What is boudoir and why should you try it?

The word boudoir comes from the French word for a woman’s bedroom or private dressing room. It was a place for her to be alone or to be with someone intimately. In the 1920’s, photographers would recreate this type of environment and photograph the beauty and sexuality of their female models. 

In modern day, these photographic experiences can be incredibly empowering, reconnecting us to our most intimate selves, as well as with our partners, in the case of couples’ boudoir. They also serve as a cherished reminder of each person’s unique beauty and confidence, unveiling a new type of comfort within one’s own skin.

At Allebach Photography, we specialize in creating a safe space to embrace your true and best self. During your experience, we encourage you to peel away your own self judgements and critiques and honor the depths of your uniqueness. From the very first time we talk, right up to the moment you get to see your artwork in person, what we care about  is you and your own story.  

Our goal with each and every person who walks through our doors, is to make them feel like a rockstar! We pamper with hair and makeup. We energize with coffee, espresso, and tea. We nourish with some snacks during your break. And we have a knack for creating breathtaking artwork for your home! We all have a space in our home to retreat to in an attempt to decompress from a hard day. Imagine that space being decorated with artwork that reminds you of your power, your strength, and the love you have to give. That’s what we live for. Creating something that anchors you to those blissful spaces in your heart. 

So let’s break down the Allebach Photography experience. 

We start with a phone call. This is where we get to hear all about what this will mean to you and what you want your photographs to say each and every time you look at them. 

Once we get your experience booked, we will also notify one of our incredible talented hair and makeup artists. We value the wonderful artistry they practice, from light and natural to heavy and punk rock! It’s important to us that you represent the inner badass that you want to channel in these photographs; and that’s why hiring a professional artist is incredibly important to these experience. 

The day of, you get to kick back and get pampered for the first hour. Bring wine or beer or champagne if you’d like. Sometimes that liquid courage can shake out those pre-session jitters you may experience. That’s ok and totally normal! 

During your session, you are free to get as dressed or as undressed as you’d like. We encourage you to step outside of your comfort zone but it is not something you are required to do. This, after all, is about you. That said, we do have a bell you get to ring if you do get fully naked! It’s hung on a wall with handwritten sentiments about others’ experiences and what they got out of it. 

Once your session is complete, we bring out the snacks so you can take a break and unwind, while we create a beautiful presentation of your photographs. In our cinematic reveal room, you get to see a slideshow of everything you did and everything you achieved. You will get to relive those feelings and emotions and empowerment! And together, with your photographer, you will get to design the artwork you will cherish in your home, and in those sacred spaces, forever!

This experience is designed specifically to cater to you and what you want to get out of it. It’s not about us. You deserve to feel empowered. Your strength deserves to be honored. Your story deserves to be told.
