Friend, I get it. We're all working on a budget. We have limited financial resources and most of us can't just drop a few thousand dollars on a random photoshoot for no reason out of the blue!

But boudoir photography isn't just any random photoshoot.

Boudoir photography is an investment. If you're going to invest money into a luxury service like boudoir photography, you probably want to know "why is boudoir photography so expensive?

In this blog post, we'll delve into the factors that contribute to the cost of boudoir photography and why it's worth every penny for the ladies who choose to invest in this empowering experience.


Boudoir sessions are not like other more traditional portrait sessions. There is a lot more that goes into a luxury boudoir photography service. You'll get an optional consultation before your session. You'll get information on what to wear and what photographs best. Some boudoir photographers offer client closets of lingerie pieces for you to wear. You'll also get information on how to prepare for your session.

You'll have the chance to fill out a questionnaire that helps your photographer know what you want to highlight and minimize, and other information needed to tailor your session to YOU!

Your boudoir photographer is available to answer questions and offer advice leading up to the session.

The day of your session, you'll be pampered by a professional hair and makeup artist. Then you'll be guided through posing from your fingers to your toes! Your boudoir photographer will guide you through every step!

Your images will be retouched with more attention to detail than a standard portrait session and your photographer can design a cohesive and beautiful boudoir album for you to take home at the end of your experience.


When you're hiring a good boudoir photographer, you are investing in a highly specialized professional with experience, honed talent, and extensive knowledge.

Boudoir photography is very different from normal portrait photography. It requires a very different set of posing and lighting skills from your photographer.

Many good portrait photographers are intimidated and out of their comfort zone if you ask them to dabble in the world of boudoir photography. Your images and your experience will be much better with a photographer who specializes in boudoir photography.

Boudoir photography is like most other things in life, you get what you pay for. If you want to have an incredible luxury boudoir photography experience with stunning retouched photos, you can expect a luxury price tag.

If you want to think about it from your photographer's perspective, you'll see that no boudoir photographer can afford to charge $200 per session for a service that involves so much time, personalization, and attention to detail. If they did, they would have to book 200+ sessions a year just to make $40k (before factoring in business expenses). And if they were to shoot 200 boudoir sessions in one year at that rate, there is no way they would have the time or creative capacity to give you a luxury experience without getting burned out.


As we've already established, boudoir photography is different from other genres of photography. It is an intimate form of photography, yes. But the real power of boudoir photography is it's ability to transform your perception of yourself for the better.

You'll leave a good boudoir experience with a newfound sense of confidence and appreciation for your beauty.

Boudoir photography is an emotional experience for many of the ladies I work with and I've had happy tears during reveal sessions. Some women have never felt beautiful in their lives before coming to their boudoir experience.

Boudoir photography is fighting back against the negative voices in your head. Boudoir photography is about literally showing you that you don't have to change a thing about yourself to be beautiful.

So you tell me, how much is feeling at home and beautiful in your own skin worth to you? Some would say that feeling is priceless.


If you're considering a boudoir photography experience, remember that you're not just paying for photos; your paying for a luxury experience and you're investing in yourself and the opportunity to embrace your beauty and femininity in a whole new light.
