter the course of your life? What do you think? Of course, this reminded me of a boudoir photoshoot. For many women, giving themselves the gift of a boudoir photoshoot absolutely required twenty seconds of insane courage. Courage to turn off the negative inner voices telling them they weren't "right" for boudoir photos. Courage to ignore the fear of stepping into their beauty. Courage to break free of their comfort zone. The reward for enduring these twenty seconds of courage? An amazing, life-altering gift of self-care and self-love. Boudoir photography is a beautiful way to take care of yourself and unlock your inner goddess! Once that happens, everything will be different. A boudoir photoshoot might just become a pivotal moment in your life. What's Holding You Back? Here at the studio, we offer a luxury [...]
