Top Tips for Your First Boudoir Session

Top Tips for Your First Boudoir Session

So, you’ve finally mustered up the courage and booked your first boudoir session. Congratulations! There are many excuses people tell themselves as to why they shouldn’t try boudoir photography, and it takes a lot of self-love and confidence to finally make the decision.

Here are a few tips to help you prepare and feel confident for your first boudoir session!

Gather Inspiration Photos

Gathering inspiration photos from Pinterest or looking at your photographer’s previous work is a great way to help you feel more at ease before your session. Get an idea of some poses, outfits, or even hair and makeup you like so you feel prepared to go into the shoot. Visualizing the type of session you want ahead of time will help everything run smoothly. 

Avoid Fake Tan Products

Boudoir photography is about embracing your natural beauty and body. If you have pale skin, there is no need to use fake tanning products as there is always a risk the application could come out blotchy (or orange!). Embrace your natural skin color and watch how your confidence shines through your photos.

Choose Outfits that Empower You

Everybody’s different, and everybody is beautiful. Wear the clothes that you not only feel confident in but accent your incredible body. If you’re on the thinner side and want some curves, wear brighter colors and horizontal lines, there are so many decadent varieties of bra and panty combos on the market today.

Try super-slimming fishnet stockings if you’re on the curvier side and want to add some balance. Ask your boudoir photographer if you’re unsure how to dress your body for a successful shoot.

At The Pouting Room, we offer additional services such as hair and makeup artists and lingerie consultants to help you prepare and feel empowered for your session. Our goal is to make you feel confident and beautiful in your body, regardless of size, shape, ethnicity, race, gender, etc.
