Karen French Photography

The Most Published Wedding Photographer in the Country


Our Clients


At Karen French Photography in Orange County, our boudoir clients are every day women – real women – who have chosen to do a boudoir photo session for a variety of reasons. Whether it’s to surprise a special someone as a gift, to feel even more empowered and confident, to spice up a long-term marriage, or to remind themselves how beautiful they are (to name a few!), it’s something to celebrate. Every body is beautiful, and we love to capture that as a reminder.


You may think that boudoir photography will push you a bit out of your comfort zone—and that’s exactly why our clients love it. It’s an amazing confidence booster! Some of our clients who have chosen to do a boudoir session for themselves are mothers with children (take time for you!), are celebrating a milestone birthday, have recently worked hard to get into better shape, are going through a life change like a divorce, are working to build their self-esteem, or want to immortalize their beauty. Other clients have decided on boudoir to give as a gift to a fiancée for their wedding or a husband or boyfriend for a birthday, anniversary, or holiday like Valentine’s Day or Christmas. Regardless of the reason, for us, boudoir photo shoots are personal, and that’s why we ensure that you’re as comfortable as possible.

The KFP Experience


Your KFP journey starts in our hair and makeup chair with a glass of champagne or sparkling cider. You’ll meet your professional hair and makeup artist who will ask you what type of style you’re looking for, and work with you along the way to make sure it’s exactly what you want. Our three hair and make-up stylists have worked directly on many celebrity and fashion shoots, two have even mentored under the industry legend and world-renound makeup educator, Donna Mee, and graduated from Mee’s prestigious Empire Academy of Makeup. Their expertise will make you feel even more beautiful and, before you know it, you’ll be looking in the mirror and have the confidence to get in front of the camera. This is where the magic happens!


Next up is lights, cameras, action! During your shoot, Karen will guide you through poses and utilize props to get the final images you’ve been envisioning. You’ll have a minimum of 4 different lingerie outfit changes and a have a wide range of photo styles, too.
