Are you gearing up for a boudoir photo shoot and feeling confident with your lingerie? That’s great! But have you thought about adding some personal touches to your shoot with the right props? Including props that are meaningful to you or your partner can add a sentimental and unique touch to your boudoir photos. In this article, we’ll discuss some great accessory ideas to enhance your boudoir photo shoot, so you can feel even more confident and beautiful. Let’s dive in!
First up, let’s talk about menswear. Yep, that’s right, we’re talking about clothing for the guys! If you’re planning a couples boudoir session, then you might want to consider bringing some of your man’s favorite items to the shoot. His shirt, tie, or even his favorite sports jersey can add a touch of masculinity and intimacy to your photos. These pieces also look so sexy on their own draped around you or as props.
Now, onto jewelry. Jewellery is another great way to add some flair to your photos. Statement pieces like chunky necklaces or earrings can draw the eyes straight in and make the image pop. Or, if you want to highlight a specific part of your body, consider a long string of pearls draped over your back or the girls. I also have a good selection of necklaces and body jewelry in the studio you can borrow!
And let’s not forget about heels! They’re a must-have for any boudoir shoot. Heels can help elongate your legs, tone your calves, and give you a more sensual look. It is a whole new level that can make you feel like a total bombshell. So make sure to bring a pair that makes you feel confident and sexy.
If you’re into sports, why not bring some of your favorite sports equipment to the shoot? A hockey stick, basketball, or football can add a touch of athleticism to your photos. And who knows, you might end up with some really cool action shots that capture your passion for sports. I’m still waiting for a client to bring in a jersey and ball so we can play!
If you want to add a touch of elegance to your boudoir photo shoot, consider bringing a robe. A full, luxurious robe can add a touch of glamour to your photos and help you feel like a queen. And if you want to go for something a little more whimsical, a tulle robe can add a touch of playfulness to your photos.
This robe was crazy and the feathers were falling off like crazy! I suggest the fur that doesn’t come out or tulle!
If you’re a book lover, you can bring some of your favorite books to the shoot. You can use them as props and create some really cool, casual book-loving photos.
Video game equipment
And if you’re a gamer, why not bring some headphones or video game equipment to the shoot? It’s all about capturing your personality and your interests.
At the end of the day, a boudoir photo shoot is all about you. It’s about capturing your beauty, your confidence, and your sensuality. So, bring whatever accessories make you feel amazing and help you express yourself. Whether it’s menswear, jewelry, sports equipment, or books, make sure you bring something that truly represents who you are. And remember, boudoir photography is all about having fun and feeling comfortable. So, don’t be afraid to let loose and show off your personality. The more relaxed and comfortable you feel, the better your photos will turn out.
