Step 1:
Once you get to the location you’ll probably notice a little something. Remember when we asked you what your favorite music was? Well now it’s the soundtrack to your day, and we’ve set up a playlist just for you.

Step 2:
First thing we’ll do, when you get in, is to spread out all of those beautiful outfit choices (we recommend you bring 8-10 so we have a lot to choose from.  We will shoot 4.). This is also when we’ll discuss the narrative of the boudoir shoot, and what feel you’d like to go for, based off of the outfits you brought.

Step 3:
Now that we’ve picked out your wardrobe choices, it’s off to hair and makeup. You’ll experience the true star experience with our expert artist as, together, you chat about what look you’re hoping to pin down. Don’t worry, this is a completely interactive experience! Feel free to ask questions, and to give input throughout the process. Not sure what look to go for? Check out our post for 3 Boudoir Looks to Boost your Photo Shoot!

Step 4:
Now that you’re feeling (and looking) fabulous, it’s off to the shoot! We’ll start you off with the outfit you feel the most comfortable in, and then work through the other 3 outfits. Don’t stress about facial expressions or what poses you’ll be doing, we’ll coach you through each and every one, and show you pictures along the way.

Step 5:
Two weeks after your shoot we will meet for an ordering appointment. You’ll get to choose from 50 of your best photos, each beautifully retouched and magazine ready.  You will have the opportunity to choose your album or wall art designs right then and there. If you think you might want wall art try to bring some pictures of the space you’re considering, to make envisioning it that much easier. Closets, bathrooms and bedrooms are just a few of the spaces you can spruce up with your new photos!

Throughout this process, it’s our mission for you to have fun and feel great about your photo shoot. We’re here for you along the way. If you have any other questions feel free to reach out to us directly at naportraits@gmail.com

The pre-boudoir panic: We have all been there.

You are excited, and you’ve booked the perfect dream shoot…but the moment you put down the phone you have a million questions. WHAT NEXT!?

Confidence is your first key to success. A confident woman is a beautiful, sexy and strong woman, and while you might feel like you’re going to botch the whole thing, and your nerves are going out of whack, here’s what you can do to ace your shoot and look like the soulful sultry goddess you are.


1. Choose your outfits carefully
Flowy lingerie, like babydoll negligees, may seem gorgeous on the hanger, but when it comes to your photoshoot you should stay as far away from them as possible. Not only can these have an unflattering affect on your body, they’re much harder for your photographer (me) to retouch. If you accidentally bring one, don’t worry, I’ll just be sure to tie it back.

2.  Don’t survive off lettuce
One of the biggest mistakes that women make when they book a boudoir photoshoot is to starve themselves in order to make it ‘work.’ Hun, the only thing you need to make work is your bad-ass bod. You might not think it, but posing is a lot of effort and you’ll be burning calories the whole shoot. I like to call it posing yoga for a reason! Believe me, the last thing you want is to have to end early because your blood sugar drops.

3. Don’t hit the gym to punish yourself
You don’t need to start working out five times a day because you scheduled a photoshoot. The real beauty of boudoir is up to the photographer (ME! Its all in my hands. That is why TRUST is such a HUGE thing for boudoir) and heavily depends on lighting, angles and poses. That’s why it’s an artform. That is why I am an artist. Take my advice and avoid the drama; I can make you look better than you would after 6 months in the gym.

Whatever you choose to bring to your photoshoot, remember that boudoir is as much about highlighting your inner beauty, as it is your outer. Follow these three rules and you’ll be well on your way to making the absolute most of your photoshoot.
