Feeling butterflies in your stomach when you think about doing a boudoir shoot? You are not alone! It’s totally ok to feel the jitters. Boudoir is an intimate experience, and this might be your first time doing something like this. Plus, being vulnerable with a photographer who is practically a stranger can be hard, so it’s totally understandable to be nervous. Here are some tips to overcome your pre-boudoir nerves.
We’re all about open communication here, and that’s how we structure your experience. From our pre-shoot consultation, to our wardrobe session, to our check-ins leading up to your big day, we are 100% here for you. Don’t be afraid to give us a call, shoot us a text, write an email… however you feel the most comfortable communicating, we’ll meet you there. And no feeling is too small for us to talk through. Seriously. We’re always available.
Boudoir is the perfect way to celebrate self-love, and there is nothing like the feeling of seeing your final images. Look through our gallery, watch our behind-the-scenes video, follow us on Insta or join our Facebook group. We post tons of images (only from clients who have signed a model release!) that can help you get an idea of what your images might look like. We celebrate all body types, all skin types, all women.
When you start your dream session with us, the shoot day starts with pampering. The hair and makeup glam squad will do their thing, and we have some drinks on ice waiting for you. Champagne (or another refreshment of your choice) is a luxurious way to take the last edge off.
We love a good quote. You can check out my top 10 favorites here, but the absolute best one that gets me through a rainy day of doubt comes from the great Toni Morrison. “Freeing yourself was one thing; claiming ownership of that freed self was another.” It reminds me that progress is nuanced and that there are many different stages of self-love. We always have work to do!
Still feeling a little unsure? I’d love to help you overcome your pre-boudoir nerves. Sign up for a consultation and let’s talk through what’s going on.
