I am back today with some tips on how to get the best boudoir photos
Every woman wants to feel beautiful, sexy, and stunning. A professional boudoir photo session can give you that feeling, boosting your confidence and letting you feel like a sexy supermodel for a day. Check out these 10 ways you can plan for the perfect boudoir photos to show off your beautiful self.
Find the right photographer.
More than any other type of photo session, a boudoir shoot requires you to choose a photographer you can trust. If you don’t feel comfortable with the person taking your photos, your images will show it. You don’t want to look stiff and awkward, so choose a photographer who can help you relax and feel as beautiful as you are. Its normal to feel like its way out of your comfort zone. Your photographer should be able to help you every step of the way. From knowing exactly what is going to happen, to posing and having fun. Its so incredibly important to feel comfortable with your photographer. Make sure your photographer has experience with someone who has a similar body type too. If you don’t see it on their portfolio just ask. I know I have photographed hundreds of different women of every size and shape over the years…its important that they are experienced in posing YOUR body type.
Buy something new.
What better way to feel sexy than to dress up in new lingerie? Check out your favorite boutique for some sexy pieces or even go to Victoria’s Secret. With the lower prices, you can pick up more outfits and have more options for your session. Our Clients dont even have to worry about that if they dont want to. We have an expansive boudoir closet that will fit size 0-5x no problem. You can let us style you in outfits that will fit your body and flatter your assets 🙂
Play some mood music.
Music at your boudoir session will make you feel more comfortable and confident. Take some time to create a playlist of your favorite songs—songs that make you feel strong, sexy, and powerful. We have a sexy boudoir playlist that many women love, but if you want to have your own, we can totally do that! Music is so important to create that mood that gives those smoking hot images
Change your look.
A boudoir shoot is a great time to try something new—a little more bold makeup look or a sexy JBF hairstyle. There’s no one definition of sexy, so feel free to mix things up and embrace your personal beauty.
It may feel ridiculous, but hesitate to practice stretching before you come in. Practice arching your back laying on the bed….and hold it for a minute. Its way harder than it seems. Try arching your neck back as far as it can go, or popping your bottom out. These simple stretches will help your body bend a little more easily when it comes for your session day:)
Embrace the nerves.
It’s totally normal and okay to be nervous. Feeling nervous means you’re outside of your comfort zone, which is awesome! And don’t worry about what the photographer sees when they look at you—their job is to make you look gorgeous. They want to capture the best of you, and that’s exactly what they see. Its so incredible to see yourself from someone else eyes
Don’t worry about weight.
You don’t have to lose a few pounds to book a boudoir shoot. Come to your session as you are and let the photographer—and your wardrobe—make you look stunning. Your photographer can give you tips on dressing to suit your body type and will pose you in ways that highlight your beauty. For us, we have a huge closet to style you from in pieces that are guaranteed to make you look amazing. Those extra pounds you want to lose won’t even show in the camera anyway.
Be open to possibility.
A boudoir session requires you to do things you don’t normally do and strike poses you may have never even considered. Trust your photographer’s experience and be open to any ideas they have for your session. After all, their job is to make you feel gorgeous. I tell all my clients that the more awkward the pose feels the better it actually looks. The camera sees things so very differently than the eyes do.
Drink lots of water and avoid overeating.
If you want to look your best and be comfortable, it’s important to stay hydrated and avoid any foods or drinks that could make you bloat. You also don’t want to eat a big meal before your boudoir session. If you feel overly full, you won’t feel sexy.
Above all, just fucking have fun with your boudoir session. Relax and let your photographer help you show off your sexy, stunning self! You will absolutely never regret it. You can see just how incredibly gorgeous you are. You will be amazed…I promise.
