This is entirely hypocritical, so please excuse me, but if I did a budoir shoot, I wouldn’t want any of them blogged. I would, however, want to be able to see your work conveniently placed online. But then again, maybe you’ll get enough willing volunteers to make it work! Laughing

I had a shoot and my photog has used some on my pictures ( I wanted her to so I could also post them)

before I did my shoot i looked on here and other photogs websites to get ideas of images that I wanted my pictures to look like. I must say the one thing i HATE HATE is when they have the pictures so you can not save them nothing makes me madder then that! If you want to make sure your name is on it put your name in the middle etc so it cant be cropped out.

And also something else to add, make sure you give your clients a current & correct price list before they book with you. I booked mine over the phone and the prices she told me were 1/2 of what they actully were when it came time to order them. So expecting to pay $400 at the most I ended up spending $900

I would love it if boudoir photographers blogged as I’ve often found it hard to find examples of a photographer’s boudoir work.  I’m working on finding an affordable boudoir photographer that I like and often they have little to no examples of their work online.

When it comes to my pictures, I think I would be okay with them being blogged if I got a say in what images were made viewable to the public.  But I’d definitely be open to discussing that with a photographer.

I agree – I would love to see more photographers boudoir work before committing.  But I do understand that a lot of the women wouldn’t want them up.

If I did them, I would be ok with it if I either had a right to say which ones were up, or if there was creative cropping.

I did a boudoir session with my photographer. It was his first and we both agreed that they wouldn’t be blogged. But after we saw how they came out, I offered to let him blog them (I don’t show much) and he was very excited to do so. He has actually, since then, decided to offer boudoir sessions to his futures brides. So my pics will be helpful for his portfolio!

You may post your blog in the Share Your Blog thread, but not on the boards. You may also have it in your profile.

To add to the discussion, I would be 100% uncomfortable with my boudoir photos being on a blog, but I would be willing to let my photographer show them, in person/print form, to prospective [female] clients who ask to see more of their boudoir work. I don’t mind other women seeing them if they’re thinking of doing something similar, but there’s no way I want them on the internet or emailed to someone – it’s WAY too easy for stuff to get passed along, copied and pasted (even screen shots!), etc. and my photos are meant for my husbands eyes and my confidence, not for random strangers to look at.

Plus, I have a creeper ex who I would NEVER want to have any sort of access to something like that. No matter how slim the chances might be of him coming across them, it’s not a chance I’m willing to take. Cropping or no cropping, my body is not for display. 🙂

@mishelleez: you can always do a screen shot if you want to save a pic for inspiration. You can do active window screen shots on PCs and actually select the space where you want a screen shot on Macs. Hope that helps :-).

I can definitely see the benefit of a blog… I just wouldn’t want to be on it! And I wouldn’t feel comfortable working with a photographer who pressured me to allow him/her to post my photos there, or did so without my express permission and approval of each shot.

A couple of my boudoir photos are actually on the website for the studio i used. I had to sign a release when I went in and they chose really tasteful ones. That being said, the actual gallery is private and you have to call and request access to it, and they only give it to women who are interested in the studio. There’s also a large in-studio folder with all the photos in them, and i’m sure mine are there, too. But i knew this going into it. 

My wedding photographer actually hired a model to shoot for boudoir sessions–and THOSE she has up on her website, available for all to see. If you want your brides to see something, a model could be the wayt o go.

I would not mind if a few of mine were blogged if i had a say so in them. I was more covered up for some of them than i am when i go to the beach =]
