I see a ton of "boudoir photographers" these days with portfolios and instagram profiles full of models. Do I have models in my portfolio? Abso-freakin-lutely! The vast majority of the women in my portfolio however is comprised of moms and every day women that decide to come do a boudoir photo shoot with me to help them change the way they see themselves.
Mary chose to have her boudoir photo shoot photographed in a studio style setting. I really love to approach these sessions from a classical standpoint with the old renaissance painters as my inspiration. These studio style boudoir sessions give a very elegant and timeless feel to the final images which is something I really love. My intention with all of my studio style boudoir sessions is to create timeless final artwork, that will be as relevant 100 years from now as they are today.
One of the most consistent objections I hear from women wanting to do a boudoir photoshoot often revolves around how they perceive themselves physically. I've had some women tell me they would love to do a photoshoot, but they feel like they are getting too old, or that they feel like it's not a good idea because their body has changed since they were in their early 20's. If you're nodding your head yes right now to what I just said you should probably re-evaluate your mindset by checking out this before and after image from Laura's boudoir photoshoot.
