A boudoir photoshoot can be a nerve-wracking experience, right?! It’s SO NORMAL to feel anxious or self-conscious! Trust me, girl, you are not alone! But as a Sioux Falls Boudoir photographer with years of experience, I’ve learned a few tips and tricks to calm the nerves before your boudoir session. These will help you feel HOT, confident, and a little more relaxed so you can leave feeling like the BEST version of yourself!
This is probably one of the BEST things to do, not only to help calm the nerves, but just to feeeeel better! Drinking water can help you feel refreshed and energized! You definitely do not want to feel tired or lethargic; you need to embrace spicy, fun, and good energy! Drink tons of water leading up to your shoot, and start your day with some too!
You know that song that just gets you in the BEST mood?! That one song you can ALWAYS count on to get you out of a funk or turn your day around?! Play it LOUD! Music is such a powerful healing tool and can bring instant relief to soooo many in such a different way! Make a playlist or keep that special song on repeat!
One of the BEST ways to calm your nerves before your boudoir session?! Positive self-talk. Don’t focus on all the negatives, focus on the beautiful things that make you, YOU! Your beautiful curves, your hot body, gorgeous hair…everything! You are stepping out of your comfort zone and finally doing something for yourself! You deserve this girl, OWN IT! Be kind to yourself and remember that you are beautiful, just as you are.
Breathing exercises can be soooo helpful in reducing anxiety and stress. Take a few deep breaths before your boudoir photoshoot, inhaling through your nose and exhaling through your mouth. This can help to slow down your heart rate and calm your nerves. We are here for you! We got you!
Last but not least, trust me, you are going to ROCK this. I am here for you. I will guide you through the ENTIRE session! Rylee had this to say about her experience, “My experience with Emma was amazing!! I had a blast with her! I was very nervous for my shoot and she made me feel comfortable, [and] I would highly recommend Emma and doing a boudoir shoot to anyone(even if it’s not your thing)!! It’s a total confidence booster!!”
The time is NOW to do something for yourself! You are worthy of feeling beautiful, confident, and empowered to live your best life. Find that perfect lingerie set and I’ll see you in the studio!
Boudoir photography celebrates all the ways your crazy beautiful body has held you up, moved you forward, and turned you into a woman who can get. it. done. Sis, that is something that should make you proud.
