What is boudoir? Boudoir, is pronounced “boo-dwahr” or if you are feeling fancy “boo-dwa”. While the term boudoir is French for bedroom, now a days it describes a variety of things including furniture, clothing and a genre of photography. As a boudoir photographer my style tends to be feminine, flirty and artistic. I will always create a fun and laid back environment and provide you with classy images that reveal your feminine side. Each session is catered to your personality. The tone can range from sweetly delicate to fiercely sexy, depending on what you are looking for.
Why boudoir? A boudoir photography session is not always, but can be a once in a lifetime experience. It’s something you should plan for well in advance, just as you would for any special occasion. Often times the photographs will be used a gift for a significant other. Brides looking for a unique gift to surprise the groom with might choose a photo album or canvas print. Traditionally the first wedding anniversary gift is supposed to be paper. Celebrate your first year of being man and wife with a custom Collection Box filled with individually matted prints of your favorite images.
It’s not always about a spouse or significant other! A boudoir photography session is also a great way to celebrate a milestone. Like a 30th, 40th or even 60th birthday! Maybe you are about to start a new chapter of your life – mommyhood, and you want to document your pre-baby body. Or maybe you’ve already had your babies, you’ve finally lost the baby weight and you want to remind yourself that you’ve still got that sassy side in you!
Between work, carpools and remembering to get the oil changed – life gets pretty hectic! I truly feel that every woman deserves to take a break from the hustle of life, be a little selfish, indulge and do something totally outside of your comfort zone! This is why boudoir photography is a passion of mine. Contact me today and let’s get your session scheduled!
“I asked Sontera to do my boudoir photos as a wedding gift for my husband. I rented a hotel room in downtown Houston and met Sontera for the afternoon. It was a blast. I was nervous at first to be posing in almost nothing, but she made me feel very comfortable and the photos were hot!! She airbrushed in all the right places! I was able to make the best of the hotel room by telling my husband it was an early wedding gift, I wanted to spend a night out on the town to de-stress from all of the wedding plans. He had no idea I really used it for the photo shoot early that day! I purchased a large canvas from Sontera with my favorite photo, and my husband was totally surprised the night of our wedding. It was by far the best gift I have ever given to him! Sontera is amazing, and I could not be more pleased!!!” – Erica
