How many outfits do you need for a Boudoir Shoot?

This is one of the most asked questions. A Boudoir shoot is an investment in itself, plus now you have to go shopping!! All photographers work differently and shoot for different amounts of time. I personally find that 1 1/2 to 2 hrs seems to be the sweet spot! After 2 hrs most of my clients are done, after posing for 2 hours straight and need a break! Posing is a lot of work!!

 I usually allow about 20 mins per outfit, so if we shoot for 2 hrs then that's about 4 outfits including changes. I would also allow a variety of shapes and color in your outfits so its not 4 sets of black bras and panties!! 

I keep a few bodysuits and some lace coverups to fill in here and there if needed. 

Then theres always the implied nudes if my clients want to do that, so I include that in outfits as I like to allow 15 mins at the end. I use sheets, fabric or posing to stay covered in all the right places!!
