Plan your outfits well in advance

If you’re planning to wear some items you already have, be sure to try everything on before your session, especially if it’s something you haven’t worn in a few years. And whether everything fits or not, a boudoir session is a great excuse to go shopping! Pick out several looks that make you feel sexy and bring them to your shoot. The more options you have, the better! Try on your jewelry for each outfit as well. You especially want to make sure the necklace falls nicely in place. 

ways to prepare for your boudoir session - keep hydrated

Be sure to stay hydrated

To make sure you look your absolute best in your images, drink plenty of water in the days before and on the day of your session. You should also try to avoid consuming alcohol or salty foods, which can have a negative impact on your complexion. You want your skin looking healthy and fresh! I recommend eating protein the morning of your session to stay fueled for the day without the bloat. 

Refresh your look

If you regularly dye your hair, consider getting a touchup the week before your boudoir session to make sure your locks look luscious. A boudoir shoot is also the perfect excuse to do a little self-pampering: get a fresh manicure and pedicure and even a wax. These may seem like small details, but they’ll really pop in your images. And if you choose to tan, do so naturally and in the nude to avoid unsightly tan lines or get a professional tanning job. Don’t use any sprays, gels, or lotions that may take away from your natural beauty! 

Don’t wear tight clothes to your session

Not sure what to wear for your boudoir session? When choosing an outfit to wear to your session, pick something casual, comfortable, and, most importantly, loose. Tight clothing can leave indentations and lines on your skin that will stand out in photos, so avoid bras, socks, belts, or especially tight jeans or tops. Go for something loose and comfortable, like sweats or a hoodie, that won’t leave any marks on your skin. Choose a bottom down or something loose to pull over your head to protect the hairdo! 

Bring plenty of extras

You’ve invested time and money in looking and feeling gorgeous at your boudoir session. The last thing you want is a rip in your lacy lingerie or a pair of torn fishnets to ruin your day. Make sure you have backup pieces, just in case the worst happens, and save yourself from stressing about a run in your tights. I will also help you narrow down your selection to our top picks that I know will compliment your body and photograph well.
