So, you are considering having sexy (boudoir) photos taken. Awesome!! Whether as a intimate wedding present for a fiance, a sexy anniversary present for a husband, or a surprise seductive present, many women all have the same question: “But what will I wear?!?”
Here are a few outfit ideas:
a SEXY look: This is your classic “all out” boudoir look! Think corsets, garters, thigh-highs, teddies, heels, jewelry, the WORKS!
Common colors and textures: black, red, deep purple, mesh, lace, sparkles, ribbons. Popular retailer: Frederick’s of Hollywood
a PRETTY/CUTE look: Perfect for the girl who is sweet, sexy and fun! This could be a simple bra and panty set, nightie, a soft robe, or something similar.
Common colors and textures: lace, satin, pastels, bright colors, white. Popular retailer: Adore Me! Plus, your first set is only $25!
a UNIQUE look: Now is the perfect time to think of your personality/relationship. What are things that you like to do together? What does he do for work? What’s his hobby?
Ideas: a sports jersey/sports equipment, his work shirt, his favorite food, shorts and a t-shirt, his musical instrument.
UNDER the SHEETS: I’m not gonna lie, this is my favorite! It takes a certain level of confidence to be photographed with a simple white bed sheet being draped across you, but women who do it always find it to be a crowd pleaser! Plus, I find it to be the most flattering and natural!
Other props and ideas to include in your session:
Flowers, a coffee mug, your favorite sweater, a book, something showing your personality, hats, pearls, fur, your wedding veil…the sky is the limit! Don’t forget to talk any extra special ideas you have over with your photographer before your session.
While I know that we as women can be very self-conscious about our bodies, as a photographer, I tell many of my ladies that “I am on the man’s side.” Normally, sexy photos like these are done with a certain man in mind. I think it is always best to keep what he would like best in mind regardless of our insecurities. No woman is perfect, but he loves you just the way you are!!!
