As a Boudoir Photographer I think about this question on a regular basis, what does it mean to me and what are women looking for? For me Boudoir is Sensual Photography of Women but sensuality is different for everyone, what attracts me and what attracts you can be completely different, but the perception that it is ‘sensual in nature’ is still the same.
Some people can be a little ‘nudge nudge’ ‘wink wink’ about Boudoir but its nothing to be ashamed of, the whole world is built around the naughty and nice, chocolate is a great example.
One of my favourite movies ‘Chocolat’ was completely centred around a chocolate shop opened in a french village during lent, suffice to say it did not go down too well and anyone visiting for treats were made to feel guilty, despite how alive it made them feel. The central character ‘Vianne’ changed lives with her chocolate shop by showing people the pleasure it can bring through passion for her product. I aspire to show that Boudoir can do the same for women.
In Boudoir this pleasure is a feeling and an emotion that looking at yourself differently will ignite, “oh my goodness I look, sexy, sensual, beautiful…I didn’t think I could ever do this, I feel amazing!” I believe in the power of images to change lives.
The decision of how much or little you would like to reveal is completely up to you, sometimes just a suggestion of things can create impact, for example; a shoulder and a neckline can be extremely sexy. Think about what you find sexy and appealing, that is Boudoir!
