Frequently Asked Questions about Boudoir.

Updated: May 29

Boudoir.

It's exciting

It's inciting

And it's confusing and intimating all at the same time!


If you are thinking about a boudoir I'm sure you have some pretty big questions on the top of your head. That's fine. I mean it's not everyday you are standing half naked in front of a perfect stranger.


So you have questions... I've got answers.



Q: Boudoir. Pornography. What’s the difference?

A: Well for starters Boudoir is suggestive, while porn is... well you know. And you don’t have to be complete nude or revel anything at all when it comes to boudoir photographs. One of the most important things about being sexy is being confident. If you feel that way wearing jeans, by all means, wear jeans! Or a button down men’s dress shirt. Sure why not? Classy, suggestive, and flirty.


Q: Can you Photoshop my images?

A: If you would like to have say, stretch marks, a scar, that unwanted, embarrassing tattoo from when you were 16 removed. Sure that is do-able. If you want an image turned black and white or made sepia. Sure again there is no problem with that either. However please keep in mind that photography is an art form. Please do not ask for the background colors to be changed and add a boarder of stars around the picture and through in this quote about stars and moons. For those types of things, use your Iphone with your own images.


Q: What type of woman have boudoir photography sessions?

A: All women! All shapes, sizes, ages, coloured skin, body types. All women.


Q: Are my photos going to end up on the internet?

A: I understand that these images are more intimate then your standard garden variety portrait so, Not if you don’t want them too. Icing Sugar Photography only uses your photos for advertising and online portfolio purposes with your say. It is completely okay if you wish to keep your images private.


Q: Do I have to be naked?

A) No. Not at all. I'm gonna let you in on a little secret.... what is really sexy is confidence. And confidence comes from being comfortable with who you are! If you want to wear a button down mens dress shirt and panties, go for it! You want to rock jeans and a bra, wear it. Matching bra and panty set? Why not? Corset? No problem. Topless? Of course. You do you boo!
