After meeting internationally-known, award-winning boudoir photographer Angelica Roberts at this year’s Lingerie Fashion Week, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to pick her brain about her job and learn more about what’s involved in a boudoir shoot. What if I’m bloated from my period? Can you make me look slimmer? How do I prepare for a shoot? Angelica, whose work has been featured in “Vogue,” was happy to answer all of our burning questions about boudoir sessions— just in time for me to DO ONE! I’m super excited to work with Angelica, and I’ll obviously be writing about (and maybe if you’re lucky, sharing pictures from) my first boudoir experience on The Frisky, but until then, check out what she had to say to see if a boudoir shoot is for you. (Psst … it is!) Keep reading »

According to boudoir photography, Mariah Carle, sexy photo shoots aren’t just for women anymore. Since opening her business five years ago, Carle has noticed a jump in her male clientele –they now make up about 25 percent of her business. Hence the term “dudeoir.”
“Many men feel good about their bodies and want photos to enjoy when they’re older. Some want to show off their weight loss, and others are looking to spice up their love lives. People think that women are the only ones who want to look and feel sexy. That’s not true,” Carle told Yahoo! Shine.
When shooting a”dudedoir” session, which range in price from $600 to $2,000, Carle makes it a point to “try to get a sense of the man’s personality.” She asks: What are his hobbies? Does his wife have a favorite outfit? His favorite and least favorite body parts? She also gives her male clients the opportunity to choose props like leather-bound books, construction hats, bandanas, or bed sheets. Keep reading »
A lady’s private bedroom, sitting room or dressing room is often referred to as her boudoir. It’s an old-fashioned, Victorian practice which, in modern times, became a popular photography style. Any picture, candid or posed, where the subject is either partially clothed or in lingerie, is considered boudoir style photography. If you’ve flipped through the pages of any magazine, you’ve probably noticed that it is an incredibly popular style for photographing sexy celebs.
No surprise that earlier this week Kim Kardashian posed for yet another picture wearing stockings and lingerie. This time she added a fur coat and pearls to the mix. “Vintage shoot today,” she tweeted, along with the seductive boudoir photos. I’m sure PETA will love them.[Daily Mail UK]

It’s important to love the space you inhabit and, if money allows, make it exactly to your liking. Arguably the most important of all rooms is the bedroom, where you sleep and luxuriate, whether you’re by yourself or with a mate. Your bedroom should be more than just a literal room in which to put a bed: it should be your feminine headquarters, a place that you can perfect your lipstick in flattering tungsten lighting or lotion your limbs in peace. Luckily, just a few simple additions can transform the most basic of sleeping quarters into a sumptuous boudoir fit for a lady. Remember: treat yourself! You deserve it.
Boudoir dressing is undeniably trendy right now, but nobody ever said it was easy to pull off. The concept in and of itself is intimidating — lingerie worn not beneath your clothes, but as your clothes? It’s enough to send me straight back to bed. Though runways and catalogues would like us to believe that you can wear your laciest, most plunging bra as a top, no problem, head-to-toe lingerie styling is best left for the flat-chested, lanky-limbed, and modelesque. If that’s you, well, you’ve pretty much got it made, but for the rest of us who aren’t quite so genetically blessed, there are still plenty of ways to integrate this sensual, ultra-feminine vibe into your every day style.
