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.
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.
Tips to help you get the best boudoir photos possible. This post will help you come up with a game plan of what to do and when to do it before your photo shoot. Following these recommendations will be invaluable to the overall quality of your final images.
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.
Get ready to say goodbye to all of your insecurities because by the time you’re through with your shoot, they’ll be long gone! The way Jason posed my body into and out of the light, I quickly realized I was in good hands and after he shared a few shots with me, my butterflies disappeared. As the day went on, his photos made me even more confident. I highly recommend a boudoir session with Jason - you’ll finally see yourself as beautiful as everyone else does!
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.
