5 Things about Your Boudoir Session/ STL

So you are interested in taking the leap and booking your first boudoir session. Maybe you’ve seen some great boudoir sessions and you’re starting to envision yourself in the studio looking stunning and sexy. But you may have a few questions before getting started. I’m here to tell you that a boudoir sessions is worry-free and FUN and address 5 questions you may have wondered about your boudoir session.

Five things you may have wondered about your boudoir session–

1. Hair and makeup– Who does it how long does it take? How will she know my style?

My makeup artists are AMAZING. You can tell them what you are wanting and they will deliver! If you want, you can check out my Pinterest board for some inspiration to get you started. And I really recommend loose waves for hair. It screams sexy bedroom hair and that’s what we are going for here. You will get your hair and makeup styled up exactly as you want it in my studio before we start your photoshoot.

2. Who else will be there during the session?

Just me, the makeup artist and you. You can also bring a friend if you’d like, or book a session together and make it a girls’ day out! Occasionally I will have my next client in hair and makeup while we are shooting your session, but it’s no boys allowed in the studio!

3. Do I need to research poses for the session?

Nope! I have you covered here. I will pose you from head to toes, including your hair. I am bossy when it comes to posing, so be prepared to be sore the day after your session from arching your back and pointing your toes! Consider your boudoir shoot as your workout of the day. I promise it will pay off and you will look like your best, sexiest self!

4. How many outfits should I bring?

Depending on your session, 3,4, or 6. But I would recommend bringing more, simply because some outfits may photograph better than others! More is always better and then we can pare down from there if we need to. Check out my what to wear blog series for some ideas and inspiration!
Part 1– Comfy
Part 2 – Sexy
Part 3 – Plus Size

5. Will I be nervous?

Understandably, first being in the studio, you may be a little nervous but the nerves will wear off quickly, especially with the help of a mimosa! After the first outfit, most girls are feeling their sexiest and ready to rock the next outfit– once that mimosa kicks in and once you realize how amazing you look! It is easy to get comfortable in front of the camera when you have makeup and hair done and are feeling gorgeous and sexy! And I will show you some photos as we go along so you can know for sure that the images are looking great!

How is it almost autumn already? Time is flying by and before you know it, it will be Christmas. So now’s the time to start thinking about getting the perfect Christmas gift– but what to get your guy? Instead of spending hours scouring the internet for the perfect, romantic gift, consider a boudoir session. There’s still time to schedule one and I’ll tell you why a boudoir session is the perfect gift for Christmas.

Why a Boudoir Session for Christmas

It’s a gift for you and for him!

Who says pampering yourself is a bad thing? Exactly, no one! You get a day all about you full of blissful pampering with hair and makeup, mimosas, and feeling like the most beautiful woman in the world. And I think you’ve earned yourself some quality girl time– and you can get even more girl time if you book a session with a friend and make it a girls’ day out! Most importantly, once the session is over, you leave with a renewed appreciation of yourself and see yourself for the sexy, beautiful woman that you are. I love watching my clients strutting confidently and feeling empowered and gorgeous after a boudoir session.

Not only will you feel amazing, but he will also get a thoughtful gift and a well-planned surprise! Because, really, he can order that shirt online or at the mall anytime. A boudoir session is not quite as predictable as a bottle of cologne!

And if you’re looking for a gift that will outlast that bottle of cologne, look no further. Your husband will have an enduring souvenir of your beauty, captured in this very moment in time.  Imagine giving your husband a gift that he can look back on many years from now. When you are both old and gray, he will still have your thoughtful and timeless gift.

Favorite Boudoir Outfits// STL

We all know fashion changes every season.  It is hard to stay on top of the new trends. Thankfully, I have clients and friends who help me keep up. I noticed as the year progressed, even my favorite boudoir outfits changed with the trends.

Recent Favorite Boudoir Outfits

I am going to make this an ongoing series a few times a year.   With summer coming to a close, lets talk about the last 4 months of boudoir outfits.

Calvin Klein’s

Calvin’s and an oversized tee are my favorite. Many of my girls choose this boudoir outfit and I will never argue about it.  It’s classy and understated. I can’t photograph it enough.

Thigh Highs and Tanks

Thigh highs and tanks are even better if they have cute sayings on them.  “I just want to drink coffee, save animals, and take naps.” ME TOO!!  These colors are gorgeous and go very well in my studio.

Lacy Lingerie with a Classy Robe

There is something about this combination that I love. It’s feminine, shows off your curves and your legs, and screams boudoir. Pair it with classy heals and you have a gorgeous outfit.

Snapback and Denim

I am not saying everyone should go buy a snapback and denim shirt.  If this fits your personality and style, bring it.  This turned out perfect and completely showed off Makayla’s style.

Black on Black

This black scarf strategically placed and paired with black lace panties in this light gave me all the heart eyes.  Jennifer brought this outfit at the last second, and it turned out beautifully.  Other clients who show up with similar options have been pleasantly surprised as well!

Body Suits

Body suits will forever win for me.  I hope they never ever go out of style.  Ever. They lengthen legs.  Body suits hide flaws. They can be comfortable and sexy.  You can’t lose.

Crop Tops and Underwear

I love crop tops.  Literally love them. See the photo below for reasons why.  It’s fun and flirty. It’s sexy and powerful.  You have worked hard for your abs.  Show them off!

Satin and Lace Cami Short Set

Several clients have come with satin and lace cami and short sets. I can’t show you due to my privacy policy. I didn’t think I would like it.  You can get them at Victoria’s Secret or other lingerie boutiques.  I have several sexy poses for this outfit. On top of that, I would definitely wear this at home!

Boudoir Photography Privacy Policy//STL

A clear boudoir photography privacy policy is important considering everyone knows everything about all things. Social media has made this possible.  I want to assure you that your images are safe with me.  Rest easy knowing I will never show them to anyone without permission.

Boudoir Photography Privacy Policy

boudoir photography privacy policy//coffee cup//comfy outfit//photo by Boudoir by Tracy Lynn//see more at boudoirbytracylynn.com//stl

I take my job as a boudoir photographer very seriously.  Your comfort is the main priority.  Discretion is something you should expect with boudoir photography.  Your career and your private life may depend on it.  I’m not going to be the one to jeopardize that.  Promise. Clients who choose to allow me to share their images sign a release form giving me written permission. If you are okay with your images being on social media/website, please bring it up at the ordering session.  🙂

Some clients love to have their images and the effort they put in shown off on social media and my website.  If you are one of these clients, I would LOVE to use your images.  I appreciate every client who allows this.

What if I only want a few photos shown?

That’s great.  Let me know which ones and I will gladly keep the private!  I will be forever appreciative as well. Several of the images I take may only show a part of the body.  The most private clients allow these to be shown as their privacy remains in tact.

boudoir photography privacy policy //privacy// long sleeve shirt/ black panties//photo by Boudoir by Tracy Lynn//see more at boudoirbytracylynn.com//st louis

What is on the Release Form?

It says I have permission to share the images where I want.  I can use them on social media, my website, other forms of advertising, and competition.  If you choose to only allow certain images to be shown, we will add an addendum to the release form stating which ones you allow.  I follow that addendum to a tee.  I promise.

What about the digital downloads of the photos?

With the purchase of an album, digital files are included.  I upload these images onto an online gallery where you can download them.  The gallery is completely private.  I am the only one who has access to it and can share anything prior to emailing the client the link.  I know who logs into the gallery and when they last logged in.  The gallery expires after two weeks.  The client is to have downloaded AND backed up the images.  At expiration,  I delete the images from the online gallery.  They are backed up on my cloud and hard drives, but aren’t accessible to anyone except me.

Conclusion about the Boudoir Photography Privacy Policy

Honestly, if you really don’t want your images to be used, I won’t be offended or think less of you. My main concern is your privacy.  Don’t worry in the least about pressure to use them in my portfolio. 🙂 It won’t happen!

Need more reasons to do a boudoir photoshoot?  Check out Jennifer’s session here. She said this about her experience

“A friend referred me, and Tracy exceeded my expectations! She was very professional. Still to this day, she continues to carry herself with such professionalism. She knew I had never done anything like this before. Tracy greeted me with a hand crafted champagne glass filled with a light mimosa. Not to mention her studio was so beautiful! Tracy offers a lot of natural lighting which makes the quality of photos extra special. We worked and we worked hard! She stayed completely engaged and was patient with me the entire time. Ladies, I recommend Boudoir by Tracy Lynn. She will provide a great experience while still feeling safe and comfortable. Dignity in private💜.”

Girls’ Day Out Boudoir Photography Session // STL Boudoir Photography

We all know girls just want to have fun! This is what Vi had in mind when she booked with me for a STL boudoir photography session. She knew a girls’ day out would do wonders for getting away from the business and stress of work. So, she grabbed a few of her closest girlfriends and we had a blast while I was taking pictures and they were sipping on champagne; a day full of laughs and beautiful pictures!

About The Ladies

Vi Ho is who initially contacted me about the shoot. She’s a good friend of mine, and I knew from the start this would be a blast. She is a model and a jet-setter; she is bright & vivacious and knows what she wants! Her personality is so electrifying. It was exciting to have a boudoir session with her. She’s always been a supporter of mine, so I’m glad we were able to do this together. I’m also glad I got to meet her gorgeous friends!

First, there’s Ainsley; she’s a bombshell blonde who models, barrel races, and goes to school for being a chiropractor (that’s quite a resume!) We had a lot in common and getting to know her and the rest of the girls was a real treat. Next there was Kendra, who is an author who resides in STL. Don’t let her being a bookworm deceive you; she is charming and sexy all the way. Her gorgeous skin photographed so well! Alex and Madi are also from STL, and their fun and vivacious personalities really enhanced the whole experience from all of us.

The Shoot

We met in my Downtown St Louis, MO boudoir photography studio on Washington Avenue. It was a sunny, gorgeous day outside and the girls totally brought that in with them. Their sparkling personalities and awesome positivity was inspiring for me as a photographer. Our boudoir photography session started by passing out the champagne and snacks– we opted for delicious fruits. As the ladies began getting pampered and sipped on their champagne, I got to snap some gorgeous photos right of the bat.

As we eased into the shoot, we were all having a great time and it only got better! Not just one, but all of their confident souls shined brightly through the makeup, clothes, and whatever else could ever get in the way. This translated perfectly into some amazing boudoir photos! We moved to the rooftops to take advantage of the beauty of the day and got some great pictures up there as well. You could tell these girls really enjoy one another, and really needed a day to appreciate one another and just get away from it all! They got to don their Arch Apparel hats which brought a fun element to our boudoir photography session.

All in all, each girl got to unwind, let loose, and seize the day with one another. I got a lot out of the experience, too. After the shoot, they all went and grabbed dinner in Downtown STL together to round off their girls’ day out.

Why Book a Girls’ Day Out

Admit it: you work so hard for so long and are, in general, too hard on yourself. You don’t get enough “you” time, nor do you get to enjoy time with your girlfriends nearly enough. I believe in this day and age, it’s so easy to get caught up in life. The best way to unwind and get rid of lingering stress is to come to my studio and do a boudoir photography session. I mean it! You get away from the hustle and bustle; you really get a chance to find yourself and embrace your body and mind. If you’re doing it with a group, even better! You and your girlfriends can get together for cocktails, snacks, and a wonderful time together.

Check out my previous post about what services I offer for a party of ladies wanting to do a group boudoir session. Essentially, my service for parties includes many things: champagne avec une collation (champagne with snacks) and pampering, with time divided evenly between your party (for a 3 hour session). The price is $100 per girl with a minimum party of eight, but smaller parties for different prices are definitely negotiable. The experience, though, is what’s so very priceless. You and your friends will be so glad you did it. There is nothing that will shed the stress like shedding your clothes!

These reasons and more are why I truly believe everyone would get something out of a boudoir photography session. As you can see: Vi, Ainsley, Kendra, Alex and Madi had the best of times getting away from it all to come together for a day of fun and relaxation. And the results were stunning! I really loved getting to shoot my friend and supporter and can’t wait to work with her again. If you’re ready to book your session with your friends, or if you’re just wanting to book me for yourself, contact me here. I can’t wait to get to know you and your story.

Shannon hired me in May 2017 for her St. Louis Boudoir Photoshoot.  She found me through my Instagram and decided to book a session after she got back from family vacation in Disney World!  Side note- I think Disney sounds like way more fun when you are an adult and can enjoy it than when you are a kid! I still haven’t been, but it is on our bucket list. 🙂  Follow Shannon’s Instagram as well! After her session with me, she started modeling locally as well. Be sure to follow her modeling.  She is also a student and recently bought her first house! Talk about having her stuff together. I was so impressed when she told me about buying her first house already.

While a bridal boudoir photography album is often used as an excellent wedding gift for your groom, there are other options to add on to that gift. Have you ever given thought to a bridal boudoir video? Perhaps you’ve never even heard of such a thing! It is the perfect gift for your groom in addition with your boudoir photos.

Element of Surprise

If you check out my previous post you will see the reason you should do a bridal boudoir photography album. Now, while your bridal boudoir album may be a surprise and exciting thing to him, a video will surely knock his socks off! I love to suggest my clients send their groom a text or email while he’s getting ready on the big day. In it, include your saucy, sensual bridal boudoir video. He will be floored by your initiative to surprise him; and of course, he will love the boudoir video itself! Just make sure, if you do send it while he’s getting ready, none of his groomsmen are around!

Excitement

Boudoir photos are already provocatively arousing, but a video is all the more exciting! If you were to send him your boudoir video before you actually walk down the aisle, it would heighten his anticipation and excitement. I think this idea is so fun and unexpected! It’s not every day you take off your clothes in front of the camera, and he knows that. A boudoir session will make you feel powerful and sexy, and he will think it is a considerate for him. He will be all the more ready for your first night as a married couple when he gets to see a preview of what awaits him.

Uniqueness

A boudoir photography session as a gift one unlike any other. It shows your fiancé/husband that you took a bold step and embraced your body. And your body is definitely something he appreciates, to say the least! Giving a boudoir album as a bridal gift is special and unique; it is not the average bridal gift and there’s no way he won’t love it. He’ll love seeing your confidence and sensuality. Adding a bridal boudoir video will be the icing on the cake. Images are one thing; video brings things to life. He’ll love the initiative you took to give him something different than just the average gift. Because with a bridal boudoir photo album and video, you’re giving him you!

Contact me today and we’ll set up your boudoir photography session and create a boudoir album and a bridal boudoir video that will have your man’s heart racing! Talk to you soon.

STL Boudoir Photoshoot

STL Boudoir Photoshoot

Jennifer, a wife and mother of one, decided to have an STL boudoir photoshoot a few months ago to treat herself. What better way to do this than with a day of pampering, hair and makeup, champagne and mimosas, and girl time with me?!

 

Meet Jennifer

Jennifer is a beautiful woman inside and out. She is a dance instructor at Pink Lemon Studios and an estetician. She started modeling and is going back to school. On top of this, being a mom and wife is a full time job in itself. She is one busy woman! Her dance classes are getting more and more popular everyday.  Right now, she is teaching a Brittney Spears dance class. It looks like so much fun, even for this girl with no rhythm!

Her Album

Jennifer ended up gifting herself with a beautiful album. It is out of the exclusive Crystal Album Collection I offer.  This is a secret collection and by far one of my favorite albums I’ve created. It’s a 13×9.5 album that comes with 30 GORGEOUS images. This large album collection comes with two 5×7 hardback albums. You can have one for your man and one for yourself.

Testimonial

“Because I have always had such a hidden seductiveness about myself that I wanted to expose. I thought it would be a great idea to express my sexuality to my husband through a custom designed album. When a woman feels sexy it sets precedents to a healthy and beautiful marriage… Doing this session empowered me.”

“I chose Tracy for my STL Boudoir photoshoot because she has great ratings. A friend referred me, and Tracy exceeded my expectations! She was very professional. Still to this day, she continues to carry herself with such professionalism. She knew I had never done anything like this before. Tracy greeted me with a hand crafted champagne glass filled with a light mimosa. Not to mention her studio was so beautiful!

Vi, Ainsley, Madi, Kendra, and Alex all looked so beautiful with the St. Louis Skyline in the background! See more of Vi at this link. 🙂

Beauty Tips//Boudoir by Tracy Lynn//St. Louis

Beauty Tips for Every Day

So, I know we have talked about tips to prep for your upcoming session, but what about beauty tips in general?  I love to talk to women in general about what they are doing to help themselves look and feel beautiful every day.  We had a discussion about it in my Facebook Group a few days ago.  I have finally compiled a list of the best beauty tips discussed below! Let me know what you think. 🙂

Moisturizer

Moisturizer in general was a big discussion in the Facebook group.  Baby oil, coconut oil, and Rose Hip with Vitamin E were the main options. Some girls used baby oil immediately after showering. A few SWEAR by coconut oil. My friend Mihika(below) LOVES the Rose Hip with Vitamin E.  I am using a type of baby oil right now, but no matter what you use, moisturizer is important! Let’s prevent wrinkles!

The Magic of Coconut Oil

Every one LOVES coconut oil right now.  Whether it is here to stay or not, I don’t know.  There are so many things that we are using it for… My friend Makayla(below) uses it to help her hair grow and feel healthier. She puts it in before bed and sleeps with it in her hair.  She also uses it for teeth whitening. Now the hygienist in me is saying just go to the dentist for that, but if it works, then try it I guess!  I had another friend who uses it as moisturizer for her face. Another friend uses it to remove mascara! Do you have any other uses for coconut oil?  I would LOVE to hear them!

Ways to Prevent Sun Damage

So I am VERY anti-tanning.  I don’t want to be a leathery old lady, nor do I want skin cancer. I tanned a little bit in college and after, but not much at all.  We had a little discussion in the group about how to prevent it! The overwhelming response was sunblock with a high SPF, which we all know, but don’t necessary follow(unless we are in the pool right)? Hats, staying in the shade, sunglasses, chapstick with SPF are all other options.  We all want Vitamin D during the summer, but think about what you are doing to your skin long term as well.  A good option for your upcoming session is sunless tanning.  Glow STL is my go to girl for spray tans.  Try her out next time you need a tan!

Lashes

So, this is my suggestion.  I started getting a lash lift in May with Savanah Summer Beauty. OH MY GOSH. Everyone needs to do this. My lashes have NEVER looked better. I rarely have to use mascara, plus they look twice as long! Check out my results below and contact Savanah for your Lash Lift as well.  You won’t regret it! 🙂
