10 creative ways to spice up your first boudoir photoshoot

Edmonton Boudoir Photography

You’ve seen our images. You’ve seen our sets. You booked your first boudoir shoot.

You already know it’ll be absolute FIRE 🔥 but you want something more.

Here are our top 10 ways to spice up your first boudoir photoshoot!

1. Bring a Prop or Clothing Item

Hats, heels, your significant other’s shirt. Whatever has a special meaning to you that you think will give that little extra touch to your shoot!

But don’t overdo it. Remember, boudoir is about stripping OFF the layers. We don’t want too many props to take away from your natural beauty shining through.

2. Bring an outfit you always wanted but never dared to wear

Seriously. Now is the time. There has literally NEVER been a better time to bust it out and try it out.

If it is not right for you we WILL tell you AND help you find something better in our client closet.

Did you know?

When you book in for a boudoir shoot with us we will send you prep guides to help you pick out the right themes, clothes, and more?

We work together with all our clients to build a personalized experience EVERY TIME.

3. Do yoga in the morning before your boudoir photoshoot

You’ll be feeling calm, loose, comfortable in just the right way. You’ll be more centered in your true self and ready to show that self off.

We love the Calm app and Insight Timer (which is totally free BTW). Try searching for a confidence-boosting meditation to end your yoga session on just the right note.

4. Add on our After Dark boudoir photoshoot set

You wanna talk about spicy?

It doesn’t get any spicier than this!!

Our after dark set takes boudoir to the next level. Complete with whips, chains, a stripper pole, dark backgrounds, and lighting in JUST the right places, this set about all things S&M.

5. Try a little role play

But if the BDSM After Dark set is just a little TOO sultry for you we have a more chill area in the after dark zone: The Den.

This set can bring a lot of fantasies to life.

Sexy librarian?

Tempting assistant?

The ultimate #GirlBoss?

Slip into just the right outfit on this tantalizing set to make your roleplay dreams come true!

6. Get your images same day

Why not make a day of it? You can choose to spend a full day at the GCP studio by purchasing any of our pre-planned experience packages or adding same-day viewing to your custom package. We’ll grab lunch for you to enjoy at the studio while we get your images ready for you to see and select!

7. Opt for a mimosa at the studio

Whether you’re staying for the full day experience or not, you can definitely opt for refreshments (of the alcoholic and non-alcoholic variety) to push your experience up a notch. No extra charge.

8. Plan a girls night or date night after your boudoir photoshoot

Speaking of making a day of it, why not make a night of it, too?

Plan a night out with girls, dinner, drinks, whatever floats your boat. OR, grab your significant other and spend some special one-on-one time while you’re riding the high that inevitably comes from a boudoir shoot!

Check out some of our favourite date night ideas for the Edmonton area in our “5 Ways to Spice Up Your Sex Life” blog post.

9. Use a fantasy set for your boudoir shoot

Our photography sets take things to the next level and help you create a cinematic boudoir experience.

Use the set, posing, and other elements to tell a story and create a fantasy for yourself!

10. Leave all your worries behind

10. Opt to include a massage with your boudoir shoot!

There’s nothing quite like letting the tension of life melt away before getting into your lingerie for a fun and interactive boudoir shoot. You’ll be flexible, limber and ready to look as great as you’ll feel.
