I wanted to take a pause to share my thoughts on boudoir photoshoot wardrobe with you. I get a ton of inquiries from perspective clients looking at a variety of different boudoir photographers to book with, and while I think that is extremely important to do your research and find a photographer that speaks to your artistic vision, you also need to pay attention to which details will mean the most to your boudoir photography experience.
Wardrobe is one of those details. I have always struggled with how many outfits to allow during my sessions because I want to be focusing on YOU and not your "costume". Ideally I would like to suggest you just show up with a bra and panty and a loose tank from the back of your closet - or whatever you have on for that matter! We can make sexy photos with just you and some light. That being said, I recognize it is part of the fun of boudoir to wear something that makes your feel fucking sexy and confident. And so, while picking out your boudoir photography wardrobe, please keep in mind these three things:
1. Think about what you already have the makes you feel incredibly sexy. Go through your closet and drawers and pull pieces that you know you're going to feel comfortable being sexy in.
2. If you venture out to shop for something new and sexy - don't get stuck looking at lingerie you think you are supposed to wear for a boudoir photoshoot - think about what flatters your incredible body. The last thing you want to do is show up with a corset or stockings that you don't love but thought you had to wear for a boudoir shoot.
3. Less is more. You absolutely don't have to bring 3 outfits just because you can. I can do a 2 hour session with just one outfit and still create an incredible collection of images for you to choose from.
If you're having trouble choosing outfits - bring a bunch and I am more than happy to look at them with you and determine which looks work best for our purposes. Your package will include 1-5+ outfits, but I am always flexible with more or less - there are no absolutes.
