Boudoir Photography Long Island
Frequently Asked Questions
What is boudoir photography?
Boudoir photography brings out your sensual side, a side you may not even be familiar with! Whether it's bridal portraits for weddings, vintage, pin-up photography or maternity shoots for expecting mothers, it is a chance to let your inhibitions go and trust that our talented staff will use their vision to show you just how beautiful you are.
No, that does not mean you have to wear super sexy lingerie, push up bras, thigh highs… things that maybe do not match your personality… you can wear a t-shirt and undies! No one can define your sexy, but you!
A boudoir photoshoot is a great way to celebrate yourself and your beauty. It is more than just creating amazing, professional photos... it is a FEELING. A boudoir photography session is a great way to boost your confidence and self love, find your sense of self... maybe you are getting married and want to feel beautiful before your big day. Maybe, you are celebrating a milestone birthday, anniversary or another important moment in your life. Maybe you want to surprise your husband by posing like a supermodel...Or, maybe you have gone through a major life change such as a divorce, loss/grief, weight loss... doing a boudoir shoot is a gift for your soul and a way to say, my circumstances do not define me, I am beautiful, I am worth it, this is who I am and while I may not be perfect, I am still flawless.
