I Did a Boudoir Shoot: Sin City Boudoir Review

As someone who has always been a firm believer in embracing self-love, I recently decided to take a leap out of my comfort zone and do something daring for my 45th birthday: a photo shoot with a boudoir photographer in Las Vegas. Initially, the idea of posing in my bra and underwear in front of a camera made me feel a bit hesitant, but I knew that this was an opportunity to challenge myself and celebrate my journey of self-acceptance. Little did I know just how transformative this experience would be. And not only did I pose in my undies, I actually got fully naked at the end. Michael at Sin City Boudoir was just that awesome! I cannot recommend him enough!

Photographer: Michael Jones

Finding the perfect photographer is crucial for a successful boudoir shoot. It’s essential to have someone who understands your vision and makes you feel confident and sexy throughout the entire process. Sin City Boudoir went above and beyond my expectations in this aspect. Michael’s vibrant, warm hearted and professional demeanor instantly made me feel comfortable. He took the time to get to know me, comprehend my insecurities and aspirations and established an environment where I could genuinely express myself. I followed his recommendations and got my makeup done at Sephora to save money.

Sin City Boudoir was so amazing. I’m so glad I chose Michael for my photographer. I wish I could show you all of my pics so you could see how hot they are. But they are for my husband’s eyes only! I knew I wanted photos that showed EVERYTHING. Most of the other photographers I contacted wouldn’t agree to photograph me fully nude. Not sure why female photographers aren’t comfortable doing nude pics, so if you want nudes, you will have better luck hiring a male photographer like Michael. Check out his portfolio.

My experience went better than expected. Michael explained everything up front. His prices are so much lower than anyone else I researched. When you compare his images to others, the price differences, it’s really a no brainer.

We did the shoot in a big suite at the Paris hotel on the Vegas strip. The price of the room was included with my fee, so I didn’t have to pay anything extra.

Here is a pic from the shoot. NSFW, but it’s just a boob!

Participating in a boudoir shoot is supposed to be about embracing self-love and empowerment. I wasn’t really looking for that, because after seeing a million boudoir sites, they all pretty much have the same schtick. They market boudoir as this kind of all-healing experience. Empowerment is THE only word they seem to know in the boudoir business. It’s used far too much and gets a little lame if you ask me.

I did this because I wanted sexy pics. And I wanted someone that knows how to take sexy pics. Having a man as my photographer was perfect, because he really knew how to bring out my sexy side. Men know what makes women look sexy. We started out doing classic lingerie boudoir, however by the end I was doing straight up nude images you’d see in dirty magazines! My husband LOVES them too.

Choosing the Perfect Wardrobe

When it comes to boudoir photo sessions, there aren’t any strict guidelines on what attire to choose. The key is to select outfits that make you feel self assured and attractive. Whether it’s a delicate set of lingerie, a comfortable oversized sweater or even your cherished pair of jeans, the decision is entirely up to you. Feel free to explore and express various facets of your personality through your clothing choices. I had some nice black lingerie I purchased at Victoria’s Secret.

Posing with Confidence

One of the major worries for a lot of individuals who are thinking about doing a boudoir photoshoot is finding the right way to pose in a manner that appears authentic and compliments their appearance. The great news is that you don’t have to be an experienced model to appear stunning in your pictures. The photographer will assist you throughout the entire process, offering guidance on poses that highlight your most attractive qualities and make you feel self assured. Have faith in their expertise and allow yourself to relax and embrace your sensuality. Michael knew so many poses that made me feel comfortable.

Creating a Comfortable Environment

A boudoir shoot is an intimate experience, and it’s crucial to create a comfortable environment where you can truly be yourself. Michael went above and beyond to ensure that I felt at ease throughout the shoot. From playing my favorite music in the background to offering words of encouragement and support, he made the entire experience feel like a fun adventure. I was a little nervous at first. But I chose a male photographer because I wanted to get out of my comfort zone.

I wanted to push the limits on what I could do. I looked at 50 or so photographers before choosing Sin City Boudoir, and most of the others seemed so blah. The photos all looked the same on every site. I don’t know why every boudoir photographer out there creates the same overly “girlie” photos. Seeing Michael’s portfolio just blew me away. His photos are unique. He has a way of bringing out the sexy in you. I’m talking the natural, sexier side. The hot stuff, if you know what I mean.

The Finished Product

After the shoot, I couldn’t wait to see the final results. It took a few weeks for Michael to edit the photos and work his magic. When the images arrived, I was blown away. Each photo captured a side of me that I had never seen before; confident, radiant, and unapologetically myself. Not every shot was perfect, but that’s the beauty of it. Boudoir photography is about embracing imperfections and celebrating the unique beauty that lies within each of us. Michael doesn’t need to overly edit or change the images. He finds what really makes you sexy and harnesses that in each image.

I will say this. I never really thought of my vagina as beautiful. But seeing the way Michael framed it in certain shots, it really looks good. Even for 45 years old and two kids, it looked super cute, lol.

Just Do It

If you’re considering a boudoir shoot, I wholeheartedly encourage you to go for it. It’s a fun opportunity to celebrate yourself, your journey, and your unique beauty. Whether you’re doing it for yourself or as a gift for a loved one, remember that this experience is all about you. Choose a photographer who aligns with your vision and values, and trust in their expertise to capture your essence in the most empowering way possible. I wish I would have done this when I was younger, maybe before kids to document my younger, skinnier, sexier self. But this was still great.

Sexy and Hot

The boudoir session I had with Sin City Boudoir was an unforgettable experience. It taught me the importance of stepping out of my comfort zone. It reminded me that true empowerment comes from within, not just from a photo shoot and that we all have the ability to love and accept ourselves completely.

Through my boudoir shoot, I discovered newfound confidence and a deeper appreciation for myself which I hope others can also discover within themselves. Always remember that you are beautiful, powerful and deserving of celebrating your journey through boudoir photography. And the biggest plus, my husband looks at them all the time, and we’re having more sex than ever! Can’t beat that.

  1. Wow. I really want to do a boudoir shoot for my hubby for christmas this year. I actually did them a few years ago with one of the so called big name photographers in Las Vegas. The photos were terrible. She kept having me do these ridiculous poses like hanging backwards off the bed. She even wanted me to do a handstand against a wall! I was like how is this sexy? Men don’t care about that stuff. They want to see T&A lol. I ended up not ordering any pics and lost the money on her “session fee.” I really like the pics on your photographers website. Thanks for this review.

  2. I feel weird about the idea of hiring a man to do my nude photos. I don’t think my husband would like it either. But I can’t argue with the point. Male boudoir photographers just take better photos (at least photos men would actually find attractive). Some of the stuff I see from these ladies is downright corny. It’s also not “empowering” and that word is so overused. It’s sexy photos. Mostly for our men, not for us. They just try to sell it as this amazing thing. It might be fun but it’s not going to change our lives forever.

  3. I agree to an extent. Most female boudoir photographers typically are doing boudoir for empowerment of women, not as much for the enjoyment of men (that is secondary). So the photos tend to be much more mild than the erotic stuff that male boudoir photographers create (because they think like men, obviously). Men like to see full nudes. But that’s not really what boudoir is about. So it depends what you want. Women don’t need naked pics of themselves IMO.

    1. Boudoir can be a lot of different things to different people. There’s no wrong way. Women can still be empowered through nude boudoir, so we shouldn’t shame women that choose to do it. It’s probably even more liberating and empowering to get fully naked. When I did boudoir about 4 years ago, I hired Michael Sasser in Los Angeles and I was fully nude. It was an amazing experience. This kind of argument is exactly why some women choose male photographers to begin with. Women always judge other women.

  4. It’s 2023. Women don’t need to choose a female boudoir photographer just because they are female. Like we’re fragile little dolls that can’t take care of ourselves. I don’t need an “all female staff” to make me feel comfortable. I choose any person I hire whether that be a doctor, a lawyer or a photographer based on their SKILLS not their gender. I want the best, and if the best is a man so be it.

    1. Yes! I agree 100%. I chose Sin City Boudoir because the prices were reasonable and the pics were very sexy. I had 20 or more boudoir photographers quote me $10,000+. Michael did mine for about $2,000. And he did them the way I wanted, fully nude. I actually had some of the photographers say that if I got nude then it wouldn’t be “boudoir” and that’s why they don’t do nudity. All I know is my husband loves them, and he didn’t care that a man took the photos. May be a problem for some women but my husband isn’t a jealous kind of guy.
