As our 7th wedding anniversary is just around the corner, I reminisce about those days, who we were, and how much we’ve grown. I remember one significant feeling I experienced was feeling like I was transitioning from being a girl to a woman, and that feeling was later enhanced when I became a mother. I used to think that marriage was no big deal, just signatures on a piece of paper. Why would our relationship change just because we have a change in title, right? But after being married, I slowly learned and embraced what it meant for two to become one. I am now not only responsible for my own life, but his too (this feeling was again augmented when I became a mother).
During the transition from carefree girl to responsible wife (and eventually even more responsible mother), I felt a change in me that I didn’t quite know how to explain, but one form of expression and documentation I did was having boudoir photos taken. While “gift for him” was the excuse that got me to do it, it ended up really being a gift for myself. Having these intimate photos taken allowed me to embrace myself for who I was, and though I was so nervous about my insecurities, such an intimate photo shoot actually made me forget my insecurities. I felt so empowered and beautiful. I am so grateful that I documented this transition in womanhood.
Would you have boudoir photos taken? Have you? I’d love to hear your experience with boudoir.
