What’s Included in a Professional Boudoir Photoshoot?

Boudoir photography is a unique, memorable, and intimate style of photography. A boudoir photoshoot includes the professional photographer’s time and expertise before, during, and after the session to capture boudoir photos, as well as special touches like styling advice or assistance from a professional hair and makeup artist.

Like any other artist, Boudoir Photographers have different signature styles and specialize in different aesthetics or categories. Not all Boudoir Photographers are the same, and neither are the studios! You’ll want to do your research when it comes to booking a boudoir session so you can find a photographer and studio that can provide you with exactly what you’re looking for.

What’s included in a Professional Boudoir Photoshoot?

Boudoir Photographers can vary by years of experience, specialties, what they include in their sessions, and at what price point. However, from every Professional Boudoir Photographer, you should be able to expect the utmost professionalism, respect, compassion, and communication throughout the entire process as well the use of professional photography equipment and lighting.

There are also many different styles of Boudoir Photography Studios. Some are dark glamour, and some have different sets included such as beds or bathtubs but it should always be a private and comfortable shooting space. You’ll want to find a highly-rated studio by reading reviews to ensure that the studio has a strong online presence and receives positive feedback.

You’ll also want to consider whether or not the studio includes professional hair and makeup in the session. Boudoir photography can be daunting, but with a professional makeup artist and hairstylist by your side, you’ll feel even more confident and beautiful. This will show in your photos and help you to relax and enjoy the experience! 

Some studios also have what is known as a “client closet”. These are pieces that the studio has available for you to use during the boudoir session, whether it’s lingerie, accessories, or props. You’ll also be able to have a pre-shoot consultation for wardrobe styling and session planning to prepare you for your boudoir photoshoot.

The Photoshoot Experience

The best thing about hiring a professional photographer for your boudoir photoshoot is having their expertise throughout the session! The photographer plays a big role in directing and posing you to bring your vision to life, so it’s important to pick a boudoir photographer that provides a private, professional and welcoming studio to feel safe and inspired throughout your experience.

A boudoir session allows you to play, have fun, indulge in self love, release any insecurities,  and express yourself in a way you may not have been able to before. You’ll be involved throughout the entire session, and you’ll choose your favorite shots and poses to curate your album with after your photographer has been able to expertly edit and retouch the final images.
