Kick Off Your Shoes: Revel In The Magic Of Barefoot Boudoir Photography

Are you looking for boudoir photography inspiration? Look no further! Today we are talking all about barefoot boudoir photography!  

We’ll take a look at the benefits of barefoot boudoir photography and explore our most popular sets for kicking off those heels!

While it is true that we love heels for boudoir photography, choosing to go “all-natural” with a barefoot boudoir photography session is also a great option! Here’s why:

1. Barefoot boudoir photography embodies the word “boudoir.” 

The word “boudoir” means a woman’s bedroom or private room. There’s an intimate and cozy feeling that accompanies a bedroom or master bedroom suite, even for single ladies! It is a place where one can escape the cares and worries of the world, rest, reset, and prepare for what lies ahead. These spaces see our most vulnerable moments and selves as we engage in daily hygiene rituals, escape life, and find alone time. 

If you are anything like me, my bedroom is a place where the shoes come off! (Even the slippers!) Through barefoot boudoir photography, you express your raw authenticity in a safe and cozy environment that feels like your own private “boudoir.” 

2. Barefoot boudoir photography (and living) helps us find grounding. 

Have you heard of the technique called “grounding”? Being low to the earth with our heels planted firmly on the ground can bring a sense of stability and strength while connecting us to the energy of the earth. Posing barefoot can have the same effects, providing a firm foundation and centeredness one might not find while wearing high heels.  

3. Barefoot boudoir photography elongates the legs.

Kick off those heels and showcase your gorgeous legs from your hips all the way to your toes! Removing the heels allows your legs to continue for days without breaking up the line of your leg. Express yourself, by pointing your toes for a flirty look. Bring your personality to the set; be authentically you from the top of your head to the tip of your toes!

If you are considering barefoot boudoir photography, here are our favorite sets to showcase those toes!

Between the Sheets and Satin Sheets Sets 

Mirror the realities of everyday life through barefoot boudoir photography in our popular sheets sets. Recreate that lazy Sunday morning look between the sheets and barefoot! Show a little leg, point your toes, and let your natural beauty shine through in this set.

Garden Goddess Tub Scene

Channel your inner goddess in our waterless tub. Our all-white tub sits among our favorite in-studio house plants. Pose among our oversized flowers, faux bubbles, or in your favorite lingerie. This scene is also perfect for showing off your legs in the tub or sitting along the edge.

Teal Sofa and Black Couch Sets

Snuggle up in your comfy lingerie, favorite t-shirt, or oversized sweater to create this comfy, shoeless, at-home (or sexy) look. Without any other obligations or things to do while in the studio, this is your time to fully relax and enjoy the moment. We have a sofa for both our loft and boudoir studio spaces so you can create the look you want!

Fine Art Nude

In our Fine Art Nude Scene, your body IS the artwork with dark backgrounds and dramatic lighting magic. The resulting portraits will cause you to see and appreciate your body in a new way. This is the perfect barefoot boudoir scene. Relax into the full expression of yourself in its most natural form.

Light and Airy or Velvet Bed Sets

Slip off the shoes and onto your choice of bedroom scene. Channel the meaning of “boudoir” and fully relax into a version of your most authentic self. Choose between our Light and Airy or Velvet Bed Sets. You decide! Either way, leave the shoes off to create a powerful and intimate portrait.
