Fitness Boudoir Chicago. Another reveal of intimate photography.

In my previous posts I touched upon the topic of variety among boudoir sessions. No two sessions are the same. They are all very unique and arranged for according to clients preferences and level of comfort. Looking at my blog you can see the different character and ambiance of photographs. Some of them are very intimate and seductive. Other are more conservative revealing only a glimpse of a body.

You may also remember my shoot with Laura, a beautiful violinist who actually brought her violin to the session. It was a very magical experience that help us reach a whole new level of intimacy and personality . when it comes to boudoir.

I always encourage clients to make their boudoir experience as personal as possible. We all have hobbies and things we are passionate about – so why not incorporate these passions into our sessions?

Today I wanted to share with you another reveal of boudoir – fitness boudoir. Until recently I was not even sure if fitness boudoir existed … But then I met Alina and I am positive that together we successfully created a whole new genre of boudoir photography. It is obviously an exaggeration and I say it very lightly but it definitely felt as we were creating something new.

Alina is a fitness lover, passionate about sports and a healthy lifestyle. She has worked very hard to transform her body into its mesmerizing form. And she has each and every right to feel proud of it and want it to celebrate it.

We found a fun, urban location near out West Loop studio. Colorful graffiti and industrial elements in the background added an interesting edge to the feel of the shoot.

I hope this is the beginning of an interesting series od passion driven boudoir. Whether you are a book lover, a sport maniac or a professional horse rider , we can create an exciting boudoir session that will reflect your true personality.

Boudoir Session – WHY NOT!

October 1, 2019 / Boudoir
OPEN

I recently asked a friend of mine if she would be interested in having a boudoir session. Mind you she is a busy woman in her mid-forties, a mother of three kids with a plethora of everyday responsibilities that often leave her without a breath not to mention any time for luxury or self-care. I expected a very long list of “why nots” but instead she glanced at me and without any hesitation said “Sure, why not?”

How often do we women carelessly say yes to pleasures and indulgence? How often do we do things that make us feel really special without feeling guilty or like we do not deserve them? My guess is we do not do that often enough.

Instead we come up with all the countless reasons as to why we should not do something that could be potentially very fulfilling, satisfying and liberating. I understand that an intimate boudoir session can make a lot of us feel intimidated and even scared. 

We worry that our bodies are not perfect, that we may need to lose or gain weight before we can undress in front of the camera. Sometimes we feel we are too old for that type of experience. Our self-doubt and fear begin to tell us stories that make it difficult to leave our cozy comfort zones. And there is a rather simple solution to that- let’s not believe too much or take at face value everything our minds are telling us. 

Even though a boudoir session seems stressful for many women, it is really an invaluable opportunity to let go. Let go of fear and self-limiting beliefs. It is a unique time when you can shed your self-consciousness and really immerse in your feminine, sensual energy. The experience of that energy is a priceless reward for the courage you had to step out of your comfort zone.  

So WHY NOT?

Boudoir Session – A Gift for Her

August 12, 2019 / Boudoir
OPEN

 

Inspired by a recent conversation with one of my male friends, I decided to forever resolve doubts regarding whether a man should purchase a boudoir session as a gift for his loved one.

During a social gathering my friend bashfully asked me if I thought it was a good idea for him to book a boudoir session for his wife as a gift for her upcoming birthday. I looked at him quite surprised and said “Of course! Why not?”. He said he wasn’t sure if men should do that and what his wife would think about it after all.

It turns out that he was not the only one who questioned the appropriateness of such gift.

Jewelry, flowers, books and perfumes… They are all wonderful gift ideas but after a while you start to look for something else. Something more unique, special, timeless. A gift that will have a meaning, an impact.  A boudoir session meets all of these criteria. 

There are so many reasons why your wife, girlfriend or fiancé would appreciate a boudoir session. It is a very intimate and often transformational experience that celebrates her body, beauty and femininity. It is your way of telling her how gorgeous and attractive she is to you. It is a gift that can ignite or re-ignite a sparkle of seduction and lust in your relationship. 

Lastly, it is a gift that can give her a permanent boost of confidence and enhance her self-esteem. 

My friend decided to get his wife a boudoir session after all. The results were spectacular and she was very grateful for his thoughtful and creative gift. Needless to say, he was very impressed with the alluring images of his wife as well. 

My advice when it comes to gifts giving is to lean toward more unique gift alternatives- chances are that we all have gotten flowers and jewelry at some point. Being gifted an experience that makes us look and feel beautiful is something that every woman should be offered at least once in her lifetime.

Fine Art Nude Photography. The Many Faces of Boudoir.

Fine Art Nude Photography. The Many Faces of Boudoir.

Boudoir photography has many faces and depending on the photographer, it can have a different mood, energy and style. The client always drives the dynamic of the session by defining their own level of comfort and ease. In other words, the client decides how comfortable they feel in front of the camera and what kind of images they are looking for.

Over the course of my professional work, I have encountered women who wished to reveal only a glimpse of their body as well as those who were comfortable with nude posing. Today, I would like to focus on the latter one and explore the beauty of sophisticated nude photography.  

Despite it being classified as fine artnude photography is a controversial matter. Some believe there is something shameful about posing au naturel, others believe it is distasteful and unacceptable. As a photographer and artist, I respectfully disagree with both of these statements. Having worked with this genre for quite some time, I have learned to appreciate the beauty and simplicity of human body in its most elementary and natural form.

For centuries, artists have been fascinated with human body. Back in ancient Greece and Rome, sculptures and paintings of nude individuals decorated public arenas and many of them have survived to this day. As time went by, the issue of using nude subjects in art has become more and more debatable. There is a very fine line between fine art and something more explicit and every photographer must define where that line is.

Nude art photography can be very subtle. A skillful use of light and shadow can create a very intimate ambiance. It can elicit a mysterious and seductive mood without overly explicit imagery. But seduction is rarely ever the goal of nude art photography.

Clothes create barriers and distract; they define us in often very misleading ways. Clothes let us hide behind a façade. A nude human body is the essence of beauty and vulnerability. Something very profound happens when we are striped out of our outer layers. This is where vulnerability begins. It is this vulnerability more than anything else that makes nude art so unique and powerful.
