We always talk about boudoir being a gift for your husband, but the truth is a boudoir shoot is so much more than that. Boudoir is empowerment, and helps us see ourselves like everyone else does, strong and beautiful. At Adoralee Boudoir Studio, OKC boudoir specialists, they are helping brides everywhere find that feeling of empowerment before they head down the aisle.
As brides all of us are subject to so much judgment with our appearance. We go to a bridal boutique with all our girlfriends, are expected to fit into the sample size dress and have to look in the mirror and ask ourselves if we look beautiful enough. It’s a tough thing for girls of any size, and it’s a shame because we are all gorgeous no matter what we’re wearing.
As a newlywed I was facing this exact problem before I walked down the aisle. I had been to more than a couple fittings for my wedding dress, and the look of the dress on me was really starting to have an effect. I kept thinking, if only my hips were narrower, my legs longs, my arms thinner, THEN I would be beautiful. It’s so easy to fall into this trap when you spend so much time worrying over the way you’re going to look on your wedding day.
Just when I felt like there was no hope, and I was going to look like a white whale walking down the aisle, I decided that I would do a boudoir shoot. I went into Adoralee wanting to create a special gift for my soon-to-be husband, but left with so much more.
I went through my session nervous as can be, but my photographer Ashley kept assuring me how amazing I looked. The worst part was waiting in the viewing room to see what the pictures look like, but when the screen turned on I got much more than I bargained for.
As I looked through the un-retouched images, I didn’t see a bride nervous about how she’d look in her wedding dress, but instead I saw the woman that is going to be a wife soon & a woman that is undeniably sexy.
It was just what I needed, to finally see myself like my husband sees me. I left Adoralee that day with my head held high and maybe even a little extra swing in my walk. And let me tell you, I had my very last dress fitting that same week & I looked absolutely stunning on wedding day just like I know you all will.
