Embarrassing Boudoir Questions

It sucks when you're in a situation where you have a ton of questions you feel like you can't ask because it will make you look stupid. I definitely felt that way preparing for my first brazilian wax. I had so many questions-lots of them embarrassing-what if I'm on my period? How long does the hair need to be? How long is too long? The LAST thing I wanted was to butterfly open for the technician only for her to arch an eyebrow disdainfully dismiss me. I mean can you imagine!?!?  Luckily, I'm have a fairly high embarrassment threshold-so I always just risk it and ask anyway.

In fact since September 2016, I have camped out in the "Hi, my name is Meagan and I have no idea what I'm doing" camp. It's how I introduce myself nowadays. My husband and I have been building a house for the past year. Our first home purchase. Yes, it is true what they say...it is a taxing, terrible process that will suck your soul dry and make your eyes bleed. Ok...maybe it hasn't been *that*  bad. But it's close.

Pretty much every conversation involves some form of me asking stupid questions that have obvious answers to all other parties involved. How many CFM's does that kitchen hood have?? Why is that important? Any ideas...???  ME NEITHER! But I embrace the awkward and ask anyway. Just be glad you don't have to hear my conversations with my lender...

I know, I know. It'll all be worth it when it's over. I mean, we won't have to get dressed to take our dog out anymore because we'll have a yard. We will have actual doors instead of our open loft so if the cats decide to lose their damn minds at 3AM, we can shut the door! The beauty of a closed door has never meant so much. We'll also have closets AND a garage-meaning under our bed will no longer have to house both the wrapping paper and Matt's car tools.

I say all of this to let you know that it is completely normal to have questions about your boudoir sessions-I expect it actually. You will have LOTS and some of them may be sensitive or embarrassing. Only they totally aren't because I promise-I PROMISE-I've heard them before. I also really really REALLY want you to feel as comfortable as humanly possible when you arrive at the studio. Seriously. It's so important to me that I wrote the sentence with three "really's" and bold font with caps-lock. If you're concerned or even just curious as you prep for your boudoir session, adopt the Meagan O principle and ask away!

Also, we close on September 15th. Pray for us.
