The Boudoir Experience with Sisters Essence Photography

We like to think of your Boudoir photo shoot with us as the perfect little indulgence for yourself!

We are lots of fun and sophisticated all in one – And we want our girls having fun while feeling comfortable in their own beautiful bodies! We strive on being creative and bringing an artistic appeal to each and every photo shoot so we’ll collaborate with you on making it the most amazing experience for you. A Boudoir photography session can be intimidating but only at first, we assure you. It’s a sensual, intimate, and sexy photo shoot which we make a BLAST!!! It can take an everyday woman who isn’t feeling sexy and when she partakes in our boudoir experience instantly feels pampered, gorgeous, feminine, and confident! We shoot to your comfort and can work with any wardrobe, lingerie or props you have in mind. Most women opt for sexy lacey lingerie or something they feel truly beautiful and womanly in.

Great Perks When Working With Us:

Boudoir Posing – We believe posing is personal but we’re also extremely educated and knowledgeable on what poses will compliment your physical attributes the most. We’ve taken a 3-day course strictly on posing. Every aspect from the tip of your head, to the tip of your nose, to the way you position your body – we know how to achieve your best poses to accentuate your best features. For poses, we compliment not only your best physical attributes but incorporate your personality as well.

Do we photograph real women? Yes! We’ve never hired models of any size. All of the women in our photos are all real women. Boudoir is for every single BODY, and each pose gives us another portrayal of your personality. Do you sometimes feel a bit wild? A bit shy? Do you sometimes feel both at once? We portray all of this in the poses. Your personality is such a big part of what makes you beautiful and uniquely YOU!

Retouching – We do light retouching on every image unless asked otherwise. When editing images, we normally remove stretch marks, any skin irritations or hives, blemishes, and bruises but we do believe in leaving scars, freckles, birthmarks, and moles. The reason we love leaving scars is because this hits close to home since one of our photographers, Sarah, has scars from reconstructive surgery from beating breast cancer and they’re a part of her – A part of what makes her – her. It’s a part of her journey and tells her story while showing her strength in overcoming such a battle. And there is nothing more beautiful than that.

We always ask, for example, “Oh I see you had knee surgery, would you like me to remove the scar from photos?” If you want to leave that scar because it’s part of your story and makes you – you – then we’ll gladly leave it. We firmly support being perfectly imperfect…aren’t we all that way, after all?

We are so excited to work with you and make you feel beautiful and empowered! Take some time and do this for you!
