Boudoir photography is a beautiful and empowering form of art that celebrates the beauty and sensuality of the human body. However, it’s important to recognize that not everyone feels represented in mainstream boudoir photography. Traditionally, boudoir photography has focused on cisgender, thin, and conventionally attractive bodies, leaving out many individuals who don’t fit into these narrow beauty standards.
As your boudoir photographer, it’s so fucking important to me to embrace diversity and inclusivity in my work. Here are some ways we do so at LRP:
Our studio is not only easily accessible, but we’re welcoming of people of all abilities. Our studio is on the first floor of an easily accessible building, with parking right in front of our door. This means that not only are we wheelchair accessible, but we’ve made sure it’s a safe space where you feel comfortable expressing yourself.
One of the things we pride ourselves on is offering a vast range of posing and styling options that cater to different body types, skin tones, and genders. Our client closet is size-inclusive, and ranges in XS-4XL. We also have worked with over 200 women over the course of our business being open – meaning we’ve worked with, and know how to, pose and flatter all different body types.
Our portfolio is vast, and full of clients of different body types and identities. We don’t turn anyone away (unless, of course, you have an issue with inclusivity). We pride ourselves on our ability to not only provide a safe and warm environment, but are committed to inclusivity. With that said, you may say, “Sharla, why don’t I see…. In your portfolio?” Well, let me tell you why. Because while we’re committed to displaying – and working with – ALL different types of womxn; one of the most important aspects of our business is respecting privacy. Every single client you see on our website, socials, and in our VIP has signed a specific privacy agreement, granting us that permission. We may hold copyright, but you hold the full power of what we do and don’t do with your photos.
Boudoir photography is all about celebrating the unique beauty and sensuality of each individual, and that is exactly why I encourage you to not only embrace your individuality, but also to celebrate your uniqueness. This may mean highlighting scars, tattoos, or other physical features that make you feel confident and empowered, or having you bring in some props that make you YOU.
Y’all, we pride ourselves in understanding the importance of providing a judgment-free zone where you feel comfortable expressing yourself. I promise you, from the beginning, there is absolutely no “right” or “wrong” way to look or pose. Let go of your insecurities, and let me help you to embrace your body just as they are.
As you can see, boudoir photography has the power to celebrate the beauty and sensuality of every body. As your photographer, it’s incredibly important to me to embrace diversity and inclusivity in my work, and strive to provide a safe and empowering space for clients of all backgrounds and identities to celebrate their bodies, one session at a time.
