08 Mar How to Prepare for a Boudoir Photoshoot
There’s something so sexy about having a boudoir photo session that you (and your lover) can cherish for years to come. If you’re not familiar with boudoir, it’s a photography session that captures you at your most sensual. Beautiful photography helps to display you in your favorite lingerie and your sexiest self. The photos can then be given as gifts to your significant other, hung on your wall, or kept as a special keepsake to remember just how gorgeous you truly are. If you’ve booked a session or you’re interested in the possibility, here’s a helpful guide on how to prepare for a boudoir photo shoot!
VISUALISE THE PERFECT SHOOT
Before you start looking for the right photographer, go ahead and plan out the vibe and ambiance you want to create with your photos. Do you want to look comfy but sexy? Do you want to look like a pinup doll? Do you want to capture exactly what your lover already sees?
Once you know the kind of mood you want to set, you can begin to find photographers that can produce that style. Don’t wait on your photographer to tell you what to do—go ahead and have a plan for how you want it all to come together. Then make it happen.
CREATE YOUR LOOK
Once you have your vision, you can start putting your look together with your favorite lingerie pieces. Lingerie will be the key centerpiece to your photoshoot, so choose something that makes you feel unstoppable.
You’ll want to have at least one knockout set that your significant other has never seen before. Go out of the box and blow their mind. Just make sure you try it all on before the day of the shoot. And don’t underestimate the power of a good accessory! A precisely placed flower, for instance, can make all the difference.
SPEND TIME GETTING READY
We’re not talking about giving yourself an extra hour on the day of the shoot. We’re talking about really spending time getting to your best self before the shoot.
The week before your session, avoid salty foods and alcohol or anything that will make you look bloated for your pictures. Get your nails and toes done in a saucy color that you love.
A few days before the shoot, touch up your highlights and consider getting a wax done. Avoid sun damage or faux tanners before your session.
The day before the session, lay out all your items for the shoot and make sure you know the time and directions for your session.
On the day of the shoot, fix your hair, do your makeup, and wear a comfy lounge outfit over your lingerie that won’t leave any lines on your body.
TAKE A DEEP BREATH
It can be scary to embrace your body and show your true self to the camera lens (and the photographer behind it)! But if you want to get a truly sensational shoot, you’ll want to let yourself be free and confident. Try to remain calm and relaxed and simply enjoy the day. You’ll look amazing in your photos and you’ll hang on to this beautiful memory for years to come. A boudoir photo shoot is truly a gift to yourself and a spicy treat for your significant other!
