I’m back again this week with some more tips and tricks for how to really shine at your boudoir shoot. I firmly believe that boudoir should be something for women to enjoy and something that really expresses who you are!
It’s no fun to get all dressed up and then up feeling like the photos you get back aren’t, you know, you. I want the opposite of that! I want your boudoir photo shoot to show the most you you can be.
Wear what makes you comfortable, and get a little fancy with it if you want! Love Harry Potter? Bring a novel to pose with. Huge sports fan? Bring your jersey (or your significant others!). Our clothes express so much of who we are, and just because boudoir has a little bit less clothing doesn’t mean it can’t be chock-full of your style!
Movement is the key to creating personality in all portrait photography and boudoir is no different. I saw an Instagram post the other day where the girl had all her hair in the air, and it looked so fantastic! Do you have a signature selfie pose? Break it out! A gesture all your friends know is oh so you? Tell me about it, and we’ll get it on film (well digital, but you know what I mean).
Audrey Hepburn said, “ I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls.” I personally love to laugh! I think it’s so helpful to get a comfortable, and after all, we’re here to have a good time right? Laugh out loud; I promise the photos will come out fantastic.
Having a camera lens pointed at you can be a little bit scary. I get it! I do everything I can to make you feel comfy. When your photos come back, I promise that you will feel like the most beautiful, empowered version of yourself. Your personality will shine through, simply because these are gorgeous photos of your gorgeous self!
"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"
