BEFORE THE SHOOT
At Boudoir Creatives, our goal is to create sensual images that are both artistic and extraordinary. Below are a few key points to keep in mind when preparing for your boudoir photo shoot, so we can collaborate together to create a work of art.
What to wear:
Before your boudoir photo shoot, you want to wear clothes that are loose fitting so that there won’t be any marks left on your skin. It is also recommended that you wear a button-down shirt so that your hair and makeup remain intact during outfit changes.
Your outfit during the photo shoot will depend on what we established during the consultation. Since we are Boudoir Creatives, your outfit can be anything from lingerie, costumes, body paint or nude. Your wish is our command!
A boudoir photo shoot is not something you do often. We see this as a special event and we recommend that you invest in some good outfits for your session. We don’t want you to have any regrets looking back at your photoshoot.
What to bring:
Bring jewelry and accessories that you think will match with your outfit. Don’t worry, we will go through them before the shoot and determine which ones to use.
If you decide to shoot in lingerie, bring invisible undergarments to cover areas that are not meant to be photographed. If we are doing nudes and you want to use spray tanning, please do not do it yourself. Let a professional or our stylist apply it for you. This will ensure that it will be evenly spread which will look better in your photos.
At Boudoir Creatives, we do offer makeup services. If you decide to have us do your makeup, please come without any makeup on. We recommend that you get a good night’s sleep the day before and stay hydrated. Be ready to see yourself transformed into a diva!
Shoes are sexy! Bring a few pairs of shoes that will match the look we are going for, but please do not bring your entire shoe closet!
It is always better to be early rather than late. We advise you come early to reduce stress. Stress is nobody’s friend and it shows up in photos.
Relax and Have Fun:
Once your outfit is on point, your hair and makeup are done; all that is left to do is to enjoy your session. Now that you look like a supermodel, we want you to feel like one too. Let go of all your stress and worries and just enjoy yourself. This photoshoot is all about you!
DURING THE SHOOT
At Boudoir Creatives, your shoot can run anywhere from 1 to 3 hours depending on the package you selected. If we are doing your hair and makeup, please allow for an extra hour.
Before the actual shoot, we will take some time to prep everyone, including you. We will go through your outfits and brief everyone on the concepts, framings, and possible poses. We will also do a super fun, top secret, patent, ice breaker that is guaranteed to loosen all the inhibitions and anxiety of everyone on the shoot. We want to make you as comfortable as possible. Friends as escorts are welcome to stay in the waiting area during the photo shoot.
When you book and determine the theme or concept of your boudoir photo shoot, we will send you a comprehensive guide with tips for preparation and posing
THE LITTLE BLACK BOOK

STYLES AND THEMES
If you Google boudoir photography, the images that you will most likely see are the pinup style, in lingerie, placed on the bed kind of photos. This is the most popular look that clients ask for, and we do deliver. However, we want to offer more than just the traditional styles. Each photo shoot is unique. Our goal is to create stunning, sexy, but classy images of our clients with whichever style and theme is chosen.
Some other styles we can explore include:
- Sexy Outdoors
- Bridal Boudoir
- Sports Model
- Sexy Costumes
- Fashion Forward VS Styling
- Glamour Maxim Inspired
- Fine Art Nude
- Body Paint (extra costs may apply)
We can shoot the session in studio but we can also shoot at your place if that is more comfortable for you. We can also shoot at a luxury hotel suite if you are looking to get a different look and feel to the images.
Your book will be ready in 2-3 weeks after the selection of the images for printing.
Your images will not be published on our blog, website and gallery exhibits should you wish.
