You are NEVER too old for a boudoir session. Never. No matter what mainstream patriarchal nonsense is echoing in your mind, there is no expiration date for what is sensual and sultry. Womxnhood, like top-shelf whiskeys and elegant wines, reveals nuanced complexity with time. The more mature the womxn, the more delightful the growth.
It really bums me out that some individuals consider themselves “too old” for boudoir. Boudoir is often a big event that a person can think about and consider for years, and to force that dream to die because of a certain age is heartbreaking. Mature womxn have so much to gain from boudoir and less time to waste, so let’s talk about why you should book the shoot and do the thing.
As my mama, grandmama, and aunties have shown me all my life, they can do whatever they set their minds to. Boudoir is a confidence boost, and that kind of radical self-love is appropriate every damn day. You deserve to be refreshed by your own sexiness and revel in positive thoughts. Your professional sharpness doesn’t vanish at retirement and neither should your self-love.
Life happens, and as the twists and turns lead us through the unexpected, the older womxn understands more of both joy and loss. You have spent many years with yourself, and have seen the many versions of yourself grow and bloom. Boudoir honors all of those eras and encapsulates the inner goddess that has done so much for you through the years.
So many desires and dreams have been placed on the back burner throughout your life. There’s always tomorrow, always next year, but that becomes less comforting as years and then decades go by. Now is the moment to seize the day and put yourself in the spotlight. Boudoir portraits are timeless and something you can enjoy for your lifetime. It’s time.
The years have brought the cellulite, the wrinkles, the spots… You’re not the pants size you were in your twenties, when you got married, or before you had your first child. You have grey hairs and dry skin. I get it- it’s something we all go through. But your sexiness and desirability have only grown within you, and now more than ever, you know what you want. Revel in how boudoir brings out your mature creativity and your playfulness.
