Classic Boudoir in Lingerie


Classic boudoir is the quintessential style of boudoir – in lingerie with a bedroom set. You can shoot this in all different types of styles.

She shows you how to shape and style the sheet while bringing you through the flow of poses that is most efficient for this style. And she pays special attention to the shots most likely to be turned into wall art.

Contemporary Boudoir – Clothed


Contemporary boudoir style is an excellent way to test the waters of boudoir with a client who comes in for a traditional portrait shoot. The wardrobe can be normal street clothes, such as a simple sundress, but you can add a boudoir feel by exposing more skin, creating interest with shaping the body and doing detail shots, and by shifting to a Vogue-style lighting. Creating a contemporary boudoir feel is all about getting playful and adjusting the mood.

Contemporary Boudoir – Implied Nude


Implied nude boudoir is classic, elegant, and so popular with clients. Kara Marie shows you how to accomplish this look through minimal wardrobe and careful posing. If you incorporate these into your boudoir shoots, you will have many happy clients.

“Kara Marie” Style


Kara Marie has developed her style over the last several years.

Here she gives you an inside look into how she creates these playful, experimental images.

Kara Marie started shooting boudoir with bridal boudoir. This is a lovely little demonstration of a 3-minute shoot you can do with a bride on her wedding day before she gets fully into hair and makeup and her dress. This can be done in a hotel room, bridal suite, or wherever she is getting ready, and can be done with the veil or a lace robe.

Bonus: Dark & Moody Sensual Boudoir


When we think of boudoir, we often think dark and moody. In this lesson, Kara Marie teaches you how, in even a bright room, you can achieve that just-a-kiss-of-light look that makes everything more sensual and intimate. This shoot has a casual atmosphere and is easy for your client while still producing steamy images with lots of variety to choose from.

“All the content that Kara Marie shares with the world is GOLD. Her teaching style is casual/laidback and not super technical (so it’s easy to understand and be inspired by).”

Teira F.

“I have been learning from Kara since my mentorship in 2017 and every time she comes out with new education I am aways blown away and inspired. Once again here I am with this new course and it is nothing less than spectacular. Whether you’re a long term student or just starting out in boudoir you will get something out of this course. I absolutely love that it’s very inclusive with body types from fully clothed to nude as well which isn’t something you get to see with a lot of educational courses, so this was very much appreciated. What I think I love most however, was the reminder to get out of your head, think out side the box and not be afraid to “break the rules”. I’ve had a session since starting this course and noticed how I felt more in the zone rather than worrying about technicalities which is something I’ve been missing since becoming more of a seasoned photographer. In turn this thought process yielded more creative shots and image turn out. I can’t thank Kara enough for putting in all the work to create the education courses and mentorship’s she’s done over the years.”

Tiffany M.

“I am already a massive fan of Kara's work and approach to boudoir, in fact it was her talk at Portrait Masters back in 2019 that changed it all for me! I appreciated seeing this new course by her for various reasons, but the top reason for there being more representation of various bodies (I'd love to see all educators do this please!) Her approach makes it easy to understand and you are able to apply her lessons to any woman and any location you are in. Thank you Kara for being so rad!”

michele m.

“This course is so good and so comprehensive - a great addition to the Boudoir Series (which I already own)! I've already been putting the things I've learned from just watching a couple of the modules into action in my photoshoots. Thank you for including multiple body types! You're the best Kara Marie!”

Laurie B.

“I already love the class, I have watched it for about half an hour now and there is so many valuable advice there, I just cant wait for my next boudoir session to try everything new I will learn! I have purchased the boudoir series about a year ago and it helped me a lot to improve my work.”
