Ladies arrive donning heels, boots, and two sets of lingerie outfits or footie pajamas for a sizzling one-hour shoot that allows for midsession wardrobe changes. Textured backdrops or a full bedroom set host sultry poses, and an array of props personalizes pictures.

Following the session, photographers host images online and burn the top-30 pictures onto a disc, applying digital touchups to three of the client’s favorite selections to eradicate cosmetic blemishes and set a sexy mood with filtered lighting effects, color enhancements, or superimposed images of Bugs Bunny in a bikini.
Boudoir Kiss by Jeffery Warren Photography
Jeffery Warren picked up his first camera at a young age. Finding his passion so early on gave him time to study photography in school and immediately start cultivating years of experience. His dedication has paid off, as his portfolio today includes couple and family portraits, babies who need corporate headshots for their new office jobs, and commercial images. But Warren’s true specialties are wedding and boudoir photography. He classifies his nuptial shots into two categories: portraits and details. Small, candid glances, close-ups of rings, and shots of a bridal party's legs and hands make it into the "details" album. Wedding and boudoir portraits focus on faces and bodies with imaginative composition and bold swaths of color.
