TOP 10 BOUDOIR PROPS FOR SIZZLING IMAGES ~

Top 10 Boudoir Props to Enhance the Beauty of your Boudoir Photos As explained in our post about the history of boudoir photography, props and accessories started to be incorporated into the images and tasteful photography around the 1940s. The list of boudoir props is endless but we composed a list of our top 10 favorites that are most easily used during glamour photo shoots, but easily accessible. While a boudoir photo of a female with a horse or elephant may create an beautiful image, most of us don’t have horses of elephants conveniently available. Lace or Silk is a stable in boudoir photography. Lace can make any image sexier just by covering the right areas of skin. The tease and anticipation of what is underneath is enough to keep even the most hesitant gazer intrigued. The use of silk is beautiful as it can delicately drape over the female form, accentuating every curve and your natural beauty. In addition, if caught at the right angle, it can even reflect light and catch the glimmer in your eyes. Items representing your significant other’s favorite hobby are becoming more common in glamour photography as a man loves seeing his leading lady…

BRIDAL BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHY AS WEDDING NIGHT GIFTS!!!

Bridal Boudoir Photography There has been a trend for gifting new husbands after the wedding that has become super popular; bridal boudoir photography. Unlike the previous photos and selfies you have sent your significant other, a professional should take your bridal boudoir photos. Many wedding photographers will offer bridal boudoir shoots as an added service, but if your photographer doesn’t offer this service, then most cities offer photographers who specialize in this boudoir photography style. Keep in mind that while these are secret gifts for your new spouse, boudoir is hardly X-rated. Think of it as PG-13 with classic pinup-inspired pictures, or what the professionals call 'implied nudes.' Implied nudes means that while you’re wearing very little (or nothing at all), you don’t show anything either. Picture shots from the back, wrapped in blankets or feather boas and even some photos taken of you on your stomach. Your bridal photographer will be able to advise you on the best poses for your intentions, comfort level and body. But if you want to do nudes that is all OK too!! Remember this is also a gift to yourself!!! You will have these iconic images of yourself forever!! While most boudoir photographers will have…

LINGERIE FOR EVERYBODY ~ LITERALLY

Lingerie for Every Body…Literally! Lingerie is meant to make a woman feel sexier, but what happens if she doesn’t feel sexy in her own skin due to her physical appearance? The solution is quite simple, lingerie! With so many styles, fabrics and cuts there is a lingerie style for every body type that will accentuate what makes you most beautiful and help hide those things you’re less than happy with. Our friends at 3Wishes have a broad array of pretty much every style lingerie imaginable, including an extensive line for plus sized ladies. We’ve composed the 5 most common physical concerns and features that women have and suggested certain lingerie styles that either draw attention to or away those assets as you’d like. If you have less than what they can “washboard abs”, i.e. a midsection you’d rather keep hidden under a hoodie, than these lingerie styles are for you. Look for something that has sheer or lacey materials draping over the midriff. Make sure its not taught but loosely flowing. Even if you hide your tummy, there are plenty other sexy assets to show off. This red baby doll has a soft and comfortable stretch lace bodice with underwire…

EMPOWER YOURSELF WITH A BOUDOIR/PORTRAIT PHOTO SHOOT

Empower Yourself with a Boudoir or Portrait Photo Shoot Society seems overloaded with images and ideas what it means to look perfect, sexy and beautiful. Just because you are not a size 2 or weigh a certain amount doesn’t make you any less beautiful than another person. Beauty is so much more than skin deep; it is our personalities, experiences, self-confidence and outlook on life that truly makes us beautiful. While this concept is often easier said than done, there are many ways to feel beautiful again. Sit up straight and walk with proper posture. There was a study done by the European Journal of Social Psychology that found subjects who sat up straight in their chairs were more confident. Think about it, if boosted confidence is a factor of feeling beautiful and slouching decreases confidence…you should stop slouching! Find the things you love about yourself and focus on those features. When you draw attention away from your “flaws” and focus on your best attributes, you will see your own beauty easier than if you were to focus on your “flaws”. For the record, flaws are only flaws if you make them into something negative. Yes, it is that easy!…

THE PERFECT BOUDOIR CHRISTMAS #GIFT

Buying a Christmas #gift can be tough. And, if you’re not getting your loved one a Boudoir Café photo package, gifting can be even tougher. Lucky for you – we have yet another wonderful #gift solution! (Which works perfectly in tandem with a Boudoir Café photo shoot…) My lovely friend, Carla Vaz de Almeida, makes wonderful, hand-crafted shoes. Her company, Lisbon Shoemakers, is getting attention for its elegance (and its edge) in their one-of-a-kind creations. Like the Boudoir Café, Lisbon Shoemakers is creating a unique, quality and sexy name for itself in the fashion and beauty industry. Carla knows that a pair of heels is about identity. When you look at a shoe you want, you can already see yourself wearing them. Shoes complete an outfit – and more importantly, they complete you. Whatever look you are going for (and whatever aesthetic you feel matches your soul), shoes are always the answer. And, especially for a Boudoir Café photo shoot, you want to be able to really feel yourself. No doubt, Carla’s shoes can be the answer for you. Carla draws her inspiration from her home city of Lisbon, Portugal. Full of culture and tradition but also of light and innovation, the…
