What motivates women to do a Boudoir photo shoot?

Updated: Apr 19, 2019

In the early days of Boudoir photography, many studios would market their experiences as "A great gift for the husband!" While that still rings true, we believe that there's plenty more reason to take part. Moreover, we believe most of these motivations are born from women wanting to do something for THEMSELVES.


Having discussed the topic as a team, we reached out to some of our gorgeous customers on Facebook and asked them what motivated them to take part in the Femme Fatale experience. Here's what some of them had to say:


"I did it as a Mum of 5. Everyone else said I looked good, I thought I looked awful so I did it to see if I could see what everyone else saw. I came away very happy!" - Rachael


"To have a photo of my boobs before my mastectomy" - Jeni


"I wanted to record a moment in time where I loved myself inside and out" - Malwina


"To build confidence with my body, being a single mum for such a long time, I kind of wanted to know if I could be anything else, be just me and maybe be a sexy version on me." - Tamsin


"For confidence and self appreciation. I've never done anything like this before and it was totally outside my comfort zone. On the day everyone was so lovely and i had the most amazing day" - Michelle


"To gain body confidence and it worked! Although it was nerve wracking I really loved the pictures and I'm proud of them!" - Bex


"Mine was after a break-up. I wanted to show that I am confident and am able to face the world head on" - Stacey


"I hit 50 and hated it. I had to find something that would put me out of my comfort zone and prove to me that I still had something to offer. I adore my photos and i'm so happy I did it!" - Vanessa


"I'm a Mum of three beautiful children, so my body had changed a lot. I also had major surgery to remove my pancreas and I now have a major sized scar across my stomach so I did it for body confidence and to be proud of my scars" - Katie


"Wanted to prove to myself and to other people, you might not like your body but you should never be ashamed of it" - Claire


"I had come out of a period of severe anxiety. Needed a confidence boost. So glad i did it!" - Jessica


"I wanted to get my sexy back... I was super brave and like to challenge myself" - Jo


...And that's just a small selection of the comments we received!


Be it a celebration of a milestone, to gain some body confidence or to mark a new chapter their lives - more often than not, women are motivated to do a Boudoir Photo Shoot for themselves!
