Boudoir Shoot Soirée
Capture Your Sensual Essence
A night for you to reclaim and celebrate your sensuality and sensual expression; through movement, connection to your body, in the safety and presence of other women AND to be captured in those moments by a professional photographer.
What is BSS?
BSS is born from a desire and curiosity for sensual photography, from seeing how women celebrate their beauty and their bodies through photoshoots. This has always been magical to me; and inspiring; and a little bit intimidating too.
I knew I also wanted to do a shoot like that. But to go there one-on-one with only a photographer, with little to distract me from the fact that there’d be a camera pointed at me, felt a little bit too far out of my comfort zone.
I instead imagined a space where I could just feel myself (as you know, you sometimes do ;) - when you walk past a mirror and your mind goes ‘dayuuummm’ or ‘I look really good today’; when you dance and it doesn't matter what that looks like; when you stroke your arms and face and feel the softness of your touch; when you feel sexy in front of your partner. I imagined a space where I could feel like that, and wherein I could be captured like that too. A space wherein I could focus on that feeling of connectedness to myself, on my sensuality.
I imagined ‘how much fun would it be if I could just go somewhere every couple of weeks, and feel like that, and then also get those stunning pictures? Just a couple a night - and I’d build a portfolio over time’.
BSS was conceived and gradually started to get more distinctive shapes.
By now, this night is so much more than what I originally envisioned. It’s a space to connect to your sensuality, to express your sensuality in the company of other women. With Claudia Hendriks as a photographer (who’s really really good too). She’s part of the sisterhood. She doesn’t stand apart, but she’ll be ready to capture you when you feel that deep connectedness to your Self and your senses - because that’s where true beauty and sensuality lay.
As such, during BSS we’ll provide for all the tools to help you and guide you towards that place of connectedness. We’ll have a powerful AF opening ceremony. We’ll also have three settings in which you can potentially be photographed in: soft & light, dark & seducing and colourful & expressive. We’ll have kimonos and fur coats to dress up (or down) in. We’ll have flowers and feathers and soft rugs and sheepies. We’ll have delicious pure foods and drinks that stimulate the senses of taste and smell. We’ll have music and dance.
We’ll have Sensual Freedom.
his is for the woman who
longs to be more expressive in her sensuality, and would love to have a place where it feels safe to express ALL of her, no matter what that looks like. Afraid you’ll be too much? During this evening, we invite you to express even MORE of your too muchness.
would love to connect to other women that are going through a journey of exploration. Who desires to feel that she is not alone in her desire to get more juicy, playful and sensual.
feels slightly uncomfortable at the idea of being photographed in your sensuality, but it also kinda excites you
has caught herself wanting to ALLOW herself to feel like that; in this space we break through internalized patriarchal beliefs around slutshaming, body shaming, and ideas that confuse self-love with narcissism
feels her ALIVENESS through sensual movement & connecting to her femininity / feminine essence (spoiler, this is true for all of us, it's just a matter of connecting to those energies). It is her connection to life itself. It is her connection to Self and it is her connection to God. And she, just like us, believes that there needs to be more space to express that in our world.
has been thinking about doing a sensual shoot, but hasn't been sure about the awkward posing, or the cost of a shoot like that, but you still wants to have stunning photos of herself that she are allowed to use both for personal use as well as for business/branding (yummy)!
just wants to have FUN; Some women-only time, female connection & companionship. We all know the beauty and the softness present in those spaces (and if you don't, honey pleaseee join us)
an awakening & reconnecting to your sensuality, your prowess, power, confidence, love, self-esteem that lays within the recognition of your beauty that is the Sensual Feminine

Just to clarify; BSS focusses on sensual expression and we acknowledge and celebrate the many forms and shapes that this can take. Notwithstanding this, this is *not* a sexual space. Nudity is surely welcome (after all, we encourage you to explore what your sensual expresion looks like), but touching of genitalia or other explicitly sexual acts are not.
The night will be guided by Noa and Ocean - two muses of creation who've been on the path of finding their flavour of authentic feminine and sensual expression for years. Ocean (who will softly guide you into sensual movement) does intuitive coaching, movement practices, and works with channeled prettifications. She's also building an online school called Sensual Self-Seduction Studies, to facilitate you building a loving, thriving and healthy relationship with yourself (she considers the connection to the body and your sensual expression to be nothing but a key component in that).
Noa (who will guide the opening meditation) is highly creative and gifted with a form of synesthesia that allows her to see your energetic & emotional body.
During the night Claudia will take 2 breathtaking high resolution pictures of every Goddess who joins (pics to be used for whatever you like baby - personal, branding, whateverrr). Claudia's a high-end photographer who's been focussing on female branding & sensual shoots. She's a lovely warm person who will capture you without you needing to pose - she's got an eye for beauty and will see you when you radiate.
to the worship of your beauty
she lives inside your soul
