romantic gift ideas for women

Not only are boudoir and/or beauty sessions a romantic gift idea for women, they are truly unique. These type of sessions can be ultimately empowering and make any woman feel like a rockstar.

Let me tell you more… My Couture Boudoir® photo sessions are tasteful and classy. Very similar to magazine style fashion shoots. Your wife or girlfriend will come to the shoot and first be pampered with hair and makeup styling. A wardrobe consultation will take place and then she will be photographed by me (a female photographer). I will coach her on posing so no modeling experience needed.  I have a range of packages to choose from. Special add-ons can be accommodated such as chocolate covered strawberries and red roses or maybe a bottle of her favorite perfume to make her feel even more sexy for her shoot.

The shoot can be styled in lingerie or in beautiful dresses. (the client supplies their own wardrobe). If your wife/girlfriend is more on the shy side a beauty shoot might be just the thing to bring her out of her shell. Both styles of sessions are sexy and sensual while being tasteful.

Boudoir photo props top ten list

Here are the top ten items that will make your boudoir shoot a little more fun.

1. Flowers or rose petals. If you are really courageous you can do a final shot in the tub with nothing to cover you except flower petals. This shot also works great with bath bubbles.

2. Did you read Fifty Shades of Grey? Many of my clients have read this book and it definitely sparks creative juices. A lace mask, silk ribbon and a whip all can bring out your vixen for photos.

3. Any kind of prop that has to do with your man’s hobby. If he loves to watch sports his favorite team jersey can be used as a prop. Or if he is a huge football/basketball fan bring a football/basketball as a prop. If he loves to read the morning paper with a cup of coffee this can be cute for you to reenact.

4. Any kind of prop that has to do with your man’s business/job. If your honey is a contractor, bring his tool belt. If he is a lawyer, bring his briefcase. If he is a Pilot bring his pilot shirt and wings. You get the idea…

5. Some of your guy’s clothing. His favorite button down or favorite T-shirt. His favorite hat or pair of boots. His favorite leather jacket. The wrist watch you bought him for your one year anniversary. Think of something he wears all the time or that you gifted to him that will make for a  special meaning.

6. Jewelry! A group of long pearl necklaces with nothing else can be ultimately sexy. Don’t like pearls, bring any type of long necklaces. Also statement pieces can bring the eye straight to your cleavage, big chunky jewelry looks best.

7. Hair jewelry or head pieces can change your look. Don’t be afraid to use big dramatic pieces, they can make your photos unique and stand out.

8. Any type of signs or lettering that says sexy, love, xoxo, your guy’s name, a heart. It can be really small or really big.

9. Champagne bottle and a glass can make for a sexy prop, plus you can drink it too!

10. If either of you play a musical instrument bring it along. It can be fun to incorporate a guitar or other instrument.

Bonus 11. If you are a bride or newlywed, bring your bridal accessories such as veil, garter and even your wedding dress for props.

So of course use this list sparingly. Your photographer will be creative with what you bring but they might be overwhelmed if you bring everything on this list. Mostly focus on bringing great pieces of lingerie and let your body do the talking for your photos. You do not need a prop in every single image.

xo!

Boudoir Photos the best Hottest sexiest gift for men

Boudoir Photos, the best Hottest sexiest gift for men. The boudoir photo trend has been around for a while – it started in the 1940s during World War II, when military men had pinups of Betty Grable and Rita Hayworth to brighten their days. During that time, pinup girls were painted on aircrafts for good luck. In the 50s and 60s, Playboy made racy photography even more trendy. The craze died out a little bit during the 1970s, but not for long – today, it’s back in full swing and hotter than ever. Imagine having editorial style images of yourself to give to your guy and to keep forever. One day you will look back and be glad that you did it.

What’s Not to Like About Boudoir Photos?

Being comfortable in front of a camera is empowering for women, and that major boost of confidence comes off as seriously sexy. Plus, what girl wouldn’t love to be a model for a day? After getting pampered and primped, an experienced photographer shoots your best angles in professional lighting – you’ll never imagine how gorgeous you’ll look in them. Remember, you may be doing a boudoir shoot for your guy, but you’re really doing it for you first.

4 Quick Tips For Being Boudoir-Ready

1. Don’t skimp when it comes to your hair, makeup or nails. Ask the photographer if she can arrange for somebody to be on set to beautify you pre-photo shoot. It’s always recommended to have a professional get you camera-ready.

2. You can be sexy without being naked. Likewise, you can be naked and not be very sexy. The only way to ensure you’ll get natural, alluring photos is to be comfortable, whether you’re in lingerie or nothing at all.

3. Having boudoir photos taken does not mean you need to know how model…which is a good thing. You don’t need to know your best angles – that’s why you’ve hired a professional photographer. You’ll be directed to get into different positions, so there’s no need to master poses before the shoot. So don’t worry about watching those project runway reruns.

4. You’re gorgeous, and your photographer agrees. You’re perfect for these boudoir photos as you are and there’s no need to wait until you lose ten pounds, get a tan or grow your hair out. Or five years might just go by and then you will wish you would have done this fives years ago. Just do it. You will not regret it.

Amp Up the Sexiness
It’s hard to imagine a boudoir photo session getting any more steamy, but you can amp up the sex appeal even more by bringing along some props. Would your guy love to see you wearing a pair of sky high stilettos or holding a playful whip? Maybe you want to promote your good girl-turned-vixen image by bringing along a pair of handcuffs and a lace mask. He would not know what hit him.

Power In Numbers
If you’re determined to give your guy a wrapped boudoir photo of you as a gift, but you’re just too nervous to go to the shoot alone, talk to your girl friends – some of them may have the same idea and the same reservations, too. Ask your photographer if you can book a boudoir party for you and your friends! Or, just bring along one trusted pal to stand on the sidelines and cheer you on.

Boudoir Session Tips

So you’re a little bit nervous about your upcoming session? Well don’t be! It will first of all be lots of fun. You are not only going to feel super sexy and walk away with some of the most amazing images of yourself, you are also going to look back and be like “why the heck was I nervous?”

Still a little nervous? One way to calm your nerves it to bring some Champaign or your favorite wine.
Most photographers do not offer alcohol because of insurance reasons and state laws. In most states you have to have a license to serve alcohol when you are a legal business, but you are free to bring your own.

Now that we have that straightened out let me give you some more advice. Do not drink more then your “tipsy” limit. If this is one drink then stop there. You do not want to be too tipsy that you look that way in your photos.
Only drink enough to loosen you up…and only if you enjoy alcohol and you feel it will make you feel calmer.

Another way to calm your nerves is to bring a friend to your session. Someone that makes you laugh or someone you trust completely and you do not mind them seeing you in your undies.

Practice some facial expressions in the mirror before your session. This will make you more confident in your pouty look or your brilliant smile. Try out a sweet smile showing no teeth but smiling with the corners of your mouth. Also like Tyra says “Smile with your eyes”! There is not a sexier smile then this.

So go get in the mirror and get your sexy on!

Boudoir what to wear or implied nude?

There are no rules when it comes to getting dressed for a boudoir photo session. You don’t have to wear clothes. You also don’t have to be naked or topless. You can (and should) do whatever you feel most comfortable with. Your outfit, or lack thereof, should reflect your personality. If you feel uncomfortable, the photos will show that; on the flip side, if you feel attractive, even a typically basic outfit will come off as seductive and alluring. Take your time and decide what makes you feel the best. All in all this shoot may be for him but you will be the one to most benefit from your sexy photos if you truly love what you see.
