A Boudoir Session - Is It Worth the Investment?
One of my absolute favorites when it comes to my work is the sense of joy and satisfaction my clients display while looking at their finished images. A sense of awe, a disbelief at how gorgeous they are. “Wow, is it really me?”- they often ask. And this in and of itself is usually the reason why boudoir seems worth the investment for many of them.
A professional boudoir session done by an experienced photographer can be pricey. The price is often a limiting factor when it comes to client’s final decision as to whether or not they can afford the experience. Nonetheless, some experiences are pricey and priceless at the same time. I certainly believe that boudoir is one of them.
So let’s take a closer look as to why an intimate photography session is worth its price tag.
For most women, a boudoir session is a form of indulgence. We all deserve a pampering experience once in a while. We all deserve some time dedicated to ourselves to celebrate our bodies, our beauty, our sense of attractiveness. Some consider it a form of vanity- so it be! A small dose of vanity is healthy and encouraged! For many women, a boudoir session is luxury, both literally and metaphorically. And as we all know, luxury comes with a price.
Classic boudoir techniques that use natural light often result in beautiful, absolutely timeless images that you can cherish forever. You can always go back to them and they will never go out of style. That’s the nature and beauty of classics. Yes, they can be expensive but ultimately worth the investment.
It is very difficult to compare boudoir to any other experience. It can have a different purpose and meaning for different clients. There are many reasons why women decide to do it – from pure indulgence to emotional healing. Some experiences, although purchased, are invaluable and definitely worth every penny.
