7 Ways to Prepare for Your Boudoir Experience

I am so happy!!

Is it really SUMMER??!

Girls - we all know what that means

No more untamed legs - wild hair - and goodness knows what else

No more wearing socks up to our armpits - hats down to our knees - and no more tripling our layers while we overdose on tea to keep cozy?!

It's time to get our legs out - put our winter woolies away - and put a smile on our faces!

And it's time for a few patio Prosecos <3

It's funny how we all make more of an effort as the sun comes out.

And I'm currently doing A Beautiful Inspiration style challenge which is helping me get out of the winter funk!

Are You Ready for a Boudoir Session?

Don't do anything you're not ready for - and definitely don't do anything you're not comfortable with.

You may not be ready for a boudoir session yet.

But why?

Because you're too shy?

Because you don't want to get naked in front of a stranger?

Or you're not sexy enough?

Just so you know, though...

You are not too shy for boudoir.

You do not have to get naked.

You don't even have to wear 'sexy' undies if you don't want.

Boudoir is all about being you.
