What is boudoir photography

One of the most asked questions we get is “what is boudoir photography?”

To define boudoir we reach to the French dictionary, and the boudoir meaning is the term “in the ladies bedroom” or “changing room”. So it lends to intimate photography, it can be lingerie photos or even nudes… photos very classy and tastefully done, sexy photography.

Boudoir Pronunciation: ˈbuːdwɑːr

To truly understand and decide if the seductive boudoir photography is for you or not, or even to choose the right photographer for your boudoir shoot. It’s important that you get yourself familiar with what is boudoir photography and how things work.

Once you google “Boudoir Photographer” or “Boudoir Photography near me” you will see a great selection of local boudoir photographers and every photographer has a different style, some are more classy and some are daring. So it is very important that you look thru the galleries and ensure that you like the lighting, angles and style as the boudoir photos can very look “cheap” or “trashy”. I guess the showing more skin can lend to that, so the style the photos are taken are very important. Also ask yourself why are you considering a boudoir photo shoot. Are this boudoir photos for your husband? Are these photos to celebrate yourself? Are you just looking to feel sexy? That is usually what help you choose the style in which you want to be photographed. While we have photographed some really sensual photos, totally bare skin nudes, Alice’s style is aimed to be very classy while being sensual… not really sexual.

Female Boudoir Photographer

Another very important aspect is who will photograph you. Obviously some woman prefer a female boudoir photographer. Not that a male photographer wouldn’t do a great job. It’s just a matter of preference really. In our studio, Alice is our lead photographer and also the person that retouches your photos, meet with you for your view and order appointment. So we are 100% female boudoir studio located in Massachusetts.
