Boudoir Photography in a Hotel Room (NSFW)

As with all locations, boudoir photography in a hotel room has its advantages and disadvantages. It will be clean and uncluttered, private, and might have good light making flattering photos easier to get. However, it also adds to the cost of a photography session, and the furniture will probably be different from yours. In this blog posting, I will be talking about the pros and cons of a hotel room as a photography location.

Advantages

Boudoir photography in a hotel room gives an uncluttered location for sexy photos.

One of the biggest advantages to doing boudoir photography in a hotel room is that it will be clean, uncluttered, and, for some hotels, the furniture will be unique and an enhancement to the photos. Only in the cheapest hotels would the furniture be a distraction, and we would never work in one of those.

Another hotel advantage is that they all have sheer curtains that provide privacy while allowing the light into the room. This light is often very flattering for photos.

Speaking of privacy, in a hotel room, nobody should be interrupting the photo session. No kids coming home from school, no friends dropping by to chat, etc. This allows us to focus on the photos, helping us get more and better ones.

Yet another possible advantage of a hotel room is that there can be a sense of adventure that arises from being sexy in a different location from normal. Think about going with your lover to a new location. Isn’t the sex a little more exciting? This excitement can show in the photos as well.

Disadvantages

You never get something for nothing. This adage really applies to the idea of boudoir photography in a hotel room. Good hotel or B&B rooms cost at least $100/night, often more. This can add significantly to the cost of a photo session. However, if you have some friends who also want to have boudoir photos, you can split the cost amongst yourselves. We can easily do several photo sessions in a day of hotel time.

Hotel room furniture is unlikely to look like yours. This might not be a problem at all.

The simple bedclothes and other furniture provide a clean but obvious bed for implying the imminence of sex
Boudoir photography in a hotel room provides a clean, uncluttered, and private location for photos that can show a sense of adventure or excitement due to the different location. Unfortunately, it also adds significantly to the cost of a photo session.

I have been taking photos since I receied my first camera around 1970. I sold my first photo in the 1980s. Since then, many magazines, newspapers, textbooks, web sites, and even National Geographic Television have used my photos. Many pf my photos have been honored with awards, including several "Best in Show". I believe that sexy is a state of mind, not an age, weight, ethnicity, or amount of clothing. I am happy working with individuals and couples of all types. Contact me today to schedule an in-home, in-hotel, or in nature photo session showing how sexy and beautiful you are!
