10 Boudoir Photography Ideas

Boudoir Photography ideas

     Getting good boudoir photos done is not always easy. If I am sincere, most boudoir photos that I see are very cheesy and not a piece of art. And boudoir photography ideas are not always solid. While you don’t want to settle for any photos, consider the job of picking your photographer and a style you like your priority. 

     Bad posing, miserable choice of light, and ugly editing are just some things where most boudoir photographers fail. I noticed most of the excellent boudoir photographers are Female. It is a significant benefit to the majority of ladies out there. You will feel more comfortable and confident when a female photographer is looking at you through the lens. 

     I am proud and happy to deliver results to my clients, that they admire and comfortable. Getting positive feedback from my girls is the best payback for me. It just makes me happy! However, let’s talk about boudoir photography ideas. Whether you decide to shoot outdoors or indoors there many choices, you will have to make in terms of wardrobe, poses, and photography styles. These boudoir photography ideas might be helpful regardless of the locations you choose.

     It will give your images an extra whimsical effect everybody loves. And to be honest, having a spare prop in your hands will make you more comfortable.

Use the mirror

Using the mirror for the boudoir shoot is a great idea. Keep in mind, not every photographer is capable of pulling this up this setup. And location/ lighting conditions mean a lot!

Shooting at Dawn

Planing a shoot at sunset is a great outdoor option for those who are comfortable with being half-naked. While there is always a possibility of being seen on location, those shots will worth it. 

In a Nutshell

     So here I laid out my most favorite boudoir photography ideas. Based on my experience, you will be able to cover at least 4-5 concepts in a 2-hour session. And many locations can include indoor as well as outdoor options within walking distance. So plan accordingly, and keep in mind, if you have a dark, tiny, crowded apartment photos wont look same as you might have hoped for. I always suggest renting an Airbnb or a hotel room with big windows and lots of spots to shoot. If you are on a budget, think about inviting your girlfriend(s) to share expenses and have fun!
