Taking Boudoir & Glamour Photography to a whole new level !
Dare you take the first step towards unlocking the super-sexy you? Boudoir and glamour photography offers sensual portraits that reveal your inner beauty. As you are pampered, treated, dressed and posed, you will look and feel great and that will shine through the resulting photographs.
The win-win is that he will think it’s a treat for him, but you know it will be a treat for you. Whenever the next bad hair day or moment of feeling low arrives, you will have a permanent reminder of the day that you were a beautiful temptress.
It seems that everyone is learning to love themselves these days. Programmes such as Gok Wan’s ‘How to Look Good Naked’ have encouraged ordinary women to accept their bodies for how they are including their imperfections. Women’s bodies in all their forms have been celebrated in art through the ages from Botticelli’s Birth of Venus to more modern artists such as Picasso and Jim Warren today and yet women still find it difficult to reveal their sexy self. Through boudoir photography, you can capture the moment forever and enjoy it again and again.
Looking sexy is in the eye of the beholder. Your partner loves you the way you are. A boudoir photography session can help you to see yourself through their eyes.
A Boudoir photo session isn’t just about being sexy, it’s about feeling comfortable with your femininity and creating images that have a beautiful and sensual quality to draw in the viewer.
Reasons to Treat Yourself to a Boudoir Photo Shoot
The reasons that women of all ages and shapes choose to book a boudoir photography session are as many as there are women, but here are a few:
- You want to give the man of your dreams a gift that he can always appreciate and never forget. You might choose it as a wedding gift to him or an intimate gift that the two of you can enjoy together.
- You need to boost your self esteem after a bad relationship – show the world what he’s missing and yourself just how beautiful you really are
- Celebrating your birthday – age is just a number and there is beauty in every woman no matter what her age.
- It is something that you have always wanted to do – life’s too short so go ahead and book it!
- You need to find your inner sexy self after having children. Many men find post birth bodies more exciting – what better way to celebrate your life together?
- Life is good and you look and feel fantastic. Have some gorgeous photos taken to remember this moment.
Dont just take our word for it, read this beautiful letter from Miss ‘A’ about her very own boudoir session
The beautiful Miss ‘A’ visited with us and after her shoot sent in the following AMAZING TESTIMONIAL !!!!!
Fast forward to the present day and the discovery of Mr David Purslow and his boudoir photography. I booked my date for the photo shoot and read through the detailed email which was sent through immediately after our phone conversation. I looked at the attached photos, read the shoot instructions, looked at the photos a bit more and started to feel very excited.
Before I knew it, the day had arrived and I made all my necessary preparations and packed my bag. The studio was very easy to find, in beautiful surroundings and David immediately made me feel at ease. I can’t admit to feeling nervous, it was definitely more a feeling of excitement and I just hoped that I would look as good as the other photos I had seen. After three children, my stomach is not the favourite part of my body, so I explained that I would prefer to avoid seeing that area in photos. We discussed what I was hoping to get from the shoot (as a single mum with little time to myself, I wanted to feel sexy and to get a ‘boost’ from the whole experience) and if I had any particular shots in mind.
Then the lovely Gemma arrived and did my hair and make-up and turned me into somebody I didn’t recognise but instantly loved! What a relaxing hour!
The shoot got under way and the time flew by. I could see the shots come up on the TV screen as they were being taken and, even without my glasses on, I was very happy with what I saw. Slowly the items of clothing came off and I felt so at ease that there was no embarrassment – and I’m usually the first person to go bright red!
That was last Tuesday. Yesterday I went to look at the photos and make my choice for my purchase (I actually felt more nervous about seeing the photos than I did about having them done!) To cut a long story short, I don’t think I’ve stopped smiling since seeing the first shot. I’m sat here smiling now just thinking about how good the whole experience has made me feel.
I chose to have a slideshow because of the nature of the photos and the fact that I have three young children in the house. I thought that it would be something I would keep for a private trip down memory lane every now and then. But. David made me look so good in the shots that I want to show it to the world! I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve watched it in the 24 hours since having the link emailed through. It has nearly made me forget that my ex exists! I’ve even shown it to my Mum!
In short, I love it and I’m very proud that I decided to do it. A boudoir shoot with David Purslow was just what the doctor ordered to make me feel sexy and alive again!
We specialise in high quality glamour photography
About our style of boudoir Photography
‘I discovered a secret some time ago: when a woman feels beautiful on the inside she looks amazing on the outside.’
Simple is best: the photographs focus on the subject which is YOU.
You might worry that this is not something that you have done before – but we create a calm, unhurried atmosphere that will relax you and enable you to enjoy the experience.
The aim is to produce elegant, tasteful photographs that look like you, only better than you have ever seen yourself before.
Choosing the Right Boudoir Session for You
There are three main types of Boudoir photography session:
Studio Session – (most popular with our clients)
The photographs are taken at the studio in Worcestershire. The images produced are stunning magazine quality images in the style of glamour and pin-up photography rather than traditional boudoir.
It is possible to use your own home for the shoot which will give your photos that personal touch.
If you prefer a different setting, then we are expert at finding hidden gems when it comes to boutique hotels and bed and breakfast establishments for a boudoir shoot. We can find hotels which offer charm, sophistication and character and the reason for the room booking will be discussed with the owners before the shoot.
Your images and Privacy Guaranteed
We would like to thank the clients who have given us their kind permission to republish the images on this page and the online gallery.
Your images are completely secure and would NEVER be published or shown to others without permission. The boudoir shoots are 100% private and confidential. Once your order is complete, a back-up is made which is locked in a fire safe for one year after which time they are destroyed.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q. I’d like to talk this through, to help me decide whether I want to go ahead – is this possible?
Of course! Everyone has different thoughts and feelings about Boudoir photography and how it would work for them.
Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or give me a call on 01299 253844 or 0759 007 6666. Whenever a booking is made, I always talk it through with the client before the session anyway, to get a good idea of their personality, how they see themselves and what kind of images they are after.
Q. I have never done anything like this before so can I bring along a friend?
You are welcome to bring a friend with you for support. You can both book a session at the same time if you wish.
Q. How is this different from ‘glamour’ photography?
A Boudoir photo session isn’t just about being sexy, it’s about feeling comfortable with your femininity and experimenting with different styles, such as ‘fifties pin-up’ or ‘Hollywood siren’. Whether as a treat for a loved one or a confidence boost for yourself, a Boudoir photo session is good fun, and the end results are stunning.
Q. What should I bring to the shoot?
A. You can never bring too much but you can bring too little – if in doubt, include it and we will help you choose the right items from the selection. High heels show your legs off beautifully and jewellery adds a special sparkle. You might expect to bring sexy lingerie but what about one of his shirts? If he is a man in uniform then bring his jacket or hat. Off the shoulder tactile jumpers, revealing tops, your favourite dress, even great fitting denim jeans will look great.
Q. Who will be at the photo session?
I take the pictures myself, and I use a female hair and makeup stylist unless you decide to do your own hair and makeup.
.Q. Will you air brush my photos?
We will use ALL the skills and tools at our disposal to make sure your images look their very best but they will still look like you. If you have a spot or mark that you would like removed or lightened, or your teeth whitened slightly then we will be happy to oblige. It is possible that the images can be given a good makeover, tweaked and altered, and even air brushed but only to improve on an already great result. We will make you look amazing with great lighting, your gorgeous spirit and our fantastic photography skills and you will be delighted with the results.
Q. Are the photos only done in a studio? Or can I have them taken at my home?
It’s up to you whether you come to my studio near Hartlebury, Worcestershire, or whether we set up the shoot in your own home or another venue of your choosin
Q. How far in advance should I book? Is there a deposit and when do I pay?
There is a forward diary of up to six months for boudoir photography booking. If you would like a boudoir session as part of your wedding photography then reservations can be taken up to 18 months alongside the wedding booking. To secure the date a booking fee of £50.00 is payable which will be taken off the final total. The balance is due any time up to the start of the session and I accept bank transfers, cheques or cash.
Q. Will I have full control of the pictures?
Yes, your Boudoir images will be totally secure and we never use them without your permission. All re-touching and editing is done in our studio, so the pictures do not go anywhere else. It’s always great when a client lets us show their pictures in our online portfolio because it gives others a good idea of what can be achieved
Q. How should I prepare for my Boudoir photo session?
One of the best things you can do is to get a good night’s sleep, so that you are looking and feeling fresh on the day. You could also consider getting a manicure and perhaps a cut and colour, but be very careful with tanning products because streaky tan marks are very difficult to airbrush. The best clothes to wear on the day are loose fitting, so as to avoid pinch marks on the skin.
Q. Do you offer any discounts or special offers / rates?
There are several discounts we can offer and we are always looking for ways to give our clients good value for money with special offers. If you allow us to use your images in our online portfolio, then we will deduct 20% from the bill.
If you’re a police officer or wife of a police officer then we offer a 15% discount.
