As a boudoir photographer I have the opportunity of photographing women with a variety of different body types, ethnicities, and backgrounds. No matter how different each boudoir client is, these women do share something in common. Each one of them wants to feel and look their absolute best during their boudoir photoshoot. It is our job to make sure that they not only feel comfortable, but beautiful as well. We have to learn how to work with all types of varying personalities and know the proper questions to ask and words to say to make them feel beautiful and have an enjoyable experience. Not only is it our job to create beautiful imagery for our clients, but we also have to provide them with an incredible experience. Boudoir photography can be an intimidating experience to most women and it is up to us to help inspire some confidence.
