OUR PERSONAL AND PRIVATE BOUDOIR SHOOTS
A boudoir photoshoot at your home is designed to boost your confidence with professional styling, flattering lighting and easy poses to bring out the best in your figure. Whether you want to treat yourself for a special birthday, surprise your partner on the morning of your wedding, or celebrate your new body after childbirth: every session is unique as no two women’s story is the same. What’s your story?
My Approach to Boudoir Photography
Many people have described my work as ‘artistic photography’ – stylish, elegant and classy, with a boudoir shoot itself being totally bespoke to meet your needs, concerns, ideas and theme. My boudoir or bridal boudoir photo shoots take place around Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Lincolnshire regions in the safety of your own home and are a truly special experience.
There are many reasons why women consider a boudoir shoot and in the next panel you will read about some of them. Most importantly the label ‘boudoir’ is not what you should be focussing on. It is a portrait shoot that not only celebrates who you are but how you feel about yourself and usually involves lingerie and you looking your absolute best. It is a hugely transformative experience that will do amazing things for confidence and self esteem.
Who would have a boudoir photography session?
Brides book a bridal boudoir photoshoot for their husbands to be (or wife to be on same sex couples), women book boudoir photography to celebrate turning 30, 40, 50 or 60, I also get asked to shoot boudoir photography for those who have self esteem to reinvigorate (weight loss surgery, post natal depression or divorce).
If you are looking at our boudoir portfolio and are thinking ‘I can’t look like that’ you are wrong. All of the women on there cannot believe it is them and are so proud of the images that they were happy for me to share them. My job is to make YOU look your best in your body – you just have to trust me and let me direct the session. I take boudoir photography very seriously and I am passionate about giving you an amazing experience and totally individual, artistic, beautiful photographs to treasure.
Unlike many boudoir photographers I do not work to a formula but let each shoot evolve naturally so that the images reflect you and your personality. After all every female body is wonderfully different and I’m going to show you what is utterly gorgeous about yours. But don’t think I won’t take beautiful boudoir portraits too – those are a very important part of a session. You might love ‘light and airy’ and/or ‘dark and sulty’ imagery – it is important that we chat and collaborate to craft the results you want.
Styling your Boudoir Shoot
Most boudoir sessions take place at your home or hotel in Nottingham, I would recommend organising the area you want the shoot to be, such as your bedroom. You will not want any clutter in the background to divert attention away from you. I would recommend having bedsheets a different colour to what you will wear, such as a black bed sheet and then wearing a bright red underwear set should make them stand out. Having your hair and makeup will help make your images pop, and give you an extra glowing look under great creative lighting.
Some boudoir clients like nothing on but covered up with a sheet, I would direct you into the pose but then leave the room whilst you get your self into the suitable room so you feel comfortable as and when required. Silhouette shots can be another great boudoir shot, but this is down to space.
This is your special session so you need to be in control and direct the styles you want, I will simply help you create your ideas, I may throw some ideas at you but again its you that chooses if you like the idea or not.
