Boudoir Photography

5 reasons why every woman at least one time should go boudoir

Portrait photography is always extremely challenging, for the photographer as well as for the model, even when everyone who is involved is fully clothed. But bringing things into the boudoir can be an entirely different challenge.

For a woman, a first-time boudoir photo shoot can be very overwhelming. Stripping to your lingerie in a bedroom in the presence of a photographer is a daunting task. No matter how much self-confidence you have, it takes some guts to strip and be comfortable in front of the camera, alone or with your partner. But the outcome of the boudoir photo session will outweigh the cons of the uncomfortable feelings. As a woman or couple having this on your bucket list you will be thrilled with the result.

This article serves as a reference to why a woman should push her limits and should book a boudoir session. Today!

A dark, cold evening mid-January. I’m trying to maneuver the car through the heavy evening traffic in the hearth of Brussels. May if I can take a speed lane I still can make it on time for my shoot with Kate Ri at 6:30 pm.

6:20 pm. Still ten minutes to find a parking spot and hurry up to the shooting location.

I will meet Kate in a Brussels guesthouse called “Louise sur Cour”. The Neo-classical style house dates from the 19th century but is renovated with great attention paid to conserving heritage.

Just in time (as usual), I’m at the guest house’s front door, texting Kate that I’ll wait outside. Once entered, I discover what a wonderful place the building is: a successful combination of 19th century architecture with a respectful and daring renovation, decorated with art works and exceptional furniture.

Situated at the second floor, Kate’s bedroom seems to be pretty common in regard to the rest of the building. But then she shows me the hidden bathroom. A paradise to use as a shooting location.

Enjoy the pictures as much as I did when creating them.
