Top 5 tips for a sensual and sophisticated boudoir sessions | Las Vegas Boudoir Photographer
When planning for a Boudoir Photo Session it is really important to be well prepared. The Photoshoots are often a step outside one’s comfort zone so if all ‘controllable’ aspects are ready, there is more time to relax and enjoy the session. Here are my 5 tips:
Plan your outfits in advance
Your choice of outfits is a really important component of the boudoir photoshoot. You definitely want to avoid being rushed, at the last minute, thinking about what to wear.
Choose what makes you feel sexy
Pick outfits that make you feel sensual and in love with yourself. If you don’t currently have any, it is a good time to go shopping and try on new clothes. You don’t have to be limited to lingerie! A teddy, a semi transparent dress or an awesome pair of shoes are just as important as the underwear.
Accessorize your shoot
Choose some details to make it look special, for example a statement piece necklace can be the sophisticated focus of a photo. Do you have any jewelry that is meaningful to you? Are you a fan of vintage style? If you are, pick some long gloves and a large hat. Is bohemian your gem? Style yourself with turquoise jewelry, silver and some soft lace for instance.
Practice your expression
Often the face is the hardest part to pose. Practice a little in front of the mirror to see which expression best suits the look you desire. The face is the center of the attention of a sophisticated portrait. Not all images need to include your beautiful face. We can give some rest to your face by posing you facing away from the camera or crop the image as an “anonymous shot”. With a photoshoot of at least two to three hours, you will have plenty of time to loosen up and perfect your expression.
You may have an actress, singer, VIP that you like. Chances are they have had many professional photos taken and you could find inspiration in them. As a photographer I love seeing a collection of inspirational images from my clients, or mood boards, in order to better personalise the photoshoot session.
