The best way to stop time is a photograph

Boudoir Portraits are a beautifully sensual photographic art form, taken in the style of earlier times, but very much in vogue today.  It empowers you to show off your sexiest lingerie and accessories – in warm and sumptuous studio sets. Boudoir is strongly influenced by American burlesque and 50’s-style pin-up images. It’s also great for soft fun-fantasy images (such as seen in high street shops like Ann Summers).   Magazine perfection – feel amazing, look stunning…

Since the late 80′s Dean and Sally have been shooting sensual images of women, whether, in their own home, a hotel room set or in the studio the sessions have always produced award winning images of distinction, many of which have won him photographic national professional awards.

Boudoir. Creative. Stylish.

Award-Winning. Classified

Over the years I have had the pleasure of working with so many wonderful ladies, from all walks of life and places.

I am always amazed at your before and after images at just how beautiful you are.

The Boudoir Sessions

The Boudoir sessions are designed to bring out the very best in a woman, some images are more dramatic even abstract by design, to give an edge to his photography to make sure that the images when hung on a wall as decor look and feel like art. Women who have been through the experience often say it has given them a new beginning at that time in their lives, filling them with a new found confidence and sensuality, allowing them to go off and explore a different side of their personality.

A Classic Boudoir session is often reminiscent of a ladies bedroom scene, with warm tones and soft furnishings but can also be brought right up to date with funky locations and sets.

The Boudoir sessions were often instigated as a gift for a loved one, but this has changed as now many women are using the session as a celebration of looking and/or feeling the best they have ever felt, in looks, sexuality and at times in fantasy. A Boudoir session will give you a real kick of confidence and images to remember the experience as well as the way you feel at the peak of your sensuality.

Dean's Top Tips for Getting the best out of your Boudoir Session

In boudoir, photography preparation is essential to getting a great result, so before your session, it’s important to set the boundaries.


The most important thing is that you are feeling comfortable and relaxed, this is the key to a successful session. To this end, I highly recommend a pre-shoot consultation – ideally at the studio.

This will enable me to talk about ideas, outfits, and styles so that on the day of the shoot everyone is comfortable and relaxed. Props typically include lingerie, corsets, cami knickers, stockings, shoes, jewelry, etc. You will, of course, be able to change in our separate changing room.

Where do you want to be?  It could be anywhere!  How do you want to look?  The choice is all yours…
