Boudoir Photography - What is it?

Pronounced bŏo dwăawr, the word comes from 18th century French and is translated as a woman's private bedroom or sitting room.

So guess what? It's been around forever. As a matter of fact, the master painters from the earlier centuries all used Boudoir settings for some of the great art work displayed in museums around the world today.

Who is Boudoir Photography For?

Primarily Woman, any woman, any size and shape can be photographed in an intimate setting to create classy images that are soft, romantic, sexy, and very sensual. Our main focus is to capture  you in the most flattering way by guiding you through the poses that compliment your body type. We'll show you in advance what we think will work and let you do the rest. This is all done with beautiful studio lighting in our new studio in a private setting with only our photographer, though you're welcome to invite someone for support.

Boudoir Photography Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How long does it take?

A. Sessions typically run 2.0 hrs.

Q. How much variety will there be in the photos?

A. We have 6 shooting stations at the studio so these are all not going to be bedroom shots. We suggest 3-4 outfit changes and to bring in a very formal dress like you are going out on the town. We want you to be very dressed and then you can dress down to desired looks. We capture images is many stages of dress. However, No frontal nudity is captured and any shots of this nature are implied shots with nothing from the front side showing. We use lighting and posing to create these popular looks.
