When is the Right Time for a Boudoir Photography Shoot?

As women, we can make up excuses for just about anything.

I’ll buy new jeans when I lose 15 pounds. Once I tone my arms I’ll start wearing sleeveless tops. I’ll start exercising again, tomorrow. I’ll start liking myself in photographs once I lose this baby weight.

At Lucidaré Studio, we don’t believe in excuses. We fully believe everyone should live in the now, no matter where you’re at with your fitness, weight, or beauty goals.

So, when asked the question, ‘when should I schedule boudoir photography at Lucidaré Studio in Columbus, Ohio’?, we say ‘there’s no better time than right now.’

Why? Because you’ll never be who you are again in this moment, and that is part of the beauty of capturing yourself in any state during a boudoir session. Whether it’s pre-engagement, post-wedding, right at the beginning of a pregnancy or right after (even 10 years after a pregnancy), it’s always the right time for a boudoir shoot.

A common misconception is that all boudoir shoots are meant to be gifted to another person, most likely a spouse or life partner, and show off all of your best physical assets in the sexiest way possible. However, this doesn’t have to be the case.

Any woman can have a boudoir shoot for any reason, whether it be as a gift to her spouse or a gift to herself. You do not have to wear skimpy lingerie, and you do not have to work on perfecting the perfect sexy pose. You can look just as beautiful (or sexy, if that’s what you’re going for), in a delicate sweater or your favorite t-shirt as you can in a strappy bustier and matching stockings.

This is because at its core, a boudoir photography session is about capturing who you are and emphasizing your natural beauty. It’s a testament to where you are in your life, where you’ve been, and where you hope to go. It’s something you can look back on years down the road and reminisce on the person you were, and be reminded of the life journey you’ve been on and all of the progress yet to come.
