It is totally natural for your subjects to feel vulnerable or insecure during a shoot, but a boudoir session requires an extra level of professionalism and sensitivity from the photographer. This excellent video discusses many things you should avoid saying to your client during a boudoir session.
Coming to you from Michael Sasser, this helpful video discusses a range of things you should not say during a boudoir photoshoot and what you can say instead. A boudoir shoot is all about making your subject feel safe and confident, and it is important to carefully consider the way you interact with your client to ensure successful sessions. While the most important reason for this is making your subject feel safe and free to be vulnerable in front of the camera, it is also important because making them comfortable translates to better photographs. If your subject is comfortable, you will be able to get more natural poses and expressions, and as such, the final images will be much stronger by virtue of their better connections. Being proficient with your camera is just the beginning of what's needed to be successful. Check out the video above for lots of helpful tips from Sasser.
