First of all – Building Trust and Ambiance:

Boudoir photography is much more than just snapping pictures. It’s about creating an INTIMATE and SAFE environment where your client feels comfortable and confident.

Here’s how to ensure a successful shoot:

  • Connection: before anything else, GET TO KNOW YOUR CLIENT! Understand their comfort level, what they want to achieve, and any insecurities they might have. Open communication is necessary to build trust and create a positive experience.
  • Pre-Shoot Consultation: Don’t underestimate the power of planning. Discuss outfit options, locations, and poses beforehand. This will set expectations, prepare your clients, and give them a chance to ask questions.

Second of all – Technical Considerations

Lighting is crucial in photography!

While professional lighting setups exist, beginners can achieve great results with:

  • Natural Light: Look for locations with diffused light from large windows or soft shade outdoors. Artificial light can be added later for specific effects if necessary.
  • Flattering Poses: Learn basic posing techniques that accentuate the body in a positive light. Guiding your client into flattering positions will boost their confidence and ensure they look and feel their best. (check out our free guide “POSING LIKE A PRO”)
