Let’s be honest. We all have a few (or more than a few…) saved in our camera roll, posted on Instagram, or set as our profile picture on Facebook. And if we’re being even more honest, you might just have a few intimate selfies too (come on, we know you’ve snapped a selfie of your booty before).
So while there will always be a place for the good old selfie, don’t you think you deserve better when it comes to the more intimate photos of yourself?
We’ve heard it before, “I don’t need to do a boudoir shoot because I can take the same photos by myself.”
Let’s talk about the top 3 challenges the ‘selfie‘ boudoir shoot will give you:
Setting up for a boudoir shoot can be a lot of work. Removing clutter, rearranging furniture, and you don’t want to forget to take down that family photo…because that would be awkward. Not to mention the challenge of having the house to yourself. Better call the babysitter.
Photographers have a detailed eye and can spot when things are out of place. We know how to stage a room to create a warm, intimate environment, and will remove any distractions that might take away from the shoot.
Your camera might have a great auto focus feature, but the minute you hit that timer, there’s no guarantee as to what the focus area will be. If you’re behind the camera setting things up, then you’re not in front of the camera which means the chair or the pillow might get all the glory.
With a photographer, we know where to put the focus to highlight your best features, and can even take attention away from an area you’re less hot about. Looking for a more artistic shot, or maybe an implied nude? Easy. With an iPhone? Not so much.
Unless you’ve done this before, posing for a sexy self-timed photo can be hard. Really hard. And don’t even think about holding your phone out for a full body shot (your arms aren’t long enough).
Does your butt look okay? Did you blink? Does it look like you have a double chin?! 80% of the photos you take will get deleted because the way your body was positioned wasn’t flattering. Oh, and remember you have to think about all of this while you’re running back and forth from the camera to the bed to get back into your ‘pose’.
Skip the hassle and hire a professional. We have the advantage of having a 360 view of your body, so we know when something needs to be adjusted to make sure you look your best. No guess work here. We pose and coach you to ensure that all of the photos we show you are worth keeping.
This summer, skip the selfie and hire a professional. #StopWaitingand call us to book your boudoir shoot!
