Here at Warwick Boudoir Photography we are all about empowering women, having fun, and feeling fabulous. Our professional boudoir photography staff will do everything we can to help you have a fantastic experience. However, we need your help! Many ladies make mistakes that have a negative impact on their time with us. Check out these 8 ways to accidentally ruin your boudoir photography experience.

 

Being Late

Okay, so we started off with an obvious one. However, this is one of the quickest ways to ruin your boudoir photography experience. Being late is stressful! It leaves most ladies feeling panicked, rushed, and anxious. Your boudoir photography experience is supposed to be fun, not awful. Not only that, our lingerie photoshoots are by appointment only. If you are running late we may have to cut your photography time short to avoid affecting the appointments of our clients. We don’t have a timer go off exactly when your time is up; we build a bit of a time cushion into every appointment to avoid feeling stressed. However, if you are extremely late, that time cushion may not be enough for you to get the full amount of photography time.

 

Unbalanced Budget

This might not ruin your entire boudoir photography experience, but it can easily have a negative affect on your images. If your budget and priorities are skewed, your classy boudoir photos may not come out as you had hoped. They will still be gorgeous, they just may not be at their full potential. Our staff highly recommends having professional hairstyling and make-up application done. It is better to have 60 minutes of photography time with professional make-up than 90 minutes of photography time without it, and it is better to have more photography time with moderately priced lingerie instead of less time while wearing super pricey luxury lingerie. If you’re worried about staying under budget, contact our professional boudoir photography staff. We will help you budget to get an ideal experience.

 

No Time To Relax

Similar to being late, rushing us is a quick way to have a less than ideal boudoir photography experience. Don’t get me wrong; I completely understand responsibilities. If you have kids to pick up/drop off, a work schedule that needs to be accommodated, plans for after your lingerie photoshoot, that is okay. Just don’t schedule a 3-hour boudoir photography experience when you have exactly 3 hours to do it. When you have months to prepare, make sure to carve out enough time to relax and enjoy yourself. After all, this day is all about you!

 

Bringing the Family

I know you love your family; I’m sure they are wonderful. However, bringing them to our boudoir photography studio is an easy way to ruin your boudoir photography experience. Some ladies feel uncomfortable being sensual in front of their mothers; even if you and mom are best friends, it might be a good idea to leave her at home for this.

 

Our female boudoir photography staff loves seeing pictures of cute kids, but please leave them at home. Our studio is not child appropriate, nor is it child proof. We have lots of sharp edges, plenty of glass, and scantily-clad women on the walls. During our lingerie photoshoots, we make sure our staff is limited to ensure the comfort and privacy of the clients. This means that we do not have anyone available to babysit; instead of spending your photoshoot worrying about your son/daughter, leave them with a trusted caregiver so you can focus on looking and feeling fabulous!

 

Being Too Rigid

Trust me, I totally understand wanting your boudoir photos to be perfect. After all, you spent the money, you prepared yourself, and you probably had to be just a little bit sneaky to keep it a secret from your special someone. Our goal is to help you get the images of your dreams. However, if you have a specific image in mind, you may have to compromise just a little bit. While Candice Swanepoel might look perfect in a particular pose, the exact same pose might not work on your body type. We tailor the boudoir photo poses, styling, lighting, and even camera angles for each individual client’s style and body type. If you are dead set on a particular pose from a particular angle to get an exact copy of an image, you may be disappointed. Our staff specializes in helping you look and feel your best. If you aren’t willing to compromise and try our suggestions, your images most likely won’t turn out as well as they could’ve. If there is an image (or a couple of images!) that you absolutely love, bring them in! Even if we can’t copy them exactly, we can absolutely emulate them to create an image that is perfect for you.

 

Rescheduling

Rescheduling the sibling of being late. They’re related and have some similarities, but are still different enough to get their own section. While we completely understand that life can get in the way of a boudoir photoshoot, rescheduling can do more harm than good. You’ve taken the day off of work, gotten your nails polished and your haircut, and gone shopping. Rescheduling your photoshoot for a later date means that you have to do all of these things again. It can be stressful to try to rearrange plans! Plus, it can leave you feeling rushed and panicked if you need your images by a certain date.

 

Packing the Studio

We love it when ladies bring a friend. It can be comforting and fun to share your boudoir photography experience with a friend. However, too many people can create a stressful boudoir photography experience!  It can be hard to sync up schedules for multiple people, and it can be very strange to be the only one (mostly) naked in a room full of people. If you want to bring a friend, you are absolutely welcome to. If you want to bring two people, that works too. 3 or more is where ladies tend to start feeling awkward.

When it comes to looking fabulous in lingerie photos, many ladies aren't sure where to start. Instead of stressing out, check out our favorite tips and tricks for looking gorgeous during your lingerie photoshoot!

 

Leave it to the Professionals

When it comes to boudoir photography, there are obvious differences between at-home smartphone images and lingerie photos taken by a professional boudoir photographer.  Our 3,300 square foot studio is dedicated to boudoir and pin-up photoshoots; we have sets, lighting, and a ton of space to work in. Most homes don’t have the professional equipment or space to properly pose, light, and photograph lingerie photos. In addition, our professional boudoir photographers will do pretty much everything for you. We will style you, pose you from head to toe, and make any necessary adjustments from straightening lingerie to fixing lipstick to helping hook garter straps if necessary. Besides, wouldn’t it be more fun to have a team of people assisting you than to try to do it all yourself?

 

Talk to Us

When it comes to lingerie photos, different people have different ideas of sexy. Everyone likes a different look; some ladies are super glam, some are natural, and others are playful. Unless you communicate with us, we won’t know what look you are going for! To get your perfect lingerie photos, make sure to bring in some boudoir photography inspiration photos. That way we can see what your style is, and emulate it in your Houston lingerie photos.

 

Get Glammed Up

If you’re going to do lingerie photos, go all out! Instead of trying to do your makeup and hair yourself, allow our professional artist to do it for you! Not only will it help you feel like a supermodel, it will help your lingerie photos look fabulous! Make-up for photography is very different than every day make-up or special occasion make-up. There is specific highlighting, contouring, lining, and application that needs to be done for the best results.  For stunning lingerie photos, leave all of that to our experts.

 

Dress to Impress

Most people have heard the phrase “the clothes make the man”. In this case, the lingerie makes the photo! Make sure to bring some fabulous outfits for your lingerie photoshoot. When it comes to lingerie, pick pieces that are flattering on you and your body type. Some ladies look stunning in babydoll pieces; I am not one of those people. Make sure to select pieces that look good on you, not ones you wish would look good. Pair pretty, well-fitting lingerie with some killer shoes and fabulous accessories and your Houston lingerie photos will be beautiful! Don’t hesitate to ask our professional lingerie photography staff for our favorite tips and tricks for dressing for your body type.

 

Stand Tall

Posture is very important for lingerie photos. Confidence is sexy; if you’re hunched over you will look more shy and uncomfortable than sultry and confident. Our Houston boudoir photographer will pose you from head to toe, so don’t worry about posing. However, each pose begins with you either sitting or standing up straight with your shoulders back and your head held high. Practice sitting and standing straight at home; this will help keep you from being extra sore after your lingerie photoshoot!

 

Don’t Rush the Process

I don’t know about you, but pressure is not my favorite thing. On super busy days when I have a ton of things to get done (especially on my days off) I find myself more stressed than relaxed. When you schedule your lingerie photoshoot, try to pick a day where you can relax. If you’re trying to sneak in for lingerie photos between work, a doctor’s appointment, and picking up the kids from school, you won’t get the full boudoir photography experience. We completely understand your family responsibilities; we have them too! Just make sure to pick a day where you have enough time to enjoy your photoshoot. If you have a commitment at 3 pm, request a 10 am appointment so you won’t feel pressured or rushed.

 

Listen To Us

I know being the focus of lingerie photos can be weird. After all, most people don’t wear lingerie in front of other very often! I also know that posing for boudoir photography can feel weird. You’ll be pushing twisting, arching, etc and trying to look relaxed while doing so. Instead of question our Houston boudoir photography experts, listen to us! We have years of experience helping ladies look and feel fabulous. As long as you can follow directions, your lingerie photos will look fabulous.

It may be getting colder outside, so there's an even bigger reason to heat things up inside. When it comes to choosing your winter nail polish color for your boudoir photo shoot, there are so many styles that are trendy for this year. 

Bold

Go bold. Many of the colors evident on the winter runways have been dark, sultry shades. Deep blues, dark purples, and classic black have all been seen. By getting a manicure with these darker hues, you might just bring out a sensual side of yourself that you didn't even know existed. 

If you're still feeling lost as to what color to choose, many big polish brands such as Essie and Opi offer seasonal collections that are rich and holiday inspired. Since most collections offer around 10 or so shades to the customer, this is a great way to narrow down your choice, especially if you are partial to a particular brand of polish.

Wild

Go wild. Animal prints will always want to inspire the wild side in you. Try a leopard or cheetah print nail applique to show off this look. Sound a little too primitive for you? Try an accent nail or two, to get the same effect without going as big. You can even add a touch of glitter to bring out a little more of your sparkle. 

Timeless

Go classic. A spicy bright red polish or a classy french manicure will always be on trend and look fabulous any day of the year. Remember, red is the color of romance and passion, so you really cannot go wrong with that choice.

You can even coordinate your boudoir manicure with your outfit for the company holiday party. Nail polish colors show off your personality and personal style, so choosing a color that is all about you is an important part of your boudoir photo shoot. Picking the perfect shade for yourself is self-expressive and that is always beautiful.

The weather outside is frightful, but inside can be delightful. With it being so cold, the last thing you want to do is strip down to your goosebumps. Instead of keeping everything closed up tight, heat things up with these 20 tips.

Weather the Cold with these 20 Tips

1. Jump into the hot tub. Relax with a glass of champagne "just because" and see where the night takes you. If you don't have a hot tub, try a warm jacuzzi or bubble bath instead.
2. Try a hot yoga class. Whether you're sweating from the exercise or embarrassment, you'll soon be feeling a little more body confident after this workout.
3. Slather on some body butter. It's cold outside and your skin can use the extra moisture to leave it looking and feeling beautiful.
4. Order some spicy food. Explore your palette and see just how much you can handle.
5. Book a vacation! Why not get away to warmer climates in the winter months or plan it ahead of time for the summer.
6. Toss your sheets in the dryer and snuggle in with your significant other.
7. Get a group of fun and bold friends together for a fun game night.
8. What is more romantic than sitting by the fireplace and enjoying each other's company?
9. Go to Barnes and Noble and find "The Snuggie Sutra." Just do it.
10. Have some fun summer inspired cocktails like "Sex on the Beach."
11. Take a drive with the heat blasting in your car, two cups of hot cocoa, and driving around looking at the holiday lights.
12. Give each other a hot oil massage. That's a sure fire way to heat things up!
13. Schedule some boudoir photos to really get him sweating.
14. Carry a sprig of mistletoe around the house with you.
15. Take a cooking class together and heat things up in the kitchen.
16. January 6th is National Cuddle Up Day. Take advantage of this day and watch a fun movie together.
17. Have a fun active date like going indoor rock climbing.
18. Snowball fight! 
19. Go shopping together. Pick out some outfits you think would make each other look irresistible.
20. Remember nothing will warm you up like a little body heat!!!

What sexy ways do you like to keep warm in the winter?

The post 14 Resolutions Worth Making appeared first on Warwick Boudoir Photography.

]]>
2015 is almost upon us and my social media is flooded with New Year's Resolutions. Instead of committing to something like losing 5 pounds, try one (or all) of our 14 resolutions worth making. 

 

Live Healthy(er!)

There is a reason gyms and fitness centers are packed through January but then slowly empty out. People decide to lose X amount of pounds and try to do so by going on diets and doing intense workouts. While some reach their goal and then fall off the wagon, many people get frustrated and give up. Maybe you don't lose 5 pounds; when you work out, you lose fat but gain muscle. You could be maintaining the same weight but losing inches and toning, which would give you a failed resolution but improved health and figure. Some people resolve to go to the gym 3x a week, 5x a week, or every day. Then life happens. You get sick, you are stuck running errands, etc. Your one missed day means you failed? That is awfully harsh for something meant to help you life a better life. 

What makes living healthy one of our 14 resolutions worth making is that it doesn't put a number on your health, and it isn't instantly broken when life happens. It can be done in degrees; maybe to you living healthy is only eating fast food once a week, maybe it is running 10 miles a day. Whatever it is, it is an attainable goal that will help you live a healthier life. The flexibility of this goal is what makes it one of our 14 resolutions worth making. 

 

Give Back

This is one of my favorite resolutions worth making because it benefits others. Much like living healthier, this resolution can be done in degrees. I know that not everyone can afford to make large monetary donations; giving back isn't only about money. Lots of organizations need someone to donate their time and help volunteer; if you have a special skill, you could donate your time, talents, or something you have made to a charity auction. Giving back can be anything from donating money, fostering (humans or animals), or as simple as offering a cool botter of water to someone in need. 

What makes living healthy one of our 14 resolutions worth making is that it helps make the world a better place. Not only will it brighten someone else's day, you could easily inspire someone else to give back. Since every action means the world to someone, it can be a big or small gesture, whatever you can afford. Every little bit counts. 

 

Scare Yourself

There is a reason hundreds of thousands of people have written "Go Skydiving", "Go Scuba Diving" or something of that nature on their bucket lists: they are terrifying and amazing! This resolution worth making is all about the experience. After all, the experiences that scare you are the ones you share over and over, and the ones you remember forever. Obviously the thing that scares you doesn't have to be a life or death experience; maybe it is rocking a boudoir photoshoot in our Houston boudoir photography studio, maybe it is a new haircut. Regardless of what it is, overcoming your fear will help you feel cool and confident in your daily life. After all, you jumped out of an airplane. That meeting with your boss will be a piece of cake!

What makes scaring yourself one of our 14 resolutions worth making is that it helps get you out of your comfort zone and encourages you to try new things. You might have a talent or love for something that you were too scared to try. Even if you don't love it, you will still have an experience you will never forget and confidence that will last a lifetime!

 

Keep in Touch

In a world so connected to technology, it might seem odd for this to be on a list of resolutions worth making. We might be plugged in, but that doesn't mean that we are communicating. These days some friendships are measured in Facebook likes and comments, coversations are held in emoticons and abbreviations (lol totes 4 real KWIM?), and birthdays are celebrated with e-cards. Instead of brief, shallow digital conversations, try a nice, long phone call or, even better: an in-person get-together! I know hectic schedules can make it hard, but meeting with a friend for an hour or two once a month will help strengthen your bond, and give you a chance to really connect. 

What makes keeping in touch one of our 14 resolutions worth making is that it deepens relationships and lifts spirits. Looking at a face instead of a screen gives a better feeling and creates a more meaningful bond. Invite your parents out to dinner, catch up with an old friend, or build a new friendship. If a relationship is worth having, don't let life get in the way of it. Make some time and enjoy it! 

 

Learn Something New

Relax, I'm not telling you to learn an entire language in a year! However, learning something new definitely belongs on a list of resolutions worth making. After school ends, many people stop reading and stop learning. Instead of sticking with what you already know, try learning something new! There are tons of things out there; if you're a foodie, take a cooking class. Love music? Pick an instrument and take lessons. Always wanted to learn how to make things? Try a class at a maker space! As one of the largest cities in the nation, Houston has tons of options and you are guaranteed to find one that works for you. 

What makes learning something new one of our 14 resolutions worth making is that it benefits your daily life, is fun, and exercises your mind to help keep it working at it's top potential. You might find a new hobby that you love, you might learn that you really only like eating food (not making it), or you might simply enjoy a few days of something different.

 

Enjoy the Little Things

How could I leave Zombieland Rule #32 out of our list of 14 resolutions worth making? Obviously I couldn't! It is so easy to get caught up in wanting more, whether it is more clothes, the newest iPhone, a new car, etc. In 2015, make a resolution to enjoy the little things. If you get home late from work, instead of just walking to your door, look up and stargaze even if only for a minute. Take a blanket right out of the dryer and wrap yourself up in it. No matter how small, enjoy those moments and remember them. Taking a few minutes to appreciate small things will give you an overall more positive outlook on life. 

What makes enjoying the little things one of our 14 resolutions worth making is that it helps you be an overall happier person. When you appreciate small things, you have a more positive outlook on life. The positive things seem bigger, while the bad things seem less negative. 

 

Get Organized

Okay, so getting organized is on a lot of New Year's resolution lists. However, it is one of our 14 resolutions worth making for good reason. Being organized saves time, money, and effort which leaves you less stressed about finding things! Like most of our other resolutions worth making, it can be adjusted for your needs. It can be something as small as organizing your desk drawer or as big as redoing the entire garage. 

What makes getting organized one of our 14 resolutions worth making is the profound improvement you will see in your life. When you aren't spending time searching for something, you have that time to do other things. Plus the stress you feel when searching for something you need now but can't find? Gone. 

 

Spend Responsibly

Approximately 1/3 of all Americans currently have bills currently in collections. This doesn't include home debt, car debt, or most credit card debt. It can be easy to swipe a card and not realize how much money you are spending. While building credit is great, spending money you don't have is awful. The interest on cards can put you even further behind. Instead of spending money on whims and unnecessary purchases, try spending more responsibly. For some people that means skipping your second daily cup of Starbucks, for others it means buying one Rolex instead of two. Spending responsibly doesn't mean cutting out all fun purchases, just limiting them and living on a reasonable budget. 

What makes spending responsibly one of our 14 resolutions worth making is the financial and emotional benefits you will see. By saving money, you will have it available if an emergency arises. You won't have to worry about not being able to afford sudden large expenses, and you can feel confident that you can truly relax after retirement. 

 

Take a Trip

Whether it is a month long globetrotting vacation or a weekend staycation, taking a trip definately belongs on a list of resolutions worth making. You can experience a new culture, or explore your city in a way you haven't before. Even if it is only a day trip, taking a quick jaunt can have long-lasting benefits. Whether you go by yourself on a journey of self-discovery or take someone special for some bonding time, the anticipation, journey, and memories of a trip will help make your 2015 fabulous. 

What makes taking a trip one of our 14 resolutions worth making is the benefits! Although travel can be stressful, taking a trip will relax you, rejuvenate you, and give you the opportunity to experience new things. 

 

De-Stress Yourself

Have you noticed that most of our resolutions worth making involve relaxing and de-stressing? That's because stress is, well, stressful! De-stressing is one of the best things you can do for yourself. Don't stress about de-stressing; most of our 14 resolutions worth making will help you de-stress. Other ways to de-stress your life include exercise, massages, and taking a hot bath. 

What makes reducing stress in your life one of the top resolutions worth making is the profound changes being more relaxed will have on your life. Your health, both mental and physical, will improve, as will your relationships with friends, family, and strangers. When you aren't overly stressed you will be more productive, feel better, and have an overall better quality of life.

 

Downsize

Downsizing, decluttering, whatever you'd like to call it, doing it can make a huge improvement in your life. You don't have to move or get rid of truckloads of stuff, but donating some things can create more room in your home, make finding the things you love easier, and can help your whole life feel less cluttered. Even cleaning out your junk drawer and getting rid of the 5 pens that are almost out of ink but may have enough for one last grocery list can help. 

What makes downsizing one of our 14 resolutions worth making is the improvement of your qualitty of life. You'll spend less on new things, have more space, and feel more relaxed.

 

Disconnect

If I had a dollar for every time someone on a cell phone or other mobile device ran into me, my idea of spending responsibly would be only buying 3 vacation houses instead of 4. Most people use their mobile device first thing in the morning, constantly throughout the day, and right before they go to bed. Instead of being constantly plugged in, try unplugging for a while. Obviously if your job requires you to be on call, your cell phone should not be your disconnection of choice. However, ignoring a few phone calls when you're out at dinner with friends or leaving your phone in your pocket during a walk can be the perfect way to disconnect and appreciate the moment. 

What makes disconnecting one of our 14 resolutions worth making is the appreciation it gives you for your surroundings. When clients are in our Houston boudoir photography studio, we ask them to leave their phones in the dressing room so they can focus on feeling as fabulous as they look. Being constantly on Facebook, Twitter, or texting can leave you stuck in a digital place instead of enjoying the moment. 

 

Say Yes!

It can be easy to get stuck in a rut. After all, there is a reason the saying "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" became popular. However, not trying new things can leave you feeling stuck and bored. Instead of turning down opportunities, say yes! Try a new resturant, check out the hot new club, go skydiving, try a pottery class! Whatever it is, give it a shot. Maybe you'll love it, maybe you won't. No matter which, it will be something different!

What makes saying yes one of our 14 resolutions worth making is the benefits it will have on your life. Saying yes to something, no matter how small, can add a much needed spark to a dull day. Try something new can be the thing that revitalizes you and remind you how much fun life can be. 

 

Feel Beautiful

Every woman should feel beautiful. I know it is hard; the women we see on TV, in magazines, and in movies look absolutely flawless, leaving most ladies feeling inadequate. Instead of constantly tearing yourself down, appreciate what you have! Love your beautiful brown eyes, the way the light catches your hair, and how that one shirt makes your figure look. Whatever it is, love it! If you're ready to feel as stunning as we know you are, try coming in for a boudoir photoshoot! Our professional boudoir photographers will style you from head to toe, pose you in flattering boudoir photography poses, and even help you get the perfect sultry expression. We welcome ladies of all sizes, styles, and preferences; we know every woman is beautiful and we love helping women see their beauty.

What makes feeling beautiful one of our 14 resolutions worth making is that you deserve it. You deserve to feel as beautiful as the rest of the world knows you are.

Let's be honest. Guys have two major loves in their lives: their lady and their sports team. Mixing these two adorations for a boudoir photo-shoot will send him into another dimension! He'll forget all about the cooler weather coming because it just got a whole lot hotter in here.

Heat Up Game Night 
We are in the heat of football season, so if football is your guy's thing, there are so many ways to take a tastefully sexy photo sporting the jersey of his favorite player or a hat. The hardest decision here will be if he wants to play touch or tackle football. Why not add a little more of a cos-play type vibe to your shoot and lace up some cleats, thigh high socks, and a shirt with his favorite baseball team's logo and colors? Whatever your choice, you are sure to hit a grand slam! 

There are so many different interests that can be played up in your boudoir-style photos. Whether he's into hockey or golf, you can perfectly show off his two biggest interests all wrapped up in on package.

Keep things simple with just a jersey and matching panties, and his eyes won't want to look anywhere else. If you're a bride-to-be, your new husband will adore these photos as an excellent reminder of why you're just the girl for him.

A Present for Mr. Naughty or Mr. Nice
With Christmas and Valentine's Day right around the corner, keeping his interest in mind, especially with an extra sassy set of photos, are a total win for your team and the perfect gift for him. And guys, you can give your lady the opportunity to feel her best and show off her beauty with a set of photographs that you will both love. While sports take up a lot of "air time" in a man's mind, this sporty photos will leave him thinking about a whole lot more than just his team. It's safe to say he will have a brand new favorite player!

Many of this winter's beauty trends have come in straight from the runway. The overall consensus appears to be: lips are out, dramatic eyes are back in. Also back on trend is the natural look, ballerina buns, and cornrows.

 

The eyes were certainly played up and have returned as the focus point of makeup artists. Nearly every designer show-cased neutrals in eye shadows. Taupes were the most prominent of colors and strived for a healthy, natural look. In addition to neutrals in shadows, super long false lashes remain an on point style for this winter. Still hanging on from the fall season is bold blue shadow. Bronze and gold were seen at several shows as a color for both eyes and lips. 

 

One of the biggest surprises showcased on the runways for the winter season was the shocking return of cornrows. Designers from Alexander McQueen to Givenchy had models sporting the look. If cornrows are not really your style, the gently tousled ballerina bun remained a top hairstyle. Ballerina buns were often shown with light neutral purple and pink makeup. Also in hair trends were side swept parts. 

Probably one of the most common and arguably beautiful looks that has always remained chic both on the runway and in real life is the no-makeup-makeup look. Natural hair and natural makeup alike have been hot on trend for years past and don't seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. 

 

When it came to nails, many designers stuck with the natural theme and went for the nude nail look. Classic red and black solid nails will be popular this winter season as well. Women who want to walk a little more on the wild side can explore metallic and nail art inspired looks in coordinating bright colors. With appliques, hand painted designs and even rhinestones, there is no wrong way to do nails this winter season.

If you already have the perfect gift for your special someone but want to supplement it with something sexy, check out our stocking stuffer edition of our boudoir photography gift guide!

 

Playing Cards

If your special someone is into poker or another card game, a set of sexy playing cards is the perfect stocking stuffer! We can make sure to do some anonymous boudoir photos if you don’t want your face featured; no one but you and your special someone need to know the gorgeous woman on the cards is you!

 

Puzzle

A puzzle might not be the first thing you think of when you’re thinking about boudoir photography, but it is the perfect sexy stocking stuffer! All of our puzzles come broken up in a bag, so they will fit perfectly into a stocking and keep your special someone entertained and intrigued. The protective coating keeps your image shiny and clear; some clients frame the completed puzzle!

 

Viewmaster

Okay so a viewmaster might belong a bit more in a pin-up stocking stuffer gift guide than a lingerie photography gift guide. However, they are so much fun I don’t think anyone will complain! Our personalized Viewmasters come with a customized reel of 7 of your gorgeous images and the body of the Viewmaster, all packaged in a box.

 

Keychain

The smallest item in our stocking stuffer boudoir photography gift guide, this keychain packs a big punch! Made with black leather and silver hardware, the keychain features a stunning image of you printed on photographic paper and protected behind a sheet that protects and preserves your image. It is the perfect stocking stuffer for the guy on the go; he can keep your favorite image with him all the time!

 

What boudoir photography stocking stuffer gift would you add to our gift guide?

 

Remember: a gift certificate for a Houston boudoir photography session is the perfect stocking stuffer gift for her!

We are well into the holiday season! If you're anything like our staff, you are desperately searching for the perfect gift for your special someone. Instead of emptying your wallet on expensive presents for your significant other, try these 3 thrifty sexy gift ideas for a lot of bang for your buck! Bonus: each of these suggestions will be appreciated by all genders!

 

Pamper Package

When asked, the majority of Americans say they are stressed. To help your special someone relax, give them a pamper package! Prepare a day or night of rest and relaxation for your lover. Our recommended items are:

 

Bubble Bath/Bath Oils

Start the evening with a relaxing soak (for one or two!) Items like bubble bath and bath oils will soften skin and come in soothing scents like lavender.

 

Massage Lotion (and massage!)

Not only will this thrifty sexy gift idea give you an excuse to touch your partner, it will also help them relax. Even if you aren’t a trained masseuse, they will still appreciate the rubdown!

 

Candles

While this thrifty sexy gift idea may be appreciated more by females (though it may not!) candles are the perfect way to set the mood for a romantic, relaxing evening at home. Choose scents that compliment the smell of the lotion or bath items, or go scentless. You don’t want to be overwhelmed by perfume!

 

Champagne

Champagne has long been seen as elegant and sensual. Surprise your special in the bath with a glass. Choose a bottle that fits your budget and has excellent reviews. If you want to make this thrifty sexy gift idea look even fancier don’t forget…

 

Strawberries (or another sexy snack!)

Try putting some strawberries into a glass of champagne for an instant lift. It will look and taste phenomenal, and having some food will keep you from drinking on an empty stomach.

 

 

Cozy Carton

If the pamper package isn’t quite what you had in mind, a cozy carton may be just the thrifty sexy gift for you! Wrap up a blanket, a movie, a bottle of wine, and an iou for a home cooked meal. We recommend using immediately for a cozy evening at home with lots of snuggling. If you wanted to take the sexy up a notch, include some barely-there pajamas to encourage snuggling and body heat to stay warm!

 

If you want to get really steamy, you should try a…

 

Racy Wreath

The raciest of our thrifty sexy gift ideas, the naughty wreath is perfect for a couple who is more interested in unwrapping each other than unwrapping gifts. Simply take some wire or twist ties and a wreath/wreath frame and attach some goodies. Popular options include: feathers, a whip, a blindfold, lotions, lingerie, handcuffs, and other things of that nature.  For this thrifty sexy gift idea, make sure not to use glue! You may end up ruining your treats.
