I am sure you’ve seen these teasing the senses images all over Facebook and Instagram. Boudoir Photography has become very popular as photography genre in the last couple of years. What is Boudoir Photography? Here’s what it is and why every woman needs a boudoir photography experience.


noun bou·doir \ˈbü-ˌdwärˈ\:  a woman’s dressing room, bedroom, or private sitting room.

Boudoir photography is intimately photographing a woman in a bedroom setting. That’s the literal meaning and doesn’t really do justice to what boudoir photography is really all about. Boudoir Photography is so much more than just pictures.

It’s about You, your Beauty and Femininity.

Boudoir photography helps women of all shapes, sizes, and colors see how beautiful they truly are. It is about empowering women. The power of a photograph can change lives. There is nothing as amazing as seeing a woman who has been self-conscious her entire life get a boudoir photo shoot done and turn into the best version of herself. There aren’t many jobs where you can witness someone changing right in front of your eyes. I have the best job in the world!

My mission as a photographer is to make every woman feel beautiful and self-confident, no matter who she is and what she’s been through. If you’ve gained weight, if you’ve lost weight, if you have kids, if you’ve just experienced a breakup or divorce, if you just got married, if you just want to celebrate you, you deserve to feel beautiful!

Boudoir photography also doesn’t have to mean lingerie. There are so many options for what to wear depending on your style. Boudoir is more about the experience and how the photographs make you feel at the end, than about what you wear. You can feel just as sexy and beautiful in a satin robe, as you can feel in a lace teddy with heels on!

A great first step is to figure out your style by picking 3 words that you’d like to describe your boudoir experience. For example, if the words fun, playful, and flirty are the first that come to mind, then you can choose pieces of clothing that will create that image.

I asked one of my clients to write about her boudoir experience with me. Here is what she wrote:

"I'm a mom and a wife and I mostly dedicate my time to my kids and my husband not realizing that sometimes I need to take care of myself too. Being over 40 with grown up kids I realized that slowly they become more independent, and my husband and I are starting to get our life back as a loving couple. I realized that all these years I let myself go and I forgot to really enjoy those beautiful romantic nights with my husband. I knew that in order to spice things up in our relationship I need to first feel happy with myself and especially with my body. I started working out, eating healthy and reshaped my body because I wanted to feel sexy again like I felt before the kids. I promised myself that when that day comes and feel comfortable in my own skin I will have Katerina help me with one of the most amazing gifts for my husband and for myself. Never thought that my experience with Katerina would be so much fun, and that would make me feel so good about myself. It truly gave me a confidence boost and made me feel so much better about myself.  It was definitely an amazing Christmas present for my husband who loved every single picture.

Thank you Katerina for the amazing experience and photographs. I think those are the most creative beautiful pictures I've ever had. You are a true talent." (Mrs. M)


I’ve recently read somewhere that approximately 91% of women are unhappy with their bodies and resort to dieting to achieve their ideal body shape. Unfortunately, only 5% of women naturally possess the body type often portrayed by Americans in the media.

The media is forcing us to feel bad about ourselves every day. Our daughters are growing up watching us tear each other down. How do we stop this? This is why boudoir photography is so important. Every woman needs a boudoir experience because every woman deserves to feel amazing in their own skin, exactly how they are right now.

Boudoir photography is for any shape, size, color, and age. There is no perfect body. YOU are your perfect body.
