BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHY PREP GUIDE
BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHY - PREP TIPS & TRICKS
Treat yourself to a manicure and pedicure, but avoid facials or waxing for 1-2 days before your session as they can cause redness or blotchiness. For some people it helps to bring a little white wine or champagne to their session to help them loosen up and relax. However, don’t overdo the alcohol--Photoshop can’t fix droopy eyelids and bloodshot eyes!
Cut out all tags from your clothing options including the launder instructions inside the garment (little white tags with care instructions). Invest in at least one cute bra/undies set (black is a great option) that makes you feel super sexy and fits your body type. (Consider high waist undies, corset belt, or bodysuit options if tummy is area of concern.)
Plus size recommendations. High waisted undies, under bust waist cincher corset garter belt, and/or bodysuits . Pair with off the shoulder cardigan, button down shirt or lace robe. Don't wear anything that is too small and digs into your skin or creates the dreaded “muffin top.”
Consider normal clothing if you’re nervous about being too revealing, such as off the shoulder tees, cardigans, tank tops, a fitted button-up shirt, or a high slit skirt/dress. Many of these items can be paired with cute undergarments to make a very sexy (but less skimpy) outfit. Remember that sometimes no outfit can be the best outfit. Some of our favorite images were photos taken when our client wasn’t wearing anything clothing-related, and simply covered up with a white sheet, towel, pillow, hat or a semi transparent window curtain.
Don't feel like you have to drop a ton of money on new items for your shoot. Although it can be nice to have one really elaborate piece of lingerie, we can create stunning images with the items you already have in your closet and affordable pieces from amazon. Load up on accessories. Pearls, long necklaces, gaudy costume jewelry, hats, fishnets or sheer black hose, and most importantly--cute shoes!! High heels are a nice way to extend the length of your legs. Don’s include loose & flowing (baby doll’s), corsets, busy patterns, neon colors and costumes. If you have any other questions about what to bring or how to prepare for a boudoir shoot, please let us know and we will be happy to help!
