MRSter is excited to present this post from Kinzie Ferguson, of {MRSter Approved} The Empowerment Photographer. Kinzie is a truly amazing photographer who has an awesome ability to help people connect in ways that reflect their love and commitment in stunningly gorgeous fashion. Her comments follow:

As the Empowerment Photographer, I create space for couples to connect (or reconnect) in intimate, powerful, couples boudoir sessions. It’s a time to focus on your partner, to unplug from the rest of the world, to cozy up, love each other really hard, and add some kindle to the fire that you’re building together.

Doing a couples boudoir session is so much fun, but if you’ve never done one before, there can be a lot of unknowns. Here are my top five tips for making sure you can get the most out of your session, and end up with photos that you love!

1 :: Find a photographer you trust (and like!). Your photographer should help you feel safe and confident the entire time. When I photograph my couples, I make sure they know exactly what to do with their bodies and their facial expressions at all times. You should never have to wonder if you’re “doing it right” or if you look good.

Don’t worry, though! Your session won’t look stiff and posed — when you know exactly what to do with your body, it allows you and your partner to interact naturally, resulting in genuine, connected images!

2 :: Talk about the session with your partner. Figure out what their fears may be in being photographed; ask them what they’re most excited about, and what they’re hoping to get out of the photo shoot. It could be that you’re approaching this experience from very different perspectives, and knowing what’s going on in your partner’s brain can make the experience even more intimate.

3 :: Wear what makes you comfortable. Don’t try to squeeze into something that is too small, and don’t go out and buy something you would never want to wear in your own home. Dig into your closet, ask your partner what they love seeing you in. Use this as an excuse to go shopping if you want to, but make sure you only invest in items that make you look and feel great!

4 :: Take time before your session to do something wonderful together. Write each other love notes and bring them to your session. Go out to lunch and don’t look at your phones the entire time. In fact, turn your phones OFF for the entire day of your session. Take a long bath, go get massages, do yoga! Have sex! Indulge in the time you have leading up to your session, which will not only put your minds in the right brain space, but will also help you be open to the powerful effects of your session.

5 :: Don’t be afraid to laugh! I’m all about finding the sexy in your images, but it’s also so important that the energy of your relationship can also come through. Let’s face it – being photographed while semi-naked can get a little ridiculous, and when it strikes you in the middle of your session just how silly it all feels? LAUGH! Giggle. Grab your partner and hug them! Posing rules are made to be broken. It’s in those moments that we find the true joy and connection that you and your partner share.

Now, I know it’s not possible for every single person reading this to book a session with me tomorrow (but if you want to, come visit me in Kansas City, MO!! I’ll greet you with open arms, awesome dance moves, and probably a plate full of nachos). I do encourage you to look for a photographer you love and trust enough to do a couples boudoir session with. This is an intimate experience, and you should be thrilled to have your photographer guiding you through this sexy, empowering time!

And in the meantime, carve out some time with your partner, snuggle into their side, find what makes them special, and love on them really hard. They are worth it, and so are you.
