Boudoir, pronounced “boo-dwahr” or “boo-dwa” is an old word, specifically dating back to the Victorian era and it was used to mean a lady’s bed chamber, drawing room or suite of rooms. Boudoir’s were typically only found in homes of the very rich, powerful, and well known. The movie, “Marie Antoinette,” starring Kirsten Dunst as Marie frequently shows her in what would have been considered her boudoir. In this day in age, boudoir has become known to describe a variety of different things including certain types of furniture, clothing, and a genre of photography.
Boudoir photography is not mean to be erotic, or revealing. In fact, just the opposite. Boudoir photography is meant to capture a woman’s femininity and to be between herself and her significant other. In many cases, it can be used just for a woman as self confidence boost, to capture her as she is at that very moment because many women do have a time in their lives where they feel they are at their pinnacle of success and beauty. More often, boudoir photography is done as a gift for a significant other prior to a monumental occasion. Be it a surprise gift to her husband on their wedding day, after the wedding while on their honeymoon, Valentine’s Day, birthdays, or many other different occasions.
Beginning in 2012, most of my boudoir photography is being booked through my sister company, The Boudoir. The Boudoir is a joint venture based out of Eau Claire, WI and is a branch of Dewitz Photography. A client choosing boudoir photography may feel vulnerable which is why we strive to keep a solid and incredibly trust worthy foundation backed by the utmost professionalism making you feel very comfortable and secure. I think our work speaks for itself and what you can expect from us at The Boudoir.
