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.
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 and Sally made me feel totally relaxed throughout my photo shoot. Despite my anxieties about ‘exposing’ myself in front of strangers, they were professional, friendly and reassuring. The resulting photographs are amazing and I’ve bought them all!
All in all, really, really good fun. A fantastic experience and a great present for my husband.”
“I am so glad I found Dean, it was well worth it! The experience was amazing! I would never usually do anything like this because I am a bit self conscious, but Dean and Sally make you feel so comfortable, (and Dean makes you laugh A LOT) and it is so much fun to do. I was so excited to see what images Dean had created and I was really pleased with the outcome. The final pictures are fantastic and its definitely an experience I will be going back for! I’m telling everybody about it!.”
“"Wow" This was so much fun. I am someone who is not always very comfortable with my own body, but that day I felt sexy and gorgeous. The staff were professional, helpful and friendly. I should of had a 2 hour session but got well over three and a half, It was great. I was so insecure about everything and how the pictures would turn out but thanks to Dean and Sally, I had nothing to worry about. I looked FANTASTIC, I couldn’t believe the pictures are so beautiful. This is an experience that no woman should miss out on. I had the most amazing time and really, REALLY, LOVE MY PICTURES. Thanks Dean"
