Mr. Bill meets Couture Boudoir® Barbie

Oh No Mr. Bill!

I saw this picture on my friend Critsey Rowe's blog and laughed so hard! Critsey is the talented photographer and creator of Couture Boudoir® photography. And she obviously also has a great sense of humor :D

Normally she photographs people. But last year she took a creative turn. . .

And photographed a session of Barbie Boudoir photos that went viral online. I thought they were fun, glam and very clever.

While many women have the confidence to go all out in a boudoir shoot, when I decided to do a shoot with Critsey on the North American leg of her international tour in 2009, I was a bit more timid.


It wasn't a very racy boudoir shoot but it was a boudoir shoot nonetheless. Something to cross off the bucket list. An ex-boyfriend's mom used to say every Christmas when the guys didn't want to pose with her for a family portrait: "Every year we get another year older and uglier so it's better to take pictures now." She didn't believe in waiting for next year. LOL

So, I decided it was time to step out of my comfort zone behind the camera and get in front of it with someone I trusted taking the shots. In the end I was very happy with the photos. IMO they were fun and flirty.

While some may think boudoir photography over sexualizes women's bodies I think the end result is a product of the intention. They can be over the top sexy, a way to celebrate, accept and appreciate your body or something in between.

If you're interested in either having Critsey photograph you or learning boudoir photography from her, you can learn more about both on her website www.CoutureBoudoir.com
