The photo on the left is pretty much what I look like in my day to day life. I braid my hair so my daughter’s sticky baby fingers don’t get stuck in it. I learned this the hard way with my first daughter. The only makeup I wear is Burt’s Bees lip balm. I keep a fairly basic tshirt and jeans wardrobe too. BUT (and that’s a big but) I really like to be very girly at least once a year. Hence the photo on the right. I’m talking a ton of time on my hair, actually wearing some makeup and of course putting on a fancy dress and heels. Then my husband and I go out on a date to some place nice, spend way more than normal on food and thoroughly enjoy ourselves without any guilt. See all too often we get stuck in our day to day lives and the people we are in them. Then life gets boring. That’s why my husband and I enjoy our once a year super fancy date. It’s also why I love to photograph boudoir sessions. It’s stepping out of the boring day to day. It’s a time to love yourself. Feel sexy. And of course thoroughly enjoy yourself without any guilt.
