Sexy is in the eye of the beholder.

Sexy does not necessarily mean less/no clothes. Here are some theme ideas:

  • Men’s dress shirt (white is my favorite) paired with panties, loose tie optional, fedora is a fun one. Heels or bare feet.
  • Boyfriend/husband’s favorite t-shirt with cute panties. Fun knee high socks add a cute element
  • Swimsuit in/by the pool
  • White sheet, wrapped up in
  • Shawl/cover up loosely wrapped in
  • Bra/pantie set
  • corset and panties (stunning -highly recommend, particularly for curvier figures)
  • Sheer shirt, tank top or camisole with panties
  • vintage night gown or slip
  • sexy costume
  • topless with casual jeans (use arms to cover breasts or lay stomach down.)
  • apron, panties and heels (recommend “cooking” props: cookbook, bowl and whisk, cake/cookies on a plate, etc.)
A woman with tattoos poses confidently and sexy in a sheer white skirt and glasses against a black background.
A woman in a red slip dress standing by a window, gazing outside with confidence and a thoughtful expression.


  • Jewelry: Anything from chunky to elegant. If you’re going for a dramatic look, try rhinestone/costume jewelry, chandelier earrings, even a bracelet. Bring options and we can work with it. For an understated look, small earrings/studs and a simple necklace that has significance ads a really nice touch. You don’t have to wear jewelry, but often it’s lovely to add.
  • Shoes: Just as important as underwear! It’s amazing what a splendid pair of shoes can do for a boudoir shoot. Sultry heels do amazing things for a sexy outfit.
  • Hosiery: Thigh highs, fishnets, and garters all great ways to add more touches to your look
  • Other: men’s hats, masquerade mask, men’s ties, fresh flowers/petals, vintage coca cola bottle(s), martini or other adult beverage in appropriate glass, hand fans, pillbox hats, feather boas (though I think these tend to be a bit over the top if not done correctly) big feathers, paper parasols, fruit (apples are great, add a lovely pop of color, but a bunch of grapes can look stunning, too.) Candy -big lollipops, cotton candy on a stick, licorice, etc.

Night before prep:

  • DO NOT WEAR anything with elastic for 24 hours before the shoot.  It will leave marks that are hard to hid/cover up.  This means NO BRAS!  I know it may suck but you will look better!  I promise!
  • You can wear panties as long as it is NOT TIGHT.  
  • Please don’t starve yourself!  You look amazing as you are and will need lots of energy to get thru this.  
  • Your shoot time will FLY by. Be prepared and think about all the outfits you want to wear.
  • Get plenty of sleep. Your eyes will not look good on 3 hours of sleep.

Day of prep:

  • Plan to get to location early to plan for traffic and get prepared.
  • Be ready to shoot when your hour starts.  You have an hour only.  If you are still getting ready during your hour, you will loose that shooting time.
