FAQs for Couples’ Boudoir Photoshoots: Answering Your Burning Questions
ONE: Getting Your Partner to Say YES to a Couples’ Boudoir Photoshoot
Some partners (especially men) can feel hesitant about doing a boudoir session. But that’s only because most boudoir photos we see are of women by themselves. Plenty of men actually do couples’ boudoir - they just aren’t shown as often. A quick search on Pinterest or Google, and you’ll have plenty of ammo to convince your partner! Better yet - just show them this blog post. Because, well, it's HOT AF!
And if you’re the partner being asked to participate - think about the photoshoot as the ultimate gesture of love. It’ll show your partner how much you mean to them and probably open the doors to exploring in the bedroom. Who wouldn’t want that?!?
TWO: Get to Know Your Boudoir Photographer
Schedule a free consultation and lets get you scheduled and chat about what your goals are out of our couples boudoir session.
Before your session during our second call "planning call," I’ll chat with you and your partner to make sure we’re all on the same page. My goal is to ease any anxiety by answering any questions either of you have before the big day!

THREE: Setting Boundaries and Expectations
The best way to feel comfortable doing anything new is to know what you’re getting yourself into. Am I right?
When we plan your session, we’ll cover your level of comfort with intimacy, nudity, and vision for your shoot. Being as transparent as possible before your session is what’ll help you feel most relaxed during the photoshoot.
And don’t worry, we only move at your pace. We’re not going to jump straight into the most steamy poses.
Just like a teenage makeout session in the backseat of your car, we’ll start at first base.
FOUR: Calming Nerves about “Posing”
Nervous about posing in your skivvies? This is SO common, even for solo boudoir shoots. But think of your session less as “posing” and more like “acting.”
Here’s a FUN homework assignment:
Take an evening (or hell - take a whole day) with your partner and pretend you’re in a movie scene. Touch, caress, kiss, and make out. See how much fun you can have at home together without going all the way.
Take it as a lesson in teasing - because that’s EXACTLY what it’ll be like during your session. What happens after you leave the studio…well, that’s up to you!
FIVE: Set the Mood with Music
Music is a total mood-setter. She's THE IT GIRL. So, to really spice your session up, bring in tunes that make you and your partner feel sexy as hell!
Want another fun assignment? Make a SEXY playlist with your partner. Use it for your session and for your lesson in "acting" I just listed above!
And if you’re unsure or need a little help, we’ll handle the music.
And that’s a wrap on creating the perfect couples’ boudoir photoshoot!
Date nights only go so far. But a couples boudoir photoshoot?
That’s an experience that you’ll remember for years to come!
Couples boudoir photos can be done at any time, but they’re also great for special occasions to treat and celebrate each other.
We’re talking Valentine's Day, Engagements, Anniversaries, and JUST BECAUSE!
