What is Boudoir?

Read More

Boudoir photography is sensual images of women that capture a woman’s confidence and sexuality. You can wear as much or as little as you are comfortable with. It's an opportunity for women to have a chance to celebrate who they are and what makes them beautiful. 

The word boudoir does not mean anything that has to do with photography, which is why I find myself explaining frequently. The word “boudoir” literally means a woman’s bedroom, dressing room, or sitting room. It is a private place for women only, which because of its secrecy holds a mysterious air and intimacy for the men who are not allowed. The term comes from the French word Bouder, which means to be sultry or sulky. This seems to capture the feeling of the boudoir images of today. 

When photographing my clients, I strive to capture the essence of a woman’s beauty, confidence, and sexuality in my images. For some women, their sexuality is out there, bold, and powerful, while with other women it’s soft and understated. Most women have a little bit of both, so I capture both sides of that. For this reason, I ask many questions of my clients prior to the shoot, and try to get to know them on a personal level.

Many women choose to take boudoir pictures for their significant others for wedding, anniversary, or birthday gifts. However some women just want to have pictures taken for themselves. But no matter the reason behind boudoir, it is a very intimate experience and I've seen the amazing things it can do for clients.

STILL HAVE QUESTIONS?

Will these images be shown to anyone?
  Not unless you allow it! I will never show your images to anyone, and am very discrete. However, if you would like to give me permission, I will use them on my website and for other advertising purposes. I will never use your images unless you have given me direct and explicit permission. All of the women shown on this site have given me permission to use their images.

Do I have to get naked?
  No way! We will take pictures in a state in which you are comfortable. You can be just as sexy in a formal dress, as in lingerie. I take tasteful and classy pictures, so you do not have to be any more exposed than you want to be. However, I also love to do nudes and implied nudes.

What does implied-nude mean?
  Implied nude means that you look nude, but can’t see anything. This is achieved by placing hands, legs, sheets, etc in strategic ways.

Can someone come to the shoot with me?
  Yes! Go ahead and bring someone along if it will make you feel more comfortable. Most of the time it is best if you bring a friend, not a significant other. I want you to be comfortable, because then your true beauty can bloom. Please let me know ahead of time if you plan on bringing a guest to your session.

What should I wear? 
  Do I need to bring anything? Lingerie is always a great option, but anything sensual will work. Just a simple bra and underwear can be just as sexy and stunning as expensive lingerie. Even a chiffon robe or simple cardigan can be absolutely beautiful. Helping ladies pick their outfits is one of my favorite things, so just ask me if you're wondering about something! 

What kind of products can I get with these pictures?
  All of my usual products are an option, but most of my albums include a press-printed book. This is a great option because it is a bit more subtle and a great keepsake for yourself or a significant other! Prints and a disk are also available for purchase. 

Can I have my hair/make-up done? 
  YES!! Most of my packages come with hair and make-up! It's an opportunity to pamper yourself and not have to worry about doing it yourself before the session; it makes a huge difference! I work with amazing make-up artists and hair stylists, who will make sure that you look camera ready!

Do you airbrush the images? 
  Yes and no. I always clean up blemishes, and minor skin imperfections, but you are beautiful just as you are, and I want to show that off too!    

So how does this whole thing work? 
  Once you've decided that you want to do a boudoir session (yay!) and we book a date, I do require a $100 deposit!! Until you're shoot I'll still be in contact to answer questions, help pick outfits, and calm nerves. The day of your session you'll come into the studio, you’ll get your hair and make-up done, and we'll take a few minutes to make a game plan. Then we photograph your beautiful self! After your session, I'll upload your images on a secure gallery and so you can choose your images.  Once you've done that, I'll design your book and put it up on your gallery for your approval. I'll order, you'll pick up, and we're done!
