Trend Report: Boudoir––It’s Not What You Think It Is!

After taking engagement pictures, you’re hopefully loosened up and almost used to being the center of attention behind the camera. Have you wanted an excuse to get behind the camera one more time before your big day? Or are you looking for an incredibly intimate Valentine’s day gift for your man?

Look no further, I have an idea for you!

Try a boudoir photo shoot!


Stop! I see the wheels turning and the negative thoughts swirling, boudoir is not what you might think it is. It has truly transformed from uncomfortable lingerie and awkward poses. Now, don’t get me wrong, if you got a new teddy at your bachelorette party and want to bring it along for the shoot, by all means, bring it! But, it is not necessary!

Comfort is key. Grab a comfy tee, maybe even your guys’ favorite button down, some cute panties and you’re ready to go!

To help make you feel comfortable and confident, the most important piece of advice I can give is to do things you’d do in your own home. Whether that’s snuggling up in a warm blanket, or drinking a glass of wine by the fireplace, every photographer’s goal is to portray the real you. They want to let your natural beauty shine through!
