Boudoir Photography Genre's


This is a very bright, high-contrast style, dominated by light and bright tones. Shadowed areas are minimal but still, exist, this style is beautiful if shot in black and white. Sometimes the skin is exposed brightly enough to lose some texture and definition, and that’s OK. I love this style for more romantic and playful looks.  

Just about the opposite of high-key, it’s an image style dominated by dark and black tones. Often uses hard lights to give a crisp definition, including using hard backlights to outline the edges of the body. Shadowed areas – including skin and body features – are often allowed to fall into complete darkness. Bodyscapes are a good example of low-key boudoir.  These images can be very moody and dramatic.

Bridal boudoir photography is a growing trend with new brides as a deeply personal and intimate expression of love and desire to her groom.  Like traditional boudoir photography, bridal boudoir may feature the bride in lingerie and / or nude, wearing wedding-related accouterments such as a garter or wedding veil. 

Uses a vintage, retro, or 40’s/50’s style of makeup, clothing, posing, set, props, and processing. The lighting can be very simple; often one large light source will work just fine. This allows the photographer and model to focus more attention on posing and composition. These sessions are the most tiring in terms of work that the client and I will be doing. It’s a lot of posing and holding poses and feeling those thighs burn, but the result is always worth it.

  Implied Nude
Implied Nude is just what it sounds like: images where nudity is suggested, but the viewer can’t be certain precisely how undressed the model is.  The remarkable ability of the human brain to fill in blanks and to follow paths to their natural conclusion means that even if it can’t be sure that someone is naked, a suggestion of nudity will lead it to assume she or he is.

Fine Art/Artistic Nude
In fine art nude photography, we use light, shadows, posing and creative expressions to bring out the beauty of the subject and the human body in a more dramatic artistic style. 

Couples/Seductive Boudoir
A couple's shoot is where the sexy and playful and or super sexy and intimate come together to create a beautiful keepsake.  It’s an exploration of sensuality celebrating their love and the steamy connection they have for each other.

Although the word fetish sometimes elicits visions of BDSM, leather, latex, restraints, masks, and the like, it is much more diverse than that.  It is a very personalized subject that typically incorporates the likes of the person's partner.  This style is definitely for the more adventurous. ​​​​​​​
