Is this your very first boudoir photo shoot and you have no idea what to pack? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.

Boudoir photography is all about having fun and exploring your sensuality. Instead of worrying about the tiny little details like what you need to bring, we want you focused on enjoying yourself. Having a checklist of things you can prepare prior to the shoot will hopefully help ease your jitters and make your photo shoot as stress-free as possible.

Here’s 7 things you can bring that are essential to the success of your boudoir photo shoot!

1. Sexy Lingerie

Dare to bear in black lingerie that oozes sex appeal. Or give off angelic vibes in a sheer white floral lace lingerie. Either way, make sure they frame your form perfectly. After all, you want lingerie that boosts your confidence and highlights your curves in all the right places.

Pro tip: always, always wear something you are comfortable in. Don’t feel pressured to wear anything that’s too racy for your liking. When you’re happy with your lingerie, your body language will radiate confidence. Then you can strut and slay without a care in the world.  



2. High Heels

Nothing screams sexy more than a pair of killer high heels. Not only do they nicely compliment your look, the right high heels fit can also highlight your legs, bum and even your bust. You can also play around with the straps of your heels while shooting the camera a seductive look for a pose that will set pulses racing.

3. Stockings

Stockings elongate your pins and add class. Fishnets are a bit more cheeky and playful. Suspender belts bring retro glamour and exude a vintage feel. Wear whatever fits your style and don’t be surprised if you become the centre of attention.

4. Accessories

It’s like what Marilyn Monroe said, “diamonds are a girl’s best friend”. Put on some bling and get ready to feel like a million dollars. Feel free to let your imagination go wild and bring along some statement pieces too. You can slay in a satin scarf or turn heads in a faux fur overcoat.

5. Something Personal

If you want to do a boudoir shoot as a gift for your bae, consider bringing a little something that bears personal value for the both of you. It could be the pajama set you two always cuddle in, or your significant other’s favourite shirt. These items would make the shoot feel a lot more intimate. In addition, wearing something that smells familiar will help ease your nerves and serve as a reminder that you are doing this in the name of love.



6. Bridal Pieces

Looking to surprise your soon-to-be partner for life? Bring the bridal pieces you actually wear on your big day. Your veil, your tiara, even your wedding heels. Trust me, you won’t regret it. When you look back at the pictures, you’ll remember feeling like a sexy real-life queen about to get swept off her feet.

7. Sewing Kit

Beautiful as it is, lingerie is a delicate little thing that would rip at the slightest of tugs. The last thing you want is something as silly as wardrobe malfunction getting in the way of your entire shoot. That’s why it’s better to be safe than sorry. A small sewing kit and an intermediate sewing skill go a long way indeed.
