Boudoir photos are fun to take and empowering to have. However, it doesn’t always feel that way in the moment. Feeling comfortable in front of someone you don’t know very well especially someone with a camera can feel hard.
At Bmore Boudoir we want you to walk away from your shoot feeling beautiful, sexy, and confident! Here are our top tips and tricks to feel completely at ease at all moments in your boudoir shoot.
This one is so important! Pick someone you know you’re going to be comfortable with. Maybe someone who worked with you for your engagement or wedding photos or is just an all-around awesome person who would love to help you get your perfect boudoir shot!
Remind yourself who is going to see this! Pose in an old t-shirt that smells like them or give your shoot a sporty spin with a baseball cap. Pull up their photo on your phone and imagine them in the room with you. It seems corny but it totally works!
When you’re bringing something to life that you’ve imagined, it give you something to focus on other than how uncomfortable you feel at the beginning! Before your shoot, consider what you want the end result to look like. That way you’re working toward something, and you can imagine how adorable the end product is going to look.
I know, easier said than done right? But hi, we’re never gonna look like the girls in the magazines. The girls in the magazines don’t even look like the girls in the magazine! Take a breath. This is your body, and it’s beautiful and it’s doing everything it can to keep you alive. Be nice to it!
When in doubt bring a friend! If you feel like you definitely won’t be comfy with a stranger, no matter who it is, bring a friend for moral support After all, your bestie will be honest with you about how great you look!
Okay so it’s weird. Life gets weird, and messy, and crazy. Lean into it! Laugh about how strange life is sometimes and how you feel a little uncomfy in the moment. Laughing pictures are great pictures, and once you start laughing you feel better!
“Everything you’ve ever wanted is on the other side of fear.”
Don’t let the fear of being uncomfortable hold you back from getting the photographs you’ve dreamed of. You got this girl!
"Anne is an incredibly talented photographer, and her passion for capturing beautiful memories really shines through during her boudoir sessions. She really takes that time to make sure you're comfortable, and I honestly felt so glamorous and confident. This photo shoot was such an empowering thing to do! (and honestly...it was really fun to get all dolled up and pretend to be a supermodel for the day!) I highly recommend Anne and Bmore Boudoir."
"Working with Anne was absolutely amazing! Anne is very knowledgeable and gave wonderful advice. Even though Anne was a lot of fun and very laid back, she ensured she exuded professionalism always. I was so nervous to do a boudoir shoot and was lacking some serious confidence. Anne has a special way with her that made me feel not only comfortable, but confident and sexy! The pictures were beautiful and very tasteful. I cannot wait to work with Anne again!"
"Working with you was incredible!! You were so laid back, made me feel comfortable and beautiful in my skin. I didn't feel like I needed to cover up or hide at all. Your direction and energy was exactly what I needed to have a successful shoot. I chose YOU to do the session because I felt like you would put me at ease and we'd just have FUN during the shoot, and I was right ;) Having finished and leaving that day I felt empowered and absolutely gorgeous, like I could take on anything life threw at me haha! I was super excited to get the photos back and share them with my hunny, and he LOVED them! No complaints there <3"
