Tips From A Boudoir Photographer


When it comes to styling your boudoir session, location is just as important as the lingerie or personal care appointments you choose to do. The right location can set the mood, enhance the theme, and create stunning images to round out  a good boudoir photo

As someone who specializes in boudoir photography, I have seen it all and have a few tips to share to help you choose the best location for your boudoir photoshoot.

Let’s start with indoor location options. Popular choices include:

  • your own home 

  • a hotel room, 

  • some other rented location(AirBnB, VRBO, etc.) 

  • A friend’s home or property

These indoor locations offer privacy, allowing you to feel more comfortable and relaxed during your shoot. Additionally, your home may have unique features that can add character and interest to your photos. Think about using your bedroom, living room, or even your bathroom for a sensual and intimate vibe.

If you’re looking for something more adventurous, outdoor locations can provide a breathtaking backdrop for your boudoir photos. Nature settings such as gardens, forests, and beaches can create a romantic and ethereal feel, while urban settings like a hotel balcony or rooftops can provide a bold and edgy atmosphere. Don’t be afraid to get creative and choose a location that speaks to your personality and style.

Tips to make your home prettier for a boudoir session

Now, what if you want to take your photos in your own home but feel like it’s not “photo-ready”? No worries, there are plenty of easy ways to enhance your home for your boudoir shoot. 

Think about adding soft lighting with lamps or candles, using sheer curtains blackout drapes to control or diffuse window light. You can even rearrange furniture to create more aesthetically pleasing space around windows. 

Remember that anything that emits light can add extra interest to  your photos so get creative! For example, small touches such as fresh flowers picked up the morning of your shoot, or candles can also add background interest or even double up as props! 

Most importantly the location you choose should reflect your personality and make you feel comfortable and confident. Whether it’s your own home, a hotel room, or you invite me on a stunning hike with my camera, the possibilities are endless! Therefore I encourage you to get creative and have fun when styling your boudoir photoshoot. It can make a big difference for your photos, and can cost you no more than the daydreaming required to come up with the idea.
