I am excited about this avenue of my business. You are currently reading the very first official post to my new boudoir blog! I’m soooo excited about it and look forward to sharing lots of beauty & boudoir goodness with you all. I’m a bit nervous about having a blog and keeping up with it, I promise to try and keep it updated as frequently as possible.
Let’s first take a look at the term boudoir and how it became a fascinating art form over 100 years ago!
The origins of boudoir
A ‘boudoir’ is a lady’s private bedroom, sitting room or dressing room. The term boudoir comes from the French verb bouder meaning to pout. Historically boudoir formed a lady’s suite of rooms adjacent to her bedchamber, where she could bathe and dress. Over time boudoir became any private room such as the drawing room. These would be used for activities including entertaining intimate acquaintances. Boudoir has come to denote styles that focus on Renaissance and French bedroom styles. It also describes the “country cottage” with whitewashed walls, heavy bed furniture and deep bedding.
Boudoir becomes an art form
Boudoir as an art form became a prominent movement starting around 1900. It remained in vogue for around 40 years. It evolved from fashion and magazine illustration in Paris around 1910. Today boudoir sees a resurgence through photography – often as a personal gift. Maybe you thought of this as a personal gift to the special person in your life. Or even the as the perfect gift to yourself. But boudoirs’ resurgence goes even further…
Did you know boudoir photography is fast becoming a highly sought-after wedding gift for the bride-to-be to give her groom? It’s the perfect Wedding Night Gift.

The desire to capture and preserve your beauty is only natural. Something to be proud of. And look back on in the future.
