YOU’RE CELEBRATING YOURSELF WITH A BOUDOIR PHOTOSHOOT
“A boudoir photo shoot is an empowering experience that will boost your self-confidence. It’s a way to show self-love and self-acceptance, with beautiful photos you (and your significant other) will treasure for a lifetime.” say the experts at Celebrate Your Sexy.
4GirlsGlamour tells us, “Although the main purpose of booking a boudoir shoot may be to gift a gorgeous album to your partner, most of our clients feel that the session ended up being an unexpected gift for them. It’s a way to reconnect with themselves and celebrate their beauty and confidence.”

Lauren of Lauren B Photography tells us, “Boudoir and Bodies sessions are tasteful and empowering. These are a true gift for yourself – and if your somebody gets to appreciate it too, then [it’s a] win-win!”
If you’re shy and concerned this isn’t your thing, a pro can help you get comfortable, as Lauren explains, “There’s nothing to worry about – I’m happy to direct with simple strategic posing and can tell you just what to do, where to look, etc. The session will be tailored to your preferences – do you want a boudoir session that’s light and bright or dark and dramatic? Or is a fitness or themed session more your style? Let’s chat about it! I find people are nervous for the first couple of minutes and then it is so much fun!”
YOU CAN PAMPER YOURSELF
You don’t have to, but what better reason to book a hair and make-up session? While you’re at it, buy some new lingerie and bring a few shoe options. You’ll be able to use them beyond the shoot, maybe even on your honeymoon. Also don’t forget to bring bridal accessories like the ring, a veil, or anything you want that will link the photos in some way to the wedding. These items will add your personal stamp to the shoot. If you’re not sure of where to start when it comes to accessories, check out Celebrate Your Sexy’s Pinterest board called ‘Bridal Boudoir.’
YOUR BOUDOIR PHOTOSHOOT IS A GREAT KEEPSAKE
As those from Celebrate Your Sexy tell us, “Whether you’re celebrating a big life event, an important milestone, or your wedding, photographs are an amazing way to capture special moments in your life. You’ll have so much fun looking back at these amazing photos that capture how incredible and adventurous you are!”
Most photographers that do boudoir photoshoots need about 4-6 weeks before you need your gift. This is because once you’ve had your shoot, you’ll need to select your images and then customize what type of format you want your photos in. Depending on the company, there are mini albums, “standard” albums, and other items your photographer might offer. So check with your vendor for exact timing and details. And if all else fails, consider booking your shoot now and gifting it for Valentine’s Day, which will be here before we know it!
