Holy crap, you did it! You just finished (and ROCKED!) your boudoir session…but now what?! The good news is, the perks and fun of your boudoir experience don’t end with the final click of the camera! After your photoshoot, you can keep riding the self-love train to get the most out of all the confidence and good vibes you’re feeling. Here are 5 things you should do after your boudoir session to make the most of your boudoir journey and to keep on loving you!
You jut did something awesome, so take a moment to acknowledge and appreciate yourself for embracing your beauty and confidence. It takes guts to be vulnerable and open up to someone for a boudoir session, especially if you’re in lingerie (or less)! So, treat yourself to a little celebration to mark the occasion! It could be as simple as doing a little happy dance, indulging in your favorite dessert, or having a glass of champagne to toast yourself, but definitely take a moment to bask in your awesomeness!
Definitely stretch. Boudoir can be a bit of a workout, and the last you want to happen after your session is to wake up sore as hell the next morning. Boudoir sessions are a ton of fun but also physically and emotionally tiring, so take some time to relax and unwind after the session. Do some light stretching or yoga, drink some water, and get yourself something to eat, your body will thank you!
Spend some time reflecting on your boudoir session: how it made you feel, the moments that made you feel beautiful and empowered, the emotions it brought up, and the confidence it instilled in you. Journaling about your thoughts and feelings can be a therapeutic way to process your experience. If you feel comfortable, share with close friends who appreciate and support your journey, too. Talking about it can help boost your self-esteem and reinforce the positivity and empowerment you felt during your photoshoot.
Girls’ night out, date night, whatever! You’re all glammed up and feeling good, so have a night out on the town. How often do you get to let loose after having professional hair and makeup done?! Take advantage of how great you feel and look, and keep the celebration going with your favorite person or people. You’ll be glowing and strutting your stuff all day and night!
Use your boudoir session as a catalyst for embracing self-love and body positivity everyday. Remind yourself of the beauty within and practice self-care routines that make you feel empowered and confident. This is a great opportunity to set new goals, too! Build on your newfound confidence and set new personal goals or challenges for yourself. Whether it’s taking up a new hobby, building a new habit, or pursuing a long-held dream, let your boudoir session be a stepping stone toward personal growth.
Your boudoir experience is all about celebrating yourself for who you are and transforming the way you see yourself. Keep the self-love going everyday after your session to really get the most out of your experience and keep living your best life!
Bonus Tip: Plan your next session! If you had a wonderful experience with your boudoir photoshoot, start thinking about your next session. Whether it’s for an anniversary, celebrating your birthday, or just to capture a different side of yourself, having something to look forward to can keep your confidence and self-love journey alive.
