As many of you know, I recently traveled to Santa Barbara California for a photography conference called United. My 1st session of the trip was something I was quite excited about, Boudoir, although I had no idea it would be on the BEACH! This is not your typical Boudoir session, it is a great way to show that Boudoir doesn’t only have to take place in a bedroom, hotel or studio setting, you can get as creative as you want and often outdoor locations a seriously fun and add a very differnt element to the shoot.
OK, so what is Boudoir Photography exactly?
Boudoir is an 18th century French word that is translated as – a woman’s bedroom or a private sitting room. Boudoir photography, therefore, usually takes place in a setting such as a bedroom or a hotel room… an intimate setting to create classy images that can be soft, romantic, sexy, sensual, or naughty. The main focus of a boudoir photographer is to capture you in the most flattering way by guiding you through the poses that compliment your body type. Its about showcasing as much or a little as you feel comfortable with and creating art that you or your significant other can charish forever.
Who is boudoir photography for? The answer… Every Woman, of all sizes and shapes.
1. A woman that wants to surprise that special one in her life with a unique and personal gift…. I mean think about it ladies, watching him open album for the first time and drool all over your sexy photos. Boudoir albums also make great gift for the Mr. to be to open on your wedding day. *wink wink*
