Where Did Boudoir Come From?
Ever wonder how boudoir started?
"Boudoir" is French for a woman's private bedroom or dressing room. Long ago, in the early 1920s, boudoir photography was considered tasteless and disgraceful. This was back when women were laughed at, mocked, shamed, and not treated equally or fairly. During this time, it was actually illegal.

Fast forward to the mid-1940s and 50s. Pinup girls, (my personal favorite style), were used to attract men to join the military. After that, boudoir popularity picked up and more and more women started participating in the trend.
These women paved the way for modern-day boudoir and the confidence-boosting photography we've come to love. Today, we see women all over social media, magazines, and in movies embracing their bodies and flaunting their stuff!
