Boudwhhaaa…? What? Boudior, essentially, means a woman’s private room, or dressing room. Amor, in Spanish, as a name, means Love. So, for our business, we want you to love being in your “dressing room”. You don’t have to looooove your body to take boudoir photos, but you do have to like yourself. It’s our job to make you like the way your body looks in the outcome.
Who should do boudoir photos? Someone who recognizes the value of their body and loves themselves as is. I cannot stress enough that, while a boudoir book makes a lovely gift, the gift should first be to yourself, then, only then, to someone else that you love and trust enough to have revealing photos of you.
Why do boudoir? Why not, I ask. You can be fun, creative, and choose to show as much or as little skin as you like in boudoir pics. Please take a look at our gallery to see what ideas we have come up with for those you are fun and flirty and those who are down and dirty. I love color in pictures, but black and white still seems to be the standard. Often, boudoir books are given from brides to grooms as gifts, however, they make great anniversary gifts too. And Valentine’s Day, and Christmas, and Birthday gifts….etc…
I often do boudoir shoots on location. Most people feel at home in their own bed, kitchen, living room, laundry room, etc. For pin-up boudoir shoots, very little has to be revealed, but choosing the laundry room or kitchen can add a creative element to the shoot. Outdoor shoots are possible as well, depending on where you live and what you’re looking for out of a session. If you’re looking to reveal little, certainly, we could find a way to go to a public park if you so desire.
Boudoir shoots should be done at any age, anytime! It can be a once in a lifetime excursion, or a pre-pregnancy and then maternity shoot or because you just got divorced and you’re feeling particularly sexy and sassy! Yes, maternity boudoir is a thing. Why then? Because women are “glowing” so they look younger, and their breasts are likely the biggest that they will ever be. It has also been described to be as a way to bond with the baby inside and document it.
Finally, we offer boudoir parties for any occasion, but may include the following: bachelorette parties, birthday parties, surprise parties, anniversary celebrations, divorce parties, engagement parties, etc. These are a blast! Bring some wine and let the entertainment begin. Each person has up to 30 minutes and gets 5 proofs, which is a pretty good deal, and, since we do all types of boudoir, we can accommodate one pin-up and the next wanting lingerie. It is a definite something to look to as a surprise party as the hostess is free with 5+ guests.
