When it comes to luxury lingerie, our Houston boudoir photography clients can be very divided. Some clients love luxury lingerie and choose to buy a couple of stunning sets, while others would rather purchase more less expensive pieces for their lingerie photography experience.

 

We, much like the stunning icon Dita Von Teese, feel like luxury lingerie isn’t an option, but rather a necessity in the lives of our boudoir photography clients.

 

Although the prices and options can be a bit overwhelming at times, our professional boudoir photography staff believes finding the perfect luxury lingerie is well worth the effort.

 

Beautiful Secret

 

“I love it when you can go about your daily business with the knowledge that you have a little secret of your own on underneath" – Dita Von Teese

 

Although we do love luxury lingerie during boudoir photoshoots, it shouldn’t be limited to our Houston boudoir photography studio! Luxury lingerie is something that should be worn every day under your clothes. Not only will it help your clothes fit better, you will have a beautiful secret that only you know. This beautiful secret will help you feel sexy and confident every day.

 

 

Quality

 

“Don't save your good lingerie for dates, wear it for YOU." – Dita Von Teese

 

When it comes to cost versus worth of luxury lingerie, there is no comparison. Well made, quality lingerie will fit beautifully, last for years, and keep you feeling sexy every day. Luxury lingerie shapes your body, and creates a flattering silhouette. You deserve to feel comfortable and confident every day, and luxury lingerie can help with that. Keep in mind that, while the quality is there, luxury lingerie needs to be washed carefully to keep it in good condition.

 

Feeling Beautiful

 

“It’s not about seducing men, its about embracing womanhood"- Dita Von Teese

 

While our professional boudoir photography staff knows that each and every one of our clients is absolutely beautiful, we are women as well. That means we know what it is like to not feel beautiful, sexy, or confident every day. Wearing luxury lingerie underneath your clothes is an easy way to be reminded how beautiful you and your body are.

 

Better Fit

 

When you purchase clothes, you buy them because they fit well, they look nice, and they make you feel good, right? What if they could fit even better, look stunning, and make you feel sensational? With well-fitting, luxury lingerie they can.

 

When you build a house, you need to make sure you have a solid foundation. No matter how beautiful a building is, a flawed foundation can destroy it. The same is true with your clothing.

 

No matter what size or style your clothing, good quality, luxury lingerie will help it look even better.  The pieces will hang better, your body will be shaped better, and the material will feel nicer against your skin.

 

 

Boost Confidence

 

“For me, lingerie isn’t about seduction, it’s about being a woman." – Dita Von Teese

 

I don’t know about you, but when I think I look good, I feel good. Maybe it’s shallow, maybe I’m silly, but it works. There is nothing like getting a fresh haircut and color the day before a big meeting, or rocking a pair of particularly flattering jeans on a first date. Luxury lingerie will help you look good, which will help you feel good (whether under clothes, or by itself!)

 

 

Sultry Seduction

 

“True sexiness has many facets. The elements include things like confidence, strength, intelligence, and humor." – Dita Von Teese

 

I conducted an informal poll; the vast majority of women and males I asked said that guys love seeing them/their special someone in luxury lingerie. Not only is luxury lingerie sultry and special, it also helps women look and feel beautiful. Feeling beautiful and comfortable in your own skin is a special kind of sexy that appeals to all men.

 

Which brand of luxury lingerie would you splurge on for your Houston boudoir photography session?

Ladies, we all know that your man works hard so that he can take you out on fun dates, buy you gifts and give you all of the best things in life. While we feel certain you’ve shown your appreciation a thousand times over, we believe there is no better way to show how much you appreciate your man’s efforts than to give him a photo book of you dressed in his work clothes from a Houston boudoir photography shoot.

The Office Look

One of our absolute favorite looks is when ladies opt to wear their man’s white collar business accessories. You can look relaxed and gorgeous in his over-sized white button-down shirt for a more intimate, at-home feel. Alternatively, match his favorite tie with new lingerie to give him a whole new reason to love suiting up. If you want to do something really fun, our Houston boudoir photographers recommend doing a sexy “strip” that transitions from wearing his shirt and tie to tasteful nudes.

Wear His Tool Belt—and Little Else

If your fellow is particularly handy around the house, you could bring his tool belt and some of his favorite tools to your boudoir-style photography session. Wear his coveralls and a little artfully placed “grunge” makeup to create a classic pinup look or creatively place his tool belt and tools to create a naughty but nice photo set he’ll never forget.

He’ll Love a Lady in Uniform

It’s no secret that every lady loves a man in uniform. If you’re one of the lucky ladies who has caught herself a soldier, fireman, police officer or other man in uniform, you can let him know that you appreciate his service by bringing along a few select pieces of his uniform to your Houston boudoir photography session.

Wear his hat and tools of the trade for a cute themed shoot. If you’d rather look more like a pinup girl, you could incorporate those items with a sexier costume version of his everyday work uniform. Remember, boudoir pictures are especially nice for your man to have when he is on a long deployment or working that overnight shift.

If the idea of wearing your man’s work clothes for a Houston pinup photography shoot gets you excited, we encourage you to book an appointment with us today.

One of our most popular Houston boudoir photography specials is back! From now through September 30, we are bringing back our Calendar Girl Package, which will let you create a custom 12-month boudoir or pinup-themed calendar for your man. Many of our customers choose to theme their calendar around their hubby’s favorite sports teams, but we welcome your creativity.

If you didn’t check out our Calendar Girl Special last year, here’s the scoop: For only $400 (plus tax), we will give you a boudoir-style photography experience you won’t soon forget. You will receive:

Professionally Airbrushed Makeup

Before your session begins, one of our professional makeup artists will help you to create a customized look through the use of airbrushed makeup and false eyelashes based on your desires and personal style. As a bonus, you can add professional hairstyling for only $100 more. However, you must book your hairstyling session in advance.

60 Minutes of Photography Time

Once you’re all dolled up, you will have a full hour of photography time with one of Warwick Boudoir’s Houston boudoir photographers. We encourage you to bring whatever costumes or outfits that you might want to show off for your calendar. If you are planning on a theme, let us know in advance so that we can have the perfect backdrop for you.

For most of our customers, an hour of photography time allows for plenty of outfit changes and poses. If you think you will want more time, you can purchase it in 15-minute increments.

A Private Photo Reveal Session

One to two weeks after your Houston pinup photography session, we will invite you back to our studio for a private photo reveal session. During this time, you will be able to see your digitally edited images, choose which ones you like best for your calendar and explain to us exactly how you would like them displayed. With the Calendar Girl Special, you will ultimately receive 13 images: one for each month and an additional image for the calendar cover.

A 12-Month Calendar Featuring You

He’s going to love his calendar girl each and every day of the year. We can start your calendar in any month, so consider starting on his birth month or your anniversary month — or just go the traditional route.

Please remember that the Calendar Girl Special is a limited-time offer. You can book your Houston boudoir photography session for any day you like, but you must have completed your paperwork and paid the nonrefundable retainer fee by September 30 to get this amazing deal.

Why Underwire Bras are Important in Boudoir Photographyhttp://www.warwickboudoir.com/underwire-bras-important-boudoir-photography/ http://www.warwickboudoir.com/underwire-bras-important-boudoir-photography/#comments Mon, 15 Sep 2014 14:30:17 +0000 http://www.warwickboudoir.com/?p=3933 Some people can't stand underwire bras, and I totally get it.

Some people can't stand underwire bras, and I totally get it. They can be stiff, uncomfortable, and sometimes the wire will come out and stab you when you least expect it. 

 

As unpleasant as they can be, underwire bras are vital for most ladies when it comes to their Houston boudoir photography sessions. In this blog we will discuss breast size in order of largest to smallest, and why each size can benefit from wearing properly fitted underwire bras. 

 

 

D Cup and Larger

The larger your ladies, the more important support is! For D-Cups and larger, underwire bras are absolutely vital for Houston boudoir photography. Their volume makes them particularly susceptible to wanting to escape from flimsy tops. They will also tend to sit lower than smaller breasts, which can leave them sitting in the wrong position in tops with little to no support. Underwire bras offer support, shaping, and lift for busty girls, which makes them the perfect bra for Houston boudoir photography. 

 

B and C Cups

Though you may be able to get away without wearing underwire bras, we still recommend wearing them if you want to do Houston pinup photography or Houston boudoir photography. During a boudoir photography experience, our staff will have you posing, twisting, arching, and contorting in ways that don't feel sexy but look phenomonal. Your breasts may be nice and perky, but the positioning of your body can leave them looking strange. Wearing underwire bras during boudoir photography helps keep everything in place while you pose, and keeps one breast from appearing larger or smaller than the other, or squished!

 

A Cups and Smaller

Lucky you! You don't need an underwire bra, and can wear those adorable, lacy pieces that offer no support but look fabulous. If you are super tiny you can probably get away without wearing underwire bras. However, super small breasts can benefit from the structure of underwire bras, especially if you're interested in a little bit of padding. Padding with no underwire for structure can lead to it sitting oddly, or being shaped strange. Wearing an underwire with padding can help shape your breasts, and provide the lift you are looking for. 

 

Augmentated Breasts

If you have undergone an augmentation you might not need the support of an underwire, especially if they haven't "settled" yet. However, if they have settled, you may be facing the same concerns of ladies with C cups and above. This means that underwire bras could be your best friend during your Houston boudoir photography session. 

 

What is your favorite underwire bra? Is it more functional or flirty?

For a while, it seemed like everyone was bringing in pictures of eye makeup that they absolutely loved and wanted to try during their boudoir photography session. We saw sultry smokey eyes, retro-inspired cat-eyes, and even some fun colorful eyes featuring blue eyeliner. However, lately everyone has been all about boudoir photography lipstick! We have had tons of clients bring in their favorite shades, and request that we build their look around that. 

 

If you're trying to figure out what color of boudoir photography lipstick you should rock, check out our quick and easy guide to decoding your boudoir photography lipstick color!

 

Nude

The great thing about choosing nude boudoir photography lipstick is that it is subtle and can go with any lingerie without clashing. It works particularly well for ladies who want a super intense, smokey eye; during a Houston boudoir photography session, we try to pick one focal point on your face to avoid an overdone, cluttered feeling. Nude lips allow the eyes to be that focal point. However, it also works for ladies who want a very natural look with soft lips and eyes. 

 

Pastel Pink

Pastel pink is another popular boudoir photography lipstick color. It is soft, pretty, and feminine, which makes it perfect for ladies who are seeking the sweet and sexy girl-next-door look. Like nude lipstick, pale pink lipstick can be used with soft, natural eyes or super smokey eyes. 

 

Bright Pink/Coral/Tangerine

The brighter the boudoir photography lipstick, the bolder the look! Colors like bright pink, coral, tangerine, etc are bold and trendy, yet still manage to be beautifully playful. If you choose to go with this stand-out look, make sure to pick your lingerie carefully. The brighter the boudoir photography lipstick, the greater chance that it will clash with brightly colored lingerie. If you choose lingerie that is the exact same color of your lipstick, your images can appear oversaturated. 

 

Red

A traditional color for boudoir photography lipstick, red lips evoke feelings of power, passion, and lust. They are incredibly sexy, and manage to add a classic yet risque look to images. If you want Old Hollywood Glamour Photos, red lips are the way to go. Due to the boldness of the lip, we recommend a more subdued eye look if you want red lips. A bold cat-eye looks fabulous, as does a soft, natural eye. If you go with red boudoir photography lipstick, try to stick with neutral colored lingerie. Pinks tend to clash, greens can look holiday inspired, and if you don't match your red lingerie with your red lips it can be distracting to the eye. 

 

Plum

Plum boudoir photography lipstick is a trend that is on the rise. The deep tones are hyper-edgy and sultry. When done on pale skin, the pop of color is unbelievable; it also works very well for dark skin. Although it can be intimidating, plum boudoir photography lipstick is ideal for ladies who want a stand out look and aren't afraid to take that risk. When you choose to go with plum boudoir photography lipstick, make sure you pick lingerie that matches! This edgy color works best with deep tones; it can look out of place with frilly, pastel boudoir photography lingerie. 

 

 

No matter what look you want, our professional boudoir photography team will help you pick the perfect shades to get beautiful, classy boudoir photos.

The post Packing for Beach Boudoir Photography appeared first on Warwick Boudoir Photography.

As you may have noticed, most of our posts about packing for boudoir photography, whether it is in-studio traditional boudoir or on-location beach boudoir photography, are filled with tips and suggestions based on you. Your style, your body shape, the images you want, your comfort level. Don't get me wrong, I love them! Boudoir photos are all about you (and maybe a little bit for him!), so why wouldn't you want information that will help you look your absolute best?

 

Today things are going to be a little bit different. I'm not sure if you have noticed, but I'm super excited for our upcoming beach boudoir photography session. Since it is something very different for our clients, I've been blogging a lot about how to prepare and what to bring. 

 

This particular blog is about what every women needs for a beach boudoir photoshoot. We have suggestions and recommendations for things you will want before, during, and after your beach boudoir photography experience that you may forget in your beach-lingerie packing frenzy! These recommendations will work for every body type and every style!

 

Before Beach Boudoir Photography

You'd think that the time before your beach boudoir photography experience would be easy, right? Wrong! Many ladies find the pre-photography time to be the most stressful of all. Here are some items you may find helpful before your beach boudoir photography experience that you may not realize you need!

 

Sunglasses

We love early morning beach boudoir photography. Pictures taken as the sun is rising are stunning! However, sunrise is a very limited time; many ladies want their beach boudoir photos to be taken in full sun. This means that it will be sunny! Instead of a hat that will muss your hair, grab a pair of sunglasses to shade your eyes. Not only will your eyes thank you, it will also help keep you from tearing up and possibly crying off your eyeliner! If your sunglasses are super stylish, you can rock them in some of your beach boudoir photos too!

 

During Beach Boudoir Photography

The stressful part is over; you've made it to the beach! Now all you need to do is listen to our professional boudoir photographer who will pose you from head to toe. However, there are a couple of things we need you to bring to make your beach boudoir photography session perfect. 

 

Beach Lingerie

I'm not going to go into specifics because we already discussed beach lingerie for beach boudoir photography in our blog (click here to read). However, it is something that is very important for you to remember! It would be devastating to make it all the way to the beach and forgotten that very important suitcase. 

 

Jewelry

We love jewelry in boudoir photography. It adds a special sparkle that enhances your images without overwhelming them. Why would beach boudoir photography be any different? For an edgy look, feel free to go even bigger and bolder than you would go (or have gone!) in traditional boudoir photography. Thick or layered chains, chunky stones, and boho-inspired pieces all look stunning, and fit with the beachy aesthetic. Keep in mind that the beach is wet, salty, and sandy! Try to avoid bringing jewelry that can be easily damaged by any of these elements, or pieces that you would be completely devastated if you lost. Although it may not happen, it is better to avoid bringing that family heirloom than to lose it in the surf. Plus, beach boudoir photography is supposed to be fun! If you spend all of your time worrying, you won't have as much time to enjoy yourself and the experience. 

 

Hats

We have had clients rock hats during their pin-up photoshoots in our photography studio, why wouldn't we want them in our beach boudoir photography images? A wide-brimmed hat can give a delightfully retro feel, while a baseball cap is very girl-next-door sexy. If you want a fun vibe, try a fedora! The possibilities are endless! As with beach boudoir photography jewelry, make sure to bring a hat that you don't mind getting wet and/or sandy. Bonus: hats don't only add a nice visual aspect to your on-location Galveston boudoir photography session, they also keep the sun out of your face!

 

After Beach Boudoir Photography

Congrats! You absolutely rocked your Galveston boudoir photography beach photoshoot. You looked amazing, your images will be fabulous, now all you need to do is drive home. For some people, that means a couple of minutes. For others, that means hours and hours. Don't you wish you had a change of clothes and maybe a towel? Here are some things we recommend bringing for after your beach boudoir photography experience with Warwick Boudoir.

 

Towel

After a day at the beach, it is basically impossible to not be wet and sandy. Though you may not need it during your photoshoot, you will be thankful for a towel after your beach boudoir photography session! Use it to dry off, brush the sand off of you, to sit on in the car, whatever you would like. Just don't forget it! 

 

Change of Clothes

When people see beach photoshoots, they tend to romanticize them. Beach boudoir photos look effortless and beautiful. I don't know about you, but after being on the beach for a while I feel icky. To combat that feeling, don't forget a change of clothes! This is especially important for clients who have a bit of a drive ahead of them. After all, who wants to sit in wet, sandy clothes? Whether they are pajamas or a sundress, make sure it is something you are comfortable in. It will make the drive so much more comfortable for you!

 

Bag for Wet Clothes

During your beach boudoir photography experience, you will probably get wet. This means that you will have wet clothes. Bringing a bag to contain those items helps you keep everything together, as well as minimize possible damage to electronics, leather seats, etc. from water leakage. 

 

Shower Supplies

While we will not have access to a shower after our beach boudoir photography extragavanza, many beaches do have shower areas. If you're dreading the drive home, bring some shower supplies. This is especially important if you're trying to keep your beach boudoir photoshoot a secret! Though you may be able to explain the swimsuit, how can you explain your stunning makeup and hairstyling? 

 

All Day:

As I was writing this list, I found that some items appeared in each and every section. Instead of repeating myself over and over, I decided to make another section! Here are some items we recommend keeping handy during your entire beach boudoir photography experience. 

 

Snack

I've said this before, and I'll say it again: do not starve yourself before a boudoir photoshoot. This is especially important when it comes to beach boudoir photography. Posing is hard enough in our airconditioned Houston boudoir photography studio, adding the sun and heat makes it even more difficult. If you choose not to eat on top of that, it could greatly affect the outcome of your beach boudoir photos. Plus, this is supposed to be fun! I don't know about you, but I get grumpy when I don't eat. An empty stomach on a hot beach is not my idea of a good time. Make sure to eat before your photoshoot to avoid feeling lightheaded. Most of our clients work up quite an appetite during their photoshoots, so a snack mid-session is an excellent idea! Finally, a snack for the ride home is always a good idea. You'll be hungry, proud, and probably craving some salt. 

 

Shoes

When thinking about beach boudoir photography, many people envision soft, white sand. However, that isn't always the case! Most beaches have rocks, sharp shells, seaweed, and hot sand. Make sure to bring a pair of shoes to protect your feet that are quick and easy to put on. I know we usually recommend against flip-flops for Houston boudoir photos, but since you'll already be nice and sandy for your beach boudoir photos, it is okay that your feet won't be kept spotless! 

 

Water

When it comes to beach boudoir photography, the importance of water cannot be overstated. Not only does drinking plenty of water help your skin achieve that flawless glow, you will probably be very thirsty after your photoshoot. You will be spending hours in the hot sun with salty air and water, and dehydration is a real risk. Instead of letting the effects of dehydration dampen your beach boudoir photography experience (dizzyness, headache, nausea), take the preventative step and make sure to bring (and drink!) plenty of water.

The thing we love the most about boudoir-style photography is how it helps women to feel more empowered by encouraging them to feel beautiful and alluring in their own skin. We want to further help you to become a strong, empowered woman by offering you a few tips on how to be true to yourself.

1. Learn to Love Yourself

One of the reasons why women love our Houston boudoir photography sessions is that when they see their photographs, they realize that they are truly beautiful, no Photoshop necessary. They start to feel like they can really love themselves as they are. If you want to become empowered, you will need to learn to love yourself for who you are. Advocate for yourself and embrace yourself, flaws and all.

 

2. Spend Time Alone

Our Houston boudoir photographers believe that it's important for every woman to spend time by herself. When you are alone, you are able to discover who you are — your likes, your dislikes and everything in between.

3. Be a Good Friend

Build up your support system by being a good friend. Take time to listen to your friends, comfort them in hard times and celebrate with them in good. Don't just call when you need to talk; remember that they may need to work through something they don't feel comfortable reaching out about.

4. Pursue Your Passions

Your talents and skills are uniquely yours, and you should employ them to make yourself happy and make the world a better place. Pursuing her passion led Sheryl Warwick to create Warwick Boudoir, and now it is Houston's premier boudoir-style photography studio.

5. Learn To Say No

"No" is a complete sentence. Use it when you are uncomfortable, when you are considering overextending yourself and whenever else you need to. Do not back down from "no." You have every right to say it and mean it.

6. Do What Feels Right

Part of being true to yourself is doing what feels right. If your gut is telling you to do one thing and not another, trust it.

7. Watch and Read Positive Things

Our pinup photographers believe that it's important for strong women to consume positive media. We are shaped by the things that we watch and read, and it's far better to consciously shape your life in a positive direction than to let garbage sneak in.

8. Don't Lose Sight of Who You Are

Whether you're in a relationship, on a job or just hanging out with your girlfriends, don't lose sight of who you are. It can be all too easy to bend to avoid conflict, but in doing so, we begin to be less and less authentic to ourselves and our needs and desires.

As you may have read in our blog here, Warwick Boudoir Photography is going to the beach! We are headed to do some beach boudoir photography in Galveston, Texas in less than a month. Contact us at info@warwickboudoir.com to book your beach boudoir experience!

 

Whether you are joining us for Galveston boudoir photography, considering joining us, or even entertaining the possibility of doing a beach boudoir photography session at a distant point in the future, it is never to early to start preparing and picking beach lingerie!

 

Here are 10 of our top picks of beach lingerie for beach boudoir photography. 

 

Tank Top and Panties

A tank top and panties is the perfect beach lingerie to begin your beach boudoir photography session. Typically our Houston boudoir photography sessions take place in our 3,300 square foot private studio, so privacy isn't a concern. Although we have access to a private beach, our September Galveston boudoir photography will be outdoors, so you will feel a bit more exposed and we cannot guarantee complete privacy. A tank top and panties is the perfect beach boudoir lingerie because it offers plenty of coverage while still giving off a sweet yet sexy girl next door vibe. Tip: To take this  look up a notch, wear neon panties or a bra to complete your beach boudoir outfit or go braless! We will probably have you in the water at least a little bit, so a peek of color under a tank top is super fun and flirty. If you're extra bold, skip the bra! 

 

Denim Cut-Offs

You may not have legs like Daisy, but denim cut-off shorts are the perfect beach lingerie for beach boudoir photography! They can be as short or as long as you would like, so you can have as much or as little coverage as you are comfortable with. You can pair them with anything from button-up shirts to nothing up top, which makes them the perfect beach lingerie. They create a stunning girl-next-door look that can be anything from super sweet to stunningly sultry. Tip: A pair of unbuttoned denim shorts with some bright, lacy lingerie peeking out is the perfect sexy look for beach boudoir photography! 

 

Sheer Top

We love sheer pieces both in and out of our Houston boudoir photography studio. However, on the beach they are extra special! A sheer top over a lacy bra (or only panties if you're daring!) is an excellent choice of beach lingerie. Not only do they flow beautifully in the breeze, they also add a stunning touch of femininity and elegance to beach boudoir photography. 

 

Bikini

Bikinis are the perfect beach lingerie! Not only are they something that (most) women have experience with, but you don't have to worry about getting them wet! When looking for a bikini for beach boudoir photography, you may want to skip your usual choices and go with something a little bit skimpier. While your regular bikinis may need to keep everything covered while surfing or going down a waterslide, your beach boudoir bikinis only need to look fabulous! Bikinis with embellishment like stones or jewelry can be fun and add an elegant, edgy vibe while fringe and cutouts are flirty and fun. 

 

Swimsuit Cover-Up

I know we discussed sheer beach lingerie earlier, but a swimsuit coverup is perfect for beach boudoir photography! Think loose weave crochet tops, plunging necklines, and pretty details. Cover-ups are perfect beach lingerie becase they are comfy, flattering, and are made to be worn on the beach, so you won't ruin them! If you pick an opaque piece, make sure you pick one that is nice and snug. Without sheerness that showcases your figure, a loose top can add the appearance of weight where there isn't any! 

 

Bra and Panties

How could I talk about beach lingerie without mentioning one of our favorite boudoir photography lingerie? Bra and panty sets are perfect for beach boudoir photography! Not only are they something all women are comfortable with, they allow you to choose your own coverage! If you want a super skimpy lace bra, perfect! If you're leaning more towards a full coverage set, great! Even if you don't select a super revealing set, the fact that you are wearing lingerie outdoors will drive any man wild. Keep in mind that certain bra and panty sets are dry clean only. While they may look fabulous, be warned that they may be ruined if you get them wet. If that doesn't bother you, go for it! If you have a specific look in mind, it would be worth it to get that perfect shot in the perfect lingerie. 

 

Cardigan

This may just be my nerdy side showing, but I love the look of a cardigan with denim cut-offs as beach lingerie for beach boudoir photography. A cardigan over a pretty bra gives a soft, fall-inspired look, while an unbuttoned cardigan over bare skin gives a super sultry vibe. 

 

Sheer, Flowing Dress

I mentioned sheer tops as beach lingerie above, but I thought sheer dresses deserved their own category! We have used pieces like this in several of our in-studio boudoir photography sessions, but there is something about beach boudoir that makes a dress seem even more feminine and etheral. If you have an old prom, bridesmaid, for formal dress you don't mind never wearing again, bring it! Though not the traditional trash the dress photography session, your dress will probably be ruined. However, the images will totally be worth it! Go for either a sheer or slinky dress. The ideal type is form fitted on top and flowy on the bottom. Try to avoid "poof" as it can give the appearance of extra weight on even the smallest frame. 

 

Jeans

There is something about the perfect pair of jeans that can make anyone look and feel amazing. They're comfy, they're flattering, and they're perfect for beach boudoir photography! You can pair them with a sheer top, a cardigan, a bra, a bikini top, or nothing at all. 

 

Nothing!

This may be difficult, but wearing nothing but sand is a surefire way to get some super sultry beach boudoir photos. The best part is that you don't actually have to be naked. We will use posing and lighting to give an implied nude look without breaking any laws! To get a nude look, bring in skimpy, form fitting pieces. The smaller the straps, the easier they are to hide. Strapless bras and swimsuits are the best!
