I met Sara a few years ago when I had first moved to St. Louis. I photographed a boudoir session for her at the time. A few months ago, she emailed me to book a birthday boudoir session to embrace her body and remind herself that she can feel sexy at any age.
How awesome is that?
I seriously love the reasons you ladies book boudoir sessions, from owning your sexy, to embracing your body after a major life change.
And brides, even if the boudoir session is for a wedding gift, let’s be honest and say it’s also for you and a way to boost your confidence before one of the biggest days of your life.
After her session, Sara posted this to Instagram.
“I did this photoshoot on my birthday last month. It was kind of a reminder to myself that you can still be sexy at any age. Coincidently, I received the images today which happens to be my son’s sixteenth birthday. Sixteen years ago today I became a mom. I’ve never quite fit into that typical ‘mom mold,’ but I’ve learned, like in the game of Tetris, that when you try to “fit in” you end up disappearing. Life is short and we weren’t created to be average, so don’t be afraid to stand out ?”
So, today, I want to talk about 3 ways to feel sexy at any age, from your 20’s to your 70’s because age really is just a number.
P.S. Follow Sara’s Instagram. She and her son have dance off’s and it’s the cutest thing ever.
1. Attitude and confidence in your inner self
Attitude and confidence in your inner self can make someone sexy at any age.
Love the life you’ve created. You’ve worked hard to get where you are, and you deserve to be proud of the work you’ve put in.

2. Embrace your body
It doesn’t matter where you are in life, you’ve been through something major and your body can tell that story. It’s important to realize you’re sexy at any age, just the way you are.
Maybe there are stretch marks because of the pregnancy that created your beautiful children.
Maybe your abs are rocking right now because you are on a fitness journey towards a fitness competition.
Maybe you’re a bit bigger than you were because you’ve had some major life changes.
No matter what, love your body. It allows you to live the life you love with the people you love. Flaunt those stretch marks because they help tell your story!
3. A boudoir session helps you feel sexy at any age.
And last but not least, a boudoir session can SHOW you how beautiful you are. It helps you feel sexy at any age by showing you what someone else sees in you!
“I’m too old for a boudoir session.” I’m here to tell ya, you’re never too old to feel sexy.
Life is so busy, and it’s so important to slow down and take the time to remember you are beautiful in this moment of your journey through life.
25 is not the ONLY time you are(were) sexy in life. You are sexy at any age.
I’m thankful Sara came in when she did.
I’m 33 now. 33 is hard. I’ll put what I think is such a cute outfit together, then look in the mirror and think to myself, “my shorts are too short and I’m way too old to be wearing a crop top.” Neither is true. I can wear what I feel beautiful and comfortable in.
Sara reminded me that age is just a number and we need to embrace the stage of life we’re in.
So thanks Sara. You taught me a lot that day.
