The Atelier, a Boudoir studio in Chicago

Happy Valentine’s Day! While others may be thinking of roses or chocolates, why not come up with something a little bit more personal?

The term “boudoir” actually means a women’s private sitting room or salon.  Photography, however, has given boudoir a whole new meaning. Boudoir photography started as early as the 1920s, featuring female powerhouses such as Clara Bow, Mae West, and Jean Harlow.

Modern boudoir photography features intimate and sensual photos. These photos make a great gift for your partner: on your the wedding day, the first anniversary (can you think of a better paper gift?), or for a special occasion like Valentine’s Day!

The Atelier 

The Atelier in Chicago is a wonderful studio that specializes in boudoir photography. Not only is professional hair and make-up included in their Experience package, they have a fantastic staff on-hand to answer any questions or concerns. The end result is gorgeous!
