Trying to pick the right gift for your partner for Valentine’s Day may often leave you stumped. I’m the kind of person that buys myself what I want, and I can be impossible to shop for! One of the reasons why I love boudoir photos as a gift is because it is something SO personal. You can’t buy this in a store. The act of creating these images requires care and consideration. It is so incredibly thoughtful. And I find that the overall gain from both parties is increased confidence. They get beautiful images of you and the benefit of a more confident, empowered version of you!
Instead of getting your partner flowers or chocolate, why not give them something they will be able to relive and experience forever?
A couples boudoir session gives you and your partner a chance to spend time together while capturing your love and passion. You’ll leave the studio with more than just stunning photographs. The moments we create and the connection you feel are just one of the many reasons why boudoir photography is so transformational.
We’ve rounded up a list of reasons why so many women find our couples’ sessions beneficial. If you’re ready for a life-changing experience, fill out our contact form or call us at 757-909-5748.
Why You Should Do a Couples Boudoir Session?
There are many reasons why couples sign up for a boudoir session together.
When L came to my studio, she was struggling to see herself as sexy after weight gain and worried about coming across as awkward in her shoot. We spent some time unwinding during hair and makeup. We talked about their relationship and how it has evolved over the years. They have known each other since high school and have both changed so much!
After getting to know her and her partner, they were able to relax, open up, and have a great time!
L came out of the experience feeling like it was “10000% worth the price” and that she had “THE BEST TIME.” Because we are dedicated to providing a lasting experience, many of our couples say they wouldn’t change a thing.
Whether you are celebrating a special occasion, a life transition, or just having a date, you will leave the studio a different person than before, just like L & D!
Why did you decide that you wanted to do a boudoir session?
“I did my first boudoir session when I was at my heaviest weight in an effort to reconnect with myself, and find my ability to create a sexy state of mind despite the way my body looked. After that I was hooked. I had been working with LeZandra and got to see how beneficial couple sessions could be so I decided that we had to do one.”
Creates Intimacy and Connection
Boudoir is a fun, sensual, and empowering experience. You and your partner get to spend the afternoon stripping down for each other — sharing closeness and intimacy so many neglect to make time for in their day-to-day lives. In your session, you’ll spend hours posing, flirting, and talking about your relationship, leaving you feeling closer to your partner by the end of the day.
What made you decide to hire me as your photographer?
Not only do I love your aesthetic, but you provide so much more than just amazing photographs to your clients. For a couples’ session especially you. Focus on creating genuine connection and a safe space.
2. Gives You a Chance to Explore
Relationship coaching is a HUGE part of my process. Many couples have aspects of their sexuality that they’ve never explored. My goal is for couples to break through those barriers in a safe and comfortable space. Whether it’s roleplay or BDSM, I love helping couples feel comfortable exploring new techniques for the bedroom during their session.
How were you feeling before your shoot? Any thoughts going through your head?
I was absolutely anxious. Public intimacy is not something that I am super comfortable with but I have had the unique opportunity to see LeZandra at work with multiple couples, and definitely trusted her to create some bad ass images with us.
3. Allows You to Reconnect With Your Partner
It’s important to make time for your relationship and not let romance and intimacy fall by the wayside. As a sex coach in training, I will focus on what fuels the fire in your relationship during your session. You’ll get to explore your attraction in a new and exciting setting while reminding each other of your best assets. Plus, the photographs — and memories — will be yours to revisit for years to come.
Now that you’ve had your own photo shoot, how was it?
It was amazing just like I knew it would be! We talked about our likes and dislikes as a couple and individually which helped guide LeZandra into creating custom images with purpose, build connection between my husband and I. I highly recommend to any couples, regardless of how connected you both feel at the time. it was like two hours of foreplay and who doesn’t love that?!
4. Feels Sexy AND Empowering
Not everyone is born loving the way they look. I get that. Loving your body is HARD when you are bombarded with messaging that says you are not good enough.
My job as your photographer is to help you focus on what you LOVE about your body. I do that by hiring a team of professional hair and makeup artists dedicated to creating a look that you love. Once you are ready, I will guide you and your partner through the best poses and angles that accentuate your assets. My approach has helped countless clients feel empowered and confident.
How have you changed as a person since your boudoir session?
It’s easier for me to look at myself as a sexual human being. It’s really easy during sex to get in your head, especially as a woman. Looking at the images from our couples, shoot reminds me that we are hot as fuck, and the only thing I need to do is just enjoy myself while tending to both my needs, and my partners needs.
5. Provides Incredible Memories
Looking to celebrate a special occasion with a dinner and movie? Chances are you won’t remember the night 10 or even five years from now.
Why not celebrate with something unique and unforgettable? When you book a couples boudoir session, you get to spend the day at our stunning downtown Norfolk studio reconnecting with your partner. We’ll put in the time to get to know YOU — and make sure you and your partner feel relaxed throughout the shoot.
What would you say to someone considering doing a boudoir shoot?
JUST DO IT! If the price is an issue, just think about how much money you’ve spent on other things to make you feel good. I guarantee that all of those things add up to a much bigger investment than a Boudoir photo shoot. It’s an experience unlike anything else and it’s incredibly empowering. It allows you to see yourself from an outside perspective the way that other people see you, and that shit is super powerful.
6. Customized Sessions for Each Couple
We love adding little touches to your session to make the experience feel uniquely you. As part of my process, I get to know you, your partner, and the strengths you each bring to the relationship. As a result, you get stunning, personalized photos where you look and feel hot as fuck.
Is there anything I could do that would make this experience completely perfect?
Girl, you know what you’re doing! I know you’re always looking for more ways to step up your game, and if I had any feedback to give, I definitely would but I truly love your process.
