The Modern definition:

Typically shot in a Michael Lagman studio or luxury hotel suites, it has become fashionable to create a set of sensual images in a"boudoir style". The most common manifestation of contemporary boudoir photography is to take candid and posed photographs of the subject partly clothed or in lingerie. Nudity is more often implied than explicit. The genre is often used for brides to surprise their future husbands by gifting the images on or before their wedding day. Other inspiration for boudoir photography include anniversaries, birthdays, Valentine's Day, weight loss regimes, maternity, other form of body change and for servicemen and women overseas.

10 Reasons to do Boudoir: 


1.  If you have never had a professional photo shoot then you are in for an addicting surprise!  Makeup + Hair + Lights + Photoshop + Professional Photographer = Amazing results and a fantastic look.

2.  Yes, you can be naked or implied and look great.  Boudoir photographers knows how to get you to look sexy on camera.  Photographers work with women every day that want to hide certain bits and flaunt others.  It is their job to know every pose in the book that is going to do this.  By the way, you DO NOT have to get naked!

3.  You look perfect today, and today is the day to flaunt it.  There is no sense waiting until you lose the baby weight, get the boob job or can afford the right lingerie for the shoot.  If you think you are going to look better in 6 months you are wrong, because like I said, you look perfect today.

4.  It makes the perfect gift for your boyfriend/husband/lover/girlfriend…Or even better just for you!  

5.  Putting together the outfits is so much fun!  You get to choose who you want to be for an afternoon.  Sexy black lace, schoolgirl, pinup, bridal white, the choices are endless.  Plus you get to shop for something very sexy.
