How to prepare for your Boudoir Photography Session

The more I shoot boudoir photography, and work with women for their lovely lingerie photo shoots, I find myself wanting to remind them of a few tips on how to help better prepare for their session. In my recent post on TIPS FOR A SUCCESSFUL BOUDOIR SESSION, I explained in detail 10 steps to better your boudoir photography session. Again, there are always things I am adding to help women have the BEST BOUDOIR PICTURES ever =) In no particular order…

1. Being on-time or a bit early: One thing that I can not stress enough is to get to your session on-time. Some days, we are back to back with bookings… If clients are late, that eats in their time to have the best possible session for their dollar.

2. Hair and makeup are not a ‘No’ option. If you’re planning to look and feel like a Victoria’s Secret model, TREAT YOURSELF girl and go all out!

3. Wrinkled outfits… stuffed in a bag. Ekkkk! You don’t want to look super sexy with your hair and makeup done, and have wrinkled lingerie. Seeing this pains me. It never looks classy. Come with your silk and satin nicely pressed. You will look and feel much better.

4. Drink plenty of water.

5. Be open to poses and ideas and have FUN!

Glamour Session | Classy Boudoir Photography

To ring in the holidays, we wanted to share a very special session with you! Our heart and soul is to make women feel beautiful on the outside as they they do on the inside. When T agreed we could share a few images from her glamour session, we were absolutely thrilled! Not all sessions with Green Lace Boudoir are in lingerie. For this particular session, our client opted for more of a sexy ‘Glamour feel’. Some clients want to have the enjoyment and freedom to share their images on social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter. These turned out very sexy-classy and worthy of showing off!

May we also take this time to send our appreciation and gratitude! If it wasn’t for your trust, support, word of mouth, and encouragement, we don’t know where we would be today. For this, we are deeply thankful for you! Wishing you a season of love and laughter!! xoxo Jan

D’s Green Lace Boudoir Shoot

God has given me the ability to see beauty in EVERY woman. Every women deserves to feel lovely and special. D contacted me about doing a boudoir session after losing her soul-mate and dear husband of 20 years. She mentioned that she was interested in a boudoir session for herself; that she had been ‘widowed for 4 years, 8 months, and would like to boost her self esteem with something to give some hope.’ You have no idea how much of an honor it is to work with these women, make them feel beautiful, sexy, and comfortable in their skin in all stages of life! How completely humbling for these ladies to choose us as their boudoir photographer!! Ladies, you are a blessing more than you know. xoxo May you be inspired and blessed with D’s story below:

“Growing up as a young girl, I was a very insecure child. Confidence eluded me. I had friends at school and church but self image was something that I struggled with through my adulthood. When I married my best friend and soul-mate,  he gave me the confidence to feel beautiful from the inside out. Then on February 25, 2008 my world, as I knew it, changed forever. My husband of 20 years died suddenly of a heart attack. Our marriage wasn’t perfect, but we were perfect for each other. One of the infinite things a widow must face is that she is suddenly alone and solely responsible for herself – from the inside out.  It is easy to find other ways to occupy your mind and time so you do not have to face your grief. As I have been on my journey of healing, I realize that it is up to myself to keep my own spirits lifted.  There are many ways to keep yourself busy, but lifting your own spirit can be a challenge.

Most recently, I decided that it was time to take another step toward healing. Becoming widowed did not mean that I lost my ability to continue to be the woman my husband saw in me. In his memory, and for my own self esteem, I decided to have “boudoir” photos done of myself. My excitement grew as I began to make selections of what to wear, what accessories to use and then made an appointment to have my makeup done prior to the photo session. On the day of my photo session, I was extremely nervousBut Jan graciously built my confidence with her professional way of staging each shot to make me look on the outside like I felt on the inside.  What mattered most to me during this photo session was that the results of each picture showed the love I carry in my heart – for others but also for myself.  When I reviewed the photos, I was amazed at how well Jan had captured the essence of my heart.  Now, when I look at my photos, I am reminded that I am special and beautiful.  Thank you Jan for helping to capture the spirit, heart and soul of what being a woman means to me.” ~D
