Is Boudoir Photography safe? Does the notion of Boudoir Photography make you feel like a curious kitty or a ferocious feline? As I gear up for a boudoir session, I have to remind myself how I might approach my various clients.
When you decide to become part of this experience, it may be daunting, you can literally feel exposed emotionally (to a degree). If you are very shy or uncertain about what the results will be, you might hold back, feel tense and be unable to get “out” of yourself and allow yourself to pretend.
I don’t do nudes. I may wrap you in a white sheet or tulle, but you have the option to pretend to be nude. So Boudoir Photography is a safe experience. (I strive to make you feel lovely and relaxed and open to the experience. It is very private, and I certainly will never show your or publish your images to anyone without your permission.)
Also Boudoir does not mean “without clothes”. It could merely allow for sensuous or fun expression while wearing a big sloppy sweater or white man’s shirt. Or you may be the kind of woman who is raring to go, to try unusual poses or outfits and just let loose. But I’d venture to say that most of us are somewhere in between: after all, if you decided to consider the experience then you are curious, and while you may be shy, there may be a part of you that is scratching to get out.
Also images can be designed so that there is a degree of anonymity by using a hat or scarves to cover up a portion of the face. A bit of trepidation is good, it gets the blood going and can actually help to create some interesting results. I haven’t met a woman yet who has absolutely said “no way would I ever do that”. There is always a degree of earnest curiosity in their response. Meow.
