10 Ways to Get the Best Boudoir Photos - St. Louis Premier Boudoir Photographer, Missouri
Every woman wants to feel beautiful, sexy, and stunning. A professional boudoir photo session can give you that feeling, boosting your confidence and letting you feel like a model for a day. Check out these 10 ways you can plan for the perfect boudoir photos to show off your beautiful self.
Find the right photographer.
More than any other type of photo session, a boudoir shoot requires you to choose a photographer you can trust. If you don’t feel comfortable with the person taking your photos, your images will show it. You don’t want to look stiff and awkward, so choose a photographer who can help you relax and feel as beautiful as you are. When you choose your photographer, make sure that they have experience shooting boudoir and that they are not a newbie.
Buy something new.
What better way to feel sexy than to dress up in new lingerie? Check out your favorite boutique for some sexy pieces or even go to Victoria’s Secret. With the lower prices, you can pick up more outfits and have more options for your session.
When you book with Beauty In Boudoir, we will send over a list of recommended lingerie companies that we use and love! We have you covered.
Play some mood music.
Music at your boudoir session will make you feel more comfortable and confident. Take some time to create a playlist of your favorite songs—songs that make you feel strong, sexy, and powerful. At Beauty In Boudoir, we play your favorite station to make sure you feel your sexiest!
Change your look.
A boudoir shoot is a great time to try something new—a bold makeup look or a wild hairstyle. There’s no one definition of sexy, so feel free to mix things up and embrace your personal beauty.
It may feel ridiculous, but don’t be afraid to try out some poses before your shoot. Look through your favorite fashion magazines and try to imitate the models. Try arching your back and leaning forward. And above all, leave a little to the imagination. We pose and direct you throughout the process to ensure you love your images.
Embrace the nerves.
It’s totally normal and okay to be nervous. Feeling nervous means you’re outside of your comfort zone, which is awesome! And don’t worry about what the photographer sees when they look at you—their job is to make you look gorgeous. They want to capture the best of you, and that’s exactly what they see.
Don’t worry about weight.
You don’t have to lose a few pounds to book a boudoir shoot. Come to your session as you are and let the photographer—and your wardrobe—make you look stunning. Your photographer can give you tips on dressing to suit your body type and will pose you in ways that highlight your beauty.
Be open to possibility.
A boudoir session requires you to do things you don’t normally do and strike poses you may have never even considered. Trust your photographer’s experience and be open to any ideas they have for your session. After all, their job is to make you feel gorgeous.
Drink lots of water and avoid overeating.
If you want to look your best and be comfortable, it’s important to stay hydrated and avoid any foods or drinks that could make you bloat. You also don’t want to eat a big meal before your boudoir session. If you feel overly full, you won’t feel sexy.
Above all, have fun with your boudoir session. Relax and let your photographer help you show off your sexy, stunning self! Are you thinking about a boudoir photoshoot but haven't committed yet?
