Things to Avoid at your Boudoir Shoot

The pre-boudoir panic: We’ve all been there.

You’re excited and you’ve booked the shoot…but then you put down the phone you have a million questions. WHAT NEXT!?

Confidence is your first key to success. A confident woman is an attractive woman, and while you might feel like you’re going to mess it up, here’s what you can do to rock your shoot and look like the gorgeous Fearless Warrior Goddess you are.

1. Choose your outfits carefully

Flowy lingerie, like babydoll negligees, may seem gorgeous on the clothes hanger, but when it comes to your photoshoot you should stay as far away from them as possible. Not only can these be very unflattering, they’re much harder for your photographer (me) to retouch. If you accidentally bring one, don’t worry, I’ll just be sure to tie it back.

2. Don’t survive off lettuce and air

One of the biggest mistakes that women make when they book a boudoir photoshoot is to starve themselves as they think the photos will turn out better. Honey, the only thing you need to make work is your bad-ass! You might not think it, but posing is a lot of effort and you’ll be burning calories the whole shoot. Believe me, the last thing you want is to have to end early because you are dying of starvation.

3. Don’t hit the gym to punish yourself

You don’t need to start working out five times a day. The real beauty of boudoir is up to the photographer and heavily depends on lighting, angles, and poses. That’s why it’s an art form. Take note; I can make you look better NOW than you would after 6 months in the gym.

Whatever you choose to bring to your photoshoot, remember that boudoir is as much about highlighting your inner beauty as it is your outer. Follow these three rules and you’ll be well on your way to making the absolute most of your photoshoot. For any further questions, feel free to reach out to me at
