This is my Boudoir Beauty. Let’s get real. Many of us have fantasized about being photographed in our “altogether” as the saying goes. Maybe we strike a pose, “voguing” in front of the mirror or just meditate on the prospect of experiencing something glamorous in our lives.That might mean buying a corset or garters or something else a bit risqué. But basically in doing so we’re trying out for the part, acting if you will, expressing ourselves as someone a bit more sensual than the way we normally see ourselves. And it’s a lot of fun. It’s a time to let yourself go and express the “other” you (that may have been buried under a mountain of laundry or dirty dishes) for a while. And to hold that thought, boudoir photography takes it all one step further by allowing us to revisit that moment, whenever you like. These images of you are immutable. It’s not only refreshing, but also re-invigorating to see ourselves as we can be. This is your chance to be a boudoir beauty.
The photo shoot with Jackie was an exciting one. We chose some wonderful sensual lingerie, corsets and stockings, curled her hair and did the full on make-up, though it was still subdued by modern standards. In other words, she still looked like her beautiful self, but polished and sparkling for the camera. I chose lighting that gave her a mysterious aura in some images and brighter light that made her positively glow.
She’s decided to have me create a photo book of her boudoir images to gift to her husband who travels a great deal…just to remind him of what he’s missing while he’s away!
