Shoot ideas


Over the past ten or so years, the concept of body positivity has grown increasingly popular. Women of all ages and body types are encouraged in contemporary styles to not just feel comfortable in their bodies but to love them; and feel proud.

If you’re looking to celebrate a special occasion, build a portfolio, or simply get more in touch with your body, a boudoir shoot is a great option for you. 

However, the prospect of professional photography can be daunting if you don’t have any photography ideas. This article will walk you through some great ideas for boudoir photos. 

Before Your Shoot

Before you even think about how any individual photo is going to work out, it’s helpful to figure out what the aesthetic for your shoot will be. 

Consider your features and the types of lingerie and other items that you would like to wear. While it can be fun to try something new, it can make you feel comfortable to take something you enjoy and make it sexy. 

Understand the basics of colour theory, and consider how different colours relate to each other. From here, you can pick out a colour palette that will help your photos pop.

1. Go Nude

The stereotypical boudoir is an option to show off a piece of lingerie. However, with the correct hand placement and use of scenery/ props, you can create wonderful, tasteful boudoir photos nude. 

2. Bridal Boudoir  

Do you dream of surprising your soulmate on your special day? Then you might want to consider a bridal shoot. 

Bridal boudoir is perfect for those entering the next phase of their life. It’s a beautiful and symbolic gift to your soulmate and a commitment to develop a beautiful relationship with your body. 

3. Album Cover

Are you a musician? Then consider bringing your musical instrument/ persona to your boudoir photoshoot. 

More than ever, strong female musicians like Phoebe Bridgers are showing that it’s possible to stay sexy and talented at the same time. 

Who knows, you might even get an album cover out of your shoot. 

4. The Bath

Other than the bed, there’s no more intimate place out there than a bath. Consider taking your boudoir shoot to the bath to create a unique, luxurious feeling. 

If you want, you can even fill your bath with rose petals to heighten the romance. Our beautiful claw foot tub with milk and rose petals is the perfect way to end your shoot.

5. Bring a Friend

Do you have a best friend/ partner who’s also interested in a boudoir shoot? Boudoir doesn’t need to be a solo activity. Consider doing a friends shoot together. 

Shine in Your Boudoir Shoot

A boudoir shoot is a great way to not only show off your body but to experience a deeper relationship with it. Consider the above options for the boudoir shoot of your dreams.
