TOP 10 PREP IDEAS FOR YOUR BOUDOIR SESSION
#1: BRING THAT ROBE
Bring a robe with you. You can put it on between shooting…or not. Either way it makes a great additional outfit and accessory.
#2: SOME VINO WOULD BE KINO
You are welcome to bring a small bottle of wine. If it affects your skin or eyes, remember that will show in your photos. I would recommend you refrain, or keep it to a minimum if that happens to you. Otherwise, cheers!
#3: HIRING YOUR OWN MAKE-UP ARTIST?
If you hire your own make-up artist, I can’t recommend one that air brushes enough. The camera and studio lighting will favor it. And the end result will benefit from it.
#4: MORE IS MORE AND MORE IS BETTER
Always bring more outfits than you plan to wear. Better to have options, and we can mix items and outfits together. If we don’t like an item, we won’t feel bad moving on. You can also bring that everyday outfit you think can be made super hot!
#5: WHAT TO WEAR ON THE WAY IN TO YOUR BOUDOIR SESSION
When you travel to the shoot wear loose garments like sweatpants or the kind and nothing underneath. This way unwanted panty / bra / jean lines don’t form and show in the final images.
#6: SPRAY TANS
If you are going to spray tan, try and tan at least 2 days in advance of the shoot. Be sure to cover all of the areas you can. And remember, you might be showing more than normal.
#7: SAY NOT TO FLUORESCENT COLORS
Most colors work really well in camera. Some that do not, include: fluorescent colors and sometimes red and turquoise. If you love it, we can always try it.
I say yes to it! Accessories only add to you. I’m typically a fan of classic pearls and delicate items. You can always bring that funky one off item you bought and have no idea what to do with. And we can try and make it work.
#9: SHAVING SOMETHING?
Be sure to shave at least 1 day in advance. This helps to reduce redness and any other irritation to the skin.
Bring as many as you want. Bring at least one pair of black and a skin-colored heel. The higher the heel the better. Bring those extra strappy ones you love so much.
