WHY EVERY WOMAN NEEDS TO HAVE A BOUDOIR PHOTO SHOOT

Why every Woman needs to have a Boudoir Photo Shoot at least once in her Life Boudoir photo sessions are about making you feel sexy and beautiful, so it would make sense that every woman needs to experience this at least once. Unfortunately in this day and age, women are made to feel that they must look a certain way by society standards but with boudoir, the real you is what makes the photos sexy, not what society says. Boudoir photographers are trained to know how to capture your best assets and angles and make you realize how beautiful you really are. A recent Boudoir client Yvette of Malibu said “I think every woman should do this for herself! Talk about feeling empowered! It was worth every penny.”   In addition to feeling beautiful you should also have a boudoir photo session at least once in your life for these reasons: Encourages you to love yourself Its an excuse to buy cute and sexy lingerie It makes a great gift for the man in your life It will make you feel empowered You will have a memento of your true outer beauty Boudoir sessions are also a great way to celebrate…

THE PERFECT BOUDOIR CHRISTMAS #GIFT

Buying a Christmas #gift can be tough. And, if you’re not getting your loved one a Boudoir Café photo package, gifting can be even tougher. Lucky for you – we have yet another wonderful #gift solution! (Which works perfectly in tandem with a Boudoir Café photo shoot…) My lovely friend, Carla Vaz de Almeida, makes wonderful, hand-crafted shoes. Her company, Lisbon Shoemakers, is getting attention for its elegance (and its edge) in their one-of-a-kind creations. Like the Boudoir Café, Lisbon Shoemakers is creating a unique, quality and sexy name for itself in the fashion and beauty industry. Carla knows that a pair of heels is about identity. When you look at a shoe you want, you can already see yourself wearing them. Shoes complete an outfit – and more importantly, they complete you. Whatever look you are going for (and whatever aesthetic you feel matches your soul), shoes are always the answer. And, especially for a Boudoir Café photo shoot, you want to be able to really feel yourself. No doubt, Carla’s shoes can be the answer for you. Carla draws her inspiration from her home city of Lisbon, Portugal. Full of culture and tradition but also of light and innovation, the…

BOUDOIR PHOTOS: THE CHRISTMAS #GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING

Alright, we know Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Which means… That’s right, so is #Christmas! The Boudoir Café knows how difficult it is to pick out a #gift for your special someone. After all, what do you get someone who already has everything? (And, by “everything,” we mean you, darling.) Shopping on Black Friday poses the risk of injury. Buying a #gift on another day during the holiday season is just tedious. Plus, there is always the risk that you get a #gift that your partner won’t even like. It happens. We know. But it doesn’t lessen the sting of giving your soul mate something they did not like. The Boudoir Café has a pretty awesome #Christmas #gift suggestion: a special, sexy, boudoir photo package. Girls, this is definitely a #gift he will love; and, with The Boudoir Café experience, it is a #gift that you’ll have fun giving, too! And guys, if you get her a Boudoir Café photo package for Christmas it is a double #gift for you too! Not only did you buy your girl a pampering and beauty day to make her (and you) so happy – but you also bought unique, lust-worthy photos to…

HOW TO LOSE THOSE LAST FEW POUNDS

Okay, we’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: curvy is beautiful. Girls, your curves are the reasons men drool after you. Men don’t have curves. They’re all angles, squares, and straight lines. The soft curves of your body are fascinating to them, they crave to get to know the wonders of them. That being said, sometimes we want to tone up. Sometimes, we don’t feel too comfortable with every single centimeter of our curves. And that isn’t a problem. Yes, mainstream media has put this idea of the “perfect female body” into our head. But we’re smart enough to know that that is a bunch of hocus pocus. All of our bodies are already perfect. But, self-confidence often relies on what makes us feel comfortable within our own skin… And sometimes that means dropping that last five to ten pounds of that little bitty weight that is clinging onto us. Now, our healthy and body experts here at The Boudoir Café have a completely easy way to lose that last 5-10 pounds easily! (A piece of advice and self-care which is only one of the many little extra dashes of sweetness that keep us as the #1 Boudoir Photographers in LA and…

THE POWER OF HIGH HEELS

I think we all remember the first time, as little girls, when we tried on high heels. We stumbled like baby giraffes, trying to emulate the way we saw our mothers walk. And later, as teens, it was runway models we had in mind as we slipped on strappy stilettos. And, of course, there is a reason for this. When we saw our mothers walk in high heels, we admired her stature and her grace as our first role models. And then super models became our idols with their smirking, pouty lips and quick and confident strut. Ever since we were dreamy young women, heels have been a symbol of power and adulthood. And for good reason! We now know that when we put on high heels, they lift us above our normal height; in the workplace they lift us above men and above the glass ceiling; and when we down the street (whether it be to the office or to the club) the smart noise the heels make against the concrete assures of our womanly strength. When we wear a pair of heels, we keep our head high and our hopes higher. We are the beautiful and accomplished women…

THE BOUDOIR CAFE IN THE DAILY BEAST

Exciting news, boudoir fans!! The Boudoir Café was featured on the popular current news website, The Daily Beast! :   Journalist Samantha Allen was kind enough to contact me and The Boudoir Café team as prime contributors to her article, “How Boudoir Photos Are Redefining Sexy.” The article itself is lovely, and has a lot of good words to say about boudoir by those who have participated and been changed by it; and by boudoir photographers (including Hedley and myself!) who have found a great passion and art in capturing such intimate and beautiful moments.     Do yourself a favor and read it! Just like a boudoir photoshoot experience itself, it promises not to disappoint. Xoxo, Cherie
