Boudoir Affirmation Cards Make The Perfect Boudoir Client Gift

Everyone that walks into Embodied Art Boudoir is not experiencing anything by accident! I’ve worked hard to curate a boudoir photoshoot experience that aims to have you walk away with a renewed or re-ignited sense of self-confidence, self-worth & self-understanding. 

Through thoughtful mindful practices, empathetic coaching & a safe space created to let everything go, it’s a life-changing experience & a chance to take back your power & voice. It works!

I’m directing this blog post to both fellow boudoir photographers & clients, so if you’re a photographer, I’d love to hear about the practices you involve to make your process unique!

But…what happens to this surreal feeling clients feel, weeks or months after the shoot!?

After The BOUDOIR Shoot 

Okay, I am not going to lie to you: eventually, that feeling of confidence and self-admiration CAN start to fade. I’m still working on bottling this magic up for you to take home 😉

But, until then, it does take being an active participant in life & self-care practices to re-ignite these feelings.

Here are some of my suggestions for improving self-confidence & body image post-shoot: 

  • Observe your thought pattern & actively stand up to your inner critic/bully when it has something negative to say. Replace these thoughts with something positive or respectful. 
  • Practice bodily gratitude through a massage, a warm bath/shower & any type of physical activity. Going for a long walk without headphones is a fantastic way to connect to yourself.  
  • Re-visit your boudoir products!  Open & admire your album, witness your wall art or folio box & slide through the photos on your app. These products have the power of bringing you right back to the day of your shoot. 
  • Spend time reflecting throughout your day on the things your body allows you to do & enjoy. Don’t leave that beautiful brain of yours out, either! Did you suggest something that has taken off at work? Celebrate! Did you make someone laugh? Celebrate! The little moments are what lead to the bigger ones. 
  • Curate your fashion & closet to reflect your unique spirit & outlook on the world. It’s amazing how a great outfit can make you feel. 
  • Establish firm boundaries with yourself & hold yourself accountable establishing firm trust & self-respect. 
  • Accept compliments from others without deflecting. 

And finally…incorporate affirmations!

What Are Affirmations? 

It’s funny because when you break down what affirmations are, they’re wildly simple! But the impact & reverbs in your life are far from simple. Affirmations are positive, decisive & specific statements that you can repeat daily to conquer self-sabotaging, negative thinking & self-criticism. 

When used regularly, affirmations have the power to increase confidence, support motivation & change your thought patterns. They have the power to influence your subconscious mind to readjust your opinion of yourself.

In late 2022, I collaborated with my bestie Melissa & our company Soulea to make affirmations ever more accessible for everyone. Enter: The Body Deck!

The Body Deck 

The Body Deck consists of 77 Affirmation Cards focused on body neutrality,  mindfulness, & self-love.

We created them with the intention to empower all people!

These cards are one of a kind because they invite you to dig deeper & go beyond the body by tuning into your personal intuition, personal values, & sense of self. These cards strive to inspire you to deeply understand your character, the incredible gift you are to the world & how much value you bring.

Once you dive deeply into your sense of self, your personal worth can flourish in ways you simply never imagined possible—& while the cards do discuss body neutrality—the focus is on how you are more than just a body: you are a masterpiece, a soul & our bodies are the mere vessels to reaching & exceeding all we are capable of.

These affirmation cards are the perfect addition to your self-care routine, as you can pick a new one each day that delivers a heartfelt message to power your day or your week. They are perfect for when you are having a hard day or feeling a bit down on yourself but also as a way to STAY prepared & in control of your thoughts and confidence for lifes unpredictability.

These will lift your spirits & bring you back to centre & feel at home in your self.

What comes in the deck? 

  • One glossy card deck box
  • One instructions card
  • Digital download for phone screensavers of all the cards in the deck
  • 77 Individually designed affirmation cards featuring a hand-drawn back of card and boudoir photography on many cards
  • Cards are sized 3×5″ — the box is designed to be portable and travel-friendly

So, why not gift them to yourself after your shoot, or pass on the link to your loved one as a little *hint* to keep the post-boudoir shoot bliss flowin’?! 

For my fellow boudoir photographers reading, this is the ideal client gift for a few reasons!

  1. They are the only affirmation deck out there that praises the beauty of boudoir imagery. The cards are comprised of images I’ve taken over the years that celebrate diversity & feminine power!
  2. They are not branded with “Embodied Art Boudoir” (full transparency, the deck does mention one of the collaborators is a boudoir photographer) which means they make an incredibly thoughtful gift that isn’t overtly promoting the wrong studio ;).
  3. These cards will keep that post-shoot spark alive! Your client will enjoy being able to pick up a card to continue to work on their self-love, self-growth & self-confidence journey.
  4. As a post-shoot gift, this is a fantastic way to celebrate your studio & keep your client thinking of you every time they use it! Plus, the cards are an exceptional & memorable conversation starter with clients friends & family, which will all link back to you & your studio!

The Body Deck is available wholesale, please reach out to me to discuss this!

We’ve put our whole damn heart into these cards & we are thrilled with the outcome. We hope they will help you to heal your body image issues, allow you to connect to your morals, & cultivate self-compassion & confidence, as you grow in self-love.
