An Outdoor boudoir photoshoot is a beautiful and unique way to capture intimate and romantic moments in a stunning natural setting. While the idea of such a shoot can be intimidating, with the right preparation and guidance, it can be an incredibly rewarding experience.
The History of boudoir photography
Boudoir photography has been around since the beginning of photography. It was initially used as a way to capture intimate, romantic moments between couples, often as a gift to their significant other. The earliest known examples of boudoir photography date back to the late 19th century, when the practice was popular among wealthy European aristocrats. In the early 20th century, boudoir photography began to become more commercialized, as photographers started to offer services to anyone who was interested. Today, boudoir photography is a popular form of portraiture, and it’s often used to celebrate a woman’s beauty, sexuality, and confidence. From classic black and white images to modern, glamorous shots, the art of boudoir photography has come a long way and continues to evolve with the times.

Modern boudoir photography is a type of photography that celebrates the beauty of the subject. It focuses on the sensual elements of a person, often using intimate poses and lighting to create a feeling of intimacy. It can be done in a variety of styles and can range from playful to seductive. The goal of modern boudoir photography is to create images that make the subject feel empowered and beautiful, while still respecting their privacy. Boudoir photography has become increasingly popular in recent years, as it celebrates the beauty of the individual in a tasteful and respectful way.
Outdoor boudoir photography
Outdoor boudoir photography is a unique type of photography that takes place in an outdoor setting, such as a garden, a beach, or even a park. This type of photography is usually more natural and has a more relaxed atmosphere than studio boudoir photography. Outdoor boudoir photography often captures the beauty of natural light and the environment around the model, allowing for an intimate, creative, and unique look. The photographs will often appear more candid and genuine than studio boudoir photographs. Furthermore, outdoor boudoir photography is more open to experimentation than studio boudoir, as the photographer can take advantage of the landscape and natural elements to create unique shots.
Color Analysis & Styling my First OUtdoor Boudoir Photoshoot Client
Kathy was an absolute dream to work with! She was up for anything and just such a natural beauty. I hope I look even half as amazing as she does when I am a Grandma!
We began the process as usual, by completing a full color analysis to figure out the best colors for Kathy’s natural coloring. I think this step is so important, even if it’s boudoir and you are wearing less clothing than traditional photoshoots. Since we are showing more skin, the colors we choose for the session matter even more!
After we determined her best colors, she began to shop her closet and stores for some pieces. We went with two looks. Her favorite jeans, boots and hat for some topless shots. And some lacy lingerie in a color that complemented her skin tone. We also used a lace dress both as a robe and blanket to provide some coverage for different poses.
When I was first asked to style a client for an outdoor boudoir photoshoot with Kimberly Minor I was a little nervous! It was completely new and I just wasn’t sure what to pick and how to style someone for boudoir. But once I began researching pieces I found out there’s so much more to boudoir photography than I thought! And, you really can get quite creative with the outfits. This was my first session, with more to come, so keep an eye out for what it all becomes. I can’t wait to share it all with you!
