WHAT IS BOUDOIR?

If you look up what boudoir literally means in Wikipedia, you'll find the following: "A boudoir was a popular, usually elegantly furnished room in the eighteenth century, especially in France, where the lady of the house could retreat. Originally, the boudoir was the room located next to the woman's bedroom, where she could wash and dress."

Boudoir and self-love 
Even back then, there was a link to the sensuality of women, and boudoir has truly evolved into its own unique style of photography where you, as a woman, are at the center. It may involve seduction, but it certainly doesn't have to.

First and foremost, in my view, it's about self-love as a woman, where your sensuality can certainly be expressed. Your feminine power, being connected to that part of ourselves that we sometimes hide or only see in relation to a partner. It's yours, and you're allowed to show it to yourself, experience it, acknowledge it.


In a form that suits you Boudoir, with its sensuality, can be something exciting, even taboo for some, or something that we don't see fitting for ourselves. But precisely because boudoir can be shown in various forms, it's accessible to many women. Yes, it can be completely nude or in lingerie, but it can also be just as beautiful in an oversized sweater (definitely read my tips on what to wear to a boudoir shoot).


Nudity isn't the essence, but rather the love for yourself and what makes you uniquely you. That, in my opinion, is something that can be shown in any form.
