You don’t need the physical beauty of a model to get a photo portraying beauty. Everybody has beauty inside of them. Your beauty is brought out from what I do, thus creating a pleasant and relaxed atmosphere where your personal vibrant character comes out, thus portraying your true beauty.
In this service what I do, is allow you be in front of my camera, and while doing that, to give you confidence in yourself & your beauty
and I will make you look better than you think you can be in photos, through positive emotions and comfort
A Boudoir Session
As with other services, if I can meet you a day or two before the shoot to discuss the shoot, it would be better so we both will be prepared and you will have time to prepare what we discuss. A meeting to discuss a boudoir session usually takes about 10-20 minutes and can be done at my place or at a coffee shop.
I will also have the chance to get to know your character and likes beforehand which helps a lot too. We will also discuss what to wear or to bring with you for the photo shoot.
My boudoir photography style is more of an artistic perspective. As such, while in such a case it is generally of an artistic nude style, no private body parts are shown in full-view or explicit in the photo. (Of course, at the end of the day the photos would be for you, so if you’d like to have photos where your full nudity is shown, it will also be done.
Taking boudoir has nothing to do with having pics taken while you are naked although that is possible, and I would still know how to keep you comfortable in such a situation.
Boudoir photography exists to capture the beauty of a woman that agrees with her idea of what is beautiful and what is sensual. Aldo’s ideas of what is sensual, most likely, has nearly little to do with yours, so his first job is to understand you so during the shoot to bring out what you like about yourself.
AdoPics brings out your true character, energy and true beauty in the photos taken for you or to give as a present to someone else (like in Bridal Boudoir).
A boudoir session takes between one to two hours. The shoot takes longer than other types of shoots due to the alteration of lighting and possible clothing changes.
Commonly, boudoir shoots are generally done indoors in my photo studio, but can also be done at your place of your convenience, like in your home or in a hotel room. The purpose of such a photo shoot is to capture your femininity and your true beauty.
AldoPics always brings out your natural and real true beauty in photos taken of you.
While good technique can help a lot (like the nature & direction of lighting has a lot of effect on how much face wrinkles and shadows come out which can make you look older or younger), technique is not everything. While there are many great photographers out there, and many have excellent technique, technique isn’t everything.
What if You’re not comfortable in front of the camera?
AldoPics rarely use posing as Aldo doesn’t like photos where you probably will be and look stiff. Many times, posing can make you unhappy or uncomfortable. during the shoot. Through my communication, Aldo directs and guides you and helps you to keep your energy uplifted in a relaxed, fun environment where the best in you is brought out.
Aldo will always aim to make you feel comfortable, happy in front of the camera and help you to forget about it.
Should I be naked?
Boudoir photos don’t necessarily need to be taken while you are in the nude. Generally, nudity is implied rather than explicit or direct.
Boudoir photos can also be taken while you still have your clothes on and your private parts well covered. However, Aldo’s Boudoir knowledge also covers what to do when you are naked. But being naked isn’t a must for boudoir photography.
Also, you don’t need to wear anything that is super sexy or sensual. The idea of the shoot is to capture while you are feeling comfortable and enjoying yourself. And what is ‘sexy’ or ‘sensual’ won’t come from Aldo, but from you, as the photos are for you.
It is just a misconception that when seeing a boudoir photo, it only means that one likes to see nude women in sexy poses.
Before the shoot
Ideally, the night before or some hours before the shoot you don’t get drunk or go heavy on the alcohol, this doesn’t help a you stay relaxed.
What does AldoPics do?
Through the photos delivered in this service, Aldo will give you the confidence in yourself that you deserve. Also, when viewing the photos, the reason you are doing something won’t be immediately obvious and the photo will create intrigue towards you.
Aldo’s task during such a session is mainly to make you feel and look good and be comfortable with yourself and body. Of course, his knowledge of lighting and retouching also help.
For example, Aldo can suggest certain movements and adapt the lighting in a certain way so if you would like to look slimmer in the photos.
Aldo knows and feels that there is plenty of sensuality and beauty in every woman in this world! Many boudoir ideas, like positions to make the desired body part look better or to make you more comfortable with the camera or yourself, are also applied to some extent when Beauty Shots
Don’t worry if you don’t know how to pose or aren’t comfortable in front of a camera. The main thing Aldo
does is to make you enjoy yourself, have fun, be comfortable and get in-touch with yourself through his interaction & communication. Enjoying yourself creates photos where you can look better than a model!
Lighting & Retouching
While in general, Aldo
only minimally retouches the photos to get the lighting perfect, Aldo
likes to leave a photo as close to reality as possible. However, for this service retouching and body alterations is generally asked for. Aldo
adapts the lighting and suggest movements so as to bring out what you would like to portray. Not everything needs to be done via retouching and Aldo prefers to have photos looking natural rather than edited. Of course sometimes only with retouching what the client would like can be done. For example, Aldo was once asked by a woman to make it look like she had bigger breasts in the photo. (Aldo
doesn’t do and is not interested in plastic surgery 🙂 ).
Aldo will always evoke happy emotion from you, thus converting any vulnerability you might have into strength.
