Marilyn Monroe Inspired Boudoir Shoot

Lauren Demby's Marilyn Monroe inspired boudoir shoot is timeless. The natural light shines beautifully across the model's face. Lauren wanted to celebrate the model's sexuality without being too revealing or provocative. Well, she did just that, featuring a stunning wardrobe from Bare Necessities. In a society where women are constantly objectified as sexual objects to sell anything from clothes to beer, Lauren does an amazing job of displaying how women can be their own sexual beings without the approval or objectification of their bodies.

It is clear that Lauren has the ability to help her clients feel comfortable when shooting with her. Many women come to a boudoir shoot feeling nervous and uncomfortable with their bodies and sexuality. However, essentially every time by the end of the session their bold confidence shines through. This series showcases self-love and a women's worth without the need for outside validation. The boldness and genuineness of the series is what drew me to Lauren's photography.

From the Photographer | My approach to Fine Art Boudoir is to make the images timeless, classic, and organic without being to revealing or overly sexual. Fine Art Boudoir should celebrate a woman’s femininity by embodying romance and her unique beauty in every image. The inspiration for the session was Marilyn Monroe’s “Last Sitting,” a very sophisticated and timeless shoot. The shoot took place at a studio that was bare, except for the bed and sheets that we used as props. I wanted the environment to be clean and simple so it did not detract from the images. I wanted the studio to resemble the setting from the "Last Sitting" but have a more modern feel by including the brick and windows in some of the frames.
