MYTH VS. REALITY
BOUDOIR MELBOURNE

These are five of the most common boudoir myths, and the reality behind each one.

YES, you need to know these!

Boudoir is a French word that translates to a woman’s bedroom or private sitting room. So, does a Boudoir Photoshoot mean bedroom photoshoot? Not by a long shot. Let’s talk about it.

At Le Chat Noir Boudoir, I define boudoir as an empowering experience that allows women to find confidence, beauty, and power in their own skin. Boudoir is a very personal and intimate form of photography. It is an artistic expression in which you allow your photographer to transform you into a living canvas. Each photo expresses stories of self-love, self- discovery, and the re-discovery of the woman within.

It is my ultimate goal to ensure that you embrace boudoir as not just a photoshoot, but an experience. The encounter that you will have with the woman behind the lens will amaze you. You will not leave my studio the same woman in which you came. I’m here to cheer you on every step of the way of your journey.

THESE ARE THE 5 MYTHS

1. Boudoir photography is only for models or individuals with a certain body type.

REALITY: Boudoir photography is inclusive and celebrates bodies of all shapes, sizes, ages, and genders. It is more about embracing individuality and finding beauty in every person than stigmas or beauty standards.

2. Boudoir photography is solely about nudity or explicit images.

Reality: While boudoir photography can include sensual or suggestive elements, it is not limited to nudity or explicit content. Boudoir is about capturing intimate moments, celebrating sensuality, and empowering individuals in a way that feels comfortable and authentic to them.

3. Boudoir photography is only for romantic partners.

Reality: While boudoir photography can be a meaningful gift for a partner, it is not limited to romantic relationships. Many individuals choose to do boudoir sessions for themselves as a form of self-love, empowerment, and celebration of personal milestones.

4. You need to have modelling experience or be comfortable in front of the camera.

Reality: Professional boudoir photographers are experienced in working with individuals who may feel shy or nervous in front of the camera. They provide guidance, create a comfortable atmosphere, and help clients pose and express themselves naturally. Boudoir photography is for everyone, regardless of their prior modeling experience.

5. Boudoir photography is only for younger people.

Reality:Boudoir photography is not age-restricted. It can be enjoyed and appreciated by individuals of all ages. Every stage of life carries its own unique beauty and should be celebrated through boudoir photography.

How Do I Find The Right Photographer?

Great news, if you’re reading this blog, you most likely already have!!!

If you’re in greater Melbourne or any of the surrounding areas, my team and I would love to guide you through this empowering experience. If you’re interested in having your photographer travel to you, I do that too!

Once you’ve made a decision that you’re ready to take this amazing journey, it’s important to find the right photographer. Here are some key points to consider in your search:

• Does my photographer give me a sense of comfort and trust?

• Is their work good quality? Are their supporting “real” reviews?

• Do they have experience posing my body Shape, and size?

• Are they local to me?

• Are they available? or are they booked too far out?

• Does their brand match my values and how I want to be photographed?

At Le Chat Noir Boudoir, our first meeting is an introduction to establish a sense of comfort, trust, and understanding. To make sure you are as comfortable as possible before the day of the shoot, I do my best to cover all the bases of what you can expect. I introduce you to the spaces you’ll be shooting in, give you a glimpse of what your day will be like, and give you a chance to sit down with me and ask all your questions. Even the tough stuff!

How Much Does It Cost?

Boudoir sessions can range in price. I’ve seen some session retainers starting at $599 or even more! Our sessions begin at $395 and include hair, makeup, and the photoshoot.

Albums, prints, wall -art, and digitals are additional. You can check the pricelist of our best-seller collections on the investment page.

What do other women say about their Boudoir Sessions?

With my love for boudoir, I could go on for hours about why every woman should book a session. The best part is you don’t have to just take my word for it. Check out some of these amazing testimonials and live videos from clients who’ve had the experience!

Boudoir style photography was something I've always wanted to do and I finally acted upon that wish and booked in a session. It started with a phone call to Alessio who was just so friendly, guinuine and answered all my questions. Next came all the informative and helpful guides leading up to the big day. I felt prepared on the day and the photoshoot itself was so much fun! Alessio was professional but friendly and made me feel completely comfortable. I recently picked up my album and was blown away by the quality and the photographs themselves. I couldn't be happier with the result!

Meg Rao "A Photoshoot with Alessio is just an amazing experience!"

Alessio was a complete professional the entire time in the warmest, kindest and most respectful way possible. We had fun, we laughed a lot and I felt relaxed and happy as a result. I felt beautiful during the shoot and the photos were absolutely stunning. I love them and I am so proud of them. I could not recommend this experience more, it was so good and I can't wait to do it again!
