Boudoir Photography: An Art Form Worth Pouting For
Boudoir shoots traditionally took place in fancy hotel rooms, where photographers could take advantage of the lavish backdrops, soft lighting, and a steady intake of beluga caviar. Find out how to best prepare for these sensual shoots with Groupon’s guide to boudoir photography.
The term boudoir is a word with dual translations—as a noun, it’s a lady’s bedroom, and as a verb, it means to pout in French—and boudoir photo shoots draw on both definitions. Photographers frequently combine the lacy underthings and silky sheets of a bedchamber with coquettish poses filtered through a dreamy, soft focus. But although it’s most commonly associated with corset-clad women draped across a velvet chaise longue, the realm of boudoir has come to embrace everything from the beauty of the pregnant form to the rediscovered femininity of a breast-cancer survivor.
Different settings, equipment, outfits, and occasions breed infinite variability into boudoir photography, but certain rules of thumb can help subjects get ready for their date with the lens. Although some preshoot primping—such as mani-pedis, false eyelashes, and hairstyling appointments—can pay big dividends, most photographers discourage preparatory tanning and are particularly wary of spray tanning, as the camera and lights can exaggerate any orange tint in the tanning solution. Instead, many boudoir specialists recommend an all-over application of lotion or moisturizer before hitting the set.
When it comes to wardrobe, the famously slimming properties of black and other dark hues can help minimize certain parts of the body, whereas white and lighter colors can have the opposite effect. Regardless of what’s worn during the shoot, virtually all studios ask clients to arrive wearing loose clothing to prevent straps and seams leaving marks on the skin.
Two decades of experience in portrait and commercial photography have refined Trish Taylor's artistic instincts, which she brandishes at a studio that sits 20 minutes south of downtown Houston. Photography shoots capture subjects at their most confident, and commercial sessions depict fashion, food, and architecture with a vivid professional aesthetic. Seasoned photographer Trish Taylor and the team at Imaging Studios put clients at ease during fun and exciting photo sessions. Before the shoot, clients speak with a staff member to discuss preferences, goals, and effective eye flutters. The photographer guides each subject through a series of poses at the studio according to comfort level, incorporating props such as jewelry, food, or toy-encrusted vacuum cleaners.
