a beautifully decorated room used in the past by a woman for sleeping, dressing, relaxing and entertaining.
When I mention boudoir photography, people are either very excited or very...not. There's this almost taboo feeling about boudoir photography. People aren't totally sure what it is. Is it nudity? Is it dirty? Is it...porn? Answers: sometimes, no & no.
Boudoir photography in my mind = beauty. It's watching a woman see her own beauty, no matter her age or dress size. It's being in a beautiful bedroom, hotel room or studio. It's putting on beautiful clothes, shoes, underwear, makeup and whatever else you want (or don't want) My boudoir clients always start out a little nervous, which is totally understandable. I mean...hello!? You're getting in front of my camera, often times in less than what a bathing suit covers, and I'm taking your photo. But you know what? By the end of the session, my clients are always having a great time & often don't want the session to end. Yay! By the time they see their final images, they are often left speechless. One client said to me, "Ok. How much Photoshop did you use to make me look like that?" I simply told her, "None." She was beautiful, as-is. So are you. I promise.
Thank you to all of our models who came to our bed and breakfast suite last weekend for this boudoir event. Special thank you to Heather Mills Photography of Eugene for helping make this boudoir vision come to life. I always enjoying working with you & had a great time.
