One of the questions that I'm often asked is whether wardrobe is provided for my boudoir shoots or if my clients need to bring their own. While I do have some "just in case" items in the boudoir closet in my Saratoga boudoir studio, I do ask that clients bring their own pieces for their sessions. Not only is it for comforting to being wearing lingerie that's your own, but this is a great opportunity to show off and celebrate your own style.
"If you are considering a photo shoot, don't put it off or be afraid! It's a wonderful experience and you won't regret it. You will get in touch with your sensual side and feel so free. Pushing myself to do this photo session at 50 taught me that we woman no matter what we look like are beautiful and we should do something for ourselves that make us feel that way. This photo shoot was that for me!" - Miss T

I've been a boudoir photographer for over 8 years now, and I will never get over how many women put their trust in me to create beautiful boudoir images for them. It is especially flattering when other boudoir photographers (or photographers in general) want to work with me in my New York boudoir studio. Such was the case with Miss N of Lilac & Fern Photography.
Something that I am very proud of is the fact that women from all over New York have chosen me as their boudoir photographer. I have clients that come in all the way from Buffalo and NYC just to shoot with me, and I am absolutely humbled and honored that they love my work so much that they're willing to make the trip.
Working with New York bridal boudoir clients is so much fun for me. I can basically feel the excitement in that first e-mail. Women are always so thrilled about their upcoming nuptials, and they're so eager to tell their stories. To me, this is THE BEST. I'm a big proponent of love, so when I get to hear couples' love stories, it makes my heart absolutely melt.
Aside from preparing yourself to get in front of my camera at my Saratoga boudoir studio, one of the most nerve wracking aspects of prepping for your boudoir shoot can be finding the perfect pieces to wear for your shoot. Not only do you have to think about the fit, but what type of pieces will photograph well. I know that when I was planning my boudoir shoot, I spent 4 months scouring online shops for the perfect outfits to wear.
If you know me, you know that I absolutely LOVE my clients. I love working with so many fantastic and strong women in my Saratoga boudoir photography studio because they motivate me to be a better person. Every once in a while, though, I get to work with someone that is truly unforgettable. This was the case with Miss L. Her session will go down in the history books as the session that I almost busted a gut from laughing too much!
You've been planning your boudoir photoshoot, you have scoured lingerie shops locally and online, and you've found the perfect pieces for your boudoir photoshoot. Now, to pull your look together, it's time to figure out what accessories to pair with your look. Whether you already have jewelry and other accessories that you'd like to use, having that extra sparkle will surely complete your look for your photo shoot in my New York boudoir studio.
The biggest compliment that anyone could give me is to rave to their friends about their boudoir experience with me. The majority of my clients find me through their friends, who also happen to be clients of mine. That's how Miss T found out about my Saratoga boudoir studio. She was out to dinner with a friend, who I happened to photograph (who also heard about me through another friend who I photographed). At first, she wasn't so sure about the idea; however, after some encouragement from her husband, she took a leap and booked her boudoir photo shoot with me.
I often get messages from clients who are struggling to find that one last outfit to round out their boudoir looks. My advice? When all else fails, wear nothing at all! Too scared to bare it all? Have no fear, it's my job as a boudoir photographer to make sure that all of the things that you want hidden in your images stay hidden.
