SESSION PLANNING GUIDE

Oh Dear...What Shall I Wear?

Boudoir photography doesn't always equal lingerie.  My goal with your session is to tell a bit of a story.  So think about your style, your favorite things, what you would be found doing home alone on a Sunday morning. 

Some ideas.....

  • A bra and panty set. They don't have to match.

  • A cute fitted t shirt with undies.

  • A body suit.

Do you follow me on Instagram?  Lot's of inspiration over there!

BOUDOIR TIMELINE


2-3 WEEKS BEFORE YOUR SESSION

  • Get your hair done. I don't recommend trying anything new right before your session. If you hate your hair, you'll hate your pictures.

  • Make all your girly maintenance appointments such as mani/pedi and waxing appointment. I DO NOT recommend tanning beds or spray tans. Both tend to appear orange on camera. I recommend a neutral color on nails.

  • Try on wardrobe if you haven't already to make sure everything fits and there isn't something missing or ripped etc...

THE WEEK OF YOUR SESSION

  • Get a mani/pedi

  • Wax

  • Drink extra water. It will help your skin to look amazing.

THE NIGHT BEFORE YOUR SESSION

  • Shave if you don't wax.

  • Get a good night's sleep.

  • Go through wardrobe and make sure you have everything you need including accessories.

THE MORNING OF YOUR SESSION

  • Shave if you haven't waxed.

  • Moisturize your face and body.

  • Breathe. If you're nervous (most women are) take a moment and remind yourself that this is going to be one of best experiences you've ever had. Girl, you got this. I promise.

  • As far as hair and makeup goes, if you will be doing it yourself keep in mind that the camera will cut your makeup down about 30%. So feel free to go a little heavier than normal. False lashes photograph fantastic and I highly recommend them. If you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed in the makeup department I have found that ladies at Sephora typically do a great job or check with your local salon! Many salons also offer makeup application.

Where do I go the day of my shoot?

The WA mini sessions will be held at The Blank Space.
