“I like the idea of being whoever I want to be.”
Boudoir photography allows me to capture an intimate portrait that tells a story or shows emotion. I want to help other women (and men) to celebrate their uniqueness and to show you how wonderful and amazing you are.
When you mention boudoir photography to anyone they immediately think lingerie or even glamour photography. My boudoir photoshoots are a little different. I create classy and elegant fine art boudoir images which reflect your personality. Yes you will probably be wearing lingerie but this is not the focus of the shoot – the focus is you and your personality and sensuality.
As a female photographer as well this often helps my clients feel much more comfortable being partially clothed. The entire photo session turns into a fun and exciting experience.
Who does a boudoir photoshoot?
Well my clients come from every walk of life and they usually want to do a boudoir shoot for a variety of reasons…
I photograph a number of brides to be who want a grooms gift for their prospective husbands. These shoots may sometimes contain some element of the wedding itself such as the client using her veil, wedding lingerie and shoes.
Women also book boudoir photography to celebrate a life milestone such as turning 40, 50 or even 60 and 70. Or even to celebrate being single.
I also often get asked to shoot boudoir photography for those who have some self esteem issues or to improve confidence after weight loss (or before weight loss), after surgery or even after having children or going through a divorce.
You can see that I photograph a wide range of women.
But it’s not just women who can enjoy a boudoir photoshoot, we do also cater for men as they too can have body confidence issues. Plus, I also do fun and sensual couples boudoir photoshoots. Take a look at my blog post on couples boudoir for more information.
Posing and Styling a Boudoir Photoshoot
Usually, most of my boudoir photoshoots take place at my studio just outside Milton Keynes in Newport Pagnell. However, you may prefer to actually have the photoshoot in your own home or even a hotel room that you might have booked. I want you to feel comfortable in your surroundings so if that is your own bedroom and bathroom then that is where we can shoot.
Our pre-shoot consultation which we have after you book looks at some of the clothing ideas that you might want to try as everyone often asks what do they wear or bring to a boudoir photoshoot. In fact, I have created a prep guide which I do send out to you to, plus take a look at our blog post which gives you clothing and styling ideas.
The photoshoot itself will always be fun and relaxing (though you may feel that you have done a workout afterward), take a look at our testimonials page to see what women like you have also said.
