Boudoir Ideas for First Timers – Missouri Boudoir Photo Studio

Gearing up for your first boudoir shoot and looking for pointers? An intimate photoshoot is a unique experience, which can make it tricky to come up with ideas of what you want the final product to look like.

Here are some of our top tips for first time boudoir clients.

1. Save on Boudoir Outfits

Once you've booked your session, your first thought is probably, "what should I wear for my boudoir photos?"

There are tons of options, which can make it overwhelming to choose. The main thing to keep in mind is that you want to feel good in what you're wearing.

If you're trying to push yourself outside your comfort zone, that might mean investing in some intricate lingerie or choosing to skip the outfit and drape yourself in our gorgeous sheets.

Or, if you're feeling nervous, go for a sweet boudoir look with a cardigan or robe.

Regardless of the direction you choose, don't break the bank buying clothes for your shoot. You can always browse our client closet for pieces to borrow!

2. Don't Worry About Posing

The greatest advantage to investing in professional boudoir photos is that you have an experienced photographer to guide you. Don't worry about posing—we'll tell you exactly what to do once you're in front of the camera.

Beauty in Boudoir photography studio includes several sets you can choose from. Creative posing on our boudoir furniture can make for fun and flirty images to include in your boudoir album.

That said, there are plenty of simpler options, too. You don't have to be super flexible or adventurous to take gorgeous boudoir photos.

Boudoir photography is all about the subject's beauty. Your photographer will know how to pose you to capture your best features, no matter your body type or abilities.

3. Pay Attention to the Details

The last tip we have for you is to prepare for your shoot! Getting a manicure and pedicure before your session can help you get ready mentally as well as making sure you look your best for your photos.

Just don't choose a flashy nail color that will steal the show!

As for hair and makeup, we have that covered, too. Our professional stylist will have you looking stunning for your shoot. Just let us know ahead of time if you have any sensitivities.

Now that you have a few boudoir ideas to consider, it's time to start prepping for your session. And if you haven't booked yet, make sure to get in touch and reserve your date!
