The first question that many clients ask us about their intimate portrait session is almost always: What to wear? Here’s overview of some of the clothing options for your intimate portrait:

Lingerie. But you don’t have any lingerie? Or maybe you don’t like what you do have? No problem, bring along your significant other’s white shirt or maybe your own white shirt. It creates a great look and is a classic for glamour or intimate portraiture. You can see what  this option looks like here and here. Or maybe all you really need is a dress. Yes, a dress.

Nudity is inevitably the second most asked question. While this client was comfortable with it, we recognize that not everyone is. But if you want to give it a try we can do what we did with this woman, which was to ask her to gradually play with her dress until she reached her maximum (or minimum—everybody’s different) comfort zone.

When it comes to what to wear or not everyone has different comfort levels, so ultimately the decision about what to wear is up to you. This is a subject we go into in more detail in our FAQ and if you haven’t read it yet, take a look when you have time because it may answer some questions you might have about how this portrait was made and how we’ll create yours.

Every intimate portrait we make is unique; this is not a cookie cutter operation, which is why this final image has a moody, sexy look. By using your own clothing your intimate portrait is a representation of you that you and a loved one will treasure for a long time.
