in the style of Vancouver boudoir photographer Rob Shaw
Boudoir photography is an unapologetic celebration of your beauty, femininity and strength. The best boudoir photography puts you in your best light and captures what is unique and wonderful about you.
What is Modern Boudoir?
Modern Boudoir is the style I work in to bring out what makes you uniquely beautiful. Modern Boudoir is about portraying you at your authentic best, in a clean, modern setting, all lit with gorgeous, natural-looking light. Modern Boudoir puts more emphasis on you as a person and your personality and emotions, rather than on frilly backgrounds and stock poses.
Your session will be unrushed, with time to chat, get comfortable and to communicate what your goals are for the session. The pictures themselves are important, but I want the process itself to be as fun, enjoyable and comfortable as possible. I wants you in your best state of mind, feeling confident and attractive. You should remember your day of boudoir photography as the most fun you ever had in front of a camera. Putting on lingerie and hitting poses is only a small part of the process. I want you to feel truly beautiful, because I believe how you feel about yourself is what will end up on camera.
MODERN BOUDOIR RATES
I don't believe in charging a session fee, then charging a high fee for individual prints on top of that. Instead I offer one all-inclusive fee which includes your photo session and your high-resolution, edited pictures.
All-Inclusive Session $299
- minimum 90 minute session
- unlimited looks (i.e.: unlimited wardrobe changes)
- fifteen fully-edited pictures
- high-resolution digital files of edited pictures
For shooting outside my studio, there is a $25 fee.
"It was personally my first time doing a boudoir-type photo shoot. Like many women, I don't have much self-esteem. Not only does Rob make you comfortable in front of the camera but also in your own skin. I gained confidence and power. When you feel great, you look great. Looking at the results within the pictures I was pleasantly surprised. I looked great. Wait, did I just say that about myself and my body? Yes, and I am owning up to it. My boudoir photo shoot with Rob made the feminist side of myself come out. Every body type is beautiful just like every woman is. It made me believe in myself and realize that what you reflect is what makes you beautiful, and inner beauty is most powerful."
"I chose to do boudoir because I hated being photographed. I know it sounds counterintuitive. I don't like the way I look in pictures at all, and I wanted to have images of myself that I could love and not cringe at.
"Robert did just that for me. He is a talented photographer, but in the end it wasn't about the sexy poses (although we did some of those), or the glamorous outfit. I felt so at ease with him because he made me feel like whatever I was wearing or not wearing, I was good enough.
"Robert, you have the soul of an artist and a true eye for beauty. Thank you for creating a safe environment for me to explore my body. Thank you for making me feel beautiful."
"Honestly, I felt like my dreams came true! I am a little crazy about photography and selfies, and always wanted to have morning shots with window light, in bed... with breakfast! And you made it happen just the way I imagined it!
"I am very picky, I have to say, about how I look in pictures, and about retouching and composition. You have the talent and skills! I’ll come back as a customer for sure!"
"I had such a fun time on my boudoir shoot with Rob! There is this calming presence about him and his studio, and I'd definitely shoot with him again."
"Recently have had the pleasure of doing a boudoir shoot with Rob Shaw. As soon as a walked through the door, I felt I was walking into a very professional and safe environment. Rob Shaw is a very intelligent photographer and definitely knows what he is doing. He was very kind and easy to talk to, which helped with making me comfortable during the shoot. He met and exceeded all my expectations. One of the best experiences and favourite photo shoots I have done to date."
