For my 35th birthday this year, I bought myself something special--a boudoir photo session! Specifically, a gift certificate for one to be used next year. The photographer that I had been eyeing for a really long time had this spontaneous amazing sale on gift certificates with only 5 available so I snatched one up and saved $150!! The session takes place at her gorgeous studio in Greensboro and includes hair & makeup (which by the way, if you are considering boudoir you really need to do hair and makeup or don't bother at all).
So this is something that I've wanted to do for myself for a long time, because I've never had beautiful photos done of myself, like.... ever. And turning 35 this year really kind of made me feel like if I'm gonna do it, do it soon. I'll never be this young again. ;) It's one thing to just think about it and say, "oh someday I'd like to do that"..... but someday remains this nebulous undefined cloud until you actually DO it and commit to it.
I'm so excited about this, and I've already started buying a few things here and there to put together a few outfits. With the recent Black Friday sales, I got some amazing deals! I'm losing weight and toning up and I'm aiming for possibly an April or May session..... we'll see what she has available next year and if I can plan a trip to NC around it.
I've been thinking about it a lot lately, and getting so excited, and wanting to talk to people about it, but realized I have no one to talk to about it. But then I realized, hey! I have a blog! I can put it all out there and people can read it and roll their eyes and I'll never know it. :) Whatever! I'm going to share some of the beautiful things I've bought, want to see?
