Photography by Lindsey LaRue
Today we want to talk a little bit about something that we feel has been misunderstood in this industry. Fine Art boudoir means bringing a woman in front of the lens, and allowing her to express herself, become vulnerable by showcasing her imperfections and inner ambitions, in the form of a session. Sometimes that session is originally meant to be a gift for a loved one that goes weak in the knees at her quirks, or it's just a celebration of a milestone in her life. Either way, she should be walking out of that studio feeling like the hottest shit that ever was.
Now, whatever you need to do to get her there is between the two of you and the camera. For some women, this means to bring out all the subtle sex appeal, others it means to use flirty eyes and cute, cozy clothing that show just a peek of her sensuality. The fine art comes in with the photographer. It's how you capture her curves, expressions, and sexuality that makes the difference between a piece of art and an objectifying image of a woman.
To us, our very favorite aesthetic of photography is ethereal, light, and soft. This doesn't mean that the moody, heavy shadowed work is NOT fine art, or that it is any less appealing. We just have an affinity for the airy, film look, so this is what we tend to feature. We know that we aren't the publication for all photographers, but we hope to be a safe haven to those photographers that resonate with our core message, giving them a place to find inspiration and share their images to inspire others. It is our wish for every type of photographer and artist to find a home, and we hope that you will find sanctuary in us.
This session by Lindsey LaRue beautifully shows how a woman's sex appeal can be captured in a fine art way. She feels empowered by exploring herself and her sexuality, while still being photographed in a way that is empowering, and non-objectifying.
So ladies, today we want to tell you: it is okay to be sexy in your boudoir session, and being such does not make your session any less "fine art".
