BOUDOIR... The good, the bad, and the beautiful.

March 24, 2014


Boudoir photography is a collection of tasteful, classy, intimate photos of a woman, typically given to a loved one such as a spouse.  Doing a boudoir session is empowering and will surely boost your confidence. A beautiful experience, you'll never regret doing. So, I promised the good... and the bad... Here you go. 

Lets start with the "bad".  Ok, its not really bad... as much as it is mis-understood.  How come we can watch a nationally televised event, on primetime tv, with women walking down a runway in underwear and wings.... Yet, when we talk about doing a boudoir session, we whisper to our girlfriend as if we're talking about something really dirty. Come on girls, its not that bad! Its beautiful! Boudoir photography is not degrading women in media, it is far from it. So the bad? well its simply that it can be misunderstood, or classified wrong. 
The good? Well of course there's plenty!
There is absolutely nothing to be ashamed of. Wanting to look beautiful and sexy on camera is a positive, confident experience.  We look at magazines, billboards, and tv commercials everyday that objectify women in the media... Yet these photos are taken not for public display, but for a woman to share with her loved one. 
Dont worry, I'm the only one in the room with you. And your images are safe, private, and secure. The photos showcased on my website were just a few sessions from women who loved their session so much, they wanted to allow their photos for public use so that other women would be encouraged to try it too. 
Everyone is nervous and no one is a supermodel! A perfect boudoir session candidate is just like you - perfect in your own way. So body shapes, no matter what size, look amazing when they are photographed by a professional who is an expert in posing. And to be truthfully honest... curves look amazing on camera when photographed from the right angles and lighting! 
Women of all sizes, shapes, and careers can do a boudoir session! Mothers, single women, you name it! 
Your session is shaped by you. It can be as clothed or non-clothed as you wish.
