Boudoir Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What is boudoir photography?
A. Boudoir is a french term for a woman's dressing or private room. It is where a woman's most intimate secrets are kept behind closed doors, and that includes a woman's body and secret desires. Boudoir photography is an extension of that intimacy, empowering women to dress sexy and confidently in a bedroom setting and be proud of their body.
Q. How many lingerie outfits can I wear for my boudoir photography session?
A. Bring as many lingerie outfits as you wish as time allows. We recommend 2 to 4 lingerie outfits per hour, but please bring more and we can recommend which may suit you best. Our number one recommendation for boudoir outfit is a corset and garters, which provide you the best curves in all the right places! We also recommend stockings, a few lace bras and panties, heels and a few accessories to bring along. Just have fun, and remember this is to empower yourself as well as getting a smile from your SO. We also suggest to bring an fun outfit, such as your hubbie's tie and shirt, even a jersey. Think of your SO's reaction!
