Tips to Prepare for Your Boudoir Session
Trying to figure out what to wear at your boudoir session? We’ve got a few tips to help you out:
Choosing your Outfits
Lingerie is great, wear what makes you feel sexy. A boudoir session is all about revealing your sensual side, so if your putting underwear on and it makes you feel uncomfortable, try other options.
If your treating yourself with a new outfit there are many brands to try from Ann Summers have a wide range or if your after something a little more exotic then Agent Provocateur, Versace or La Perla might be more in keeping, check out trendspotter for more ideas.
You can opt for lingerie that flatters your favourite parts. If you’ve got a shapely bottom choose something that really shows of that feature. Maybe he loves you’re your curves and you want to show him the goods, too. Choose pieces that accentuates your best features you love most about yourself.
Consider what your partner likes, too. Maybe he loves you in his favourite colour, or that baby doll number you wore a couple years ago. If he’s into sports or a certain hobby, play into that, as well.
Of course you don’t have to wear anything that’s over revealing it if you don’t want to. Your partners button down shirt, or his sports top, oversized sweater, even a tight shirt and booty shorts are great alternatives. But it’s important to make sure you try on your outfits before your session to check out everything fits properly and looks great.
Make sure you think about jewellery, shoes, figure hugging slips, etc. Pack anything you need to get ready for your session. Your shoes matters, too. we suggest keeping it simple. opt for shoes that scream sexy sophistication. Heels also help by accentuating legs. For props, we suggest bringing personal items that are significant to you and your partner – sports gear, hats, gloves etc.

Pre-Session Beauty Prep
We suggest getting a mani/pedi a few days prior to your session. If you wax, don’t forget to pencil that into your schedule, as well. If you want to have a base tan for your photos, we recommend beginning to tan a few weeks prior to your session to avoid burning – and remember to think about your outfit and avoid any tan lines that will look bad in photos. We suggest staying away from spray tans. Don’t forget to get your eyebrows shaped before your session.
A few days before your session, lower your salt intake to avoid bloating and also eat a light breakfast the morning of. Drink a lot of water leading up to your session for beautiful, healthy skin and get a good night’s rest the night before. Shave and moisturise for beautiful legs. Wear a clear deodorant. Don’t wear tight clothing, bras, panties, socks, etc. the morning of your session or driving to your session. These will leave red marks on your skin and we want you looking your best.
The most important thing you can do is relax. We will make sure you look amazing in your photos, so don’t worry! If you’re uncomfortable, it will show, so just keep calm.
