Accept who you are and revel in it. -Mitch Albom
‘Boudoir’ is an emotion evoking word. For some, the word makes you feel excited, sexy, and confident. For many others though, boudoir makes you feel nervous, apprehensive, and not so confident. Even if your initial reaction to the idea of doing a boudoir photo shoot is one that makes you feel hesitant, there are still many great reasons to consider it. Here are a few of the reasons why I love shooting boudoir photos so much.
You may be thinking, “Boudoir could never be for me!” I don’t believe that is true at all! If you feel this way, I would love to change your perception of yourself through these photos. Never think boudoir is something that has to wait until your hair grows out or you lose those 20 pounds.
Boudoir is all about capturing your beautiful personality and reflecting that individual on the outside. I know just the tricks to capture who you really are. Besides, as we age we tend to be a little more gracious with ourselves. Five years from now, you will likely look back and be glad you took that brave step and scheduled a boudoir shoot.
Everyone has a different level of comfort when it comes to showing some skin. You do not have to bare all to have some beautiful, tasteful boudoir images.
Lingerie often comes to mind first when someone thinks about boudoir, but this is not always the case. If you’re someone who doesn’t like to show as much skin, I’ll still produce head turning photos with simple, yet sexy items like an off the shoulder sweater or robe. I understand that sometimes, it’s more provocative when you leave a little to the imagination.
A good boudoir photographer is going to take just as much time to help you prepare for your session as he or she is taking your photos. You will discuss how to prepare your hair, face and body to maximize your beauty. We will discuss garments and/or lingerie that is perfect for your body type and share a Pinterest board for planning. Strategizing beforehand combined with my expertise of perfect angles and lighting helps me capture a beautiful work of art.
Your captured beauty combined with a little editing will create magazine quality images. I’ll make use of tricks like retouching and skin smoothing to ensure you never regret the time and hard work we put into your session.
Boudoir is one of the most unique photo sessions you could ever have. It’s truly something special you may only do once in a lifetime. When I have a boudoir session, it is my goal to tastefully and beautifully capture who you are in an intimate and vulnerable image at that exact moment in time. That’s why I promise to never schedule more than one boudoir session per day. This day is truly all about YOU!
You may wish to do a boudoir session for yourself or a significant other. These photos will continue to be a proud reminder of who you were at that time. When you give them as a gift to your significant other, it is a gift they will always cherish.
