Planning your boudoir outfits is an exciting experience. There's nothing like it, which might mean you have a few questions, like whether or not you can wear jewelry in boudoir photos.
Every boudoir shoot is unique, so in this post, we'll share some tips to help you decide if jewelry should be part of your boudoir look.
When to Wear Jewelry in Boudoir Photos
Thoughtfully chosen jewelry can elevate your boudoir photos and bring something special to your shoot. Here are some examples of when you should wear jewelry in your boudoir photos.
1. Sentimental Pieces
Meaningful jewelry is a perfect way to add a personal touch to your photos. One of the most popular ways to include sentimental jewelry is wearing your engagement ring for your bridal boudoir shoot.
However, any jewelry that holds special meaning to you can be a great addition to your boudoir look, even if you're having the photos taken just for you. Maybe you have pieces you received as gifts or purchased for a special occasion that you would like to wear for your session.
2. Themed Shoots
Themed boudoir shoots are super fun, and adding some jewelry can help tie in elements of the theme you want to portray.
For example, a string of pearls can look great in a vintage Hollywood-style boudoir shoot.
Or, if you want to go for a full glam look, you could wear a stunning statement necklace or earrings. The options are limitless!
Search for inspiration for your theme online or on the Beauty in Boudoir blog for more ideas on pieces you could include in your themed shoot.
Tips for Wearing Jewelry in Your Boudoir Photos
One thing that’s important to remember when deciding whether to wear jewelry in your boudoir photos is that you should always be the star of the shoot. In most cases, you'll want to choose subtle pieces that don't take focus away from yourself.
Also bear in mind that some types of jewelry can be tricky to incorporate into a boudoir shoot. Long earrings and necklaces may not work with every pose.
