You’re going through Pinterest, Instagram and Facebook before your upcoming boudoir session because you are looking for inspiration for posing examples and maybe trying to pump yourself for your session.
However, do you know how Google searching your health symptoms can leave you feeling overwhelmed not to mention convinced you’ve contracted one of the world’s rarest diseases?
Falling into the social media hole before your boudoir photography session can have a similar effect.
You will find below three reasons why going overboard on the search of photos inspiration might not be so wise:
1) Every photographer’s style is different. Usually when clients search through photos, they’ll send their favorites. I’m OK with taking a bit of inspiration from another creative, however each photographer has their own unique style and tends to stick with that approach. Make sure to choose a Boudoir photographer whose style you love, and don’t expect them to bend too much to fit another photographer’s style.
2) It can turn you off. Looking at a ton of photos of other women leads to an awful game of self-comparison, discouragement and end up wanting to cancel your session.
3) You’re better off trying on lingerie in-person. While you can definitely get some outfit inspiration for your boudoir session, it’s honestly just better to try things on in person to see what makes you feel and look your best. You can also ask your boudoir photographer for some help with that!
4) It can be a waste of time. In other words, you can end up spiraling into a deep dark hole. At best you’ve lost a lot of time, at worst you end up feeling insecure, more nervous, or unsure of yourself.
Leave the posing up to your photographer. It’s their job to make you look good and make you feel fabulous!
