3 Reasons Why You Should Consider An In-Home Boudoir Session

One of the big things I have been pushing to shoot more of here in 2017 is in-home boudoir sessions. I’ve been asked about why someone would want to shoot boudoir in their home vs coming to my studio, or a hotel/air bnb, so I decided to put together 3¬†reasons why an in-home boudoir session is something that you should consider.

In-Home boudoir is something that is scary to many women, its understandable to get self conscious about where you live or to feel like your home wouldn’t be a good place to conduct a sexy photoshoot. But the reality of the situation is that there are some really good reasons to push yourself to get over that fear and go with an in-home session.

So are you ready to get started?

1. You have Access To Your Entire Wardrobe

This may seem obvious, but one of the most common issues and stresses that women have when deciding to do a boudoir shoot is what to bring to wear. This bra or that bra, those cheeky panties or the lacie ones? If you decide to have your boudoir session at home than this is not an issue at all because you literally have access to your entire closet. You also get the benefit of not having to lug your clothes around on shoot day. ha!

2. You Will Be More Comfortable

It can be scary, the idea of coming to a strange place to pose naked or mostly naked in front of a strange man. But if you decide to shoot in your own home, you are able to eliminate part of those nerves by being in a place that you are naturally comfortable. It should go without saying, but the easier it is for you to feel comfortable, the more comfortable you will be, and the better your boudoir images are likely to turn out.

3. Your Partner Will Recognize The Location, Increasing Sexiness

It is true, a sexy pose is a sexy pose is a sexy pose, but one other benefit of holding your boudoir session at home is that your partner (assuming these images are for a partner) will easily be able to recognize your bed or your couch or your kitchen. The fact that you are posing sexy in these places that are familiar to your lover will make the photos all the more sexy and enticing to them.

    Great article. Curious what are some of the lightning obstacles you've come across and what have you done to overcome them? Thank you!
    • Hey, Thanks Marco! The biggest lighting obstacles I have encountered in the home has to do with furniture or beds not being in ideal positions to capture the window light as I need. In some cases I am able to move things to fit what I need, and in others I have to find a way to work with what I have.
