Now that you're booked and your session is quickly approaching, I'd love to share some tips and tricks that I've found help clients during their boudoir photography session. Follow this guide and you'll feel more prepared and less stressed in the days leading up to your special day!
CLOTHING - This is an important component to consider when planning your photography session. Planning in advance, however, tends to take this potentially stressful preparation out of the mix. I like to tell people to consider what look you're going for.
MAKEUP, NAILS, AND HAIR - This is another key component in creating a gorgeous image.
Please remember, taking care of these small details will vastly enhance the beauty of your images! If you are not confident in your hair and/or makeup abilities, this is why I have the option of hair & makeup for every client. :) This helps you take out the guesswork and simply enjoy being pampered before your session. *See below if you're taking advantage of our hair and/or makeup option!*
HAIR & MAKEUP ARTIST - If you are planning on using one of our preferred hair & makeup artists, we will have decided on a look prior to your session depending on if you have a specific style you're looking for. Your artist will handle everything necessary in order to create a gorgeous appearance. Plan to show up with clean hair and no makeup to ensure a blank palette. :)
GLASSES - Sometimes, glasses tend to create a reflection from our studio lighting. If this is problematic, I will capture some shots of you with and without glasses. Then, I will edit them correctly to ensure your photo is without any distracting reflections.
SUSTENANCE - Please make sure you aren't starving yourself! I know this can be a cause of insecurity, however, if you are "hangry", you won't enjoy your session. Having said that, don't eat right before your shoot. This could definitely cause bloating and sluggishness. Neither of which will help you feel sexy. ;) Plan to eat a couple of hours prior to your shoot. This helps to avoid any cravings, but gives your body enough time to process and avoid that full feeling.
PLAN AHEAD - Give yourself enough time. Try to avoid rushing around right before your portrait session. If you feel rushed and stressed out, this will definitely be reflected during your session. Planning ahead as much as possible will help your session day go smoothly.
LAST BUT, CERTAINLY, NOT LEAST - Be excited! Boudoir sessions are legit the most fun! We're capturing something you'll be proud you captured when you're older. Be in the moment. I want you to be able to look back on these images with fond memories.
