Body shapes or 5 a day?

Pear, banana or apple – seriously, you would be forgiven for thinking that I am talking about your 5 a day! No, I am talking about body shapes. There are many variations of the same type and unfortunately, they all perpetuate the false idea that there’s an “ideal” or “most desirable” body type. Do you know your body shape? Do you actually care? Trends can change so quickly so what happens when one year your trendy body shape becomes ‘passé’?

The “perfect” female (and male) body has greatly changed over the years, even though the foundation of the female form has stayed the same. When I look at Marilyn Monroe who was the sex symbol of the 50s, she would be considered size plus now and would have to fight really hard to get to a front page of a magazine nowadays. And probably, with Marilyn on the cover, it would be global news as ‘cutting edge’.

The good news is that when you book a photo session with us, Martin’s camera lens does not care about your body shape! In fact, the camera is there, literally focused, on your beauty, your personality, your smile. The most important part of the boudoir photo shoot is having fun and letting go of the idea of ‘perfect’ that we see in the magazines. Forget about your insecurities and what type of fruit your body shape is. This is your time and it is for you to shine. 

All the trends, they come and go. What matters is how you feel about yourself which can be captured in a beautiful set of pictures that will always bring a smile on our face. Imagine your granddaughter looking at your photos in years to come, having a conversation about what the beauty trends ‘back in the day’. She would think: ‘ my gradma rocked!’

Perhaps we will see you soon in our boudoir Exeter based studio to show you how beautiful you really are, regardless of your shape! 


Boudoir photography is so much more than posing in your knickers…

Most importantly the label ‘boudoir’ is not what you should be focussing on.  It is a portrait shoot that not only celebrates who you are but how you feel about yourself and usually involves lingerie and you looking your absolute best. What a great experience to gift yourself!

I recently had my make up and hair done for my wedding in June. I loved every minute of it of this personal pampering. I was sitting there with nothing else to do apart from chatting about little things and having a few giggles. I realised that I am stuck with my morning 5-minute make up routine and I actually forgot what it is like to take time out just for myself, to focus on my face, eyelashes, lips and cheekbones. It was great fun to try new colours, new products and to switch off for a minute from my busy day to day… you know, to feel a little bit special.

As part of our service, we offer professional hair styling and make-up that will highlight your inner beauty. It is a hugely transformative experience that will do amazing things for your confidence and self-esteem.  And that is why we love to shoot boudoir so much. That is why it is so important to us that we offer hair styling and make up with a professional artist when you book a photo session with us in our Exeter based studio. You will feel special and pampered, just as I felt when I had my make up done for my wedding. Having time just for yourself when someone else is taking care of you –yes, please!

So, boudoir photography experience is so much more than posing in your lingerie. In fact, it is a very natural follow up to the whole pampering process when you slowly start to get in touch with your feminine side, the one that perhaps does not show between going to work, doing laundry and watching Netflix in your PJs!

Perhaps we will see you soon in our Exeter based studio for another creative adventure?
