That Word: Boudoir | Virginia Fine Art Intimate Woman Bedroom Photographer
I think for most…that word…boudoir…carries with it a certain connotation.
Fishnets, corsets, and thongs. Dramatic makeup & lighting. FIERCE. CONFIDENT. Sex. SEXY.
And it can be those things. Could…if you wanted. But it doesn’t have to be.
It can be soft, sweet, gentle, GRACEFUL. It can be whatever you are.
Boudoir doesn’t have to be scary.
Can we start at the beginning? Definition.
a woman’s dressing room, bedroom, or private sitting room
So here’s a not so secret secret. My bedroom DOES NOT, will not, cannot look like yours. I mean it can. And it might resemble or maybe be similar. But will everything be the same? No. Our personal touches, our unique experiences, my victories and failures, your family and upbringing, your job, your socioeconomic background, your style, YOU, make all the difference.
Urban Dictionary defines boudoir as…
An intimate photo of a man or women, suggestively covered but not fully nude, meant to tease the senses.
Tease. Suggest. Pull. Play. Tempt.
My darlings, boudoir is not one size fits all. Its about your beauty, your sexuality, your confidence, YOUR experience.
And each of us. These fearfully and wonderfully made creatures of beauty is…are different. And what freedom we have in that! We can be truly and unashamedly us. Fully clothed or nude. Natural, high class, vintage, SEXY, sultry, sweet, light, dark, dramatic or meek.
Whatever it is. Boudoir is YOU.
Love, Yours Truly
