You’ve always wanted to do a boudoir shoot, but you’re nervous about being photographed in your underwear by a stranger. Perhaps you’re waiting until you’ve lost a few more pounds. Maybe you don’t see your gender represented in boudoir shoots that often. Or you’ve convinced yourself that boudoir shoots are only for people in their twenties and you’re too old, or not pretty enough, or it would be selfish to spend that amount of money on yourself. Does any/all of this sound familiar?
Being photographed is such an empowering experience. I won’t deny it can be nerve wracking getting in front of camera, but with the right photographer, lots of friendly pre-shoot conversation, your favourite music playing and plenty of posing guidance, those nerves will disappear within seconds. Boudoir photography gives you the opportunity to celebrate your body by creating beautiful, sophisticated and timeless images that will preserve those ‘wow, I look and feel incredible!’ memories for years to come. Whichever pronouns you prefer, the privilege for me is that it’s in my power to make you feel empowered, confident, strong and sexy as hell; whether you want to mark a life milestone, reward a personal achievement or simply document your fabulous self in all your glory.
One of the main reasons people come to me for boudoir photography is for my signature style of realistic editing. Drawing on my years of expertise as both a photographer AND professional retoucher – (thats right, I am both an Adobe and Wacom influencer) – I want you to look and feel like you on your very best day; because let’s be honest, no one else does a better a job of being you than you! No over-edited skin or photoshop surgery goes on over here, we’ll focus on getting it right in camera, with comfortable lingerie/clothing that flatters your figure and perfect posing to accentuate your best bits, combined with flawless lighting skills and lots of attention to detail. When you look at the un-edited proofs to choose your favourites for editing, you’ll feel amazing knowing thats really YOU in that photo. Your body is incredible and you really do look this good in real life!
Clothes on or clothes off, everyone has a different reason for wanting to be photographed. No two people are the same, and it’s really important to me that you’re offered a completely bespoke package to reflect that. You won’t be limited by a number of sets or poses, giving you the freedom to get as creative with your shoot and reflect your unique personality. I want to leave you with images you’re going to obsess over and use as a constant reminder of exactly who you are, and why you are proud to be you. Why? Because one of the most important processes in my journey to body confidence and self-acceptance was opening myself up to the concept of being photographed and existing in photos. The best part of having your photograph taken is seeing the beauty that another person finds in you – and I want you to have that uplifting and empowering experience too.
The shoot will take place in a location of your choosing. This is one of my favourite features of my boudoir package, giving you complete freedom to control where your shoot takes place and allowing us to create you something completely bespoke rather than limiting you to specific sets or poses. Some clients opt to shoot in their home, others choose a fancy hotel and plan a full night out on the town afterwards with their hair and make up! The choice is completely up to you!
On arrival, we’ll get you settled into hair and make up with one of my resident professional stylists for the full makeover experience. Its important to me that you look like you on your very best day, so you’ll spend about 90 minutes being pampered and made to feel like royalty. I’ll pop on some music, we’ll have a good chat and before you know it, you’ll be slipping into something glamorous ready for your moment in the spotlight!
The shoot itself is quite a physical process – those pin up poses require some core strength(!) – so we’ll aim to shoot for about 60-90 minutes, giving you plenty of time for an outfit change, or even two! Working from your natural body movements and nuances, I’ll guide you into poses that show off your curves and enhance your favourite assets, whilst still reflecting your unique personality. We’ll put on some of your favourite music, have a dance between poses and have lots of fun, making this an experience you’ll remember forever.
After your shoot, you’ll receive access to your very own private, password protected gallery, which will include proof images of your best shots from your boudoir photoshoot. There’s usually a choice of about 50 images in a wide range of poses, from which you’ll be able to choose your favourite images to be edited in my signature style and sent to you in high resolution via your very own private online gallery. And yes, if you decide at any point you want to upgrade your package to include more images, you are absolutely welcome to!
As for retouching, did you know I’m an influencer for both Adobe and Wacom? Thats right, having spent most of the past decade delivering lectures, workshops, tutorials and live streams for other photographers on how to edit their photos and speed up their post-photoshoot workflows, my industry accreditations make me your go to woman for high end, realistic retouching. No plastic looking skin over here! I’ll get as much right as possible in camera, then colour match any garments as necessary and give the images a quick polish before they are ready to be released. Your entire photographic needs met in one simple package.
