How to prepare for your boudoir photography shoot?

Having a boudoir photography shoot isn’t something that most of us do very often, so you’ll want to look and feel good on the day of your shoot, especially if you’re planning to give your exquisite boudoir images to your partner as a gift.

Here are some simple ideas for you to think about  to help you prepare and get the most out of your boudoir photography experience:

  • Do plan your shoot ahead, if you need your boudoir images, albums or canvases by a specific date we would normally suggest that you have your shoot about a month before the date, so that we can guarantee to have your products ready for you.
  • Wax or shave several days before your shoot, to avoid skin irritation or redness.
  • As always drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration and looking tired.
  • Be careful about using fake tans, some look fabulous.  If you think you are going to go naked for some of the shots (most people do), then do try to avoid tan lines.
  • Try to avoid wearing tight clothes when you arrive (it’s amazing how tight jeans mark the skin).
  • Make sure your lingerie is the correct size for you, an ill fitting bra really doesn’t show you at your best! . Try your lingerie on before you come in.
  • If you are coming in for one of our shorter boudoir photography sessions, we ask that you come in wearing your normal day make up. Keep your make up simple and please avoid frosted eyeshadows.
  • If you are coming in for one of our longer boudoir shoots we will be doing a full makeover for you, so come au natural and we can then work our magic on you.
  • We do not offer hair makeovers, so please come with your hair as you would like it.  Ladies with longer hair always look more natural with their hair down (the bed-head look!) rather than piled on top which can be awkward with some of our poses.
  • Don’t forget to use body moisturiser if you have dry skin.
  • Chaps, if you don’t want to go for the five o’clock shadow look, it’s always best to make sure you’ve had a good shave.
