Everything You Need To Know About Boudoir Photography

Whether you are looking for a great idea for your bridal shot or you just wish to get your very own classic pin up girl photo, boudoir photography is the perfect option for you. Yet if you don’t prepare ahead of time for your boudoir shoot, you might end up with the worst photo shoot ever. In order to not make your expectations fail you, we have a few useful tips in this article for you to make sure that you will get the best boudoir shots.

The most important thing that you need to consider in your boudoir shoot is choosing the right photographer. It is important to get the right photographer for your boudoir shot because if you choose a photographer that you feel uncomfortable to work with, you might end up getting the worst shots. Getting boudoir photographers that you don’t trust for your shoot might also cause you to make awkward facial expressions that you will regret in the later part. This is why before you start the actual photo shoot, you need to have a small chat with your photographer over coffee or snacks so you can also exchange ideas about your aesthetic.

The location is also very important because as much as possible, it has to fit perfectly with the aesthetic that you wish to achieve. Boudoir shots are usually done in bedrooms with fancy furniture that goes well with the theme of your shoot. A room of wooden furniture and earthy tones is perfect for a classic peg. For modern like feel, you can stick with minimalistic hues and shades of black and white. However, if you want something edgy and sultry, you can go for a room with velvet red theme or royal blue. However, there are also gorgeous locations aside from a bedroom because boudoir shots also look amazing in a hallway of marble arches or a terrace.

It is also important to look unto your outfit and how to play with it as you pose. The goal in every boudoir shot is to highlight the art in a woman’s body. However, as much as you can, you have to draw the line between nudity as an art and explicit content so you really have to be careful with your pose and your outfit. Most models who do boudoir shoots wear lingerie so if you want to stay as classy as possible in a sexy lingerie, you have to pay attention to the position of your hand.

As you strike a pose, you can play with your hair as you slightly open your lips but you should never put your finger in your mouth if you don’t want to portray the wrong image. You can also use props like a mask that matches your lingerie or a stem of rose depending on your creativity. The hair and makeup should also be as natural looking as possible. However, you can always play with your lips and try on various shades of red and nude colors.
