As per Hillary West Boudoir privacy policy, the image you see in this blog are shared with permission

Boudoir Photography is an experience that is raw, emotional and allows a woman to find her inner goddess. No matter what comes to mind when you think of boudoir, the one thing that is consistent is privacy.

Privacy is what I uphold!

Boudoir is for everyone, but having intimate portraits on the internet is not.

How do you keep your private, personal images away from eyes that they are not intended for? At Hillary West Boudoir, my policy is to ensure that every woman has the opportunity to feel sexy and beautiful. If you are someone that doesn’t want, or can’t have your portraits shared, that is OK. I understand the art of secrecy and keeping your privacy. We'll discuss all the details during our pre-session consultation over coffee or at a location of your choice, where I can answer any questions and concerns you may have. You’re PRIVACY is a TOP PRIORITY! No photograph is ever shared without your written consent for each picture. During your pre-session consultation, we go over this in depth and do not proceed until you are completely comfortable. To keep things even more private, I have several session locations available for you to choose from; my “in home” studio in a private neighborhood, your home, a private hotel room, and yes, even outdoor locations (while not so private, these can be very intimate and private if chosen correctly).

What if I would like to share my portraits but maintain my privacy.

Some women love their boudoir portraits so much that they are willing to allow me to use some so you can see what we do here at the studio, but not all of them. They choose the mysterious, anonymous images. These portraits keep their face private and just for their loved one. Sometimes these can be the best boudoir images, because it brings out the sensual mysterious goddess that we all are!

Online Galleries are not my thing, I prefer in person reveals!

Private galleries often get hacked, especially boudoir galleries, so how do I keep your pictures safe? First, no image ever goes on a private gallery website without your written permission. I do not offer any online viewing for this reason. We'll view all of your photographs and products “In Person” either at my home or your home. All portraits will be deleted after your products are delivered (at your request) or saved on a private external hard drive for one year, in case you would like to order more.

Professional print labs are just that, professional and safe.

Portraits will be sent privately and securely to a professional printing lab…no drug store developing here! Only the best and most professional will do for us. Our printing lab works with the best boudoir photographers around the world, so your portraits are in great hands!

When your session is finished, you will walk out more confident, more in touch with your femininity, and feeling like you are the ultimate goddess! By choosing Hillary West Boudoir, you will be getting a unique experience that you cannot get from a groupon or someone snapping some pics with an iPhone. For me, it is all about the WHY. I want women to feel beautiful, confident, and empowered by their own beautiful sense of self. I want you to love you, exactly as you are and know that you are imperfectly perfect!

No matter what your reason is for wanting to experience a boudoir portrait session, contact me and we can set up your free pre-session consultation.

I am a body positive boudoir photographer based in Norfolk, Virginia. Since 2015, I have been empowering women, and sometimes men, to embrace their bodies and celebrate their unique beauty through photography. My passion for boudoir photography stems from my own struggles with body image and self-acceptance. I believe that everyone has the right to feel confident and beautiful in their own skin, regardless of their size, shape, or imperfections. My goal is to create a safe and inclusive space for my clients to express themselves and feel comfortable in front of the camera. I am dedicated to helping my clients see themselves in a new light and feel proud of who they are.
