Boudoir photo sessions are confidence boosting and self empowering. These sessions are meant to embrace your sexuality, celebrate your beauty, and create positivity.
Anthony Hawthorne Photography aims to create a comfortable and body positive experience, helping you feel appreciative and confident in your body regardless of your body type.
Sessions are about the experience as much as the memories, creating a joyous occasion for you, you and a few girlfriends, or you and an intimate partner. Boudoir sessions should feel like a spa day in which you get to feel beautiful and pampered. You will be greeted with a complimentary bottle of wine or champagne to enjoy during your boudoir session.
Your Boudoir session can take place in a studio setting with backdrops, simple backgrounds, or light furniture. You can also have your photo session on location and in some cases, your own home. The most common location is a hotel room or hotel suite, especially for girlfriends sessions.
Make and Hair:
You can take in the full experience and be pampered with a make up artist to make you feel your best self or you can prepare your own make up. A make up artist can be available if booked in advanced and make a great addition for you and your friends to get your make up done while waiting to shoot. You should come hair ready.
What to wear:
During a pre-shoot consultation we can discuss ideas, lighting, poses, and wardrobe to make your boudoir session unique to you. The idea is to wear what makes you feel sexy, sensual, intimate, and beautiful. Your comfort is important and nudity is not required.
You don't not have to be skilled at posing or experienced in front of the camera. I will help you with posing, hand placement, and what is needed to make sure your photos look great.
