can be revealing without being provocative, as in "art
nudes", or they can be both provocative and revealing. How
they are is up to what you would like and how comfortable you are
the photography session.
women think of boudoir photographs as being about lingerie (or partial
nudes or nudes), but they can also be provocative poses made in normal
clothes, sometimes perhaps worn in an unusual way (such as pulled open
a bit more or pulled up or down a bit more, or worn missing something,
such as overalls or suspenders without a shirt).
pictures can also be fantasy style photographs where you cover yourself
with things besides clothes. For example, one woman wanted to give her
husband a picture that made the point she wished he would stay home
her instead of playing golf so often, so she did a waist up portrait
was topless except for two golf clubs strategically criss-crossed in
of her, with a devilish look on her face. Other sports themes
also been popular, from hunting, fishing, football, and sailing to
skiing, weight lifting, etc. Women also sometimes wear their husband's
or boyfriend's work clothes or uniforms. Office themes, holiday themes,
and food themes are popular.
try to do all my pictures so they are tasteful and psychologically and
artistically interesting. Facial expression and body language play more
of a part in making these pictures look great than does your figure or
mere outward appearance. Few women feel they are attractive
to look good in these kinds of pictures until they see the
product; most then say the pictures look so beautiful "I can't believe
that is me." Almost all the women who have come in for boudoir
said they were really nervous and had never done anything like this
and that they almost did not keep the appointment or wished they had
bottle of wine, but they became comfortable after just the first couple
of pictures. Virtually everyone said, either during or after the
session that they were surprisingly comfortable and that it was really
fun. Most were astonished at how good their pictures looked, and how
they were in them, even before any retouching. Many women have
this was the first time they ever saw themselves as attractive.
biggest problem is they then want to show off their pictures to their
but can't. (Although one woman showed her pictures to her mother; only
to have her mother bring out her similar pictures to show her.)
is really neat to prove to women who are not at all supposedly
desirable by Madison Avenue standards that they are not only sexy
looking but quite beautiful. Many women who pose for boudoir style
photographs are much
older (including women in their 60's and 70's) or much,
heavier than they would have thought you had to be to look good in any
pictures, let alone pictures of this sort. They were amazed at
well they photographed and how good they looked in the pictures.
Contrary to popular opinion, these kinds of pictures depend for their
far more on your attitude than on your shape or age. If you
want to look sexy, you will look sexy in my pictures.

What a true delight you
were to work with!
From the moment I arrived you welcomed me and made me feel comfortable.
I look forward to working with you again. Thank you. -- S.L.
No one who looks at these
pictures would ever
believe I am almost 70 years old; you made me look 35 years younger.
do that?! These pictures are really amazing! -- M. P.
I almost called to
cancel. I was so nervous;
I've never done anything like this before. But it turned out to be
fun, and I relaxed right away. I am totally surprised how comfortable I
felt and how much fun this was. And the pictures are great! Thank
you so much! -- K.S.
The pictures you took
were the best present
my wife has ever given me! And the poses you did of her were
perfect. It was like you knew exactly what I wanted. Thank you.

I always have felt that I
was fat, even in
those times when I had lost a lot of weight. But you have shown me that
I am not fat and that I am beautiful. -- R.M. [through tears of joy]
These pictures are great!
And I really enjoyed
the session -- after the first couple of pictures. This was well worth
the drive [300 miles] to do this. I already know I want to come
and do some more that are even sexier. -- T.R.
I appreciate that you
were very professional.
I have always wanted to do pictures like this, but I was afraid to. I
decided I was just going to go ahead and do it, but I was still really
nervous about it. You made me feel very comfortable, and I love the
I am really glad I did it. -- J.F.
My boyfriend is going to
love these! ... And
if he doesn't, there are plenty of guys who will! -- D.S. [age 62]
Firstly, thanks for
making me feel so comfortable.
You are a true professional. You make a woman feel worthy and
though we see so many flaws in ourselves. Those pictures are
to be a beautiful gift to a very special person in my life. Rick you
not only a professional photographer you are a remarkable person. Thank
you. -- Fay
I saw the article you had
written for the newspaper,
and am just calling to tell you that you took nude pictures of me 30
ago, and I treasure them now even more than I did then. I always
they were beautiful pictures, but now they just mean even a lot more to
me. -- R.E.
I wanted to personally
thank you again
for the boudoir portraits that you did for me. As I told you my
is overseas and this was part of his Christmas package. He
loved receiving them for Christmas. In his package was also a
card and he called me immediately. I will always remember the
in his voice and how proud he was to receive them. He told me he
could live off those pictures instead of the food that was part of his
Holiday Gift. But his gift to me was asking me to marry him as
as he gets back to the USA. You know I was very nervous that day
at first but you were so professional and set me at ease it became a
enjoyable day for me too. I actually felt like I was a
I'm also thankful that you gave me the portraits on a disk just in case
the originals get damaged. If anyone else reads this and are
about doing this for "their man" I fully recommend it. -- P.K.
I am glad you have the CD
packages because we are on a limited budget now, but I wanted to be
able to give my husband some special pictures I knew he would
love. You retouched the ones I really liked, but he enjoys all of
them on his computer. He even has made some slide shows for
himself and added music to them. It makes me feel special and
beautiful that he likes them so much. I never thought of myself
as beautiful or sexy before and most days I still don't, but I have to
say you brought out something in me that I didn't know was even
there. These pictures just amaze me. When we can afford to
have some of the sexier ones printed, we will do that. I am glad
I have them now though. And we had some of the ones that were not
so revealing printed as 5x7s at one of the places you said we could,
and, just like you said, they are professional quality for less than
fifty cents each. I even had one of the nice portraits you took
during the session printed for my mother in an 8x10 for $1.50. That is
even more amazing! She loves it, and thinks I must have spent too much
money on her. I didn't tell her that wasn't true -- or about the rest
of the pictures. Thank you sooooo much! -- M.T.
I am so proud of my latest set of boudoir pictures. Thank you for
making me feel like a beautiful woman. You captured the part of me that
feels attractive, sexy, and desirable. You are so encouraging and have
such creative ideas about posing. I am simply average and have my
flaws, yet you made me look incredible! -- K.G.
I never thought I could
look this good. When I came in I had no intention of posing for
revealing because I was sure that would not look good, but after seeing
the first pictures you took during the session, I trusted your
judgment, and so I was willing to pose
nude. I am glad I did. These pictures are truly
phenomenal. I would
never have thought I could look this good. You do simply amazing
work! -- H. L
