1. Curvy Baddies Welcome

Boudoir photography is a specialized form of photography that captures intimate and sensual images, typically in a bedroom setting. With it’s growing popularity it has expanded outside of the normal confines of the “Boudoir Aspect” and has taken on many themes other than the classic lingerie styling.  The art of boudoir photography has gained popularity in recent years, with more and more people seeking to celebrate their bodies and embrace their sensuality through stunning photos.

For plus-size Baddies, boudoir photography can be even more empowering, allowing them to showcase their beauty and confidence in a way that is often overlooked in mainstream media. Mastering the art of plus-size boudoir photography requires skill, creativity, and a strong understanding of how to pose and capture the unique beauty of each individual.

In this blog, we will provide tips and tricks for posing your beautiful curves , as well as valuable information on body positivity and lingerie choices to help you feel confident and beautiful in front of the camera.

2. Tips for creating stunning shots

To elevate your boudoir experience, we focus on creating a comfortable and empowering atmosphere for you to be yourself. We help you find a wardrobe to help you feel and look your best, along with 15 years of pose coaching and helping to feel comfortable in your skin. We are your personal HYPE Team along the way! We have a questionnaire that will be sent prior to your session to let us get to know you a little better and what you love about yourself! Lighting plays a crucial role – soft, diffused light can flatter contours and create a romantic ambiance. We highly suggest professional hair and makeup for your session. It makes all the difference on camera, as we also suggest a style consult with our resident stylist or Photographer. We do carry sizes XS-4X so if you aren’t feeling too sure about the wardrobe we can help you out!

Here is our get ready guide to help you with some details for your shoot!

We have a few ways to help get you the iconic looks you want with our pose coaching! Using more dramatic lighting can also flatter those curves, and highlight our favorite features. Candid expressions catching you in a laugh or a subtle look down make for some of the most stunning shots.  Consider using props to add depth,interest, and  to customize your experience.

4. Conclusion: Fall in Love with Your Body Where it’s at!

Societal standards are bullshit. There I said it. EVERYBODY is beautiful and don’t let someone tell you it isn’t. With boudoir this style of photography is to EMBRACE what’s already there not to change you. We just wanna change how you see yourself in a positive way. I want you to love your cellulite ( We can do skin smoothing if it is something you want but we suggest very minimal editing, we want you to stay you!), love that C-section scar, embrace that squishy tummy ( it is sexy I promise!), and I want you to see yourself for the undeniable beauty that I capture.  Big or small we all have insecurities and things about ourselves that aren’t our favorite, but I want you to know that no matter what this is the body that has been with you along the way and it deserves to be loved and captured. Let me help you see that!
