Boudoir Photographer

Astrid Nielsen | Boudoir Photographer

Despite my Nordic name, I am short, with light brown hair, (although I recently switched to copper!) and with gray-green eyes: forget the tall blonde blue eyes Danish girl!!! I was born 36 years ago, in Ferrara, and there is a photo of me taking my first steps with a film in my hand. “When I grew up” I wanted to be an architect and actually I became one: but probably who – on graduation day – made me dress up as a camera already knew how it would end! And indeed …

I suffer from vertigo and like climbing
I’m afraid of falling and I I roller skate around Modena
I am shy and I am part of an amateur acting company
I am the daughter and granddaughter of classical musicians and I listen to symphonic metal

I love traveling! Discovering new places is always exciting and stimulating: my work has led me to travel to different regions, such as Piemonte, Lombardia, Puglia and Sicily! For this reason, even if I have been living and working in Modena since 2013, I am very happy to move and reach my clients in Italy and why not … even abroad!

I love portraits, which is why I mainly dedicate to this genre declined in its various forms: boudoir, motherhood and families, single and couple portraits! I prefer to photograph with natural light, its shadows, the colors that the hours of the day and the different seasons offer. I love black and white, strong contrasts, shadows and very closed blacks; I like to capture the spontaneity of a smile, a slightly melancholy look, a funny expression and a hair disheveled by the wind! And above all, “touch” these moments: this is why I always print my photographs! I want to be able to arrange them in an album, write some notes alongside … and take them back after a while, browse them, curled up on the bed between the covers, and remember.
