What type of lingerie should I buy for my boudoir photography session?
This is a pretty subjective decision. Pick your preferred color first! Make sure anything you purchase is a comfortable fit for you—not too tight or too baggy. Try high waists, corsets, or a gown if you have parts you want to conceal, like your stomach! Bring a button down shirt to ease into the session Find a bra that is supportive and matching. There are countless alternatives. Enjoy your shopping!
Does my age or size matter for a boudoir photography session?
I’ve taken pictures of people of all sizes, shapes, ages, and ethnicities—many of them well into their 70s! The only rule regarding age is that you must be at least 18 years old. What I can guarantee is that I will produce photos that showcase your personality and complement YOU. I firmly believe that every woman is stunning, and it is my duty to demonstrate this to you. Look through my gallery to discover a variety of women featured in some of my most shareable boudoir photography.
Is being stressed normal? How can I calm myself down?
Absolutely! Almost everyone who decides to participate in this type of production feels anxious. My goal is to make your session as safe and relaxing as possible.. Let’s play your favorite songs from your playlist and jam out!
Will my photos be posted online?
Not unless you approve of it! Every client whose photographs I post on my blog has given me formal consent to do so. It’s totally fine if you don’t want any of your photos shared; just let me know.
Can I bring my partner or a friend with me?
Since an “audience” can occasionally make you feel more self-conscious and detract from the process, I generally prefer to work one-on-one with my clients. It’s important for me that you feel at ease and completely present during the shoot in order to produce stunning photos that you’ll always treasure. If you feel the need to bring someone along for moral support during boudoir photography, they are welcome to watch the makeup and hair portion of your session before leaving to go out to lunch or shop while we do the photo shoot. You should only invite your biggest supporter; if they aren’t thrilled with you, tell them to stay at home.
Will my blemishes and stretchmarks be hidden in boudoir photography?
Generally speaking, yes. Retouching includes the elimination of cellulite, stretch marks, cellulite scarring, and acne in your boudoir photography. I can also add small tuck-ins upon request if you’d want me to soften the visible line in your silhouette. I want your photographs to reflect you at your finest, so I won’t significantly alter your body type or facial features. We can use postures and lighting to draw attention to your best attributes if there is something you are self-conscious about.
How about my hair and makeup? Do I do those things myself?
I highly recommend my professional team. I’ve been dealing with them for years, and not only is their work superb, but it also significantly improves the quality of your photographs. Even a “no-makeup” look is best accomplished by an expert! If you choose to schedule an appointment with them, they will meet with you to discuss the look you want to achieve before the shoot day or will provide advice if you are unsure of what to ask.
