Every year women contact me to schedule a boudoir session as a gift for an upcoming holiday or birthday. Many end up delivering their gift late… Oooops. This post is here to change that so that we can blow his mind proper on the actual day of your special occasion.
One of the most common objections I hear from women over 40 is concerns regarding their age. I think these women remember themselves in their younger years and feel like a boudoir session is something that should have been captured years ago thus buying into the myth that boudoir is only something you should do if you are young any physically “perfect.”
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!
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.
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.
One of the greatest compliments I occasionally get is when a client travels a great distance to come do a boudoir photo shoot with me. That was exactly the case for my gorgeous client Michelle who traveled all the way from Hawaii to come do this session.
After extensively researching her options for boudoir photographers in her home town and not liking the local options, Michelle decided to do a search for boudoir photographers in the San Francisco bay area. Her thought was that she would come do a session with me while out in the bay area visiting with a friend. This was also a convenient excuse for her to use to slip away from her husband as this session is going to be a surprise present for him!
I really enjoyed producing this boudoir photoshoot for Jennifer. I could tell that she didn't exactly have the highest hopes for what her final images would look like when she came in for her consultation. When I see this expectation in clients body language, it honestly really just fires me up to try and create unbelievable images that will get them to have that OMG reaction for their final reveal!
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.
