Have you ever wondered about Couples Boudoir? Have you seen the gorgeous photos on Pinterest or Facebook? Couples boudoir is becoming all the rage and I’m glad it is! I love the intimacy that it brings and the passion and emotion that the photos tell! There is nothing else like it. The beauty, the playfulness, the giggles, the kisses, and the closeness that these sessions bring forth are pretty amazing to watch unfold.
Before we go through some of the many reasons why you and your special someone should try an intimate couple’s boudoir photo shoot, let’s just get one thing clear: there’s no template for a couple’s boudoir shoot. Each session and experience is unique to the people involved. We don’t follow a formula and the outcome is very much based on the personalities involved.
This means that if you want your photo shoot to be cosy and relaxed, that’s what we will make it. If you want it to be sexy and revealing, you’ve got it. We’ll help and encourage you along the way, but if you’re not comfortable with our suggestions, we will move on and try something else. The end result will be something personal and specific to the two of you. Something you can be proud of and something that serves as a reminder of what’s important to your relationship.
So, why should you do this with your significant other? If you aren’t already convinced, here are some of the reasons we think you should consider having a couple’s boudoir photo shoot…
It Builds Intimacy
You’ve already chosen to spend your life with your partner and you’ve already shown each other all sorts of parts of yourselves – physically and emotionally. Sharing an experience like this can take all of that one step further, adding to those building blocks of intimacy which make up your relationship.
Through the shared experience and the physical prompt of your beautiful images, you will be reminded of the time together and your special bond. A couple’s shoot isn’t about the individuals so much as the two of you – what you each bring to your partnership and how you complement each other. Shifting the focus and shining a light specifically on your relationship to think about how best to capture that in print really highlights the attraction between two people.
You may find that afterwards, you have a new appreciation for each other, an added layer to your relationship. Learning new things with and about your partner is a beautiful bonding experience; we want you to get the most out of it.
You’ll Both Feel VERY Sexy
Even if you don’t feel sexy at the beginning of the shoot, you will by the time we are done. There aren’t really any rules here. If one of you is more comfortable with nothing or little on and the other would rather be covered up, then we can make that work. If you’re both happy to reveal all, that can make a great shot too!
We don’t have to jump straight into the bare necessities; we can work up to it gradually so that you feel comfortable.
It’s also a good excuse for you to pamper yourselves before the shoot! Treat yourselves to manicures, pedicures, facials, etc. to make sure you’re ready and at your best ahead of the session. This isn’t mandatory – if you’d rather keep your look natural, that’s perfectly fine with us.
Being Nervous Isn’t a Problem
Sometimes we find that one half of the partnership is really keen on the idea of a shared photo shoot while the other may feel uncomfortable or self-conscious. Let me reassure you; we’ve seen all of this before and we pride ourselves on building a relaxed and trusting environment. There’s no judgement here and we want you both to feel comfortable so that we can capture your honest and true relationship. We aren’t shooting for a couples brochure and we don’t want polished, contrived images. We want something unique and personal to you. Something that doesn’t exist anywhere else, with anyone else.
It doesn’t matter if you’ve been together for 2 or 20 years, sharing a boudoir photo shoot with your partner is an amazing experience. You’ll find out new things about each other, remind yourselves of all of the little reasons why you’re together and you’ll reaffirm all of those big reasons too.
Whether you are thinking of booking a couple’s boudoir photo shoot as a surprise gift for your other half, or if this is something you’ve been discussing together, we can answer any further questions you have. Of course, if you have already decided and want to talk about booking your session, that’s great too!
