Why?, because "YOU" are worth it.


What is a boudoir portrait ? you may ask:

Boudoir photography and a little of it’s history:

The boudoir was a woman’s private bathing and dressing room which was derived from the French word bouder which translates to sulk or pout or adjective boudeur, sulking. So the boudoir became the private, no men allowed room, unless with an invitation.

Boudoir photography typically portrays the woman in a sensual, sexy and alluring manner, some times partially clothed with feminine lingerie of lace or silk satin, corsets, stockings and suspenders etc. Sometimes the boudoir image of a woman can be implied nude or even full nude in a mildly erotic manner depending on the desires and wishes of the subject.

Boudoir photography first came a subject of the naughty erotic post cards or the peeping Tom, what the butler saw, mutoscopes found in the arcades on promenades during the Victorian era, some times featuring the current famous female movie stars of the black and white movies of the time.

It is not always a woman only land with the outcome of some amazing male photographers creating very beautiful life changing boudoir images of woman such as the boudoir and portrait photographer Bruce Smith.
