Hi! First I want to welcome you, and thank you for stopping by. My name is Ore Adesina, and I’m a boudoir photographer based out of Oklahoma City. I photograph boudoir (including male boudoir and couples boudoir) and absolutely love capturing portraits.
But you may ask, why boudoir photography? My response is, why not? It’s a chance for you to embrace your whole self. There are no layers, masks or objects to hide behind. The focus of the session is entirely on you, and my desire is for you to see how beautiful you are, imperfections and all.
There is a level of vulnerability and trust that you place with me when you come in for a boudoir session. You are agreeing to lay yourself bare (figuratively and sometimes literally), and I appreciate and am honored that individuals and couples trust me to complete such an intimate and personal type of photography session.
I really enjoy connecting with people. I love making them feel relaxed and confident during their boudoir sessions, and making them squeal with surprise and joy upon seeing photographs from their boudoir session is just the icing on the cake.
I’m excited to share my love of boudoir photography with you on this blog. Follow along as I share:
1. Photos from boudoir sessions;
2. Creative ideas and personal photography related projects;
3. Tips and advice on boudoir sessions; and

8 Random Things You Should Know About Me
I get really excited about photography — I tend to geek out a lot when I’m around other photographers, or people who take photos as a hobby. I’ll try to keep it contained for our boudoir sessions, although I make no promises.
I’ve enjoyed reading all of my life — when I was in middle school I read every book in the school library and then had to go to the public library to get new material.
I really, really like bacon (like, I mean really). A close second is fried plantain.
Amazon Prime is my Kryptonite — the one-day shipping option is seriously amazing.
I love wedding cake. I think it’s the best. I’ve never been married, but I’ve gone to three cake tastings to “help” friends pick out wedding cake flavors. It was a sacrifice, but I was willing to take one for the team.
I have to make my bed every morning — if I don’t, I feel like I can’t successfully accomplish anything else for the rest of the day.
If you’re familiar with the “Red River Rivalry,” you should know that I went to the University of Oklahoma for undergrad and the University of Texas for grad school. Every year when the teams are getting ready to play each other, friends ask me who I’m rooting for to win. I’ll never tell.
Friends who come to my house to hangout must expect to be fed. I grew up in a household where guests were important, and as a thank you for coming you fed them. Friends coming over for dinner at my house know to wear stretchy pants.
