WHAT IS BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHY
Boudoir photography is a genre of photo that’s all about empowering women through artistic photos of their physique and femininity regardless of shape, size or age. There are no rules as to how intimate one wants to be in front of the camera. It’s entirely based on the individual’s comfort level.
Over the years, I have photographed a diverse group of women from various backgrounds and professions. A boudoir photography session by me is done professionally with great care to ensure that we create the best possible results. It is my job to help you feel safe and at ease regardless of how shy you are. It will be fully guided from start to finish to discover your best angles which you don’t typically get to see through a mirror.
WHO IS THIS FOR
You will only be this young, once.
‘ Vulnerability is the precise measurement of courage. ‘ - Dr. Brené Brown.
It’s for you, you don’t need validation. Through a boudoir photography session, you may be celebrating a physical milestone you’ve just achieved, going to fight a life changing illness like breast cancer, want to create a special gift for your future-self or even to celebrate being free from a bad relationship. You may be struggling with the new found role in motherhood and along the way of always serving others, you’ve forgotten who you were before all this madness began.
Some women want to regain that strong and confident vibe they have hidden all this while on the inside. It’s like a very personal diary but with a more accurate narrative of how you really look. Through a mirror, you have a limited perspective about yourself and often in a self-conscious and critical way no thanks to the molds put out by the society and advertisements. In the process, you will confront vulnerabilities but you will come out feeling more confident about yourself and your body.
Each individual is unique and same goes to your personal motivations. I like to help in exploring this so we will create photographs finding the real you and what you stand for.
WHY I DO IT
Boudoir photography is a genre that fascinates me because of the vast creative space it provides in each shoot and the meaning it carries. I like how the process of the shoots expand my artistic vocabulary, allows me to grow as a better photographer and learning a little more about women.
The first boudoir photography series I create was for a friend in 2008. Over the years, I have had the privilege and trust to photographing many women and it has been a very fulfilling journey especially when I receive very good feedback on my work and how the photos help women feel empowered.
Through many conversations with females around this topic and joining international boudoir photography communities, I learnt so much more and got interested to do even better. With the support from my wife, I’m eager to explore where this journey as a boudoir photographer takes me. I am a member of the Association of International Boudoir Photographers.
