Boho Boudoir Shoots
The vulnerability of boudoir can be scary territory sometimes. But, as you’ll soon learn, with vulnerability comes intimacy. The kind of intimacy that we don’t often have a chance to capture in our fast-paced lives.
So, congratulations for prioritising your own needs, your own self-worth, your own body. When was the last time you set aside some time to really appreciate the body you’ve been living in? Our upcoming session together is the perfect way to set aside time for just this – an opportunity to embrace your entire self, and stick it to a society that tells you you’re not good enough. I am here to support you all the way. That’s why I’ve created this shoots. Crafted especially for you, it’s the key to you walking into your session feeling sexy, confident, and informed.
Sensual, natural, real
GETTING THE JUICES FLOWING
YOUR BOUDOIR SESSION
Start thinking about what you love about your body. Reflect on why you’ve chosen to do this shoot. Imagine how incredible it’s going to feel to get the images back. Thinking about why you’re doing this shoot will help you balance out the (very normal) nerves that might come with the approaching shoot date.
How would you like your personality to be reflected in the images? Are you romantic or risqué? Classic or quirky? The answer to these questions will help you get excited about your shoot and drive the decision-making process about what to wear.
How NOT to prepare
How to prepare
I just want to preface this section by saying it’s your body, your rules. But, there are a couple of things that you can do for me that will greatly impact your photographs for the better.
Please don’t get a spray tan. This stuff has a way of sinking into the little creases of your skin, creating an uneven or blotchy appearance.
Don’t wax or shave immediately before your session. These processes can sometimes cause inflammation, drawing undue attention to your bikini line or underarms.
Don’t wear anything you don’t feel comfortable in. Although it can be tempting to wear incredibly sexy new lingerie, it’s important that it’s been professionally fitted to your form so that it’s not bunching or pinching in the wrong places.
Don’t wear tight clothes before the session - jeans and bras sometimes leave marks on your skin.
Don’t starve yourself. Load up on leafy greens, healthy fats, and lots of water. Your skin will thank you for it.
Get lots of sleep – especially the night before your shoot. You’ll feel and look way more refreshed if you’re caught up on your zzz’s.
Moisturise. Do a face mask. Exfoliate. Condition. Do all of the things to pamper yourself – not just because you’ll look better, but you’ll feel more confident knowing that you’re looking your best, too.
Make a playlist! Choose songs that make you feel sexy, beautiful, or happy. I’ll put it on my speakers when you arrive and we can set the mood together.
Mentally prepare by being mindful of your thinking. Practice being kind to yourself in small ways, like identifying parts of your body and mentally listing things about each part that you’re grateful for.
Get In Touch
Where will we shoot?
’d love to shoot in a location that feels meaningful to you. This can be at home, my studio, in an AirBnb that reflects your style, or somewhere else entirely. The nature of boudoir requires us to book our session somewhere private. Sometimes, this means finding an indoor location. But, it doesn't necessarily have to mean that! If you’re lucky enough to know of any deserted locations, throw them at me! Alternatively, if there’s a really cute boutique hotel you’ve stayed at that you love the look of, let’s check it out together. I love any opportunity to work in new locations.
If nowhere comes to mind, don’t worry. My studio is super cozy but I’ve also got a list of amazing AirBnbs that we can look into renting for our session.
Hair, nails and make up
With your hair down, you get movement, romance, and some perfect slices of imperfection in the best possible way.
The main reason we’re here is for your self-empowerment. If getting your hair and makeup done makes you feel more confident and comfortable in your own skin, do it. If you feel weird in a full face of makeup, skip it – or just keep it minimal.
If you do decide to get a little bit fancy, then I fully recommend getting your hair and makeup professionally done! If you’ve got a full mane, it’s best to wear your hair down – I have lots of great poses that involve running your fingers through your hair or tossing it around a little bit.
The Annie Brittain Photography donates 5% of each session to Women Aid. Women’s Aid is a grassroots federation working together to provide life-saving services in England and build a future where domestic abuse is not tolerated. Your session helps other women change their lives.
