Have you taken Santa Clarita boudoir photos? Here are 11 ways to use your portraits – whether you have someone to share them with or not.
Boudoir is exciting when you’re planning it, so much fun while you’re shooting it, and potentially life-changing once you finally see the finished portraits.
It’s an experience that you have to try in order to fully understand.
But once it’s over, you might find yourself wondering …
How can I use my beautiful boudoir portraits in everyday life?
Typically, it’s not the type of shoot you would hang above your fireplace. (But if you do – we love you even more!)
So what can you do with your boudoir portraits?
Well, we’ve got a few ideas … whether you have someone to share them with or not.
How To Use Your Santa Clarita Boudoir Photos
1. The Classic SchlickArt “25 Days” Gift
You may have heard of our classic boudoir session: 25 Days of SchlickArt Boudoir. But you might also have some questions. Do I shoot boudoir for 25 days straight? Does it take 25 days to see my images? Why is it 25 days?
Well, 25 Days of SchlickArt Boudoir is designed to be an incredible gift for that special someone in your life. By selecting the full package, you’ll go home with 25 stunning matted prints plus our gorgeous keepsake box to store them in. Give one image to your lover during each day of December, from the 1st to the 25th. Then, on Christmas morning, let them unwrap the empty keepsake box with one of the pieces of lingerie they’ve only ever seen on camera. (You can also do this with the 14 days leading up to Valentine’s Day, too!)
That is the 25 Days of SchlickArt Boudoir, my darling.
2. The Sexiest Scavenger Hunt Ever
If you want to give your honey a sexy little gift – but you don’t want to wait for the holidays – you can use this trick for any special occasion, such as an anniversary or birthday. Simply create a sexy scavenger hunt! Hide your images around the house, each with a little clue. You can even make the clues sexy. For example: Go to the spot where you shared your first kiss. End your scavenger hunt in the bedroom, where you’ll be waiting … wearing the lingerie from your shoot.
3. For His Man Cave
Does your honey love a big screen TV as much as they love you? Well, boudoir images look even better on the big screen. Simply have your images playing as a slideshow when your lover walks in the door – and give them the biggest surprise of their life! The shock factor alone will leave them speechless.
4. Surprise, Surprise!
No special occasion? Even better. Surprise the hell out of them! Slip your boudoir album into your lover’s briefcase or work bag, so they find it when they least expect it. Obviously this might take a bit of planning. You’ll want to make sure your lover doesn’t find your photos in the middle of a meeting with the boss. (Or do you?)
5. When Your Lover’s Away …
Do you have a partner who travels a lot? Remind them of all the comforts of home by slipping a sexy SchlickArt viewfinder into their suitcase. You can pick and choose exactly which images you want to appear in the viewfinder, to create a custom viewing experience at home … or wherever the mood strikes.
6. A Self-love Experience
Don’t have anyone to share your images with? No problem. (Boudoir is really for you anyway!) Turn your boudoir shoot into a self-love experience. Before you come to the studio, write a love letter to yourself and seal it up. Then read your letter when you receive your finished images for the first time. As you gaze at all the incredible photos of yourself – and read your most loving words – there’s no way you won’t walk away feeling a little more beautiful.
7. The Prettiest Little Affirmation Cards
Another way to use your boudoir images to inspire a little self-love is with our calling cards. These are beautiful little wallet-sized prints you can keep handy while still being discrete. Simply write your favorite self-love quote or affirmation on the back of each card. Then set them on your dresser while you’re getting ready – or peek at them anytime you need a confidence boost. They’re custom-made to make you feel good.
8. For A Romantic Gesture
Maybe your relationship is already steamy enough, but you want to turn up the romance and create a little bit more intimacy instead. All you have to do is add some words to your images. For example, tuck a love letter, poem or song lyrics into your box of prints. If you’re married, you can even print your vows or the lyrics to your wedding song. Maybe even place little love notes inside the pages of your photo album. No matter how you do it, expressing what’s on your heart will take your boudoir portraits to the next level. (Do you have a big anniversary coming up? Shoot your boudoir session a year in advance, and throughout the year of your anniversary, you can send him a love letter and a stunning boudoir print every month.)
9. Date Night Boxes
Are you ready for this one? Because it’s one of our absolute favorites. When you purchase 12 or more matted prints from your boudoir session, your prints will come with a stunning keepsake box that ties up with a silk ribbon. Instead of gifting your images all at once, give them one at a time – in a Date Night Box. When you and your lover have a date night planned, fill the box with one new image, a piece of lingerie, and a few little goodies for you two to enjoy together. (We’ll let your imagination take it from here …)
10. A Secretly Sexy Art Piece
Whether you have someone to share your images with or not, one of the easiest ways to use your boudoir images is to hang them on the wall! Of course, a super-sexy shot of you in strappy lingerie might not be appropriate above the fireplace. (Although we don’t judge.) Framed in your bathroom or bedroom, however, it can be a sexy addition to your wall decor. We can even crop into the image, so only one part of your body is showing – that way, it looks like art.
11. A Not-so-Subtle Hint
One of the most common ways to use your boudoir images is to simply leave it for him to find – with the understanding that it means something sexy is coming later. For example, leave a portrait on your lover’s pillow before you go out for a girls night. That way, he’ll watch you walk out the door, and then spend the entire night thinking of the moment you come home. What you do once you get home is all up to you. 😉

About Lindsay’s Photography for Women
With the mind of a businesswoman and the heart of an adventurer, Lindsay began to conceive of a different kind of Santa Clarita photography business. In her vision, stepping in front of the camera could be an empowering experience that gave her clients more than just a photograph — it would give people a new way of seeing themselves. With an eye for seeing the beauty in life and in others, Lindsay could use the camera to spread beauty.
About SchlickArt Photography and Video
SchlickArt, a boutique photo and video studio in Santa Clarita, started in March 2012 with the simple idea that empowerment creates a kind of beauty and authenticity that shines through every camera lens. Built on a philosophy — rather than a product, service or person — SchlickArt has rapidly evolved, meeting professional portraiture, business photo and business video needs as diverse as the community we capture. It’s the desire to take care of you, the client, that drives us at SchlickArt.
