What Not To Do In Your Next Boudoir Photography Session.
Don’t have a heavy meal just before the session, it may bloat you or leave you feeling fatigued and uninterested.
Don’t schedule the session when you have your periods. Same reason as above.
Don’t come to the session wearing tight clothes that will mark your body.
Don’t come to your session sunburnt
Don’t come in wearing your worst underwear. Boudoir sessions can be costly so splurge a little more and buy some beautiful, well-fitting lingerie. Get yourself measured properly at your local lingerie boutique. Lingerie that fits perfectly can change your body shape to help you look even better.
Don’t consider wearing a bra and undie combination if you don’t like your tummy. Try a baby doll or corset instead.
Don’t book in anything else after the shoot. Give yourself time to relax and feel pampered and have fun with the whole experience. You don’t want to feel stressed because you scheduled something else after.
Don’t expect to walk away with paying only a small amount for your boudoir photographs. They can be anywhere upward of $1000
Don’t get stuck on one inspirational image. Not every studio will have the same props or lightening or backgrounds etc to do a replica of the shots you had in mind. Keep an open mind and trust the photographer will come up with something similar and still amazing.
Don’t bring in clothes that you haven’t tried on for a while. Before coming in, please try on your clothes, look in the mirror and if it fits and looks great, bring it, if it doesn’t, leave it at home.
Don’t bring the same clothes but in different tones or colours. To make the shoot interesting bring different types of outfits. Don’t just bring 5 black corsets for example.
Don’t bring in stockings that have been worn or even taken out of the packaging.
Don’t leave tags and labels on pieces that show through sheer fabrics
Now the most important thing to remember in a Boudoir photography session is to have fun, love the experience and trust you’re in good hands
