Author: San Francisco bay area boudoir photographer Jason Guy | Here’s a short and sweet BTS video from my recent boudoir photo shoot with Nikki! Women like her are the major reason I love doing what I do so much! Nikki is a hardworking mom of a little boy and giving her images like the ones you’ll see in the above video is truly an amazing self confidence boost to give to a woman like her!
If I’ve said it once I’ve said it a thousand times, the strongest reason to do a boudoir session is to help you change the way you see yourself and make you feel good about yourself as you are!!! Boudoir has never been about, fixing this or that perceived body flaw and then documenting yourself once you are “perfect.” Boudoir is about changing the way you see yourself, and shutting down the negative thoughts I hear expressed by so many of my beautiful clients. I believe every women I photograph has truly stunning assets to showcase, and I can’t wait to discover yours and show them back to you in your final images.
Boudoir Before & After

Does the thought of doing a boudoir session make you super nervous? If you’re nodding your head yes, you’re not alone. A clear majority of my clients are typically visibly nervous before we start photographing their sessions. In most cases I usually only need about 10-20 minutes to break though that nervousness and most people are completely comfortable after that.
Most women that contact me, are super nervous about their sessions. They are worried about this or that perceived body flaw and how they will appear when I level my camera at them. This was not one of those sessions. No, Devon has been photographed before and she is one of the rare women I have had come see me, that is super confident in herself.

A heartfelt verbal complement is a really awesome thing that everyone really enjoys receiving. When someone shows you how much they appreciate what you do with an action though… That’s the kind of compliment that I love because I know its not hollow words but rather something authentic and genuine.
So I called my sister last month and asked her what she wanted for her birthday. The call went something like this:
Me: Hey what do you want for your birthday?
Her: A swim suit photo shoot on the beach!
Me: I can do that!
Author: San Francisco Boudoir Photographer Jason Guy | I can remember the first boudoir session I ever photographed. I was pretty damned nervous to be perfectly honest. Although those nerves have long since faded as I became better and more proficient at what I do, I always try and remember how I felt in those early sessions. I imagine this is probably pretty similar to how most of my clients feel at their boudoir sessions as they are photographed in an intimate setting often for the very first time.
