Get ready to embrace your true essence and create unforgettable memories through the art of boudoir photography.

Communication is Key:

From the moment you book your session it’s important to have open and honest communication. From discussions of your vision, preferences to any concerns you may have. Freedom to share your inspirations, ideas, and even your insecurities really help your photographer to be on the same page with you. Recognizing your individuality and creating a customized experience that reflects your essence helps to make your boudoir photos that much more meaningful and the experience more rewarding.

Wardrobe and Styling:

Selecting the perfect wardrobe is an essential aspect of your boudoir photoshoot. We recommend bringing a variety of outfits that make you feel confident and beautiful. Consider bomb shell lingerie sets, elegant silk or lace robes, even a pair of jeans or favorite oversized sweater could help show off that playful/cozy side of you. Don’t forget to bring those killer heels to complete some of your looks, but we love the simplicity of bare feet too.

Professional Hair and Makeup:

To ensure you look and feel your absolute best, professional hair and makeup is a wonderful added service which really ups the glam in your session. At French Kiss, this service is included as standard with every session. Our talented artist(s) will collaborate with you, enhancing your natural beauty and bringing out your inner radiance. Sit back, relax, and let our experts pamper you before stepping in front of the camera.

The Photoshoot Experience:

During your session, our goal is to create a comfortable and empowering environment, which starts by getting to know you through all the interactions we’ve had prior to your session and then gaging how nervous you feel the day of. We’ll guide you through various poses and expressions, capturing your natural beauty and showcasing your confidence. Expect a two-hour immersive experience where we’ll laugh, arch a lot, and create magic together. We’ll provide gentle direction while encouraging your individuality to shine through.

Viewing Session:

After your photoshoot, we’ll schedule a virtual viewing session for you to select your favorite images. This personalized experience allows you to review a curated gallery of your stunning portraits and choose the ones that resonate with you the most. We’re here to offer guidance, answer any questions, and help you create cherished keepsakes that celebrate your journey.
