SJP Boudoir Experience

Naturally, every client wants to know what to expect during a boudoir session. SJP boudoir and beauty sessions usually last about 2-3 hours, and are very laid-back with no harsh lighting or cumbersome gear. A boudoir shoot should be done wherever you will feel most at ease. This could be your own home, in our studio, a hotel room, or a secluded spot outdoors – really anywhere with adequate lighting can be striking! Champagne and music can do wonders for ambiance, but if that isn’t your thing, be assured that after the first few clicks, and some gentle encouragement, you will loosen up. Some clients will prefer to stay mostly under a sheet or pretty robe, and some are daring enough to go more risqué. There is no right or wrong, and either way will super fun, and classy AF.

SJP Tips: How to Prepare

Don’t spend a lot of time fretting about freckles or that pesky five pounds none of us can ever seem to shake. Focus on your favorite qualities and play to your strengths. You can trust that I will be able to direct the most flattering angles for your body type.

Beauty- pamper yourself with a spa day to prep your skin. Consider a facial, body scrub, waxing, and manicure. I recommend choosing a neutral color for your nails, like nude or blush, to match all of your outfits.

Styling- Try not to wander too far outside your comfort zone. If you love being dressed up in sparkles and heels, then full-on dramatic make-up will look great on you. If you’re more bohemian or sporty, keep it more natural and soft.

What to Wear?

Wardrobe- Get fitted for a new undergarments.

Lingerie looks best when it’s form-fitting like push-up bras, snug tank tops, and camisoles.

Vintage lace. Silk robe. Negligées, corsets, stockings. Anything sheer, flowy, or floral.

For sports-fans, try something that’s his like a button-down collared shirt, necktie, a comfy old tee shirt, or a favorite team jersey.
