Boudoir Photoshoot


Boudoir Photoshoot in Paris

Here is everything you need to know about boudoir and how to make your photoshoot in Paris the most wonderful experience.

What is boudoir?

Boudoir is a French word used for a woman’s private room. That was the place where she used to dress, met with her girlfriends and kept her deepest secrets. Today we use this term as referring to a sexy and suggestive type of photography that enhances the female beauty and empowers women to feel confident and love themselves.

“If you think that only a professional model can be sexy, I will prove that’s not true.
I will show you that you can also look and feel fabulous”
 Gloria Villa. Boudoir photographer in Paris.

Why should you have a Boudoir photoshoot?

Here is the answer: just because you deserve it. As I deserved it.

Initially, I began to be interested in boudoir photography because I wanted to experience it for myself.

The only problem was that I couldn’t find anything with the style I desired. Most of the photos I found were either vulgar and tacky, or super angelic and conservative.

I was looking for something elegant and classy but at the same time sexy.

And there I was, in my early 30’s feeling sensual and confident, I was willing to ask all the right questions:

  • Why has it taken me so long to accept my body the way it is?
  • How am I going to look in 20 years? How do I want to remember my own body?
  • Is it really that important what everyone thinks about me? Or is it more important what I think about myself?
  • How can I have a boudoir photoshoot that reflects my personality and sensuality in the most flattering and tasteful way possible?

Then I thought… I’m sure I’m not the only one facing the same issue, there has to be a better way. That’s how everything fell into place.

I was a photographer living in Paris and I was going to make it happen for myself and for any other woman who felt the way I did.

So what did I do? I specialized in boudoir photography in Paris. I knew I could do it much better, and let me tell you what I can do for you.

You’re thinking, “I am Not a Model; Will You Tell Me How to Pose”?

Of course I will – you have absolutely nothing to worry about. Directing a boudoir photoshoot is one of my strongest suits. I will guide you completely to accomplish the most seductive poses; highlighting your best features and making you look irresistible. My purpose is that you can relax, enjoy and just be yourself.

We are insecure and, like everyone, we have parts that we don’t like so much or that we’d like to change. Nevertheless, it is important that you understand that when you go into a boudoir photoshoot with me, it is because you trust me and you trust my experience. I will always be thinking about how to bring out the best in you.

Usually, whenever someone is taking a picture of us, it is normal to think, “I might not look at my best” or “there’s a part of my body I’m not happy with”, etc. Don’t worry, even if you feel a little weird in the position I am photographing you in, you will look fantastic on camera.

How to Prepare for your boudoir photoshoot in Paris? Here are some tips…

  • Remove the body hair from your armpits and bikini area. If you wax, it is important that you do it 3 or 4 days before your session to avoid any skin reddening or irritation.
  • Drink a lot of water during the week before your boudoir photography session so your skin looks smooth and soft.
  • Try to have your nails done properly, either painted or not painted, but don’t arrive with them half done or scratched.
  • Before and during the session, wear comfortable, loose clothes to avoid any marks on your skin that could take hours to disappear.
  • The night before, try to catch a good night’s sleep, so your eyes look at their best.
  • Buy your lingerie carefully and with enough time; this way, you will be able to try it on before your session and, if necessary, you will be able to change it without delay. I will also have amazing products at your disposal at my Parisian studio.
  • Last, but not least, prepare yourself to have fun. This will be one of the best experiences of your lifetime.
