Starting boudoir photography means that there are things that you need to learn and tell to clients. Especially because this line of job is not exactly the type that people will have much knowledge about, it’s always good to know what you need to tell them.
Explain about boudoir photography
Lots of people have a misconception about boudoir pictures. They think it is all about doing porn pictures and posing naked. Actually, boudoir pictures are only possible when no private parts of the body revealed. It’s the type of picture when women get to pose and show their confidence in lingerie and underwear.
Even if anybody does it naked, it will be under the condition of blocked by something. The point of boudoir is to show beauty and confident in the most revealing way. Check out boudoir photography websites for better illustrations.
Empathize with their worries
Many women are not confident with their looks and appearances. They will spot flaws and tells you that maybe they aren’t meant to do one. That’s bulls!
Boudoir photography is not meant only for models or those under a certain weight. Every woman deserves to show their curves and be confident. Especially if the pictures are going to be presented for their husbands, it’s even more convincing that no matter how you look, you are at your best.
Show them several pictures of women from different origin and size of bodies. This is the best way to convince them that not being a model is totally fine. Nobody is perfect and what really matters is that you enjoy yourself and the one that will receive your gift will definitely love it, too.
Help them with wardrobe
Women don’t know the must-have they need to bring, so help them suggest the best pair of underwear, lingerie, and corset to bring. Suggest with colors, too. Black and white are some of the must bring; others colors will depend on preference.
Tell them to bring their favorite ones and make sure to use it on the night they give it to their husband if they plan to. This is one of the best ways to surprise loved one.
Discuss the place
Boudoir photography has to be taken in a bedroom, or in a living room with a nice sofa or loveseat. Discuss with your client if she has a place she’d like to use or recommend. You can also ask if doing it in a hotel room will be okay.
If the both of you have agreed to do it in the house of someone, make sure you’ve gained permission and explore the place before the shoot times. Tell your client that you need to make sure the place has enough natural light shining in with a nice bedroom or a sofa to lay on and complementary background.
Help them with what to do with the pictures
Especially brides and wives, they find themselves wondering how they should give the pictures to their significant ones. Make yourself better by helping them and giving ideas on how to present the pictures in the most surprising and memorable ways. This will definitely add value to what you’ve already provided.
