How to Shop for your Boudoir Session without Breaking the Bank

BoudoirbyMarie-charlestonboudoir-bts-3.jpg

This is all about YOU. Your Boudoir Session is your chance to showcase your own unique style.

There are no rules about what to wear,
only that you must LOVE everything you bring!


You don't need to go shopping for your boudoir shoot unless you want to, and you certainly don't have to spend a fortune to find some great items that you can rock at your shoot! 

My sessions have time for three different outfits and then one nude or "in-the-sheets" look at the end! I do recommend trying to incorporate different styles (lingerie set, bodysuit, clothing piece, etc.) as well as some color, but if you're an all black eeeeverything girl, that's fine too!

Bring whatever you love! Use this as an opportunity to showcase your unique style and personal taste!

Outfit #4: In the sheets...

I also ALWAYS recommend doing a tasteful implied nude or "in-the-sheets" set of shots. It may feel like all of your business is exposed and that your least favorite areas might be more visible, but I promise you that white sheets are some of the most flattering "outfits" that we can work with! Shooting in your birthday-suit makes the images all about YOU and not about cheesy props or what you are wearing.

To me, shooting in between the sheets is the BEST of boudoir.  It's all about showing YOU your most beautiful self.
