Boudoir photography has long been associated with sensuality and allure, typically showcasing the softer side of subjects in intimate settings. But what happens when you turn the tables and inject a healthy dose of humor and masculinity into the mix? Enter the world of a hilarious boudoir session with a burly, tattooed gentleman that challenges conventions and embraces unexpected charm.
Eric introduced himself this way on the phone when he called inquiring about his own boudoir session. "Listen, I'm a big burly dude with a full beard and tattoos. I just want you to be prepared." We chatted over the phone and he told me he wanted to do something fun and funny and wanted to play around with all the poses I typically put my female clients because he thinks his girlfriend would get a kick out of it.
Eric is a larger-than-life character whose physique is matched only by the vibrancy of his tattoos. He's the last person you'd expect to find in a boudoir photoshoot, yet here he is, ready to redefine what it means to be both sexy and funny in front of the camera.
From the get-go he was full of energy and open to an array of poses. One moment he would strike a dramatic pose, on the vintage chase lounge only to break into uproarious laughter seconds later. The juxtaposition of his tough exterior and infectious belly laughs creates an atmosphere that's both captivating and sidesplitting. We had the absolute best time photographing this session.
