Bringing Sexy Back–Where is Justin Timberlake When You Need Him? | Boudoir Photography Saratoga

Boudoir Photography Saratoga

Bringing sexy back–more than just a Justin Timberlake song.

So last week I did a post about boudoir/glamour photography.  This is not the glamour photography of the 80’s/90’s with feather boas, white gloves, Tammy Faye Baker make-up and ginormous hair.  Let’s be clear about that up front.

Boudoir:  A woman’s dressing room, bedroom or sitting room.

I think boudoir photography is more about really tasteful portraits of yourself after having your hair and make-up professionally done.   I think it is about celebrating your femininity–which is more powerful than just your sexuality.  And I most definitely do not think you need to dress like a dominiatrix to be sexy–just to clear that up.  Although I will not judge if that is what you want to do.  As women, I think we spend so much time giving of ourselves that we forget to give to ourselves.  So why not treat yourself to a day out, have some fun and rejuvenate yourself?  If you are on the timid side, bring a friend or sister.  Maybe you will uncover some part of yourself that has been a tad bit dormant from being stuck in the day to day grind.  If I could come up with a better name for it instead of Boudoir/Glamour Photography, I would call it something else.  Maybe Femme Fatale?

Lighting, posing and proper lingerie all combine to create good boudoir photos.

Whether you want something innocent and soft, or more playful or sexy–a consultation before your boudoir photography session is important.
