9 Tips for Preparing for Your Boudoir Photoshoot


Are you preparing for your first boudoir photoshoot?! I couldn’t be more excited for you! You are about to embark on a journey of self-love and confidence. An experience that will give your life a new meaning and allow you to appreciate your own body. I know just how nerve-wracking your first boudoir experience can be. But it doesn’t have to be! Here are 9 tips for preparing for your boudoir photoshoot! 

Remember, you deserve to feel worthy, loved, and confident!

Finding The Perfect Outfit

Choose an outfit that makes you feel confident and comfortable. There are so many beautiful options when it comes to deciding on that perfect boudoir outfit. Whether it’s a favorite lingerie set, a cozy sweater, or a silk robe, wear what makes you feel good. I’ve curated a list of my favorite shops to help make choosing that perfect outfit a little easier. Remember, to shop your closet first. Is there a go to tank or off the shoulder sweater that makes you feel sexy? Consider that before buying new.

Rest up!

Get plenty of rest the night before. Being well-rested will help you feel refreshed and energized for your photoshoot. From the poses to the professional glam, to the final reveal, your day is going to be jam-packed with fun and empowering energy. Bring your best, most-rested energy to this exciting and empowering experience. 

Self-Care & Self-Love

Treat this entire experience as a moment for yourself. Whether that looks like taking an extra moment to exfoliate, giving your hair a deep wash, or treating yourself to a mani and pedi. Your boudoir photoshoot is so much more than just beautiful and powerful images of yourself. Self-care and self-love are such powerful practices that can help you live the fulfilled life you absolutely deserve. 

Hair & Makeup

Your boudoir investment with me includes a professional hair and makeup artist, but if you are preparing for your session with another talented boudoir photographer, don’t forget about your hair and makeup. This can make such a beautiful difference in not only your final images but also your confidence! Go with your usual hair and makeup look, or have some fun with the new style you’ve been wanting to try. This session is all about you. 

Don’t Forget Your Water

Staying hydrated is so important leading up to your shoot. It helps with your skin, mood and energy. Avoiding alcohol leading up to your shoot is also key.

Positive Affirmations

Repeat your positive affirmations to yourself! Remember, you are SO worthy of everything you set your mind to. You deserve a day to love yourself and honor your body. Your positive affirmations can be whatever YOU need for the extra encouragement and a confidence boost. Write them down, put them somewhere you can see them every single day, and repeat them whenever you can. 

Communication Is Key

While I am currently a New Jersey boudoir photographer, my background in mental health helps me to understand how vulnerable and sometimes emotional this experience can be. Throughout this process, my priority is to help you to feel seen, valued, and heard. Your safety and comfortability is my top priority. 

Enjoy The Experience

From the moment of your inquiry, I want you to fully enjoy this experience. I promise you will never regret investing in YOU! You are so worthy of this experience and deserve to feel beautiful, strong, and powerful. Have fun with the poses, enjoy the self-love and self-care, and be ready to feel like the hottest woman on the planet earth. 

Remember Your Why

Whether this boudoir photoshoot is for yourself, a partner, or a special occasion, this experience is a chance to celebrate and embrace your body in all its beauty. You never need a reason, or person, to celebrate you. You just need YOU! This life-changing experience is worth every single second of your time.
