Outfit inspiration: The sexy robe

By far, the most popular outfit we see at our sessions are matching bra & panty sets. They are great because they come in so many colors and styles and are usually easy to find no matter what store you’re shopping in. Sometimes, however, adding a little somethin’-somethin’ to this pairing can make a huge difference in your photos. Elegant and timeless, the beautiful sheer robe in the photo below absolutely made this outfit. Paired with simple black lingerie and classic bombshell red lips you can’t go wrong!  After all, the key to having a great photoshoot is good styling, expert posing, and of course confidence! Don’t worry, we can help you with all three of those things if needed!

T & A Tuesday: All Polished Up

Well, hello there, lovelies!

It’s Tuesday, which means it’s time for some T&A. That’s right: Tips & Advice.

When you decide to do a boudoir shoot, lots of questions might leap to mind. You might be planning your wardrobing choices. Maybe you’re thinking about hair and makeup. Maybe it’s how you might be keeping it a surprise from a very lucky recipient. So, each Tuesday we’ll be here to help you collect up all the details so that you don’t miss a thing—and don’t feel overwhelmed.

Consider this lovely lady and this photo:

Totally beautiful, right? Everything about this shot feels classy, polished, and sexy. Let’s break down why this shot works:

1. She’s wearing a beautiful, simple outfit that flatters.

2. Her accessories add, rather than distract from the shot. Pearls on white? Can’t go wrong.

3. Gray and white: A soothing, sophisticated combo.

But what really adds a wow factor is something you might not think about before opening that hotel-room door to see us: Her nails.

Shots are often very detail oriented or close up. And your hands are a big part of that set-up: If you’re a bride we may want to make sure we get a shot of that stunning sparkler on your finger. You might be trailing your hand along the bed. Or, in this case, she’s clutching her pearls. And the one big *pop* on the page, color-wise? Red nails.

Red nails are sexy. They’re sophisticated. They might signal you’ve put a little more time into yourself—which is a lovely respite, and might also make someone think you’ve been thinking of them. Know what we’re sayin’?

A manicure can go a long way in taking a photo from good to great.

Are you thinking: Yeah, but I walk out of the salon, get my keys out of my purse—and there goes my mani? We hear you. We know of two great services that help preserve the life of your mani (so you don’t have to do it on your way to the shoot). One is Shellac, which is a gel-based polish that cures under a UV light. It lasts a few weeks and then the nail techs can take the polish off with special remover. Some women swear by it. Want something lower-maintenance? A new service called Vinylux is the perfect middle ground: It’s basically the same nail polish, but the formulation allows for it to last for up to two weeks! No return visit to the salon needed. Lots and lots of salons and spas offer Shellac—and Thomas Charles Salon in St. Louis Park does the Vinylux.

Maybe red’s not your thing? Something bright or bold can be sexy—but so can the barely-see-it ballet-slipper pink.

So there you have it: your polish primer for today—a little detail that can go a long way.
