Matching lounge sets are on trend in a big way. Not only are they super comfortable but they are also really flattering. I love starting out my sessions in something like a matching lounge set to really help my clients break into their most confident selves.

Bring your favorite jacket or one that makes you feel unstoppable. I promise a photo with just this and a matching pair of bottoms will make you look and feel like fire!


I have yet to find someone who didn’t feel sexy and empowered in a bold bodysuit. These pieces are always a hit, and are a great way to step into your most confident self.

Celebrating the curves that define your beauty, curvy boudoir outfits are designed to accentuate and embrace every aspect of your figure.

High-Waisted Lingerie Sets

Modern trends meet timeless elegance in high-waisted lingerie sets. Flattering and stylish, these sets emphasize your curves while providing a touch of vintage-inspired allure.

Corsets and Skirts

Embrace the classic appeal of corsets paired with a flowing skirt. This combination not only highlights your hourglass figure but also exudes a timeless glamour that transcends trends.


Okay, hear me out. I really hate wearing heels in real life. I think they were man-made and unnecessary on a day to day basis, not mention they are painful!! BUT, the one time i appreciate a stiletoo is in boudoir, and only for some of it! They just add a little oomf that can really make your gallery dynamic.

FAQ: Finding the Perfect Boudoir Outfit

Are there specific colors that work best for boudoir photography?

Consider the tones that complement your skin when selecting the color of your outfits. I highly suggest you bring one black outfit, one white or neutral, and one pop of color that you love. Neutrals are universally flattering and always a good idea. However, don’t hesitate to experiment with jewel tones or pastels.

How important is the fit of the outfit?

The fit of your boudoir outfit is paramount. Whether it’s a lace bodysuit or a simple shirt, ensure that the garment accentuates your curves and makes you feel comfortable. Avoid outfits that are too tight or too loose, as they can impact the overall aesthetics of the photos. However, I am all for an oversized t-shirt or button up! There is a place for those too.

Should I bring multiple outfits to a boudoir photoshoot?

Variety adds depth to your boudoir photo collection. Bringing multiple outfits allows you to capture different facets of your personality and style. Consider including a mix of styles, from casual to more elaborate, to create a diverse portfolio of images.

How do I choose accessories for a boudoir photoshoot?

Bring accessories that fit your personal style, compliment your outfit, or just make you feel beautiful! Accessories can enhance the overall impact of your boudoir ensemble. Delicate jewelry, such as earrings or a simple necklace, can add a little je ne sais quoi. Consider bringing additional clothing items like a robe or transparent sheet/blanket. I can help you figure out what pairs best together, this is what i’m here for!
