What is boudoir photography? It's a common question that has more than one answer, depending on who you ask. One thing is for certain, if you're looking to schedule you're own photo shoot, you should look for a photographer who shares your vision. Let us tell you how we define boudoir the Shy Vixen way!
You may already be thinking Spring, but if your skin is dry, dull and flaky, stepping into slinky lingerie for a boudoir photo shoot is probably the last thing on your mind. Luckily, with a little extra effort and some key products, you can reverse winter’s harsh effects and reveal smoother, brighter skin that will look perfect in your photographs.
Do men belong in boudoir? Typical boudoir photos almost exclusively use female subjects and many photographers outright refuse to shoot men, offering their services to women only. But don't let what's typical make you think that a boudoir shoot can't be a couple's affair. In fact, we think that a couple's shoot is a fantastic way to bring couples closer, celebrate your relationship, and ignite much more than a spark! We love love, and we're proud to help you showcase the special bond between you and your partner regardless of gender or sexuality.

When most people think boudoir, a few common themes come to mind: a beautiful bed, seductive lingerie, candles. After all, the word “boudoir” by definition refers to a woman’s private quarters, typically used for relaxation and pampering. While we love a good traditional shoot at Shy Vixen, we also go beyond the bedroom! Your photos should showcase your unique personality, and sometimes that means stepping outside the boudoir and into a completely new backdrop.
Few styles stand the test of time like the classic pin-up. At Shy Vixen we love the playful sensuality of vintage portraits and illustrations, and we’d be more than happy to help you recreate the pin-up look of your dreams!
