Edmonton Boudoir Photography

Sometimes people ask us, “What makes EMPOWERMENT boudoir different from other kinds of boudoir?” And while we are ALWAYS happy to answer your DMs, emails, and phone consult calls, we thought it would be good to answer those questions RIGHT HERE on the blog.

So, if you’ve ever wondered what empowerment boudoir is and if it’s for you, KEEP READING!

What is empowerment boudoir? If you've considered a boudoir shoot but aren't sure if it's for you, maybe it's because what you're REALLY looking for is an EMPOWERING experience!

YOU are the focus of empowerment boudoir

Some boudoir shoots focus on making you look sexy for someone else. The focus is on mimicking a certain look – often a pin-up look that is meant to remind people of a Playboy model.

Empowerment boudoir is about finding YOUR sexiest look – even if it’s a little different than what you see in the mainstream. And if that mainstream look IS what you’re after, an empowerment session will make that happen. After all, it’s about you. So if you WANT a particular look, an empowerment-focused boudoir photographer will happily help you create that look.

Empowerment boudoir is more about BEAUTY than sex appeal

Sometimes our clients don’t even get in the nude or wear anything revealing. Our GCP dresses are a HUGE hit and although they are DROP DEAD GORGEOUS most of them aren’t really revealing at all.

(Want to learn more about our GCP dress? Book a quick consult call and we’ll tell you more!
OR, just head over to our Instagram account where you are bound to see it over and over again.)

The goal of our photoshoots is to highlight YOUR BEAUTY however you are comfortable. Often, the focus is on sexual beauty, but sometimes it’s about maternal beauty or strength. The focus of YOUR SESSION is whatever form of beauty YOU like.

You want to do a boudoir shoot but aren't sure if it's right for you. Maybe it seems TOO sexual or you just don't feel comfortable in your body. EMPOWERMENT boudoir might be just what you need.

Your Journey, Your Outcome

EMPOWERMENT photography is for all the times you’ve looked in the mirror and didn’t like the woman looking back at you.

It’s for the times when you need reminding that you are a SURVIVOR and that you are PERFECT just the way you are. That you get to decide the outcome of your journey and not the other way around.

Some Sage Words of Advice

Our owner and lead photographer in Edmonton, Yahozka, has the following advice to give to all the women who enter her studio. 

“First, it’s about learning to LOVE yourself just as you are. To help you on your journey to self-love and discovery.

Second, it’s about building up your confidence and silencing the hate speech that enters your mind.

Lastly, it’s about stepping out of your comfort zone. Whether it’s being in lingerie, in cute pajamas, or a gorgeous ball gown.”
