How to do a Holiday Themed Boudoir Shoot

We’re entering the holiday season, or if you’re me and have been playing Christmas carols on a loop since Halloween, we are already deep in the holiday season! The perfect way to celebrate this upcoming season? A boudoir shoot of course!

Whether as a holiday treat for yourself, or for someone else, the holiday season is a great excuse for doing something a little special. Make it even more festive and go full holiday happy with a themed shoot. Here’s how!

A Festive Outfit

Red and green are traditional colors and they can be such fun to play with! Santa’s hat makes the perfect accessory for an all-black outfit. Or add a festive touch to your bridal boudoir shoot with the traditional red cap and remember your winter wedding fondly for years to come!

What about some fantastic naughty/nice signs to match different outfits? Or think about all the fun things you could do with bows and gift boxes? ‘Tis the season to DIY after all!

Christmas Music

Set the mood at your shoot with holiday music! Let’s be real-I’ll have tons on my phone, but definitely bring your fave holiday mix, whether that be Jimmy Buffet or the Mormon Tabernacle choir.

Music is such a mood-setter, and bringing those Christmas tunes will really make you feel that warm holiday spirit! Also cozy sweaters- always tons of fun to photograph, and perfect to wear as the days keep getting colder!

Start Early

It’s November and the time is now! Don’t leave your boudoir present until Christmas Eve! The holiday season is crazy for everybody- I totally get it. But I also don’t want you to worry over whether your photos will be ready in time.

So while it may feel odd to do a Christmas shoot before December, remember that the photos will be ready just in time to be put under the Christmas tree.

Let’s Get Festive!

Spending time with friends and family is really awesome, and I love that we put that to the top of our lists this time of year. I hope everyone is getting excited for the holiday season!
