Why a Boudoir Photoshoot Makes Great Holiday Gifts


· tips,boudoir

Surprising your spouse, fiance or partner with an album full of sexy, initimate, beautiful images of your hot self is a great gift for the holidays. We'll break down a few reasons why (that you may have not thought of), give you some ideas on how to gift them and fill you in on important deadlines so you're not left out in the cold.

What is a boudoir photoshoot? Let’s break it down.

A boudoir photoshoot with A. Dannette Boudoir is a unique way to create a fabulous anniversary gift for your husband or partner. We capture you looking and feeling your best in sexy, gorgeous photographs. Our 100% female staff is going to take care of you from start to finish in our luxury Lafayette, LA studio . Get ready to walk away feeling the best you’ve ever felt! It is a life-changing experience for sure.

We do everything to take out all of the guesswork and make it really fun. We’ll start with professional hair and makeup with our beauty team. You will get a fabulous makeover that includes lashes and makeup to get you camera ready.

During your shoot, we’re going to tell you exactly what to do and how to pose. You don’t have to practice in front of a mirror - we’ll make you look great, no matter what!

Then, right after your shoot we’ll show you your images. You’ll see about 100 photos in the gallery. This is my favorite part - seeing your gorgeous images! The instant gratification is really, really fun!

You’ll get to pick your favorite photos and design photo products that you want to purchase. That might be a beautiful album, a digital download, or a featured wall art of yourself to hang in your bedroom! This is where you choose the gift for your beloved. Now that we’ve got that out of the way, let’s take a look at why this can be the best holiday gift idea.

Everyone Wins!

Consider a boudoir session a gift within a gift. Gift for you, gift for him. Sure you can say that this is all a surprise for him but there's a little part of you who wants it just for yourself, am I right? No judgement here sis! Imagine walking in to the studio with self-doubt, low confidence and nervous as hell and strutting out like Beyonce - feeling fabulous, empowered and the most confident you’ve ever felt! That’s a gift you can’t put a price tag on. And your partner getting a surprise to boot? that’s just an added bonus.

You get to go fall shopping.

Throwing in a few holiday or winter themed outfits into your shoot day can be fun and playful. Don’t stop just at sexy Mrs Clause - here are a few peices that photograph well and are still super hot:

  • A chunky oversized sweater
  • His favorite football jersey
  • A long, flowing sheer robe (bonus if it’s a deep red)
  • Thigh high socks
  • Teddy or bodysuit with silk ties or bows 

One gift - multiple celebrations

Do you have a fall birthday coming up? What about an anniversary? I have so many clients who come in the studio planning to gift their boudoir images not only as a Christmas gift but also as an anniversary gift. Why not surprise your partner multiple times? It’s the gift that keeps on giving.

Reconnect and Reignite 

If you and your partner have been together for a long time, I’m sure the element of surprise is hard to pull off. A boudoir shoot can relight the flame and spark in your relationship. If there’s nothing that suprises them after all these years - I can guarantee this will knock their socks off! And they will be so proud you actually went through with it.

Plan Accordingly

Good things take time and our couture boudoir albums are no exception. Booking your shoot date ASAP will ensure your products come in by the seasons’ deadlines. Our last session date for Christmas orders is Nov 22, 2023. We sell out quickly but we do have a select few dates left in October and November of 2023. So act fast!

Get Clever!

If you have one of our couture albums, wrap it in a new shirt. Place the folded shirt (secret album enclosed) in an unassuming shirt box. Once he finds the secret inside, he’ll never look at the shirt again the same way.

ADDED BONUS POINTS: Buy the shirt before your session and wear it during the shoot. The combined new shirt plus photos of you in said shirt = the hot gift that keeps on giving.

Text him a sneak peek.

Alright, maybe you spilled the beans. Or maybe he figured it out on his own. There are still plenty of ways to surprise him. He may know that you had pictures taken but he has no idea what they look like! If you purchased a collection that comes with digital files, simply text him a sneak peek! Extra points if you only send a cropped detail version of the image. Always leave him wanting more…
