Four Reasons You Should do a Boudoir Shoot

Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching and for many of us the pressure is back on for the perfect present to surprise our significant other with. Or maybe you were recently engaged and want to surprise your new fiancé with something, but aren’t quite sure what. You’ve probably heard the word boudoir before, or maybe you’ve contemplated having a photo session done. The term is actually French, and means the quarters in which a woman gets ready in private.If you’re still stuck on what to do for this day, having a boudoir session done of you couldn’t be a more perfect present-for your lover AND for yourself. Here’s why:

You’re going to feel amazing

Seriously. After you see pictures of yourself from a boudoir session, you are going to realize how beautiful and sexy you truly are! Having a boudoir session done is a great way to make you feel confident and really WOW your lucky guy. A professional photographer is a professional because they have the skills to make you look your absolute best. If you’re worried about feeling awkward or uncomfortable, remember you can bring a friend with you, and also a mimosa or two. However most women find once they get in front of the camera, the feeling of discomfort goes away because your boudoir photographer is going to make you feel at ease. If you don’t leave your session feeling amazing about yourself, your photographer has not done their job right. So if you’re waiting to lose that extra ten pounds, for your hair to grow out or whatever excuses you have-quit. Stop whatever you are doing and book your appointment.

Few presents are better

Your future hubby is going to be ecstatic on Valentine’s Day when he opens a book full of you in his favorite t-shirt or in your favorite lingerie set holding his guitar. Can you imagine the look on your significant others face when you surprise him with your boudoir photos? You might even want to hire the photographer to be there to capture his face! But really, he is going to love it, this will stay a special present for years.

Right now is the best time


Imagine how fun it is going to be in twenty years to look back on these special photos of yourself. Boudoir photography is timeless and elegant, making it a gift every year to come; to yourself and to your special someone.

You don’t have to go to Victoria’s Secret and spend your whole paycheck either; places like Target and Marshalls offer affordable, aesthetic lingerie. Chances are you also have clothing lying around at home that you can incorporate. A few keys are to shop fitting and for your body type and anything that makes you feel sexy! When you feel sexy-you look sexy, then your pictures are going to be ah ma zing!

We felt extremely lucky to have Fusion shoot our wedding and engagement session. My wife and I had never been professionally photographed before and so we were probably a little awkward at first, but the Fusion team made us feel comfortable in a hurry.
