Exotic Pinup Studios on Boudoir

When it comes to boudoir and photography I like it sexy seductive and suggestive. What is Boudoir, Exactly? Wikipedia states

“Historically, the boudoir formed part of the private suite of rooms of a “lady” or upper-class woman, for bathing and dressing, adjacent to her bedchamber, being the female equivalent of the male cabinet. In later periods, the boudoir was used as a private drawing room, and was used for other activities, such as embroidery or spending time with one’s romantic partner.”

In terms of Photography,

“The term “boudoir” may also be ascribed to a genre of photography. Boudoir photography is not generally a new concept and numerous examples including images of Clara Bow, Mae West and Jean Harlow photographed in a boudoir style from the 1920s through the 1940s.

Typically shot in a photographer’s studio or luxury hotel suites, it has become fashionable to create a set of sensual or sexually suggestive images of women (and occasionally men and couples) in “boudoir style”. The most common manifestation of contemporary boudoir photography is to take variations of candid and posed photographs of the subject partly clothed or in lingerie. Nudity is more often implied than explicit. Commercially the genre is often (though not exclusively) derived from a market for brides to surprise their future husbands by gifting the images on or before their wedding day. Other motivations or inspiration for boudoir photography shoots include anniversaries, birthdays, Valentine’s Day, weight loss regimes, other form of body change or alteration (such as breast augmentation or reduction) and for servicemen and women overseas.

Boudoir photography may, in some cases, be distinguished from other photography genres such as glamour photography, fine art nude photography and erotic photography. According to research carried out in Digital Boudoir Photography (2006), John G. Blair said that the word “Boudoir” or “Boudoir portrait”, was used in 1980 by Motherlode Photography Studio in California to describe a picture more elegant than “erotic portrait” or “semi nude portrait”.”

It could be body parts only or even being absent of a particular piece of clothing. ;) The point is that it sets the photo apart suggestive slightly to make the viewer to want to see more. Above some of my favorites thru the past few years of  boudoir. I’m looking forward to more boudoir this coming year.

Preparing for your photo shoot

 

If you have made your deposit and have your date set then your half way there. The next step is to think about how you want your shoot to look like. In addition to some samples I have here on my site, I have found that texting or emailing  photo samples works really well.  We will be able to narrow down your look. I can then prepare the set, backdrop looks and shooting styles. For example if you want to do a boudoir scene wearing lingerie or corset.  Or a pinup scene wearing  your favorite pinup look. I do have some props and always adding more. We can get creative here on your shoot. Some things I can’t provide like shoes so bringing a couple pairs will be great. Usually Black high pumps is a good choice. White and Red are other great choices.

 

Regarding your nails it’s a good idea to have them manicured chipped polish doesn’t photograph well and takes a lot of editing.

As for your makeup and hair I can provide a makeup artist for a extra cost. See rates page.

Try to wear lose clothing the day of the shoot nothing that leaves skin marks.  And feel free to bring a robe so you can be comfortable.

Please be sure to be on time if your running late please call me and let me know.

Your more then welcome to bring a friend but please limit it to one guest.

Most important this day is for you! It will be fun and my job is to make you look beautiful!
