the

BEE

The honey bee in The Bee & The Key represents the many different sides of a woman's sensuality.

 

The bee can easily depict the woman who embraces the sweet side of her sensuality. Bees do produce sweet, decadent honey after all. This sweet little bee is the woman who delicately caresses her partner to share her affections. She is demure, delicate, and bashful. She tends to choose more modest lingerie and embellishes herself in pearls and understated make-up. 

As sweet as their honey is, bees are also fierce and will strike you with their stingers. This fearless side of the bee depicts the brazen woman who isn't afraid to say, or do, what's on her mind. She is a bold, bombshell, vixen of a woman. She finds herself choosing harnessed lingerie, leather and lace, and won't shy away from a bold lip stick or dramatic smokey eye.

As different as these two sides of the bee are, they are still only two sides of the same coin. Every woman's sensuality is different and can change with each new journey life takes her on.

This is why the bee is such an important part of The Bee & The Key. Your boudoir portraits will represent whichever part of your sensual self that you would like for us to preserve, whether it be the sweet side, the fierce side, or somewhere in-between. 

the

KEY

As paramount as the honey bee is to our boudoir philosophy, none of it would happen if not for The Key i.e. your CONFIDENCE.

Your confidence is, without a doubt, the most important and rewarding gift you will get out of your boudoir experience with us. 

Your all-inclusive boudoir experience will have you strutting the streets and wearing that renewed confidence like a new dress. You will have that confidence preserved not only for your special someone, but most importantly, for yourself. 

A boudoir portrait session is NOT an experience exclusive to "model" types, or women in relationships. Every body type, level of modesty, and relationship status is encouraged to give this must-have experience a try. If you're currently not "feelin' yourself" - don't wait until you look more this or that to get your session done. The most rewarding boudoir experience is one where you learn to love yourself just as you are!

Disclaimer: The Bee & The Key is not liable for babies made as a result of the confidence exuded by our clients. 😉
