It may be cold outside, but we are heating things up in the studio this winter. In our spacious downtown Chattanooga Boudoir Studio, we are offering winter themed boudoir sessions, perfect for Valentine's Day gifts or winter wedding anniversary gifts. Book your session today!
Boudoir photos are fun at any time of the year, however, I think one of the most fun times of the year to get creative with your boudoir outfits is during the winter time! And since it is getting colder and colder by the day, this is the perfect time to talk about some of the ideas out there. This time of year gives you options – you can do the standard lingerie photos, but you can also wear a cozy sweater or fur over your favorite bra for a sexy wintry look (you could also pair with some leg warmers or thigh high socks). I have some photos of a recent boudoir session and these winter boudoir outfits I absolutely love! They capture sleek sexiness with an added winter feel. Don’t be nervous about getting creative with your own boudoir shoot. I also happen to love the idea of boudoir photos as a surprise gift to your special someone! Do you need a gift idea for your partner for an upcoming birthday or even Valentine's Day? Look no further! If you have any questions or ideas, I would be happy to discuss them with you and help bring your creative ideas to life!
*Now accepting reservations for boudoir mini-sessions January 13th-14th 2018!
The model for this boudoir shoot, Holly, is such a trooper when it comes to offering up the perfect poses for our photo session. Choosing themes for boudoir sessions is always exciting, and there is something so classic and chic when it comes to the vintage 1940s era. When choosing the clothing for this shoot, I wanted to make sure it had a vintage flair that would be obvious and perfectly stylish at the same time. The colors of the lingerie are mostly earth tones, with a pop of color from the props in the background. This type of shoot would be perfect for a lady who is interested in a vintage bridal session with a touch of sexy that would dazzle any husband-to-be.
Haute-View is super excited to feature this high end boudoir session that was completed outdoors in sophisticated black swimwear. Taking boudoir photography outdoors can really add to the overall classic look of your photos. And what better backdrop is there than mother nature herself?
If you are interested in setting up a boudoir session with Haute-View, but want to try something out of the box, then look no further! Owner & photographer, Brittany Carpenter, loves to hear creative ideas from her clients and she can't wait to work with you!
1. Bring Extras
Did you know that you need to make sure you have extras? Extra what? Well, during a boudoir session we know that you want to do it right. You want every detail just how you pictured. So if you are investing time into your photo shoot, the very last thing you want is to have a rip in your lace corset or a tear in your stockings the day of your shoot. If you have extras, you can switch and save the shoot! In addition, don't forget to bring your favorite lip gloss along with you to reapply throughout the session to achieve that perfect, pouty look.
2. Make Sure You Spend Time Trying on and Testing Your Outfits
Over time bodies change, and a few of the outfits that used to fit you perfectly, may not fall quite into place anymore. So, if you are bringing an outfit to your boudoir photo shoot that you haven't tried on in a while, you could be in for a bit of trouble. Instead of dealing with these possible accidents, make sure you take the time to try on all the outfits you plan on wearing for your boudoir session before the shoot. Oh-and don't forget to remove all of the clothing tags so they will not show up in your sexy photos.
3. Spruce it Up!
If you color treat your hair, then make sure your hair is up to par for your photo session! I recommend maybe getting your hair done 1-2 weeks before the photo shoot. I also suggest shaving or waxing before your fun day, and maybe even springing for a mani/pedi! Remember, you are putting time and money into these pictures so make sure you do your best to cover all the basics.

Women come in all shapes and sizes, and there is beauty in every single one of them. Many of our clients are more curvy, and we work with them so they know precisely how to take advantage of this by using the angles, lighting, and poses to show just how fabulous they are! At Haute View we want to empower women to feel sensual, fearless, and gorgeous in their own skin. And we aren’t the only ones who feel this way! Supermodel Ashley Graham just launched a new lingerie line with the plus-size clothing company Addition Elle. At Addition Elle, they want every woman who wears their clothing to feel confident, beautiful and included in the fashion world. We at Haute View have picked out a few favorite photos from this collection. We hope these photos inspire you to be fearless!
Adding props to your boudoir session can take your photos to the next level, and help add a bit of personality to your pictures. Don't ever be afraid to run an idea past your photographer. If it's something that is personal and special to you, then it will most likely work well for your session. This can also be a fun way to incorporate your significant others interests into the photos!
Popular ideas for props could be:
We also keep a variety of props in the studio like jewelry, masks, fur stoles, robes, fans, and hats which all of my clients are always welcome to use.

Want to add a bit of fun and freshness to your boudoir session?
Have you thought about adding a few lovely flowers to enhance your own natural beauty while giving your session a pop of color? Well think no more, and do it! Fresh flowers add a subtle charm to your boudoir photos without you having to change your wardrobe. For example, by accessorizing your outfit with a flower crown you can instantly give your session a unique look which totally radiates your goddess-like appeal. Even if you skip out on the flower crown accessory, you can still sprinkle fresh flowers into your photos. The delicate and natural colors that the flowers add to the picture is an easy way to compliment your lingerie, pose, and the overall photo. If you are unsure about what type of flowers you want to use, feel free to ask your photographer! He or she will direct you to some of their favorite types and colors. So what are you waiting for?
Stop, and pick the roses :)
