WHAT WE DO AT MOBILE BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHY
Boudoir—from the French bouder meaning “to pout”—literally refers to a lady's bedroom or dressing room. For that reason, boudoir photography is sometimes referred to as “bedroom photography.” But don't let the name fool you, boudoir photography is not pornographic, degrading, shameful or immoral.
Boudoir photography romanticizes and celebrates the female form. Its subjects are often slightly or provocatively clothed in revealing undergarments. Partial or full nudity may be featured or implied through framing or clever use of props or shadow as cover, resulting in tasteful, artistic shots. But the hallmarks of the style are themes of romance, flirtation and sensuality, not a particular state of dress or undress. The goal is not to objectify the model, but to empower her with confidence and a positive body-image... to help her to feel truly sexy and desirable.
Like other forms of glamour photography, boudoir photography generally relies on the power of suggestion, alluding to curves and erogenous zones to suggest nudity. An attitude of playful, flirtatious sensuality makes the shots ooze sexuality, while maintaining an aura of mystery and conforming to standards of good taste. Imagine yourself featured in the pages of Maxim, Victoria's Secret or Playboy!
A set of boudoir portraits is the perfect sensual surprise for your significant other, boyfriend, lover, husband or the soon-to-be groom. They are an ideal gift for just about any occassion—an anniversary, Valentine's Day, birthday—or even “just because.“ Couples may even choose a session together for a memorable and artistic experience that, thanks to the timelessness of the resulting photos, remains clean and beautiful, eternally.
Our specialty is creating an encouraging, considerate and comfortable atmosphere for first-time models. It's natural to feel a bit self-conscious or “silly” when you start posing for the first time, but it will pass before you know it. Communicate with your photographer and he will use his expertise to make sure that you end up with exactly the results you want, regardless of how vague or specific your goals are. Most of our clients describe their sessions as fun experiences that, especially with their new portfolio of beautiful images, they will never forget.
