What to Wear for Your Boudoir Session | Orlando Boudoir Photographer

You've done it. You've taken the bold step and booked your boudoir session! Cue happy (albeit somewhat nervous) dance! 

...now what?

You've seen the photos on our website for inspiration, you've perused your closet and drawers, and now you're stuck wondering "what the bleep am I going to wear?!" Don't worry girl..we've got you!

Since lingerie is a staple during a boudoir shoot, let's highlight a few things on the topic before thinking outside of the box!

  • New or lightly worn lingerie is best.
  • Always try on everything before you bring it.
  • Wear what YOU feel SEXY in.

And now, let's get creative!

  • Something of HIS/HERS! If you are doing this as a gift for your significant other, bring something you can wear or incorporate of theirs. This can be a uniform, sports jersey, t-shirt, anything you know that has meaning to them and will make his/her jaw drop when he/she sees you making it sexy!
  • Something of YOURS! Bring something that has a special meaning to you, whether it's a necklace, something that represents a hobby you love, or even your favorite coffee mug. Boudoir is a celebration of you so incorporating your something special will make for some extra special photos!
  • Something CASUAL! You would be surprised at how sexy your favorite oversized sweater can be during a boudoir session. Or even a pair of your favorite jeans that make your butt look super cute. Bring in something from your "every day look" and watch how it can be some of the sexiest photos you have seen!
  • Something DRESSY! Do you have a favorite cocktail dress? Bring it! 
  • ACCESSORIES! Don't forget to bring your favorite jewelry, it can really up the sexy for everything else you bring. And don't let it stop at jewelry! Make sure you bring high heels, fishnets, garters, glasses, hats, etc.

There is Only One You | Orlando Boudoir Photographer

It's no secret that I love to mix and match styles in my boudoir sessions. Us women are so diverse, so why limit it to one "mood?" I want you to tap into your sultry side AND your sweet, playful, flirty side! I want your spouse (or whoever is getting this album...even if it's you!) to look through your album and say "yep, there's my Jane!" <--not this client's name. ;)

Boudoir isn't about impersonating magazines or models. It isn't about posing for the camera to be someone else. It is about capturing who you are, loving who are you, embracing who you are, and OWNING who you are. After all...there is only one you in this world. Why would you want to be like someone else when you are rocking being YOU??

Bride to Be | Orlando Boudoir Photographer

How FUN is this client of ours?! I love that she came into the studio full of energy and ready to get her photos taken! 

With each client, I incorporate something new that I haven't done in previous sessions. Something I rarely do is use the bathtub (I'm usually just not a huge fan for some reason), but holy smokes...this girl made me fall in love with that tub all over again! 

I adored her boudoir session, and her husband LOVED his gift! Seriously...tell me what better gift there is for a wedding day for your groom? I bet you can't think of any!

A Little Laughter | Orlando Boudoir Session

What's not to love about this beautiful smile from our lovely client?? She had so much fun during her session, and so did we! 

One of my favorite parts about our boudoir sessions is that we mix in all different moods. Happy, sultry, goofy, flirty, you name it! And this gorgeous girl nailed it!

Fit Momma | Orlando Boudoir Photographer

This session is an oldy, but a goody! As I was poking around through a ton of sessions today, I saw this one and thought WHY HAVEN'T I BLOGGED THIS YET?! 

Girls. Just LOOK at this goddess of a mom. How flipping beautiful is she? I adore her fun personality, and I just remember this session being a total blast. She is for sure an inspiration to me as a fellow momma. My abs have never, ever looked like that. Yeesh! She definitely worked for it, and it shows!

Flirty Boudoir Session | Orlando Boudoir Photographer

This girl though.

She absolutely rocked her boudoir session at the studio! Her emotions, her movements, and her attitude really allowed me to create art for (and with) her! 

But really, one of the things I love is that you absolutely, 100%, do NOT need to know how to pose yourself for the camera. I have a background in dance and modeling, and I am very in-tune with different body types and the best poses and angles for them! If you put a little trust in me, take a deep breath, and just dive right in...you'll be amazed at what we can create!

Adventurous Boudoir Lovely | Orlando Boudoir Photographer

Holy smokes! We're on a role this week with boudoir session features! When our girls give us permission to share their images, we love that it usually starts with "of course you can use the photos! They're classy and elegant!" We are all about tasteful photos, since we know there is a pretty fine line between boudoir and pornography. We definitely do NOT cross that line! ;)

That being said, how.beautiful.is.she? This lovely gal did her session as a gift for her hubby to be, and she even sent me photos from their wedding! They got married at the base of a volcano, with a stunning waterfall in the background. I mean...seriously. What?! She is definitely an adventurous chicky, and we're so happy to have been able to work with her on this boudoir session wedding gift!

Comfy Cozy + Sexy Sassy | Orlando Boudoir Photographer

Let's all take a moment and scroll down to the first picture. Can you say W-O-W!? How friggin' amazing is she here? This boudoir lovely of ours really knocked it out of the park with her session. From the super sassy and sexy outfits, to the ultra-cozy looks, she really nailed it. 

I just LOVED this session. And what made it even more fun is that her sister was there too for back-to-back sessions! They got married months apart and wanted to be there for each other as support systems for their sessions. We are all about bringing a cheerleader (or 2, or 3!) to your session. Whatever it takes to get you feeling like a rockstar! (you know...in addition to me constantly telling you that you are GORGEOUS!).

Oh sweet, sweet lace. How we love thee. And how thee looks SO good on this gorgeous girl! 

Seriously though. We're all about that lace ('bout that lace... -- sing it with me!) and it just makes our hearts flutter when our girls wear it! 

Another groom was very happy to open up a super sweet gift for his bride recently...and well, we couldn't be happier about that!

Couples Maternity Boudoir Session | Orlando Boudoir Photographer

Every once in a while, something different pops up and you just can't turn down the opportunity! For me this time, it was this beautiful couple who wanted to do a maternity session in the studio. er vision was to have the photos be elegant, yet sexy. Maternal, yet still..well..sexy! I think we hit the nail on the head with this one! 

These two are world-travelers, and their baby boy is going to add so much more excitement to their already-exciting lives. I adore them, and I adore these photos! 

Enjoy!

White Rompers and Gorgeous Smiles | Orlando Boudoir Photographer

This girl right here is just.freaking.awesome. I've now had the pleasure of photographing her engagement session, boudoir, AND wedding. I can't say enough what a heart of gold she has. She is one of those people that everyone needs at least one of in their lives, and I'm so glad she's now in mine!

I adore the Lovely Z's bubbly personality and insanely gorgeous smile! Her boudoir session was everything, and she (clearly) rocked it! Thank you so much for letting us share your stunning-self. You're the best!

Sultry and Sweet | Orlando Boudoir Photographer

I am completely obsessed with this boudoir session. She nailed her outfit selections, and she really tapped into her sultry-self for these! I love the combination of sweet and sultry. From the adorable "wifey" t-shirt, to her wedding veil, to the ultra-sexy black lingerie pieces. 

I know her hubby was very fond of his gift from his beautiful bride! ;)

A Simply Sweet Boudoir Session | Orlando Boudoir Photographer

We aren't always able to share more than just a few photos of our girls, but we are still thankful to even be able to do that (always with signed permission of course)! And what I love about this session, face or not, is that you can tell how absolutely sweet she is! Maybe it's the soft pink babydoll lingerie, or just the way she somehow shows her personality through the photos. Either way, I love it! 

For That Special Someone | Orlando Boudoir Photographer

Okay ladies, how many of you have thought "gee, what gift am I going to get my fiance for our wedding?" If you're like me, the thought of funky socks probably crossed your mind. Or if you're even more like me, you thought "oooo maybe I'll engrave something!" Yep. That's what I did. Not that there is anything wrong with that, but I look back on my wedding gift to my hubby and think "...really? THAT'S what you got him?" Hindsight is 20/20, right? :D Don't worry, he loved his gift...but not NEARLY as much as he loved the boudoir session I surprised him with for another occasion! 

Let's think outside of the box together.

Socks? Or sexy photos of you wearing knee-high socks?

Something engraved? Or sexy photos of you?

I mean..no matter how you spin it, you KNOW the clear winner. ;) Let's put together the perfect boudoir session so you can really take his breath away, just like this girl did for her groom!

A Gift for Yourself! | Orlando Boudoir Photographer

This gorgeous girl spent the morning with us for her boudoir session, and it was just for HER! Obviously boudoir sessions are the absolute perfect gift to give a spouse, but don't forget that it doesn't always have to be about someone else. Sometimes it's good to pamper yourself, too!

A Gift for Yourself! | Orlando Boudoir Photographer

Elegant Boudoir Session | Orlando Boudoir Photographer

I am obsessed with our boudoir lovely's wardrobe. The lace, the bows, the corset...ah! One of my many favorite parts of a boudoir session is getting to see what everyone brings to wear. There are so many different tastes of lingerie, and it all just makes me want to have a closet full of every piece of lingerie ever made! 

I just adore this session and this sweet girl, and I know her hubby LOVED his gift!

Perfect Wedding Gift | Orlando Boudoir Photographer

I.Love.This.Session. This gorgeous gal was all smiles the whole time, and I couldn't have asked for a more perfect boudoir shoot! Her purpose for doing the session was for a wedding gift for her groom, but I am excited that she is now working on some personal goals and will be coming back for another one! 

Boudoir is not just for having pretty photos taken. It's for confidence (which this girl does NOT lack!), doing something bold, doing something different, and showing yourself that you are freaking awesome. 

Can't wait for round 2 with this lovely lady!

A Lovely Boudoir Session | Orlando Boudoir Photographer

Girls. 

It's almost Christmas. Is anyone else in as much shock as I am how the years are going quicker and quicker? How is that even possible?! 

This year has been nothing short of amazing for our Lovely in Lace team! So many gorgeous women have stepped into our studio for their sessions, and walked out feeling on top of the world! 

This particular boudoir lovely of ours was just as sweet as can be. She has such a calmness to her that really makes you feel like you're with a good friend. We loved chatting it up with her about her life and her upcoming anniversary (10 years! -- the boudoir session was a gift for her hubby!). Thank you for trusting us with something SO special, and happy anniversary to you and your husband!

Ripped Jeans + Tied T-shirt | Orlando Boudoir Photographer

If you know me, you know I LOVE lingerie. Like..if I could have a closet just for lingerie, I would. There's something about the right piece that just brings out confidence, and hopefully you all feel the same way!

But then of course, there's always that one outfit that you put on and you think "DAMN. I look good!" This lovely client of ours just nailed the ripped jeans and tied t-shirt look. I mean it literally looks like it was sewn just for her and her amazing curves! Scroll through the post to see what I mean!
