Gentlemen, you’re not alone. It is time to take care of yourself and treat yourself to an incredible experience that will help boost self esteem while also celebrating all the emotions that make you human. From vulnerable and sensitive to confident and desirable. Boudoir sessions are for men too, and they can be about so much more than photos of your abs – they are about finding self compassion, feeling safe to be intimate and embracing self acceptance. Seeing yourself through someone’s else’s eyes can be tough. It is different from seeing yourself in the mirror or in a candid snapshot that someone tags you in.
Boudoir helps with self-acceptance because it asks us to look at ourselves objectively without any preconceived notions about being perfect.
You might be surprised to find out that male boudoir photography is not just for women. In fact, it’s been a growing trend in the past few years and many men are seeking this experience. Boudoir for men, like boudoir for women, can help you get more confident about yourself by viewing your body with compassion.
There are plenty of men out there who have these same concerns, self-conscious about how they look to others, comparing themselves to what they used to look like or think they should look like. This is why Modern Muse was created – so you can trade the lens of self critique for one of self compassion.
Your self-worth is not based on the number of likes you get on a photo or how many followers you have. It’s about feeling good and happy with who you are, no matter what others think. To make sure that your body confidence reaches its fullest potential, take some time for yourself to relax every day – even if it means just sitting down for five minutes after work and doing nothing but breathing deeply. In addition to caring for our physical bodies, we can also be mindful of our mental health so we can focus on appreciating the body we live in now. Sounds like something you might need right now?
