Modest Ideas for a Boudoir Photoshoot

October 07, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

Modest Boudoir!?!?! Yes, you read that right. No, it’s not an oxymoron either! Yeah, I know, I know. Today, everywhere we go we are made to feel that there is something wrong with being sexy. But in truth. There is absolutely nothing wrong with feeling sexy!

However, there’s something so beautiful, romantic, and yes, even innocent, about doing a boudoir photoshoot…but also, sexiness has its place too.

For the single ladies, boudoir photography is empowering! Sure there are those who claim boudoir isn't what we make it out to be. But to see the change in the women who have entered my studio for a shoot and how they are when they leave. Sorry but actions speak louder then words. There’s just something about getting your hair & makeup done professionally, then seeing photos of your body that make you realize you are more beautiful than you ever believed & that new-found, head-to-toe confidence in yourself can help you land someone special.

I’ll admit that I’m not the most risque boudoir photographer around & that I’m very selective in what I post and even with client permission, you won’t see EVERY photo I shoot on my website.

With all that being said, I’m sharing a few modest boudoir photography shoot ideas from sessions I’ve done in the past. These looks are the perfect mixture of soft & feminine to make any woman who’s a little nervous about her boudoir shoot feel more like a princess than a vixen. Not that one is better than the other. We just understand that all different types of women come to our studio & we’ve honestly been forgetting to talk about the softer side of boudoir photography here on our blog.


Give your photo-shoot a cozy feel! Wrap yourself up in a cardigan or wear a pull-over sweater to cover up a bit more.

Button Downs

Get a little more personal and borrow a button-down shirt from your significant other. This idea helps keep things modest while also adding a personal touch to your session.


Robes are a natural option for modest boudoir sessions. They fit right in with your lingerie, sometimes even included in matching sets. We also have a few of our own robes in the studio for you to use!


There are no rules that say you must wear lingerie for your boudoir session. If you want to wear your favorite dress for one of your looks, go for it!

Ready to get your boudoir photography shoot on? I’d love to see you here at Beautiful You Studios wearing such a pretty, feminine, & tasteful boudoir outfit like one of these, or anything else you’d like to bring from home!
