I thought I would bring you some tips today for planning and getting ready for your boudoir portrait session.
- Be sure to pamper yourself in the week ahead of your session. Make sure to have a fresh haircut and color at least two weeks ahead. A manicure and pedicure a day or two ahead is nice…. remember to wear loose clothing to the session location, nothing too tight or that might leave marks on your skin.
- Bring more outfits than you think you will use! It is fun to use your significant others’s work shirt, or a dress shirt and tie, his favorite sports team shirt… lingerie, of course! Don’t forget a simple bra and panties, even a loose sweater to pull off your shoulders, and a satin robe. There is a wide variety of clothing to wear in a boudoir session.
- Definitely pack your accessories! Heels, stockings, jewelry, hair and makeup supplies (if you’re doing your own). Hats, gloves, flowers, pets, anything can be a prop as long as it means something to the two of you!
Your boudoir session can be fun and flirty or serious and sensuous. I love to empower women and help them see themselves as their loved ones see them. To quote Drake “Beauty isn’t about having a pretty face. It’s about having a pretty mind, a pretty heart and a pretty soul. I love this quote! To me it fits perfectly with why I do boudoir images. To show you the beauty within along with the beauty on the outside.
Give me a call and we can meet for a private no charge consultation. We will talk about all aspects of the boudoir session. Carol
