You may have heard the phrase " Boudoir Session " but just what is a Boudoir photography session? And why you should have one? Boudoir is French for 'bedroom' (or private room) and a boudoir photo-shoot is a sensual photography session where you get to wear delicate and pretty lingerie, in a bedroom 'boudoir' type setting, and have photographs taken of you looking like never before. The greatest thing about having a boudoir session with Beautifully Undressed is that you don't have to be a model, you don't need a reason to have the shoot, and it's the real you that makes your photos sexy, not what society says.
With a professional hair and makeup artist helping to create a look that you want, and a professional boudoir photographer to take your photos (together with professional editing/retouching) I guarantee this will give you some of the best portraits that you will ever see of yourself.
I've put together seven top reasons below why you should get one done, have a read.
1. YOU ARE GOING TO LOOK AMAZING.
I always suggest that you organise a date after getting your boudoir portraits done, because you will look and feel amazing and you will most definitely feel like celebrating afterwards. If you are waiting to lose those last few pounds DON’T! Because as a professional photographer I know how to pose you to flatter your individual body type, make you feel comfortable, and help you to enjoy the experience (read more about how I work here).
2. IT WILL MAKE A GREAT GIFT FOR YOUR SIGNIFICANT OTHER.
Imagine seeing the look on the face of your loved one when you surprise them with a beautiful album filled with sensuous pictures of you looking super sultry and stunning. They think you’re beautiful on your worst hair days and in your gym pants, so show them how hot you look in classy lingerie and professional makeup! It maybe a side they have never seen before.
3. IT WILL MAKE A GREAT GIFT FOR YOURSELF.
Show off your beauty and give yourself a self-esteem boost with photographs that you can treasure. Do it for yourself. Be pampered. Indulge. And celebrate who YOU are through beautiful photography.
4. GETTING MARRIED? THEN MAYBE YOU’LL ALREADY BE PREPARING YOURSELF FOR THE WEDDING.
If you are getting married you may have been on a skin care routine for the last few months to make sure you look the best for your wedding day. Why not show off your hard work and document this momentous time in your life? It’s becoming very popular for brides-to-be to surprise their soon-to-be spouse with a photo album filled with beautiful photos from a boudoir session the night before their wedding day. Surprise!
5. YOU GET TO TREAT YOURSELF!
Women tend to put others first in their lives a lot of the time. So take this opportunity to take some time out, go shopping and really spoil yourself!
6. IT’S A GREAT WAY TO CELEBRATE.
Got an anniversary coming up or a well-deserved achievement? Why not document this time in your life in a rewarding way? Not only will you have gorgeous portraits of yourself, but when you look back at them you’ll remember how amazing this time in your life was! Celebrate it through beautiful photographs of YOU!
7. IT WILL MAKE YOU FEEL GREAT.
Getting pampered and spoilt for a few hours is great therapy for anyone! But wait until you get to see the photographs for the first time. You will be blown away. You will see how gorgeous you really are and I guarantee it will put a little spring in your step!
Remember that you reveal as much as you want to and you don't have to wear anything that makes you feel uncomfortable, a boudoir session is all about you, and you express yourself on the shoot which-ever way you feel! Don’t feel put off in any way, treat yourself - you deserve it. Contact me for further info and feel free to ask me any questions.
"Shooting boudoir with Jess was such a lovely experience. Although having seen beautiful images of her work and feeling confident with her photographic talents, I had not been in front of a professional camera for around 7 years! And as every woman does have a difficult relationship with my body! She made me feel relaxed and comfortable, I totally forgot I was in next to nothing being photographed! The images I have seen I absolutely love. She not only has amazing creative talent but also a great demeanour that will make your boudoir experience thoroughly enjoyable! I highly recommend booking Jess for the ultimate boudoir experience." ~ Radha Michelle Pethers
