One thing I always ask my clients is whether they want a certain ‘look’ or style for their boudoir images.
Some people have been inspired by certain photos and want to recreate them for a boudoir photoshoot and may be disappointed if they don’t walk away with that exact style of image in their album.
I want to make sure you love your final results!
But… most people have no clue what they actually want!
They might appreciate the art but don’t know all the different styles of photos that are available. Or, maybe they are more motivated by the desire to experience an empowering, luxurious boudoir experience than wanting a specific image.
I want to help you be satisfied with your boudoir images no matter the reason you signed up. So I’ll be sharing some high-key boudoir style photography inspiration featuring different boudoir styles for you on the blog!
This post is all about high boudoir photography, which is probably what you know as boudoir photography!
What is high-key photography?
High-key photography is a style of photography that uses bright lighting to eliminate or reduce any shadows. High-key shots typically lack dark tones and can be super flattering. High key is a guaranteed look when you book a session with me – as is black velvelt & bed sets.
There are lots of ways to approach high key pics, so let’s get inspired.
High Key Boudoir Photography Inspiration
One boudoir shot is one where your derrière is the main focus! Have a booty? Well, this is one sexy shot that everyone can do 😉
Are you planning on gifting your boudoir images to your soon-to-be-spouse!? That is one sexy gift that they’ll never forget.
Or perhaps you’re wanting to participate in a Boudoir Bachelorette Party? This kind of party combines spa relaxation, female empowerment, and connection. It’s a completely one – of – a kind party that will bond you for years.
Minimalism At Its Best
Simple yet striking, I love the artistic vibes of minimalist boudoir shots. These images will focus primarily on YOU the model, the clothing you’re wearing and all the little details without any distracting backgrounds.
Black & White
High-key photography lighting lends itself beautifully to making dramatic and stunning black & white portraits.
These images are super timeless & always a sexy, safe choice.
Sheers & Patterns
High-key boudoir-style lighting really brings out the patterns and textures of sheer fabrics. In my pre-session prep guide, I recommend clients bring a beautiful sheer scarf to their sessions.
A lace robe or other patterned fabric with a mixed pattern of sheer and opaque adds an interesting element of texture to your images.
The shower set utilizes my high-key background and is SUPER sexy.
It is a lot of fun to do and reserved for the brave at heart 😉 This set is available as a bonus when you set up a payment plan for any Collection.
Bring In Movement
I love pairing high-key boudoir-style lighting with movement, especially when paired with a sheer scarf or skirt!
You don’t have to be a dancer to accomplish this either – I will happily guide you through.
What Do You Wear To A High Key Boudoir Photoshoot?
With a highkey boudoir, there are so many options for what you can wear! I send each of my clients a detailed styling & prep guide, which gives a lot of tips & photo examples of what kind of outfits they should consider.
I suggest the following to work your high-key shoot:
- Cute, colorful bodysuits
- Sheer fabrics, like a sheer scarf, with lovely patterns and textures
- A sexy, lacy robe
- A flowy skirt
