I think we all remember the first time, as little girls, when we tried on high heels. We stumbled like baby giraffes, trying to emulate the way we saw our mothers walk. And later, as teens, it was runway models we had in mind as we slipped on strappy stilettos.
And, of course, there is a reason for this. When we saw our mothers walk in high heels, we admired her stature and her grace as our first role models. And then super models became our idols with their smirking, pouty lips and quick and confident strut.
Ever since we were dreamy young women, heels have been a symbol of power and adulthood. And for good reason! We now know that when we put on high heels, they lift us above our normal height; in the workplace they lift us above men and above the glass ceiling; and when we down the street (whether it be to the office or to the club) the smart noise the heels make against the concrete assures of our womanly strength. When we wear a pair of heels, we keep our head high and our hopes higher. We are the beautiful and accomplished women who our mothers wanted us to be; and we are equal (or better than) the models we once revered.
Truly, high heels have so many proven benefits. Yes, they add height. But they also improve our posture, making us throw our shoulders back and keep our head up — a proven powerhouse stance. And, in terms of sex appeal, heels lengthen our legs and push up our cute booty. No wonder models looked so good walking down that runway! Their legs looked sky-high, their behinds looks perfectly perky, and they looked down from a great height with their hooded eyes at the lowly audience. Impossible to resist.
You know you are impossible to resist in high heels! And can you imagine how super sexy you would be in a steamy boudoir photoshoot, with just some lingerie and strappy heels on? No need to imagine any longer, friends! As the #1 boudoir photography studio in Los Angeles and Las Vegas, The Boudoir Cafe encourages all of our clients to wear heels during their photoshoot. The Boudoir Cafe believes (and it’s true!) that there is something unbelievably enchanting about a boudoir photograph in which a woman in lace is standing, sitting or lying down with her long legs elongated and her behind round and perky with a pair of high heels. And your face in a Boudoir Cafe boudoir shoot as you do this shows that you know how good you look with those heels on. Head to heeled-toe, you give off a total come-hither vibe.
At The Boudoir Cafe, we even have heels we can provide for you, if you don’t ave any ones of your own that you think will foot the bill! Because we are one of the most famous boudoir photographers in the Los Angeles and Las Vegas area, we have the great honor of being the owners of a high-heel collection (see pics in this post!!) that you are completely welcome to choose from at the time of your shoot as a part of your pampering hair and makeup session. Because, really, what’s a queen without some high heels? You should be able to sit on your thrown higher than everyone, and you should be able to look down on everyone not as gorgeous as you (the same way those models did), and you should rule with grace and confidence (the same way your mother did).
After all, it was the great and fabulous Marilyn Monroe who said, “I don’t know who invented high heels. But whoever he was, all women owe him a lot!”
We sure do!!
