Boudoir Christmas gifts for men.

The popularity of boudoir photography is on the rise as more and more women choose to create personalised Christmas gifts.

A fashionable Christmas gift…

FYEO, the UK leaders in boudoir photography, are seeing record numbers of women choosing to give For Your Eyes Only Portraits as romantic gifts this Christmas. Women are giving photographs of themselves, dressed in the favourite lingerie and heels, displayed in an album or calendar and gift wrapped ‘For Your Eyes Only’. The studios have seen a 60% rise in bookings for their services this year and have opened two new studios to cater for the demand.

The FYEO Experience …

Women travel to the studios in Kent, Essex, Bucks or Manchester to have their photographs taken by specialist FYEO,female photographers. The studios are private, black out studios, designed to put customers at ease. During the shoot, the client is directed into flattering poses using specialist photographic techniques called ‘body -sculpting’. Clients bring their favourite lingerie, swimwear and jewellery to accessorise their boudoir shoots. After the shoot, a client chooses her ‘best shots’ to go into a ‘For Your Eyes Only’ album or For Your Eyes Only Calendar. The recipient is both thrilled and delighted with his surprise Christmas gift when he sees what his gorgeous lady has done for him.

Shane Ritchie’ story…

Shane Ritchie “ My Wife’s FYEO portraits gave me butterflies”
"Yeah, wow, amazing. Loved it. I was really impressed. I could not believe that this was the woman I would get to spend my whole life with!

I came over all nervous! That's when the butterflies kicked in... The feeling the first time we met, the first time I saw her naked. My wife's FYEO pictures gave me the same butterflies I had when I first met her. I think every woman should do it! The FYEO pictures are a complete celebration of how gorgeous she is. It's very sensitive material but there's no shame in it. It's the most personal gift and makes you want to keep it to yourself but also share it as it's done so beautifully, such good quality."
Shane Ritchie

Alesha Dixon filmed ‘Look but don’t touch at the FYEO Studio…
"FYEO offers ordinary women a taste of the glamorous photo shoot and photo shop world.
 The process really boosts confidence."

Alesha Dixon

Why FYEO has become so successful…
It’s a revolution! FYEO PORTRAITS has just opened two new studios to cater for the rise in popularity of this activity and has two more studios on the way!

Entrepreneur Alexandra Burns*, who set up the boudoir studios in 2002 said “ We are thrilled that so many more women are choosing FYEO to help them create these romantic Christmas gifts. Women have become so much more comfortable with their bodies in recent times. The concept of stripping off for the camera has been made less scary because of the sensitive approach from the photographers at FYEO. That’s not to say some ladies aren’t shy about the prospect of having a shoot. My staff are all experts at putting people at ease — with their full guidance and styling throughout the experience. Women leave the studios bursting with excitement and feeling full of confidence! Every client is treated with care and sensitivity at all times during her adventure….”
*Alexandra Burns is 37, married and has two children. She lives in Henley on Thames, Oxfordshire.

The FYEO Technique…

FYEO specializes in modern photographic techniques, including airbrushing and ‘body-sculpting’ (a term coined by the studios to describe the use of light, shadow and yoga style poses). The FYEO technique, as featured on BBC One’s programme ‘look but don’t touch’ with Alesha Dixon, gives peoples even more confidence to bare all for the camera.

One Customer’s story…

I was so excited but nervous before my shoot. All the staff at FYEO made me feel very welcome. They did my make-up beautifully and then talked me through every stage. Once in the studio, my photographer directed me, and knew exactly what to do to make me look and feel amazing. I had such a fun time and would definitely recommend it to anyone. It was a great experience, and now I have some gorgeous photos to give to my hubby this Christmas! Thanks to you all at FYEO!!!
