What is Boudoir Photography?
When I say I am a portrait photographer, one of the first questions I am often asked is if I take boudoir portraits and, sometimes, in group conversations asked what is boudoir... so I'm here to tell you.
The term boudoir actually means bedroom or private space/room. Boudoir photography can be revealing as the person being photographed is comfortable with. Sometimes this means covering completely with a white sheet or wearing a men's button down... Other times clients want lingerie. Essentially, you wear what YOU are comfortable with.
Do I offer Boudoir Photography services? Shhhh... I do, but I never show and tell. If you are interested in boudoir portraits, I will never show your images. The only way they will be shown is if you decide to share them. The image below was taken for advertising and I still choose to keep client's privacy. I consider these to be such an intimate part of each woman's life and I would never want anyone to feel exposed, ever. So know, when you book with me... no-one will ever know unless it comes from you. This part of my photography business is operated by word-of-mouth referrals only. These services can be added to any portrait session or they can be booked on their own. If you'd like to see my boudoir portfolio, I do have permission from a few clients to share in person only to other women who would be interested in booking. You may also join our private VIP Facebook Group (women only) and post your images from our session there, or view images others have posted from their session. What is most important to me is if you decide to share- it is solely up to you. Additionally, any printed product will be printed by my favorite lab, in which an all female staff may be requested for your privacy. We will discuss your comfort level, wardrobe and any additional requests for your session prior to your appointment. If you'd like to be a part of the VIP Facebook Group, you must fill out the form here. I'll talk to you first and see if you are a good fit for the group, then send an invite to you through Facebook. Thank you for understanding that respecting each client's privacy is the main objective in having this group. It is for women to share their story, their experience with me and, if they so choose, their images. We are looking forward to welcoming you soon!
