We know that not everyone feels comfortable naked, or even in their underwear. Here at Evie Smith Photography, we believe everyone should be happy and confident in their own skin. If you’re not there yet, we can help you. If you are there and just want to prove it, we can help you too. This is our speciality, so trust us, we’ve got this. 

We believe in empowerment and femininity, whether you are 19 or 70 years old – and anything in between. We believe everybody should feel confident with who they are because nobody should feel they have anything to hide.

To help convince you if you’re not already with us, we’ve put together our top ten reasons why you – yes you – should treat yourself to a boudoir photo shoot with us.

1. YOU WILL LEAVE WITH MORE SELF-ASSURANCE THAN YOU BRING IN

This is the big one ladies, the money shot. When we are done, you will feel confident, radiant, powerful and super sexy. There’s no judgement here, we are all about helping you see how beautiful you are and capturing that image forever. The experience is liberating for everyone involved, but especially for you. It’s your choice whether you want the world to see or keep it as a secret reminder for yourself!

2. YOU WILL HAVE FUN

This process can’t truly be successful unless you relax. We’re experts at putting our clients at ease so that we can capture you at your absolute best. If you aren’t happy, we aren’t happy. Our aim is to portray who you are, so we need you to be yourself. Nobody is more themselves than when they are having fun. Whether you need a cup of tea or a glass of wine to calm those nerves, we have it covered. Most importantly, we want you to enjoy yourself in our friendly, relaxed and quite frankly gorgeous studio!

3. REALISE THE POWER OF YOUR OWN SEXUALITY

We’re all grown-ups here but sometimes our perceptions of ourselves can be a little off, stunted even. We can struggle to see ourselves separate from the label of the mother, the wife or the daughter. This might be something invisible that we carry around without even realising. Taking time to focus on you, within a calm and trusting atmosphere will help you to reconnect with yourself, and help you see that you can be all of those labels and more – wrapped up in one stunning package.

4. CRUSH YOUR SELF IMAGE DOUBTS

There are very few of us who don’t have niggles about our body. Some of us more than others. We aim to crush those doubts – not through fear, but in a supportive, honest environment. We will make sure all of your best bits are the stars of the show. And, if we can’t convince you that the rest of you is gorgeous too, then we will make sure you’re happy with how it all looks.

Often, we only see ourselves from a single perspective. That perspective isn’t necessarily a true reflection of who you are, and what you look like. Think about the women who you are closest to, and ask yourself whether they see themselves the way you see them. Whether they notice all of the things you love about them. And now consider whether it’s possible that they see beautiful things in you that you’re not even aware of…

Once you (literally!) see yourself from different angles, it’s amazing how freeing and liberating that new view can be.

5. BRING YOUR SEXUALITY INTO PERSPECTIVE

We all have busy lives and sometimes our sexuality can slip on to the back burner. For your time with us, and hopefully, for long after you’ve left, we want your sexuality to be brought back into perspective. Sexuality isn’t something that needs to be hidden away in the bedroom for when the time is right, it’s part of who we are. None of us should be ashamed of that. We want everyone to be comfortable with being all of who we are, all of the time. We are only here once after all, why waste time being anything less than our whole selves?

6. EMPOWER YOUR PREDATORY SIDE

Do you want to wear leopard print knickers? Go for it! Want to pose like a lion stalking a gazelle? You go girl! From the extreme to the more subtle, whether we’re flipping the tables on whom normally wears the sexuality trousers or reinforcing your natural dominance, exploring this in a safe environment will set you free! If you really want to have some fun with this, it could be great for a couples shoot – but that doesn’t mean you can’t both be predators…

7. DESTROY THE MYTH THAT EROTIC HAS TO BE PORNOGRAPHIC

Firstly, a boudoir photo shoot doesn’t mean naked. You can wear whatever makes you feel sexy. This could be sexy underwear, kinky lingerie or a super slinky silk scarf draped in just the right way. Use your imagination and feel free to bring options with you.

We’re not up for capturing crude shots, this isn’t for a biology textbook or some top-shelf magazine. This is for you. The finished print will be classy, sophisticated, and as naked as you are comfortable with. At the end of the day, we want you to be proud of this. The finished result should be something that you’d be happy to share. Of course, whether you do or not is entirely up to you!

8. YOU WILL HAVE THE FINAL SAY (HINT: THAT’S MORE EMPOWERMENT FOR YOU)

We want you to be comfortable. You get to choose what you wear and we will give you direction on how to sit, stand and where to put your hands. But, if you’re not comfortable with any of our suggestions, we’ll move on. The photoshoot is for you, of you, and it needs to be all about you. If you’re not happy with something, we can talk about it.  We can review the images we take along the way and we will give you friendly encouragement to get the absolute best out of the session.

When we say we believe in the empowerment of women, we mean it. It’s your body, your confidence. We can help you get there, but we can’t get there for you. So yes, you get the final say.

9. SEE YOURSELF THROUGH SOMEONE ELSE’S EYES

Ever wondered how your partner sees you? Or how the rest of the world could see you? Throughout the shoot, we will give you honest feedback, reassurance and inspiration. Then, when it’s all over, you will be able to see the proof that you are beautiful. You can hang it on the wall for all to see, or you can keep it all to yourself! Once you are faced with the truth that others see, you’ll never turn back…

10. YOU’LL TELL OTHER WOMEN HOW AMAZING IT IS, SO THEY WANT A PIECE OF YOUR CONFIDENCE PIE

Even if you decide not to share the proof of how gorgeous you are, you won’t be able to keep the whole experience to yourself. You’ll share with girlfriends, family and anyone who will listen, how amazing you felt during and afterwards. This is a wonderful gift for you to give to other women:  Helping someone else feel beautiful and passing it on.

I’m sure we can all think of a number of women who aren’t as confident as we think they should be. Who don’t see themselves the way we see them. This is a sad reality we all face daily – but that doesn’t mean that we need to accept it. There are things we can do, for ourselves and each other, to close the gap between our critical voice and that other, kinder, softer and ultimately more powerful voice. That voice is only powerful if we give it a chance and listen to it.

Come on ladies, we all deserve to feel awesome.
