Variety of Wearables:

The foundation of any boudoir photo shoot is, of course, lingerie. However; the sexiness of a slinky dress should not be overlooked! Bring a diverse selection to suit different moods and styles. From classic lace to daring silks, having various options will allow you to express your personality and capture a range of captivating images.

Comfortable Robe or Cover-Up:

A stylish robe or cover-up can add an extra layer of sophistication to your boudoir images. Additionally, it provides you with a comfortable and modest option for moving between sets or discussing details with your photographer.

Heels and Accessories:

Don't forget to pack a few pairs of heels that complement your lingerie choices. High heels not only elongate your legs but also add a touch of sensuality to your photos. Consider bringing accessories like earrings or necklaces that can enhance the overall aesthetic.

Come Ready for Fun:

At my shoots hair and makeup are often included in the experience. Arrive to your shoot with clean un-styled hair with clean moisturized skin. Wear loose fitting clothing with loose or no undergarments. This will make it easy to change without messing your newly quaffed hair and ensure that there will be no marks from bra straps left on your skin for your photographs. Additionally, consider having a manicure and pedicure, your hands and feet play a big role in your boudoir session, and a little pre-pampering will be fun leading up to a memorable day in the studio!
