What To Bring
To Your Photoshoot

LET'S START PLANNING YOUR SESSION TOGETHER

First off, consider your body "SHAPE"

As a boudoir photographer, the question we get asked most often is, “What should I wear to my Boudoir shoot?”  

So I created this Ultimate Guide of WHAT TO WEAR for your boudoir photoshoot! Let’s go through it together.

 

Let's start!

1. Classic Black Separates

You really can’t go wrong in a classic black and undies set. Go vintage with lace or modern with polka dots. Try a bralette for a more romantic feel, or a push up for something more seductive! A bonus tip? Cheeky and boyshorts give you a little booty lift.

2. Body Suits

Want to feel like a queen? Find a bodysuit! You may call them onesies or one pieces, but whatever the name they look amazing! Try sleeves for a different vibes and pair it with some sparkly earrings. I love deep jewel tone silk bodysuits the best, but a black cotton one comes in a close second.

3. Floral Robe

Throw it over your bra and panties set for a totally different look or wear it alone. You really can’t go wrong with the thigh-length robe. Play with colors and textures.

4. The Shirt

This can be from your partner’s closet or from your own. If you’re going to be gifting some of these images, a little something of theirs will definitely be a nice surprise. Dress shirt, slouchy T, or even a comfy cardingan or sweater.

5. Shoes

Sky-high heels are either your best friend or your worst nightmare! Bring them anyway! I will not make you walk around in them, I promise. That being said they will do wonders for your legs and booty. A little lift and length go a long way. Wear nude heels and you will add even a few inches to your legs. Black heels are a nice classic touch.

6. Themed Wear

Bridal veil (of which we will provide in the studio)? Partner’s occupation tribute? Nerdy T-shirt and undies combo? Play-it up! Make this something that truly describes you even if it is a sexy black mask, you have hidden away in your closet that you never pull out. Make it about what makes you feel good!

7. Accessories

Sparkly necklaces, earrings, pearls, thigh highs and garter belts can be worn to amp up any outfit. I have a few accessories at the studio, but I love seeing all of the different items that our clients bring!

8. Nothing

White sheet sets do not have to be scary, or weird. We can end your session with an option of doing a few white sheet portraits (let us know ahead of time) and you can be as covered or opened as you’d like. When you’re trying to find the right outfit and nothign comes to mind try not having one at all!

What To leave at Home

  1.  Corsets IF too tight;
  2. Baby-dolls (will kill your curves);
  3.  Thongs (you want to have panties that shape your bottom and follow your curve line!).
  4. Bright colours (bright yellow, flash green, bright red…). Choose pastel colours, they will be just perfect!
  5. Stockings colour that matches and blends to your skin tone.
  6. Lots of straps;
  7. Too big or too small bras;
  8. Body stockings;
  9. FAKE TAN!!!

Yoga Class

Practice some Yoga to stretch your back and neck muscles​

Stretching the back before the photoshoot helps to achieve great photos but mostly importantly, helps to avoid back pain related to our photo session.

In this at-home workout, Jen will show you stretches for back pain. Incredibly relaxing and stress-melting, this yoga for flexibility will be your favorite video yet. Feel some back pain relief after following along to this stretch routine.

What do other women say about their Boudoir Sessions?

With my love for boudoir, I could go on for hours about why every woman should book a session. The best part is you don’t have to just take my word for it. Check out some of these amazing testimonials and live videos from clients who’ve had the experience!

Boudoir style photography was something I've always wanted to do and I finally acted upon that wish and booked in a session. It started with a phone call to Alessio who was just so friendly, guinuine and answered all my questions. Next came all the informative and helpful guides leading up to the big day. I felt prepared on the day and the photoshoot itself was so much fun! Alessio was professional but friendly and made me feel completely comfortable. I recently picked up my album and was blown away by the quality and the photographs themselves. I couldn't be happier with the result!

Meg Rao "A Photoshoot with Alessio is just an amazing experience!"

Alessio was a complete professional the entire time in the warmest, kindest and most respectful way possible. We had fun, we laughed a lot and I felt relaxed and happy as a result. I felt beautiful during the shoot and the photos were absolutely stunning. I love them and I am so proud of them. I could not recommend this experience more, it was so good and I can't wait to do it again!
