Boudoir photographers, like those at Light Images, capture romantic, tasteful, intimate, and sometimes erotic images of women. Boudoir photographs are typically taken for the private enjoyment of the subject and their romantic partner, but they can be taken for a variety of reasons. Modern boudoir photography is seen as empowering, and it can encourage women to celebrate their beauty and their sexuality. It should also be a fun experience, and dressing up in a costume for some of the shots can help women capture a fantasy on film. Here are some fun costume ideas for your boudoir photography shoot.


Being strong and powerful can be sexy! Dress up in lingerie or a sexy costume that brings to mind your favorite superhero. Whether it's a "W" on your chest to represent the Wonder Woman that you are or a red cape over perhaps no other clothing to represent a sexy side to Supergirl, go for what your heart desires with this photo shoot.

Vampire Glamour

Ever since Twilight captured the imagination of romance lovers everywhere, vampire stories and movies have become more popular than ever. Embrace your inner sparkly vampire by putting on glitter body makeup and posing in a vampire-themed sexy costume. You may go for all black lingerie and add a black cape or go for something that defies all stereotypes. An apple in the shot set-up as a reference to Twilight is optional.

Cinderella Gets a Fella

While many little girls have a Cinderella fairy tale fantasy, not all grown-up women embrace it. Dress up in a sexy Cinderella ensemble to embrace the fairy tale lover inside of you. This can include wearing a crown along with light blue lingerie or a delicate blue dress with a plunging neckline that reveals a lot of cleavage. It's up to you how far you want to take this fairy tale theme.

50 Shades of Fun

Most people are aware of the runaway success of 50 Shades of Grey. This erotic tale of a billionaire man with a strong kinky side and a demure but intelligent young women who defies submission. Dress up as the fascinating character of Anastasia for your boudoir photo shoot. You can do this with your costume alone or also include tantalizing props that are sure to pique your partner's imagination.

Finally, keep in mind that the only limit to your boudoir photography session is your imagination. You can plan any costume or scene that you'd like as long as your photographer is on board and happy to capture it for you. Be sure to let your photographer know if you have any questions or need special accommodations for the photo shoot that you want to do.
