Those who sign up for boudoir photo shoots experience a wide range of feelings as they walk in the door, from enthusiasm to apprehension. It’s for this reason that the experienced photographers at Boudoir Creatives have developed a secret icebreaker, which they employ at the start of each shoot, to erase inhibitions and get the subject, stylist, and picture-taker on the same page. Together, they develop a concept during a pre-shoot consultation. Though traditional boudoir-style shoots with lingerie are available, the staff may also propose inventive themes such as sexy shoots at outdoor locations, model shoots in the style of Maxim, and studio shoots with creative body paint or in the style of fine-art nudity.
The photographers then direct their models in sessions for individuals, couples, brides, and groups in full-day boudoir marathons. During each shoot, they highlight their subjects’ natural curves using dramatic lighting, soft focus, and neon arrow signs while establishing an atmosphere to put them at ease. After most shoots, photographers translate the best images into prints or full-colour photo albums.
