Is a Home or location Boudoir Classified Session Right for You?

When you think about having a boudoir classified portrait session, you probably imagine it will take place at a professional photographer’s studio.  The idea of having portraits created of you in your underwear in an unfamiliar place probably can be a little daunting for even the bravest of women and we recognize that. We always try to accommodate our clients and have their comfort as our top priority, which is why we offer boudoir photography sessions both in our studio and on-location. We will travel to your home or preferred location for your private boudoir classified portrait session if that’s what you would prefer.

Why would you want to choose a session in your own home?

  1. you are familiar with your surroundings and will feel more relaxed.  You are used to lounging at home, and this shows in the portraits.
  2. your portraits will have a more intimate or personal touch.  It’s your bed, your coverings, and your accessories.  And just as you chose them because you liked them, so your images will have that familiarity about them that you will admire.  You may have a hobby that we can incorporate – and you will have all the relevant items at home.
  3. you will have available all your lingerie, jewellery, shoes, makeup and a variety of personal props.  So often we hear “I have that at home!” but didn’t bring it to the Studio.  Also, your partner’s wardrobe which can hold a wealth of clothes which will look great on you, and which they will love because it is theirs!
  4. We can use the whole house (assuming everyone is out!).  Boudoir isn’t only the bedroom, it works well in the dining room, lounge, and kitchen. Even the Study or garage can be utilised!  Having your portrait taken in these unusual surrounds adds a sense of excitement to your images.

If you are concerned that your home might not be quite suitable, then we can meet prior to the sitting and discuss the places we will use.  All you need is a window for soft lighting, a door to lean against, a chair to relax in, or pose with.  Professional photographers see a lot of potential in the most unusual places, so don’t dismiss your at-home boudoir session until we have taken a look.

Contact Dean to discuss your sitting further.  This is the time.
Our studio is at the junction of the M6/M61/M65 – so your North West home is likely to be well within our reach!

What is Boudoir ?

What is Boudoir ?

BOUDOIR IS A FRENCH WORD FOR “A WOMAN’S BEDROOM”.

In photography, boudoir is a photographic style featuring intimate, romantic, and sensual images. Women pose in lingerie for fine art photographs to share with their significant other. These types of portraits are sensual and sexy and can be empowering. Nudity is implied and tasteful, it can even be elegant.

These photos are a way to document how great you look and feel about yourself at any season in your life. This type of photography is wildly popular from New York to California and everywhere in between!

Photo albums from boudoir shoots make for the perfect wedding day, holiday, anniversary and birthday gifts. Not to mention, bridal boudoir for a groom’s gift has become extremely popular.

About Me

About Me

Hi. My name is Dean, and I am a professional portrait photographer based in Bamber Bridge, Preston, Lancashire.

I’ve been making professional portraits for well over 33 years now but my interest in photography came early in life – at around 10 years of age.  I grew up in a family where one of my grandad’s hobbies, other than fly fishing, was photography and I remember he used the downstairs bath to develop his black and white negatives (remember them?).  I also remember the grief my granny gave him over the yellow stains he left in the enamel from the developing process!

I became really into portrait photography as a teenager, often photographing friends for amateur and practical photography magazine competitions and, after having some success, I enrolled at my local camera club, Preston Photographic Society.

I worked for a large textile firm back in the early eighties together with my friend Steve, the firm’s chief mechanic. We created the firm’s first photographic club. In 1984 I was headhunted to be a wedding and portrait photographer for a now-defunct professional studio in Church Street, Preston town centre. Here I was given my professional photography training and also excelled in the studios own photographic lab as a darkroom technician. One year later I went professional on my own – setting up my Studio in Bamber Bridge. And I have been here ever since.

Today, together with my wife Sally we are the proud owners of Bamber Bridge’s first and only professional photographic studio.

For the last 33 years, our ground-floor high street Studio has been the go-to studio for easy access for disabled people.

My profession is the best profession in the world, I get to FREEZE TIME!  I capture forever memories you’ll be proud to hang on your walls for years to come. The quality of my work will literally last a lifetime, I guarantee it.

My new presentation boxes have arrived

I absolutely love these!  I recently ordered my samples of presentation boxes (also known as folio boxes) and they are even better than I hoped.  These presentation boxes are available in various sizes/colors and come with the option of either 10 or 20 matted photos.  They make beautiful gifts for your partner (or yourself) that can be proudly displayed if you desire or placed discreetly in a bedside table.  These boxes don’t just come with your mounted prints, we also have various USB options are available to have digital copies of your images. For further information please call 01772 334076 and arrange a chat to discuss your options.

Each box comes with a gorgeous matching carry bag for that finishing touch.

If you are quite a socialite, and have discussed a boudoir session with your friends, it could be worth considering a Boudoir Party Night!  Whether in the Studio or at a selected home, it can be great fun.

What to expect from a Party Night?

  1. It means we can have a longer Portrait session.  We need to ensure that you all have sufficient time and variety of shoots
  2. Whilst one is having her shoot, the others can help each other get changed and style hair – swapping jewellery or shoes to make different outfits.
  3. It gives you time to chill between your shoots – maybe drinks and nibbles are arranged!  Being in the company of friends is relaxing and can boost your confidence.  And if you’re a little shy then a dressing gown is all that is needed!
  4. Being in a ‘home’ will be more relaxing for all of you, rather than in the Studio ante-room.  You can play the music you like and relax on the Sofa until your call for the shoot.
  5. And the shoot is just you and the photographer – otherwise you will all have the fit of the giggles

If you are concerned that your home might not be quite suitable, then we can meet prior to the sitting and discuss the places we will use.  All you need is a window for soft lighting, a door to lean against, a chair to relax in, or pose with.  Professional photographers see a lot of potential in the most unusual places, so don’t dismiss your at-home boudoir session until we have taken a look.
