Start Preparing for a Boudoir Session with Simply Luminescent
One of the reasons you are considering booking with my team – I provide outfits meaning you could essentially show up with only underwear/bras and have a great session. I do this to take away as much stress as possible from your shoot.
I provide a vast array of outfits from xs to 4x in many styles and sizes. The most important part of lingerie is that it fits you and you feel good wearing it. No matter what body shape or size you are BODYSUITS are my main recommendation for you.
You can be as nude, covered, implied, or elegant as you want these shoots are all about you and my consultation questionnaire helps us figure out what will be best for you. You also can smile, laugh, be serious, sexy or bubbly how you want to look and feel is what matters.
Another reason women choose me for boudoir is this studio loves return clients and we specialize in more than boudoir alone. Any new portrait or boudoir shoot after the first round comes with a special booking discount ( return client discount ) we also have an amazing referral program!
Shop In your own closet first
Simple is more with boudoir items like your favorite over-sized sweater, those super high heels that never get worn in public, crop top shirts, ripped jeans, thigh high pantyhose, lingerie you already own, those fancy lace or strappy undies, that cute lace bra etc.
Something personal to you or your significant other is always a great idea like a button up shirt or his/her favorite outfit on you.
The options are endless for what you already have. Avoid clothing isn't fitting properly.
If you bring NEON colored items I have amazing lights and colored lights we can use to play up the neon colors, its so fun!
Book with Ashley by discussing the process and pricing. Book your photoshoot date and fill out our planner and prepayment plan.
Book your session 3 months in advance to take full advantage of our prepayment plan options!

Now that we have covered how to prepare your body and wardrobe the weeks leading up to your shoot, let's talk about shopping places that I like and best types of outfits to be considering if you are going to make purchases.
Places that I shop from for our own client wardrobes:
yandy > One of my favorites they have xs-4x, the shipping time is very fast, true to sizes
adoreme > A bit more on the expensive side but the bra/panty combos are so gorgeous. Shipping is also fast and sizing is true.
amazon > Great deals can be found, prepare for longer shipping waiting time, be sure to read all the sizing info and buy appropriately.
forever21 >These run a bit on the smaller side of sizes, fast shipping, some great deals in the lingerie area.
torrid > Excellent products and true to size for our curvy babes, a bit expensive fast shipping.
What you should buy or focus on buying:
Deep color tones like hunter green, burgundy, navy etc..
Pastel colors are gorgeous too
Sheer anything is amazing
BODYSUIT lingerie especially if you are one of the girls whose insecure areas is their stomach or breast.
Heels they make legs look longer and slimmer
Pantyhose or thigh highs add a great touch to any outfit
Teddies are gorgeous
Bra/Undie combos are timeless and cost friendly
Avoid these things when choosing lingerie to purchase:
Too tight of a fit
Babydoll style lingerie
outfits that are covered in designs. we want simple outfits so the focus stays on YOU
