1. What is Nude Boudoir Photography?

Boudoir photography is a art of story telling about woman’s private dressing room . basically that’s the actual meaning of Boudoir and Boudoir photography refers to a woman’s and woman’s dressing room photography Boudoir is a French word. It is an unheard and unknown place , much like the photography taken for the subject of boudoir, photography  depicting the woman’s own personal dressing room and private life. According to your client, boudoir photography can be fashion and glamor photography.  But you know very well that your clients are not professional models who have not done it a million times, but with boudoir photography, you are presenting subjects and poses that may be completely new to your clients.  They’re likely to be uncomfortable, and they might not know how to pull off even the most basic poses.  In short, a boudoir shoot requires a lot of photographers in terms of directing, posing, and communication skills and we’ve covered everything you need to know about photography even with a new client.  will also give information below.

2.Setup and Preparation for the Boudoir Photo Shoot

As we already know what is boudoir photography and how it is different from another photoshoot, due to which the preparations made for this are also a little different, for this boudoir photography you have to prepare  But along with you, and your clients also have to prepare for this, we understand this in more detail. And explain both topic  .

1-photographer preparation –

As I told that the photographer also has to be ready for this because the photographer has to prepare for this work in two ways first his camera lens light these things which is the biggest job of a photographer and in  I understand that it is easy for a photographer help you and no then i help you,  and second to prepare their team for this type of boudoir photoshoot how they have to treat their clients because your team and your behavior is everything and also  Depends on how you make your behavior with your client you have to first bring your client in your comfort zoon till they come in their comfort zoon then neither your photoshoot will be good nor client will enjoy more  Will come and especially make sure to make your client pose which is easy for her and don’t be ashamed to do it especially when it is a boudoir + bold photoshoot because for you to bring your client in your comfort zone  It would have been easy if you had noticed that the place where you are going to shoot her photo is the most favorite place for women.  One of the favorite places is their own dressing room if the client has already done this then. photoshoot then it will be easy for him as well as you and whenever you have boudoir photoshoot with client one day before that  Also try to meet him because it gives confidence and if you are doing this type of boudoir photoshoot for the first time then it will be very little thing for you too, if it is possible then you keep practicing because  Your practice will take you forward . researching how to do it, it is easy to see it as simply another form of portraiture .

2-client preparation –

If the client thinks that every preparation for this   boudoir photography is done by the photographer then it is wrong.  Because if you are doing boudoir photography for the first time in your whole life then this subject is a bit difficult for you because your photographer is professional.  but not yours. For this you have to remember the following thing .

1.You should do the same pose in which you get comfortable and do not try to do it by taking photos from the internet because they are all professional models.

2.It doesn’t matter if you don’t want to show your face in any pose because it’s your private part and that decision will also be yours and not the photographer’s.

3.And you should also know that what kind of advertisement you want to put in the boudoir photoshoot you are getting done, you should draw your photo accordingly because every advertisement has a limitation .

4.And the most important thing is that there should be a good balance between you and your photographer.  No photoshoot can be great without harmony.

3.Communication with your client before shoot

 As we know, communication is very important for boudoir photoshoot .  Communication here does not mean online medium because we can do email and phone through online medium.  But unless we sit in front of him and consult, we will not know what he wants and it is very important for us to know why he is doing the Boudoir photo shoot, And how did it come in his mind that he has to do a boudoir photoshoot, from this it will be known what type of photo shoot he wants.  And what is the image of the shoot being created in their mind? And this will show that what is their expectation from this photoshoot, so that we can easily tell here which type of photo will be good aur bad for them ,  and now this time we will share  our work (which we have done boudoir photoshoot of one of our old clients).  You can also show photography, if you do all this work sitting face to face, then you can easily understand them and if they have any problem then the solution can also be told. If you have a good studio of your own then you can have this conversation there as well.  If this is not possible, then you can call your client in a good restaurant, and after that first try to make them your friend because if you are successful in this effort then your client can easily talk to you about everything .  and after this , some juice , snacks etc. should also be ordered for them.

4.Makeup and Hair Styling for Boudoir Photos –

Makeup and hairstyle are the lifeblood of this entire photoshoot because if we want to show someone’s mood then it can be shown in two ways.  First through the camera and secondly by the makeup and hairstyle used in it like if we are showing the client getting up in the morning there the makeup hairstyle will be different if we are wearing lipstick then it will all be different there. The hairstyle and makeup depends on whether the client has booked it by you or they want to do it themselves.  But remember that this is the lifeblood of the entire photoshoot.  That’s why it’s imperative that you make every effort to get professional help to your clients as makeup and hairdo can make or break the final images, none of which is for the photographer to control.  Boudoir Shoot is owned and controlled by the Client.  Your job is to take the pictures they want to get

5.Favorite subject with Boudoir Photos –

No special thing is being judged here from the favorite subject.  Subject means there are many things that the client likes the most.  It could be their clothes and it could be their make-up accessories or it could also be their wardrobe, it could be anything related to their bedroom.  Because where we depict their personal life and through that some story is told, then this story is the best way to tell when we show them with similar to them

6.Plan the poses

The pose, we should see it in two ways.  First we should sit with the client and decide the pose and second we should also take out some poses separately because we have to show the client until they like the pose because if you are thinking that  We can also make poses at the time of photoshoot, but by doing this, your time will end in telling the pose, so what will you shoot if you make the pose in advance and tell your client that this pose will work.  If you want to be, then your client can tell you whether he liked this pose or not .What does your client  want to show? If your client wants to show off their hips and back, find poses and work on it. When posing for women, focus on soft curves. and highlight curves and postures.

7.Focus on Hand and legs positioning-

Don’t forget their hands and legs . As with all boudoir photography, hand and legs positioning is critical and important  for a natural look in photos .

8.Camera and lances  Choices-

When it comes to the camera, it depends on you whether you use the camera of the any company.  Today many companies come in this rese , but you must have at least one DSLR.  And if possible then there should be a mirrorless camera with which you can use your lens according to your requirement. But if possible . And if possible, for this type of photoshoot, you should have a protrate lens like 40mm 50mm or 85mm These lenses come with 1.8F.  It is considered very good for boudoir photography.  If you want to use wideangle then you can do that too but if you don’t have the budget then you can look for an all-rounder lens.  Like 24-70mm or 24-200mm these are great lenses that comes with F4

9.Lighting Considerations-

Lighting is very important for this type of photoshoot and we know very well  that photography lighting is very expensive and as far as possible, we should keep our lighting connection wireless which is very convenient for photoshoot.  But if you do not have such a high budget, then you can use direct sunlight because this light gives you a chance to do a stunning photo show.  After that if you have the budget then you can work with Cinematic Light.  By which it is known that what mood you want to keep in boudoir photography and all the photos taken in this lighting give very good results.


Post production is such a thing by which you can also correct the mistakes made in your photography and make your client’s face clean and bright, which makes your photo look more attractive.  Post production has become an important part of photography because in this we try to give a better look to our photography and if you click photograph in RAW then it will do a lot of work easily and keep in mind .


As compared to other forms of photographer, boudoir needs to be done a little more carefully because it is a different type of photography whose popularity is increasing day by day and it is also clear from the above points that such  To do photography, you should have more skills than other photographers.  If you want to become a master in this type of photo, then you should know that the one who practices taking photographs properly will become the master of boudoir, so you need to practice more and more to become good in photography on boudoir photo.
