Tips for the Shoot

  • Boudoir isn’t about being naked, it’s about feeling confident and beautiful in whatever you choose to wear. So you could bring along some matching sets of lingerie, a nightie, boxer shorts, your partner’s shirt (the one you love him wearing), a favourite pair of jeans, or something more tempting or daring….the choice truly is yours.
  • Remember to bring a few options, as well as high-heels (if you wear heels). And don’t forget your favourite accessories and jewellery – like pearls, beads, earrings, etc.
  • Steer away from fake-tan unless it’s done professionally. If you’re getting some sun beforehand watch out for strap marks.
  • Your hands and feet will be visible in the photos, so consider a manicure and pedicure – even if you do this yourself so your nails don’t looked chipped.
  • You will feel more confident if you’re true to yourself so I encourage you to chat to me beforehand or via email about your likes and dislikes. For example, if you’re more of a natural, outdoorsy woman, you might prefer minimal make-up, a soft, frilly nightie and a field full of daisies to a vampy get-up worthy of Lady Gaga. But, if you have a secret fantasy of being a 1930s moviestar or Queen of Burlesque, Dita Von Teese, then I can help you make that a reality on film.
  • On that point, I specifically love doing styled shoots. So if you’d like something with a Shakespearian or a 1930s or 1940s feel (or anything else that resonates with you), please let me know so we can use it to flavour your shoot.
  •  You are welcome to do your own hair and make-up, but if you would like the extra pampering of a professional, feel free to refer to my list of service providers.
  • Most B&Bs and hotels aren’t keen on renting out a room for a couple of hours. Perhaps book a room for the night for yourself, or you and your partner to enjoy after the shoot. (He doesn’t even have to know that you had the shoot done.) If you have beautiful natural light in your home, then shooting there is absolutely fine.
