First of all, congrats on taking the leap and booking your boudoir photography session! It’s going to be fun, an amazing experience, and super empowering for you. Wardrobe is an essential part of your boudoir session, using proper wardrobe that is not only beautiful but that flatters your body is just one of the many ways we ensure your session is a success. It doesn’t have to be complicated.
I am a believer in stripping down and keeping it basic. Less is more. In fact, we really love doing our ‘implied nudes’ in the sheets and highly recommend you give it a try!
Most of our clients use our fantastic client wardrobe, and some opt to shop and bring their own hand selected pieces. Here is our cheat sheet for you to shop and know what to bring for your session. I hope it helps you! Feel free to reach out with questions any time so I can help you through this part of the process.
It’s important that we focus on what you are going to wear, in a way that the outfits don’t take away from YOU! When we focus too much on stand-out outfits and props, we lose focus on our goal, which is to EMPOWER YOU! With this in mind, I have created the following guide to help you select the best wardrobe for your upcoming boudoir session with us.
We want you: vulnerable, exposed, raw, and extremely beautiful. This doesn’t mean we want you to be uncomfortable or pushed outside your comfort zone, it means that we want YOU to be the focus of the image and not a flashy outfit or a distracting prop. It’s our job to empower you and provide you with a body positive experience. It’s about reconnecting you with you: your femininity, sensuality, your sexuality, and your womanhood. We want to leave you with timeless images that you and your loved ones will cherish for the rest of your lives.
With that said, wearing the WRONG pieces can actually ruin images, whether it’s because of a poor fit, bad color choice for your skin tone, a pattern that doesn’t photograph well, or is simply not the best style choice for your body type.
Why wear jewelry or heels when you normally don’t wear any? Why wear something lacy when you prefer straps? Why hide behind a costume or a prop? Let’s select stuff that will help your personality shine!
