What is boudoir photography?

Let me explain!

Boudoir photography has been an artform since the invention of cameras. Still, there’s a bit of confusion surrounding the topic, so I wanted to take a second to dispel some myths and tell you exactly what boudoir photography is. In short: it’s a series of tasteful, artful sensual images — usually of a woman, but sometimes of a couple or even a man.

Different forms of boudoir photography exist both in terms of style and approach. As is the case with any photography, it’s important to seek a photographer whose style matches with your personal aesthetic. For example, some specialise is high contrast black and whites, others prefer a moody editing style, and some take a bright light and colour-dense approach.

Most boudoir photographers leave it to the client to decide how much skin is exposed during the session. Some clients are okay baring all, and the images are shot in a way that’s creative, classy, and genuinely artful. Other clients prefer to do a lingerie session which can be just as provocative and sensual. Others yet prefer to go a flirty, less exposed route — maybe they wear an oversized sweater, a sport’s jersey, or their partner’s business shirt.

But what is boudoir really ABOUT? It’s not just pretty pictures, it’s a whole experience of going out of your comfort zone and doing something daring and different. It’s about rediscovering confidence and feeling empowered! It’s about letting go of self criticism and and embracing your body with all its flaws.

Boudoir photography is about so much more than the amazing photos you’re left with after the session, and creating a customised experience with your photographer is part of the fun! ❤️
