20 Photos That Prove Boudoir Can Be Classy

“Classy” is a complicated word. The dictionary defines classy as stylish and sophisticated, and yet society likes to associate it with different adjectives like posh, modest, timid, and even restrained or quiet. What adjectives come to your mind when you think of classy?

And then if I say “classy boudoir photos” – what do you think of?

There are people who will try to tell you that someone being sexy is not being classy. Let’s talk about that.

Wait – What’s Wrong With Being Sexy?! 

NOTHING. Let’s get this straight: there is absolutely nothing wrong with being sexy. There is absolutely nothing wrong with women who embrace their sexuality. It should be celebrated! 

Instead, society loves to shame women for feeling in control of their sexuality, feeling desired and experiencing and enjoying pleasure, and I won’t add to that discourse. No way. Society also instructs us that you can only be one: classy or sexy. But that isn’t true. Being sexual is not ‘trashy’ and being shy, modest, or covered up is not by default ‘classy’. 

My point here is that boudoir photography can be classy and sexy. It can be whatever you want – we can pull out all of the different sides of you as we adventure through discovering your various emotions, feelings and experiences that come up in your photoshoot. You’ll be amazed at what arises when you feel comfortable, confident and in control on the day of your shoot! 

You can look classy AF in your boudoir photos while still celebrating your sexuality, sensuality, and femininity!

I’ve gathered up some of my favorite photos that flip society’s notion (okay, obsession) with women’s need to “pick” between classy or sexy to show that women can be whatever the hell they want.
