Boudoir can be a gift for a significant other; sexy pictures that remind them of the physical component of your bond. But it's just as much about body positivity and celebrating yourself. It can be a real gift, especially if you've never seen yourself through the eyes of a kind stranger.
You don't have to wait until you lose a few pounds or feel extra-confident about yourself, either. Boudoir can be done at any time. There are even exciting subgenres to explore, like bridal boudoir, "dudoir" for men, and maternity boudoir to celebrate motherhood and pregnancy!
Since boudoir is a very intimate encounter, it pays to choose the right venue. One that's private and comforting yet artistic enough to contribute to the story you're telling. Atlanta has some of the best boudoir photographers in the country. Most of them prefer to work in photography studio
spaces designed for boudoir. Here, you'll have props like vintage furniture, light modifiers to diffuse or enhance natural light, plugs for light stands or cameras, and other elements.
A professional boudoir studio will have a changing room, a makeup area, outfits if you don't bring your own, and a hair station complete with stylists to have you looking your best. It's as much a spa day as a photoshoot. You'll feel like a model or celebrity before you even set foot in front of the camera.
Boudoir photographers will also work in hotel rooms, on rooftops
with skyline views, in natural parks like Stone Mountain…Anywhere you can have a session away from prying eyes. The venue you choose will depend on your comfort level and the kind of story you want to tell through boudoir!
Ready to dive in for an Atlanta boudoir session? Just remember a few things beforehand. First, everyone is nervous, even if it's their second or third boudoir session. Nerves are natural so relax into it. Boudoir is about authenticity and self-celebration, after all. So include all of it and you'll find yourself relaxing soon enough.
Boudoir is also more than just generic sexy poses. Your photographer will help you find your range with poses that are natural for you. It may take a few minutes but you'll be surprised how amazing you look.
We also recommend looking through the portfolio of your chosen artist beforehand. Pick out a few styles that best match your hopes for the session. The photographer will be able to easily recreate it; in fact it will help her to have an idea in mind of exactly what you want. With these tips and the right venue you're sure to have an amazing time during your boudoir photoshoot!
