Congrats for taking the leap and deciding to do a boudoir photo session!! I’m proud of you for all of the steps you’ve made in your journey of self love & self acceptance. I want your boudoir session to be a complete success. I want you to experience the powerful transformation of seeing your body as something beautiful and wholly yours. That’s why I want to share with you my top 5 tips for nailing your boudoir session. These tips help you get the best boudoir photo experience.
#1 Book your pre shoot consultation: This is your chance to get ALL your questions answered & review outfits before your shoot! The pre shoot consultation helps you feel fully prepared for the experience.
#2 Make a playlist of high vibe music: Oh yeah, everyone has a playlist. Don’t be shy! This is your time to shine baby! It’s time to bring together your pump up songs, the ones that get you groovin’, shakin’, and feelin’ yourself.
#3 Dress up: Pick outfits that make you feel like a badass! And they gotta fit too! If it’s too tight, you might feel uncomfortable and straps can leave marks on your skin. Too big can look baggy and unsupportive. Before your boudoir photoshoot is the perfect time to get fitted for a new bra if it’s been a couple years (or kids) since you last got fitted.
#4 Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!! Help your skin look it’s best by drinking lots of water and using hydrating lotion for the whole week before your shoot. Try to avoid drinking alcohol.
#5 Trust your photographer: This is my area of expertise. I know what is going to help you look and feel your best. Whether it is for posing instructions or guidance regarding your shoot, just trust me! I’m not here to make you look bad or embarrass you. I am here to bring out your natural inner beauty, elegance, and confidence.
Bonus Tip #6 Stretch before & after: That’s right – a boudoir photoshoot is actually a workout! Most of my clients are surprised about how sore their backs, core, and legs are after their boudoir shoot.
Get ready! You can do this! These simple tips can help you get the most out of this incredible encounter. I’m excited to meet you and honored to be a crucial part of one of your most empowered and extraordinary memories.
