A special THANK YOU to L for allowing us to share her BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHY experience with you lovelies today <3 We are extremely private when it comes to what we show and don’t show with our boudoir photography imagery. Sex and sensuality are meant for a husband and wife to enjoy and share in the covenant before God. In Matthew 19: 4-6 is states “Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, ‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.” We are to enjoy the passion, love, and sexual pleasures God has created so naturally with only our spouse. God is not against sex, only in an unhealthy, sinful manner (1 Corinthians 7:2). For I love the verse in Proverbs 5:19 A lovely deer, a graceful doe. Let her breasts fill you at all times with delight; be intoxicated always in her love! Be encouraged with this sweet experience L shared when looking for her perfect boudoir photographer =)
“I had the hardest time trying to decide what to give my (soon-to-be) husband as a wedding gift. It was stressing me out, on top of all the other wedding decisions I had to make. Pinterest offered some good (and some not so good) suggestions, including boudoir photography. I was really hesitant to even think about a boudoir shoot when I first discovered that it was a “thing.” I immediately thought, “That’s wrong.” You have to understand, I grew up in a very conservative, Christian environment where anything related to sex or sexiness is almost taboo. With that in mind, I moved on to other gift ideas. But, the more I thought and prayed about what I should get for my husband, the more I thought about boudoir photography. I visited many different photographer’s websites, viewed their “mission statements” and pictures, and just never felt comfortable about the idea…until I found Jan.
Don’t get me wrong, I was still scared out of my mind about doing a boudoir shoot. I’m not a very adventurous or outgoing person, and that is the one thing my husband constantly encourages me to improve upon. For me, this is the perfect way to show him how excited I am about starting a life with him. It’s a way for me to show him that I am willing to be adventurous with and for him. If I didn’t give him these pictures, would our marriage really be any different? Maybe not. But for our relationship, me taking these pictures is more than just pictures in a book. It’s a gesture of sorts, I guess. It means a lot to both of us that I was courageous enough to branch out and take these pictures for my husband.
Besides having an awesome experience with Jan, never once feeling uncomfortable or awkward or like I was sinning, I feel that this experience has both challenged and nurtured my faith. I had a lot of questions and doubts about taking this step, but I prayed a LOT about it. And God pointed me to Jan, and He helped me realize that this is not a bad thing. This little book of pictures will be an important thing for our marriage, and I am so grateful that I found a trustworthy photographer like Jan! -L”
