When most people think of boudoir photography, they imagine barely-there lace, silk and leather outfits, or perhaps no outfit at all. Surely, our social media and website are filled with images of our stunning clients in (almost) equally gorgeous lingerie. 

You don’t HAVE to wear such styles of lingerie.  We get asked a lot, “do I have to wear something revealing,” or, “do I have to get naked?” No. Your boudoir experience is all about you, which means you get to wear what you want and you only reveal as much as you are comfortable with revealing. You don’t have to wear lingerie at all really. We have clients who do “in the sheets”, oversized shirts, sports jerseys, and a whole variety of other outfits that may not coincide with someone else’s view of sexy. 

Sexy has a very broad definition. What I find sexy, you might not, and vice versa. That’s not just okay – it’s great! Diversity is what makes life beautiful and interesting. One of the reasons we have our clients bring in their own lingerie for their photoshoot is because it allows them to display their unique style and personality. 

All this to say that if you are a more modest woman, you can still enjoy the experience and confidence-boosting benefits of boudoir.

Not only do we love lingerie in all its beautiful variations, but we also love being able to share other amazing, woman-owned businesses here in Vancouver, BC with our clients. So when we discovered NK Imode we knew we had to share them with you. 

The stunning silk lingerie made at NK Imode is perfect for our modest clients! There are also amazing pieces for our clients looking to stock up on comfy lounge wear at home, or the perfect robe to bring to their photoshoot to keep warm in between shots. 

Your boudoir photoshoot is all about you! We want your lingerie to reflect your style and your version of sexy. When our clients come to us for a photoshoot, we want you to feel comfortable and confident from the moment you walk through our studio door. If you consider yourself more modest, or you are looking for a less revealing style, you absolutely can rock a boudoir photoshoot.
