Is Boudoir Photography for Me?

Boudoir photography works for everyone, regardless of age, size or shape. Are you having trouble making up your mind? Are you nervous or do you lack confidence in your appearance or body? Don’t worry – this sounds about right.

Most of our customers experience the same emotions before their shoot, so you’re not alone.

The aim of boudoir photography is to boost your confidence, discover, work with and highlight your individuality and make you recognise that you’re stunning, yep, just the way you are.

Your Boudoir Photography Experience

During your boudoir photography session, you’ll be in the capable hands of two experienced professionals. Kristina and I have worked together on many shoots and specialise in putting you at your ease.

Some kind words from ladies we’ve photographed

‘My initial slight apprehensions about having boudoir photos taken quickly evaporated once inside the studio’

 

‘I was nervous at first, but time flew by during the shoot and I realised I was actually enjoying myself!’

 

‘I really enjoyed my photo shoot, I was very nervous before we started but Andrea & Tim immediately put me at ease’

 

‘I was so pleased with the results, they made me feel really beautiful.’

‘Elegant and tastefully executed, Kristina & Tim have a special touch. They made me feel completely at ease in the studio so we were able to experiment with various poses and I was pleasantly surprised with the outcome. Not only has he made me look great, but I now feel great about my body too. I will treasure the pictures I have and am even happy to show them off to my friends.

 

‘This experience gives you the chance to be a model for one special day, but the photos you have will make you feel sexy forever.

 

‘The whole experience gave me a real confidence boost and I would definitely do a shoot again with Tim.’

Boudoir FAQs

How will my shoot work?

The shoot is flexible and normally includes two sets of images taken – i.e. two different outfits/backgrounds. Usually we start with our purpose-styled boudoir set, and we’ll shoot a set with a studio background as well. You will have the option to do “how to look good naked” artistic nude photos too.

If you want to shoot on location, get in touch to discuss the details in advance.

We’ll talk before and during about the style of photos, so you’ll never have to show more than you’re comfortable with – or alternatively you won’t miss out on doing the nude shots you’ve psyched yourself up for!

What can I expect on the day?

You will be greeted by me, your boudoir photographer Tim and your personal make-up artist Kristina. You can have a glass of bubbly or nice cup of tea when you arrive, before deciding on your session, makeup and hair.

Your makeover is also a good time to chat and ask any questions about the shoot, but also to make you feel relaxed and at ease. Kristina will be available throughout your photo session to touch up your makeup and help with posing.

What should I bring to wear?

There are all sorts of items you can bring with you, here are a few ideas:

    • Basque or Corset
    • Bra and knickers set
    • Bridal underwear
    • Tiara or veil
    • Bridal shoes
    • Jeans
    • Hats
    • Jewellery
    • Long boots
    • Killer heels
    • Stockings
    • Suspenders
    • Silk dressing gown
    • Football shirt
    • Man’s shirt
    • Man’s tie

     

    Make sure you bring items you are comfortable wearing. Key pieces can be accessorised with jewelry, hats, materials, shoes and vintage pieces.

What else should I think about before my shoot?

Have a think about the photos you like – how do you want to appear? Get some ideas from magazines or the blog. Do you want to shoot in lingerie, or do you want to do some artistic nude shots too?

Before your shoot, don’t forget to wax or shave. It’s best not to fake tan just before your shoot, leave it at least one week before your date. Try on your underwear to make sure you like it and its fits well. If you’re a bride to be, bring some of your wedding accessories and underwear.

Can I change my outfit / hair / makeup during the session?

Yes. You can bring a selection of outfits – typically, we shoot two sets. Kristina will be on hand to restyle your makeup to suit the photographs, (unless you’ve chosen to do your own hair and makeup).

Is a makeover included in the session?

Most ladies take the makeover option – Kristina is a professional makeup artist and will make you look amazing. If you prefer to do it yourself or bring a friend to help that’s fine too, just mention this when booking.

Do you airbrush/Photoshop my photographs?

Yes. All images are retouched using the Photoshop suite, unless you request otherwise. We can smooth skin, remove blemishes, scars and tattoos. Talk to Tim about specifics beforehand or on the day of your photo session.

How do I choose my photos after my shoot?

You are invited back to the studio to view your images and make your choices, or if you’ve travelled a long way we can provide online viewing.

I'm not a 20-year-old size double zero, is it for me??

Yes! Boudoir is for every woman. I’m very experienced in lighting and posing, so will be able to make you look your best, no matter what your age or size.

Who sees my photos?

The only person who will see your photographs will be you, your photographer and your makeup artist. However, if you’d be happy for us to use your images on the website, please tell us!

I am nervous about using a male photographer!

It’s quite normal to be nervous when booking a boudoir session, but we will put you at ease and the session will be at your own pace. I’m a consummate professional, with years of experience, a very relaxed attitude and easy-going manner.

Remember that most people feel nervous at the beginning of their shoot, but all end up looking and feeling amazing. The photos in our gallery are past customers who’ve given us permission to use their pictures.

Where does the session take place?

Most sessions are at my photography studio in Folkestone. However, if you would like to use a hotel, or if your home is suitable (or garden, if private) or another location, this can be arranged. Just ask when you contact us.

Do many people read this far down the FAQ?

We don’t expect so, no.
