Plan & Prep
Planning, anticipating and preparing for your boudoir photo shoot is half the fun! Once you have paid your retainer and signed the contract let the prep begin!
IMPORTANT THINGS TO CONSIDER
Fingernails and toenails should be groomed and looking clean. Neutral tones are always a great choice.
The best self tanner is St. Moriz and most affordable. You can find it at Ulta for $10. Make sure to purchase the application glove!! When you’re home, use a glove and rub it on generously the night before your session. Sleep in a long sleeve and sweat pants. This stuff does not smell pretty, but the results are awesome! The next morning rinse off in the shower for perfect results!
If you have clip-in extensions, bring them!
Make sure your eyebrows are groomed.
If you wax, do so a few days before your shoot to avoid any bumpiness or redness.
Try on your outfits and lingerie to make sure they fit properly. Nobody cares if the underwear are a small or large, if it's too small, it shows! So cut the tag out and forget about it!
Plan a fun night out afterwards with your girlfriends or partner. You're going to look like a boudoir babe!
Take some time before your shoot to practice your facial expressions in the mirror (RBF is not what were going for on the day of your session!) I will be coaching you throughout the shoot to make sure you have the perfect expressions, but a little practice is always a good idea!
The day of
Wear loose comfortable clothing to the shoot; clothes that bind will leave marks. Yoga pants and a tank with a hoodie is great. Put these on as early as you can because red marks can take hours to disappear. If you can go without a bra and underwear that is ideal, just remember to bring something to wear after the shoot!
Arrive with clean and moisturized skin. No makeup please.
Be sure to eat something with protein before your session to keep your energy up for the session.
