Boudoir can be a very glamorous experience. You can have a professional hair and makeup artist pamper you and doll you up - it's a fantastic experience that can really make you feel like a goddess. However, it isn't a mandatory part of the process (I can hear all the other boudoir photographers and MUAH's groaning and rolling their eyes at me). But seriously. You are sexy. Just as you are. And, I'm going to tell you a secret. You can totally own that natural sexiness!
I recently did a shoot with a fantastic woman. My favourite part of our shoot was the complete natural approach. Her hair was loose, her makeup was minimal. There was no fake-eyelashes, no red lips, no blush. Just her. Totally owning it. I loved it!
I'm not saying everyone should forgo professional hair and makeup for their shoot. It definitely helps take the shoot to the next level - you'll feel like an absolute bombshell. But you're already a bombshell! Sometimes the professional artist can help you see what we already see - but if you ever feel like taking the plunge and doing a more natural boudoir session, I am 100% here cheering you on!
