Wedding Wednesday: Unveil Your Inner Sexy Side

Nothing is more sexy than confidence! If scheduling a Boudoir photo session has been on your mind, then stop thinking about it.  Life is to short, do the photo-shoot! Whether you are a Bride-to-be or not, do it for yourself. Because sometimes the best moments in your life are the ones you can't tell anyone about. Show them instead, and let their imagination tell the story.  

When you are ready to unveil your inner sexy, make sure to start by booking your dream team. Glam Team + Photographer = Sexy Success. Even the best hair and makeup professionals need help to pull off the perfect boudoir, and that's why we use Chloe, boudoir camera master. The proof is in the pictures and we hope you enjoy!

This time, one of our very own OC Belle's, Joanna, got behind the camera. She's getting married this month, and is surprising her hub-to-be (shhh!!!) with the BEST gift EVER. Naturally, being a hair stylist, she had the luxury of being able to style her own hair and with the help of our fabulous makeup artist, Diane, she was camera ready! 

Loving yourself isn’t Vanity it is Sanity. -Andre Gide

"I was nervous at first, but Chloe made me feel very, very comfortable. It was an amazing experience and I just kept thinking my fiance is going to LOVE this!"  -Joanna

It's important to have fun, be playful and relax during your photo session. The more natural and calm you feel, the easier it will be to let your sexy side reveal itself.  So let your hair down, roll around and even laugh a little.

Bring lots of outfits to create variety with your images. When preparing for your photo shoot, make sure to spend time trying on and testing outfits, says HUFFPOST in their article '10 Tips To Prepare You For Your Boudoir Session.'

Not only is it important to find outfits that make you feel sexy, but that your style also compliments your beautiful features. We love how this blue lace bra makes her blue eyes POP!

Because sometimes noting looks sexier than a woman wearing only a mens dress shirt.... I'd say Joanna's inner sexy has officially been unveiled!

How to Prepare for your Boudoir Photo Shoot

How to Prepare for your boudoir photo shoot

Preparing for your boudoir shoot...

We understand that you may be a little apprehensive about a photo shoot like this, so we have put together a little information on what to expect to help you prepare, relax and enjoy this special experience.

Five - Seven Days Before Your Shoot...

  • Make sure your eyebrows are cleanly shaped, waxed, etc. 
  • If your roots are growing out, schedule a touchup for color and a fresh haircut if you need it.
  • Drink LOTS of water for flawless skin.
  • Schedule a mani/pedi
  • Start using teeth whitening trays if you have them.
  • Try cutting back on your salt intake, if you're worried about being bloated. 
  • Start planning out your outfits, and accessories try them on, dance around! 
  • Do some scrolling on Pinterest to find poses that you like and save them!

One Day Before Your Shoot...

  • Layout your outfits and pack away in an organized fashion, so that when you arrive at your shoot you know what goes together. 
  • Wash your hair, or schedule a blowout to have it professionally done.
  • Shave and moisturize really well.
  • Touch up any chipped nail polish.
  • Review your pose photos and practice a few in the mirror.
  • Pour yourself a glass of wine and go to bed early. Beauty rest is a must!

The Day of Your Shoot...

  • Eat a light breakfast when you wake up, don't starve yourself!
  • Wear loose-fitting clothes so that you don't get any red marks on your skin - ie. tight bra, socks, jeans, etc. 
  • Arrive for your hair/makeup appointment with clean dry hair and no makeup. Moisturizer is ok, just no SPF. 
  • Relax, and be ready to have fun! You are in GREAT hands!

Every woman should do a boudoir photo shoot at least once. Rawr.


You might recognize this blue-eyed beauty. That's Kaity, our Manager/Hair Stylist. No, she is not a professional model.

I repeat. She is not a professional model. She is a hair stylist. 

And, guess what? 99% of our boudoir clients aren't models either. 


She looks like a natural in front of the camera, huh? 

Of course she does! After having your hair & makeup done by the pros, a fresh spray tan, some pretty lingerie, and being posed by an amazing photographer like Chloe Atnip, you can too! Chloe actually used to be a model herself. She helped Kaity get into this beautiful pose below.

HELLO Victoria's Secret!


Or what about this one?

I mean...


Kaity's lingerie game was on point. She had just scored big at her bachelorette party. She took these photos as a gift for her new husband.

How stoked is he?

Best. Wedding. Gift. Ever. 


Some women don't have a suitcase full of lingerie, and use something symbolic of their loved one, or even just a simple white sheet or old jersey can be sexy. Another idea is to use fresh flowers.

We are loving the peonies Kaity used to frame her face, it really brings out her eyes.


And, ahem, her makeup done by our fabulous makeup artist, Diane. 


Every woman should do a boudoir photo shoot at least once. You will never feel more beautiful. More sexy. More confident. More brave. More empowered. It's an invigorating feeling that you deserve to experience at least once, or twice, or a dozen times. The photos don't have to be for anyone but yourself. 

Look at that confidence. Get it Kaity!


It's important to find a photographer that specializing in boudoir. You need someone who will guide you, make you feel comfortable and help you build your confidence. Typically, in your initial photos, you will capture moments of vulnerability and softness and as you keep shooting and build confidence, your photos will evolve into something truly amazing.  

Make sure to communicate with your photographer what you love most about your body, or what your partner finds most attractive about you. And keep in mind - there is just as much sexy in what you don't see. A simple hand, lightly touching the face can be incredibly sexy on it's own. 


We will help you prepare and make you feel like the goddess that you are. We'll glam you up and pump you up!  

You are not too overweight.

You are not too old.

You are not too shy. 

You are beautiful. Embrace your vanity!

And don't forget, we're here for you every step of the way (with a glass of champagne).
