What goes behind the Scenes in a Boudoir Shoot?

August 3, 2021

Are you curious to know what goes on behind closed doors in a boudoir shoot? If you’re planning to book a session soon, allow us to walk you through it so that you have an idea (feel free to visualize the experience while you’re reading!).


Before you proceed with your photoshoot, your photographer is going to give you a quick chat to make you feel comfortable and will also orient you as to how the shoot will go. Think of this as easing in; your time to settle and get into the mood.

Hair & Makeup

This is the fun part because this is where the real transformation begins. You get to see yourself go from drab to fab! You’ll feel more confident as you see changes in your appearance, too.

While you have a dedicated hairstylist and makeup artist tasked to make you look gorgeous, you can always let your team know if you have a certain look or style that you want (lashes are usually already included in the package).


You’ll enjoy picking and changing your outfits because the pieces you’re going to wear are much sexier than your usual dresses and tops. Good jewelry and accessories will spice everything up as well (so remember to bring your personal favorites!).

Actual Session

Visualize cameras clicking, background music playing, and your photographer telling you the best poses you can do to emphasize your best assets. You're certainly going to come out confident and comfortable in your own skin after the shoot. You might want to ask some girlfriends for dinner, too! You’ll be looking extra beautiful that day, and what better way to make the most out of it by having a girls’ night out (or a romantic date), right?
