How to Prepare for a Boudoir Photo Shoot February 10 2015

How To Prepare for a Boudoir Photo Shoot

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and now is the perfect time for a boudoir photoshoot. Whether you are giving the photos as a gift, or just getting some badass pictures of yourself, a photoshoot is an empowering, fun experience. What makes the experience even better is being prepared! Check out some of our best tips on how to prepare for a boudoir photoshoot.

Boudoir is a style of photography that has been around for ages. The photoshoot usually takes place in a studio or bedroom and the model (that’s you!) dresses up in lingerie with excellent hair and makeup to boot. If you are thinking about giving it a try, here are some tips on how to prepare for a boudoir photo shoot!

  1. Pick the right photographer.

You want your photos to look natural and sexy, which is why choosing the right photog is key. You want someone who you feel comfortable around and that will give you good direction. Not all of us are natural models, so having someone who can direct you will make your shots come out better.

  1. Don’t spend too much of your budget on lingerie.

Definitely pick out some sexy pieces, but don’t get too crazy. You may want to have a few looks during the shoot, but be smart about it. Mix and match pieces and accessories. Reach out to your ladies and see if they have something you can borrow - that is the best deal of all ;) Oh, and don’t forget some sexy heels. Black is a good way to go so you can use with each look.

  1. Have someone do your hair and makeup.

This will really make a huge different during the boudoir photoshoot. Firstly, it will save a lot of time during the photo editing process. If your skin and hair is on point, the photographer will have less editing to do so you will get more bang for your buck. Secondly, looking sexy will make you feel confident during the shoot. You can get your makeup done for free at Mac and Benefit if you purchase $50 dollars worth of product. You could call your hair salon as many hairdressers can also do makeup application.


  1. How to Prepare for a Boudoir Photo Shoot Make sure you drink a lot of water the week before your shoot. This will make your skin look amazing and well, water is good for you duh!
     Drink lots of water and get rest.
  1. Don’t forget hands and feet!

Make sure to give your hands and feet some love. A cute mani pedi will really tie the look together.

  1. Practice your poses.

It may feel silly, but spend at least an hour practicing your poses and looks in the mirror. You don’t want to show up to your shoot unprepared and photographers aren’t magicians so you have to do your part to get those steamy shots. Know your angles show you can take flattering pics. You can also do a quick Google or Pinterest search on boudoir photoshoots to get ideas and inspiration.

  1. Presentation!

Now you have your photos, but how do you present them? Get creative! You could put them on a disc, make a video out of them or have them printed onto a coffee table-like book. You could also just have nice prints made and put them in a fancy envelope or folder. If you really wanna get next level, make a calendar so your sexiness can be enjoyed all year long.
