What is Boudoir Photography? Boudoir (pronounced boo-dwah) is french for “a lady’s bedroom”. Boudoir photography is photos of a woman as she is in the privacy of her bedroom. She is usually wearing lingerie or nothing at all. It is by no means R rated . . .more like PG-13 rated. The woman’s body is portrayed in a tasteful way that merely IMPLIES that she may be nude. Some women may prefer to wear lingerie the entire shoot. The goal is to project the woman at her most sexy, and is usually given as a gift to her man. Sometimes a woman may do one of these shoots just to preserve her beauty. Remember the Sex in the City episode when Samantha posed nude just so she could look back years from now and remember how hot she was? You don’t have to pose nude, but you get the idea. Whatever the reason, a boudoir shoot will certainly boost your self-confidence, whether you need it or not! We guarantee it!

About Our Boudoir Parties
Round up 4 to 9 of your girlfriends and we will coordinate makeup artists, the party will take place at our studio (so you won’t have to do any cleaning-Yaaa!), we provide props and accessories and photograph you and your friends in your most flattering lingerie. We have two options for parties: a Mini Party or our Full Party. The sessions can be private, or you can have a friend in the room with you if that will make you more comfortable. Your party can last 5-7 hours depending on the number in your party and whether you choose a mini or full party package. You can have fun with it and do a pin-up, glamour or Old Hollywood style shoot, just lingerie, almost nude or even some role playing. You can combine all these styles at no extra charge.
