5 Simple Tips To Make Your Boudoir Session Amazing


As the day of your boudoir photography session nears in Melbourne, it is 100% normal to be nervous. In fact, we don’t think I've had one single client yet that hasn’t expressed some degree of nervousness heading into their session. Nerves are to be expected, especially if this is your first boudoir experience (download my guide on how to prepare for your boudoir session). What I find after we get into the session is those nerves disappear as comfort levels and trust with me builds up. I've provided 5 simple tips below to help make your boudoir session nothing short of amazing.

The number one killer of momentum in a boudoir session is a hunger client. 

Boudoir sessions can last several hours, which includes hair, make-up, and the photoshoot itself. Very quickly, it can turn into a long afternoon, especially if you haven’t eaten anything (or enough), and energy and enthusiasm can wane halfway through the session. Take care of your body on photoshoot day by eating a substantial breakfast or lunch. While I do provide snacks and refreshments as part of my full-service offerings, you’ll be much happier during your session if you’re not thinking about how hungry you are during it

Let Your Body Relax

Do yourself a favor and stretch, practice yoga, dance, or whatever it is you do to feel more connected in body and mind. This not only brings about mindfulness and relaxation but it will put you in touch intimately with how your body moves and feels. As an added bonus, it may even let you stretch that extra little bit into you favorite sexy pose!


When you schedule a boudoir session with Le Chat Noir Boudoir, one of the many perks is access to my LINGERIE GUIDE. 

However, you know what you like…nay, LOVE, best. When it comes to wardrobe, confidence is key. Bring along your favorite lingerie sets or matching bra & panties. If lingerie isn’t your thing, we can work with that too! The beauty of boudoir photography styles is that you can be just as sexy and sultry in a favorite t-shirt, lingerie, or your birthday suit!


Prior to your boudoir session, I will advise clients to keep their toes pointed, backs arched, booty out, shoulders down, and good posture when required.

These all serve to elongate your body that creates flattering shapes and curves.

Practice on your own before your photo session on pointing your toes, arching your back, and good posture.

I love when clients come prepared and the results are incredible!


A vital component of any boudoir session is Trust. By now you’ve done your research on how to pick a boudoir photographer in Melbourne and have had a free phone consultation with them. You’ve chosen your boudoir studio and photographer for a reason; they know what they are doing, have experience, and create a body positive atmosphere to help you express your best, most beautiful self. And of course, your images are YOUR IMAGES. We will never post or promote your images with your permission; boudoir is very personal and intimate experience, only you should have the final say in who gets to enjoy your boudoir photos.

Once you have posed for your first boudoir photoshoot and seen the results, you will know how good it feels to see yourself in your truest, most uninhibited form.

Some women share their boudoir photos with their partners, and others keep the photos as a gift of self-love for just themselves.

Some women share their photos on social media for the world to see or with other women to inspire them and show them that boudoir photoshoots are not something to be feared but rather embraced.

Regardless of who you share your photos with, there is generally one constant: owning your sexuality is an amazing, empowering feeling.

To allow someone else to see you at a vulnerable moment takes remarkable strength and confidence, and the benefit to them will make it all worth it, especially if they are moved to do their own photoshoot.
