The Importance of Hiring an Experienced Boudoir Photographer
Have you been thinking about checking a boudoir session off of your bucket list? If so, this guide is perfect for you.
There are a few key factors to look at when hiring a boudoir photographer. The first important factor in my opinion is experience. We all have to start somewhere but if you are willing to invest in a vulnerable photoshoot, make sure you feel comfortable with your photographers style and portfolio.
An experienced photographer is going to be able to pose you in ways that compliment your body type. Boudoir is all about angles. I am personally the WORST when it comes to having terrible posture. I am my own worst critic and I know I am not alone. When you are investing in a boudoir shoot, you need to feel confident and sexy. Talk to your photographer about photoshoots they have done previously with someone with a similar body type as your own to provide yourself with some comfort.
The second thing to look for in a Boudoir Photographer is personality. I have had so many women and men that are scared to get a shoot done because of a previous experience. You are ultimately getting naked in front of another individual so you need to make sure you are comfortable with that person so that they can properly create the images you have in mind. Boudoir is ALWAYS awkward in the beginning but it helps to have someone there to calm you down and be your biggest hype man.
Photographers all have different styles when it comes to angles, editing, locations, lighting, etc. Make sure to do your research to find the person that matches the style and colors you are looking for. If you are looking for bright and airy make sure your photographer normally edits that way. If your looking for darker and more moody look, make sure the photographer you choose is familiar with that style.
Boudoir sessions are something you should not take lightly but also try not to psych yourself out. These are almost always fun and life changing experiences so make sure to make the best out of it and choose the right boudoir photographer for YOU.
