Here are a couple of excerpts from the articles (please do not copy):

As you go into your shoot, you will likely feel most confident in lingerie or outfit choices that are in line with your unique personal style. This is not to say that you can’t venture out and play with different looks, but the idea here is to avoid choosing outfits that are counter to the way you would normally express yourself; a very conservative gal is unlikely to exude confidence in front of the camera while dressed in Gothic lingerie and black leather boots. Be playful and have fun dressing up, but do think about your comfort level and most of all, be true to you! - from the “What To Wear” article

Girl’s night out just doesn’t come often enough for most of us! With all the hats that women wear, everyone deserves the chance to take a break from her responsibilities, to share some uninterrupted time with good friends and to be pampered by someone else for a change; it’s good for the body and soul! Next time girl’s night out comes around, consider a great alternative to the usual “drinks at happy hour” by taking part in a group boudoir portrait party! - from the “Girl’s Night In” article

From the article:

Boudoir Photography Party How-To

Here is a great article on how to throw a successful boudoir photo party from Christa Meola’s blog:

From the article:

Style three “Sets” and Prep your Equipment

That means each “set” should be a unique location, even if you’re in a tiny hotel room. Move beyond the bed for two set ups: try gorgeous backlighting in front of the window, in front of a full length mirror, at the vanity in the bathroom, in the hotel shower, on a chaise lounge, at the hotel suite’s front door, laying on the floor or on top of the coffee table – I’ve tried it all. Find what works and looks great well in advance, start visualizing your ideas, move furniture, remove distractions, and style it up.
