Is an In-Home Boudoir Session Right for You?
When you think of having a boudoir session, you probably imagine it will take place in a photographer’s studio. The idea of having photos taken of you in your underwear in an unfamiliar place can make even the bravest women a little hesitant, and at Lucidaré Studio we recognize that.
We always try to accommodate our clients and have their comfort as our top priority, which is why we offer boudoir photography sessions both in our studio and on-location. We will travel to your place of comfort for your boudoir session if that’s what you prefer.
If you’re unsure that an in-home session is right for you, here are a few reasons women choose to shoot in their own home and why we love the choice:
You’ll be more at ease.
When asked where you feel most comfortable, the majority of responses will be at home. It’s where we spend most of our time, relax with loved ones, and lay our head down to sleep at night. Because of these reasons it only makes sense that you’d feel more at ease during your shoot when you’re in your own home. You’ll be in the environment where you feel most relaxed, and that will help eliminate any tension or nervousness that could come across in your photographs.
You’ll have access to your entire wardrobe and various props.
It can be difficult to decide exactly what piece of lingerie or clothing to bring to your shoot. When you shoot at your home you’ll have every article of clothing, jewelry, and shoes right at your fingertips. You can look through your closet (or your significant other’s) with your photographer and narrow down the pieces that will work best for your shoot. Your photographer may even see something you’d never think to wear.
Apart from clothing, you’ll also have access to a variety of props you wouldn’t otherwise. Perhaps your significant other has a sports or music collection they admire – instead of lugging the entire collection to your shoot you’ll be able to shoot right where it’s located.
The images will have more of a personalized touch.
While having your boudoir session in the studio will certainly deliver great results, being able to shoot in your own home adds something to your images you just can’t get anywhere else. The images will be in the bed you share with your significant other, in the kitchen where you cook together, or in their home office where they spend a lot of their of time.
Being able to see you in an intimate way in their everyday places will help add a thrill to the images, and make them even more enticing.
Don’t think your home is good enough?
If the idea of an in-home boudoir session sounds appealing to you, but you’re afraid your home isn’t up to par, don’t worry! You don’t need to live in an elaborate or perfectly decorated home to have a great shoot. If you have a couple of windows that can provide natural light, that’s all we need. Your shoot will be in the home you share with your better half, the one place in the world that reflects your personality and your personal touches, and no matter what type of home you live in, the images will be special because it is your special place.
