Sending Love in more intimate ways.
A Box Of Chocolates
When we think of Valentine's Day or 'Gifts of Love', we typically think of flowers and chocolates. But what if your love is not 'typical' but rather this person is someone much more 'special'? How do we express our love in something more personal and intimate with the one we hold most sacred to our hearts?
Boudoir photos that express love & sensuality.
I wanted to Surprise 'Him'
but somehow I surprised myself too..
Attraction First, Then Love... now what's to follow?
When he first met you, there was something beautifully attractive he saw in you. Your hair, your face, your body, your expression, your laugh; it's everything that drew him to want to be with you. We fall in love with great joy then get comfortable in our relationship. Feels like the story's written, right? But keeping our love alive with the same spark takes work. Do we celebrate our love with another box of chocolates or another bouquet of flowers?
Love should always be renewed and celebrated with fresh sparks of beguiling reminders of that very special spark that brought us together and keeps us drawn to one another. Newly engaged women seem to have the fever to want to playfully tease their hubby's to-be with sexy boudoir photos (and the grooms go nuts for it!). I've also had spouses and significant others give their love the experience of having their own boudoir photo shoot, which turns into a gift they both revel in.
At Valentine's Day I'm reminded of the creative and special ways that each partner keeps the flame lit for each other. Ironically the boudoir photo shoots I have done all seem to be gifts one gives to the other partner. But as much as it is a gift for another, the woman being photographed seems to walk away with a gift for herself as well. My boudoir photo shoots seem to loosen the spirits and brings out a certain confidence as she sees how amazing she can look in sexy photos. It brings a smile to BOTH his face...and hers. Now that warms my heart :)
The boudoir photos I capture of women are classy so you can feel extremely proud. This isn't a tawdry photo session. We capture photos as sexy or as lightly sensual as you're comfortable with. Share your most beautiful and sensual side of yourself with him in alluring photographs.
Note: In this site, we will only feature 'lightly' sexy photos out of respect for our audience.

If I had a nickel for every woman who said,
" I'm Excited for this photo shoot, but also SO NERVOUS!"
There's a certain nervous excitement that every woman experiences as they walk in my studio doors for their boudoir photo session. But it's also always followed by a feeling of pure exhilaration as we begin clicking through our photo session together.
I've photographed women of all ages and all body types and it takes a bit of courage for all. But I've noticed that each woman also experiences the same enlightening moment of great pride and elevated sense of confidence after. As their final photos are revealed to them, there's always this overwhelming feeling of JOY and Disbelief that overcome them. It's pure happiness for me to watch them fall in love with themselves ass they see their photos.
It's an interesting experience to watch all these women who were so nervous when they arrived, but felt completely exhilarated and proud of themselves after.
Is Boudoir Just For The Tall & Skinny?
What I've learned in my years of photography is that the most beautiful photographs don't come from a particular body shape or a perfectly symmetrical face.
Let's face it, none of us are perfect...BUT we all have ideal angles that make us look emphatically more gorgeous. Understanding a person's body shape and proportions combined with knowing which angles are most flattering for each body type is the key to looking great in photos. Add a bit of knowledge of flattering lighting set-ups, how to use wardrobe and posing techniques (to mask or accentuate certain areas)... Well, it's a little bit of a recipe. But pure perfection when you get it right!
Here's some tips for different body types and how I work the magic.
1) PLUS SIZED WOMEN who want to deemphasize body areas.
Camera ANGLES & LIGHTING are key. Depending on where you are photographed from, you can look wider or thinner. Lighting also plays a key role. Depending on where you position the light, you can create shadows in areas you want to deemphasize and highlight the areas you want to pop in an image.
2) SHORTER PERSON who wants to look taller and more slender
Camera LENS choice is key here. The 70-200mm lens will give you a compression with perspective distortion to produce this visual effect better. The camera is much about understanding illusions sometimes.
3) SLENDER BUT BOXY FIGURE
It's all about POSING, specifically poses that create a strong 'S' curves in the body. I have loads of tricks in my bag but it would take pages to share! (I'll be posting a video on posing tricks in the near future, so check back with us or subscribe to keep informed of future posing posts).
4) PEAR SHAPED BODIES who want to look more proportionate
The key here is POSING and camera ANGLES. Understanding that "what's closest to the camera is largest", I'm going to pose my subject accordingly. For instance, while standing I'll have my subject lean forward towards me. Then shoot from a slight higher angle so the bum is farthest away from the lens and the face is closest (the lower body will begin to fade away smaller in this set up). I'm going to focus on poses that are lying down, standing or leaning while avoiding sitting at a 90 degree angle which will spread the bum out wider. (I'll be posting a video on posing tricks in the near future, so check back with us or subscribe to keep informed of future posing posts).
"Hi, I'm Monica Hahn and I'd love to show you how you can look gorgeous on camera"
