PLAYFUL PROMISES – REALLY NICE VINTAGE LOOKING LINGERIE MORE OF AN INVESTMENT.

The first two questions I am asked when clients decide to do a boudoir shoot with me is, " Should I wait and lose 10 pounds," and What should I wear. The very first place I point women to are their own closet. We as women stock up on things that we seldom wear, so my suggestion is this that perfect opportunity. There are many great items you can choose right out of your own closet. Not every item needs to be lingerie, and expensive. Look to your closet for a see through lace blouse, a sweater you can pull of of your shoulder, or a crop top look, that can look super sexy with boy short panties. Items such as a sexy white tank can typically be found in HIS closet too if not in yours. If you are in HIS closet, grab one of his button up shirts or a favorite tie. If your guy is into sports, bring a jersey with some knee high socks. The more you put into the more he will be blown away. I do recommend usually one bra and panty set unless you are trying to hide the tummy area. If that is the case, then a beautiful kimono will do nicely.
Let's be honest women, most of us have lingerie in our drawers that we bought because we liked the idea of it, but never put it on. The more variety, the more photo choices you will have as well. Bring a variety of color. I have always been so Coco Chanel in wearing too much black, so change it up if you're anything like that. Bring a pink something or a more vibrant color. Just be creative! Grab you cowgirl boots or those sexy heels that you would NEVER dare to wear out, you know, the ones that look so good in your closet! Bring some thigh highs, or whatever kind of clothing that might entice his fantasies. If you do plan to bring thigh highs, plan to wear them with a garter belt. Its best to buy the ones without the plastic stay ups. This is one thing us women fiddle around with forever in the studio trying to get the thigh highs to stay up. Bustiers are a great way to create curves and enhance cleavage, but keep in mind that they do not typically have cups built in. A sexy trench coat with ravishing heels can be fun and mysterious!
Almost every woman brings fishnets to her session which are always fun. Although not always a must, jewlry such as long necklaces make for great props, give our hands something to play with. Short colorful piece can add drama, especially to a fine art nude. Bring a couple of color of heels. Nude heels can go with almost any outfit choice as well as black, these are a staple! Again, none of this has to be expensive! If you are on a budget for your boudoir session, try checking out your local thrift shops. There you will be surprised to find a ton of different unused heels that women kept in their closet because they looked so good in there! The biggest tip I can give my clients is to try it on before hand and make sure that you feel SEXY and amazing in your outfit. If you feel uncomfortable in what you have chosen you will feel uncomfortable in the shoot.
Not all women look great in a bra and panty set, and guess what, that's ok! There are plenty of other options that I can help you with to find something that is form fitting to you and will look excellent! I always am happy to give my clients tips to besure that they will have the best experience while with me! I've been doing this along time and have photographed hundreds of women of all shapes and sizes. If I ever make a suggestion to you, know that it comes with a lot of experience in knowing what looks amazing on women! Another suggestion is to check out my gallery thoroughly and Pinterest page to see if there is something you see that you like and would like to know where to get it!
