“Why did you choose a career taking boudoir photographs?” That’s a question I hear often. Actually, I feel lucky to be a part of such a rewarding experience in people’s lives. Boudoir photo sessions are more than sexy pictures. The whole experience, for most women or couples, is about embracing who they really are. It’s about celebrating their bodies and allowing their spirits to shine through to show who they really are. It is an amazing experience to get to be a part of the metamorphosis that especially women go through to not only get glammed up on the outside, but also to really let their emotion show through their smile and their eyes. Even better than being a part of the transformation during the shoot, is watching their reactions to seeing their digital proofs. As they say, it is priceless.
Boudoir Style Photos That Impress
Women and couples book their boudoir sessions for a variety of reasons. Some are seeking the thrill of stepping outside their comfort zone. Others just want the opportunity to love the skin they’re in. And many want to share the special gift of themselves with the ones they love. With the right pose, lighting, and experienced photographer to pull the inner spirit to their eyes and smile, boudoir photo sessions produce stunning and sometimes unexpectedly beautiful images.
I have shot many types of photography including corporate, family photos, pin ups, plus size boudoir photography photo shoots and various other types. It is fun to be a part of anyone’s memory making, but boudoir photography is, by far, the most dynamic experience. Most professional photographers’ work goes up on the mantle or in the hallway gallery of cousins, aunts, and uncles, probably only to be noticed upon receipt of the picture or perhaps during family reunions. While that is incredibly important, the making and displaying of boudoir style photos have lasting effects on the photo subject. Not many people remember posing with mom and dad or brother and sister for the annual Christmas photo. But it is unlikely that a boudoir photo shoot will be forgotten.
Photography as Sensual Artistry
As a male boudoir photographer, I am very sensitive to engaging with women during photo shoots in a very professional and appropriate way. Years of experience have taught me how to bring out the best emotions without making anyone uncomfortable. One of the ways I think helps women overcome any anxiety is to show them the artistry. My boudoir pictures are never tacky, they are about elevating the female form to an almost ethereal level. Sure, some clients want grittier poses more than others and that is their choice and that is fine. We can shoot any style. But, most women just want to feel beautiful and look glamorous in their pictures. They want something special that impresses them or the ones they share the pictures with.
