I know Valentine’s Day is still a few weeks away, but we’re all just so excited here at the studio and I couldn’t wait another day to talk about it!
This is your chance to get creative and have some fun along the way! I can promise you that there’s no better gift than getting to see your stunning self and the after results of your fabulous day of pampering, regardless of who you’re doing it for.
This day is all about celebrating love in all its shapes and sizes! Whether you’re single or involved in a romance with that special someone in your life, you want to be sure that you have a sizzling, fantastic boudoir shoot—so try these seven secrets to help bring out the sexy vixen within.
No, you don’t have to bring your own lingerie to your session. I have a wardrobe stuffed full of different outfits that could help unlock your inner goddess. Here’s the thing: if you really want to have a fantastic session, preparing ahead of time—including splurging a little on yourself—can help take it to the next level.
Go lingerie shopping. Pick out something that makes you feel incredible. Have you always wanted a little black teddy? A pink negligee? Whatever it is that makes you feel sexy, go ahead and spoil yourself a little.
The process of picking out your new lingerie can be the start of that creative spark that helps bring you in for an incredible session. Go ahead: explore something you’ve never tried on before. Check out that corset, or that sexy nightie that seems way too revealing to ever be practical.
As an added bonus, when you buy lingerie for your session, you get to take it home with you. That means your boudoir shoot can jump off the pages of your photo album and become reality for that sexy someone in your life—and you may both enjoy it more than you dreamed.
Do you love the way your calves look in your favorite pair of killer heels? Do you feel your sexiest in a revealing—or perhaps not-so-revealing—dress? Consider how your favorite outfits and accessories can factor into your boudoir shoot to create something even more incredible
In a lot of my sessions, it’s not the lingerie that makes the pictures. It’s the accessories: that personal touch that brings a special smile to a woman’s face and helps her show off her best assets. Let’s talk about what brings out the sexy in you so that we can incorporate it into your session!
I know it can be incredibly uncomfortable to reveal some skin in front of the camera, especially when it’s your first time exploring boudoir. Here’s the good news: by the time we’re done with your session, chances are, we’re not going to feel like strangers anymore.
During your session, be willing to step outside your comfort zone. It’s okay if you don’t like a specific pose or if a picture doesn’t come out to your liking, but be willing to try it. Check it out. Do something new.
You may be amazed by what you’re able to do. You might fall in love with the very picture you thought would hate. Trust me—I’m going to walk you through every step of this shoot, and I’ll create photos you’ll love. Take that leap of faith!
Valentine’s Day often gets a bad rap among singles and happy couples alike. It can feel forced, even alien, especially if you and your partner don’t usually engage in overt displays of affection or if you feel that the holiday is highly commercialized.
This Valentine’s Day, embrace the season!
Get a little silly. Add in some hearts and flowers. Dress in pink or red. Don’t worry: I’m not going to laugh at you! I love Valentine’s Day, too—so if you want to embrace the season and use it to show off some of your best assets, I’ll be right in there with you. If you want a Valentine’s themed boudoir shoot, I’ll work with you to make that happen.
If you want a great boudoir session, it usually starts with being comfortable with your photographer. I don’t have to be your new best friend, but the better the connection we have, the more I’ll know about you and the more likely you will be to fall in love with your images.
Let’s embrace that!
Ask me questions. Get to know me. Don’t be embarrassed by anything you want to ask: I’ve heard it all before, and I’ll probably hear it again.
When you’re comfortable with me, you’ll be more comfortable in front of the camera—and that means a better session that you’ll be more likely to love.
Boudoir shoots are an amazing opportunity to unleash that special spark from within you that you knew was always there, but never allowed to come to the surface. You can experiment with all sorts of poses and styles, and I will be there to guide you if you need it. The secret, however, is to be authentically you—the inner, confident you that you’d love to show off to the world. Show off your personality. Let your props, your outfits, and your poses reflect you. Your partner will love that spark of recognition as they look at the album you’ve created for them—or you’ll fall in love with yourself as you see that inner light that you hide all too often.
Spots are filling up fast for pre-Valentine’s sessions, and I don’t want you to miss out! Contact me as soon as possible to get started setting up your incredible boudoir shoot.
