What is boudoir photography?

Boudoir photography is a type of photography that focuses on capturing intimate and sensual images of a woman. It’s typically done in a hotel, studio, your home, or in a location of your choice. The goal is to create beautiful and tasteful images that make the subject feel confident and beautiful.

What should I wear for my boudoir shoot?

The most important thing to keep in mind when choosing what to wear for your boudoir shoot is to wear something that makes you feel confident and comfortable. Lingerie, a robe, or a simple white tank top and underwear can all be great options. Some women prefer to wear something that has personal meaning to them, such as a piece of jewelry that was a gift from a loved one. Most boudoir photographers including Couture Boudoir® will provide you with a comprehensive list of suggested items to wear for your shoot.

How should I prepare for my boudoir shoot?

To prepare for your boudoir shoot, it’s important to get plenty of rest the night before, eat a healthy meal, and drink plenty of water. It’s also a good idea to exfoliate your skin and moisturize to ensure that your skin looks smooth and radiant. Get a mani/pedi, shave or wax or the areas that may peek through your lingerie, and be sure to see your hair colorist pre-shoot.

At Couture Boudoir® we will be your personal cheerleaders and guide you every step of the way.
