In order to figure out if a boudoir shoot is right for you, it’s important to have a good understanding of what boudoir photography is all about. There’s a misconception that a boudoir shoot requires you to be naked which is not necessarily true. How much you wear is completely up to you. At Provocateur Images we can make you look sexy in everyday clothes or nothing at all. Sexy is a mindset not about what you wear… or don’t wear. What we’d like to do is share with you some ideas to make your session the most memorable and get the best results.

Find The Right Photographer | We really hope you like what we offer and our photographic style. Chances are if you’re reading this, you probably do like the look of the images we create. That being said, your comfort level is really important to us which is why we always welcome people into our studio to meet us and see our space. Provocateur Images brings all the elements of very feminine boudoir looks with an eye for what a guy finds sexy which gives us a unique advantage in pleasing both your expectations and what your significant other will find sexy.

Communicate What You Want | In all of our boudoir sessions (except minis) we want you to tell us what you like. We have our own look at Provocateur Images but we can coach you differently to achieve different shades of sexy. We ask everyone to provide us with 8-12 images that relate to lighting, poses, hair, makeup and overall look so that we can tailor the look of your session to you. In a boudoir session there is a huge range of variance when it comes to the look. There is ultra sexy on one end and playful cute on the other. With such a wide range, we like to know what you like the best.

What To Wear Or Not Wear | Wardrobe can be the make or break element to a boudoir session. There are so many things you can wear. This is where a consultation with us beforehand helps tremendously. We have a great style board on our Pinterest Page that describes what looks good for different body types. Most importantly though, when choosing wardrobe, think about what makes you feel comfortable. Also think about your partner finds the most arousing because if you’re doing this as a gift you may want to work in a look they find sexy too.

Bring Some Music | Make a playlist for your session. It really helps you get into the swing of things and get in the right mood. This is possibly the one thing that can make your session most memorable as you rock some super sexy poses to some great tunes. Just try to keep it upbeat and have about 3 hours of music so you can listen while you are getting your hair and makeup done too.

Practice | Before your session you will receive our prep guide and it has a link to our expression guide. You can practice smiling, sultry looks and look aways before you start shooting. Don’t worry during your session we’ll offer tons of guidance when it comes to posing and expression too but it never hurts to have a bit of extra prep before the shoot.

And that’s it… There are they key things you need to do to have a great boudoir session.
