What are the MUST HAVES for my boudoir photo shoot?

When you are working with me, this list is short… There are only a small handful of items I ask that you bring to make your boudoir photo shoot incredible.

A Nude Thong

Yes, please please please bring your nude thong to your boudoir photoshoot if you’re planning on wearing ANYTHING from my client closet.

Hygiene is super important to me. Even though I wash every piece (even if it’s only worn for 5 seconds) I still require you to wear a nude thong underneath.

One outfit of your own

It’s never happened before, but what if you don’t like any of the items in my client closet? Well if you’ve brought something of your own you know fits well and you love, then we’re good to go. Otherwise, we shoot nakey!

Yup… That’s it! Didn’t I say that the list was short? When you’re packing for your boudoir photo shoot with me, your bag will be LIGHT! I’ve got you from start to finish (from Initial Inquiry to Gallery Reveal), head to toe! Everything else is taken care of for you.

What else can I bring to my boudoir photo shoot?

My list of must haves is short, but my list of suggestions is never ending!!! There are countless options for things to bring to make your session personalized and unique to you.

Your partner’s shirt

This babe was actually doing her boudoir photo shoot as an anniversary gift for her husband, and she’s wearing his wedding shirt! How sweet is this?


Don’t worry, you won’t have to walk around in them… But a nice pair of stilettoes can be really fun in some shots!

Adding your own personal touch to your boudoir photo shoot is so key! Jewelry is such a special way to do it… whether it’s an engagement ring, a special bracelet or necklace your partner gave to you, or your favourite pearl earrings, it’ll make your session a little more unique.

Any prop that makes you feel *spicy*
