Boudoir // For the Nervous Girl
"I am interested in doing a Boudoir Session for my boyfriend/fiance/husband/myself but I'm really nervous & not sure if I can do it!"I hear this all the time from my girls.I want to help to give you a peace of mind when booking a Boudoir Session.
I have recently did a mini boudoir session myself, right before I slipped into my wedding dress with my photographer.I can say, I know how you girls feel!
1. "I AM NOT SURE HOW COMFORTABLE I WILL BE IN LINGERIE!"
Just because we are doing a boudoir shoot doesn't mean you have to be naked or even half naked. You can be as clothed as you want to be. I have had girls in the past bring their wedding dress and be sexy in that by unzipping it or having a strap hang down.
You can be sexy in one of his shirts or in a sexy dress you have.
For all my boudoir sessions I have my girls start out with being as clothed as they want with their least skimpy outfit choice. This is usually a perfect warm up for them & help them to get more confident.
He thinks you're beautiful in anything...
2. "I DON'T KNOW HOW TO POSE OR BE LIKE A VICTORIA'S SECRET MODEL!"
Girl, why do you think I'm here! I will guide you along the whole time. Overall though, I don't like posey posed photos. I like movement & natural gestures within the photos. I believe if you are comfortable & feel natural the pictures will be amazing just like you.
3. "WILL MY PICTURES BE PRIVATE"
Of course! I will never post anywhere unless you give me signed permission. We sign a contract together stating if I can share your pics. Also, if you are trying to keep this private from your man then I am very good at keeping secrets till it is time to show.
4. "DO GUYS REALLY LIKE TO GET BOUDOIR PHOTOS AS A GIFT?"
Heck yeah! Every guys reaction that I have heard about has been nothing but shock & awe. Every man was not expecting it & was blown away with the pictures of his bombshell woman.
5. "I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO WEAR OR BRING?"
I have a lingerie guide of beautiful unique places to buy lingerie. When choosing just bring whatever makes you feel beautiful & confident. Also bring heels, wedding veil, or garter if you want!
6. "I DON'T HAVE A PERFECT BODY!"
Who does, really! Your man thinks you are beautiful & he wants to see you the way you are. I have photographed women of all sizes & they always look their best. I will touch up the pics slightly just to lessen qualities that you are insecure about & to enhance your favorite parts about yourself. Overall though, just slight touch up editing I don't change who you are or your natural form.
7. "WHAT ARE MY ALBUM CHOICES?"
My 2nd package includes 2 accordion albums (1 for him + one for you). These are small albums that you can hide in a drawer easily. If you prefer other sizes & styles that is possible too! You can switch out the accordion albums for 1 bigger album. We can discuss the best options for you!
Love, Ivy xo
