Most people believe that a boudoir photo session means you will only need to bring lingerie or your bare skin, but the truth is you can include anything that makes you feel sexy. Boudoir photography is about giving you a place where you feel welcome, beautiful, accepted, able to be yourself, love yourself and above all have some fun. Here are a few things you already own that you might consider bringing for your session with us.
“Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world.” -Marilyn Monroe
Follow Marilyn’s advice and bring shoes that make you feel powerful, happy and playful. Cowboy boots, Roman sandals or those five inch stilettos could help define your personal style and set the mood for some really fun photos. If you’d like some thoughts on what he might like check out this blog by Beverly Feldman Shoes.
What do you own that makes you feel happy every time you touch it? How about an extra fluffy towel, satin sheet, fuzzy blanket or silky curtain? Bring it! We can drape you in whatever makes you feel most luxurious and capture an image of the way these fabrics make you feel.
- Something That Defines You
Whether you are participating in the photo session for yourself or your partner, creating an image that defines who you are is important. Be sure to bring that special something that makes you who you are. Do you play an instrument? What’s your favorite book? Do you dabble in photography or cook gourmet meals? Do you play a sport? You could even bring a favorite wine glass, coffee cup or tea set. If it’s important to you we will create a beautiful image with it.
To quote women’s sportswear fashion designer Michale Kors “I’ve always thought of accessories as the exclamation point of a woman’s outfit” and that is just as true for boudoir. Glasses, stockings, gloves, hats, scarves, jewelry, anything you would wear to accessorize your everyday wear works well to bump up the glamor in a boudoir photo.
Believe it or not, men love seeing you in their clothes. I’m sure we could spend hours debating the subject but trust us, bring his sports jersey, dress shirt, boxers, tie or anything else of his you love wearing and we’ll help create an image that he will go nuts for. And don’t forget to add a dash of his cologne to the item of clothing to make you feel all warm and cozy while wearing it.
Yes ladies, it’s that easy to find a few things to bring to your photo session that will make your images extra special. Let us know what you plan to bring ahead of time and we can design some shots around what’s most special to you. We’re looking forward to it!
