Boudoir Photography Tip # 1 The first thing you are going to need is a team! As awesome as your iphone is, you will want these photos captured and styled by professionals. They will ensure that your boudoir session is everything it should be and more. You will for sure need a Photographer, Hair & Makeup. A stylist and florals for props and of course some Lingerie.
Boudoir Photography Tip # 2 You are going to want flawless legs. Let's face it we all want picture perfect legs, and sometimes we may need a little help. Here a few easy steps to picture perfect legs Sally Hansen style. 1. Wash and exfoliate with Bliss Fat Gir lScrub. It works to promote circulation through exfoliation and massage, polishing with 60 percent Himalayan pink salt to slough off dead skin and leave a silky finish. 2. Shave your legs with a solid razor. We actually use Men's razors, like Gillette Fusion Proglide, they seem to get the job done better. 3. Moisturizer - with a cellulite cream with retinol and caffeine like Bodi Shape. It has terrific reviews on Amazon, and is worth a shot. Heck! We bought a bottle. 4. Wait about 15 minutes, after moisturizers and use and use Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs. Think of it as makeup for your legs. Hiding all the imperfections. It is waterproof, and it does not stain bedsheets.It's not self tanner. Which means no gross smell, and no chemicals dying your skin
Boudoir Photography Tip # 3 Find the right lingerie for your body type will make your boudoir shoot go extra smooth. Something that you feel comfortable in, and that flatters your figure. We love this Fleur Flutter Body Suit. The details are delicate and beautiful, and the quality seems above average
Another great option for your boudoir outfit is to sport a romper. Wearing a romper for boudoir shoot can be extremely flattering. Like  this stunning romper from Tessa Kim. Which has a button shoulder closure, this romper allows for easy removal when getting ready. Possibly you could wear it on your wedding day as well, as your getting ready outfit.
Boudoir Photography Tip # 4 Be sure your hair is pretty! Make sure you hire a professional to get your hair done. As you see Chiali Meng did an exquisite job creating a relaxed, yet elegant  look for this Boudoir shoot. From bedhead to ultra glam your hairstyle should not only fit the style of your Boudoir shoot, but also do what makes you feel most like you.
If you need a pretty accessory for your wedding or boudoir shoot to make your hair extra prett, we love the above piece with pearls rhinestones, bridal hair pin set with gold leaves from OWD Jewlery.
Boudoir Photography Tip # 5 Start Exercising. Sometimes it is hard to get to the gym, or perhaps there is a snow storm outside The Wedding Chicks use cosmoobdy.com and love it. They have put together 90-days of workouts, split into 8 targeted fitness programs to help you reach your ultimate goal. You'll start with some basic workouts, add in strength, then focus on your booty and your abs, before finishing off with cardio and dance. As you see they even have a wowza wedding body workout. Who hoo.
