Boudoir Photography: An Art Form Worth Pouting For

The term boudoir is a word with dual translations—as a noun, it’s a lady’s bedroom, and as a verb, it means to pout in French—and boudoir photo shoots draw on both definitions. Photographers frequently combine the lacy underthings and silky sheets of a bedchamber with coquettish poses filtered through a dreamy, soft focus.

Different settings, equipment, outfits, and occasions breed infinite variability into boudoir photography, but certain rules of thumb can help subjects get ready for their date with the lens. Although some preshoot primping—such as mani-pedis, false eyelashes, and hairstyling appointments—can pay big dividends, most photographers discourage preparatory tanning and are particularly wary of spray tanning, as the camera and lights can exaggerate any orange tint in the tanning solution. Instead, many boudoir specialists recommend an all-over application of lotion or moisturizer before hitting the set.

When it comes to wardrobe, the famously slimming properties of black and other dark hues can help minimize certain parts of the body, whereas white and lighter colors can have the opposite effect. Regardless of what’s worn during the shoot, virtually all studios ask clients to arrive wearing loose clothing to prevent straps and seams leaving marks on the skin.
