Summer is coming! Unlike Game of Thrones – is anybody else sad that it ended – we are going into the season of summer. I’m so excited for barbecues and pool days. I’m also so excited to get down to the studio and shoot some more photos with you babes! Today, I want to talk about what to wear for a summer boudoir shoot.
Summer is the perfect time for a boudoir shoot, because the light is out, we all feel great and the weather is lovely. It’s also the perfect season for clothes with less fabric which makes shopping for a boudoir shoot much easier! Here are my top choices for how to dress for a summer boudoir shoot.
Make your swimwear work double time by taking it to a boudoir shoot! I know that wearing a swimsuit on the beach can be stressful and a great way to feel confident in your skin is to do a photo shoot in one. Once you break the ice and strut your stuff, you won’t worry at all about taking your bikini to the beach.
Also, you probably have a bikini or two that you love, or maybe one that’s from another life that you won’t wear out anymore but still look fantastic in! Making life easier is always fun.
The summer is perfect for lovely prints and flowy accessories. A dramatic hat lends Old Hollywood elegance to a photo shoot. A beautiful flowy swimsuit cover-up will add gorgeous motion to a picture. Looking for a way to incorporate a prop into your shoot? Try a summer umbrella – I think they’re called parasols – for a decorative and fun touch.
Another way to go with your summer boudoir shoot is fully tropical. I’m thinking adorable tiki sunglasses, hula skirt and strategically placed lei. What a perfect gift for any newlywed with a beach honeymoon!
If there is ever a season to dress down to the skin, summer is the time. It’s not cold out and you look awesome! If you’re looking for a really sexy boudoir shoot for yourself or someone else, now is the time to get very daring at your boudoir shoot. Bonus – you don’t have to go shopping!
Let me know in the comments below! I love hearing about the different ways to make a boudoir shoot uniquely yours!
"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"
