5 Reasons why Boudoir photos make the best gift for your significant other...


Well, first of all, you may actually be asking yourself, “What the heck is Boudoir?”. Boudoir is a French word and is a little private space exclusively used by women. However Boudoir is also a style of photography which has become very popular in the US and Europe over the years. It’s a little bit more intimate than a Glamour session and it’s a unique empowering experience too. This is why these sessions are so popular. Women want to look gorgeous, feminine and sexy and be more confident. However their first reason to book a session is usually to make a gift for their significant other. Looking gorgeous, feeling confident, capturing amazing images, there is no better gift for you and your other half. Here are a few reasons why those images make such great gifts.

1/ Get a confidence boost!

This is definitely one of the best reason to experience a Boudoir session. You need to do it for yourself first. Your partner will love your images but he’ll love your confidence more. He believes in you, he finds you amazing, beautiful, smart, funny, creative…. He just wishes you could see it too! With your hair and makeup done, you already feel transformed. Next you get to feel like a super model and when you see your first image, you just can’t believe it’s you. And then you finally realise how beautiful you are. This is when the magic happens….

2/ He’s going to be surprised!

You might want to offer him Boudoir images for his birthday, your anniversary, your wedding, for Valentine’s day… whatever the occasion, he will never expect these kind of images from you! Can you already imagine his face, opening your boudoir album? He’s going to be surprised, speechless and sooooo proud! Because this is like skydiving, this is not an experience you do easily. You need to be brave, you need to overcome being so self-conscious and be willing to stand half naked in front of a stranger. But the reward is amazing. And he will cherish these photos for a looooong time….


3/ Timeless Memories

Unfortunately we won’t be 25 forever, right! We are human, we get older and older. And it’s fine, this is how life works. But capturing your youthful beauty can be priceless. Imagine being 70, with your significant other, and looking at your boudoir album together. How will you feel? I would feel so happy I did it and it will remind me how beautiful I was, and how beautiful I still am.

4/ One of a kind Gift

With Boudoir images, you can make sure it’s a very personal gift. He won’t get this present from anyone else, that’s why it’s so powerful. You are the only person who can offer him this gift.

5/ Perfect excuse to buy new lingerie

As you can imagine, lingerie outfits are important for the success of a Boudoir session. The fun part is to buy lingerie for your shoot and only wear it after you’ve shown him your images. You’ve created a fantasy in your man’s imagination. Now is time to make it a reality…

Top 5 reasons why everyone should do a Boudoir Photoshoot!

I hear a lot of reasons why women DON'T do a boudoir shoot, they're not confident enough, they want to lose weight, they're too shy, the list goes on! But I do think everyone should enjoy this self-love experience so I came up with the top 5 reasons why you should do a Boudoir Photoshoot, I hope you’ll be convinced :)

1/ CONFIDENCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh gosh, this is a big one! Each and every one of us has insecurities. We usually focus on everything we dislike about ourselves instead of the things we love. Boudoir is about self-confidence and self-acceptance, it makes you feel beautiful just as you are, right here right now. Boudoir is about freedom! And you’ll never look as sexy and beautiful than when you feel confident. So allow yourself to be beautiful, because you are.

This is an experience you will never forget…ever! You'll feel like you can conquer the world after your shoot.

2/ It’s a great excuse to get pampered.

Please, do something just for yourself. I know you’re busy, you have to plan your friend’s birthday party, you have to take care of your kids, you have to finish an important report at work…

STOP! BREATHE! Come for a personalised photoshoot where our professional hair & makeup artist will look after you for an hour while you’ll be enjoying our sweet treats and some sparkling wine!

3/ It makes a great gift.

I can't think of a better wedding day, or anniversary gift to your spouse than a collection of smokin' hot photos of you! Trust me, they'll love it.

Celebrate NOW! I have never met a man who did not love this particular gift!


4/ Celebrate something!

Maybe it's to celebrate your wedding, your anniversary, or your weight loss. Maybe it's to celebrate having just had a baby, or fighting cancer. Or maybe it's just to celebrate how awesome you are, right now, as you are. Whatever the reason, celebrate yourself!

5/ Create memories

During a Boudoir session we are capturing images of yourself that truly matter! Every time you’ll look at your amazing portraits, you’ll feel confident, sexy and empowered. You’ll keep these photos for life and you’ll get this empowering feeling for life too.

How awesome is that?

Choosing outfits for your Boudoir session

I know! This is one of the biggest struggle for women before coming to their Boudoir photoshoot. What to wear? What to bring? I want to make this very simple for you so here are a few ideas to get you inspired :)



Either black, white or colourful, a bra and panty set is a very simple outfit that every woman already has in her closet. You can pair a set with anything, a sweater, a skirt, jeans or high heels. If you’re a simple girl who doesn’t wear a lot of lingerie, this is definitely your outfit!



One of my favourite! It’s a very simple outfit that usually suits every body type. Sleeves, no sleeves, you can choose any colour, any fabrics, it’s so versatile. This is also a great option for women who want to hide their stomach but still feel sexy and confident.



Very cozy and natural outfit to start the photoshoot and make you feel at ease. Everyone has a sweater in their closet. Otherwise you can use our comfy blanket. Pick this outfit to capture some lifestyle sexy images.



WOW if you’re looking for something a bit more classy and elegant, you can definitely bring a corset. Make sure it’s the right size and it fits you perfectly.


I usually start the photoshoot with something casual, natural to make my clients feel comfortable. This is when I suggest wearing a bra or bodysuit with your favourite jeans. It looks casual but so sexy…

You can also bring your favourite dress to a Boudoir shoot. We want you to feel comfortable with what you’re wearing but make sure you’re ready to dance a bit :)


No, there is no reason to be scared! I understand, nude is not for everyone but if you are brave enough to book a boudoir shoot, it might be your best opportunity to try some nude images. And trust me… nobody wants to do nude portraits when they arrive but they all ask for some at the end of the session. There is something different about nude images. These kind of portraits are indeed only about you, your body and self-love. Nothing else matters. You don’t have to be nude but we highly recommend you try! You’ll be so proud of yourself.

Top 5 excuses women don't book a Boudoir Experience

I know! We can all come up with 20 different excuses for not doing a Boudoir session. When we get nervous, we make excuses.

A boudoir session is sooooo scary that our mind will find any excuses to persuade us not to do it. And this is when you have to be brave ladies. Because this experience is worth it and might change your life! Here are the top 5 excuses women don’t book a Boudoir shoot and I hope they are not yours :)

1/ I’m too old.

Oh gosh, I soooo disagree with that! A woman is never, ever too old to allow herself to feel beautiful and celebrate herself. I can definitely see beauty in any woman on earth. You may not be that same girl as you were in your 20's but now you're even better, you're a woman. A strong, independent, confident woman. You've been through life and can share so many stories and emotions through your eyes and your face, you have so much more confidence and wisdom. There's an age when beauty is outside and an age when beauty is inside, but there's always beauty!

2/ I need to lose a few kilos first.

Well, that's THE excuse that will always stop you from doing this incredible experience. You see, a Boudoir session is not to capture yourself when you're "perfect", when you've lost 20 kilos and you're size 6. The whole point is to capture yourself now, because now, you're proud of yourself and you love yourself!

I think it’s amazing to have goals and want to get healthy, but does that mean you have to hate your body to do those things? Absolutely NOT! You should love yourself every step of the way. Be proud of yourself. Have a boudoir shoot to celebrate where you are now, and then have one when you lose those kilos to celebrate how far you’ve come!

3/ I am not photogenic.

Every living women is photogenic! I'm sorry to say that but what is important is the right photographer who is able to direct you with flattering poses, create the perfect lighting conditions and most importantly make you relax in front of the camera. There's a lot going on to get a beautiful portrait and that's why you see the difference between a selfie and a professional image. You might think you're not photogenic because you haven't been to a professional photographer yet. Let me pose you the right way with the perfect outfit and a beautiful makeup, then we'll see if you're not photogenic!

4/ I don’t know how to pose.

Great! Like 99% of my clients! Unless you are a professional model, you're not supposed to know how to pose for a photoshoot, I don't think you have a class in high school for that yet. That is why I offer a fully directed session, which means I show you or explain to you how to pose the best way to get a beautiful photo. In photography, details are quite important, your hands, arms, head, hair, makeup...everything need to be in place in order to capture a great portrait. My job is to take care of all these little details. I tell you to move your right hand this way and your chin forward because it looks better on camera. In photography we play with light and angles, sometimes you might feel weird but that's normal.

Your job, on the other hand is to RELAXXXXXX. So don't stress, you just need to bring your enthusiasm and follow my direction. That easy!

5/ I can’t afford it.

Well, I don't know your financial situation but I work with any kind of budgets. My sitting fee allows you to come for a full makeover and a photoshoot where I walk you through the most flattering poses. Then it's entirely up to you how much you want to spend on your portraits as there is no minimum required. You only buy what you like! I'm very picky regarding the products I offer as I always choose the best quality. I also offer a payment plan to make it easier for you to get exactly what you want. Usually my clients saved for their photoshoot, just like you would a girl's night out, a vacation or a designer bag you really want. But remember, a Boudoir session is not only about the images, it's about the experience. What you get at the end, this confidence in yourself, the feeling to be so beautiful and powerful and the magic to reconnect to your true self is Priceless. If you want it, you can have it!
