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. [...]

Boudoir Loves Bodysuits! | Boudoir + Glamour by Daysy

Hello, Bombshell! Today we are giving some love to one of our favorite wardrobe pieces for boudoir--the BODYSUIT. As you consider what to wear for your photoshoot, don't overlook this versatile and sexy outfit! What's to Love About Bodysuits? A bodysuit is a one-piece lingerie outfit that either pulls on, laces up or snaps at the crotch. Bodysuits come in all kinds of fun shapes, styles and colors.

The Truth About Your Comfort Zone | Boudoir Photography in Maryland

Hey there, Gorgeous! I want to tell you the truth about your comfort zone. First of all, we all have a comfort zone. According to Wikipedia, a comfort zone is "a psychological state in which things feel familiar to a person and they are at ease and in control of their environment, experiencing low levels of anxiety and stress." That sounds nice, doesn't it?  Feeling comfortable, confident, and safe are all good things, right? Who wouldn't want to stay inside her comfort zone? The Dangers of Being Comfortable Here is the truth about comfort zones. It's dangerous to stay there too long. Staying in our comfort zone means we don't take chances. We don't push ourselves to try new things, learn about ourselves, or get past our limits. If we want to grow, we must be willing to get out of our comfort zones. It's the only way we will get to discover life's many great experiences. For many women, a boudoir photoshoot is an experience waaaaaaay out of their comfort zone. In fact, that's one of the most common reasons women give for wanting to come to the studio, get glammed up, and pose for professional photos. Here is [...]
