Boudoir photography is an intimate style of photography that captures a woman’s beauty and sensuality. It’s subtle, but sexy.
This style of photography is fairly new to New Zealand, and makes a wonderful gift for a partner, a bride-to-be, or yourself.
Boudoir celebrates real women, not models, and it’s a world away from “glamour.” A boudoir shoot will boost your confidence and make you feel gorgeous. (That it makes a romantic gift is just a bonus.)
When I recommend a boudoir shoot, I speak from personal experience. I purchased a boudoir shoot as a wedding anniversary present for my husband. While it was initially intimidating, I walked away feeling beautiful, confidant, and inspired to share the experience with others.
I trained with one of the UK’s leading boudoir photographers, and have brought my passion with me to New Zealand.
How it Works
The success of your shoot is based on trust and collaboration.
We’ll take some time to get to know each other – perhaps over a cup of coffee – while we plan for our photography session. We’ll discuss the look you’re after, how to prepare and the location for your shoot.
I approach each shoot individually. Just as every woman’s body is unique, so too will be the shoot that celebrates it. I encourage you to take time to invest in yourself and this experience: buy new lingerie, some heels you can’t walk in, or get in shape if it makes you feel more confident (I had to).
Our shoot will take at least three hours. We’ll work in a relaxing space with natural light, whether your bedroom, at home, or a hotel room. You may opt to do your own hair and makeup or work with my trusted stylist. Most women incorporate different outfits in one shoot for distinct boudoir looks. You can choose to be as revealing as you feel. I allow the shoot evolve naturally, as we take the time to get comfortable and find the right poses and looks for you. I’ll guide you throughout so that you look and feel incredible.
Packages and Pricing
Following our session, I edit each photo individually and present the images to you. We’ll discuss your favorites, and select several to be printed and framed or compiled into an album. I’ll also provide you with digital copies. In the end, you’ll receive stunning, professional boudoir photos that will make you feel sexy for the rest of your life.
I work with Queensberry in New Zealand selected for their superior quality and design. I also partner with local framers to ensure your prints are beautifully framed.
I offer three standard packages based on what has worked for clients in the past, but am happy to work with you to create a custom package with exactly what you want from your shoot.
If you’re considering a boudoir shoot, get in touch. I would be delighted to chat about your goals, concerns, and send you some additional information. I love the power and art of boudoir. It’s a wonderful experience, and one that I believe every woman should have.
This was a wonderful voyage of discovery for me and has done loads for my self confidence. I had never been into boudoir or even knew much about it and I normally feel awkward and self conscious in front of a lens. Not sure how she did it, but with Wendy I quickly forgot my hangups and she had so many fabulous ideas! I love the photographs and even when I look at them now, I go "Wow!!" and feel sexy, sassy and feminine all over again. This is something every girl should try, we deserve it!! P.
