Pillow talk – Boudoir Photography by Johannesburg photographer

5 Apr

Every woman has this desire to look glamorous and sexy, all while maintaining her class and sophistication, and lets face it – it’s an awesome confidence booster.

When you immortalize that radiant seduction in photos – you have a constant reminder of the powerhouse beauty that you are and what better setting than the one place in your house where you aren’t just the mom or just the wife?

Boudoir: is a lady’s private bedroom, sitting room or dressing room. Emphasis on the lady.

Commonly boudoir or pin up shoots have been categorized as risqué or tastelessly erotic – bordering on pornography perhaps – but this is not the case at all.  It is timeless and captures the intimate beauty of a woman, man or couple in a setting they themselves are comfortable with.

Growing in popularity, the idea of contemporary boudoir photography is to take variations of candid and posed photographs of a glamorous looking and confident feeling person partly clothed or in lingerie.

Nudity is more often implied than explicit – leaving much to the imagination of your significant other and maintaining the grace; and as mentioned sophistication of being a lady.

Commercially the boudoir or pin up shoot is marketed for brides to surprise their future husbands by gifting the images on or before their wedding day. A taste of things to come if you will.

Other motivations or inspiration for boudoir photography shoots include anniversaries, birthdays, Valentine’s Day, weight loss regimes, maternity, or just to celebrate the beautiful woman in you.

Think Bettie Page, Mae West, Clara Bow and Jean Harlow – all photographed in boudoir styled shoots capturing their elegance and sensuality all in one photo.

Sweet Judy Garland and her Ruby Red slippers were immortalized in the form of a pin up shoot in the 1940’s and still she is a beloved silver screen icon.  Twiggy had her very own pin up shoot, waif frame and all. Cindy Crawford, Raquel Welch, Brigitte Bardot, the list is endless – all woman who have had their sensual beauty captured and all of whom have had their moment in the sun.

What is your excuse for not having your moment in the light?
