Why boudoir photography?

Why do women book a boudoir experience?

Most of the women who book a session with us are doing it for themselves (even if their partners will also enjoy the images!)

Usually it is about seeking more confidence and boosting their self-esteem.

Often this lack of positive self-esteem is to do with body confidence. A lot of women have never felt beautiful or never had a good photograph of themselves. Things might have changed; perhaps they’ve become mums or put on (or even taken off) weight and they need to learn to love their new body. Having a Divine Divas boudoir experience helps them to see themselves differently and more positively.

Other women book a session to help reconnect with their true selves again. They’ve been busy being mums, wives, carers or workers and haven’t had the time or energy to focus on themselves. Doing a boudoir experience helps some women to get in touch with the sexy being that has been hidden away.

There are also women who book a boudoir experience to mark an event in their lives, they are having a special birthday, they’ve lost loads of weight, they’re getting married, they’ve recently divorced or they’ve met a new partner, they’ve been diagnosed with cancer or they’ve gone into remission. Whatever the change we can help to celebrate the new you.

Whatever the reason, the results are always positive. Women flourish from having a pampering makeover and a fully guided photo-shoot and when they see the images during the viewing session they can’t believe they look so gorgeous.

At Divine Divas we work with ‘normal women’ who don’t have washboard stomachs, whose boobs may not be as perky as they used to be, with cellulite and stretchmarks and all the other things we beat ourselves up about.  We help women like you and me become more accepting and to learn to be kinder and learn to love ourselves.

If you are one of the many women who could do with a bit more self-confidence have a look at our website and get in touch if you have any questions or would like to book.


“I had been diagnosed with breast cancer and told I had to have a mastectomy in a few weeks time when I came across the Divine Divas Facebook page and thought it would be an excellent way to commemorate my breasts. Right from the first communication the team were friendly and helpful. They were completely understanding of my intentions and what I wanted from the shoot. Jess was lovely throughout the shoot, guiding me to get the best from the photos and always very respectful. I can’t recommend them enough and the pictures were amazing. I’m so happy I did it”.

I’d had a very challenging couple of years and as a result, my confidence had really taken a dive. I’d also reached, and past my mid-forties, and felt the passage of time, leaving its effect on my face and body. Something clicked inside me, I knew I still felt young and vibrant inside and needed to prove this to myself. I discovered Divine Divas online, and booked myself in. The day I spent with them was wonderfully relaxing and surprisingly fun. Jo and Emilie put me at ease, and I laughed so much, especially at the ridiculous positions I seemed to have to stand and lie in to get the right look. I was amazingly made up, and had my hair done. And now the photos, or rather exquisite art work, exist as a lifetime reminder to me, to believe in myself and have confidence in the Divine Diva that lies within me. If you’re considering this, and think you can’t. Well you can! Do it! You deserve it!

“I can’t praise or thank the team at Divine Diva’s enough – from the first email contact to the collection of my images they were all friendly, welcoming, considerate and basically fabulous!

I will confess to being absolutely terrified when I arrived but Jo put me at ease straight away & Neill was great, really taking the time to understand my motives for the shoot and what I wanted to get out of the experience (a birthday with a 0 and a feeling like I might just be past it and not wanting to regret not being brave enough later in life!)

Jo was great with the hair and make-up, again listening to my ideas and discussing various options. When it came to the shoot Neill was very easy to get along with, made me laugh pretty much all the way through and the time just flew by – an absolute must for anyone regardless of your personal motives. A real confidence boost and whoever is in the images I have – thanks as I’m still not convinced it’s really me!!”
