While the vast majority of couples plan to exchange customary gifts of flowers, chocolate, and candy this Valentine’s Day, some will be honing a more erotic edge on Cupid’s arrow. At the Valentine Pin-Up Open House on February 7, women from across the Lower Mainland will sign-up to strip down.

While the vast majority of couples plan to exchange customary gifts of flowers, chocolate, and candy this Valentine’s Day, some will be honing a more erotic edge on Cupid’s arrow. At the Valentine Pin-Up Open House on February 7, women from across the Lower Mainland will sign-up to strip down. They’ll be exploring the growing trend of boudoir photography—much to the satisfaction of their significant others.

The annual ‘meet the photographer’ open house is the brainchild of Stephanie Wright, owner of Mystique Hair Design in White Rock. Wright says the idea came from a desire to make exploring and participating in the seductive art of boudoir a little less intimidating for women.

“With our customers’ interest in glamour makeovers and vintage looks, we sensed there might be an appetite to go one step further into boudoir as a sexy gift for that someone special, ”says Wright. “But good boudoir is not just about glamour and sensuality—it’s about confidence.”

Yet, for many women, that’s the hard part. The idea of posing for provocative yet tasteful photos in front of a virtual stranger is anything but confidence inspiring.

“Our idea was to create a fun, informal atmosphere for exploring the concept of boudoir, without having to take that ‘cold turkey’ initial plunge,” Wright says. “Before they even commit, they can meet the photographer and talk about any creative ideas they might have for a shoot. This way, it’s a familiar face behind the camera and they know what to expect going in—that builds a feeling of control and confidence.

“Every woman has a pin-up inside of her—we have the pleasure of helping bring it out.”

The Valentine Pin-Up Open House takes place at Mystique Hair Design in White Rock on Sunday, February 7, 2010. For more information please contact Stephanie Wright at 604.542.3616.
