If you are ready for your first boudoir photoshoot and are looking for some tips, keep reading! Listed below are ten tips to help you prepare like a pro!

1. Find a Photographer You are Comfortable With

Step one to a successful boudoir shoot is finding the perfect photographer. Not only will you be wearing very little, you will likely be in seductive poses either alone or with another person.

If you feel awkward with your photographer, the pictures will show it. Choose someone you trust.

2. Test Outfits for Your First Boudoir Photoshoot

One of the best boudoir tips? Try on a bunch of outfits beforehand. You may have one thing in mind, but it is important to try it on to ensure you like how it looks.

The worst thing is getting to the shoot and realizing then you actually hate how you look. Avoid this by test running at least three or four styles to choose what you like best.

3. Bring Multiple Outfits

Bring one or two backup outfits. You don’t want to rip your outfit as you start the shoot and be left having to cancel.

Bring extra outfits, stockings, whatever you plan on wearing.

Your photographer will also be able to give you the best lighting options based on your outfits and desired pictures.

4. Book After Your Flow

You don’t want to risk feeling tired, bloated, or sick during your shoot. If you even sometimes have these symptoms during your monthly cycle, schedule the shoot for a week or so after.

5. Drink Lots of Water

Hydrate as much as possible the week of your shoot. Avoid drinks or foods that could cause you to bloat or break out.

6. Don’t Wear Tight Clothing to the Shoot

This is something people forget about, but avoid wearing tight leggings, bras, jeans, socks, etc. to your shoot.

Tight items can leave impressions on your skin that will impact how your pictures turn out.

7. Be Careful with Fake Tans

You may think a tan will make your photos look even better. Avoid using at-home lotions and sprays. These can be really hard to get perfect.

If you do want to add a bronzy tone to your skin, seek out a professional for a spray tan.

8. Take Care of Little Things

If you regularly color your hair, don’t forget to get your roots touched up a few days before the shoot. If you have time and want to pamper yourself, go get a manicure and pedicure!

9. Choose Mood Music

Choose some music that will help you feel comfortable and confident. Choose some upbeat jams or a slow number that will make you feel extra sensual. Whatever works for you!

10. Relax

The last and most important tip is to just relax! It will be fun and once you settle into the shoot, you will be glad you did it.
