You ready for it, ladies?? I'm going to give you the KEY to outstanding boudoir photos. It's the sexiest thing you can wear. The answer isn't lingerie, your beau's favorite shirt, or nothing at all. The answer is: YOUR BEAUTIFUL SMILE. Yes, that's right. I said it. It is OK to smile/laugh in your boudoir photos. Not only is it OK, but a full-forced laugh while you're sprawled out on your bed, in my opinion, is insanely sexy. There is really nothing more attractive than a woman who loves life. Do you know what else? It's probably going to be a lot easier for you to burst into laughter during your shoot than it will be for you to sport a sultry "come hither" look. I don't encourage my clients to smile for their photos because I want the smile, when it happens, to be genuine. I don't want it to be posed, staged, faked, or the like. I want actual emotion.
Some of my favorite boudoir shoot moments came from my clients rolling into a fit of laughter after I ask them to give themselves a sexy hug. Sometimes that laugh happens because I say an incredibly immature word hoping to elicit emotion (you'll know it when you hear it, ladies. And.it.works.every.time.) SOMETIMES I don't have to do anything at all, and you just laugh because you're feeling totally awkward. That's ok, too! No matter how we get it, I love it, and you will too, and so will anyone you show the photos to. Seeing a person laugh is like looking through a window to their soul. You see it all, baby! SO, sure, I get it--the sexy face has it's time and place in boudoir. BUT, if you are lying there being photographed and you have the urge to laugh uncontrollably...please don't fight it.
