Boudoir Photography in Niagara Falls

Boudoir def.: A boudoir (/buːˈdwɑːr/; French: [bu.dwaʁ]) is a woman's private sitting room or salon in a furnished residence, usually between the dining room and the bedroom, but can also refer to a woman's private bedroom. The term derives from the French verb bouder (to sulk or pout)

Here a few boudoir photos that I’ve going back about 20+ years.

Trying to post a bit of a variety of photos.

Some are done in a studio setting and some at the client’s home.  And one, here, is obviously taken outdoors. 

In majority of instances hair and makeup were done by the clients themselves.  Sometimes with a little help from a friend.  These are not ‘makeover’ type sessions. 

Have a look through these and some of the other blog posts.  There are more images at the main website as well:  Photo-Photo

And then, give me a call or email me.  And we’ll chat. Ideally, I like to meet first with someone if we are going to work together.
Make sure we like each other.

Recent Boudoir Photoshoot at TellTale Studios, St. Catherines

Recent Boudoir Photoshoot at TellTale Studios, St. Catherines

Boudoir Photography - Niagara Region, Ontario

These images are from a recent boudoir photoshoot I did in St Catherines, Ontario.

These were for a client that wanted to keep them private.
I asked if I could post these painterly images and she said yes. 

She had never done anything like this before; a friend suggested it might be fun to do.
Something different.

We used a new studio in St. Catherines (Ontario) called Tell Tale Studios.  

It’s run by McKenzie Katsmar.  Very helpful young gentleman.
He is also a photographer so knows what is needed. 

The studio itself is perfect.  Great soft window light.
Ceilings, I think, are at least 14 feet high.  Hardwood floor.
Enough props and room to get lots of different angles and backgrounds. Very reasonable rates. 

The photos were edited with Lightroom then Photoshop.
Using Photoshop AI and various brushes and other tools.
(I’m learning.)

The model was an acquaintance and had seen my portfolio.
I asked her to bring a friend which she did.
This is always a good idea - for both parties.
Though, if you are a male photographer and you are photographing a female,
I generally suggest a female model not bring a boyfriend or husband.
Creates an uncomfortable vibe.
Moms are not the best either as they try and run the show. 

A girlfriend or female sibling is always best.
They can sit and read or some such.
Or occasionally help  hold a reflector! 🙂
