For Your Eyes Only? Navigating Privacy in Boudoir Photography

Many of you contemplating a boudoir session often ask about privacy concerns. A recent email I received highlighted this issue:

“Hi Patrick — I love your work and really want to do a photoshoot, but will my images be shared on Instagram or anywhere else online? I have a high-profile job, so it could be a problem. Honestly, it’s why I haven’t scheduled yet.”

This is an absolutely valid concern and one that deserves clear addressing. Privacy in the realm of boudoir photography is not just a policy; it's a promise. Here at Patrick Michael Boudoir, the integrity of our client's privacy is paramount.

Your Images, Your Control

First and foremost, you should know that as a professional boudoir photographer, my top priority is ensuring your comfort, safety, and confidentiality. I understand the sensitive nature of boudoir photos and the trust you place in me by choosing my services. Therefore, I assure you, no images are shared without your expressed written consent.

When you invest in a boudoir session with us, you are investing not only in beautiful photography but also in an experience that includes having 100% control over your images. That means no sharing unless you decide it’s right for you.

A Chance to Inspire Others

While privacy is non-negotiable, the opportunity to share your images is always there. Many clients find themselves empowered by their sessions and choose to share their images to inspire others. It's often the case that they were themselves motivated by someone else's boudoir images. However, this choice is deeply personal and entirely yours to make.

Options Tailored to Your Comfort Level

We understand everyone’s comfort level is different. That’s why we provide several options for those who do wish to share their images. These range from full disclosure (‘anything goes’) to sharing anonymous detail shots where the face or identifying features are concealed. And of course, there exists the option to keep your images completely private.

Respect for Your Decisions

Whatever your decision, it will be met with the utmost respect and professionalism. Our goal is to make sure you feel celebrated, empowered, and secure throughout your entire boudoir experience. We are here to create beautiful art together, in whatever way you feel most comfortable.

If you have any concerns, questions, or would like to discuss your options further, please don't hesitate to reach out. Your boudoir session is a personal journey, and we're here to ensure it’s everything you've dreamed of—privacy included.
