As anyone who's been on Instagram lately knows, boudoir photography is having a moment. Once kept mostly behind closed doors, boudoir photos are now openly shared by people of all ages and shapes. And it's not just celebrities and influencers getting in on the action—more people are turning to boudoir photography to capture their beauty and sexuality.
There are a few reasons for this surge in popularity. For one, boudoir photos are a great way to celebrate your body exactly as it is—flaws and all! In a world that's constantly telling us to change our bodies, boudoir photography is a powerful reminder that you're gorgeous just the way you are.
Additionally, boudoir photography can be incredibly empowering. It's a chance to take control of your image and present yourself to the world exactly as you want to be seen.
If you're considering getting your boudoir photos taken, now is the perfect time to do it! With so many people embracing their bodies and sharing their photos openly, there's never been more of an opportunity to celebrate yourself—and your sexuality.
So why not aim for it? Boudoir photography is the most effective way to truly see and love yourself for who you are.
I'm looking forward to 2023, which is around the corner. But before this year ends, I wanted to share some of my favorite photos with you:
First up is this stunning boudoir session photo of Anna. She looks like a goddess in this picture and I love how she confidently posed in front of the camera. Her eyes sparkle and you could almost see her soul. This is such a beautiful and sensual photo!
Next is this alluring outdoor boudoir photo of Erin in Peru. Outdoor boudoir sessions are truly unique since you're not restricted to a studio, home or hotel room. You can take your photos anywhere you want which opens up a whole world of possibilities. I love how the natural light blends with Erin's pose to create a truly ethereal look.
Next is this seductive image of Beatrice. Sometimes, just a hint of teasing produces a fantastic result!
Finally, here's a dazzling boudoir photo that I took with Melissa that I love. She looks so confident and sexy. There's something so raw and sensual about this image that captures her personality.
Thank you to my boudoir babes who allowed their photos to be shared. No photos are used without permission. You ladies deserve a lot of respect!
A memorable boudoir photo makes the subject feel confident and beautiful. It captures a moment of vulnerability and strength where she is both exposed and in control. Also, I love seeing photos that play with light and shadow, using natural light or creative lighting techniques.
As a boudoir photographer, composition is also the key to a memorable boudoir photo. I love shots that are cropped tightly around the subject or use interesting angles. For me, boudoir photography is about celebrating the human body in all its forms. The most compelling photos are the ones that convey that sense of joy and celebration and you can see them in these boudoir photos of 2022.
It's difficult to imagine what boudoir photography will look like in five years, let alone ten or twenty. But that's part of this genre's beauty—it constantly evolves to reflect the times.
I predict we'll see a continued body positivity and inclusivity trend, with more diverse representations of race, size, and gender. We'll also see more creative uses of light and shadow as photographers experiment with creative ways to create a varied atmosphere and mood.
Now, there is an increasing trend toward more accepting and empowering portrayals of women's bodies. I'm excited to see where this genre of photography leads next, and I hope to continue pushing the boundaries with my work. If you're interested in exploring your sexuality and power through boudoir photography, I encourage you to try it!
