Everybody and every body is different. But everyone deserves to feel sexy, glamorous and special. Let’s face it — we have a love-hate relationship with lingerie. Once you find the piece of lingerie or bra that makes you feel invincible, life is good, if not great, but the whole shopping and trying pieces on parts are, well, less than favorable. And, let’s be honest. Not everyone can look perfect in each piece of lingerie put in front of them.

Hell NO! Boudoir photography is for EVERY BODY. All shapes and sizes and walks of life. The whole point of boudoir photography is getting a private glimpse into the real you.
Unfortunately, many women get stuck on what society has deemed to be their flaws: stretch marks, scars, and rolls. The truth is, those things are part of your beauty! The body you have right now is perfect for a boudoir shoot. Sure, I'll use my expertise to guide you on what to wear, work the angles, lighting & posing to help a sister out, but girl, you're beautiful just the way you are! I’ll do some post-shoot editing if that makes you feel more comfortable, but remember, a boudoir shoot is about the body you have, not just the body you dream of. Your body is beautiful and amazing.
Client privacy is the topmost priority for any professional boudoir photographer with a good reputation. Should the photographer get some exceptionally gorgeous shots from your session, they may want to display it in their portfolio, in their studio, at trade shows, on Instagram, etc., in which case they will need your permission--which you don't have to give unless you want to! Remember, a reputable photographer has a vested interest in guarding your privacy, since word-of-mouth is everything to them. I can assure you, with Nova Photography, your boudoir photos aren’t going anywhere that you don’t want them to! If you want to protect your privacy, you might not want to send digital images to anyone that you don’t trust absolutely—but you can rest assured that as your photographer I'm not going to put out images that you don’t want to share.
"Boudoir" photography means something different to everyone.
For Nova Photography, It's all about capturing your unique beauty, in a sensual way. You could be wearing lingerie, an oversized sweater, a ball gown, shorts & a t-shirt, semi-nude - whatever makes you feel confident & sexy. You set the tone!
