Boudoir Tips

  1. Do research BEFORE your shoot. 
    • Save and bring with you some photos of poses you want to capture.
    • Create a Pinterest board specifically for your shoot (make it private if you don’t want others to see it.  Make sure to add me to your private board so I can see it too.
    • Check out my boards for ideas:
    • Browse through my Boudoir Portfolio and pin pictures directly from my site!
    • Check out my Boudoir Poses Page for even more examples.
  2. Sexy does not necessarily mean less/no clothes. Sexy is in the eye of the beholder. Here are some theme ideas:
    • Men’s dress shirt (white is my favorite) paired with panties, loose tie optional, fedora is a fun one. Heels or bare feet.
    • Boyfriend/husband’s favorite t-shirt with cute panties. Fun knee high socks add a cute element
    • Swimsuit in/by the pool20150530-Michelle_Jenner-006
    • White sheet, wrapped up in
    • Shawl/cover up loosely wrapped in
    • Bra/pantie set
    • corset and panties (stunning -highly recommend, particularly for curvier figures)
    • Sheer shirt, tank top or camisole with panties
    • vintage night gown or slip
    • sexy costume
    • topless with casual jeans (use arms to cover breasts or lay stomach down.)
    • apron, panties and heels (recommend “cooking” props: cookbook, bowl and whisk, cake/cookies on a plate, etc.)

  4. Accessory!!!!
    • Jewelry: Anything from chunky to elegant. If you’re going for a dramatic look, try rhinestone/costume jewelry, chandelier earrings, even a bracelet. Bring options and we can work with it. For an understated look, small earrings/studs and a simple necklace that has significance ads a really nice touch. You don’t have to wear jewelry, but often it’s lovely to add.
    • Shoes: Just as important as underwear! It’s amazing what a splendid pair of shoes can do for a boudoir shoot. I’m a huge fan of barefeet, but those sultry heels do amazing things for a sexy outfit.
    • Hosiery: Thigh highs, fishnets, and garters all great ways to add more touches to your look
    • Other: men’s hats, masquerade mask, men’s ties, fresh flowers/petals, vintage coca cola bottle(s), martini or other adult beverage in appropriate glass, hand fans, pillbox hats, feather boas (though I think these tend to be a bit over the top if not done correctly) big feathers, paper parasols, fruit (apples are great, add a lovely pop of color, but a bunch of grapes can look stunning, too.) Candy -big lollipops, cotton candy on a stick, licorice, etc.

  6. Night before prep:
    • DO NOT WEAR anything with elastic for 24 hours before the shoot.  It will leave marks that are hard to hid/cover up.  This means NO BRAS!  I know it may suck but you will look better!  you can wear panties as long as it is not tight.Please don’t starve yourself!  You look amazing as you are and will need lots of energy to get thru this.Your hour will FLY by. Be prepared and think about all the outfits you want to wear.20150426-Jessica_Scott-005
  7. Day of prep:
    • Get plenty of sleep. Your eyes will not look good on 3 hours of sleep.
    • Plan to get to location early to plan for traffic and get prepared.
    • Be ready to shoot when your hour starts.  You have an hour only.  If you are still getting ready during your hour, you will loose that shooting time.
