It takes a special kind of person to have the confidence to step up to the plate of a completely undermined genre. For years men’s boudoir has been portrayed as just as taboo and ludicrous as the art of boudoir in general. As a photographer and lover of daring to do the unthinkable.. I was ready to take on the challenge.. Just needed a willing volunteer. Enter Angelo, one of JDP’s most notable members– Around these parts, we call him the cosplay fiance.
LumberSnack // Men’s Boudoir
When I approached Angelo with the idea of lumbersnack, I didn’t know how to introduce it. I couldn’t just say “Hey, take your shirt off and lay on the bed–“, it took some heavy thinking. The execution was actually far more simple than the thought process. I simply came to Angelo the way I have most clients for a boudoir session.. “Hey, I’ve got this idea.”
I said it to him in one sentence.. lumber.. snack.. and, photographers… ladies, you’d be surprised how it turned out. Angelo brought all the props. It was a men’s boudoir, but it was really his boudoir.
As a photographer, men’s boudoir photography just seems exciting. The men aren’t normally self conscious but are instead.. treating the whole thing as a humorous chance to get to do something they wouldn’t normally. Angelo was no different, taking the time to use his prop axe to the fullest.
It’s getting Cold Out, are you planning to heat things up?
You can book a men’s boudoir, or any boudoir any time you want! Jasemine Denise Photography has a studio open year round and all you have to do is book a session. Chicago, get it! Also special thanks to Angelo. I know you didn’t have to do this, but I am so glad you did.
