Hello Gorgeous!! It's me, Jaemie Hillbish, with Jaemie Hillbish Photography. I am so glad you’re here. If you have been curious about booking a boudoir session or simply curious as to what a boudoir session is, you’re in the right place. Boudoir is intimate woman portraiture. Whether you are celebrating a birthday, anniversary, or most importantly wanting to celebrate your curves, boudoir is for you.
What To Wear:
I recommend two to three well-fitting lingerie pieces plus the white sheets at the end if you'd like. Lingerie pieces can range from very sexy, modest bralettes / undies, to oversized shirts and off the shoulder sweaters. Bobysuits & Teddys are my absolute favorite because they are flattering on all body types. I have a wide range of lingerie staples in my client wardrobe closet that you are welcome to try on. Black and jewel toned pieces photograph beautifully. I would steer clear of any bright or neon colored lingerie. Team Jerseys and babydoll lingerie often tend to be thick, heavy, boxy fabric that does not show off your gorgeous shape.

Preparing For Your Session:
Be cautious of sun exposure leading up to your session to avoid sunburn, peeling, and tan-lines. Spray tans can be tempting but often times photograph very orange. Consider pampering your nails with a manicure & pedicure; however, natural nails are fine too, just make sure you have no chipped polish. Any waxing should be done at least 48 hours in advance to minimize pinkness. Please remove all tags (even sewn in) from lingerie. Moisturize your skin but please refrain from oil or shimmer. Drink lots of water to ensure your skin is glowing and hydrated.
Day Of Session:
The first 60 mins of your Boudoir experience will begin in Hair and Makeup. You will want to arrive with a clean moisturized face and dry hair. Are you interested in a full glam look? Perhaps a dramatic smoky eye or more of a natural look? Or maybe you are completely unsure? No problem, our professional HMUA artist will work with you to create a look you will love! Once your hair & make up is complete, it will be time to finalize wardrobe. First, we will go through the outfits that you have brought, and then (if you would like), we will go through a few outfits I have pulled from the boudoir closet. The next 90 mins I will pose you from head to toes, no modeling experience required. Seriously!! I will demonstrate and guide you through each pose, even your breathing. It's completely normal to feel a little nervous but, by the time you have nailed your first pose, those nerves have turned into excitement! After a few outfit changes we will wrap up in white sheets.

Ready to book?
Great! Shoot me an email to Jaemie@JaemieHillbishPhotography.com and we will setup a convenient time for your pre-session phone consultation. We will discuss everything from your comfort level (naked, implied nude, sexy lingerie, modest underwear, or off the shoulder sweater) to makeup preference. What size clothing do you wear from size XS - 4x? It will not only help me to understand your body type for posing but also which lingerie to pull from my client closet. We will also go over anything you would like to conceal or emphasize during your session.
