What is a Boudoir Session?
Boudoir sessions are tasteful photo’s that hint at sexiness. Every
person has their own idea of what sexy is as well as what they are
comfortable with. These sessions are fun, sexy, flirty and even a bit
sensual all the while maintaining your comfort level.
Hair & Make-up
Many Ladies are good at doing their own hair & make-up but there
are plenty of options available. Salons and make-up counters are good
resources and we have hair and Make-up artists who we work with on a
regular basis. Either way be sure to let whoever you hire that you’re
having a photoshoot done as make-up will need to be a bit darker than
you normally wear it.
Body Image & Weight
Most women don’t have bodies like a super model, but that doesn’t
mean you can’t have fantastic, sexy photos as well. A good photographer
will know just how to highlight your assets best while disguising the
parts of you that you feel self conscious about. Just remember.. your
significant other loves you just the way you are.

40′s pinup is now back in style and is very sexy. Several retailers on the web carry pinup inspired clothing.
Bring clothing that you feel sexy and beautiful in. Bras, panties,
corsets, teddies, stockings, tank tops, and men’s business shirts are
all popular. Don’t forget to bring accessories for each of your outfits
to add the finishing touch.
Modesty & Nudity
You don’t have to take your clothes off to be sexy. Clothed,
partially clothed, hinted nudity and fully nude can all be sexy. Let
your photographer know what your comfortable showing in your photos and
trust them to keep the parts you want hidden to stay that way. Some
photographers offer fine art nudes while others do not. Be sure to ask
when booking your session.
Many photographers include retouching with their portrait prints and
albums but be sure to ask how much is included with your session. We go
for a high quality / avant-garde style of retouching for our clients,
which we’re known for, however this varies greatly from photographer to

You and three to four of your best girlfriends can get together and
do your sessions at the same time. These can be done at the studio, your
home or in a local hotel and are a guaranteed laugh a minute. Arrange
for someone to come and do your hair and make-up, do your own or do each
others. Each of you will be photographed individually as you are
dressed (or undressed) and ready. Be sure to have some food and drinks
handy as it can make for a long but very fun day. At the end we take a
group shot to commemorate the session.
Where to do your session
Your session can be done at your photographers studio, your home, a
local hotel, bed and breakfast and even outside in a private or secluded
area. Be sure to discuss your options with your photographer. We are
very open to location shooting where necessary, and are equally at home
in the studio.
Tips for the morning of your session
Drink lots of water and wear loose fitting clothing. Avoid tight
fitting undergarments as they are the most likely to leave elastic
pressure lines on your skin.
Above all the aim of Boudoir photography is to have fun and really enjoy the day.
