Mens Boudoir Photography

DROP THE CONCEPT OF 'REAL MEN,' YOU ARE ALREADY REAL.

This begins the moment you decide to be yourself.

The media dictates that men should be lean, muscular, rugged and stoic. And sometimes that impossible external ideal can wound our sense of self worth. Deciding to accept and embrace yourself with being focused on achieving the idealized body is in itself itself an act of rebellion.

Why Do We Photograph Male Boudoir?

We know there is this misconception that boudoir photography is just for women. At Modern Muse, we know that intimate portraits can be an empowering experience for all humans. All of us want to feel confident, desired, joyful and absolutely at home in their own skin.

We’re all about creating a safe and supportive space where you, our awesome male boudoir clients, can express yourself freely- embodying the full range of human emotion. It’s okay to drop the mask and to be vulnerable.

 We promise you won’t find any judgment – only appreciation for the real you, and perhaps your inner deity.

From intimate, bedside moments that might make a partner smile and blush, to joyfully acknowledging “I am worthy!” – our male boudoir sessions celebrate your individuality, unapologetically. Whether you’re looking for dreamy and ethereal or bold and adventurous, we’ve got you covered!

So, if you’ve ever felt like an experience like this, and seeing yourself like this was off-limits to you because boudoir is only for women, think again!

It is time to take care of yourself and treat yourself to an incredible experience that will help boost self esteem while also celebrating all the emotions that make you human. From vulnerable and sensitive to confident and desirable. Boudoir sessions are for men too, and they can be about so much more than photos of your abs – they are about finding self compassion, feeling safe to be intimate and embracing self acceptance. Seeing yourself through someone’s else’s eyes can be tough. It is different from seeing yourself in the mirror or in a candid snapshot that someone tags you in.

Boudoir helps with self-acceptance because it asks us to look at ourselves objectively without any preconceived notions about being perfect. Boudoir for men, like boudoir for women, can help you get more confident about yourself by viewing your body with compassion.

You might be surprised to find out that male boudoir photography is not just for women. In fact, it’s been a growing trend in the past few years and many men are seeking this experience. Boudoir for men, like boudoir for women, can help you get more confident about yourself by viewing your body with compassion.

There are plenty of men out there who have these same concerns, self-conscious about how they look to others, comparing themselves to what they used to look like or think they should look like. 

This is why Modern Muse was created - so you can trade the lens of self critique for one of self compassion.

Your self-worth is not based on the number of likes you get on a photo or how many followers you have. It’s about feeling good and happy with who you are, no matter what others think. To make sure that your body confidence reaches its fullest potential, take some time for yourself to relax every day – even if it means just sitting down for five minutes after work and doing nothing but breathing deeply. In addition to caring for our physical bodies, we can also be mindful of our mental health so we can focus on appreciating the body we live in now. Sounds like something you might need right now?
