How to prepare for a boudoir photo shoot

I know boudoir can seem intimidating the first time around, but there’s no reason to worry. Here are some helpful tips on how to prepare for your boudoir photo shoot.

It is important to go into your shoot with a positive and confident mindset. Practice looking at yourself in front of the mirror in your lingerie outfits. Remind yourself that you are beautiful. Sure, you’ll be posing in front of me, a complete stranger, but I can assure that I’ll make you feel like we’ve known each other forever. I’ll be there to guide and encourage you every step of the way.

Boudoir will capture all of your amazing qualities, both inside and out. So, it is important that you prepare for your shoot both mentally and physically. Here are some skincare tips I wanted to share before you step in front of the camera. One of the most important things I tell my clients is to stay hydrated in any way you can! Give your skin some love by drinking plenty of water and exfoliating. Doing so will make your skin glowy and radiant the day of the shoot.
