Heels or no heels…what a very common question.
When I am doing wardrobe consultations with a client “Should I bring heels?” is one of the most common questions that I get. My answer is always the same. “It depends”.
That probably isn’t very helpful. However, I would like to preface this by saying that one of my main goals in your session is to help it represent you. The session is more about you than what you are wearing. I know, I know. That sounds backwards because when people think boudoir they think sexy photos in lingerie but that isn’t necessarily true. I can take the very same images wearing a sweater, a robe, body chain…or even nothing. Boudoir isn’t the clothing, it is the intention.
After I say “it depends,” I follow up with, “do you normally wear heels?”
If your answer is no then I will tell you not to even bother. I once had a client go out and spend $700 on a brand new pair of Christian Louboutin heels because that’s what she thought she was supposed to do. Turns out, this particular client absolutely hated heels and didn’t even want to wear them for her session! I will also be completely honest here and say that the heels really don’t show up in the images that much. I don’t focus so much on your feet. If you are a bride and you bring your wedding shoes I do make more of an effort to try to get your wedding shoes in a few shots since that is a special occasion.
If your answer is that you do wear heels quite a bit and you would like to incorporate some into your session then here are my best tips on choosing the heels that are right for your session.
