Welcome to Grace in Lace Boudoir! I’m so excited you’re here, and I can’t wait to help you feel your most fabulous and confident for your upcoming boudoir shoot. Preparing for a boudoir session can be a little nerve-wracking, but don’t worry—I’ve got your back! This guide is here to make sure you’re ready to rock your shoot and have a blast while doing it.

So, let’s dive into our top tips on how to prepare for your boudoir shoot!

Embrace Self-Love and Positivity

First things first, take a deep breath and remind yourself why you’re doing this. Boudoir photography is all about celebrating YOU—your beauty, your strength, and your journey. Start by embracing a positive mindset. Look in the mirror and tell yourself, “I am beautiful, I am confident, and I am ready to shine!”

Choose Outfits That Make You Feel Fabulous

Now for the fun part—wardrobe! Pick outfits that make you feel amazing. Whether it’s lacy lingerie, a favorite pair of heels, or a cozy sweater, choose pieces that reflect your personality and style. Don’t be afraid to mix it up with different looks—sexy, playful, romantic, or bold. Remember, this is about YOU, so wear what makes you feel fabulous. And remember, access to my GORGEOUS client closet and a wardrobe consultation is INCLUDED as part of your shoot!

Pamper Yourself Before the Shoot

A little pampering goes a long way in making you feel confident and relaxed. Schedule a spa day, get a manicure, or take a long, relaxing bath. Your shoot includes professional hair and makeup, but it’s good to plan your looks ahead of time. Reach out and let’s schedule a chat with your hair and makeup artists before your shoot! The key is to feel comfortable and confident in your own skin.

Hydrate and Rest

In the days leading up to your shoot, make sure you’re drinking plenty of water and getting enough rest. Staying hydrated will give your skin a healthy glow, and a good night’s sleep will help you feel refreshed and energized. You’ll want to be at your best so you can truly enjoy the experience. (Also- please make sure you EAT before your shoot! Posing takes a lot of energy and you don’t want to get fatigued.)

Pack a Bag of Essentials

A little preparation goes a long way. Pack a bag with your outfits, accessories, and any props you’d like to include in your shoot. And, of course, bring along a positive attitude and an open heart!

Trust the Process

Remember, this is a collaborative experience. Trust your photographer (that’s me!) to guide you through the process. I’m here to make sure you feel comfortable, confident, and empowered every step of the way. Don’t worry about posing or looking a certain way—that’s my job. Your job is to have fun and enjoy the moment.
