About the Shoot

Know more about boudoir photography, what it can do for you & why you should do it!

What is Boudoir Photography?

There are so many MISCONCEPTIONS about boudoir photography which makes it difficult for people who want to do it to actually do it.

Just looking at it would give you all sorts of assumptions and not to mention society also adds to that set of misconceptions: 

  • Boudoir photography is just nude shots.
  • Boudoir photos are only shot on the bed.
  • My photos are going to be all over the internet.
  • Boudoir photography is for confident young girls.
  • I have to have a man to gift it to.

The list goes on but you do not have to worry about that. Instead, focus on the things that you need to know.

  • Boudoir is for people of all shapes and sizes!
  • Boudoir is for every gender and sexuality.
  • Age does not define you! Coco Chanel said:

“You can be gorgeous at thirty, charming at forty, and irresistible for the rest of your life.”

  • You do not need confidence or experience! That’s something that I’ll make sure you have after the  boudoir photoshoot.
  • Photos taken during your boudoir photography session are safe and confidential. It’s for your own pleasure!

Boudoir photography is something personal. People who choose to book a boudoir shoot with us or any other boudoir photographer in Australia don’t do it because they are models and they look good. They do it to feel good & that confidence makes you look good!

Do it for yourself, you deserve it and you are worth the investment!

Now it’s time to chat about how Boudoir Photography can change your life and the way you see yourself.

Before and After

Let’s set things straight. People who book boudoir photography sessions are not models. They also aren’t your typical women with hourglass figures. In fact, most of them are people that you see everyday, having an 9-5 job, taking care of kids, or even the woman that you see when you look in the mirror.
A lot of people find it difficult to see themselves in a positive light which makes it harder to feel confident. 

The difference is, these women decided to step out of their comfort zones, took the leap of faith to treat themselves and invest in themselves.
These women decided to start embracing all the flaws and beauties they have, appreciating the entirety of themselves and loving themselves more.

As women, we always find reasons to put off doing something that we’ve always wanted to do for ourselves. I get it. Sometimes it’s difficult to justify spending time and money on ourselves. Instead, our children, our family etc. are always more of a priority. 

You have to start realising that you are important too! You deserve to be loved and appreciated. You are worth the investment in yourself. 

Boudoir photography is a lifetime investment in your self confidence, self-worth and self love that will change the way you look at yourself & more importantly the way you choose to present yourself in daily life.
