What is Boudoir Photography?

Breaking down the meaning of boudoir Photography

Boudoir photography is a photography session where you wear alluring outfits, lingerie, dresses, or even go scantily clad & get your photographs taken.  The photographer & the model will work together to create beautiful, sexy, confident images of yourself.

The Wikipedia definition is: “Boudoir photography, or sensual photography, is a photographic style featuring intimate, sensual, romantic & 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 his or her romantic partners.”

We think this definition misses the main point of a Boudoir photo session & definitely forgets about the impact on OURSELVES that a Boudoir photo session can have. Only you can explain precisely what having a boudoir session means to you at the end of the day.

Why is it defined as such?

Just because women are not defined by having a romantic partner, the images created during a Boudoir photo session do not automatically involve our potential partner.

Here is the thing: most women struggle with their body image. Not with all the same complaints (too small, too big, too long, too short, cellulite, the shape of the nose, etc.), but the list is endless. No matter how their partner, friends, or family may see their imperfections as what makes them who they are.

The bottom line is, every woman is their own worst critic & picks on something about themselves regardless of how beautiful they are inside and out.

What's the purpose of a boudoir session?

Boudoir Photography is not only about YOU (& body positivity), but it’s also about empowerment and loving the skin that you’re in.

The “gorgeous, glamorous & confident YOU.”
Do you remember or even know that person?
Maybe not.  Boudoir Photography can help you reconnect with the person that you no longer remember, or that you feel as though you’ve lost.

It will help you see yourself as you really are, as the people who love you see you.

It is about you & your body.
It’s about the image you have of yourself.
It’s about self-confidence & getting out of your comfort zone.
It’s about celebrating yourself just the way you are.
It’s about trust & a « let-it-go » attitude.
It’s about empowering & pride.
It’s a unique gift to yourself.
It can be a ton of fun. Trust me!

Our goal is to provide an experience that will leave you feeling fantastic and more empowered to push past the features that made you who you are today.
