Habits of Highly Confident Women | Maryland Boudoir Photographer
Who doesn’t want to be more confident? With Bmore Boudoir I aim to create an empowering space for women to express themselves and feel as beautiful as they are! That’s why today I’m talking about habits of highly confident women, and how you (and I!) can take some steps to be even more confident in our day to day lives
Confident Women Have Positive Attitudes
Yes! Confident women know that positive attitudes make for positive outcomes. I try so hard to do this in my own life. I try and see the best in people and situations. I’m always enjoying my day and my life as much as I can. It’s so much easier because I have my dream job, but some days it’s definitely effort!

Confident Women Set Goals
It is so much easier to go confidently in the direction of your dreams when you know what those dreams actually are. Seems simple, but it’s definitely tough. I recommend setting some time aside when you can really focus and spend some time thinking, writing, and vision boarding. That’s what I did, way back when when I was just a girl with a discount camera and a big dream!
Good goals are achievable and have a time limit. If you want to be a professional photographer but have no idea where to start, a good starting goal is research and invest in a camera. Then set the goal of creating a portfolio. Baby steps until you have the business you’ve always dreamed of.
Confident Women Say Yes to What They Want - And Only That
Once you’ve set some goals, and you’re out there attracting lovely experiences by having positive thoughts, a bunch of opportunities will show up. How do you know which ones to take? In order to say yes to something, you have to say no to something else. Knowing what you’re working towards makes this easier I think.
If you’re an over-committer looking to cut back, maybe make an actual list of things that line up with your goals and things that don’t to carry around in your purse or on your phone. “I’d love to but I have to check my calendar,” is totally an acceptable response!
Confident Women Pose With Confidence
Body language is a big thing. Even if you don’t feel overly confident, they’ve done studies that doing the “Wonder Woman” pose - standing with both hands on your hips for 30 seconds actually makes you feel more confident. Isn’t that crazy? It’s fabulous that something so small can completely turn your attitude around. Of course, I also always recommend a boudoir session to help you feel more confident posing!
