The Boudoir experience is intimate, raw, and empowering, so naturally one of the number one questions I get asked is about Privacy! At Haute View Boudoir, your PRIVACY is a TOP PRIORITY! I NEVER share any photos without your consistent. All the gorgeous girls on this website and social media have come from a model call and have given permission to share their images.
When choosing my online gallery system, I did extensive research on finding the most secure, highly encrypted gallery system. Everything online is password-protected and can only be shared with the people you choose to view your gallery.
Still prefer not to have anything online? No worries, we can do an in-person viewing party and have nothing stored online.

Usually, when a woman approaches the idea of doing a Boudoir Session, it's thought of as a gift for their partner. A wedding or anniversary gift, Valentine's Day, and birthday, etc. Which, don’t get me wrong, it IS the perfect gift, But the real gift here is for yourself. There is NOTHING wrong with a little self-love. If you do a Boudoir Session for anyone, let it be for you too.
A Boudoir session is FUN- you get to play dress up and be a super model for a day. You'll feel pampered as you get your hair and makeup done, while sipping champagne. Your favorite music will be playing. You'll really feel like a movie star.
BUT, the best part actually come AFTER your session. From when you see your images the first time, to receiving the finished album, and best fo all getting to relive the whole experience every time you look at your images. You'll see the true beauty in you that you often forget is there.
The boost in self-confidence you'll receive is worth years of therapy, and a lifetime of self-help books. If you don't believe me, here are some more words from just a few of the women I've had the honor to empower recently...
“I loved everything about this experience. It was my first boudoir photo shoot and I was super nervous as I had never done anything like that before. Brittany sat down before the shoot and we talked about the style I was going for. It was a 1st wedding anniversary gift to my husband. I am definitely pretty self-conscious, but she made me feel completely comfortable in my own skin. She made it totally fun! My husband was speechless after I gave him the beautiful book that Brittany put together. He has told me on numerous occasions that it his most beloved possession. Thank you for all your amazing work and for making me feel beautiful!!!” ~ Megan
Who doesn't need a little ego or confidence boost from time to time? This is a way to do it once, but have the results forever. One of my clients recently said-
“I Haven't felt this amazing, empowered And gorgeous in a long time!!! Thank you so much!!!” ~ Kaitlyn”

The last thing I want is this blog post to come across as preachy, because girl I STRUGGLE with this! If anything I am preaching to myself as I write this! Social Media plays a huge role in this as we are constantly scrolling and seeing *what looks like* everyone’s perfect life before us. Even when preparing yourself for this boudoir photography session, you will most likely go to Pinterest for inspiration. Which I encourage you to do, but the problem comes when you look at that inspiration and say, “I like this, but I will never look that (beautiful, skinny, perfect).”
If you don’t hear anything today, but this: Be Real, not Perfect! Celebrate those things that make you who you are, and don’t be afraid to be imperfectly, perfect.
So how do you break this cycle of comparing yourself with others? Here are some tips I’ve found useful at: https://zenhabits.net/lifes-enough-stop-comparing-yourself-to-others/
I get asked about tanning often and I actually learned about this lesson the hard way. I got a spray tan a few days before a friend’s wedding where I was a bridesmaid. I did all the right things: researched the best places, didn’t go cheap, and followed all the directions. It turned out really well and I thought it looked great….UNTIL I saw her wedding pictures, where I looked like a cheeto next to everyone else. In pictures spray tans come across orange and uneven. Unfortunately, I have had a few clients who also learned this lesson the hard way, so I wanted to do a quick blog post on the subject.
Spray Tans - Even if you spray tan regularly, do not get a spray tan in the days leading to your boudoir shoot. No matter how excellent the tanning solution is or how great it looks in person, it will not come off that way in your images. Spray tans (and other tanning products) are notorious for clinging to drier areas of your skin, like your knees, ankles, and wrists. It also tends to wear off on the hands, feet, and face before the rest of your body, creating a very uneven orangey looking skin tone contrast. All areas will be highly visible in your photographs, and are typically too contrasting to properly edit and smooth out.
Tanning Beds - Though tanning beds can give you a more natural look, there always tends to be a line or two from laying on the bed that tans inconsistently. Usually around the lower back and booty.
Like everything about boudoir, natural is better. Don’t be afraid to be your true self. A shade lighter won’t hide any of your true beauty!
