Getting Ready

1. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate! Before arriving at Lauren Ashley Studios, it’s essential to stay hydrated. Drinking lots of water not only keeps your skin looking fresh but also helps you feel more energetic and confident. Proper hydration can make a big difference in how you look and feel during your session.

2. Wear Comfortable, Loose Clothing To avoid any unwanted lines on your skin, we recommend wearing comfortable, loose-fitting clothing prior to your arrival at the studio. This will help ensure that your skin looks smooth and flawless in your boudoir photos. Don’t forget to come braless, as you’ll have the opportunity to change privately once you’re here.

3. Use Clear Deodorant Clear deodorant is a must to avoid any unsightly white marks or pilling on your beautiful lingerie. Opting for a clear deodorant will help maintain the pristine look of your outfits throughout the session.

4. Moisturize Your Skin Before your boudoir session, pamper your skin with your favorite lotion. Hydrated skin looks radiant and enhances the overall look of your photographs. Plus, it’s a wonderful self-care step that can boost your confidence.

What To Bring

– Simple Jewelry: A few well-chosen pieces of jewelry can add a touch of elegance and personality to your boudoir photos.

– Lingerie: Bring your favorite lingerie that makes you feel the confident and beautiful. Solid colors are recommended!

– Knee-High Socks: Knee-high socks are playful accessories that can complement your look and make you feel more at ease during your session.

– Oversized Sweaters: An oversized sweater can create a cozy, intimate atmosphere and provide variety in your photo set.

– Button-Down Shirt: A button-down shirt can be a sexy and versatile addition to your boudoir wardrobe. You can wear it partially unbuttoned or as a casual cover-up.

– Veil: A veil can add a touch of mystery and allure to your photos. It’s a fantastic accessory for creating visually captivating images.

– Robe and Coverup: Bringing a robe or coverup is essential for moving comfortably to and from the bathroom while changing outfits. Plus, it can be a great prop for some stunning shots.

– Additional Accessories: Feel free to bring any additional accessories that you love and feel confident in. Your session is all about showcasing your unique style and personality. Or if these photos are for a significant other, bring something that they love.

Confidence and Relaxation

Finally, it’s important to remember that your boudoir session is about having fun, embracing your beauty, and celebrating your uniqueness. Here are some tips for staying relaxed and confident during the session:
