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…

PERSONAL PORTRAITS JUST FOR YOU

Happy autumn darlings! Sooo not only is The Boudoir Cafe the #1 best boudoir photographer in LA, we also happen to be one of the top general photographers as well! Yes, our boudoir is renowned --- but so is the work of our other photo studio, CherieFoto. My style -- and indeed the style of Hedley and everyone on our wonderful team -- tends to the innovative, the imaginative, the whimsical, and (often) reaches into the deep recesses of the sublime. Truly, there is no one word that can define our aesthetic. Every photograph is different, every photograph reveals a new realm of art. One of the most intriguing subjects in art has been, and continues to be, the art of the portrait. Ever since human beings learned to draw, they began to draw the individuals around them. It speaks to our unending desire to learn about others, to draw them closer to ourselves, to glimpse into what is unknown to us: the workings of a human being. Portraits, in and of themselves, have layers upon layers upon layers of meaning. From the pose to the facial expression and all the way to the background, within a portrait is hidden…

ANY WOMAN CAN DO A BOUDOIR PHOTOSHOOT

Hi darlings! Here in LA we have a saying: "Any woman can be a porn star." I think this is a little much. However, if you analyze what it is trying to say, you realize that there is not only much reality behind it, but much reality as well. In essence, the saying means this: inside every woman, there is a sexual goddess. There is sexuality in every woman. And every woman has the right, and the ability, to explore, embrace, and flaunt this part of herself. But not every woman does. In fact dear reader (as you may know) most women can't even think of themselves as beautiful, nonetheless sexy. Hedley, me, and the team at The Boudoir Cafe thinks this is a real problem. Women deserve to feel gorgeous, to feel sexy. They should be able to look in the mirror and say: "Yes, I look good." They should be able to walk down the street the same way. They should feel this way naked, clothed, or in between. The Boudoir Cafe is devoted to making every woman discover this part of herself, and embrace this part of herself. Here at The Boudoir Cafe, we know it takes…

THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO PIN-UP VERSUS BOUDOIR!!

Hi loves! The Boudoir Cafe team always gets asked this question: what is the difference between pin-up and boudoir? Understandably, it's easy to get confused between pin-up and boudoir. They are both sexy, tasteful photographs done in a fun photoshoot environment, and they are both meant to help you find that sexy side of yourself. Except there are a few key differences between pin-up and boudoir. When we say pin-up, we are taken back to the early 1900's, when these photos first became popular. As a result of the sexual repression of the previous eras -- and the dawning of this first sexually-accepting one -- pin-up photos became popular. "Pin-up" refers to photos of women that are meant to be pinned up on walls, to be admired. It was burlesque performers who first started this trend of posing for pin-up photos, in order to advertise themselves. The pin-up photos of course did not bare too much nudity, as this was still a taboo. The girls were mostly clothed (though the outfits are noticeably tight and formfitting) and were usually in a playful pose; and instead used a certain glance (usually one of surprise) to signify the true, underlying meaning of…

PLUS SIZE BOUDOIR IS BEAUTIFUL BOUDOIR

Hello all my lovely ladies of all shapes, sizes, genders, and abilities! The power of boudoir is that it recognizes the beauty in every woman. Because every woman is beautiful. The team at The Boudoir Cafe has had the pleasure of working with plus size girls -- of which we say: Plus Size? How about natural, normal, gorgeous size. Though the industry has coined the term "Plus Size," we don't necessarily believe in it, because it implies that this is a specific category of girl recognized for her beauty apart from a norm unhealthily established by the industry. Girls can be -- and should be -- any size or shape they want, whatever size or shape their body is naturally. Because natural is beautiful. Hedley, the team, and I believe in body empowerment, in positive body outlook. This is part of what makes our job at The Boudoir Cafe feel less like a job, and more like a purpose enjoyably fulfilled. We have found our passion in boudoir photography because it shows every girl that they are beautiful, they are sexy -- and most of all, that those two things come from being uniquely themselves. Boudoir is freeing, it is…

KOREAN NAIL ART AND BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHY

Hi wonderful world and beautiful readers! We had the total pleasure of hosting four beautiful Korean women today to do a photo shoot for one of the girls. Hany was amazing and her friends came along to help her to make her fell loved and pampered during this process and experience!! Well to tell you the truth it was an amazing afternoon -- all the girls had an absolute blast!! This really made me think of something that is important to us at The Boudoir Cafe: making sure all cultures feel comfortable in their own skin, wherever they are. In this country, we have this great right of freedom, and such a huge amount of acceptance. The final passage of marriage equality shows how we are making leaps of tolerance. But I want to talk about more than tolerance here. I want to talk about cultural pride, loving one's own skin because of the heritage, ethnicity, and history you own in yourself. The Boudoir Cafe -- Hedley, me, and our team -- love seeing girls' cultures show through in their photographs. It is a part of them; and not only that, it is a part of them that makes them…

BOUDOIR GROOM GIFTS!!

Hello all! I hope you have had a wonderful and lovely week. I just wanted to share a piece of gifting advice for those special someones out there getting married: We recently did an interview with The Plunge, the #1 wedding planning website for men. We talked to them a little bit about boudoir photography, and why it's a preeeetty good idea for their lady to do a boudoir shoot as a groom gift. So we just thought we'd let you know that The Boudoir Cafe does special boudoir photography packages so you can give your future hubby the gift that keeps on giving: a set of sexy boudoir photographs before the wedding. Hedley and our team love nothing more than seeing women come in with the glow of being on the eve of their wedding. They're bright, they're hopeful, they're expectant. Brides, let me tell you: you really do practically glow. As you may know, at The Boudoir Cafe, we do your hair and makeup as part of the boudoir shoot. You will be looking practically wedding-ready... but with a touch of that after-wedding sultriness you know you have in you. And oh my goodness, when you put on…
