What is a Boudoir Session and Why Should You Try It?
Boudoir Sessions are becoming increasingly popular amongst a widening demographic - particularly as a gift for a significant other on your wedding day, to celebrate an anniversary or as a unique (and sexy!) birthday surprise.
Boudoir Sessions are also a fantastic way of embracing and enjoying your womanhood. These sessions are designed to capture the beauty of a subject and to help you get in touch with yourself, show off your body and gain self-confidence. The best part is that you’ll also leave with a selection of beautiful and professional photographs to take home and enjoy forever!
Whilst boudoir may have risqué associations, it’s actually a brilliant way to combat stereotypical and negative views on beauty. Forget cliché cover girls and airbrushed magazine spreads, Boudoir photos show off the unique beauty in every woman. No matter what your body type, age, gender expression, sexuality or specific needs, boudoir is for everyone and anyone. It is an uplifting and empowering experience that lets you really invest in yourself.
So, if you’re interested in surprising your partner with a tasteful and seductive gift, marking a milestone in your life or simply treating yourself to a day of empowerment and pampering – Boudoir Sessions are most definitely for you. In case you need a little more convincing, let’s unpack some further details…
‘Boudoir’ is a French word meaning a lady’s private bedroom or dressing room. In photography terms, boudoir refers to a style in which subjects pose for photographs in lingerie or partially clothed. The images are tasteful and the nudity is typically implied, rather than explicit.
That being said, Boudoir photos can range from intimate and flirtatious to straight up sexy – it depends entirely on your preferences and comfort level. Boudoir photography can be inspired by a certain aesthetic, theme or idea – you really can make it completely your own.
Alongside being left with an array of stunning photographs, a Boudoir Session will provide you with the opportunity to really celebrate being a woman and to capture the essence of you. Whether you are super shy or quietly confident before you arrive, you are guaranteed to walk away with a new spring in your step after spending the day with a team of experts trained in bringing out your best!
On the day – whilst you sip on wine and indulge in some chocolates - hair and makeup professionals will be on hand to pamper you from head to toe. As this day is all about you, the experts will listen to your preferences and create a look that suits your tastes and perfectly showcases your personality. From natural beauty to super glamorous – anything goes when it comes to Boudoir.
At Yuliya Panchenko Photography, you will enjoy a full hour of pampering before the shoot begins. The hair and makeup artists will talk to you about the look you want to achieve and advise you on your outfit choices. When it comes to your attire – boudoir photographers recommend picking something that makes you feel confident, comfortable and sexy. Bring along a few options, including a pair of killer heels and some complementary accessories – having options and variety will ensure you get a great selection of photos throughout the session!
Your friendly photographer will guide you through the shoot, suggesting poses, helping you get into position and capturing your beauty. Your stunning images can then be enjoyed in the form of a polished magazine, an Italian leather signature album or a gorgeous folio box with matted prints. Whatever you choose – you will have some of your most beautiful moments preserved forever!
