What Is a Boudoir Session?

A boudoir photography session is a unique style of photography. During a boudoir session, you’ll pose in lingerie to get gorgeous pictures that will help you see just how beautiful you really are. During your boudoir shoot, you will:

  • Pose in gorgeous lingerie
  • Get tasteful pictures where nudity is implied, rather than explicit
  • Be able to explore your unique beauty and feel better about yourself than you ever dreamed possible
  • Come out with a series of beautiful, sexy images that you’ll be able to share with that special someone in your life

Boudoir shoots are often used to create albums and prints for that special someone in your life: an intimate image that can be cherished for years to come. That doesn’t mean that you have to have someone special in your life to have a stunning boudoir shoot! Often, women come to me to book boudoir shoots just for them: the perfect opportunity for them to look and feel their sexy best.

Why Have a Boudoir Session?

There are several reasons why women opt for boudoir sessions. Have you ever considered:

Putting together a sexy gift for a loved one before an enforced separation, whether a military deployment, a work trip, or another temporary relocation?

Reaffirming your bond and connection with your partner in a way that can help spice up your relationship in the bedroom and out of it?

Providing yourself with a pampering experience like no other: one that will help you feel more confident and sexy long after the session is over?

Feeling better about yourself than you ever imagined possible, with the pictures to prove it?

If any of these ring true, then a boudoir session is the perfect opportunity for you! Book now to set the schedule for your boudoir session.

What Should I Expect from My Boudoir Session?

Believe it or not, we’re just as excited about your boudoir session as you are! We want to capture you at your absolute best, making you feel beautiful and sexy in a way that you have never been before. Our 100% female staff is there to make you feel relaxed, comfortable, and ready to dive in with your sexy photo shoot.

During your shoot, poses will typically be suggestive rather than explicit. We want to help you explore your sensuality and look your best, suggesting without displaying too much. Boudoir photography produces images that subtly promise more, rather than images that display it all. You’ll be tastefully covered throughout most of your session as you tastefully display your assets.

This is a stress-free time that’s all about you. We’ll provide a warm, welcome environment where you will be pampered and taken care of. During this process, you’ll be able to relax, smile, and enjoy everything going on around you—all without having to think about anything but the moment you’re in.

You’ll have your hair and makeup done for you, slip into the wardrobe you’ve carefully chosen just for your shoot, and then go through a series of poses that will help you look and feel amazing. I’ll capture it all on film so that you’ll be able to look back on these images for the rest of your life!

The Important Parts of Your Boudoir Shoot

There are several important aspects that go into planning your boudoir shoot. All the little details matter and our experienced staff is dedicated to ensuring that all of those key details are taken into consideration throughout your shoot.

How to Choose the Style of Your Session

Your boudoir session is as unique as you are. We want to be sure that your session is tailored to your needs, including the style of your pictures. These may include:

  • High-key, which flatters the appearance of your skin
  • Low-key, with a grainy, black and white or film noir style
  • Pin-up style

Your boudoir session is about you, and that starts with the style you’ve chosen for your pictures. Your shoot can encompass a wide range of styles, moods, and feelings—it’s all up to you! We’ll connect before your session to let you take a look at the different photography styles I have available and discuss your specific desires for the session.

Unveil Your Inner Goddess

If you’ve never done a boudoir shoot before, the wardrobe might be one of the most difficult elements to decide on! Thankfully, we’re here to help. We want to help you choose flattering styles that will emphasize your assets and minimize anything that you perceive as a fault, allowing you to create an album that you’ll fall in love with.

Our wardrobe closet at the studio has plenty of options to choose from—and it’s not just lingerie. There are times when wearing a sweater, opting for a men’s white shirt, or even choosing the right shoes can make a big difference in how sexy you look and feel. Black or nude heels can provide a number of advantages to your shoot, so make sure you bring a pair along.

Want to wear your own lingerie? We’ll provide you with a lingerie guide that will help you choose the perfect wardrobe for your boudoir session. This guide has helped many women before you select lingerie that makes them feel sexy and comfortable at the same time, and that’s exactly what we want for you!

We’ll work with you before your session to make sure that you have plenty of lingerie options, whether you want to purchase your own or select from our closet. Your boudoir shoot is your time to shine, and we’re here to make sure you look your best.

During Your Session, We’ll Guide You Through Seductive Flow Posing

For many of our clients, posing is one of the most intimidating parts of the session. If you’re not quite sure how to make yourself look and feel sexy with a simple change of expression, don’t worry! We’re here to help.

During your session, I’ll get into the pose first to help you see exactly where you need to be. This technique, called mirroring, makes it easier for you to move into the poses you need for your session. We’ll try out a wide range of poses based on mood, expression, body language, and more. Our goal is to capture your vision for the session and make you feel your best!

Thanks to my extensive experience as a boudoir photographer, I have a good idea of the poses that work best with a variety of body types. Now, I want to share that experience with you to help you feel just as sexy as you look. If you’re not comfortable in a pose, just let me know! I’ll help you shift or try something new according to your needs. Remember, this day is all about you!

Preparing for Your Boudoir Session

In some ways, preparing for your session is just as important as the session itself! Not only do you want to be physically ready, you want to be sure that you’re mentally ready to come in and make this session your best photo shoot ever! Make sure you’re prepared and ready to go.

Make sure your face is free of makeup. Our talented makeup artists are going to do your makeup for you anyway. Come in with a clean slate!

Blow-dry your hair, but don’t style it. You shouldn’t use any hair styling products in your hair prior to your arrival. We’ll take care of all of the important details!

Don’t tan in the days prior to your appointment. You should avoid lying out in the sun for at least three days prior to your appointment to avoid tan lines. Don’t opt for a spray tan, either! There will be an additional charge for touching up orange skin or smoothing away tan lines in editing.

If you choose to wax, wax early. You should make your waxing appointment at least two days prior to your session so that there won’t be any redness left over by the time you come in for your shoot.

My Products

Of course, your session isn’t just about the pictures themselves. You want to know what you’ll be able to take with you when the session is over! Take a look at these great products:

Albums will allow you to show off all of your boudoir photos in a discrete way. Your album can be tucked away on the shelf, then brought out when you or your special someone want to peruse it. With an album, you can easily display and share all of your favorite images from your boudoir shoot.

Wall art allows you to display your gorgeous images all the time. This is a great addition to your bedroom or other private areas of the home! Wall art provides a larger canvas for your favorite images from the boudoir shoot, letting your significant other see all those great details.

Folio boxes, like albums, allow for a private display of your boudoir prints. These boxes can contain numerous different picture sizes, letting you choose the perfect size for each image—including larger images than you’ll often find in a traditional album. Folio boxes will also allow you to remove an image or two if you want to send them off with your sweetheart when they need to travel without sending the whole box along.

Novelty items give you the chance to put your favorite images from your boudoir shoot on a range of items for you or your significant other to enjoy. We offer an extensive collection of novelty item options, so you’ll be sure to find one that will appeal to you!

You’ve scheduled your session. Now, what should you expect from the rest of the process? How long will it take to get your images back? There are several things to keep in mind when it comes to your timeline.

You should leave around 2.5 hours for your session. This leaves plenty of time for you to try out all the different poses, wardrobe items, and expressions you want from your session.

Your images will be available for viewing within 10-14 days. This will give plenty of time for editing, including paying attention to all the details that you want smoothed out. If you’re in a rush, however, you can choose to pay a rush fee to have your images turned around within 1-2 days.

Getting your albums, wall art, and other items printed takes around 10-15 days. This depends on the specific item you want and how many prints you need.

VR is an instant gift. No waiting around; you can use VR on the spot! This is the cutting-edge virtual reality experience!

It’s time to give yourself and that special someone in your life a gift that you’ll cherish forever. When you set up a boudoir photography shoot, you’re not just looking at two and a half hours of pampering, relaxation, and fun. You’re creating a gorgeous album or wall of memories that you and your partner will love being able to share together. Don’t wait! Schedule your boudoir session today to start preparing for one of the most incredible sessions you’ll ever have.
