California Dancer, Boudoir Photography or Art?

Is it Dance Photography, Boudoir Photography or Art?

I’d say this session is all three of those things. The photos are free from the stereotypical ideas of what each subject should look like. I love sessions like this one, because I get to combine aspects from many different kinds of photography together. My background in fashion photography has left me with a really good understanding of studio lighting. Playing with studio lighting is one of my favorite things to do. This kind of session boudoir photography requires a certain amount of trust. I have to trust in my creative flow, trust that magic will happen, and trust that being in the moment will pay off.

I hope you are inspired by these images!

Oakland CA boudoir photographer

Over the years I’ve developed a serious love for boudoir photography. My studio has wonderful natural light and professional lighting equipment for those times when natural light isn’t perfect. My boudoir photography is for you, the woman, the mother, the wife, the imperfect beauty, the personality, the emotions, and the real you. I create tasteful artistic images that honor you and your body. Be it as an album or wall art, the final product is an heirloom photo collection that will be cherished for years. Boudoir can be scary, but I will walk you through all the steps, so all you have to do is enjoy the experience.
