If I have body image issues, will I like my boudoir photos if I don’t like my butt, thighs, legs, tummy, boobs, face, hands, neck, weight, eyes … ?

Would you like to have a boudoir portrait sitting and you aren’t particularly fond of one, two or a few of your ‘beauty’ features?

Well, if you are a woman having your photo taken, and aren’t too fond of bits of yourself and how the bits may photograph, you are in good company indeed.  Even an ex Miss Universe hates having her own face photographed ( see “I hate my face, I hate my face in picures, I don’t like being photographed…” ).  Now, we would expect a Miss Universe to be fairly beautiful, right?  And of course, she is beautiful.  And, of course she photographs beautifully.

Even Miss Universe is a woman, and has a womanly self esteem issue, vis-a-vis how she may look in photos.

So why not you, right?

With Selective Focus & Framing, Boudoir Photography draws viewer eyes toward your strongest features & most sensual aspects

Ok, now for more good news…

While most or all of us have some body image issues, rest assured, everyone who comes through our Phoenix Boudoir Photography Studios has some very attractive features as well.

What is particularly terrific about photography is, seeing is believing, and with photography, a professional photographic artist at the top of their game can selectively highlight your very best features while deemphasizing your more challenging bits.

What can a great boudoir photographer do to have you looking your very best?

Tricks to making you look your best in boudoir portraits

  • Professional Hair and Makeup Styling
  • Professional Set Use
  • Professional Wardrobe Styling and Adroit Prop Use
  • Expert control of Lighting and Shadows
  • Selective Use of Focus and Framing
  • Retouching and Post Processing
  • Keeping it Fun

As with the fine art sample image here, there are a number of ways which your photographer has to bring out your very best boudoir outcomes.

The use of qualified stylists is the first  key way in insuring your very best outcomes ( see How important is professional styling for the best boudoir photography session outcomes? ).

By using qualified professional stylists, for hair and makeup, your pretty face and hair will be looking their very best.  So when a great shot is taken of your face, your best features are portrayed at their best.

As with the reference image here, just well made lips with the right amount of sexy hair can make for a great boudoir portrait.

Use of well laid out sets give lots of options for sexy backgrounds to enhance the mood of your look.  These can be elaborate boudoirs in well appointed homes, fine hotel rooms, or can be done with simple backdrops, as the example here with the black background in this studio boudoir photo.

Wardrobe styling and prop use are also key.

Lingerie which highlights your best features, while boosting or covering your challenging areas can really ratchet up your look substantially.

Or, prop styling, something as simple as a bit of satin, gauze or other bit of fabric, can be arrayed in ways to hide the mommy tummy and lift the twin girls, both to their best advantages.

Then there are the photographic magical elements.   Books have been written about what makes for great boudoir photography.  This is an ancient, current and growing field of art and study.

In a nutshell, your photographer will put in light your best features, and will hide in darkness or behind other bits of props, or bits of your body, the challenging bits.

Through posing, technical choice of lenses and focus, only your best features will be highlighted.

Your challenges will be toned down, hidden, or just plain invisible.

You will look awesome.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and a great boudoir photographer has a passion for and extensive knowledge of beauty.  They will see your beauty even before you do, and will show you and the world how beautiful you truly are in your boudoir photos.

They will keep your boudoir session fun, professional and very rewarding, when you see how beautiful you really can be in your boudoir portraits, that is the real reward.

Before the final images are released, they will probably be retouched.

Here, the photographer will insure that minor blemishes will be reduced or removed, a bit of push or pull may happen here or there.  Again, many books are written about retouching.

The thing is, retouching has been happening for as long as there have been sculptors, painters and photographers, to amp up their art works, just that last little bit.

The goal at our boudoir studios is to have you looking almost as beautiful as your lover sees you.

No photo can truly be as attractive or beautiful as a living, vibrant, flesh and blood woman.

The images must stand on their own, often without context.  So, professional photographers will edit your images and print them to display in ways which are accurate representations of an aspect of you.

Great boudoir photography will portray you at an instant in time, looking your most beautiful.

You boudoir photography experience may well be one of the most uplifting and fun times of your life.

Most of our clients sachet away with an uplift in mood and self image that is immediate and long lasting.

All women are beautiful.  After a boudoir sitting, our clients know they can and do look beautiful in pictures.
