A no-pressure studio shoot at my studio at Bentwaters, Suffolk

why boudoir photography

Boudoir photography, a form of photography, captures a model in a romantic or sensual ambience, predominantly in a bedroom or private setting. The photographic artistry of boudoir photography exudes an essence of glamour, intimacy, and seductiveness. Often preferred for gifting to a romantic partner or to celebrate one’s individual beauty and confidence, boudoir photography has become a popular choice for capturing timeless moments.

The reasons behind indulging in boudoir photography are subjective and vary from person to person. While some people opt for this form of self-expression, others commemorate significant events, such as a wedding or a milestone birthday party. The multifarious nature of boudoir photography is due to its ability to evoke a wide range of emotions, feelings, and expressions, which makes it a unique and compelling art form.

is boudoir photography worth it

There is a multitude of reasons why someone might opt for boudoir photography. It is a personal decision to engage in an intimate and suggestive photo shoot, and the reasons behind it will vary based on individual circumstances and goals. For some, the experience of having their boudoir photographs taken can be a way to boost their self-esteem and gain confidence in their own skin. Others might choose to gift their boudoir photos to a loved one.

It is crucial to understand that the value of boudoir photography will ultimately depend on how personally meaningful the experience is and the amount of financial investment one is willing to make. It is essential to take into account the cost of hiring a professional photographer and purchasing additional products or services, such as hair and makeup styling, prints or digital copies of the photographs, framing, and albums. Boudoir photography can be a significant financial commitment, and one should be comfortable with the cost before pursuing it.

Secondly, it is crucial to research and chooses a photographer with whom one feels comfortable and who has a good reputation. Boudoir photography requires a high level of trust between the subject and the photographer, making it vital to find a photographer who is respectful and professional. To get a better sense of a photographer’s style and work, one may want to ask for references or check out their portfolio.


Boudoir photography, an enigmatic and alluring genre, seeks to captivate and seduce through the orchestration of suggestive and sexually provocative poses and settings. This type of art is meant to evoke intimacy and sensuality, often taking place in private and intimate settings such as a bedroom or dressing room, with the intention of being enjoyed solely by the subject or as a special gift for a partner.

A tasteful and respectful representation of the subject’s beauty and sensuality is paramount to the success of boudoir photography. This art form relies on capturing the perfect balance between pleasing aesthetics and respectful presentation to achieve the desired effect. Some individuals participate in boudoir photoshoots to celebrate and express their own sexuality and physicality, while others view it as a creative outlet for unique and artistic expression, or simply as a heartfelt gift for a loved one.

It is important to note that boudoir photography can hold vastly different intentions and motivations, as it is a subjective experience that varies from person to person. The purpose and outcome of such photography ultimately depend on the desires and goals of the subject, making it a personal and intimate experience.

It was in January 2013 that I started, originally focusing on wedding and commercial work. The decision was made by me in February 2019 to move into my own studio at Bentwaters, where I began working as a Boudoir Photographer. Since Boudoir photography was growing at an exponential rate, I felt that it was crucial for my work to have a professional base. Having enjoyed and taken great pride in my previous work, it appears that Boudoir Photography is where I am strongest.

What is boudoir?

There are various types of Boudoir photography, each of which is intended primarily for the private enjoyment of the subjects and their romantic partners. It involves taking intimate, sensual, romantic, or sometimes erotic images of the subject in a photographic studio, bedroom, or private dressing room.

A distinctive characteristic of this form of nude photography is that it tends to be more suggestive than explicit when it comes to nudity and sexuality, which is different from glamour and art nude photography. These images are produced by subjects who don’t regularly model and are designed to be seen by as few people as possible. They are also intended to remain under the control of the subject, rather than being seen by a large audience.
