Some people start rolling their eyes when they see or hear the acronym “DIY.” But the great thing about DIY boudoir is that it’s for you. No time constraints, no awkward moments, no need to run out of tabs. Also, don’t make the mistake of thinking DIY is low budget.

Just because it’s DIY doesn’t mean you have to put together a boudoir shoot on the cheap. If social media has taught us nothing, it should have taught us how to wisely choose the items we need for our DIY photo shoots and reels. I like to call it gorgeously affordable!

From colorful backdrops to trinkets, pillows, and more, there are plenty of options to make your shoot unforgettable. Think about what you want and go for it. I also take notes on different concepts and poses. If you wish, share your ideas with your closest friends for additional ideas and inspiration.
