Valentine’s Day Boudoir Photo Shoot Giveaway
Tis the season of LOVE! Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, the day many spend gifting to each other the one perfect item that spells out their love for one another.
Ladies and gents, in honor of Amour and Valentine’s Day we are offering you THE most perfect gift for yourself or your significant other….A Boudoir Photo shoot!
Boudoir photo shoots are something that has become trendy within the last year. Brides-to-be have embraced bridal boudoir photos as the ultimate pre-wedding or honeymoon present for their future husband, dating couples gift them to their significant other for special occasions, and even single ladies find it a great way to celebrate themselves / owning their sensuality in a creative way.
What is boudoir or how would one describe boudoir photography you may ask? Boudoir is French for a lady’s private sitting room, dressing room, or bedroom and boudoir photography can best be described as art. One way I would NOT describe boudoir photos are ‘nudey’ shots. The perfect photographer will create the idea of nudity without being nude, the pros call it ‘implied nudity. The finished product tends to be more sensual than erotic, think photos in Maxim magazine not Playboy .
You may say boudoir photography is not for me….that statement can be further from the truth. To celebrate and love one’s body, whether it be curvy, shapeless, or model-esque, is for everyone so why not capture that beauty in a timeless photo. If you decide to share with your significant other, the world or keep it to yourself is totally up to you.
