How to Prepare for Your First Utah Sexy Photography Session

Sunday, October 12th, 2014


A boudoir photo shoot is fun and exciting. However, it can also be nerve-racking if it's going to be your first time posing in lingerie. Therefore, it's best to prepare yourself for your first Utah sexy photography session by using the helpful tips below.

Calm Your Nerves with a Relaxing Massage

Not used to being without clothes in front of others? How about undressing for a massage first? It will help to desensitize you from the fear of being anything less than fully clothed. As an added bonus, the massage will help to work out the kinks you might have developed from feeling anxious about your upcoming lingerie photo shoot.

Find a Sexy New Fragrance

Smelling sexy will help you to feel sexy. So if you're having difficulty in connecting with your inner goddess, then it's time for you to shop for a new body fragrance. With a spritz of the right scent, you'll be feeling bold and confident about posing in risqué poses in no time at all.

Get into Yoga

One of the quickest ways to start feeling good about your body is to get into working out. However, if you're nearing the date of your photo session, you probably don't want to start any workout program that's too strenuous in nature. Instead, you should play it safe by sticking to low impact exercises like yoga or walking. Such exercises will help you to feel good about your body without causing you to feel too sore to enjoy your photography session.

Remind Yourself Why You're Doing It

What was your initial reason for scheduling a boudoir photo shoot? Was it to present the finished album as a gift to someone special? Then to encourage yourself, keep thinking about how delighted your special someone would feel upon seeing your sexy pictures.

5 Important Questions to Ask Your Boudoir Photographer

Monday, August 18th, 2014

As a Utah boudoir photographer, I have had all sorts of questions asked by clients before or after a session is booked. These are my top five recommendations for questions to ask any boudoir photographer before you hire.

1. What locations do you use for the photo session?

Why you should ask: It is completely appropriate to find out where your boudoir photo session will take place. You want to feel comfortable and free in this setting. You may even ask to see the location in-person before signing a contract.

OpieFoto's Answer: We have two bedroom studios in a private home for the exclusive use of our clients. Our all-female staff will assist in all aspects of the photo production.


2. What should I wear?

Why you should ask: Experienced photographers have learned what types of clothing work best to create the perfect mood and visual aesthetic. Ask your photographer for some recommended guidelines for what to wear and what not to wear.

OpieFoto's Answer: I highly recommend that clients bring a variety of outfits, especially including a black lingerie set. Also, if your fiancé has given you any items of intimate wear, bring those. Additionally, I offer a selection of outfits and props that you can try out during your photo shoot. Sometimes trying something new results in the best photos!


3. Should I bring any photo props?

Why you should ask: Some items may be unsuitable for boudoir photo shoots, while others may be just right. Ask your photographer for prop recommendations.

OpieFoto's Answer: Definitely bring a few well-selected props that are telling of your personality and relationship with your fiancé. Unique items of jewelry, favorite books, his work shirt, and heels are just a few examples of what you could bring.


4. What poses will I be making?

Why you should ask: Some photographers may have a certain style or regular poses that you may or may not be comfortable with. Don't be afraid to ask, boudoir photographers are usually quite frank. You can also request to see examples from the photographer's portfolio to better understand his/her style.

OpieFoto's Answer: My goal is to create unique, sexy, flattering portraits for all women regardless of body type or age. There is no need to know how to pose, I will guide you through each pose and I know exactly which angles to capture that best exemplify the beautiful woman you are. And there will never be any pressure to reveal more skin than you are comfortable with.


5. How long before I see the photos?

Why you should ask: Each photographer offers different timelines for photo turn-around. It takes time to properly edit and retouch professional photos.

OpieFoto's Answer: There are two options for ordering copies of your boudoir session photos. 1.) After your session grab lunch or a snack and return to order your photos the same day in-studio! 2.) We will set up another date and time for you to come over and order your photos in the studio.

How To Customize Your Boudoir Photo Session So You Look Your Best

Thursday, July 3rd, 2014

You've spent money on an exercise and beauty routine, and you've hired the best boudoir photographer in the Utah lingerie photography industry. How can you make sure you look and feel your very best on the day of your photo shoot?
  • Time your shoot around the events in your life. Take a look at your calendar and consider work or school stresses, wedding planning,  your "time of the month," and other upcoming events. You don't want your shoot to fall on a day when you can't stop thinking about a looming deadline or when you're feeling bloated and tired. You won't be comfortable enough to relax and get in a romantic mood.
  • Consider playing sexy music or having champagne while on set to loosen you up.
  • Browse through your photographer's portfolio and search online or through magazines beforehand to pick out your favorite poses. Try them out at home so you won't be doing them for the first time the day of your shoot.
  • Shop for your lingerie and wardrobe items well before your shoot. You might find exactly what you're looking for on your first trip to the mall, or you may have to order online to find the perfect look. Even then, you need to allow extra time for any exchanges. Opie provides links to her favorite lingerie shops, wardrobe ideas and studio lingerie options. Don't about forget shoes and accessories!
  • Get your hair touched up, a pedicure, manicure, eyebrow touch up, and any waxing or shaving services done beforehand.
  • Moisturize often in the weeks leading up to your shoot so your skin is glowing!
  • You want these pictures to wow anyone who is lucky enough to see them! Professional hair and makeup service during your shoot provides that extra special touch. If you opt for these services, come to the shoot with loose clothing on- to avoid marks, your hair blown out, and a clean and moisturized face.
  • Leave enough time for your shoot so you're not constantly looking at the clock. The session could take up to 4 hours or more, especially if you want to view your images and order prints the same day.  We do ask that you set aside the entire day for your shoot as most are from 10am to 3pm.

Contact us for more information about scheduling a boudoir or lingerie photo shoot and let your inner, innate sexiness come out to play!

Boudoir: Outfit Ideas and Shopping Tips to Rock your Photo Shoot

Monday, June 30th, 2014


So, you've decided to book a boudoir photo shoot. Youre excited and maybe even a bit nervous. Youre wondering, "What on earth should I wear? or What look should I go for? Check out these boudoir: outfit ideas and shopping tips that are going to make your experience easy and enjoyable.

What look do you want?

Theres a wide variety of looks you can go for, for your boudoir shoot. Do you want to be a sexy cheerleader, or would you prefer to wear some revealing lingerie that is sure to make your photos showcase your seductive side? Its imperative to choose a look that is going to make you comfortable. When youre shopping for your outfit, remember that more is less. Its great to add accessories to spice up your look, but dont go overboard. The focus of the shoot is you, not those 5-inch stilettos you're dying to wear.

Putting the outfit together

Make sure when youre shopping that you try your outfits on! You want clothes that are going to accentuate your beautiful body type. You dont want to get an outfit thats skin tight, thats going to make you uncomfortable. For example, why not try a corset or a teddy if youre comfortable with showing that much skin? If you want something a little more conservative, how about wearing a cute tank top with boy shorts or some cute undies? If youre getting the photos taken for a special man in your life, how about wearing a jersey sporting his favorite team? You dont need to be nude to create a sexy boudoir look. Sexy high heels, boots, hats, and stockings are great accessories to think about when youre shopping for the perfect look. Still not sure what to wear? Don't worry, I have a lingerie wardrobe, and we're sure to find something that works for you!

Choose accessories that compliment you

Do you have gorgeous blue eyes? Why not get some sky-colored bracelets or earrings that are really going to bring out those baby blues? A lot of women are understandably uncomfortable doing this kind of shoot. You want to buy items that are going to bring out your best features, and make you feel confident in front of the camera. If you absolutely love your legs, try a pair of fishnet stockings to add a more exotic look to your outfit.

Get dolled up!

Its not essential, but its definitely recommended to get your makeup and hair professionally done. Not to worry, I offer professional hair and makeup! This is going make you feel and look your best, and youre going to shine in front of that camera!

My job as your photographer is to make you feel as comfortable as possible during your shoot. I want to make you feel beautiful and sexy, and provide you with stunning photos. Also, I want you to have FUN during your shoot. Let my all-female staff, and myself, work with you to help you find the look youre most comfortable with, thats going to give you some dazzling photos to show off!

Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have, or to set up a fun boudoir session. I look forward to providing you with a great experience and some spectacular photographs!

Show Off Your Sexy Side With Utah Lingerie Photography

Friday, June 27th, 2014

Utah lingerie photography is a classy way to show your groom the sexy side of you.  Your bridal boudoir pictures is a wedding present that shows off sexy features of you in a tasteful fashion.

Lingerie photography is revealing the best of you.  The shoot is located based on the bride's convenience - at their home, a hotel room or at the photographer's studio.  Depending on the shoot the average time for great results is two hours - minus lighting, personal meditation and hair/makeup.  It's hard to show skin when you never done it before, but you can bring a friend if it will help you relax.

Posing in this fashion requires confidence, comfort and bravery.  Confidence because the photo will look amazing if you do and stiff if you don't, comfort because you must click with your photographer, and bravery because you will have to show some skin in front of a camera and photographer. In addition to lingerie, there's other things you can bring to the shoot.

  • Veil
  • Garter
  • Wedding shoes
  • Flowers
  • Rose Petals

    Make sure you bring more than one outfit.  You may not like the way you look in the first one, so you have the option to change.  Bring at least a light color, a dark color and a vivid color.  You are involved in the process from beginning to end, and we are dedicated to making the shoot exactly the way you want it to be.

Turning to the Past for Boudoir Outfit Recommendations

Wednesday, June 25th, 2014

Very often, when clients begin shopping and preparing for their boudoir photo session, they turn to gentlemens magazines and lingerie catalogues as guides for what to wear and how to pose.  These resources are a great start, but I would encourage women to also consider looking at models and fashion from different eras for inspiration.  Seeing how our perception of beauty has evolved and changed over the years can give us even more ideas because it makes us aware of how many ways different ways there are to be beautiful.  So, when planning the look for your boudoir photography session, why not draw some inspiration from the great beauties and trends of the past? 

1960s

Channel your inner flower child with a sheer peasant top that exposes your shoulders.  Wear a garland of wild flowers in your loose hair for a flowing yet feral look.  If you prefer the mod look of the early 60s, consider a flipped bouffant hairstyle.  Mod make up was all about the eyes; imitate Twiggys look with false eyelashes and mascara.  Lastly, base your attire on the psychedelic colors of this era.      

1950s

This era introduced us to bombshells like Marilyn Monroe.  To achieve this look, style your hair in bouncy curls.  Choose soft pastel colors for your make up.  Complete the look with dresses and negligees that emphasize your curves.  Waist cinchers and padded bras can also help you create an hourglass figure.

1940s

Vixens like Bettie Page first emerged during the 40s.  Search for thrift stores for the vintage bathing suits and lingerie made famous by these pinup girls.  Halter style tops were particularly popular in bathing suits and dresses. For your make up, make red full lips the primary focus. Hair can be styled in one of the intricate up dos like Victory rolls or left down like Veronica Lakes. 

1920s

Nothing is embodies the spirit of the 1920s than the flapper.  This was an era of decadence, so select garments made of luxurious fabrics like satin or silk.  Long pearls and diamond jewelry are also a nice touch.  Keep your makeup dark and vampy with smoky eyes and deep colored lips.  Apply lipstick in the shape of a cupids bow.           

Turning to the past for boudoir outfit recommendations is a great to explore your options and find the one that suits you best.  For more ideas or information, please contact us.
