Popular Photographer Gives Brief History of Boudoir Photography , West New York, New Jersey

Boudoir photography has been around for ages. A French term for a woman's private room, boudoir photographs capture women in intimate settings, including bedrooms and hotel rooms. Typically, the women are photographed in lingerie, nightgowns, and chemises. 

Diego Molina Photography is one of the most sought-after photographers in New York City and New Jersey. He brings an artistic eye to everything from wedding and boudoir photography to family portraits and maternity pictures. Here, the talented photographer takes us through a brief history of boudoir photography:

boudoir photography

  • Pin-Up Girls: In the 1940s, the introduction of pin-up girls established boudoir photography as a sexy, voluptuous style, helping to launch the careers of many models and actresses during the era. Pin-up photography is most notable for its celebration of the female physique, relishing curves in new and unprecedented ways. 
  • Art World Transition: Later, in the 1970s, boudoir photography shifted from the sexy patriotism of pin-ups to the art world. Artists and photographers endeavored to capture the female body in authentic ways, painting and photographing women either in lingerie or without any clothing at all. While it sometimes created controversy, boudoir photography was largely understood to be in the interest of art. 
  • Sexy Wedding: Today, boudoir photography has been embraced by the masses. It is often enjoyed as an intimate extension to wedding photography, usually meant to be shared solely between the bride and groom. 

There's little doubt that boudoir photography has had a colorful, eclectic history, and Diego Molina Photography works to capture that history in his work, creating photos that are both intimate and alluring. His studio also offers professional hair and makeup for boudoir photo shoots.
