Boudoir photography, the art of photographing women in lingerie or nude, may seem like something reserved only for celebrities and famous models, but that’s not true at all. As a professional service, from hair and makeup to step-by-step posing instruction, boudoir photography has become something that anyone can do to feel empowered and sexy. Let’s take a look at how you can get started with your own boudoir session and why it’s just as powerful an expression of self-love as it is a gift to your significant other.
What Is Boudoir Photography?
Boudoir photography is a type of portrait photography designed to capture, in a fashion or glamourous way, images of a person who wishes to portray their sensuality and sexuality. Boudoir photographs are typically a mix of full-body shots and close-ups and may include nudity, by request.
Who Should Consider Getting It Done?
You don't need an excuse to spice things up with sexy photos. That’s right: Boudoir photography isn’t just for brides-to-be! If you have a special event coming up—like a birthday or anniversary—and want to give your significant other something different, boudoir photos are an excellent gift idea. It's also a power move! Remind YOURSELF that you can bring the sexy whenever you please. See yourself through eyes that are not your own. Feel confident knowing that you can "bring it" whenever you choose.
What To Expect During An Intimate Photoshoot
A lot of ladies are intimidated by boudoir photography. There’s no reason to be, though! During an intimate photoshoot, you should expect nothing but fun and sensuality. You’ll have an opportunity to feel empowered while doing something daringly sexy. Whether or not you choose to share your images with anyone else is entirely up to you. That’s what makes it so special: it’s all about YOU.
