1. Hire a photographer you trust.

No one should ever be made to feel like Coco Hernandez in Fame. In the case of boudoir photography: Go reputable or go home. For the most modest among us, I recommend a caring  photographer, willing to help silence the shy static in your head. Here at TEngland Photography we are a Husband and Wife Team that will help set you at ease, help you to be confident, and provide you with an excellent experience that you will love.

2. Bring a girlfriend with you.

You didn’t have to go it alone. Using legendary powers of persuasion, talk your girlfriend into tagging along. Maybe you will convince her to book a boudoir shoot of her own in a real cliff-driving Thelma & Louise moment. Some people have blood brothers, I recommend a boudoir besties.

3. Have a drink. Or many.

TEngland Photography can greet you with wine upon arrival. We understand you may be a little nervous.  Relax and have a drink while you get your Hair and Makeup done. A simple drink turned into Hey, look at me looking all good and sexy-like! Imbibe those inhibitions; you’ll be glad you did.

4. Go vintage.

Exhaustive lingerie shopping taught us vintage-inspired styles are a discreet girl’s dream. For my first look, maybe you start with a  three-quarter classic style bralette and a pretty little slip skirt that can hide most of you. The whole look will have you feeling like a sophisticated sex kitten without actually having to be one.

5. Ditch lingerie altogether.

I’m not talking about going nude, but if that’s your thing, you can do that. What I am saying is that you don’t even need to dress in lingerie for a boudoir shoot if you don’t want to. Play it cute with cotton boy shorts and an off-the-shoulder t-shirt for a sexy co-ed look. Dip into an elegant slip dress. Wrap yourself in a bed sheet. Cozy it up in a plush bathrobe. Wear (or don’t wear) whatever makes you feel sexy, flirty, pretty, and comfortable in your own skin.

6. Give yourself a pass.

It’s OK to do something you normally wouldn’t do and for some reason, giving yourself weird “permission” was what you may need. While it was true that you wouldn’t normally do something like this, but maybe that is the exact reason you should.

7. Have a sense of humor.

It can feel more than weird for a modest mom of two to strip down, cup her boobs, pop her hips, and lick her lips. These are things moms just don’t typically do. These are things that should never, ever, ever be taken too seriously. So what if you can’t roll your hips or arch your back a certain way, have a laugh about it and trust your great photographer will make a model out of you yet.

8. Have a mantra.

We suggest you arm yourself with a mantra.  Even “Shoulders down,” would  be better than nothing. A simple, sexy phrase to hang onto that makes you feel powerful and unstoppable, You will enjoy the experience even more.

9. Breathe.

We will remind you, "Just Breathe"  take that sexy oxygen in and breathe out pure fire.

10. See yourself.

I’m not going to wax poetic about how boudoir photography will change your life or your willingness to flaunt what your mama gave you, but I will say that viewing your femininity in a new and beautiful light will feel empowering. But pretty pictures are only part of the story. Appreciating your body for all it is, all it’s done, and all it’s capable of was about so much more than sexuality. It will be  about discovering new boldness beneath your skin.
