"There is something indescribable about the rawness of beauty. The beauty that most don't get a chance to see, let alone capture. The beauty of purely being you. Messy hair, fresh face, just woken up. There's something freeing knowing you can be beautiful in those precious, unspoken, unseen, & pure moments."

I’ve been married 24 years, and my wife is beautiful. I try to remind her every day, even when she argues with me. She is even more stunning now then she was on our first date. And she looked amazing that September evening back in 1992… hair and makeup were on point! When I think she is most beautiful though is when she wakes up, no makeup, hair messy.
That gave me an idea… to capture our client’s beauty when they wake up not makeup. So in Summer 2016 we had our first ever For Your Eyes Boudoir Photography’s “Bedhead Boudoir” Photo Contest and Photoshoot Experience.
BEDHEAD BOUDOIR EXPERIENCE GALLERY & TESTIMONIALS
These beautiful women embraced their raw, natural beauty and jumped at the chance of letting us capture it. Read about their experiences
"Wake up and go with no makeup is pretty much an every day routine, so doing a photoshoot like this was an interesting idea. The shoot was fun and we spent most of it laughing while doing photos so getting to just be me for something so awesome was a great experience."
"There's a lot of depth to the idea of capturing the natural beauty of someone. It's not always easy to feel beautiful or sexy in your natural skin. It's interesting going into the studio with nothing on but pajamas & walking out feeling like the sexiest woman alive. It's stunning to look the photos & think "is that really how I look?" It's surreal to look at photos of a gorgeous woman with no makeup on & messy hair and be so inspired by them, then to stop & think you're looking at yourself."
"If there is one thing I try to teach my daughter it's that you don't need makeup & that being you is more important. Who you are out weighs any makeup. Inner beauty is more important. So embrace your natural beauty. The straight outta bed look. There is nothing wrong with makeup. It's no different than clothes or doing your hair. It accents what you already have. Just be totally comfortable in who you are as a person first. In your own natural beauty."
"I always love the natural look of no makeup and simple hair that really let's the actual person shine through. I'd done a photoshoot with Ben before where I was all made up, so this opportunity seemed perfect to capture a different side of myself. It really felt fantastic. And the photos themselves feel more intimate and special."
"The photos captured the beauty that I don't always see in myself, and seeing myself that way helped me to remember to not be so critical of myself. That this is how my husband sees me. He doesn't see the things I consider imperfections, he just sees me.” Berry
"Showing both sides of being captured with and without makeup on and and seeing how both still looked amazing was very empowering"
"These pics were so different because they really captured ME. My personality and charm came out better for these photos that the ones with makeup and outfits."
“I love the idea of capturing beauty in its rawest and vulnerable times. At first I was worried about not being 'all dolled up,' but to be able to actually see myself in a different light was refreshing! It was totally empowering, I loved feeling comfortable in my own skin, it's rare to find when you work a full time job and have 5 kids. I know I'm a 'real' person and this just showed another side to the real me. I felt this was the best version of me."
"This shoot intrigued me, because it focused on a woman's natural beauty. I just had to be a part of this one. I'll admit, it was little intimidating to go without makeup, but it was also very freeing and extremely empowering to do so.”
“I was surprised at how beautiful I looked without makeup. Having my raw beauty captured made me feel absolutely amazing. I felt sexy, playful, beautiful and sensual.”
"I have never been super comfortable with my body, and I wanted to step out of my comfort zone. At first I was nervous about being completely natural. However, I was oddly enough very comfortable with no makeup on and my hair a mess. I was in amazement.After the shoot was over my self-esteem was super boosted and I, for once found myself beautiful in all aspects. Once I saw the pictures, I was in amazement by how great they looked, how great I looked! I was such a wonderful experience!"
“I wanted to feel beautiful in my own skin and give my husband some great photos. It felt amazing! I have never felt prettier!”
