5 reasons for a boudoir shoot

Boudoir Season: Love, romance and intimacy.

There’s only a few weeks till Valentine’s Day.  Whether you’re happily in a relationship, blissfully single or enjoying that in-between space, a beauty session is the perfect way to celebrate YOU.  Unlock the inner goddess that’s been waiting to shine…

We’re here to remind you who actually deserves all your love and attention this season.  Our Beauty Sessions include a luxury photoshoot  in our Midtown Manhattan NYC studio and complimentary makeup to accentuate your best features.  Be sure to have some evening plans ready, because you’re going to leave your shoot looking and feeling like a QUEEN.

Here are 5 amazing reasons why our clients have indulged in the the boudoir experience for themselves:

1. Boudoir Photography boosts your inner confidence

We’ve come a long way, but the fact remains that it’s often difficult to fully embrace our power as women. We’re constantly being told how we ought to look, behave, dress, feel, and express ourselves…  All of these societal pressures can create internal conflict and prevent women from embracing their authentic selves.   The inherent vulnerability of a boudoir shoot unleashes something deep inside, and helps you reconnect with important parts of themselves that have been forgotten for too long.

2. Boudoir Photography enhances your engagement, wedding, or anniversary.

Love is the most powerful emotion.  Boudoir photography is the perfect way to celebrate your beautiful, sensual self in honor of the new chapter you’re entering with the love of your life.  Whether you’re celebrating an engagement, wedding or anniversary, boudoir portraits make the perfect gift for your loved one… and for yourself!

3. A Beauty Photoshoot is the perfect way to celebrate a milestone.

There are so many wonderful occasions worth celebrating.  A special birthday, an achievement that’d taken a lot of hard work, or overcoming a particularly difficult challenge.  A boudoir photoshoot is the perfect way to commemorate this special time in your life as beautiful works of art.

4. Boudoir Photography helps in the healing process.  

Living through a traumatic event is deeply personal and usually accompanied by mixed emotions of shame, anger, fear and guilt.  It takes a lot of courage and hard work to relearn who you are and what’s most important to you.  When you’re ready to move forward, a boudoir shoot is a great spark.  As a complement to professional medical help, many of our clients have embraced the luxury of boudoir photography as part of their healing.

5. A Boudoir Photoshoot is the ultimate indulgence.

Do you really need a reason to do something you’ve always wanted to do?  Changing careers, traveling to new destinations, sky diving…  We believe that life is meant to be explored, enjoyed, and celebrated.  Give yourself the permission and encouragement to take the plunge.  We can’t wait to hear from you, and plan the most perfect boudoir experience!!

The biggest myths about boudoir photography

Some of the biggest lies we hear about boudoir photography…

You have to have a “perfect” body to do it. False! 

You don’t need to lose weight. Embracing your body and learning self-love is what we strive for. We won’t try to Photoshop every single thing you hate about yourself. Instead, we work around big ‘no-nos’ with flattering posing and lighting. You don’t need to change a single thing about yourself! This is a wonderful way to show you how gorgeous you truly are. 

They’re just raunchy photos. False!

It’s so much more than that. Of course, if you prefer, we can make that happen. Boudoir is an experience that teaches body empowerment and celebrating the skin you’re in. 

You can only do a boudoir shoot for your partner. False!

Absolutely not!  Even if you’re in a relationship, you don’t have to do boudoir as a gift to your partner. Do it for yourself! It’s all about self-worth and investing in YOU. A boudoir shoot will show you how beautiful you really are.

Beauty photography is a celebration of the female body.

A boudoir photoshoot allows you to show off your confidence and your curves while getting to see your body in a whole new light. If you’re like most women, you may feel a little nervous about the idea. It’s perfectly normal to get the jitters, but there’s nothing to worry about.

Any nervousness will quickly fade within the first couple of clicks of the camera.  At the beginning of your session, we’ll look over your styles and discuss your wishes.  We’ll also share our vision and ideas that would fit your preferred style.  We will make you feel comfortable, play up your favorite assets and flatter your unique body shape.

Boudoir photography is for women of all ages, shapes and sizes.

By the end of the session, you’ll be laughing and having a blast.  All women are beautiful in their own unique way, and it’s our goal to capture you in a way that makes you look drop dead gorgeous.  Boudoir sessions provide a liberating experience that will give you an unbelievable confidence boost.  So leave your inhibitions behind, and get ready for an incredible shoot!

maternity photography with a cultural twist

Although we offer a full wardrobe for maternity photo shoots, we always encourage clients to bring along a few favorite items of their own.  We especially  love when clients incorporate their traditional garb and accessories for some meaningful portraits.  With our studio in the heart of NYC, there’s nothing more special than capturing the variety of cultures at our fingertips.  Although we may all have different traditions and beliefs, the beauty of motherhood unites us all!!

dreamy and ethereal maternity photoshoot

We loved getting creative with this gorgeous mama-to-be in our Midtown studio. We capture a variety of ethereal concepts to be displayed in the nursery, and sultry concepts for the bedroom. Although we offer a full wardrobe for maternity portraits, we always encourage clients to bring along a few favorite items of their own. These concepts with the lace crop top were absolutely divine, and the black Calvin Klein underwear with blazer was a classic look that can easily be shared with family and friends. We’re excited to design a keepsake album that will be treasured for years to come!!
