Shawna updated her own boudoir photography blog.

We did a sensual session when she was here visiting family recently.

Shawna is a Byron, Georgia-based boudoir photographer who wanted to experience what it was like being the subject of a sensual session as well as celebrate recent life changes. Go to her blog here to read what she has to say about the experience and her message to others thinking about doing a boudoir session.

“Doing a boudoir session should be something you choose to do for yourself.” – Shawna.

Every boudoir photography site I’ve seen always starts out with the premise that you should do a boudoir session “for that special someone.” Well, you know what? I’m going to buck against that. You know what I think? I think the most important reason why a woman should consider doing a boudoir session is to do it for themselves.

You DO matter, you ARE worth it, and you ABSOLUTELY deserve it. Empower yourself.

Miss Marci’s first boudoir session.

She did it as a gift to herself and, as a result, surprised herself.

Marci messaged me one day about doing a boudoir session. She had never done one before but wanted to give it a try as a self-image boost. A gift to herself, in this gift giving season. She was nervous, which is to be expected, but excited about the experience. We chatted about ideas, outfit options, expectations, et cetera, and then set the date.

On the day of the session she first went to Carly C. Vega (https://www.facebook.com/MakeUpByVega/?pnref=lhc) for her make-up and hair. Carly, who rocks in my book, did her magic and sent Marci on her way to me. As soon as she showed up I knew we were going to have a great session. She came prepared with several outfits and accessories which showed her off.

Miss F’s recent sensual session.

Privacy is a top priority when it comes to sensual sessions.

Tis the busy season for boudoir photographers across the globe. Between now and Valentines Day people are looking for unique, personal gifts for their significant others, for a friend, or as a gift for themselves. Boudoir sessions check off all the boxes on that list and more.

That being said, it’s also the time for privacy concerns. A lot people don’t want their images on display for the world to see. The photos generated by a session are generally for a certain person’s eyes only. This is totally understandable. I honestly would say a good 50-60% of the sessions I do are never meant to be uploaded here.

That’s why there’s gaps between entries here, by the way.

This is a topic of discussion I have with every client before the session. I want to be clear with them that they are in control of everything. They control what we shoot, where we shoot, how long we shoot, and – most importantly – what happens to the images after the session is done.
