Please note that the work of Boudoir Fusion Photography has a copyright, why would you want to copy it, rather come in for a shoot, and if you a photographer it is just wrong to copy someone elses images? Now if it is for Pinterest, that is a different story ;)

Before and After images

Boudoir Photography is for all women of all shapes, ages and sizes, we feel that there is sensuality on every woman, some of you may just have to rediscover it, and one fantastic way to do that would be through a boudoir photography shoot.

You can visit our website to find out more about our prices and packages.

Below are a few before and after images of our lovely clients, please note that we always get permission from our clients before we publish any images. The changes in boudoir photography are achieved through our awesome makeovers from our in house make up artist, set designer, fashion assistant, lighting, photography and post editing to give you that cover girl finish.

Before and After Boudoir photography

6 Reasons to do a Boudoir Session

There are many different reasons as why to have a boudoir photography shoot, here are a few:

  1. You need to often pamper yourself and remind yourself that you are beautiful and gorgeous, what better way to spoil yourself. You may choose a boudoir photography shoot in your new lingerie, or a nude photography shoot just to celebrate the woman you are.
  2. A wedding gift, we think that this could be the best present the groom could receive, imagine coming for a Wedding Whispers shoot, you choose some sensual, alluring and romantic images of yourself, we edit these and put them into a coffee table booklet for you. While you are getting ready and the groom is waiting, send the bridesmaid out with the book for the groom, tell her to let him know that this is waiting for him under your gorgeous wedding dress!
  3. Many of our clients were stumped with an idea for their partners wedding anniversary, birthday, Christmas or Valentine’s day gift, or that was until they found us and did a boudoir photography session and surprised them with a coffee table booklet where they were the star.
  4. Ever wanted to be the calendar pin up girl, well here is your opportunity to have a theme for each month, be it Back to School in January, A Bunny over Easter, A naughty Santa helper over Christmas, we can help you put some ideas together to give your partner a personalised calendar.
  5. Want to spoil the girls with a party with a difference, well a boudoir photography party will be one that you will all talk about for years to come, not only that , you will also get some fabulous images of yourselves.
  6. Want to commemorate a special occasion such as your 30th, 50th or beyond? What about getting those new boobs you have always wanted? We can assist you with a package for all your needs.

We had a client last year that wanted to surprise her husband and did a shoot with us and had all the edits transferred to a DVD, she checked into a hotel room with him and while he was in the shower slipped the DVD into the hotel room entertainment system, it took him a few minutes to realise the babe on the television was actually his wife, she said they did not leave the room much that weekend.

In summary you never need a reason to do a shoot as you will always find a reason, celebrate yourself and book a boudoir photography session with us.

Frequently asked Questions

This is not your everyday family portrait shoot and is something very different to what you would do every day! For many, this is a once in a lifetime experience and with that many questions could come to mind.

The following frequently asked question list will hopefully cover many of the questions that you may have from wardrobe selection to what to do on a boudoir photography shoot to selecting your final product.

What is boudoir photography?

The beauty industry is thriving, as we love to pamper ourselves and spend an enormous amount of time and money in doing so be it purchasing the latest beauty products, fashion accessories, a new hair style, manicure, pedicures, fitness and even plastic surgery all to make us feel beautiful.

Boudoir photography is a lifelong investment in yourself as we will document and capture your beauty to treasure for a lifetime.

We are not interested in your body type or age as boudoir photography is for all shapes and sizes , our goal is to offer all women the incredible opportunity to commission their own collection of stunning and modern boudoir photography images. We will bring out and concentrate on your best features and provide you with something truly unique to show you how beautiful you are.

Our sessions are designed around your personality to give as a gift to yourself, or as a romantic gift to your partner, these sessions are designed with you in mind.

What products and packages do you offer and how much is a boudoir photography session?

Please view our Products gallery on our website to see what we offer. Send us an email to find out about our current investment guide in which you will find all of our products and packages designed for you. If you are impatient, then simply visit our website for all of our products and packages.

My boudoir photography session is now booked so how do I prepare?

Once you have paid your deposit and secured a booking, we will have a pre meeting with you to allay all of your fears as well as discuss what to wear, or what not to wear. We will discuss what to do with your hair, eyebrow shaping, tanning, waxing and moisturising.

I am uncomfortable with nudity, what now?

How much you take off or leave on is purely up to your comfort levels, we have some clients that are really comfortable with their bodies and nudity and actually request a nude photography shoot, while others are a little more reserved. The choice can be left up to how comfortable you feel on the day. No always means no, so if we suggest anything you feel uncomfortable with tell us, this shoot is about you and your comfort levels. If you are uncomfortable that will translate to the final images and that is not the goal. Sexy is not always about how much you show but how you show it. Many men say that leaving something to the imagination is much sexier than baring all. If you do decide on a nude shoot we strive to give you classy and sensual images.

I am extremely nervous about my boudoir photography shoot, is this normal?

Don’t panic, it’s a natural feeling, even some professional models have admitted that they have been nervous before a shoot. We will guide you through the entire process from telling you how to pose to when to smile or just give us that sexy look. We show you how to get that sultry look and what to do with your head and hands, your goal is just to look fabulous. We know which angles to capture all body types to accentuate your beauty. We design our packages to allow you plenty of time to relax and feel comfortable, as already stated, this shows in the final images. So leave everything to us and relax and enjoy your experience.

Do you provide hair and makeup services?

We have a makeup artist that will do your makeup before the shoot and any touch ups you ask for during the shoot. We would like to recommend that you have your hair done prior to your selected boudoir photography session but can, at your cost, arrange for a hairdresser to be present either before the shoot or for the duration of your shoot.

What should I bring to my boudoir photography shoot and can you assist with my wardrobe?

We have a large selection of corsets, stockings, shoes and lingerie and we will see if we have your size during our pre meeting. We would recommend that you bring a variety of lingerie, jewellery and shoes with killer heels to the pre meeting so that we can best match it to the sets and boudoir shoot you decide upon.

How to select your lingerie:

  • bra and panty sets,
  • teddy,
  • a corset,
  • garters,
  • chemise,
  • camisole,
  • thigh high stockings and robes.
  • Black is often seen as the standard in sexy, but don’t forget that all colours are great and may give you a pleasant variety of looks to your final images.
  • Brides why don’t you bring your favourite white lingerie or better yet, the lingerie you plan to wear on your wedding day, we do have a veil and white garters but again, if you prefer to.
  • a variety of high heels and high boots,
  • a personal item of your significant other
  • jewellery; particularly that favourite piece of yours
  • hats,
  • scarves,
  • ties.
  • Some of our clients have brought a piece of their partner’s favourite clothing or sporting equipment, have a look through our galleries for inspiration.

I have a little problem area that I don’t like about by body – is there anything you can do?

We offer advanced retouching services that include skin perfecting, body contouring and feature enhancement, you decide on which wrinkles, acne, scars and tattoos you want left in, we don’t want to change you, we just want to give you that cover girl look.

When do I get to see my images and when will they be ready?

You will get to see your images immediately after your shoot after which we will take 14 – 21 working days to get your images back to you.

How many images can I choose and how many will you take on a session?

We take a number of images during your shoot, it all depends on the package you choose as to how many we will take and how many we edit, please visit our website for full details on the above. We will endeavour to keep your images for several years so if, at a later date you require additional images we can usually assist you with your request.

Will my images be shown on your website or in your studio?

We will only show images on our website, Facebook, Blog and studio if we get a full signed modelling release from you, so you can be rest assured, if you want to keep the shoot totally private we will not publicise any of our images. Your images will only be seen by our photographer, stylist and editor. We fully respect and understand the privacy of our clients.

I’d love to give a boudoir photography session as a gift. How do I go about doing that?

Visit our website to choose the package that you would like to gift and either call us or drop us an email to let us know. We will prepare a voucher, custom designed, with your details as well as the details of the person to whom you are giving the gift.

If you have read this far, you are probably really serious about doing a shoot, we think that Boudoir Fusion Photography can offer you what you are looking for and look forward to seeing you soon.

What to wear? Black Magic

This is a question asked by all of our clients in preparation for their boudoir photo session and not only limited to what to wear when you go out.  For some it may be what not to wear.

We have a number of different packages available for you to choose from and these can be seen on our website, the reason that this is important is that some packages have more sets and outfit changes than others.

  • Stilettos
    Lacy Lingerie, silky lingerie and sexy lingerie, don’t worry if you don’t have any as we have a large selection that you can use if you don’t have any of your own.
    Corsets (we do have a stock that you can purchase directly from us)
  • A Push Up Bra
  • Several G-Strings, please try to ensure that you have a black, white and flesh coloured thong on the day of your Boudoir Photography Shoot.
  • Further Suggestions:
    • a nice dress shirt belonging to your partner/fiancé/husband/boyfriend can make the photos very personal.
    • Jerseys from a favourite team either of you support.
    • If your partner is into certain sports like cricket, golf, rugby , etc. possibly bringing some sort of prop to identify this sport will be good.

About Boudoir Photography

About Boudoir PhotographyBoudoir Photography has many different forms and connotations associated with it.  We see boudoir photography as an art-form and have included the term “fusion” as we like to fuse boudoir photography with nude, glamour, sensual, erotic, burlesque, lingerie and fashion photography.  Above all, we simply like to focus our photography on you and what suits your character.

There is also a misconception that you need to be a skinny waif to partake in a session – well we beg to differ!  Beauty is not about being young, skinny, fit or in perfect shape.  Beauty is about being yourself and capturing the woman you are forever…

Our clients have come from all walks of life from housewife through to rocket scientist!

Boudoir Photography is the perfect gift for your partner, your lover or even just as a gift to yourself.  If you are stumped for a birthday, Christmas or Valentine’s present, then a boudoir session is going to have to be the ultimate sensual gift that your partner will cherish.

We have number of packages available to choose from, visit our website for details on all of our packages.

Boudoir Fusion Photography will have a pre meeting with you preferably in person to assess your character and tailor make a shoot to highlight your best features. Our goals will be to create artistic portraits that you can use on Facebook and images that will be private for you and your partner or yourself.
