Boudoir

Boudoir is for EVERY woman!

You don’t need to be a perfect size 4 to have a fun and empowering session. This type of shoot is for the everyday woman who wants to fee beautiful in her own skin and in her own unique way. This means we design the session for YOUR personality. You don’t even have to wear traditional lingerie. There are MANY things you can wear for your boudoir session to make you feel and look beautiful. Check out my portfolio for examples of how different each boudoir session can be.

The point of a Boudoir session is to have a fun and feel empowered. You will feel confident about the way you look and have beautiful images of yourself to keep or give to a lucky someone special. 

FAQ’S

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR FOR MY BOUDOIR SESSION?

In your pre-consultation we will go over wardrobe ideas. There are actually more options than you think and it will be fun to bring our your personality through your wardrobe for a customized Boudoir session. If still in doubt just bring it all. We can play around with your outfits to come up with some different looks. Also, bring a pair of sexy heels to make your legs look a mile long and some accessories. 

Putting together a personal Boudoir Pinterest board is a great way to find wardrobe ideas, figure out the look you want, and just pin beautiful imagery. Check out my Pinterest pages for some more clothing ideas...

*Tip: If you’re planning a Boudoir Party with your friends then schedule an afternoon to go lingerie shopping together!

 

WHAT ABOUT HAIR & MAKEUP?

Hair and makeup is included in your full Boudoir session. It will be the ultimate pampering experience. Remember, these are beauty shots so you’ll want your hair and make up to match the look of your lingerie, which is going to be sexy and fabulous, and a professional knows exactly how to achieve this.

*Tip: False eyelashes and a siren red lipstick will amp up your sexiness no matter what you are wearing

I’M SHY AND VERY BODY CONSCIOUS – IS BOUDOIR REALLY FOR ME?

Boudoir is for every woman. You don’t need to be out-going, overtly sexy, or a size 2 model to have a successful boudoir session. Most women come in feeling a little nervous, but relax after the first ten minutes of shooting. It happens every time. Once you have your hair and makeup professionally applied and you are in your first outfit you will be ready to go. I will guide you every step of the way and demonstrate all the poses first. Then all you need to do is mirror me right back. It’s very easy and promise to make you look fabulous by highlighting your best assets. We will go into more detail of what to expect from the beginning to the end during your consultation so don’t worry about not knowing what to do.

WHO WILL BE PRESENT FOR MY SHOOT?

During the actual Boudoir shoot it will only be you and I. You could bring someone along but make sure they are going to be 100% support and can offer only positive encouragement.

WILL MY IMAGES BE USED ON YOUR WEBSITE OR BLOG?

No. Your images will not appear on my website or blog unless I get your permission first. My first and foremost concern is your privacy.

WHAT DO PEOPLE USUALLY DO WITH THEIR BOUDOIR IMAGES?

Albums! Albums are the most popular choice for boudoir sessions, especially if you are doing this to give as a gift for someone else. Another favorite is digital images or fine art prints. But I STRONGLY urge you to get your beautiful images off of the computer. My work will be your art!
