Meet Katya Horowitz

Hi, I’m Katya, a Russian-born, modern woman with creative and imaginative talents. As a young girl, I had the opportunity to attend many Russian operas and ballets while I was growing up. Being exposed to these dramatic and fleeting performances inspired me to surround myself with art and experience my life through the eyes of an artist.

During college, I attended art schools in London and Rome and visited some of the finest museums in the world. By studying the visual components and details of the world’s best art, I developed a deep appreciation for masterful compositions and human body shape. Before long, I began expressing my conceptual ideas and emotions using oil paint as my preferred medium. I eventually stepped beyond two-dimensional art and began studying dance. I acquired ten years of experience as a professional dancer and am trained in classical ballet, modern jazz, and hip-hop, to name a few.

But my story does not end there. Striving to broaden my creative abilities, I took an interest in photography and began capturing the intricacies of the female body. This hobby turned into a career, and eventually, I became a professional boudoir photographer. I love boudoir photography because it is a fulfilling and rewarding experience for myself and my clients. As an artist, it is fulfilling because I apply some of the same techniques I use when painting a picture or performing a dance. For my clients, the reward is the feeling of confidence that comes from seeing themselves captured in beautiful imagery, which is also rewarding for me.

My Boudoir Photography Philosophy and Mission

I believe boudoir photography is for everybody and every body type. Boudoir photography is all about empowering a woman while creating stunning photographs that inspire strength and confidence in her.

Whether on location or in the studio, my main goal is to provide a relaxed and welcoming environment where you feel safe. I promise you will leave your boudoir shoot feeling positive and self-assured, taking happy memories of the experience with you.

Why Hire Me for Your Boudoir Shoot

As your boudoir photographer, I’ll incorporate my artistic education and training as a professional dancer into your boudoir shoot to reveal the unique nuances of your body on the photograph. Using the latest cameras, lenses, and lighting, I’ll tell your story with my in-depth understanding of how to pose a body, a series of photographic angles, artistic composition, and a variety of captivating backdrops. Are you ready to cultivate confidence and sensuality within yourself? I can help with that. For those of you who are not quite ready, but curious nonetheless, let’s talk!

What Is Boudoir Photography?

We all interpret things in different ways.

So, I suppose there are many ideas about what boudoir photography is. On a high-level, my boudoir photography is sensual and classy imagery that reflects a woman’s style and femininity.

For years, society has been morphing the definition of beauty into a superficial thing. We see images of what beauty is supposed to look like, and if we don’t fit the description, it leaves us feeling inadequate with ourselves. I want to see females overcome their personal biases about the way they look and reclaim their identity as strong, unique and beautiful beings who are comfortable and confident just as they are.

My boudoir sessions allow an opportunity for women to take ownership of their bodies and connect with their sexual power. By attending a boudoir shoot with me, you’ll get stunning images of yourself that allow you to appreciate how much beauty there is within you. Together, we can push through the barriers and bring radiant confidence to the surface.

What Boudoir Photography Is Not

  • Boudoir photography is not pornography. While it does entail exposing much of your bare body, it is not a nude photoshoot. My images are classy with a hint of mystery.
  • Boudoir photography is not just for a significant other. Your boudoir portraits can be just for you.
  • Boudoir photography is not just for people who know how to pose for a camera. I direct each photoshoot and show you how to pose. Rest assured, I am always happy to incorporate your creative input.
  • Boudoir photography is not just for confident people. All you need to do is show up and be open to the experience. I guarantee you’ll feel more confident afterward.

Why Treat Yourself to a Boudoir Shoot?

The possible reasons to treat yourself to a boudoir shoot are endless, but here are a few reasons to ponder. Perhaps you’re celebrating a weight gain or loss, and you want to document the achievement with a professional boudoir shoot. Channel your inner strength with boudoir photos if you’ve experienced something traumatic and use the images to heal and stay strong. Boudoir photography is a beautiful way to commemorate motherhood, either during or after your pregnancy. If you’re getting married, boudoir photos make a romantic wedding gift for your partner. For those already married, boudoir photos are a romantic anniversary present. Get a boudoir shoot because you want to celebrate who you are and treat yourself to the experience.
