Boudoir at Any Age | Ms. Y
I get asked all the time from potential clients if they’re “too old” to do a shoot. I have to laugh a little and say “Of course not! No such thing!” every time. I do understand where that concern comes from though. We’re bombarded by photos of women in their early twenties all day from Victoria’s Secret ads to TV commercials. And it doesn’t help that most boudoir photographers feature only younger women. But my clients tend to range in age moreso from early 30’s to late 50’s.
We’re going to get a little intimate here, but I’ve found, after photographing hundreds of women, that we generally tend to peak sexually later in life. I think it has something to do with raising children, going through so many life experiences, and finally being comfortable in your own skin after years of struggling with self doubt. Women with older children, usually that have left the house, are finally ready to celebrate their bodies and beauty. I just love seeing this newfound sexual confidence in so many women.
Ms. Y was nowhere near my oldest client, but still represents my favorite age group to photograph. She contacted me originally because she saw that her friend, who was also in her 50’s, had done a shoot, and she looked stunning! (Thanks Ms. V!) After getting down and gritty, working non-stop through the summer on re-furbishing houses, Ms. Y told me she was ready to feel like herself again: beautiful, feminine, sensual.
When Ms. Y sat down in the makeup chair, our makeup artist LaDonna Stein knew just what to do, giving her the most perfect sultry smoky eyes and berry lip. The woman who walked into the studio in jeans and joked about her farmers’ tan went straight to total babe status in about an hour. I pulled several favorites from the lingerie wardrobe for her to try, and she loved every single one. We had so much fun, and shot a little bit of everything. Ms. Y seamlessly went from set to set, outfit to outfit, nailing each and every pose I threw at her. She especially gave the best sultry expressions. I knew she had these tucked away in her flirting arsenal!
“Thank you for making me feel so feminine!” Ms. Y squealed after viewing her finished boudoir photos for the first time. I had to reach right over to give her a huge hug. This is exactly the response we were hoping for!
Thank you so much for letting me share, Ms. Y! You’re drop dead gorgeous!
