Boudoir Photography Tip of the Week: The Art of Complimenting

“There are only three things women need in life: food, water, and compliments.” – Chris Rock


It’s no secret that women tend to battle a great many insecurities. Even the strongest and boldest of us will sometimes have to lock ourselves in the bathroom and cry about something someone said. And although we may deny it, and act modest or refute the statement whenever someone says something nice to us or about us, more times than not it makes our day, and brightens us up on the inside.

Yet, it always amazes me how some photographers still talk to women, or don’t talk to them when they are photographing them. It seems to me the most obvious of things that, if you wanted to take the best photographs, you should, you know, coax your subject so that she is relaxed and happy.

What a concept!

But sadly, this is not common knowledge, and the art of complimenting has been lost in the shuffle of better lenses and broader portfolios. So I’m going to give you some tips to help you integrate this long lost skill into your Boudoir sessions.

1. If You Don’t Say It, She May Not Know It

 Does she have fierce eyes? Great legs? Muscular arms? What is it about her that makes her uniquely stunning? Find something and tell her about it. Not only will this make her glow, but she’ll be more inclined flaunt that part, and you’ll have better photographs.

2. The Camera Loves Her!

 Alright, this one’s a bit cliché, but so few women get the chance to be a glamorous model, and bringing that element into the shoot will make her feel so much more sexy. You want to pull out her sultry side, and if she gets into the moment, convinced that she is the star of some super sexy photographs, she will give you that little extra that she would be too afraid to show otherwise.

3. Be Genuine

This ties into number 1. If you’re being inauthentic just to get a response, she’ll definitely know about it. So don’t fake it, acquire the art of appreciation, and it’s really not that hard.

XX, Marisa
