Boudoir is the French word for a woman’s bedroom so it makes sense that a boudoir photo shoot is typically thought of as a sexy photoshoot. Clients typically wear revealing outfits – lingerie, stockings, undergarments, dresses, jewelry, wigs, etc. It doesn’t always have to be like that though!

Personally, when I think of a boudoir shoot, I think of it as more of a self-confidence booster. While some women believe wearing sexy clothing helps them build confidence, it’s honestly more about what makes you feel good. Many women choose to wear items of clothing that they wear every day – a tank or tee, a fitted blazer, a lace or silk robe, jeans, or maybe a leather jacket, that will remind them of that photoshoot every time they wear it. I welcome your creative input because this experience is all about YOU!

Essence of Maternity Boudoir

Boudoir photography is an intimate photographic style that highlights the sensuality of a woman, usually in the setting of a bedroom. 

With maternity boudoir, I want to give moms, especially first-time moms, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to capture the miracle of their body while carrying a whole new life inside them.

Maternity boudoir is designed to be a magical experience where the mystery of motherhood and the pregnancy glow is immortalized in a sensual, intimate photoshoot.

Why You Should Try Maternity Boudoir

I was a mother first before a photographer. So, I’m the girl with the baby bump pics in front of her bathroom mirror… and oh my lawd just to paint the picture for you, it was the ugliest color of tan and brown, and I truthfully had every intention of changing it but never got around to it….and now I’m stuck with ugly bump pics in my cardboard color bathroom with some hairspray or face products in the background. I just know so many moms can relate to this.

Because of this, I take pride and joy in bringing expectant moms the photoshoot that they deserve. Maternity boudoir portraits are special, you’ll never be able to get this moment back once it’s gone. Each maternity photoshoot is different and and deserves to be documented to last a lifetime.

Maternity Boudoir - A Once in a Lifetime Experience

My biggest regret in life is not doing a maternity portrait shoot with either of my children. Time flies and even though it can be a looooooooong 9 months (technically 10, but who’s counting), it’s actually minuscule when we look back on our life. So I encourage and tell all my friends, immortalize this moment now! Don’t let this moment pass, don’t be like me who is now looking back with such disappointment in myself for not recognizing the importance of the moment and how I will NEVER be able to get it back.

Motherhood in a Whole New Light

You may be wondering why you would want to do a maternity boudoir shoot – they’re just a bunch of “pictures” But when you think of it, theseare more than just pictures. These photos are mementos of your changing body that’s hard at work to create the most precious gift from up above.

When should you book a maternity boudoir photoshoot?

I remember waiting for my baby bump to really pop out and look like a baby and less like the burrito I ate for lunch. 

I had a legit baby bump around my fourth or fifth month of pregnancy. Every woman’s pregnancy is different so don’t worry if you’re showing later or earlier. What matters is that you and your baby are healthy and safe.

There is never a time where it’s too soon to start documenting the most exciting and rewarding journey of your life. 

Do you want to capture your miracle each month and their expansion? 

Are you uncomfortable in your body and really just don’t want to miss the opportunity? 

There are many reasons for booking a maternity shoot, but most want to capture their amazing womanly bodies creating life inside their very own life.

Preparing for Maternity Boudoir Photoshoot

Once you’ve booked a maternity boudoir photoshoot with T. Marie, here’s what you can expect on the day you step into our studio.

The first step is getting you into hair and makeup with my amazing artists. You’ll be nervous at first, it’s totally fine. I’ve shot hundreds of sessions and have a whole process to help get you through these initial nerves.

While you are sipping and relaxing in hair and makeup, we will start to talk through the outfit options you brought with you.

This whole experience is about working with you, your body, and catching those beautiful images that you didn’t even know existed.

I’m here to put your mind at ease and walk you through every pose from head to toe. And I always show you my camera shots just so you can see how amazing you look even before editing!

It’s an instant confidence booster, and the rest of the session is super smooth and fun.

After the session is over, I take you through each of the albums that we discussed in the consult so you have some ideas for the ordering session.
