Boudoir Photography for Curvy and Plus Size Women

February 18, 2023

Are you considering boudoir photography? And hesitating: because you are not a UK size 6 or 8 (US size 0 or 2), that your body shape is different to that of Kate Moss? You may wonder: is boudoir photography for me? Or is it just for slim bodies?

As a female boudoir photographer, I can assure you: boudoir photography is for EVERY body shape. All body shapes can be desirable; what you need is an expert photographer who has good understanding of female body shapes, an eye for details and the right skillsets to bring the best out of you.

The average dress size in UK is 14, far from the model prevalent sizes of 6 and 8. There is far too much in general and social media pressuring women, prescribing how we should look, how sexiness is defined. Much of us feel that if we are no longer young, or dress size is not a ‘S’ or ‘M’ label, we are diminished in our appeal. It shouldn’t be the case. If you have self-doubts because your body shape doesn’t conform to the media images in advertisements and magazine covers, having a set of beautifully and tastefully crafted boudoir images can be the best investment to re-establish your self-worth. It is an experience for you to see yourself in a new light, resurrect your belief in yourself, and feel absolutely beautiful.

Empowering women with boudoir photography

I had the pleasure working with many plus size and curvy women. As a female boudoir photographer who is passionate about empowering women, it gives me much joy to see the sparkles in these women’s eyes, when they see themselves in the photos – even  if just on the back of the camera during the shoot. Many of them become emotional seeing their final images presented. These are photos that remind them: they can be sex sirens. Many of my clients indeed tell me that booking the boudoir photography experience was the best thing they have ever done for themselves.

Embrace all body shapes

I create boudoir photos that embrace and enhance women’s curves. For me, being a female boudoir and portrait photographer, having the empathy and understanding that all body shapes are sets the foundation of work. I work with normal women, who have curves and imperfections. It is very different to working with model and celebrities who are stick thin and fluent with posing. My clients may have limited experiences, if any, being in front of professional cameras.

What is in the boudoir photo shoot experience?

Before each photo shoot, I spend time with my clients to understand their style and looks that best suit them. As part of their empowering experience, the boudoir photo session starts with an expert makeup and hair. It is a great way to feel pampered, elevate confidence and get my women camera ready!

During the shoot, I give my clients detailed instructions to maximise their body shapes and emphasize the female hour-glass figures. After all, it is not the absolute body size that makes us look sexy: it is the chest, waist and hip ratio that brings out the siren in us. One of my key magic is to use posing to enhance curves. Complemented with great lighting and styling, women can emerge out of boudoir photography shoot with magazine worthy.
