Boudoir Photography Party How-To

Style three “Sets” and Prep your Equipment

That means each “set” should be a unique location, even if you’re in a tiny hotel room. Move beyond the bed for two set ups: try gorgeous backlighting in front of the window, in front of a full length mirror, at the vanity in the bathroom, in the hotel shower, on a chaise lounge, at the hotel suite’s front door, laying on the floor or on top of the coffee table – I’ve tried it all. Find what works and looks great well in advance, start visualizing your ideas, move furniture, remove distractions, and style it up.

Boudoir Shoot From The Customer’s Point Of View

A boudoir client gives some tips to others who are considering doing a boudoir photo shoot.

From the article:

As a mom, there are very few opportunities to look hot. We have the occasional date night or the night out with the girls. But even those are usually rushed and we’re rarely able to channel our old foxy selves.

A few months ago, I was offered an opportunity to shake off the “mom” role and try something new. Since I’m always up for a challenge and thought it sounded like fun, I agreed to try a “boudoir photo shoot” courtesy of Focal Impulse Studio in Boston.

Boudoir / Pin-Up Photography Gaining Popularity Among Military Wives

Hi There!  I found this article focusing on how pin-up photography is gaining popularity among military wives and wanted to share it with you. Photographer Angelita Ballada is featured.  From the article:

Boudoir photography harkens back to the pinup photos taken during the World War II era. The trend is popular in Fayetteville, Ballada said, among Army wives such as Bonnagio who have their photos taken in a tasteful but flirty fashion. Often, they’re gifts for their husbands who are deployed overseas.

“That’s actually 95 percent of everybody that comes to me,” Ballada said. “It doesn’t need to be sexy poses. It can be just natural. It’s all about how you portray yourself. You don’t need to wear lingerie to be have boudoir photography. You can wear a sexy dress and heels as long as its about yourself, about your body, about your beauty.”
