Old Hollywood Charm Boudoir for Today’s Ladies

 

Boudoir photography Los Angeles poses

When I look at the old time black and white movie star photos I get a sense of glamour and chic that today’s photography is sometimes lacking. Modern photography is beautiful as well and eye or lip color can enhance a photo, sometimes an HDR post production will add interest.

However in this series of photos I wanted to recreate the feel of Old Hollywood using black and white photography, lighting, hair and makeup. Rather than using flash photography I like using continuous light, especially spot lighting to add shadows and drama. My makeup artist did a wonderul job enhancing this lady’s hair and makeup with a touch of 50s style.

Another tool is to add the right props for a photo shoot like this. To keep things simple I like to use black backgrounds and satin sheets as seen in many black and white photos. Of course vintage furniture or lingerie are a nice touch as well, though not absolutely necessary.

I really like the outcome of these black and white photos and use them quite often on my client’s photos. Albums of this type are especially nice as they seem to be right out of another era and there is a surprise element when the viewer realizes that the woman pictured is their own wife, a soccer mom or friend.

The last few years it has become very popular to flaunt a pregnant baby belly in anticipation of welcoming a new addion to a couple’s life. Demi Moore, Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera were the front runners who publicly got pictured nude or semi nude in boudoir photos on magazine covers.

It is an expression of how comfortable and proud a woman shows her changing body and starts the first memories on connecting with her unborn child. There are more curves to be flaunted and a beautiful glow to be captured which makes it a great experience for both the photographer and of course the mother to be.

Looking at the pregnancy boudoir photos years after will bring back memories on what it was like to be one and how exciting it was to expecting. A great memory not only for the mother, but also for the father and the rest of the family. Years later a mother may express to her child how welcomed he was and what it was like to get ready for him.

Selfies are nice, but to show off the whole beauty of a woman and her baby belly it should be done professionally. We want to avoid images that are unflattereing and essentially would be rejected to look at or shared with others. We use hair, makeup and edits to highlight a woman’s best features and hide insecurities.

Boudoir at the Beach?

I was recently asked to do a boudoir photo shoot at the beach. Traditionally I do most of my shoots in my studio in NELA in a more intimate setting. The word ‘boudoir’ is French for ‘bedroom’ and usually involves lingerie and bedsheets. However I happen to love the beach and posing and angles are similar and I was totally game!

To shoot on location is a whole different ball game than in a controlled studio atmosphere. There is wind, water, sand, sun, clouds and people to consider. I had to take a lot more shots to get the best photos, but I was very pleased with the outcome.

The golden hour right before sunset is the perfect time to get the most beautiful and flattering photos. The lady in this image is 49 years young and she looks amazing to begin with, but the golden sunlight gave her a little touch of extra magic.

Teasing without Sleazing in Boudoir Photography

DSC_7491

In boudoir photography it is not all about showing everything. Yes it is sensual, sexy and provocative, yes it is often nude or implied nude, but it is not pornographic or sleazy.

 

Often times I have to reposition legs, hands or bodies to make them look more classy and tasteful, rather than spread legs and expose breasts. It is all about the story and mood in the picture and the photographer controls the tone of which the photo expresses.

The majority of my clients are wives, professionals and mothers who never had a professional photoshoot done before and rarely show their sensual side to anyone, but their spouse. It is very important to me to protect the ladies’ integrity, but at the same time allow them to be vulnerable and emotional.

The best photos happen when my clients trust me in my judgement and artistic eye to showcast them in images they will love forever. If you are curious about a boudoir photoshoot contact me here.
