Women are getting more comfortable with their sexuality. Today, being sexy isn’t about being slutty, it’s about empowerment. This new way of thinking has made boudoir and glamour photography more popular.
Boudoir and glamour photography can be as diverse as you want it to be. You an have a soft scene of yourself posing in an unmade bed or bubble bath, bring in a partner or even do an edgy fetish-oriented session. But whatever mood you go for, it’s gotta be sexy!
If you are thinking of doing a sexy shoot, here are some things to keep in mind.
Set the Scene
Boudoir and glamour photography can be edgy or tame. The choice is yours! It can incorporate any theme. It shouldn’t be too hard to think of what direction you want to take it in. Just consider your personal taste and I’m sure your setting will fall into place.
Location, Location, Location
Next you will want to decide on where you want the shoot to take place. You can do a shoot in your bedroom or bathroom or leave it up to a photographer to create a set in a professional studio or in another location.
Preparing Yourself for the Shoot
When the day of the shoot comes, you want to be prepared. Because a lot of your body will be showing, you will want to make sure no unwanted hair is visible. Hair removal treatments should be performed a few days before the shoot. This will give any redness a chance to fade.
Your makeup should be flawless, but the rest if up to you. Do you want a soft, girl next door look? Or would you rather have something dramatic and sophisticated? Whatever it is you are going for, do your best to replicate it. You may even want to call in a professional makeup artist to make sure makeup doesn’t run or fade. This could ruin a picture.
Hair can also be soft and careless or have more of a styled look. You may want to call in a professional here as well. Messy hair can also make a picture less than perfect.
No matter what type of look you are going for, one thing is for sure, you will definitely want to incorporate plenty of lingerie! Sexy lingerie looks can be as simple as a bra and panty set. Thongs are usually considered the sexiest type of panties so wear if you dare!
Body suits, babydoll lingerie, a sexy teddy or a lace bodysuit are also other pieces of lingerie that can work well with your theme. If you decide to make things a bit more exciting, fetish lingerie, BDSM lingerie or bondage lingerie can be suitable choices.
Now that you know how to prepare for your shoot, all that is left to do is have fun! Take your shoot to any limits to make photos you are sure to treasure!
