I had the pleasure of creating this boudoir shoot with some very lovely wedding industry ladies to help it all come together. I did the shot primarily to promote the boudoir sessions I do. Whilst I appreciate not everyone would want to wonder round the woods in their undies, I wanted to create something different to show you what you could create for your boudoir session. I’m getting more and more brides wanting one of these light and lovely boudoir sessions to then give the images to their partners in crime as a gift on the morning of their wedding day. So I have now created a couple of packages for these boudoir sessions. They can include having your hair and makeup done, flowers for the shoot and perhaps even a glass of prosecco to really indulge and relax into the shoot.
Boudoir shoots are a beautiful celebration of who you are. Taken in a private, calm space by me, a female photographer, you will feel confident and gorgeous. Please get in touch to discuss a session if you’re thinking about having a boudoir shoot, I can talk you through all the little details and send you the info guide.
Below are some images from the styled shoot along with more information and some kind words from a previous client who enjoyed her boudoir session.
What is a Boudoir shoot?
A boudoir shoot is a gorgeous way to celebrate your femininity and individuality. It’s an intimate and indulgent photoshoot in a relaxed setting. It’s about taking control of your beauty and your body so you can wear as much or as little as you like. Maybe use it as an opportunity to buy some beautiful new underwear.
Why have a Boudoir Shoot?
A Boudoir Shoot is an empowering and special way to give yourself a deserved self-esteem boost. Do it for yourself – you will look and feel amazing and walk away with new body confidence. Do it for your partner – imagine their face as they open professional photos of you looking gorgeous in your sexy underwear. Do it with some girl friends – celebrate your femininity and friendship. Do it to celebrate a milestone in your life – an anniversary, a wedding, a promotion, a birthday. Or do it as a surprise for your partner or groom to be – it’s a perfect gift to open on your wedding morning.
Heres what one of my previous clients had to say about her boudoir session:
“I’d never thought before about doing a boudoir shoot, however a friend of mine had just experienced one and the results looked great. Another good friend was about to get married and we had talked about finding a boudoir photographer for her. She had wanted to have some photographs made to give to her fiancé the morning of their wedding.
Jane had been my wedding photographer 6 years ago and the results were perfect so I thought of her straight away. Jane was so professional from the first phone call – she put all my nerves to rest. She gave great advice on the best types of lingerie to buy, what colours look most flattering in certain lights and offered to host the shoot at her stylish house. She offered to take our pictures together, which made it into the perfect unique girly day out!
The day of the shoot arrived and straight away we were made to feel at ease and really comfortable. Jane never rushed us and made us feel like we were setting the pace. Throughout she varied the shots, giving clear direction and really encouraging feedback. Both myself and my friend felt so very special and body confident – which is not something I expected to feel while wearing so little in front of a camera!
It turned out to be such a special day – both myself and my friend felt it had been a truly enjoyable and memorable day and felt 100% comfortable at every point. Jane was amazing and I would absolutely recommend her. The results were breathtaking – she had managed to bring out the very best of both myself and my friend. I’m so glad that I went ahead with the shoot, not only was it a special experience, but I have beautiful unique photos of me that I can look back on in years to come. And yes, my husband was very pleased with the results too….!
