I always encourage ladies of all ages, sizes, shapes and lifestyles to do a boudoir session. I truly believe that every woman is beautiful in her own right, and boudoir photography is the perfect way to draw that beauty out and emphasise it!
The most common misconception people have about boudoir photography is that it’s only for women with a certain “look”; long legs, a perfect hourglass figure, young features and a petite size. This couldn’t be further from the truth. EVERYONE can do a boudoir session!
Boudoir photography is a celebration of everything that is womanly, and women often forget that they are sensual beings as they become increasingly busier with careers or motherhood.
I’m a big fan of the natural, understated “girl next door” look for boudoir sessions, and I always aim for classy, natural and captivating images! I have a degree in photography and almost 10 years of experience, as well as being an AIPP accredited professional photographer, which means you can rest assured that you are getting a verified professional service. I work with my favourite make-up artists to give my clients a professional makeover for their session, and in addition to photographing the lovely ladies I help them with posing and direction for the most flattering and stunning looks possible!
Often the women I work with are nervous beforehand, which is totally natural – you are after all getting in your lingerie in front of a stranger! – and doing a boudoir shoot is completely out of their comfort zone. Ladies, I applaud you all for challenging yourselves and taking the plunge, because it’s definitely worth it! Everyone who walks into the studio nervous walks away having had a fun and empowering experience, and they get an amazing collection of sexy photos to show for it!
Boudoir photography is great for brides-to-be and girlfriends who want to surprise their partners with a beautiful collection of photos, but it is also for everyone else, “just because”. I cannot express enough how much I love it when people are overwhelmed and surprised by how stunning they look in the photos, and that is what makes boudoir photography my favourite thing to do!
