The Value Professional Photographers Offer Boudoir Clients

I believe every woman is beautiful and should have images that showcase her beauty. It’s all about finding an artist who can pose them and photograph them in the most flattering ways. Most women have dreamed of being a glamorous movie star, or even a magazine centerfold. But what are we all waiting for? Maybe until that moment when we feel like we’ll look in the mirror and say, “I am beautiful!” Stop waiting. We are beautiful NOW.


Today, we’re inundated with images of beautiful women – in magazines, on TV, and in print campaigns. Everywhere we turn, we see “sexy” photos. And these images often lead to negative body image issues, and make us believe that we cannot be as beautiful as the ads we’re seeing. This is simply false.

I’m pretty sure that all women have aspects of their body that they’re not 100% comfortable with, and maybe even wish they could change. We ALL feel that way sometimes. It’s my job as a photographer to help my clients feel at ease – to show them how to highlight their favorite features, while minimizing their least favorite features. My mission is to create stunning images of every client that they’ll cherish for a lifetime. These images are classic and timeless; they aren’t those “Glamour Shots” from the 80’s and 90’s.

There are many reasons to do a boudoir shoot! Here are just a few:

• Brides-to-be looking for a unique gift to give their groom on the day of the wedding.
• Celebrating a birthday milestone.
• Celebrating your new body, post-baby.
• Just for fun – to showcase real beauty!

Of course, there are more reasons. But the most important? Just do it for YOU! It’s all about celebrating who you are – all the beautiful things about your unique self.


Many of my clients feel more comfortable having a female photographer. As a woman, I know how to accentuate the beauty and curves of a woman’s body, by using posing and lighting that showcases every client in an amazing way!
I believe all women deserve to see themselves at their best. Whether they’re a size two or a size twenty, it doesn’t matter. Women are all beautiful! Plus size & full-figured women can embrace boudoir photography, too. I’m a size twenty-two, and I have done it for myself. Doing a boudoir session can capture your beauty in such a stunning way – as a gift to the one you love, or as a wonderful reminder that YOU are beautiful!
