Boudoir has got to be one of my favourite types of sessions to shoot. I could go off and list the reasons why, but I think what tops it off for me is how confident and beautiful clients feel once they see the photos. There’s something about getting in there, baring it all and just going with the flow.
My number one top tip for feeling the most confident at a boudoir session, is go out and buy something you love. If it’s a jersey bra and panty in baby pink, then go for it! If it’s a black lace set, then by all means! It can even be your partners favourite sweater, as long as your comfortable it will transfer into those pictures.
Another recordation is to pamper yourself. It’s not everyday a women buys lingerie and gets in front of a camera. If you booked a boudoir session, theres a reason! These pictures are treasured for a long time after, why not take some time and get your hair and make up done? The night before, have a long relaxing bath and enjoy some well deserved me time.
If you’re coming to one of my sessions, there is bound to be a glass of champagne ready for you, and a little champagne goes a long way when you’re in front of the camera. I always get giddy and excited whenever someone is interested in a boudoir shoot. It’s so much fun and worth all the nerves.
