What is Boudoir Photography All About?
Boudoir is a French word meaning a lady’s salon, a retreat, where a woman can withdraw to be alone. At its core, boudoir photography is an intimate exploration of self-expression and body positivity. It provides a safe space for individuals to shed societal expectations and embrace their bodies exactly as they are. The process involves collaborating with a boudoir photographer who specializes in capturing the essence of your true self, creating a narrative that unfolds through each carefully curated image. Embarking on a boudoir photoshoot is an opportunity to break free from self-doubt and rediscover your inner strength. Traditionally, boudoir shoots would take place in a bedroom. This is still generally true. In recent years, however, there has been a trend to shoot “beach boudoir” which involves the intimate and sensual style of boudoir photography with the natural and serene backdrop of a beach.

What is Fitness Photography All About?
The goal of fitness photography is to showcase the subjects in a way that highlights their strength, athleticism, and dedication to a healthy lifestyle. Fitness photographers often work with athletes, fitness models, or everyday individuals who are passionate about fitness. Aside from gym shoots, these shoots generally occur outside at the beach or in other natural settings to maximize the aesthetic of the images. Fitness photography also includes glitter bath, foil, metallic tape shoots, etc. To see examples of Lacie’s fitness photography or to find out more, click here.

The fun doesn’t end when we stop shooting! It’s time for your photo reveal session. Now you get to see, ooh and ahh over your beautiful images on the big screen of our studio, your home, or in some cases, over zoom. These images will be minimally edited.
