Bethany Fioret

“I also wanted to have portraits that reflect a period in time in which I feel I am at my best self. I am thrilled and thankful to now have these as a personal reminder of this time in my life.”

Sarah Kuper

I saw Ben’s work a while ago and thought to myself, “If I ever have boudoir photos taken – this is the artist who will take them.” Little did I know I would soon be diagnosed with breast cancer. I couldn’t book a consultation fast enough. The portrait experience was comfortable and special, and the photos – wow. Have Ben photograph you. You won’t regret it. You’ll treasure it. (And you’ll look AMAZING)

What To Wear For Boudoir

Boudoir Styling

Fabric Drape

You may imagine boudoir portraits mean lingerie or nudity (whether actual or implied). While lingerie and nude portraits are both very popular options for boudoir portraits, they’re not the only options for your portrait session. You can also incorporate fabric drapery into your session. Portraits featuring draped fabric are one of the most popular styling options in my studio.

Boudoir Styling


When you picture boudoir portraits, you may imagine photos of someone wearing lingerie. Intimate portraits in lingerie are one of the most iconic styles of boudoir photography and for good reason. Simply put, being photographed in intimate apparel can be a bold way to document and celebrate your body. It’s also a classic choice for images you want to share with your partner.

Boudoir Styling


It might surprise you to learn there are many ways to style boudoir portraits. Lingerie boudoir portraits and boudoir nude portraits are both very popular options for boudoir portraits.

But those aren’t the only ways to style a boudoir photo session. Another very popular style of boudoir portrait is the bodyscape or bodyscaping.

Nude Boudoir

The human form has inspired artists for millennia and continues to do so. So it makes sense that many people want to have images of themselves that show their unclothed figure. Boudoir nude images can be intimate and sensual, yes, but they are also a powerful way of celebrating the body you live in.

Robes & Dressing Gowns

A robe, peignoir, or dressing gown may be one of the most underrated and underappreciated garments, in real life and portraits. These simple, loosely fitted pieces have a long and versatile history. They’ve served as a cover-up while dressing, a garment for lounging, and even a casual ‘at-home’ informal dress.

Boudoir Styling Tips

One of the things that stresses people out the most when they schedule a boudoir portrait session is “what am I going to wear?
This may seem a little daunting because, obviously, you want to feel amazing and get absolutely beautiful portraits.
