Day in day out, my team and I are welcoming wonderful women to our photography studio, here in Havant, Hampshire, for boudoir photography shoots. We are specialists in boudoir photography. It’s our absolute passion.
But you might be wondering…
What is boudoir photography?
Boudoir Photography: A definition
Translated from French, the word boudoir means “a woman’s bedroom or private sitting room”.
This is spot on because you’ll find the Johanna Elizabeth photography studio offers you an intimate setting not dissimilar to your bedroom at home.
The space is perfect for shooting you, with a sumptuous contemporary design that will encourage you to relax.
As well as our attractive bed, you can try posing on our beautiful chaise longue, or on our vanity table; wherever you choose, we always make sure we capture you in the best light.

Bridal Boudoir Photography
Usually, we would recommend that you tell your partner that you’re booking a boudoir photography photoshoot, rather than it being a complete surprise. This way they can enjoy getting involved with choosing your lingerie as well as your preferred poses. Boudoir is certainly a great experience and one where you can learn a lot about each other!
This can be an amazing surprise gift for your future spouse!
As much as boudoir is an experience for you and your partner to share though, we’re big believers that you should consider exploring a boudoir journey for YOU primarily. The fact that you can gift your beautiful images to someone else is the bonus.
Remember, you don’t need a reason to make yourself feel good!
Boudoir photography: A confidence boost
Boudoir shoots at Johanna Elizabeth are an empowering exploration and an incredible confidence boost. We can make you look and feel fabulous and help you to rediscover your inner goddess. She’s in there still, we know she is!
Particularly if you’re not feeling amazing about yourself right now, a boudoir photoshoot could be the confidence boost you need.
Remember, how you see yourself is not how others see you. We love showing you how fabulous you are!

Do I need the ‘perfect’ body for the boudoir?
We understand that the thought of having a photoshoot and wearing little to no clothes in front of strangers might make you feel, well, nervous to say the least! But seriously, you can relax a little about that. That’s a completely normal worry.
Our all-female team and I have been in the same position (it’s actually a ritual of ours that all new staff members have a boudoir experience too! Honestly, we have the same body hang-ups as you do.
Boudoir photography is for women of all shapes and sizes. Your body is perfect as it is right now.
