​​On Location or Studio

The term "boudoir" is a genre of photography. Typically shot on location, luxury hotel suites or a photographer's studio, it has become fashionable to create a set of sensual or sexually suggestive images of women in "boudoir style". It is distinct from glamour and art nude photography in that it is usually more implied rather than explicit in its approach to nudity and sexuality, features subjects who do not regularly model, and produces images which are not intended to be seen by a wide audience, but rather to remain under the control of the client. The most common manifestation of contemporary boudoir photography is to take variations of candid and posed photographs of the subject partly clothed or in lingerie. Commercially the genre is often (though not exclusively) derived from a market for brides to surprise their future husbands by gifting the images on or before their wedding day. Other motivations or inspiration for boudoir photography shoots include anniversaries, birthdays, Valentine's Day, weight loss regimes, other form of body change or alteration and for servicemen overseas.

Historically, the boudoir formed part of the private suite of rooms of a lady, for bathing and dressing, adjacent to her bedchamber. Boudoir photography is not generally a new concept, dating back to the late 1800's. It has seen a resurgence of popularity in recent years, perhaps more in demand than ever.
