Krystiee Lee's Boudoir Guide
In this guide I'll be giving you the rundown on your shoot from what to expect during the session, clothing and location ideas and even a FAQ section where you can see answers to some of my clients most common questions leading into a Boudoir session.
What the F%CK Do i wear?
During your shoot you will get to decide which level of undress is most comfortable for you. Some clients end up fully nude while others opt for more modest bodysuits or even oversized tees. It's all about what works for you-- what makes you feel conﬁdent, secure, and most of all- relaxed.
HERE ARE A FEW TIPS FOR WARDROBE...
Choose lingerie that reﬂects your personality and style. If you're not the one for lace, or if you don't love the strappy look, pick something that is more true to you.
Make sure you are comfortable in what you wear. I suggest going through what you already own to ﬁnd something to wear. If you want to buy something, take time trying it on and testing it out at home-- is it comfortable, can you move, is it ﬂattering?
Know your body type. Wear clothing that ﬁts your body. If you're comfortable, pop into a lingerie store that has a variety of options so you can see what looks best. All bodies are beautiful and unique-- take time to ﬁnd what works best. If you feel like you look good, your conﬁdence will be visible in your photos.
If your shoot is outside, bring some layers and options.
Ask for help! I have a mini studio closet with a few lingerie options and more! I am here to help will be your personal stylist and provide you with outﬁt and lingerie ideas before your session.
TRY TO AVOID
- Lingerie that doesn't ﬁt right. It can be SUUUUUPER common to get lingerie that is too tight. Pay attention to ﬁt. TRUST ME ON THIS!
- Wearing tight ﬁtting clothing prior to your shoot. Tight clothing can crease the skin and make awkward lines, which i can totally photoshop out of your images but lets try to avoid that. Try wearing something comfortable on your way to the shoot so your skin is smooth upon arrival.
As of right now, I rent out several boudoir studios within the houston area. My top favorite location is A GORGEOUS vintage loft in the heart of downtown Houston, It is pretty much where I do 90% of my luxury boudoir shoots because of the space, the lighting, and the overall tones throughout the studio. This does not have to be your studio though, trust me... The options are limitless, and if you want more info on other studios definietlety reach out!

Depending on your unique vibe and style, a hotel may be the perfect place for your session. Think vintage grandeur or sleek, modern styling. Hotels generally have large windows and sheer curtains making them the perfect space for boudoir! This session is all about you so if you envision a hotel, we can discuss it!

How To Prepare
Preparing for your session is just as important as the session itself. There are some things you can do to best prepare yourself and we are going to go over all of them!
THE WEEK BEFORE
• Get a manicure. Cleaning up those nails is important because we will use your hands expressively during your shoot. If you have a manicure done before the session, depending on your style, you may want to stick with a more classic neutral color or french style. If you're going bold for your session, then go bold with your nail color!
• Avoid fake tanning unless you are a frequent tanner and know what you are doing.
• IF you decide you want to get a wax before your shoot, schedule your wax at LEAST a week before your shoot to avoid bumps and redness.
• Ensure your outﬁt selection ﬁts and is comfortable,
• Lower your salt intake and avoid alcohol if you're worried about retaining water.
THE DAY BEFORE
• Wash your hair. If you wash your hair the day of your session it may be harder to style. That second day hair is perfect for stylists!
• Pack your bag so you're not thinking about it the day of your shoot!
THE DAY OF
• Be sure to lotion your legs.
• Eat something light, but ﬁlling, before you leave home for your shoot.
• Put on clear deodorant.
• If you're having your makeup done on location, moisturize your face and arrive
without makeup on! We have you covered!
• Wear something loose and comfortable to avoid lines and creases on the skin. Try a maxi dress.
