Boudoir Photography
27th April 2011 - 0 comments

A boudoir is a lady's private bedroom, sitting room or dressing room. The term derives from the French verb bouder, meaning "to pout".
"Boudoir Photography" is a selection of images of a female dressed in a manner which is appropriate for her private room. I've heard a lot of discussions among professional photographers with regards to this side of their business, and in particular how popular it's becoming.....apparently there are thousands of brides in Ireland whom create an album of "boudoir images" which they present to their "husband to be" the night before their wedding.
I must admit that I had researched this type of photography.....but it didn't take me long to realize that as a male photographer, it would be quite difficult for a female to come into my studio, and within a matter of minutes, expect her to be posing.....possibly in a seductive and intimate manner....very quickly. This is something that I know I wouldn't be comfortable with, and in all likelihood, neither would the female subject!!
My friend and associate of Boudoir Girls Natalie Greer however specializes in this form of photography and I recently had the opportunity to assist her on a shoot. As I use the Canon 5D mark 2 SLR, Natalie wanted some video footage of a shoot to use marketing her business, so this was the main reason why I was present (honest to God Elaine {my wife!!})
I must admit to being a small bit tongue tied when the shoot started (....well it's not everyday that I'm confronted with a model in lingerie!!!) and it's easy to see why Natalie has become so competent at the work that she does. She built up a rapport very quickly with her subject and really helped her to come out of her shy shell. At all times she gave polite direction to the "boudoir girl" to help her get the most from the shoot while at the same time helping her to preserve her modesty. Natalie is also exceptionally good at creating themed shoots and this particular shoot was themed on Marie Antoinette. Well done Natalie and Sharon, you were both brilliant!!!
Below are a couple of images from the shoot.
