My boudoir photog blogs some of her clients but only if they signed 2 release forms that agree to being blogged.  I actually got a $100 album credit for agreeing to be blogged, which I thought was pretty sweet.

I would be totally fine using come selected images of mine in your portfolio, but for the blog, I would only be okay with using photos that didn’t show my face for anonymity.

I think if you just gives women options and ask what they would like, that would be your best bet 🙂

I am also a photographer and I recently separated my boudoir from the rest of my photography (so that, for example, if someone’s grandmother wanted to look at a blog entry of engagement photos, they didn’t have to weed through boudoir posts). I linked to everything on my main page so that people could choose where they wanted to go (my photo website, my photo blog, or my boudoir website).

For clients, I give people the following options:

  • First name and face
  • First name/first initial of first name/fake name and face cropped out
  • Or to have not it now show up anywhere at all.

I’d say half are okay with first name and face shots, and half want their faces cropped out. My boudoir blog is linked through my boudoir website. I think for the most part people love to see themselves blogged, even if nobody else knows it’s them!!

My photographer used my photos on her site and on her blog!

See aliciareneephotography.com for ideas.  Of course, she asked my permission and I signed a release form! : )

I’d be iffy about having any of my own boudoir pics blogged. They’d have to be some of the very modest ones. But, I would LOVE a boudoir blog with other peoples’ photos! That would serve as a fantastic source of inspiration, and would be a huge help to anyone browsing for a photographer to do their boudoir. Hope you can get some curvy-type women on there, they are sadly underrepresented in the sexy photos realm!

My photog put a few of my pictures up on her site for prospective clients (you can’t see my face in any of them though).  I think that if people approve them, then I don’t see a problem with it.
