Couples Boudoir Q&A

July 14, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Couples boudoir is a fairly new genre and so that raises a lot of questions.  What is couples boudoir?  I've asked individuals to send me their questions about couples boudoir sessions so I could address them here.  If you have another question you would like me to answer, feel free to email it to me HERE.

 

1.  How is couples boudoir different from porn?
     Porn focuses on arousing an audience, usually through sexual acts.  Couples boudoir focuses on the couple and their relationship and does not include sexual activities.  There are ways to get a sensual feel (i.e. implied nudity, etc) without making it into a porn.

 

2.  What happens if the male client becomes aroused?
     If this happens, the male client can call a break from shooting for a bit.  Regardless of what happens, I as the photographer, will never call attention to this so to not embarrass my client.


3.  How do you make the photos look intimate and not just posed?
     In a session we will do some posed photos and then some more candid shots.  We will usually start out with the posed photos since everyone is a bit stiff in the beginning anyways.  Encouraging the couples to communicate and just have fun with the session also helps the photos to look less posed.

 

4.  How can you help clients feel comfortable if they're generally a self-conscious person?
     With any boudoir session I shoot, there is a lot of joking, laughter, and chit-chat.  I have found that this seems to break down walls and helps everyone relax.

 

5.  How would a session work with a partner who doesn't like photos taken or doesn't have a "model" physique?
     Again, with all boudoir sessions, it's about YOU.  It doesn't matter what your body looks like, it's your body.  I always strive to pose and photograph the way your body looks its best and it's no different when it comes to couples boudoir.  If your spouse prefers to play a background roll in your session, we can work with that too.  

 

When booking your session, just talk it over with your significant other.  If either of you have questions, email me or message me on my facebook profile here.  In a group chat, we can discuss any questions or concerns.  We can discuss what you would want out of your session.  Let's make your session about your relationship and your love.  These will be beautiful photos that you'll want to look back on time and time again.
