What is Boudoir Photography?


IMG_2497c

The term Boudoir derives from the French verb bouder, meaning “to sulk” or boudeur, meaning “sulky” and it was a lady’s private bedroom, sitting room or dressing room around the 1800’s.  Although a popular genre in the world of photography today, Boudoir is not a new concept and was very much a trend from the 1920s through the 1940s.

Boudoir photography can have many styles and suggest very different images. Typically shot in a photographer’s studio or luxury hotel suites, it has become fashionable to create a set of sensual or sexually suggestive images of women in “boudoir” although nudity is more often implied than explicit.

It is the art of photographing the body and personality while showing the feminine side, creating images where women can see their beauty reflected while providing them with a fun, refreshing and sexy experience. All women, regardless of age or constitution can convey sweetness and seduction. Generally boudoir sessions are intended as a special gift for someone, but it can be an absolutely empowering gift for ladies to celebrate their beauty for themselves. “At the end of it all, it is about the experience itself”

At Jasmandii Studio, we like to bring it up a notch and mix in the style of “Burlesque” using many props and accessories, we create a vintage atmosphere with a cabaret/carnival touch, but mostly artistic. It works perfect for clients who wish to show less skin, but still desire to achieve that sexy look. The Hair and make-up are a vital part of evoking an image of another era and allows us to complete the look that together with the lighting, the costume and the accessories will end up being a resounding piece of art.

No doubt that any woman can fall in love with this style! So be it “Boudoir”, “Burlesque” or simply glamorous and splendorous lingerie detailed session…. Jasmandii Studio, will know how to best highlight your feminine beauty.

Always remember that every woman is beautiful, and confidence and self-esteem are not given to us by other people – It is up to ourselves, we should learn to love our bodies and appreciate it.  Our photography allows us to help our clients discover not only their external beauty but also their inner goddess!

My First Attempt At Portrait


My dear friend Ariana was kind enough to be my lab rat on these photos you see below. I have never tried photographing people professionally and I want to gain some experience. We decided to venture into a few spots around Miami and we pulled it off with literally no help but our bare hands. I learned a lot during this experiment and now I understand why photographers that shoot for fashion travel with a whole crew of assistants. I also learned it would be much better to do this type of “On Location Shoot” during the winter months because Miami’s hot and humid weather this past Saturday was not funny. Not funny at all! Never the less we managed to pull through 5 hours of sweat. I want to thank my beautiful model and dear friend Ariana once more for helping me out!
