Seduction Photography has reopened!

But due to the uncontrolled spread of Covid 19, for your safety and mine, proof of vaccination is required to book a shoot. I will be masked for the entire shoot, you will be masked whenever we're not actively shooting.

Stay Safe.

I’ll continue blogging as I can. I hope you’ll check in from time to time.

If you’d like to throw some money at me because you’re just that awesome, I could always use the help with bills while I’m not able to shoot. My tip jar is always open.

Reopening, Take Two

Back in the Spring I was pretty sure the COVID disaster was getting close to calming down, and was about to kick the doors open here in Seattle. That’s about when the pandemic started to spike again due to right-wing stupidity. I remained closed. 2021 October AdBut now that people are about done putting up with the troll bullshit, and vaccination proof is being required for a lot of things, the mouth-breathers are being less successful at spreading disease. I think it’s probably becoming safer to think about getting back to doing photoshoots with folks who are vaccinated and are willing to mask up and social distance. For now, I’ll only be taking bookings via direct email, which you can find on this website. So yes, Seduction Photography has reopened! Still, due to the uncontrolled spread of Covid 19, for your safety and mine, proof of vaccination is required to book a shoot. I will be masked for the entire shoot, you will be masked…

It’s been about a year and a half since I’ve done one of these. Since the last one (which, incidentally, was also with Gretchen, shortly after we first met), I traveled back to DC, then down to NC, and then my car broke down on the way to SC (NOT HER FAULT!). It took…

You deserve to feel beautiful. And you deserve to see how beautiful you are. Your narrative is your story, and you deserve to tell it in all it’s glory. Tell it just the way you want, as only you can. Professional intimate portraits by Seattle boudoir photographer Louis Shackleton will help you do that. And we’ll work together to do it artistically and beautifully. Whether you want formal business portraits or sexy boudoir images, Seduction Photography by Louis Shackleton is here to help you look and feel your very best. Together we’ll create timeless, jaw-dropping images you’ll want to hang on your living room wall.

Take a few minutes to look through my portfolio, and begin your journey to an unforgettable investment in yourself.

You've been looking for something.

Have you looked at every Seattle boudoir photographer’s website that you could find, but….? But none of them really spoke to you? Is there something you just can’t quite put your finger on that’s kept you looking?

All the pictures are pretty enough. And many of the photographers are clearly talented. But the photos… just aren’t you, are they? This photographer works in this studio and the photos are too over-processed. That photographer works in that studio and you could just swap out the client and all the photos would still look the same. Another photographer works in another studio and… And none of the photographers are your photographer.

And I understand. Commercial boudoir photography is often treated as just a quick copy/paste/sell job. It’s a shame, really, because boudoir photography should be an art, not a weapon of mass production.

The unique boudoir photography in Seattle you're looking for.

So if you’re looking for a Seattle boudoir photographer that’s going to make your images not only incredible, but also unique to you and you alone, then look no further. Because your story is unique, and your boudoir photos should be, too. Because it’s your story, let’s tell it your way.

Originally from Philadelphia, then North Carolina, and now settled in Seattle, boudoir photographer Louis Shackleton loves what he does, and does what he loves. And it’s his passion for telling personal stories that will weave your narrative, your story, into your photos.

The lovely model for the header image on this page is Che.
