What is Boudoir Photography? | Indiana Boudoir Photography

What is Boudoir Photography you ask? You searched the internet for the meaning and you landed directly into my Indiana Boudoir Photography blog!!! Our Indiana Boudoir photography Studio has been open for 12+ years and specializes in Boudoir Photography.

Boudoir photography is a form of professional photography that is intimate, classy, and sultry in nature, it dates back to the 1940’s and has been gaining popularity at a great speed since then. It is a great way for women to feel beautiful or as a gift from to significant other. Boudoir photography can be done tastefully with or without nudity. 

The word boudoir is French for “bedroom.” Boudoir photography has its roots in the Victorian era. During this time, boudoirs were ornately decorated bedrooms used by women to rest before or after social events. It was also a place where they could receive guests away from the company of men who might not be allowed into their chambers otherwise.

Most boudoir sessions are done in a photography studio or at the client’s personal residence. My sessions are done in my Indiana Boudoir Photography Studio located in Crown Point, Indiana. Are you a Chicago gal? No worries, we are only 45 minutes from downtown.

Boudoir photography is a popular option for a bride to give as a gift on their wedding day, a birthday gift, an anniversary gift, or a gift for Valentine’s Day or for no reason at all. Many women have a Boudoir photography session to celebrate their beauty, femininity, and sensuality. Boudoir photography is a great way to build and embrace your self-confidence.

Boudoir photography is often associated with glamour, fashion, or wedding photography; but it can also be done in more artistic styles such as fine art nude boudoir photos. But don’t worry when you book a boudoir session with our Indiana boudoir photography studio, you don’t have to go completely nude, you can show as little or as much skin as you feel comfortable doing.
