Define Your Why
Knowing why you want to have a professional lingerie photoshoot is essential. It’s important to know if the goal of your session is to celebrate an accomplishment like a new job, graduation, fitness goal, etc. or if your goal is to reclaim or explore your sensuality.
It’s important to start your lingerie photoshoot with the right inspiration. Get familiar with lingerie trends, design aesthetics and overall styling. Collect images from magazines or online to provide a mood board for you and your photographer. This will help ensure that all efforts are aligned towards creating an aesthetically pleasing and unified look. And don’t limit yourself to just boudoir images for inspiration. At Lunar Body Boudoir, we want to see what type of lighting you love, what color schemes speak to you, and all design details.
Be Open Minded
A key tip for planning your perfect lingerie photoshoot is to be open minded. Do your part and do take time to know why you really doing a boudoir session, collect your inspiration, and communicate it to your photographer.
Once you’ve done your part, trust your photographer to take your inspiration and use their expertise in posing, lighting, and styling to artistically tell your narrative through their photography.

The wardrobe has garments ranging from skirts, gowns, robes, to classic lingerie. Our client closet sizes range from 5XL-00 as well as shoes and accessories!

Our studio sends our clients several curated guides that help answer questions like, “Do I supply my own lashes for my boudoir session?” and “Do you have lingerie available to use?” All studio communication from the studio is sent out in segments to help guests prepare for their boudoir photoshoot. We send a hair and make-up guide, a boudoir preparation guide, an investment guide, as well as a product guide.
