Here's a little known fact that may surprise you: provocative photography featuring women in their boudoirs has been a thing for nearly 100 years. Yep -- before quick film developing, before digital cameras, before women could vote and, get this: before it was even legal! I'll spare you all the historical details and just tell you that women have been posing for the camera in their sexiest lingerie (sometimes sans clothing at all!) since the early 20th century. And, as you've seen in art class, many have posed for the paint brush and painter even earlier than that, as well.
We consider boudoir photography a rite of passage! Not just a gift to your significant other, but also to yourself! It's a celebration of of you, your womanhood, your beautiful body and your sense of spirit! The other thing... it's for YOU, right here and right now! In THIS body you are in. The reasons to do a boudoir shoot are truly endless! We've had women celebrating new figures, brides to be, those wanting a sexy birthday or christmas gift and some who just want to feel beautiful and sexy and relish in that! Some have gone thru major life changes like cancer or divorce. Others are growing a little one inside their body and want to opt for a not so traditional maternity shoot (though we do maternity sessions of all types!) But all these reasons are happening right now! Not after you've lost 10 pounds and not after you'd done another round of botox. We believe that every BODY is beautiful and deserves to be photographed no matter your age, size, shape or color!
Here's what's more... our first boudoir shoot was way back in 2010. So for a decade, we have been working hard to make women feel amazing, beautiful and empowered. That means we've come across it ALL. So there is truly no need to feel nervous or self conscious! We have GOT you! We will show you exactly how to pose, we will help you get those facial expressions you think only the models can make and we make you feel calm AND confident in front of the camera and, DAMN, that is sexy!
What Our Clients Are Saying
"I cannot sing Cotton Rouge's praises enough! My boudoir photo shoot with Katie was one of the most fun and empowering things I've ever done. She made me look and feel beautiful and fierce. All my worries about not knowing how to pose and my body self-consciousness evaporated because Katie told me how to move, she made me laugh, and I had no doubt she was a skilled professional. She literally worked MAGIC with a curling iron and a camera. The best part is that those photos are ME! My pictures drew out my inner diva and showed how sexy embracing yourself can really be. I think my husband might have had a mini heart attack when he unwrapped my boudoir book the night before our wedding! If you're considering a boudoir, the ONLY choice is Cotton Rouge!"
