Taking the decision to be involved in a boudoir photo-shoot might be one of the most nerve-racking decisions a person can make, but it can also be one of the most fun, rewarding and confidence building experiences you can be involved in.
Paul David Smith is a professional boudoir photographer in Peterborough, he is an easy going, relaxed individual who has over the years photographed hundreds of people from all walks of life in boudoir photoshoots. He understands the personal nature of such a photo-shoot and strives to deliver professional images that both himself and his clients will be proud of.
Paul will listen to your ideas and together you will build a style for your photo-shoot, developing a full understanding of what will happen on the day well before the shoot actually occurs. Every shoot is different and there is no one size fits all template to work from with boudoir photography, so the shoot will be completely tailored to your own requirements.
We’ll often ask you to create a Pinterest board with images that you like before the shoot takes place. this allows us to see what type of images you like best and use them as inspiration for your own shoot.
We shoot all our boudoir sessions in our house in Stilton, Peterborough. This offers you complete privacy during the shoot and the only person present from our side will be Paul. You are very welcome to bring somebody with you should you wish too.
We run shoots from our home frequently and this means we know the shots that are going to work immediately and there is no trial and error in setting up in an unfamiliar surroundings. From your perspective, you’re going to get great shots because we’ve often tested the setups out already and know they work.
Paul works frequently with some of the top professional hair stylists and make-up artists in Peterborough who are available to assist with the shoot should you wish them too. There is an additional fee of £75.00 for this service which is set by the stylist and not ourselves. You are very welcome to organise your own hair and makeup or do it yourself.
Paul can advise what lingerie will work well for the camera and if you have no clue how to pose that’s not an issue either, guidance will be given as and where it’s needed.
We know you want to look your best and that is why we professionally edit each and every image to a high standard. We won’t change anything major and we won’t do it without your consent. No huge body shape changes, no changing of hair colours or anything crazy, we’re just polishing the fine details of the image to make them the best they can be.
You will usually receive between 25-40 high resolution, professionally edited images available via digital download within 72 hours of the shoot.
The aim of a boudoir photo-shoot really is to make you feel like a million dollars, to give you new confidence with yourself and to create some amazing photographs together that you will be able to keep and look back on for a lifetime.
