Boudoir Photography Ideas For Valentines Day Sessions

Boudoir Photography Ideas For Valentines Day Sessions

Valentines day brings about many boudoir photography ideas and brainstorms. Not only is it a great holiday for making extra cash from easy to do boudoir sessions, but it isĀ  also one of the easiest holidays to shoot for as far as props are concerned. Florists raise their prices and it’s one of their biggest selling days of the year too. The same goes for chocolate candy companies and lingerie companies. One thing we want to stress here is less is more and simple is always better.

Boudoir Photography Ideas For Valentines Day Props

The props we typically use on Valentines day shoots are boxes of heart shaped chocolates, red roses and any number of heart shaped additional props that can be found and bought from a multitude of places. Plan on having several different styles, shapes an sizes of heart shaped chocolate boxes on hand as well as a few dozen roses. Try to get the roses a day or two ahead of your big shoot day.Usually the roses get de-petaled or trashed while being used for the boudoir shoots for Valentines day, so we have plenty of extra around. Also have several sets of red satin sheets if you use a bed for the boudoir sessions. They compliment a Valentines day shoot and can be ordered from Amazon.com.

One of our typical boudoir photography ideas we do is we usually have a Valentines boudoir shoot special where we line up a few shoots and knock them out in a day or two day shooting period. This way we can lump 3-4 shoots into one day and make a better chunk of money.

Take a look at the following picture. Usually we use maybe one or two props in a shot at the most, two or more is getting cluttered and looks fabricated or forced. For this reason we say that less is more and simple is better. In the following picture the client has on a piece of pink lingerie, red satin sheets, a box of chocolates and a bunch of roses. A little too much for our liking and you can see why we try to use only one, maybe two props in one shot.
