Christian Gray inspired boudoir portraits
When it comes to boudoir props and accessories, here at Johanna Elizabeth anything goes (within reason!)
We’re delighted when women bring in a set of their favourite fluffy handcuffs, a leather corset, knee-high leather boots, feathers or a sky-high pair of Louboutin heels, for example.
We love having the opportunity to create some fabulous photos of you incorporating your favourite accessories. It’s a really fun part of the process!
Boudoir props and accessories
In our own boudoir prop stash, we also have a wide selection of accessories. You’re very welcome to use something of ours if it takes your fancy.
We’re always buying new items too. So, even if you’ve been to us before, you’ll certainly be spoilt for choice!
That said, if you do have something at home that would be perfect for this theme then do bring it along.
You can personalise your boudoir pictures that way, which helps to make them feel all the more special and meaningful.

What boudoir photoshoot props and accessories might work well?
The boudoir props and accessories you choose to bring along and use is completely up to you.
Every woman we photograph is unique and will have different preferences and tastes. It’s only really you who will know what feels right and what might not.
As with all of our portraits shoots though, you will be invited to a pre-shoot Design Consultation. This is when we’ll chat about all the finer details and can talk this through with you.
We’ll make a plan for your shoot day, and it’s also when you have the opportunity to ask any questions that you may have.
We’ll smooth over any photoshoot nerves and can give you tips on the best boudoir poses and what to wear.

You decide what portraits we set up and YOU choose which boudoir props and accessories we include and how they’ll be used.
Our photography studio is a completely safe space for you to be who you want to be in your portraits.
Is a 50 Shades of Boudoir shoot for you?

One thing we always say is that although your photos can be the perfect treat for your partner, a boudoir experience should always primarily be a treat for you.
There aren’t many opportunities in life where you can show just how gorgeous and beautiful you are, but boudoir is an experience that makes sure the spotlight is solely on you. Yor are so worth it!
