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.
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.
We're near the end of my What to Wear series, and today, I'm talking about bridal looks. As you may know, bridal boudoir season is in full swing here at Cheeky Boudoir in Ballston Spa, NY.

You’d be surprised at the number of clients that come to me that tell me that they don’t own lingerie (aside from your basic bra and panty sets for everyday use) and have no clue what to wear for their shoot. It could be for a variety of reasons. Some women don’t want to fuss with straps and hooks. Some women feel it’s pointless because the lingerie is going to come off anyway. Then there are some women that just don’t feel comfortable in lingerie. They’re all perfectly valid reasons. When you’re starting from scratch, my first piece of advice is to choose pieces that you can feel comfortable in. Boudoir Wardrobe Inspiration: A Cozy Cardigan & Knee-high Socks I love this set because not only is it super-cute, but it’s something that almost anyone can feel comfortable in. If your midsection is an area of concern, a cardigan is the perfect way to hide it. Additionally, the cardigan and socks combo give your hands an opportunity to not be idle during your shoot. Buttoning and unbuttoning the sweater, shrugging the sweater off your shoulders, pulling the socks on, or pulling the socks off. It all makes for a great […]
