In my experience, I recommend bringing at least four- five outfits, because more choice is better than less. Try to prepare all the outfits at least a week before the shoot to avoid last minute stress. They should include:
>two matching underwear sets
>one or two tops or t-shirt
>a vest or dress
Lingerie and underwear: Avoid patterns and choose some bright colors that will pop in the pictures and/or a classic black , blue or white. But, most importantly choose items that fit and make you feel like a goddess!
The Classic Underwear Set: I recommend sets because they photograph better than separate pieces. Cheekies are better than larger or smaller undies, because they give you more definition.
The High-Waisted & Vintage: For a little retro look choose high waisted underwear.
The Bra & Bralette: The bra is supported and can be padded. A bralette is, instead, a bra without wires or padded cups. Both photograph well but it really depends on your body shape what looks best for you. Bralettes often have fun backs and they are fun in photos.
The Full Body Piece: The full piece bodies are fun and comfortable. They are also great to hide the stomach, if you are worried about C-section scars, stretch marks and any other issues.
The Corset: Used for centuries to tighten the waist and give support, it is a gorgeous choice for any woman.
Nighties: For a vintage and delicate look.
Robes :They are fun to play with and help cover up if you are a little shy at the beginning of the photoshoots. Robes are also very popular for brides to be, generally in white. (I supply several robes for my clients but if you have one that you bought or have your eye on that you LOVE then by all means bring it!)
Tops: See-through tops are great to play with during the photoshoot as they are revealing, without showing too much. With the light and sunshine they show beautiful curves and allow very artistic creations. Semi transparent lace tops that are see through yet not too revealing, to keep some mystery!
Long Sleeves: If you want to go for season-less images and have a cute and sensual look then bring a winter sweater. If they are off the shoulder, even better! I personally love warm, cosy sweaters to feel cute and sexy.
Shirts: Half revealing shirt? One of his shirts? Why not!
T-Shirts & Tank Tops: There are so many choices! If lingerie is not really your thing or you want to have that "girl next door look", then panties and a tank top will work perfect for you. Some ladies like to wear one of his shirts too.
Dresses: Not all the images have to be revealing to be sexy. Sometime more is less, and you can post at least a few images on social media, worry free!
Shoes: Choose whatever you prefer: high heels that slim your feet and help with posing, boots that give you length, cowboy boots, hipster shoes, trainers or you can just do the whole shoot barefoot!
Jewelry & Accessories
You can “accessorize” a photoshoot with anything you want. Necklaces, earrings, bracelets and rings, but also glasses, masks, scarfs or ties can compliment very well the outfits or the naked poses. Bring a selection if you like and if it is in your style. Flowers are a good option too. Don’t forget your engagement/ wedding ring if you have one.
Using props such as pillows (blankets/sheets, curtains, etc) allow for us to create sensual images that leave more to the imagination.
I tend to use robes at the beginning of all my boudoir sessions and we slowly "lose" the robe as you become more comfortable.
There is no wrong color choice for your garments and no wrong style choice. Find what makes you feel beautiful and rock it!
We can even spend the entire session in one outfit! This is all about you, for you! And you can't go wrong with a little black matching set.
