What Happens in a Boudoir Photography Session?

About Us, Boudoir

Head to Google and do a quick search for the definition of boudoir photography. There, you’ll find something like this… “Boudoir photography is a photographic style featuring intimate, sensual, romantic, and sometimes erotic images of its subjects in a photographic studio, bedroom or private dressing room environment, primarily intended for the private enjoyment of the subject and their romantic partners.”

To us, however, boudoir photography goes much deeper than sensual or erotic images. It’s an experience of self-expression, empowerment, and a whole lot of fun.

Self-Expression

If you’ve never participated in a boudoir session, it might seem like your body takes center-stage – and that can be intimidating. Real boudoir photography, however, is 100% about who you are as a person and puts you and your story in the spotlight. When done correctly, boudoir photography allows you to step out and say, “This is who I am!”

Empowerment

Empowerment is the process of becoming stronger and more confident. Through Boudoir photography, you can see yourself as the rest of the world sees you – strong, beautiful, capable, and downright kick-ass. And, when you look at those photos and realize how flawless you are despite your perceived imperfections, you will have the courage to take on whatever comes your way.

Fun

Whether you’re doing a boudoir experience for yourself or someone else, boudoir photography should be fun. When you get in front of the camera, the people behind it should make you excited to be there. Unlike some images portray, boudoir photography isn’t all straight faces and sultry eyes. You should show your smile too! You should be able to let your guard down and enjoy your time. 

HOW DO WE DO IT?

We create an experience that allows you to express yourself, have fun, and leaves you feeling empowered by getting behind the camera and being our kind, quirky selves. We look past what you’re wearing and get to know you as a person – your likes and dislikes, what makes you smile, and what gives you confidence. Then, we use that information to help you feel as comfortable as possible in front of the camera.

Still, want to know more? Here is a rundown of what a typical boudoir session with us is like:

  1. You book a session.
  2. Via emails or coffee meet-ups, we spend time getting to know you and what you want out of your boudoir experience.
  3. We find the resources (aka location, props, etc.) to make it possible.
  4. We meet at the awesome location for your boudoir.
  5. We sit down and chat while we talk about our plan for the day.
  6. We put on some killer music (your choice – we won’t make you listen to anything too weird.)
  7. You prep. Hair, make-up, clothes. You choose it all.
  8. The cameras come out, and we give you direction and suggestions as you need it.
  9. You have more fun than you ever thought you could in front of a camera.
  10. A few weeks later, you receive a fantastic photo gallery with handpicked photographs that look too good to be true – but they aren’t! They are 100% you!
