- for Images as unique as you
Compared to Glamour-sessions, Boudoir Sessions are more personal, more daring and more focused on the 'sexy' in you.
A common reason to book your Boudoir session is that you book for yourself, to celebrate, to mark a milestone and to feel good about yourself.
Another reason is to book a Boudoir session as a gift to your partner - whether the shoot is for him or her or you want to give your partner a beautiful gift i.e. a printed album of your own Boudoir session.
Whatever the reason behind booking is, we will make sure your pictures are sexy, tasteful and that you will love them.
Questions? here are a few answers . . .
Glamour Portraits vs Boudoir Photography - whats the difference ?
The lines between Galmour- and Boudoir Photography are a bit blurred and also depend on your comfort level.
Galmour Photography focuses on the beauty and femininity of the subject, creating a photos with great expression with a touch of sensuality. In general elegant, wardorbe is worn, emphasizing curves and form without being too revealing.
Glamour images are meant to be shared with a friends and family and can easily be posted on social media or be printed and displayed in the livingroom.
Boudoir Photography also focuses on beauty but is in general a bit more revealing - either directly or in a playful manner leaving things to the imagination.
During a Boudoir session the model often wears more revealing cloth or lingerie, posing in private locations like a bathroom, bedroom or other personal areas.
Glamour images are typically intended for onself and to be shared with a romantic partner.

Boudoir Sessions - how do they work?
For a Boudoir shoot we start with a consultation, where we get to know each and talk open about your ideas, comfort level and expectations.
After the consultation, we provide you with a quote, detailing what is in involved and the exact cost of the shoot. In this quote we will list in detail what is included in the package (i.e. Hair-MakeUp yay/nay, location rental if applicable and so on)
The photo shoot itself can take place almost anywhere – our professional photo studio, a rented venue, or any other location.
We have done shoots in our studio in clients homes, on a farm, in a repair-shop - there are many loctions that can be used. It all depends on the style you want and on your comfort level.
During the shoot we will give you directions for posing and guide you through your experience.
After the shoot is finished we will edit your imahges and , depending on the option chosen, either upload your images in a gallery for download or order your printed items (i.e. albums, enlarged prints for hanging on a wall,....).
