Today, I want to focus on boudoir photography in particular. When thinking about booking a boudoir photo shoot you may feel nervous and not sure it’s something you can do. But for woman who go though with having one, time and time again they describe the experience as incredibly empowering.
It’s an opportunity to celebrate your body and your confidence, and to create beautiful, intimate images that you’ll cherish for a lifetime.
The key to a successful boudoir photo shoot is finding the right photographer. You want someone you feel comfortable around, who will help you feel at ease during the shoot, and who will capture you in the most flattering light possible.
If you’re looking for a boudoir photographer in Toronto, I recommend speaking on the phone with the photographer who’s work you are drawn to. This is why I offer FREE consultations. It’s important for me to understand why you want a session, what style (sensual, romantic, risky) and your level of comfort in how much skin you want to reveal. It’s also important you get a sense of how I work and make sure it suits your personailty and needs.
Once you’ve found your dream photographer, it’s important to prepare for your boudoir photo shoot so you can feel as comfortable and confident as possible. Here are a few tips to make your photo shoot day less stressful:
Arrive on time. Showing up late can cause unnecessary stress and anxiety. Give yourself enough time so you get settled and ready for the shoot without stress.
Wear What Makes You Feel Good Choose outfits that make you feel confident and beautiful. Try everything on beforehand to make sure it fits well and looks great on you. Bring backup options just in case.
Communication is everything. Your photographer is there to help you feel comfortable and get the best possible shots. Don’t be afraid to communicate any concerns or requests you have, whether it’s a specific pose or a need for a break.
Remember, your boudoir photo shoot is all about you. Embrace your body and your confidence, and enjoy the experience. And if you’re looking for a boudoir photographer in Toronto, call or email me.
