I’m going to be writing a few short posts about choosing your photographer. Whether or not you end up choosing to work with us, I hope this helps you find the photographer that best fits with you.


Relationships are the core of human interaction. And for any relationship to be successful, the parties need to be a “good fit” for each other.


Two acquaintances become friends because they find each other to be a good fit.


A good fit is essential to a friendship.


A good fit is essential in professional relationships as well – relationships like business partners, or doctor-patient relationships, or mentor-mentee relationships.


Choosing a boudoir photographer is no different. Working with a photographer with whom you are comfortable is one of the biggest keys to producing an end-product that satisfies you. A photographer you trust will put you at ease and help you avoid looking “stiff” and “awkward” in your photo – assuming you want to avoid this, of course.


The only way to find out if you are a good fit with your photographer is start communicating. Consultation sessions are your chance to find out if that fit exists – if you feel comfortable working with them.


As an introvert, I fully understand the unease about reaching out to someone.


But in the end, it’ll be all worth the extra step.

I suppose boudoir photography means different things to different people. The word originates form the French language and referred to a woman's private sitting room. The word has, like many other words, evolved in its meaning.


While the Boudoir images may share similar characteristics with Glamour or Fashion photography, the purpose of it is quite different. Glamour and Fashion photography are typically commissioned for commercial use to be viewed by an intended target audience.


In contrast, boudoir is typically commissioned by an individual who is interested in the final images for their own personal use -- whether that be for themselves or as a gift to a significant other.


Some seek out a boudoir experience to rediscover themselves. Some want to escape their comfort zone and do something after divorce. Some commemorate victories like becoming healthier or overcoming an illness.


Whatever your reason, we want to welcome you to reach out to Helen Edward Photography. We offer a bespoke portrait experience that will pamper and empower you. Contact us today for more information.
