There are many misconceptions surrounding boudoir photography so I thought its easier to address them before the first shoot. With fast-changing styles and different photographic visions, it can be hard to differentiate what is true and what is false.
Do i need to be skimpy or naked for a boudoir shoot?
Wear whatever makes you feel confident and comfortable. Doing a boudoir session isn’t about stripping down to your underwear and taking a pictures. That may be okay for some, but the ultimate goal is to help you see your true beauty. Your boudoir shoot is all about you and what you love. If lingerie or nudity isn’t your thing, then it doesn’t mean you cant do a boudoir session! Other great ideas for boudoir shoots are button-down shirts, open side dresses, boots, and millions more. Whatever makes you feel sexy and empowered size never comes into the equation!
The women in those photos are models, not real women.
Actually these are moms, wives, fiancés, single ladies, nurses, teachers, and other incredible, everyday women just like you! You’d be amazed at what a little makeup, coaching and confidence can do!
I really want to do a shoot, but I just want to make sure everything is right: I need to lose ten more pounds, I need a better tan, I need to be more confident.
So many women strive to be this “perfect image” we are not here to create the numbers we are here to help you bring out yourself. The truth is, like many to-do list items, you just have to say “Sod it” and just do it! Stop making excuses. There will never be a perfect time. Own your life and celebrate who you are right now. Be brave and fierce, and the rest will follow.
