A Boudoir Portrait Session Is Self Care

Arcadia Boudoir was recently featured in East Valley Moms' self-care guide. I'm excited to be included because I know first-hand what a boudoir portrait session can do for our self-perceptions, and I'm grateful to be able to share that with the EVM community.

I'm writing this from the new Pyro restaurant in Arcadia. I'm having a cocktail, enjoying AZ's spring weather, and chatting with friends on random apps. I took a day off work to re-center myself. It's not just any day, it's my birthday. I'm in a fantastic mood. This is self care. This is self love.

There's a perception that boudoir photos are usually for someone else (spouse, lover, spicy social media posts). While those are definitely valid reasons to get boudoir photos, I think there is an even better reason. Self care.

I spent a lot of my life feeling bad about my body and feeling like I was not enough. But I worked really hard to overcome those feelings. I hit the gym, stocked up on endorphins and dopamine, got some better outfits, and finally felt Notice I didn't say anything about whether my physical form actually changed. It did, but that's not the point. I felt like it was changing. I felt stronger. Self care.

To celebrate my new self-perceptions, I booked not one, but two boudoir photography sessions. And I'm booking my third soon. I've trusted my photographers to help me celebrate myself. It's exhilarating.

And you can trust me to do the same. I know the right angles, the right lighting, and the right composition to create images of yourself that you'll love. I won't settle for anything less than providing a fulfilling self-love experience. It's self-care.

If you're ready to book your boudoir portrait session, contact me.
