all the boudoir
Be your own
Boudoir Photography Kent
My style of capturing boudoir is elegant, feminine and sensual. I use both natural and artificial light to create beautiful, stylish images that are not in any way the typical ‘glamour’ style you often see in the media. I know how hard it can be for a woman to feel confident in the way she looks and I respect that it’s often taken great courage to make the booking in the first place. Above all else, the session is a beautiful portrait shoot that celebrates you and your natural beauty. I not only want you to feel fantastic after your boudoir session but also leave with a renewed sense of confidence and a boost to your self-esteem.
Sessions are as individual as you and unfold naturally rather than to a set of standard poses; we are, after all, very different from each other. It’s important to me that you have an amazing experience and that the result is not only a set of images that reflect your beautiful self but also images that you feel very proud to own.
Women consider a boudoir shoot for many different reasons, but one of the most popular is for brides-to-be to have something unique and intimate as a gift for their groom. Often brides bring their bridal lingerie and veil, and we can incorporate them into the session to make it extra special.
2023 boudoir collections start at £695 for a digital-only option. For full details of my boudoir collections and products, please contact me – you’ll find a handy contact form at the bottom of this page!

ON THE DAY
BEFORE AND DURING
When you book your shoot, I’ll send you my lingerie guide, which will give you some tips on how to prepare for your session. I’ll also be available in the lead up to the shoot to provide you with any help and advice you need, whether that’s lingerie choices or which sky-high heels to bring!
I have a couple of beautiful locations that I can use for shooting boudoir, which will ensure your images have a stylish and artistic feel. You will, without a doubt, arrive feeling nervous but hopefully excited too.
Each session includes a hair and makeup artist to pamper you before we start shooting, and I guarantee this will help ease those nerves!
The shoot itself is relaxed and unhurried, and we will be shooting for approximately 2-3 hours, during which time I will give you all the gentle direction and guidance you will need.
After the session, you’ll be looking and feeling fabulous, so why not arrange a night out to celebrate!
AFTER THE SHOOT
VIEWING YOUR IMAGES
After your boudoir shoot, I will carefully edit your images individually. Within one to two weeks after your session, you will be able to view your photos in a private password protected gallery, which is available for a limited time. From your gallery, you will be able to choose which images you’d like to keep.
It’s crucial to me that you receive something exquisite to take away at the end of your boudoir experience, and I hope that you choose to print and display some of your images. For this reason, each of my boudoir collections includes some form of printed product, even the digital-only option.
You can, of course, upgrade your package to include additional products.
WHAT DO I BRING?
You’ve taken the time to invest in the shoot, so it makes sense to invest in something special to wear that makes you feel fantastic. I usually advise bringing two or three sets of beautiful lingerie. Often women bring something light in colour like their bridal lingerie and then something dark or black to give a different type of look. You also may want to think outside of the box; a little as a vest and a simple pair of pants can look gorgeous too!
DO YOU DO BRIDAL BOUDOIR?
Yes I do. The outfits you wear are entirely your choice. Often ‘brides to be’ will bring their bridal lingerie and sometimes their veil and these can make some very beautiful images as a surprise for their groom given on the morning of the wedding.
I'M REALLY NERVOUS ABOUT POSING AND FEELING EMBARRASSED
It’s totally understandable, it’s probably way out of your comfort zone, but don’t worry. I don’t expect anyone to act like a model and the shoot is totally in your control. You can be as dressed or undressed as you prefer and you will not be expected to do anything you don’t want to do. I will guide you throughout the shoot and will do everything I can to make you feel comfortable and relaxed. You’ll be surprised how much you enjoy it once you have got over your initial nerves and I guarantee you won’t feel embarrassed at all!
I'M NOT AT ALL PHOTOGENIC AND THERE ARE BITS OF ME I DON'T LIKE
I fully understand, I feel the same way about bits of me too! Please don’t worry it’s my job to make you feel at ease and to put you in poses that compliment your shape. I don’t expect you to act like a model. I will direct you through the whole process, from your position to what to do with your hands. Trust me, you will look amazing.
CAN YOU PHOTOSHOP ME?
I absolutely believe in promoting body confidence and self love. However, I do appreciate that you want to look your best for your photographs. I can remove blemishes which aren’t permanent, for example, acne, bruises, skin rashes etc. But, if you are specifically concerned about something then please let me know, and I will do my best to accommodate during posing.
WHO WILL BE THERE DURING THE SHOOT?
Once your hair and make up has been done it’ll be just you and me. If however you think it will make you feel more comfortable you’re very welcome to bring a friend.
WILL MY PHOTOS BE ON YOUR WEBSITE?
I will never use your photos on my website without your permission; I completely respect your privacy. I may, on occasion, ask a client if I can use a selection of their images for my website but will never do so without their go ahead, and I am happy if they’d like to choose which ones I can use too.
