Boudoir photography originates from the French term “boudoir” meaning a woman’s bedroom or private sitting room, which is exactly what we recreate for you in our studio setting. So essentially it is sexy provocative photography of a woman in a bedroom setting. A boudoir session would feature you in a classy rich romantic setting, using a variety of props and various sexy lingerie outfits.
Who books a Boudoir Session?
Boudoir photography sessions are for women who wish to capture their personal beauty and create stunning sexy and proactive images for themselves, or for their loved one.
Many of our clients just want to celebrate their sexiness in stunning images, and capture that look for posterity, and some have imagined and fantasized about being a “Playboy” model and want to have that experience. We are here to help make that dream a reality.
Boudoir photography makes the perfect romantic gift for your loved one to share during special occasions such as weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, and of course Valentine’s Day.
How old must I be?
You must be 18 years of age and be able to show proof of ID prior to your Photoshoot in order to do a Boudoir Photoshoot..
I am concerned about privacy. Who will photograph my session and be present during the shoot?
To make your session a comfortable and great experience we offer the choice of either a male or female photographers. Our photographers, Danny, Brian and Victoria have similar yet slightly varying photography styles and will guide you in posing throughout your session. Present during your session will be your photographer of choice and a makeup artist / hairstylist if ordered. If you want, you are welcome to bring a fun, outgoing girlfriend to assist during the shoot – somebody whom you have fun with when you party – someone who brings the best out of you, and doesn’t judge you.
I am concerned with privacy. How secure are my photos? Who will see my boudoir photographs?
We respect your privacy and we handle you photographs with the utmost care and respect. Your privacy is guaranteed. Apart from the photographer and assistants on set (if any) no-one else will see your images without your consent. Your images will not be posted anywhere without your express written consent. We are very honored and appreciative of our many clients who have given us permission to be featured on our website and in our portfolio.
How do I prepare for my session?
Get a good night sleep before your boudoir photography shoot. Do not wear any tight fitting clothing when you arrive for your shoot. Any elastics, bra straps, belts, ect will leave crimp marks on your skin. Arrive in a loose fitting gown or robe or anything that will not leave crimp marks in your skin. Avoid eating greasy foods and drink lots of water in the 24 hours prior to the shoot.
What makeup do you recommend for a boudoir photography session?
We recommend that you use our professional makeup artists as they really understand how to apply makeup specifically to get he best out of you in your photos. If you have hired the makeup artist, please arrive with a freshly washed face. If you are doing your own makeup, apply your makeup as if you are going out to party at night – a touch more pronounced than normal. Do your hair before you leave for the shoot.
What wardrobe should I bring to a boudoir photography session?
We suggest a minimum of 5 outfits, but actually prefer that you bring too much rather than too little. We will mix and match from your selection to create the perfect stylized shot. We recommend that you bring a variety of items such as sexy bra and panty sets, sexy sleep wear, thigh high stocking, bikinis, cocktail dresses, mini skirts, low-rise jeans, cute tops, and plenty of fun jewelry and accessories. We do have some clothing attire and accessories in our prop room, that you may use during your shoot, but you should bring the majority of your outfits. Personalize your shoot and get creative! Bring your boyfriend/ husband’s favorite sports shirt, work shirt & tie, or surprise him with that sexy nurse outfit he loves on you! Have all of your outfits clean, ironed, and packed so you’re ready to go. Arrive with your wardrobe in a roll-aboard suitcase and on hangers – we have a clothes rack and wardrobe area for you.
What is Artistic Nude Photography?
Artistic nude photography emphasizes the beauty of the body and its form. These fine art images are typically outputted in high contrast black and white images and are created with dramatic lighting and careful attention to detail, painting the female physique with carefully placed lights accentuating the curve and flow of the female form.
What if I want both Boudoir and Artistic Nudes?
You are in total control of your photoshoot. Once you hire us we shoot you, as you wish, in your allotted time. We do not put a limit on outfit changes or the style of photography you wish to explore. You may choose to do a mix of boudoir and artistic nude photography during a single session.
What is Glamour Photography?
Glamour photography is a general term that represents glamorous and sexy images of the female, and puts all the focus on the beautiful model. Glamour photography highlights the model’s natural features creating soft, alluring, glamorous and sexy images. Glamour photography can encompass clothed, lingerie, bikini, topless and nude images.
What is the difference between glamour and fashion photography?
In fashion photography, the female is chosen to sell the wardrobe. The model is the prop for the garments that are to be featured. In glamour photography it is exactly the reverse. In glamour photography the wardrobe is chosen to “sell” the subject, the female model, and to accentuate her assets and limit her weaknesses.
Are there any limits on what you shoot?
We will photograph lingerie, implied nude, semi- nude, and nude. Our style and photography is very beautiful and tasteful. We will shoot up to “playboy” style photography. We abhor exploitational imagery of any form, and we do not shoot explicit or adult content. We worship and adore the female form and we seek to flatter and complement the female form at every opportunity, providing you, our client, with images that you will treasure for life and show with pride.
I would love to be photographed in my own bedroom. Can you photograph me in my own house / bedroom / boudoir setting?
Yes we can, with pleasure. We do have an additional charge for this as we need to transport and spend time setting up and our lighting in your home, and knock it down at the end of the shoot. The fee will depend on the distance travelled and the additional time required.
Will you photograph men in a boudoir setting?
Yes, we enjoy working with and photographing both men and women, straight and gay.
Will you photograph couples in a boudoir setting?
Yes, we enjoy working with both straight and gay couples. We are romantics at heart and love to create images that show romance and love.
I have wanted to do this for so long, but I am so very nervous…
Absolutely everyone doing a boudoir photography session feels a little nervous, and yet excited prior to their photoshoot. It will take about 15 to 20 minutes for you to warm up in the beginning and before you know it you will be having a blast! By the end of the session we always hear from our clients “It was so easy and I had so much fun doing it! I wished I had done this years ago!”
But I don’t have a model’s body and I have obvious flaws…
First of all, none of the people on our website look like that in real life. The images you see are a combination of the client’s looks and our artistic and creative skills.
You don’t need the “perfect body” to look absolutely amazing in your photographs. The photographer’s job is to bring out your best features, whether it’s your eyes, cute smile, or your beautiful long legs, great body, and pose you just the right way. We are skilled at artfully draping the satin sheets, and carefully choosing the right wardrobe to complement your look.
Additionally we carefully place and adjust our studio lights to highlight your assets and diminish your weaknesses. And once these stunningly created images are captured, in our editing studio we take great care to enhance the overall image using tasteful and creative retouching and air brushing of your images, and ultimately you are assured of looking way more stunning in your images than you had ever imagined. Your partner will love this new sexy side of you!
I’m not a model and don’t know how to pose…
Our photographers will work with you advising you on how to move and posing you to accentuate your best features. It always helps to tear out images that you like or would like to rep-create. We suggest practicing in the mirror and browsing through some of your favorite magazines to help you prepare. Searching the internet and bringing in magazine tear sheets will help us get a feel for the style and type of photography that you like best. We will do our best to recreate the images that you like.
How long does it take to get my photos once we have completed the shoot?
It will take us about 7 to 10 business days to professionally retouch you images and have them ready for you on CD.
