Boudoir photography isn’t just for the ladies. It can also be a chance to reconnect and get intimate with your significant other. Just like with women’s boudoir, you don’t have to be young and hot or have reached a specific weight to do a couple’s boudoir session. All you have to bring is the love you share (and a few outfits) and a willingness to be open and vulnerable.
Be comfortable in your skin
One of the wonderful things about being in a relationship is learning to see ourselves the way our partners see us. Instead of focusing on the flaws you see when you look in the mirror, you can remember that you are loved just as you are. A couple’s boudoir photography session is the perfect reminder of how your partner sees you and how valuable that feeling is.
And this goes both ways! Men struggle with body issues just as much as women—they’re just less likely to talk about it. A boudoir session can be an opportunity for both of you to feel more comfortable and at home in the skin you’re in and learn to love yourselves a little more.
Celebrate a beginning
Engagement photography isn’t the only way to celebrate the beginning of your new life together. A couple’s boudoir session can be a reminder of the intimacy and love you share and a way to mark your new beginning as newlyweds.
You can also use boudoir to mark other milestones in your life, like the birth of a child or even a career change. Couples choose to do boudoir photography for any number of reasons or without a reason at all. Maybe you just want to capture some intimate photos of how much you adore one another, and there’s nothing wrong with that!
Capture a love that has lasted years
Love and marriage can both be challenging in a variety of ways, and it’s important to be grateful for the person who has stood by your side in your hardest times. Celebrate your love with a couple’s boudoir session and remind each other how much you appreciate one another and how glad you are to have the other person in your life.
Reconnect with one another
Whether you’re going through a difficult transition in your life or you’re starting to feel distant from one another, a couple’s boudoir session can offer you an opportunity to reconnect and re-center. Maybe you’ve been through a traumatic experience and just need to remember the love that has held you both together.
Whatever your reason, boudoir photography can offer a valuable chance to be vulnerable and open with one another and to rekindle the intimacy you may struggle to feel at times.
Remind yourself of your sexiness
Being sexy is not limited to a specific age or weight, and there is nothing sexier to you than the person you love. Boudoir photography allows you to celebrate your physical connection and the sexual attraction that drew the two of you together at the beginning of your relationship. Seeing couples celebrate the unique ways they love one another is one of the many joys of photography.
