Natural, Fine Art Boudoir {Boudoir Photographer Hampshire}

Why confine yourself to a studio when the natural environment has so much to offer?  And why confine yourself to staid portraits when there are so many genres to explore? Thanks to the likes of Gok Wan, ‘boudoir’ photography is now so popular that it has become a specialism for many portrait photographers – and so it should – to somebody who photographs the human form for a living there is nothing more enticing than making our clients look and feel fantastic, whilst pushing the creative boundaries.  Yesterday’s shoot presented itself in the form of stunning mum of two Emma, and we had the New Forest in Hampshire as our backdrop. I also have to thank the wonderful Tracy Willis for handing this shoot to us on a plate (if you haven’t seen Tracy’s award-winning baby photography then you must – head over to Facebook to keep up to date with Tracy’s amazing work). Even the weather was perfect.

If I were asked to define boudoir photography I would say that it is simply about ladies looking wonderful in their lingerie. I don’t work in a studio, because my work is entirely bespoke and I have no desire to create endlessly similar sets of images for my clients. Instead, I like to work in my client’s own homes (all an hotel if they prefer) so that the photographs are personal and unique to them. We don’t need anywhere posh, just three or four areas in the home which provide the backdrops we need, such as a plain wall, a bed which can be dressed to suit the mood, a sofa in an uncluttered living room etc. There is nothing more personal than a set of beautiful boudoir images presented in a beautiful album, and these do make wonderful Valentines gifts as well as birthday and Christmas presents for that special person in your life. And I’m delighted to say that more and more ladies commission shoots like this just for them. Boudoir photography is not the same as Glamour photography which is altogether more risque. I’m often asked if I will create nude images, and the answer is yes providing those images are shot in my vision and lie well within the realms of fine art and good taste.

Our product recommendation for this shoot would be one of our elegant overlay albums (our covers range from fine silks and leathers to funky animal prints) and a large piece of framed wall art.

    I love these shots Lindsay, like you said why stick yourself in a studio when the natural world has so much to offer. Not sure how you’ve lit some of these but the effect is masterful, the model is glowing. The images are daring but simple, I think they have real impact.

    Thanks Jools, we used mostly natural light for this shoot. The key thing is to find the light first and then place your subject in it, arranged to give the direction or effect you want. You’ll see we’ve used side lighting, back lighting, and rim lighting. Placing Emma close to the edge of the woods meant we could also use ‘falloff’ effectively to drop the background down.

    Your work is amazing. I think more and more women will want shoots like this in the future, just beautiful.

    Lindsay, absolutely stunning photographs, natural at its very best, combined with a beautiful model, looking totally at ease, the water must have been rather cold !!! The old trees looked quite fascinating with the model ‘draped’ over them. Must have been quite an interesting sight for passers by. Thank you
