Over the past few months, I've had the opportunity to photograph a couple of boudoir sessions. Right now, you're either picking your jaw up off of the ground or you're scratching your head in confusion.
"Boudoir" comes from an old-timer description of a woman's sitting/dressing room or sleeping quarters. Nowadays, boudoir photography consists of a session wherein a woman wears whatever she feels sexy in (lingerie, an old T-shirt, heels, you name it, it can be done. It's all about the feeling of sexiness, which is different for everyone). It can take place in a bedroom or hotel room and, at least with Wendy Zook Photography, is done tastefully and comfortably.
Boudoir sessions with WZP typically last 1-2 hours and cost the same as any other standard sitting fee. We do 3-4 different outfits. It's all about creating fun shapes with your body -- standing, laying down, sitting, etc. I can provide make-up samples and tips ahead of time for hair, outfits and location.
It's all about a comfort thing, so we'll make it as fun as possible.
Boudoir sessions will get you an album of about 20 photos to present to your significant other for your wedding day, anniversary, birthday or just because!
I will never publish photos from these sessions in any online format, so contact me for more information or for samples.
This is an exciting new route for my photography and I hope to have you join me on this adventure!
