Originally a still-life art form, boudoir photography switched to human subjects when clothiers stopped making apple-size garter belts. Bite the fruits of seduction with today's Groupon: for $69, you get a 30-minute boudoir photo session (a $100 value) with complimentary champagne and five professional photos on CD (a $200 value) at Boudoir by Wallflower (a $300 total value). Sessions take place in-studio at Boudoir by Wallflower's East Front studio.
Aaron and Christina Patton, Boudoir by Wallflower's professionally trained husband-and-wife team, craft opulent two-dimensional fields in which wives, girlfriends, brides, or brides-to-be can safely detonate their inner bombshell, along with any other sexy ordinance. After a complimentary glass of champagne loosens up the back's arching muscles, the 30-minute boudoir photo session choreographs ravishing poses throughout the spacious photo studio and its eleven different tableaux, plus a hidden room that contains a warp pipe to World Five. Aaron orchestrates a complex harmony of lights, and Christina draws on her dance background to create lithe, sensual poses. Though the studio has a catalog of more than 300 pieces in various sizes, Boudoir by Wallflower recommends subjects bring their own lingerie or low-cut hazmat suits.
Once the camera lens is sufficiently fogged by smoldering gazes, Aaron and Christina give each shot a magazine-style makeover that smoothes skin, brightens eyes, and edits out treasure maps scribbled on lower backs. The top five digital prints are promptly archived on a CD, giving its subject an emergency confidence boost and its recipient an incentive to practice their Tex Avery cartoon-wolf impression.
Boudoir by Wallflower
Husband-and-wife photography team Christina and Aaron Patton established Boudoir by Wallflower, a studio dedicated almost exclusively to boudoir photography, to capture the beauty in women of all shapes and sizes. In an op-ed for WomensFocus, the Pattons described boudoir as "about building confidence and discovering a side of yourself that you have either forgotten, never knew existed, or just don't let out enough." During shoots, the photographers provide their subjects with 12 different sets and a collection of more than 500 garments, including lingerie, shoes, and peep-toe tube socks. In this assemblage of video confessions, clients speak to the Pattons' professionalism, their experience with boudoir, and how comfortable they felt during their shoots.
