If you're here because you're considering a Boudoir shoot, let me start by emphatically encouraging you to pull the trigger. (no pun intended)
Now, you may be considering this because your loved one has a birthday coming up, perhaps you have an anniversary around the corner, Christmas, Valentine's Day, or want to give your man the ultimate wedding present (because believe me, it is!) These are all perfect reasons to book your boudoir session. But, even more importantly...
As a woman, honoring you and your beauty with a boudoir shoot is one of the most powerful gifts you can give yourself. Gorgeous images immortalizing your beauty for an eternity, you'll find turn out to be a most prized possession. But that's not all, the experience in and of itself many have found to be life changing. A truly liberating event, every woman deserves to experience it, whether you're 18 or 80.. a size 2 or a size 22. We woman are all beautiful and deserve to be celebrated.
I have professionally shot Boudoir for over 6 years now, I have shot Boudoir at large women's events (Lobella) and I have shot women from all over the planet, I have taught Boudoir at large photography seminars, and I along with LA Boudoir photographer, Deborah Kolb have even put out a Boudoir posing guide. Let's just say, Boudoir is my thang.
It is such a rewarding part of my job, to see women open up and unleash their sexy. Many women are nervous about their shoot, or haven't felt sexy in a long time... some even feel that, that's just not them. Well let me tell you, I don't care who you are, there's a sexy vixen in you waiting to be unleashed and I'd love to help awaken her! A most liberating experience for any woman, EVERY single woman, I've ever shot, has left with a renewed feeling of confidence and sexy, one I'm sure their man (if they had one) reeped the benefits of once they returned home!
Not only that, but gorgeous images, you, beautifully captured, on your best day to cherish for all of eternity. While I encourage boudoir at any age, you'll never be as young as you are today and there is no guarantee of tomorrow.
So give yourself a most deserved and most beautiful gift. The gift of eternal beauty.

The Ultimate Boudoir Posing Guide

Jenna Lee & Deborah Kolb
Variety is key, and on a typical Boudoir shoot you will go through 3 outfits. Many women like to start out with an evening gown or cocktail dress to get more comfortable in front of the camera. From there they slip into their favorite lingerie outfit, and finish with a between the sheets sesh. Other women like to bring their favorite hunny's shirt and start out in that.
When considering outfit options I want you to think about these words - Timeless & Classic. My style is sexy, classic, and timeless. This means stick to the basics: blacks, reds, whites, champagnes, lace, silks, satins, pearls. Stay away from obnoxious patterns, and please do not wear anything that will require photoshopping, because that type of retouching will cost ya extra. ;)
Options are limitless, but do wear something you're comfortable in. I'd rather you bring too much than too little. After all, digging through and creating the outfits and looks is half the fun! ;)
