If you thought boudoir photography was just for twenty somethings, you’d be very mistaken. I see more forty and fifty something women, and especially women celebrating their 50th birthday with a boudoir photo shoot than any other age. Kim, photographed, was celebrating her sixtieth birthday and it was a fabulous shoot.
It’s brilliant to see so many women hitting that wonderful age where they’re ignoring their body hang-ups (we all have them) and saying “Actually, I kind of like me and I’m doing this while I still feel good.”
As a boudoir photographer it is amazing to have a woman tell me “I like this about my body, but not this so much”, because then I have something to work with. My client can relax knowing that I will emphasise what she likes and hide what she doesn’t want seen. As she begins to trust me, she starts to relax and enjoy the shoot, her personality shines through, her eyes start to dance and the magic happens. It just comes together – it’s that awesome point in a boudoir shoot that just flows. She feels good, she looks great and the photographs sing. Magic.
