Why do we love boudoir photography? We believe that every single woman deserves to feel confident and beautiful in her own skin. Boudoir is for everybody and every BODY. As artists have known for thousands of years, the human figure is a work of art. It should be celebrated, admired, cherished.
Here is a little known fact that may surprise you: Intimate portraiture featuring women in their boudoirs has been a thing for nearly 100 years. Before quick film developing, before digital cameras, before women could vote and, before it was even legal!
For that reason, we here at Black Label consider boudoir photography a rite of passage; a gift to not just your significant other, but to yourself. It's a celebration of you, your womanhood, your beautiful body and your sense of spirit. Some may even think of it as an homage to the many women of all shapes and sizes who've posed before them.
Embracing our bodies for the works of art that they are is a powerful experience. We want our clients to leave empowered and confident. We want them to feel sexy and beautiful, whether that’s something they feel every day or something they haven’t felt for a long time.
Women are multidimensional. Gone are the days when women need to succumb to the pressure to fit into one cookie-cutter version of their much more complex selves. You can be the world's best mom AND a successful business woman. You can be strong AND vulnerable. You can be brilliant AND a complete goofball. You can be resilient, feminine, sexy, ambitious, determined. You can be whatever combination of these things you'd like. You can be whoever the hell you want to be. Each of us is unique; a combination of many characteristics and we need to let each of these facets of ourselves shine. You are allowed to be sexy.
You deserve to take a few hours out of the hectic hustle & bustle of day to day life, let your guard down, and let the sexy, fun, feminine side of yourself take over for a few hours and indulge in something for YOU - you deserve it.
Do you dare?
