Boudoir photography is a photographic style that features intimate, romantic and maybe even erotic images of its subjects and is primarily intended for the private enjoyment of the subject and their partners. It’s different from glamour and art nude photography in that it’s approach to nudity and sexuality features subjects who are not typically professional models and creates images not intended to be seen by a wide audience but remain under the control of the subject.

Modern boudoir photography dates from the mid 1980’s and is characterized by the empowerment of its female subjects, who were now typically the photographer’s clients rather than professional models.

Boudoir photography is also sometimes given as a gift with the intention of re-affirming and encouraging romance and sensuality between partners in a long-term relationship. It‘s also common for women to have boudoir photographs of themselves made as a gift for a partner on the occasion of their engagement, marriage or before an enforced separation such as a military deployment.

Increasingly, boudoir photography is also seen as something a woman might do purely for their own enjoyment, for the pleasure and affirmation of seeing themselves as attractive, daring, sensual and desirable What all this this means to you is that you are in control of how you look and the image that you want to portray, which can be a side of your personality not seen or kept private for your loved one.

It can also be a time to engage in a fantasy to enter into a realm where you can be or at least seen to be someone who’s the opposite of how many people—even you—may see as yourself in daily life. It’s a time to let your hair down and inhabit another side of your personality, if only for a brief time. In short, it’s fun.
