What the heck is boudoir?

Technically speaking, “boudoir” is a French word for a woman’s private sitting room or sometimes a private bedroom. It’s evolved to describe a genre of photography that may encompass a wide range of emotions: sensual, romantic, empowering, intimate, sexual, erotic, fierce, dark, light, dreamy, edgy, provocative, playful, or even mysterious. Honestly, it’s up to you and your tastes on what you want to convey. Boudoir photos don’t mean you have to be naked!

What boudoir means to us.

That’s our tagline. It sounds pretty straight-forward, but there’s meaning behind it. Since the beginning, we’ve wanted to create a truly unique and intimate experience from first meeting to final images. We believe everyone should have their own boudoir experience for so many reasons.

In a society that constantly tells us how to look and feel about our own bodies, we want to help you appreciate and CELEBRATE yourself – just the way you are. You deserve to feel confident and empowered in a way that highlights how wonderfully and beautifully you were created. It’s not just about sexy pictures. It’s about beginning to break down your own insecurities and loving yourself in the process.

We want you to be excited for your session. Prepare for it. Anticipate it. Have fun with it. Heck, even brag about it! One of the most rewarding experiences is being able to watch a client react to their photos. We love watching the smiles, laughter, and sometimes even joyful tears as they think, “wow, I AM beautiful.” It’s amazing how powerfully rewarding it can be to step a little outside your comfort zone!
