For a conservative country like ours , bridal boudoir used to be something a bride-to-be won't even consider doing . But until recently , this genre is becoming increasingly popular . A lot of open minded Filipinas are having interest in doing an intimate photo session for a number of reason . Usually as a gift in a form of photo books to their future husbands and some to preserve for posterity the vitality of their youth. Whatever the reason is , it is an art form and should not be confused with pornography .
Boudoir is a french word for a lady's private sitting room or dressing room. In terms of photography , it is an intimate photo session with a bride in lingerie . The idea here is that the bride is in preparation of wearing her wedding dress . Therefore it should not be considered lewd or indecent .
Karen is not really a bride-to-be . She is a model who agreed to do this themed shoot with us . But I think everyone can do boudoir . You don't need a perfect body to pose and show off. It's not about emulating a lingerie catalogue but rather loving your own body and being proud of it :)
