5 Ways to Make Your Boudoir Session More Comfortable - Missouri Boudoir Photoshoot

If you’ve never done a boudoir photo session before, you may be pretty nervous about trying it out. Boudoir can be incredibly confidence-boosting and empowering, but the thought of getting vulnerable and looking sexy in front of a photographer can also be a little intimidating.

Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to feel more comfortable throughout your session, and as your photographer, my goal is to help you feel like your most authentic and beautiful self!

The “right” boudoir photographer will depend entirely on what you’re looking for and how you feel around that person.

Your boudoir photographer will be sure to give you the full model treatment, so why not add a little more self-care to your preparations for your boudoir session?

Pick outfits that make you feel amazing

What you wear to your boudoir session is entirely up to you. Some women feel gorgeous in lingerie, while others prefer the comfortable, baggy sweater look. The important thing is to select outfits that make you feel gorgeous and like you can conquer the world! Your photography will only ask you to undress to your comfort level, so whatever makes you feel sexy is the right choice for your boudoir session.
