This Mom's Boudoir Photo Shoot

This Mom's Boudoir Photo Shoot

Client Siobhan’s boudoir photo shoot and her full album design. Make sure and watch the video all the way to the end where you’ll get to see her reaction to seeing her final images for the very first time.

You’ll also get to hear Siobhan’s reason for doing a session for herself and her mindset of her self after having children. It’s not a painful infomercial testimonial kind of thing it’s worth hearing if you’re a mom and ever thought about doing a boudoir session for yourself.

Battling your Inner Critic

Battling your Inner Critic

One of the most curious things I get to observe as a male boudoir photographer is just how prevalent it is for women latch on to perceived body flaws and build narratives around them. As a whole, we as men don’t do this nearly as much as women do. This behavior is actually something so uncommon in men I actually have to slow down and explain women’s perspective to men curious about why a woman would want to do a boudoir session for herself.

To further exaggerate this, I’ll show women the images from past clients who did their sessions despite their insecurities and often times they will make a comment along the lines of

“what the fuck did she have to be nervous about?!? She’s gorgeous!!!”

The truth that I think most women don’t realize is that the inner critic is something that infects the minds of women of all body types and age ranges. It’s a condition that has no mercy that I’ve personally seen exhibited in published models and mothers of multiple children alike.

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.

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!

San Francisco Boudoir Photographer Jason Guy - There is honestly very few things in my life that are as rewarding as helping someone change the way they see themselves. Today's post features my gorgeous client Nichole. Nichole was not optimistic that she was going to get images that she loved from her photo shoot, but she decided to go though with it anyway thanks in large part to her moms encouragement.

Outdoor Boudoir Photography

Outdoor Boudoir Photography

This summer I had way too many of my clients ask me if I do any of my boudoir sessions outdoors. Every time I was asked the question I said of course I do and I would show them some examples from some past clients. I heard the questions with such frequency this year though, that I felt the need to create this article to hopefully answer this question once and for all: 

YES!!! You can absolutely do your boudoir session outdoors!

Summer's Boudoir Photo Shoot

Summer's Boudoir Photo Shoot

Summer was nervous about her boudoir photoshoot with me because she didn't want to have a repeat experience of being photographed for her boudoir session without any coaching on how to pose her body. I told her not to worry and that my makeup artist and I would take care of everything and make her look amazing. 

Christine's Boudoir Photo Shoot

Christine was openly nervous about her boudoir photoshoot before we started, however after hair and makeup artist Ducky Rickman gave her a full makeover it was all down hill from there. After her makeover, I coached Christine on how to pose her body and nail her expression with great consistency. Together we photographed one of my favorite boudoir sessions to date.

Every boudoir photoshoot is different and every client is a unique individual. I take great pride in being able to pose all body types to make each woman look her very best. Nichole was brave enough to allow me to document her boudoir experience from start to finish and you should definitely check out her amazing transformation in the video above.

Understandably most of the boudoir sessions I photograph stay private for obvious reasons. Every once in a while however, I have a client that is brave enough to share her boudoir experience with others.

I always like to start these posts with an image to hopefully grab your attention enough to read a  a few short paragraphs about whatever the topic of the day is. This particular shoot has so much great imagery from it I really didn't know what image to post in the header. So if you're in more of a picture book kind of reading mood just skip to the bottom of the post and check out the images from the shoot. I don't think you'll be disappointed!
