W’s of Boudoir:


1.  WHO

Boudoir offers an escape from the mundane and everyday life into a place where maybe we only go in our heads...a kind of fairytale place (maybe the only place) that we feel like a sexy beast lol. Are you laughing at this concept? Yes, Yes, many of us find it humorous to think of ourselves as sexy or even beautiful. You ARE! The real question is do you feel it? That is where we come in! Boudoir photography is often done for significant others as gifts but ends up being such a ego boost for yourself! This is an experience tailored around feeling unique and beautiful and letting those feelings being expressed or seen for the first time in artistic expression. Don’t be fooled into thinking you need to be a model to have an incredible Boudoir Shoot.  Boudoir is for REAL life people...all shapes, all sizes, all sexes. Boudoir is for the bride to be who wants to gift the best groom’s gift ever :). Boudoir is for the survivor to feel liberated again. Boudoir is a couple looking to add a little spice to their relationship. Boudoir is for a personal jubilee! Boudoir is for YOU and is one of the best ways to bring out and capture a sexier side that is often lost in our busy lives!

So what is boudoir in 2018??  Professional Boudoir photography today is a medium for self-expression. Boudoir Photography sessions are a professional opportunity to express your love, your fears, and your vulnerability helping you conquer your inhibitions and see yourself in new ways. Beautiful...Glamouous...Sexy.  Boudoir concepts and ideas range and over the life our business we have seen just about every interpretation of boudoir. Of course there is the traditional lingerie, his favorite jersey, and vintage pin up looks accompanied with a red lip and cat eye. There is the simplicity of loose waves in your hair and just a plain white sheet. We have also seen costumes of ALL SORTS, golf clubs, roller skates, motorcycles and cars, caution tape, and camo you name it! How ever you want to express or dress that makes you feel good we are here to help! We work together with you on a vision for your shoot to make sure you have a great session and amazing final products!
