Why Your Home Just Might Be the Best Place for Your Boudoir Photography Session

Boudoir Photography In Your Home-0017Yes, I touched on this a bit last week but we’re going in. So….I get this lovely inquiry from A. She wants to know if I do on-location boudoir photography because she lives in a seriously old farm home that she and her husband are restoring and the kitchen is amazing. It also happens to be the only room in the house that is finished, but it’s amazing (and yes…it really is amazing).

I show up and immediately fall in love with this house. Not surprisingly, the room I am least excited to photograph in was the finished kitchen. Now, don’t misunderstand me, this kitchen is gorgeous. I mean, the details are incredible…but I’m a girl that loves getting her hands dirty so when I asked A if she could show me the rest of house, after a moment of “What in the world do you want to do that for??”, off we went to tour A’s home. It was incredible. Beat up walls here, little hidey holes there…all I did was follow the light; A’s home provided the lovely backdrop.

Not surprisingly, some of A’s favorite photos were from rooms outside of the kitchen! Wow did we have so much fun going from room to room and coming up with ideas on how to best express each room with each outfit. Creatively, for me, it was a deep, long exhale. I just loved it.

So here is the lesson: never underestimate how perfect your home just might be for a session. Everyone thinks they have to have a glamorous estate for good photography but truthfully, all you need is good light. And that’s not to be confused with a lot of light. One of my absolute favorite sets had us in a tiny hidey hole with my ISO up on 20,000. It was perfect.

A thought her entire session was going to be in one, finished room. Wow was she wrong. 😉
