Safe location, please.
Location is everything when you are planning out a boudoir photo shoot. If you aren’t comfortable with the setup that you are in, this can highly affect your experience overall and you might not come off as confident and as sure of yourself as you would like to be. One of the best and most advisable locations would have to be a nice hotel bedroom. It’s intimate and sexy and more than that, you wouldn’t have to worry about dressing your house up, changing the sheets into something fancy, and so on and so forth. There is a certain novelty that tends to come along with white sheets and well chosen décor and all of these are options made available out to you if you book a hotel room at the end of the day. But then again, you shouldn’t section yourself off to just these options. There are a lot of other locations or venues that you can consider if you aren’t onboard with the hotel room idea. It can be at home or someone else’s home. For as long as the décor and setup is comfortable and according to your liking, then it should be good enough for the boudoir photo shoot that you are planning out so far. Get some insights from your boudoir photographer as well. He will have a lot of suggestions for you to choose from.
Go pro with the hair and makeup.
If there is anything that you should invest heavily on as much as possible, it would have to be the hair and makeup. Don’t attempt to do it yourself unless you are completely confident in what you can do. You need to know for sure that you are going to show up to that boudoir photo shoot being the best version of yourself. Having your hair and makeup on point can do that and can help give you that extra boost of confidence that you will need in order for you to pull off the poses and the shots that you are hoping your boudoir photographer will get. You should seriously consider this. Even if it means that you will be paying out a little something extra on the side, it is bound to be well worth it.
Wear what you want.
You don’t have to be restricted to the cookie cutter expected outfits in the photo session. If you are comfortable with lingerie and other sexy stuff, then go for it. If you aren’t, you can opt for something that you are comfortable with. Just go with the flow and follow your gut instincts as much as possible. You don’t have to go with anything that makes you feel ill at ease.
Choose a trustworthy photographer.
You need someone who is seasoned in what he does but at the same time, who will be sensitive and understand you and how this isn’t something that is normally within your comfort zone. Be very picky with the photographer that you hire out because it will make your photo session so much better if you are with someone that you can rely on and trust.
