Boudoir Photography (aka: Click, click, boom!)

Listen on Apple Podcast or Spotify

In this episode, Ams and Kat explore Boudoir Photography. 

Boudoir photography is a style of intimate photography that captures individuals in a tasteful and empowering way, often in lingerie or semi-clothed, celebrating their unique beauty and sensuality.

Boudoir photography can be a powerful tool for promoting self-love, body positivity, and empowerment. It challenges beauty standards and encourages women to embrace their uniqueness. 

But first, if you are looking for a little buzz without the drawbacks of alcohol, why don’t try this Canna-cocktail, the Pumpkin Spice (or, if you are looking for a little extra spice, add Bourbon). 

Mix one up while listening to this episode’s hot tale: Ams never thought she would play on a show bed, but at a recent house party, she decides to hop on with a playful partner and a sexy voyeur. Never say never!

Finally, the Wives decide to book in for a boudoir photo session as their sexy homework.

  1. Hello Am’s and Cat!
    Long time listener, but first time commenter. Love the show. I’ve recommended your podcast to many of my community of smart ladies in Bay Area, CA who were looking for new ideas and adventures (and also some mature men looking on how to freshen up & maybe understand their relationship with their spouse).

    Anyways … I heard the boudoir podcast and thought I’d recommend a different style of boudoir. I have a trusted friend and artist who paints ladies. You start out with makeup session, then YOU are the canvas for being caressed with beautiful paint of different colors. I’m happy to share some samples of my personal photo session and his instagram (I’ll get his consent later if you are interested, but I’m sure he’ll say yes please to me giving the private instagram folder to you).

    VERY professional AND absolutely works with the lady’s personality and comfort level. I know that’s one comment you mentioned about your experience at Desire, that you’d didn’t have the personalized package. My friend enjoys the art of painting ladies, and I’m sure he’d paint men too if Mr Am’s & Mr Cat were interested. When I tried it, I was (and still am) shy about my body image but afterwards was VERY empowered in embracing the whole painting process. I’ve guided 3 ladies to this experience so far and they’ve ALWAYS come back with fab comments.

    Either way, let me know if you are interested next time you’re in the Bay Area visiting and I can set you up. 🙂
