Boudoir photography can be a powerful and transformative experience for many women. It allows them to embrace their sensuality, celebrate their bodies, and feel confident and beautiful in their own skin. However, it can also be intimidating and scary to step in front of the camera, especially if you are not feeling confident in yourself. And especially in front of a complete stranger, like me!!
Here are some tips to help boost your self-confidence before and during your BombShell boudoir photoshoot:
Set your own goals for the photoshoot. Instead of trying to meet someone else’s standards of beauty, focus on what you want to achieve with the photos. Maybe you want to celebrate your body after having a baby, or commemorate a special occasion, or just feel sexy and empowered. By setting your own intentions, you can focus on what matters to you and feel more in control of the process.
Choose a photographer who makes you feel comfortable. Boudoir photography requires a high level of trust and vulnerability, so it is important to choose a photographer who you feel comfortable with. Look for someone who has experience in boudoir photography and who has a professional and respectful approach. Check out their website, instagram, and other social media. Read over past client reviews. One of the many reasons I do phone consults with all my clients is to allow them to get to know me and for me to get to know them. It also helps to calm clients nerves a little and helps them to feel more comfortable with me before they even book their session.
Prepare yourself mentally and physically. Take care of yourself leading up to the photoshoot by getting enough sleep, eating well, and exercising. These habits will help you feel more energetic and positive. You can also try some relaxation techniques, such as deep breathing or meditation, to calm your nerves and focus your mind.
Wear something that makes you feel good. Choose an outfit or lingerie that makes you feel sexy and confident. If you are not sure what to wear, I can always provide guidance or suggestions. My lingerie guide is sent after you book your session and will go over all the tips and tricks to styling your session. If you do not feel like buying your own lingerie, my client closet has over 300 pieces in sizes small to 5XL and you are more than welcome to wear any of the outfits from it!
Remember that boudoir photography is about celebrating your unique beauty and empowerment. Don’t worry about perfection – embrace your imperfections and let your personality shine through. With a little preparation and self-care, you can feel confident and beautiful during your boudoir photoshoot.
