As I’ve mentioned before, Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. It’s the day that some of us like to celebrate being in love, or lust, whatever takes your fancy. Love is a big motivating factor when choosing to book a boudoir photography session and I love seeing clients create amazing sensual images for the special person in their life. But this Valentine’s Day I am personally going to be celebrating a different kind of love, in my opinion it’s the one that matters most. I am going to have a hot bath and a glass of wine and show myself some pure, unconditional love. When it comes down to it, having love for ourselves should really be our number one priority. Without love for ourselves how can we show it to anyone else?
The idea of being with someone forever is lovely, but in reality there’s only one person in your life that’s guaranteed to be with you until the day you die and that is YOU. If you want to be truly happy then learning to love yourself wholly and unconditionally is one sure way to start you on the path towards happiness and contentment. There are many ways to show yourself love, such as taking time out to indulge in your favourite past time for no other reason except that you enjoy it. Or giving yourself a day off from a stressful job and just relaxing by the beach on your own. Or calling up your best friend and spending 3 hours on the phone laughing and chatting instead of doing the housework.
Having a photoshoot is one really amazing and indulgent way to show yourself some love. The makeover will make you feel incredible, and seeing photos of yourself looking fierce and sexy will just blow your mind. You don’t need to have a partner to do a boudoir photoshoot, and even if you do, the photos don’t have to be purely for his or her eyes only. Having a photo shoot done just for yourself is empowering, liberating and uplifting. And the photos you get will forever be a reminder of the powerful, unique and amazing woman you are!
So this Valentine’s Day I implore you to take sometime out to show yourself how much you love and appreciate yourself. Take a photo of what you’re doing and post in on Instagram or Facebook so everyone can see that you truly value yourself above all else. And if you really want to spoil yourself see our Valentine’s Day Special offer here. It’s not just for couples 🙂
Happy Valentine’s Day ladies!
