Boudoir in Black & White

"boudoir photography san francisco"There's something so dreamy and romantic about black and white in boudoir photography.  Something raw and mesmerizing that grips you and pulls you into the subject.  Color would just distract you.  Color would tempt you.  Color would have you gaze only at her clothes, the room around her, the superficial details.

What really matters, what really draws you in and makes you see a little deeper, is her.





The monotone landscape emphasizes the more subtle details of her - the soft eyelashes, delicate collar bones, and gently sloping thighs.  Light and Shadow dance along those curves and lines that form her shape, hinting at something more that lies beneath.  Something just below the surface.  Something left only to your imagination.

  1. these are lovely! i never really got into shooting boudoir. i thought about it and i think i'm way too shy having a stranger take their clothes off. :P but a lot of my friends have done it, and i know they love it too!

  2. So nice! Your use of light and shadow really brings out her best features.

  3. I thought I'd be a bit shy/uncomfortable at first too but I actually really love shooting it. It's not so much about the clothes for me (on or off!) as it is about the woman and capturing her feeling confident and proud and feminine, and all the other good things we SHOULD feel about ourselves!

  4. Thanks so much! I try to think about it as sculpting the body with light to highlight all the best parts. :)
