What is Boudoir?
It’s a word that means many different things to different people, but in this case what matters is what it means to me, and what it means to you. I see a boudoir photo shoot as a way for a woman to express herself – to celebrate her femininity, her sexiness, her power. To own it. To take time out for herself. Can you give these photos to your significant other? Absolutely. But you can give them to yourself, too. You don’t even have to have a significant other.
I’ve been photographing women for years, but boudoir is special. What I love about boudoir shoots isn’t even the dress up, or the fun, or even the final photos (though those are all elements I enjoy) – it’s what happens for a woman when she allows herself this moment to be sexy – *whatever that means for her*. It’s when a client leaves my studio with a kick in her step, a twinkle in here eye, feeling just that bit more confident in her skin.
