Am I too old for a boudoir portrait session?
There is no such thing! I find that the more life experience a woman has, the more she learns to celebrate the life she has and the body she has. Can you still do a boudoir photo shoot in your 60’s? Absolutely!
A new definition of beauty
I love when a woman starts to recognize beauty that comes from within. She pays less attention to her perceived flaws. Her wrinkles remind her of all the time she has spent smiling. Her stretch marks remind her of the beautiful children she has birthed and raised. And now it’s time to take some time for herself to feel alive again.
Up for anything!
I LOVED working with the lovely Ms. J. She was so spunky and up for anything. At age 63, and being a breast cancer survivor, Ms. J threw caution to the wind and she absolutely rocked her boudoir shoot!
Ms. J has 5 sisters and she said she’s the tame one of the bunch. I NEED them to come in for a sister’s shoot because that would just be a blast.
This is what Ms. J said about her experience
“After spending a long time fighting breast cancer, I wanted to feel alive again. I wanted to feel beautiful – inside and out. I was sure I was not photogenic, but hey, I would give it a try. Wow! What a surprise! Rayleigh has been blessed with an amazing ability to find your inside beauty and reflect it on your outside.
The shoot itself was special. Stephanie did a super awesome job on my makeup and hair; and Rayleigh made me feel as if I was in my own home. She is so focused on what and how to look your best, that there is absolutely no awkwardness to it at all.“
Worth a lifetime of vacations
“Rayleigh is not only professional, but quite personable. In a word, the shoot was just fun; and the final product was simply beautiful. She found my smile and my inner beauty, something I had not seen in a very long time. And I didn’t even know I looked that good.
It’s amazing as women we will spend money on our partners, on our kids, on our pets, on vacations, on anything but ourselves. My experience with Rayleigh was worth a lifetime of vacations; and I have the photos to remember it by. I would highly recommend that every woman invest in this special gift of Photography by Rayleigh in Portland, Oregon.”–Ms. J
What to wear
Ms. J felt comfortable wearing a more conservative wardrobe for her shoot. The robes she chose looked so feminine and beautiful. They were a great choice.
She also brought a classic little black dress, which was great because we got some wonderful photos that she can share with her grandchildren.
A boudoir photo shoot in your 60’s
No matter your age, a boudoir shoot can be a wonderful, life changing experience. I’m so glad that Ms. J took some time for herself to get pampered and celebrate the beautiful woman that she is.
And just for the fun of it, here are 60 more ideas from Viva Fifty for how to celebrate being in your 60’s.
